Jenny Lynn: Who wouldn't want to look like this fabulous figure competitor?

When Jonathan Acosta told me I’d only work out three days a week, for the first three weeks, and take the other four as recovery days, I thought I’d probably sneak in some biking at home or a little treadmill time at the gym on my off days.  As it turns out, I need four recovery days.  Yesterday was my first recovery day and I needed every minute of it!

My alarm went off at 5am.  I reached over to shut it off and was suddenly aware of every muscle in my body.  I fell back asleep until 6.

I picked up my phone to start checking email, amazed at how much of a workout I’d had in only half an hour on Monday.

I woke up an hour later with the phone where I dropped it on my bed.

I tried to focus on my email once again.  I woke up at 8am.

What I ate on Tuesday:

Breakfast: I was as hungry as a bear!  Shake (2 scoops vanilla whey, 1/2 cup oats cooked & cooled, sugar free maple syrup) DELICIOUS!  It needed cinnamon though.

Elevenses: (Still hungry) 1 chicken breast, 1 cup broccoli, 2 low carb tortillas (sm), pico de gallo

Afternoon Tea: 25 almonds, 1 packet One-a-Day Energy in 1/2 liter water

Dinner: 1/2 cup baby carrots, 1 EAS Advantedge Ready-to-Drink

Supper: Designer Whey Protein Blitz

I’m not quite up to all the Hobbit meals but I’m getting there.  I need to work on my meal timing more so they’re less erratic and closer to every three hours.

I also need to get more sleep at night.

But this is about progress, not perfection…yet.
