Completed the Plyometrics week 2 and was able to stick with it for almost all of the DVD. Moved to the basement so that my jumping around like a dipshit on a pogo stick would not cause things to fall off the shelves upstairs. Downstairs has a little less room and so I smashed a finger on the ceiling doing jump squats. So I had about a 1 minute break so I could cuss like a tourettes patient on crack. Once that was out of the way things went pretty smoothly.
I had to change my breakfast habits a bit to keep the fat down and the protein up. I now have a bowl of cereal with milk and juice, along with a whey protein shake. That way I start out the day at about a 50% carbs, 40% protein, and 10% fat mix. I then work in more protein throughout the day to try to get to the 50/30/20 split. (usually more like 45/35/15) but as long as I am keeping the fat below 20 I am OK with the higher carbs lower protein. Over the first 9 days of the program I have been averaging 2048 Total calories per day and 1500 Net calories per day.
My energy has been good and I am sleeping much better. Staying away from any type of soft drinks and snacks. With it being Christmas time, there is plenty of Chex mix rolling around the house, but I simply end up eating the almonds that the kids don’t want. Shoulders and Arms today, my favorite of the routines so far, so I am looking forward to it.
