Wow is this a good workout!
Breakfast this morning was a protein shake followed by protein bar. Lunch was a turkey and chicken salad followed by another protein bar. I then worked out, had an post-workout Protein shake and had Turkey and a cup of brown rice or dinner with an apple for dessert. Decent nutrition day!
Interval X is a pure ass kicker! I am still tired. My average heart rate was 143 and I actually got up to the low 180's a couple of times. I probably sweat two buckets also! The bad news is that I bonked on the 2nd to last exercise. Literally I could barely move ... then I saw the next exercise was, "running in place" and I knew I only had one more to go and I dug down and did it. This told me that the 60%protein/20% Carb diet is over. The last couple of days my energy level has been very low. At first I thought it may have been because I wasn't getting a ton of sleep but after today I am positive it is the lack of carbs in the diet. So, unless I want my workouts to be for shit I need to add in the carbs. All the advice from the experts at Beachbodies tells you to listen to your body and right now my body is screaming for carbs. I had brown rice tonight for dinner and immediately felt better. So from here on out whole wheat bread, bagels and tortilla shells are back and I am excited.
I plan on doing Total Body Plus tomorrow morning!
