Default I\'m back!

Well, I never really left!

I was in the dumps last week and hurt my lower back, so I took a few days off. Lemme tell ya, it worked wonders!

I had a great arm/cardio day today! I rearranged my split to fit better with my school/work schedule. Things look pretty good!

I'm still going through some crappy times right now, but at least I can get rid of those negative vibes at the gym.

How's everybody doing? [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Hi Elle! Welcome back. I'm curious to know how tall you are. We have very similar stats! I've been lifting for 6 months now and I'm planning to add a couple days of HIIT. I've never done that before. (see post in hardcore training)

I'm 5'3". It's encouraging to see someone is near the same place as myself. :-)

Welcome back Elle!! Say, how's that whole food diet regime coming along? Still feeling good with it?
It is better to have tried to failure than to never have tried at all....Go hard or go home!

Glad you could join us!

It's tough being on the top champ. But the time off probably did wonders for your body!

I'm fighting a cold that continually seems on the verge of sneaking up on me!

I am doing great on the whole foods thing! I have firmed up considerably. I think I was holding a lot of water. I feel great and I am days away from my period, so that says a lot! My PMS symptoms (physically &amp; psychotically....LOL) are a lot less extreme. Yes I still feel like cutting my bangs at any moment, but the urge to pick up the scissors is manageable.

I have increased my carbs a bit too....my cravings have almost disappeared! I may not be on the "ideal" cutting diet, but I am on one that I can mentally maintain through everyday life and not obsess about.

I still fit in my old jeans that I couldn't even sqeaze into at the beginning of the challenge! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Yeah baby! The "Jeans-O-Meter" never lies!
