Kelsey Proper Blog Post 8/14/14

Soooooooo, yea I’ve been kind of really slacking on this whole Blog posting-updating thing…Whoops!
I’ve been super busy with work, and gym, and trying to enjoy the summer!

So heres the goods as of lately:

Training has been going pretty well, Todd and I have continued to kill it (because we’re beasts).
Still in the gym 6 days a week.
Managing to find enough time to sleep 7-8 hours a night.

The Bads:

I went up north last weekend. Why is this bad you ask? It’s not! It was a fantastic time! Before I left last Friday I cooked all my food that I would need for the weekend and packed it up in my sweet cooler thing (It’s pretty funny that my cooler was bigger and it took me longer to do all my food prep than it did to pack my clothes and stuff). So yea anyways, proceeded to drive 4 hours north.
So heres where it goes bad. What was the first thing that I did when I got to the cabin? Had a beer. And not like a light beer with low carbs and calories… I had my favorite, Budweiser. I’m not going to lie, it was absolutely delicious.
Well this started my weekend of bad decisions. Long story short, started drinking about 1 PM on saturday. I didn’t get crazy or anything, but socially drank into the evening with my Mom (hehe). I ended up taking home most of the food that I prepared for the weekend, and drank almost 2 gallons of water on Sunday.

Now this led to a Monday of just feeling like shit. I felt horrible because of the awful food that I ate over the weekend, and I was retaining so much water it was ridiculous. All I could think of is how disappointed I was in myself. It sucked just thinking about all the hard work that I put into this stuff just to get off track. But then I kind of sat back and was like hey, no ones perfect. The best thing that I can do right now is get back on track and make sure that I don’t make myself feel that way again. One foot in front of the other!

So with that said, this is something that I kind of struggle with. I’m a very social person, I love people and being around them. I love going out and doing things, and I loveeee my friends. Hardest part about that is the fact that not many of the people I surround myself with make the gym as much of a priority as I do. And the only time I get to see them is out at the bar, or meeting up for a drink or something. I may have a few drinks, but then its like.. why? Why am I killing all my hard work in the gym!? But at the same time, I like to have a good time and get together with people. Its a fine line that I walk with this, and sometimes it gets frustrating. Its especially hard with summer.
Butttttt, just have to keep my priorities straight!

I guess thats all that I have for the day.
I will make sure that I get back on here and post more frequently!!!!

There will be more videos to come too :]
