Week 3 is when I start to go downhill, fast. I ‘ve lost a little weight, the clothes are fitting better and I decide I’m really working out hard and can loosen up a little on the diet. But not this time!!! I will push past this to the coveted 21 day mark. 21 days is how long it takes to solidify a new routine so…
Halloween is in a few weeks and I have a work party to attend. I have this killer costume I bought 2 years ago that hasn’t really fit (midriff baring). If I stay focused I think I may be able to pull off that costume this year. I have just under 4 weeks until the party.
Monday September 30
TT 2.0 Intermediate A. I think this is the toughest of the Intermediate workouts, lots of glute and hamstring work that makes me go “ouch”!!
1:30 Chicken Veggie Soup
4:00 Justin almond butter and an apple
7:00 Spaghetti sauce over shaved zucchini and 1/2 cup angel hair. Trying to avoid wheat products during the week but my son wasn’t feeling well and got the left over soup. I added the zucchini to veggie it up and lessen the pasta.
Sometime later – I spoonful of Skippy
Somewhere between 56 and 64, lost count
Tuesday October 1st
Got a bit of a bonus today. I placed an order last week for Biotrust’s Leptiburn and Protein Cookies. I received both of those PLUS 2 tubs of protein (a $100+ mistake from Biotrust). I called them to let them know and ask if they wanted to send me a return label so I could send it back but they told me to keep it (HAPPY DANCE!!!) Of course they probably couldn’t re-sell it but still. I already had 2 tubs so this will take me through the end of the year with protein and through the Biotrust contest allowing me to buy more Leptiburn WOO HOO. And from a consumer standpoint I’m amazed they let me keep the product and didn’t try and “sell ” it to me. I was only charged for what I ordered. They seem to be a very reputable company.
Workout: Off day following the TT protocol
I got my Leptiburn today and took the first does at 2:00pm. I’m jittery and caffeinated.
3:15 Big A$$ Salad with tuna, tomatoes, avocado, 1 egg, broccoli and EVOO with balsamic
7:15 Spaghetti sauce over 1/2 cup angel hair and 1 cup shaved zuchhini
Calories approx 1026
Wednesday October 2nd
And today is where I set myself up for failure. I didn’t plan therefore I really didn’t eat. A fast day is ok if my calories are good the rest of the week but they weren’t and I fasted for about 23 hours. This = BAD!
Workout: TT2.0 Intermediate B
6:00 2 oz turkey with 1/4 avocado (shoved into my mouth with both hands while shaking like a leaf)
7:00 PM Bowl and a half of Taco soup, 1 oz cheese and 1 tbsp sour cream with 3 tortilla chips
Calories approx 554
Thursday October 3rd
Total meltdown today. I couldn’t sleep at all (low calories anyone?) I woke up at 3:15am and that was it. I should have gotten up and had a banana or something. I decided to add about 200 extra calories to my meals today. I need to make a deliberate attempt to eat more than I have been. It’s possible that the intermittant fasting is screwing with my hormones so I need to play with it. I did NOT eat the ice cream that I so desperately wanted last night
On a positive note I’m down to 159 and lost 14″ so…
12:30 Bowl of Taco soup
2:00 2 oz Boarshead turkey with 1/2 avocado
4:30 Apple and PB
7:00 Bag a$$ taco salad with lettuce, taco beef using our grass fed beef, 1 oz cheese, 2 tbsp sour cream, salsa
Calories approx 1200
Friday October 4th
Took two benedryl last night and finally slept well but I woke up with little energy and starving. I attempted a workout but threw in the towel after 15 minutes. I just didn’t have it in me. I did prepare well for my meals today so that’s a plus 😉 I’ll figure out this whole energy expenditure vs calorie requirement thing yet.
Workout: 15 mins of TT 2.0 Intermediate C
12:50 leftover taco soup
