Update on Honest is Best Policy 4 Week Goal
Sunday, October 07, 2012
Well, I can give myself a pat on the back, if anything I stayed focused on meeting my goal. I did not average the 5 days a week but I did do 4 days a week. I wasn't able to incorporate a 2nd day of ST with my trainer but I did add the new roll machine 2x a week which I definitely feel in my core and back. There were days that I was bored or dreaded going but I would psyche myself up by saying "Once I go I will feel better" or if I was short on time and a part of me would say skip it, I would say "some time in the gym doing cardio is better than no time" then I would do a HIT and boy did I sweat and boy did I feel it.
It felt good but at the same time was motivator to make sure I get there the next session timely so I could have a longer workout.
One thing I did discover is this, rest is important, the optimal amount of sleep for me is between 6-8 with it being closer to 6.5hours
otherwise I am absolutely tired the next day in the gym.
I also discovered it is important to have a filling dinner the night before otherwise I am hungry before the gym when typically I do not eat before I go because when I do, I feel sluggish.
I did loose one pound and I can see definition in my abs and my feeling of bloated is going away.
Moving into this month, I want to reach for that goal of 5 days a week.
1. 5 days of Cardio
2. 2 days of ST (personal trainer /PT & own program)
3. 193 oz of water per day (wt in ounces)
4. Dedicated food diet ( I need to get better control)
