I finally am back in my groove and it feels oh so good. I got the living room all cleared out and started back on Combat yesterday. As I mentioned in my post the other day, I decided to just start over based on where I was in the program and the long break. I knew I felt fluffy in the middle from not working out and eating different...but I KNEW I lost fitness when I was struggling to keep up with Combat 30. I remember the first time I did it, it was hard, but it wasn't impossible. Yesterday I felt like it was the hardest workout ever. I got through it, but I was struggling. Today with HIIT: Power I had to drop weights a lot. I was at 12/15 lbs...today was 12/9 lbs. Definitely lost some fitness. But that's ok...because it's temporary. What's funny is that my clothes do not fit any different. This is just a feeling that I have now from not working out. Change is happening...
My plan right now is:
1) Les Mills Combat Ultimate Warrior Schedule - 60 days of fighter fit baby!
2) Add in 2-3 days a week of weights. Preferably Les Mills Pump or heavier lifting at the gym here at the apartment complex.
3) Eat CLEAN.
Yes number 3 is a biggie. By packing up a kitchen and moving it over the last few weeks I haven't been eating my ideal diet at all. I've been eating microwave food (mostly Amy's organic meals) and a random restaurant menu. I've tried hard to eat right...just a few blatant slips here and there. But now that the kitchen is back in action, I'm going hard core again. As I type this, I have brown rice in the rice cooker, the Ultimate Reset fish recipe marinating in the fridge (I know...I'm cooking fish!) and am going to stir fry some veggies to make a delish lunch. I miss eating my own food! The buzzer just let me know it's time to put the fish in the oven so I'll catch you later :)
