Before I get into today's workout, I'll chat a bit about how I felt today. So I woke up, and wow, I was really energized! I think it was partly physical from the workout yesterday but also mental because I felt like I had accomplished something really tough! I was NEVER an athlete, so doing things like this as an adult is awesome. In fact, I've decided I'm going to be way fitter at 30 than I ever was at 20! So anyway, I was definitely sore but good sore today. My lats are feeling it, my chest is feeling it... so I know I did some good work. I think I might have been losing form a little bit in the pushups because my neck is a little tired today, so I'm going to have to be conscious of that next time.
I wasn't good about food yesterday, but today I'm right on track. I'm not following the exact meal plan as written. I'm doing the food groups thing where I eat 7 proteins, 4 veggies, etc. It's definitely a lot of food but I'll need it! Let's just say plyo was TOUGH today! There were a few times I decided I needed another 30 seconds to rest so I hit pause and walked around while my heart rate came down a bit. Again, Thank God I have a HRM! It's my saving grace in this workout. Today it told me I burned 1,085 calories! Are you freaking kidding me? That's insane! My legs were burning a ton during some of those moves. Some of them I didn't do double time like the people on the video but I'm sure by day 90 I'll be working it like them.
Phew. That was tough! I'm glad I did it though! Now I have to pull myself together so I can do a take home final exam. Three straight hours of writing... woo. Isn't that fun? Only one more week till a little vacation though, so I'm going to work hard for the next few days!
Back tomorrow when I bring it once again for the next workout!
