I know this post is coming super late, but at least I am posting. That's progress for me. This week has been super hard for some reason, even though I feel like I've started with smaller goals. my only two goals were to not eat fast food and complete the first week of Insanity: Max 30. So, I thought I would reflect on my week so far...
Day 1: I could not get my ass out of bed (you'll notice this is a theme throughout the week). So, I committed to working out after work...AND I DID! That's pretty good for me. I thought I worked out pretty hard, and I was okay with myself. However, today I don't think that I pushed to my max. I did the plyo as long as I could and then did the modification. Even with this strategy, I maxed out at minute 4. I'm not very happy about that, but I guess there's no where to go but up, right? My food was also pretty on point this day as well. I had a shake, a health choice frozen meal, and grilled chicken with veggies.
Day 2: I still could not get my ass out of bed. However, unlike the previous day, I couldn't work out after work. Instead, I ate pizza hut with my wife (I had the veggie one, but I had a lot of it) and then went to Bible study. I did have a salad for lunch though. The one thing I was kind of disappointed with was that I wasn't sore. That makes me think I didn't dig as deep as I could have (or I have awesome vitamins, but I'm pretty sure it's the latter). Bible study was nice though. We started the Book of Ruth.
Day 3 (TODAY!): Today was a combination of day 1 and 2. I couldn't get my ass out of bed (who is surprised). I DID workout after work today, and I pushed myself harder. I reached my peak heart rate for 6 of the 30 minutes. Those in and out abs and squat lunges killed me though. I ate the rest of my pizza for lunch, a salad for dinner...then my wife showed me her secret stash of ice cream sandwich cookies. UGH....
Tomorrow, I'm going to get my ass out of bed. I am going with my supervisor to a meeting tomorrow, so Im not sure what eating will look like. If anything, I'm starting to make better choices and am holding myself more accountable than I have previously. We will see how this progresses.
