Back at the gym today. I completely avoided the gym last week in an attempt to better focus on food. I’ll just say, I am going to sleep so good tonight! The workout was tough and my body hurts…. The Metcon was Reps 50-40-30-20-10 Overhead Plate Lunges and Double Unders. I can’t string more than one double under together so I did singles, which were 3x the reps. There was a 20 minute time cap on this workout, I finished in 19:59. I was so proud of myself! It was such a hard workout. 5o lunges to start the workout? Yes. My legs were jello for the next 2 hours. Then, I saw on the whiteboard that my trainer/Advocare adviser did the workout in 9:40. Seriously, is she human? That is so crazy to me. My workout buddy, who is in amazing shape, did it in 14:35.
The Challenge is almost over and I really want to make some good progress in these last few days. In an effort to curb my eating/over-eating, I am moving my meal replacement shake to lunch. This is doing a few things for me.
- It is bringing my eggs back to my morning routine. Yea!
- It is forcing me to eat a mid-morning snack and a mid-afternoon snack because I am hungry.
Since the Challenge is set up for you to eat snacks, and I wasn’t on most days, I am hoping this will be a good change and encourage additional results.
Dinner tonight was super easy. Grilled pork chops, roasted sweet potato slices and steamed green beans. Easy easy easy.
