One week down, nine to go! Here are my thoughts on the first week -
Loving them! I’m genuinely excited to go to class each day. I like kickboxing the most. I’ve taken kickboxing at my regular gym, but it’s totally non-contact, so it’s not nearly as intense or as much fun. Wearing gloves and hitting/kicking the bags is so much better. The cool thing about the workouts is that even though we have men and women of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness levels, everyone gets a great workout. It’s all about what you put into it. I’m definitely trying to give my all to each and every workout. They are only 45 minutes long, so every minute counts.
Following the nutrition plan hasn’t been too difficult. I didn’t follow it perfectly, but overall I think I did pretty darn well for my first week. During the workday it’s been super easy for me to follow. It’s night that gets me. I’m so used to snacking the night away (usually mindlessly eating cereal in front of the TV). I’m thinking it will get easier, though as I get used to eating this way. I’m actually having fun coming up with lots of mini meal ideas. Oh, and I don’t know why I thought that drinking the 80oz of water every day would be challenging. It’s not! I just have to be conscious of it throughout the day. I think it’s also been helping me not get as hungry. Here are some of my recent mini meals and the estimated nutritional stats -
Onto Week 2!
