Three days in a row....

three days in a row of getting up at 4:00AM. It's finally catching up with me.

the good news? I'm down, but not out! I'm tired but not using it as an excuse to eat poorly.

This morning I did a back/shoulder workout, then hit the eliptical for 10 minutes and finished up with a 20 minute HIIT workout. I was tired while doing my HIIT, but didn't feel anywhere close to 'bonking'. I guess I'm eating enough and getting enough sleep to keep my energy levels up for my workouts. That's encoragining.

today is the last of my 'lower calorie/lower carb' days. I'll have to pre make the next two days meals tonight. I've already planned them so it should be reletivly easy. I'm liking this new plan - a LOT.

By the way, in case your curious as to my new plan.. here you go.

Five days a week (Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri, Sat) are lower carb, lower calorie... This translates to 1800 Calories at 45% Protien/30% Carbs/25% Fat.

Two days a week (Thurs,Sun) are higher carb, higher calories. This translates to 2000 Calories at 30/50/20.

I'm working out 5 days a week - structured that is.

30 minutes weights and 30 minutes cardio every day

I have a three day split:

I've not had a solid plan for cardio but I think I'm going to do HIIT Monday Wednesday and Friday then some sort of Moderate Tempo Cardio the other two days.


I've been doing this for three whole days so far.. heh but I can say that I'm happy with my energy, and results so far. The best part has been how good I feel mentally... After working out yesterday I was walking around feeling like a million bucks. I felt tighter all over and more attractive. Granted, working out for three whole days in a row won't change your body that quickly, but I FELT like it had and that was enough to keep me focused on my goals and avoid anything outside my plan.

I'm really feeling positive right now and I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
