Metamorphosis, Days 3-5

Saturday, April 26, 2014

Things have been going pretty well for the past few days. I haven't been following everything to a T, but I wake up every morning feeling energized and seeing improvements. It's not easy but I'm working at it!

Diet Plan:
I followed the diet plan for all of Day 3 (plus my typical additions to get the right amount of calories) and most of Day 4. However, last night (Friday night) my husband and I decided to get Mexican food for dinner. We can be pretty big enablers for each other when it comes to indulging, so we have a once a month rule about our favorite Mexican restaurant. Experience has taught me that if I'm going to make this a lifestyle change, it can't be overly restrictive otherwise it won't stick! So I had a delicious dinner and thoroughly enjoyed it. Today, Day 5, I woke up back to the weight I was on Day 2. But that's okay by me. I know that I am making progress. So far I have been back on track with the diet plan today, but I do have a party to go to tonight. I don't think I will be eating anything off-plan but I will most definitely be drinking. I am going to try my best to stick with just one beer for the evening.

I have only done the cardio portion one day this week (Day 2). My calves were so sore the next few days! I went running on the days that I didn't do the cardio portion, but I would like to try the cardio bit again soon because I know my muscles will get used to the routine. Today I did an 8 mile run through the hills and it was tough! I also started writing down how many reps I can do for each of the leg exercises so I can make sure to hold myself accountable during the video.

    Since running is your priority, you might want to try doing an easier 10 minute dance segment like Tracy's 30 Day Method Book Cardio to get your muscles used to her style, before doing the Meta Cardio.
