Last night I had trouble going to sleep. It was probably close to 1:00 a.m. when I finally did go to sleep. I was quite surprised to see it was almost 9:00 when I woke up. I got me a glass of water and ate a half of banana. I got my workout clothes on and my fan going and began the plyometrics. I would say that on a scale of 1-10, I did a 5. I was able to do some of the exercises, but some of that jumping just hurts my foot, I feel like my whole "trunk" is still moving up while I am on my way down. I did try to do them all. I did have to pause the DVD player several times. I even went and made a bed one time, and then another time put my laundry in the dryer. So I was still moving. Toward the end, I did not do the second go round. The part that is right before the cooldown. I still did probably 53 minutes of workout.. just took me about an hour because of the pauses. I am thinking that the plyometrics may be the hardest workout, but then I have not done the core workout but once when I was just practicing before I really started the program. And tonight I did the Ab ripper X. I won't say that I did it well. Those backward bicycles and climbing the legs are hard. I just did what Tony says, " Do your best and forget the rest." Tomorrow will be a big challenge... my first day to try to do the workout before work. I just have to MAKE myself get up in the morning.
Here is my food intake:
Breakfast- the 1/2 banana
After workout- a drink from HEB with carbs and protein that I will call my recovery drink,
5 egg white omelet with spinach, onion, Laughing Cow cheese, and bell pepper
Snack-lots of pistachios
Lunch- Dr. Pepper from Sam's .....oops
Snack- chicken drumstick
Dinner- deer sausage with wild rice and steamed vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, edamame, and carrots
Snack- other 1/2 of banana
Okay, I have to show you before I end this the cutest smile in the entire world. Now I mean it... and it is not because this is my granddaughter...
