Day 4

Sunday, January 08, 2012

Just an update: Day 4 of eating clean, and I mean, really, really clean. And training hard with circuit training: lifting combined with cardio, jump rope and rounds on the bag. I just feel amazing! I have never had so much energy, or energy to spare. I haven't slipped up once. My only cheat is a flavored water, o calories but contains higher sugar than anything else I am eating. I enjoy taking supplements and becoming more educated on nutrition- getting it down to a science of what to eat at certain times of day, pre/post workout for optimum absorption and balance to my intake. Its crazy! I am in what is called a cutting stage and I am eager to begin the next stage of workouts when I can begin higher impact cardio BUT I still have until Thursday(this is to avoid injury)! I am down 4 lbs since last Thursday(jan.5th) and when I awoke this morning I could visually tell there has been muscular progress, not just weight loss. I've promised myself to only post progress pics once a week, I am so excited for Thursday, the 12th! I am proving how badly I want this, I am putting myself and my goals out there, if I fail, I fail pretty big and that's just more incentive to move forward, kick as, and make this happen!

**Get moving, give up 'I can't' and don't give in, set a goal and run it down! Make your dreams a reality, you CAN and WILL do this! **

    I never get tired of saying what an inspiration you are! I start my workout tomorrow morning and I'm excited...and scared I'll give into some excuse not to do it. You help give me that little push I need to do the right thing!

    I am so proud of you, keep it up!

    You are a DYNAMO! I can't wait to see your pictures on the 12th. You sure do inspire me to do more and to know I am capable of more. What a little mad-diet scientist you are with your clean eating, supplements and knowing what to eat and when to eat it optimum absorption/balance talk! I'm mighty impressed with you, Siena. You've got this!

    Good for you! I am on the same bus, eating clean (although last night was date night and I did have one cocktail), exercising, and feeling the energy buzz.

    Keep up the good work, I will be looking for those photos on Thursday!
