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 8

I have completely tweaked the diet. I am eating WAY too much food. I have dropped to a MUCH lower eating plan. I figured my calories for today and they were 2100. I was eating that much on NROL. My RMR is 1527 according to the formula in NROL4W, so that puts my maintainance in the neighborhood of 2200 calories a day on a workout day. So I am only in a 100 calorie deficit right now!!! Normally that would be a fine amount but that is not the point of this program. So I knocked 500 calories off and that is where I am eating for the rest of the week. I just adjusted the meal plans and it still looks like PLENTY of food.

Today I spent much of the morning moving furniture and purging homeschooling supplies so by the time I made it to my workout I was a bit worn out. Bad planning on my part! I got through the lifting portion just fine. I pushed myself really hard on the circuits and then I had nothing left for the intervals. I took a 5 or 10 minute break and tried to go back to them but it just wasn't happening. I did manage to do 20 minutes steady state on the gazelle.
