This week was the Hybrid recovery week. After 3 weeks of going IN on this workout, it was a great change of pace. I missed the last yoga workout of the week due to my weekend getaway, but that’s not too bad, since I’ve been adding extra yoga throughout the entire process. I also decided that I will take the day off on recovery week. I punish my body for those 3 weeks everyday so I do need a breather. I’m loving this workout more and more every week.
I got back to NYC on Monday night, flying in a storm of plagues (I’ll write on this Thursday), so I missed my Sunday and Monday Workout. So from Today till Thursday I will double up to catch up on what I missed. Sigh.
My updated Food Journal is off the chain. I’ve upgraded it to include calorie information, and put formulas in it to track how many calories used and calories left over for the day. I use the knowledge I gained from Tom Venuto’s Holy Grail book to guide me nutritionally and it’s been incredible. You feel accountable for what you eat and can measure well.
As for my actual weekly nutrition, I’d give myself a C- after giving the teacher extra credit work. Monday – Thursday were fine. It was Fri – sunday where I Blew Meals Fast. I went extra hard during the week and restricted so i could account for these missteps. At the end of the day, it is vacation, and I enjoyed myself and didn’t worry about every meal. I tried to make the smart choices, while not allowing myself to feel guilty every meal. I probably OD’d one day, but that’s better than the 5lb resort #swindle that occurs… hahaha! This week I’m back on my grind so no worries here.
I didn’t get to weigh myself on the usual day/time/conditions, so I was going to skip the weigh-in, but just did it today for empirical purposes. I weighed 191.25 which is .05 up from last week. I kinda figured I wouldn’t be making major gains this week, and would take this reading with a grain of salt either way. technically this would be the first week in 5-6 weeks that I’ve gone in the positive weight wise. Blah. I’m sure I’ll reach milestone 2 by next Monday. I’ll also take my 30+ day pics on Saturday to visually see what the Hybrid progress has accomplished.
1) Stick with the two a days and makeup for missed workouts
2) Eat healthy make few concessions and stick to nutrition plan
3) get more rest this week
Reach those goals!
