Sooo...I'll have to say week 1 was both good and bad. It was bad because I realized just how out of shape I am. However I did get all of the workouts in even if I had to stop and take a break, modify the exercise, or just do the best I could. There are some exercises that not matter how many times I do them I am just not coordinated enough to do them. I also have a weird tailbone (sorry if TMI) so Pilates day was a bit difficult and I didn't have enough sense to grab a towel or something to add extra cushioning for my bottom. There were more days than not that I dreaded going in my workout room and getting to work. I either left tired, sore, or just flat out lazy. However, what I realized each time I felt this way about halfway through the workout itself my headache would be gone, I wouldn't feel as sore, and would just be glad I'd managed to get up off my butt and do the 30 minutes of exercise.
As far as my eating...I did ok most days. I did not use the containers to portion out my food or always make the best choices. I finished off a bag of caramel rice cakes one night around 11 PM. Then there was the weekend and Friday and Saturday were total disasters. Oz and I made a Taco Bell run before the football game and ordered pizza on Saturday. I hadn't had pizza forever! I was only able to eat 2-3 slices of pizza and about half a bottle of pop. The pizza had a thick crust and I just wasn't able to eat that much st once since I'd been eating less throughout the week. Plus I know better than to drink pop anymore, like tea, I want it and always regret the decision.
I hope the workouts this week will become slightly easier and if not I'll do my best to continue to get back on track. I'm also thinking I may have to buckle down and use the containers for portion control. I do believe that is the key to the 21 Day Fix is to get rid of all the processed foods from your diet. I've done it before and I know it makes a huge difference but its sooo hard some days to fight the urge to hit the DQ drive thru for a blizzard.
