Friday 11 am and i'm done with the first week, BU YEAH!
(live lean says its day 5 today, but nu huh, day 7 people!)
Result: i am feeling high on endorphins. and for the last two days i havent wanted to strangle someone for waking up at 5:20am (i am reaching auto pilot mode)
Its been quite interesting to see how my mind and my body has been changing its reaction/attitude toward the 2X a day workouts.
what we've gone thru: weekdays intense circuit training where you really find out what pushing yourself really means. wednesdays: regrouping and setting committments for the week:
1) planning meals ahead of time 2) 2 wkouts X day
(and i feel a bit guilty about making the entire class cross off no alcohol because i couldn't commit, but i think already not drinking 5 days has been tough, and labor day is coming up!)
I still have pretty bad pulsating headaches, but i guess thats detox mode
bittersweet realization: My daily routine nowadays doesn't reflect my regular indulging days pre Live Lean... no more biweekly happy hours or foody encounters, no more staying up w/ a bottle of wine to watch entourage or top chef (no time for TV at all), no energy for socializing in general.... and WORK, well thats been tough to stay focused too. Luckily, this month i started a new work schedule of 3/4 partime.... so its working out somehow.
(i also know restaurant week is right around the corner.... what to do?)
I am so grateful for everyone whose been supportive: of course the Live Lean Coaches, Amy, Brooke, my team... but outside of that: FRANCES fof cheering me on and setting up 2nd workouts with me (i look fwd to our biking trip!), MAMITA gracias por ayudarme con comer mas saludable y ayudarme a preparar todo, PAPA gracias por la motivacion y estar despierto a esas horas conmigo, BAWA, SETH, EMILY, MARIO, BRETT, CHARO, NICK, TERESA: thanks for the cheers. having you beside me along this heavy journey has been a fuel in itself!
PS: i scheduled a colonics session. iiiiij!
