With week 1 being so much of an adjustment week with new workouts and new moves, week 2 seemed to be much smoother and I was far less sore! My body was getting accustomed to the workouts with weights and seemed to adjust better in week 2!
I'm enjoying the workouts and really like adding the weights to it...it brings the level of fitness up a notch and I feel it really is working on areas that I haven't worked on in a while! So, I'm really enjoying using the weights!
I think I'm still adjusting some to the style of this workout. I had just completed the 60 days of Insanity Max 30 and these are very different workouts...both are extreme workouts, but in my opinion, very
different. So I'm adjusting to the difference in the 2 workouts! Neither on is "better" or "worse" than the other...just different!
So I told you last week I was playing around with my nutrition for last week. I still think I 'm trying to find the perfect fit for my nutrition and how I can be the most successful. I think I'm even going to adjust my meal plan a bit this week as well. Honestly I'm trying to really focus on when I have the biggest cravings, what it is that I'm craving and how to fuel my body at that time with nutritional foods vs reaching for the tortilla chips or the toast and peanut butter.
One other thing...I think I shared with you that peanut butter is my downfall...like SERIOUS downfall!! So...one thing I did last week was GIVE THAT UP! Now, is that necessary in order to follow the Extreme nutrition plan? NO...but for me, that was a crutch! I'd crave it and reach for it so therefore, I needed to get rid of it! For whatever reason, my body just craved a spoonful of it...but now that I have it out of the house, I'm fine. (And...no, I didn't throw away a full jar of it...we ran out anyways and I am just not going to buy more!). I have decided to do almond butter instead. I don't "crave" that like I did PB, so I am totally fine to just have a teaspoon like the nutrition guide calls for!
I'm also going to be skiing at the end of the week, so I am trying to make it as simple as possible so that I can eat what I need to when I can while I'm skiing. Sometimes there's not much in the option department b/c I can't really carry all my food with me. We bring our lunch, so that won't be a problem. But, I may have to do a Lara Bar instead of some of my other snack options.
Also, what I did for this week was a major prep day. On Sunday I was inspired by another coach who did a mass amount of prepping in ONE HOUR!!! I was not that efficient but I hope to be. I'm going to be doing another post entirely about prepping my meals for the week...stay tuned!!
Here's my meal plan for the week. Like I said, it's pretty simple.
