I’ve had one very long day! Woke up at 6:30, crawled out of bed at 7:00, and COFFEE!!! I had another day of working in Denver so after a quick breakfast, I was off and running. It snowed north of us. That was a big bummer to see. I wish it would snow at my house!
I finished my work around 3:00 in Denver and heading back to the springs was excited to workout. Its LEG DAY!!! I’ve never liked leg day until now. This program is so packed with upper body on every other day that leg day is almost like a rest day only not. I still hurt and I still break a sweat and I still use weights. But at no point during leg day am I in a plank position and for that, my friends, I am happy to see this day arrive.
I arrived home around 4:30 and checked in with Tyler who was also in need of a workout. I grabbed my pre-workout drink and sucked it down, changed clothes and headed for the basement. Eager to get started because I still had my weekly grocery trip to make, I began. This week, the weight was increased and the sets were 2 x 15. YIKES! When that workout ended and for a short while after, my entire lower half shook and felt like jello.
Then shower, store, home and unfortunately a very late dinner.
As for my nutrition, here’s where I’m at. I bought only foods for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. After a couple of days of heavy research, it seems to be one of the more structured forms of eating that truly targets healing the gut. That’s where my head it as right now. The plan that falls in line with my workout program involves way more food than I can or, quite frankly, should be eating. I feel much better over the last three day in just not eating so much. However, my digestion will be a challenge and one I’m truly ready with earnestness, to take on. Leftovers have been consumed and tomorrow starts a new day and hopefully the beginning of a long overdue healing process.
