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 6

I am nearing the end of Week 1. I am really wondering if I am eating too much food. Other people are experiencing so much hunger and I have almost had none. I know I am eating for a higher meal plan than most but I am still eating from a plan for someone 30lbs lighter then I am. I have even cut back on many of the evening snacks. Next week I am moving down one more plan. There really isn't much difference between the two though. I have had no craving for carbs and my carb headaches seem to have passed. I am still having some fatigue but I really think that is more because I am working so hard and not because of the food.

I will take my measurements and weight tomorrow because I don't want tomorrow's fast to skew the number on the scale on Monday morning. So far I am down three pounds. I will be really happy if I am down one more pound tomorrow. I really have no idea what to expect from the tape measure though. I am hoping to be able to get into all of my 16s at the end of this but that might be pushing it a bit!

The exercise portion is really awesome. The circuits are really fun and move very quickly so it is hard to focus on how much a particular exercise SUCKS (jackknife)!!

Working out 6 days a week is challenging for me though. I have always built in "make-up" time in case things get crazy and I can't fit in my workout. DS's meds were recently changed so he can make things hard at times. There is nothing like a 7 year old having the mood swings of a pregnant women with PMS to throw off your day!! Now, there is no make up time so I HAVE to get it done when it is supposed to be done.

I promised myself I would follow the program exactly as it was written and I am for the most part. However, there are some things that I just can not do. I had to either skip them or substitute something else for them. I figured substituting a related exercise was a better option. I had to substitute pullovers for the chin-ups/lat pulldown. I simply can not do chin-ups, assisted or not; I weigh too much. And I don't have access to a lat pulldown. Pullover was the closest exercise I could find. I also can not do push ups from the ball. This week I skipped that part and just did jackknives but next week I am going to add them into the circuit as a separate exercise. I am hoping by the third week I will be able to do them as written.

Today I got to a late start, so my food timing is a bit off.
