Not going to lie… today was rough! I am doing the Cardio track for P90, and I actually think the initial workout is less than the older Power 90 version was. I am guessing that is because its broken up in to 3 difficulty levels compared to the older on that had 2 so they had to carry the difficulty a bit more.
I woke up early (5:45am) and got my workout in so it wouldn’t affect my usual routine with the kids, as I said it was a little lighter than I thought but still had me sweating so I felt good about it. Im writing this about 9pm and I can definitely feel some of the soreness now.
The biggest change is DIET! At my weight according to what I read if I wanted to maintain my weight it would be 2500 calories a day with my sitting on my butt job. I am doing the “6-Day Shred” that comes with P90 to “kickstart” your diet change. The first day of the shred limits your intake to 1200 calories, and no processed foods or soda/sugar. I am being very strict with the diet, and I am getting minor headaches (from no sugar I am thinking) but I know from the past that these will pass in a day or so as my body resets.
The biggest challenge is the social triggers that I never think of… for instance one of the ladies at work always brings some candy to share at the weekly meeting… or at Xander’s TKD workout one of the other dads always shares a bag of skittles, having to turn down these treats I usually go after was difficult, but I am glad I did. No cheating as I want to be fully committed to the change.
Hopefully I can keep my resolve!
I am using the fitbit app to track my food/water intake, for the day I am at 1,089 calories and 109.4 ounces of water! I had to charge the fitbit today, but Ill have step counts moving forward!
Thanks for following along, see you tomorrow
