Thoughts: Those rest days...man, got to love em. Although I'm pretty sure that they lull you into a false sense of security. Here I was thinking...man I'm gonna kill this workout...and wow. I think it killed me. The shoulder tap plank...ah...amazing. I love exercises where I can feel my muscles dying. Its weird but its also this feeling of "...hell yeah! I'm awesome!" Then at the end of the workout its followed by me on the floor trying not to die. :) Food: Food is the hardest hardest hardest part for me. The good thing is I have noticed a steady increase in the amount of veggies I'm taking in. And if I'm honest with myself I feel so much better when all I have for dinner is some pork tenderloin and a heaping serving of brussel sprouts. Ah...they are to die for. Cut them in half, pour in a little olive oil, salt and pepper, and balsamic vinegar into a pan and saute them for around 10 minutes. Delicious. So I'm working on food...slowly but surely. Progress: Do you ever just get so down on yourself about lack of progress? I look at myself in the mirror and I'm pretty sure nothing happened. It sucks. Its hard to accept that its only been two weeks and you can't expect crazy change that quickly. So I'm here with you...trying to be realistic.
