Yoga already this morning and bike a little later. I did the 21 Day Fix Lower Body Fix this morning using 5 lbs and it was great! I was literally dripping sweat! When I started, my hands were a little cold and I was wearing layers but I peeled them off before I even began. Love these workouts!!! Even modified, they are not easy.
While doing the Master Cleanse, I mentioned that I was surprised to find that there were times when I was eating more out of habit than hunger. I would grab a little something to nosh whenever I fed the dogs or started making dinner or . . . well, there were several times a day when I realized I reached for something out of habit.
Now I find myself looking at the containers, considering what I want to eat and what I need to eat. Fruit seems to be the one food I don’t reach for as often as I do vegetables and cheese. Now I am enjoying two servings of fruit a day (although I do miss my cheese). With four servings of protein a day, I can easily have protein at every meal and for a snack or just have a protein shake. The hardest part may be the 3 portions of vegetables a day. I like vegetables. I want to eat them more. So on days when I am feeling hungrier, I eat an extra salad. (And when I am not really eager to eat fruit, I add some to my salad. I sneak my fruit in my veggies. LOL!)
When I remember to do so, I measure my ketones and I’m still burning fat each and every day. I love that I am able to double up the exercises and feel the ache in my muscles but not be so sore I can’t move. That’s definitely the best kind of progress! When I do these DVDs again, I will begin immediately using the light weights and, depending on how I feel, I’ll be doubling up by week three again. Who knows, maybe by my third or fourth time through, I’ll be using heavier weights and doubling up!
