The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

Warp Speed Day 2

My schedule got thrown off a little bit by an impromptu homeschool park day, so my workout won't happen until this afternoon. My weight was down to 229.6 this morning from 230.2 yesterday. I know it is mostly water weight at this point but I can only lose so much water! LOL

I haven't put a ton of thought into what I am going to do diet wise after WSFL is done. I know I want to continue with a reduced carb diet but not as extreme as what I am currently doing. But other than that I don't know! Hopefully I will develop some better "low carb" habits while following this plan that will carry over.

Today's Food:

9:30 – Breakfast - I just could not bring myself to experiment with another weird breakfast. I don't think this deviated to far from the exchanges that were intended.

1 ½ cup Lite Soy Milk

1 ½ Scoop PP

½ blueberries

18 Almonds

11:30 – Lunch - This is a crazy amount of chicken to eat in one sitting!

7.5 oz chicken breast

2 cup spinach

½ cup chopped tomato

24 almonds

2:30 – Snack - I am going to have to fight my children for these!

2 hard boiled eggs

3 hard boiled egg white filled with 3 Tbsp hummus

4:00 – Workout

1 cups juice

3 Tbsp Liquid Protein

7:30 – Dinner - I really don't want to have chicken again for dinner!

4.5 oz chicken breast

3 cups lettuce

½ cup diced onion

6 Tbsp avocado

1 whole egg

9:00 – Snack - I think this is less protein than was allotted for this snack but I am not hurting on protein so I think I will be okay!

1 cup plain soy milk mixed with 1 cup black chai

1 whole eggs with a tablespoon of hummus

It is 9:30 and I am just starting to get a headache and fatigue so I am doing much better than yesterday with the low carb transition. I have not been hungry AT ALL. In fact I am having difficulty eating everything I am supposed to. Today I cut 2 servings of protein and 1 serving of fat because I just couldn't do it all. I am also eating off of the plan for a person 30 lbs lighter than I am since I have so much weight to lose. (I am doing this on the recommendation of the authors.)

I have picked up quite a soda habit though. I am really going to try to cut back on the soda tomorrow. I never drink more than 1 soda a day and I am embarrassed to admit how many I have had today!! Tomorrow I am going to try to keep the kettle on and drink tea when I need the caffeine fix!

Today's workout was cardio, an evil mix of interval and steady state. I HATE cardio (the steady state stuff at least) with a passion. I just keep telling myself it is 11 more sessions, 11 more sessions.

I am not the tiniest bit sore from yesterday's workout so I think I was right that I need to increase the weights.

11 more sessions! (Did I mention I hate cardio?!)
