I made it through week 1 of the training plan that Mr. Cyclist gave me. Phew! I did everything as he told me. This week got a little crazier with work so, I couldn’t do the yoga that I was supposed to do.
Well… re-phrase that: I made an excuse to get out of the yoga that I was supposed to do. But, hey, I worked a 9+ hour day. I empathize with those who work multiple jobs, and are running around with even less time than I had.
Even when you think you are too busy to exercise or do something, there is always someone out there with less time than you that is fitting in their exercise. No excuses.
Anyway, I feel like I am sleeping better and have less anxiety when I have more structured and more intense exercise. Or maybe that is just like a placebo effect. An added bonus is that it is toning me up more.
As far as nutrition goes…
My goal is to try to eat less junk carbohydrates like processed sugar, chips, crackers, and more high quality carbohydrates like cooked grains (oats, brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat pasta, etc.).
On to this next week!
