This is an awesome log! Keep up the great work and wish you all the best. On a side note I would love to see some video footage of your HIIT sessions in those high heels you were wearing on page one.
MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY
"We keep going back, stronger, not weaker, because we will not allow rejection to beat us down. It will only strengthen our resolve. To be successful there is no other way." - Earl G. Graves
HIIT - Run:
a. 4 min jogging
b. 12 x 20 sec sprint/10 sec easy
c. 10 min jogging
Shoulders/Hamstrings (1 min recovery between sets):
1. Behind-the-neck BB Military Press 6 x 15, 15, 12, 12, 10, 10
2. BB Military Press 6 x 12
3. Single-Arm DB Lateral Raises 6 x 15 per arm
4. Stiff-Legged BB Deadlifts (BB to touch floor) 6 x 12
Post-Weights Cardio - Rollers:
20 min in 39x18 @ 100 rpm
Stretch 22 min.
Sleep - Time and Quality: ~5 hours.
Mood/Aggression: Keeping my spirits up - hope is a beautiful thing in times of darkness.
Energy: Definitely there.
Mental Focus and Clarity: There is no time for wandering minds today.
Joints: My left ankle gave out under me yesterday afternoon. During HIIT and my walk to the library (this reminded me why I used to spend hours walking the streets in the dark in New Plymouth - so calm and still), it reminded me tenderly that it was to be treated with more care.
Strength: More reps with the same weight as last week - improvement.
Pump: Very strong from the first set.
Vascularity: Now that it is getting warmer, this is here to stay!
Quality of Training: HIIT was great. Sprints were really explosive. Left ankle was niggling throughout it, but managed to ignore it . . . Resistance training was also top notch. Ploughing through the exercises, ignoring the painful pump burn that I was feeling after the first half . . . Rollers' recovery afterwards . . .
Recovery: The rollers are definitely helping my legs.
Body Composition and Look: 115.8 pounds at 10% bodyfat - so not quite sub-10%, but close. -0.6% bodyfat over the last week, which means I am totally on track! . . . Have been told repeatedly over the last week that my arms look the best they have ever done re muscle mass and definition. I've also noticed re my arms over the last few days that each side looks like it could belong to completely different people, because my left side has strong definition and more muscle mass than my right, which is odd since I am right-handed and my left side is weaker, but then again, after breaking my left wrist, maybe my left side has compensated for it? . . . Either way, pleased with progress . . .
Other Notes: Not every opportunity we want we are going to be given in life, and sometimes if we want something, we have to create that opportunity ourselves! Those who know what they want take the risk and go after it, making it happen! Nothing happens by sitting still and hoping that it happens to you; you've got to MAKE it happen! If you don't take the risk, you'll never know what could have been. I've stepped out and created one of my opportunities, hoping, but having faith that if I am supposed to be there, I will be given the chance.

Great Post, very uplifting.
Rosie you are back in school right? Was wondering what you advise for low energy/brain fog when on a cut. I'm getting very tired lately trying to concentrate.
Keep killin' it Rosie! I know ull do what you need to do to make all ur dreams and aspirations come true.
I myself enjoy walks at night due to the quietness and standstill of everything. Im able to think so clear and precise. Definitely an enjoyment.

As far as low energy/brain fog on a cut, I can't really relate to the cut, but I can the low energy, etc. When I was studying and doing all-nighters (at least once a week for ~3 years, and then almost every day when exams came around, especially in my final degree year), I started out using caffeine (No-Doz) tabs, and then stacked RPM with caffeine, sometimes, using Hot-Rox Extreme as well. My final year, the caffeine and stimulants ended up making me fall asleep though (I had my first bout of Chronic Fatigue that year), so I just had to get through trying to concentrate really hard. I think now I'd just dose a serving of Assault - Sean uses preworkout products for study (along with multiple energy drinks - I can't stand those things) and it helps him.
Yeah - now that it's nice and warm at night, I might start doing them again (never done them here really, unless walking home from the gym at night).
I know everyone is busy just wanted to say
thanks for taking the time to a thorough log.
So it looks as if I'm super late but I sub'd quietly a while ago, lol
