Today’s workout: JM 30-Day Shred, Level 1 w/ 3lb weights and modified pushups.
I’m debating on taking one rest day between each level. I plan on spending 10 days at each level, and then maybe taking a rest day, which wouldn’t count towards the overall 30 (so it will take me 32 days to finish). It’s not that I don’t think I could make the 30 days non-stop, but doesn’t the body need time to recover? Even P90X has a rest day or lighter day built in weekly.
Just something I’m thinking about.
Yesterday’s food: Points allowed: 22; Points used 29; Activity Points earned: 4; Deficit taken from weeklies: 3; Weeklies left: 22.5
In the last 3 days, I’ve developed a mantra: “Let that be enough” in regards to my meals. I usually feel “full” but not stuffed, and I have to remind myself that full is enough; I don’t need to be stuffed. However, yesterday, this almost backfired. I had a salad for lunch, but I was still hungry after eating that. I keep saying “Let that be enough” and “It’s just in your head”. Then when I got home, I wanted to tear apart the refrigerator and eat everything in sight. It didn’t help that the husband stayed late at work. If he had been there when I got home like usual, we would have just eaten dinner; instead, I needed/wanted a snack…and then ate my portion of the guacamole I was making to go with the tacos for dinner before he arrived. Not that this was his fault at all; I am still relearning to listen – and trust – to the hunger monitor inside of me. Lesson learned: don’t get obsessed – don’t let a good idea be taken to the point of sabotage. Luckily, I sort of kept myself in control – 3 weekly points used = not bad.
