Well if you look at my picture I will tell you I am quite happy with myself. I didn’t cheat all week on my nutrition and I did every workout for the First week! But you want to know what I’m most proud about is that I can feel a difference not my weighing myself on the scale but by my non scale victories. One victory is in this picture I can actually cross my legs! I know that sounds probably silly, but trust when you have never been able to before and you can now its a big deal!
I really was nervous about the timed nutrition, I wasn’t sure how eating every 2-3 hours was going to be? But it wasn’t as bad as I thought. In fact it was actually awesome! I wasn’t hungry, I wasn’t tired, I wasn’t even tempted to cheat!
The workouts were certainly at a level I haven’t done before and I can’t believe that I made it through them. This last one on Day 6 was the absolute hardest one. I had to press pause quite a bit and I was huffing and puffing a lot. I could even feel my heart beating! But I didn’t give up I kept doing what I could and if I had to modify I did. I didn’t think of it as a failure I thought of it as a big challenge that I can certainly improve on. I will improve, I will progress, I will be able to get through a workout without pausing. It just takes time. It is one thing I’ve learned is that these things aren’t a quick fix, in fact the consistency is the key. I know I say that all the time, but it’s true!
This is a new adventure and a new chapter and I’m so pumped, I can’t wait for Week 2 , I know it will be tougher and I know there might be times when I might want to give up or quit but I know what my goals are. I’m not going to press that failure button again. I’m not playing repeat again. This is for the long haul.
