Day 3 of the Lean Out Program
Yesterday it seemed I was constantly telling myself to stick with it. Today I found myself thinking about drinking coffee and eating scones but not because I was craving them but more so because it just sounded good. Instead of kicking myself for being on this program I found myself asking why I wanted those things. Why they sounded good at the time. Was it because it was early in the morning and the thought of holding a warm cup of coffee in my hands seemed appealing? I didn’t really come up with an answer but I was proud that I was questioning why… We get ourselves into habits and never really ask ourselves why we do, eat, or think what we do, eat, or think.
I never ended up working out yesterday. I forgot to mention I took a two hour nap yesterday… I admit that I have been feeling a little tired but I think it’s just my body trying to convince me to drink caffeine. Today I did get a chance to workout. I had one of the trainers here write out a couple workouts for me so that I know they would be tough… and sure enough it was. I did a full body focused on lower pull type exercises and upper push type exercises. The last 10 minutes was a little metabolic conditioning which consisted of kettlebell swings, kettlebell snatches, and burpees for 30 seconds on, 10 seconds off. If you have no idea what any of those things are just know that it was challenging. I made it through the whole workout just fine, I was starving afterwards though and now find myself thinking about carbs.
I did get a chance to weight myself yesterday. You guys want to know the results? Gulp… I’m about to share my weight on the internet… ok ok…
Body Fat Percentage: 19%
Lean Muscle Mass: 115lbs
So I’m hoping to maintain the lean mass, drop the body fat % and keep my weight about the same. We’ll see how it goes. All in all… I feel really well and am feeling lighter. I feel like I am thinking clearer as well. I have a big break between clients so I think I’m going to take a power nap. I’m half way through the program and feeling good!!! Don’t worry… I’m not going to eat any carbs…
Question for you: What beliefs around food do you have? Like for me it was my belief that I needed to eat meat to be healthy. Do you have a belief or two just because someone told you so…?
