My sister so lovingly pointed out yesterday that I go through blog spurs, where I write and post a bunch and suddenly fall off the face of the planet for weeks on end. Yea, I know she’s right as much as it pains me to admit it. It’s pretty dang hard being a full-time college student and working three jobs ok?? STOP RUBBING IT IN! Haha just joking, but the reason why I haven’t been writing so much, aside from the fact that I’ve been so busy, is because I’ve been digging a lot into a different kind of diet/lifestyle that kind of contradicts some of the previous practices and posts I’ve shared. BE PREPARED: this post will be an essay.
I’m officially now seven weeks into a three-month workout series entitled the Bikini Body Workout that I started NOT to get a bikini body but to build lean muscle and strength endurance before I begin track next spring. The Bikini Body Workout consists of targeted and full body HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts that require a lot more muscle work than my normal average run. Because of this workout change, I began to to dive deeper into diet-workout relationships and what it really takes to build the look and feel of lean muscle mass. Thus, resulting in my new craze: eating by your macros.
