Star Date September 23, 2014
Yesterday went really well. Surprisingly well in fact. I only ate two Hershey’s nuggets as opposed to my usual 6 or 7!! Chocolate Shakeology, a gallon and a half of water, Strawberry Greek non-fat yogurt (kudos to those who can eat yogurt without anything in it), asparagus, turkey burger plain (no bun, lettuce, nothing). I wasn’t as hungry as I thought I would be. And when my stomach did start to express it’s displeasure about the lack of food I had eaten, I either got some more water or chewing gum.
I got a day behind in my workout schedule last week and wanted to get back on track, so after work (much to the dismay of my puppy since I was cutting into his after-dinner recess) I busted through Body Beast Legs and added 21 Day fix 10 minute Abs to the mix for fun. I feel like I could to go up on my weights when working out my legs, the 8 lbs are starting to feel light. Never thought I would say that. Thankfully the ab workout was only 10 minutes because I don’t think I could have lasted a single second longer. My abs felt like they were being smothered in molten lava and hot coals. Sounds fun doesn’t it? Not really, but what do they say, “no pain, no gain” right?
Of course, immediately after my workout, I checked to see if my 6-pack had started to creep through its protective fluffy coating… No such luck (a girl can dream can’t she?). I just reminded myself that it was only the first day, I have 12 more days days left, and I did work out for 2 hours in a 14 hour period. So forward progress is better than no progress at all.
And after all that working out, I slept like a baby. A cool Fall night didn’t hurt either.
Thinking about trying a DIY body wrap this weekend to see if that can speed up the process. Will let you know how that goes..
Who said beauty wasn’t painful.
