I don't know when I will have to time to back-post my training/nutrition for the past two weeks...I may just have to pick up where I am at the time...

Despite numerous distractions and personal events which have occurred over the past two weeks, and in addition to my typical busy schedule, I'm pretty much on track. I did miss a couple of workouts, and there were a few days in which my nutrition wasn't exactly on point...But I don't think I did too bad, considering what my past two weeks have been like...

My weight was 109.2 lbs this morning, which is the (max) 0.5 lb per week loss I am aiming for (I weighed 110.2 on June 3rd). I just hope that the weight loss is mostly body fat, and not lean mass. I plan on having a body comp test done soon to make sure.

Well, it's been just over two weeks since my last post. To say that June was a whirlwind would be a huge understatement! My stress level and lack of sleep (since mid-June, I've been averaging only about 3 hours daily) really took a lot out of me, and totally derailed any chance of me competing next month. The week after my last post here, my weight dropped way too fast, and based on my most recent body comp test, almost of that weight loss was lean mass. I'm obviously in a very catabolic state right now. :(

I doubt if I'll be posting here very much for a while, at least not until I can get a better handle on things, and get my metabolism back to normal. But that won't happen until I can begin getting adequate sleep and get my cortisol level under control...Hopefully, that will happen sooner, rather than later...

Hi Michelle,

Just wanted to say how much of an inspiration you have been. I'm not looking to compete, just eat healthy and get in good shape and your nutrition information has been really helpful. Thanks so much!!! I noticed that you work in a hospital, are you by chance a nurse??? I am a nurse on an oncology unit working night shift, and it's great to see someone in such great shape who does shift work too!

Thanks!
