Monday blues are a thing right? Because I certainly have them after this weekend.
I came crashing back down to earth with a bump this morning when I remembered that I’m training for a competition 🙃.
I’ve loved spending my weekend in London with Anna. We both bought birthday presents to one another that involved a jam packed weekend of girlie fun & we honestly did not stop! We started by watching Dream Girls at the Savoy (which was Annas gift to me) on Saturday afternoon and it blew my mind! After leaving there on a high we went to Chiltern Firehouse and were treated like royalty! The food was so so good and the service was by far the best I’ve ever received in a restaurant. I devoured their Steak Tartar, Iberico Pork and Cheese board and don’t regret a single bloody mouthful!
But you have a competition soon AND STRUGGLE TO MAKE WEIGHT I hear you cry. And I know that. But I promised myself I’m going to enjoy this weekend that we’ve had planned for ages and I did 😁.
My gift to Anna was a table at Dans Le Noir! If you’ve never heard of it, have a google and please go and experience it! We had the taster menu which meant we had no choice in what food was put in front of us. Let’s just say I never would have picked off the menu what I ate but I was definitely surprised. I don’t want to go into too much detail just incase you get the opportunity to go so all I will say is, don’t wear white.
Now I did have a slight panic on the train last night, thinking shit Jazz you’ve well and truly ruined all that hard work. But do you know what I weighed in this morning at 55.5kg! I put on just over half a kg! That’s it! I have never been so happy to put on weight before 🤣. I honestly thought that the scales were going to be in the 56s, so I left the gym this morning after a lovely little bench session with Danny in a very good mood.
It’s going to be strange this week not having Danny around to train with. He jumps on his flight to Helsinki this afternoon ready to compete in the World Classic Bench Press championships (try and say that quickly). I can’t wait to sit down on Saturday with the live stream on my laptop to watch him take to the platform in his GB singlet and scream at him to push it through the ceiling whilst probably chomping on chicken and veg!
🇬🇧 Good Luck Danny, go do what you do best! 🇬🇧
Training last week seemed good, I hit all my numbers which is what we want. It’s so strange though that one week I can hit 110kg squat for 5 and then a week later hit 2 reps and feel like i struggled through them both. I know it’s all down to what I’m eating, how much sleep I’ve had, how active I’ve already been that day but it really starts to mess with your head.
I do find that this whole journey is more testing on my mental strength then my physical. Which is why it’s so important to have those breaks with your friends! Go out for the meal you’ve craved for weeks. Have the bloody white chocolate Magnum. Make memories and do what makes you happy!
Then get right back on the grind and go again 💪🏼Love J 💌
