Day 5: My legs are gonna be sore!

Today was the first day I got to try out the Legs and Back workout. It was actually a lot of fun, and the time really flew by. I truly am starting to enjoy the workouts instead of thinking of them as being so much of a challenge. I think I'm starting to realize how much of an impact these workouts will have on my physical appearance, and that's definitely some strong motivation right there.

I'm getting better at the Ab Ripper X workout, even after only doing it twice before today. The first time I did it, I could only get through the first few exercises before I had to either take a break or not do as many reps as the rest of the crew did. Today, though, I got through about 80% of the whole workout, so I was pretty pumped about that.

I followed my nutrition guide today... well, at least for the most part. I had my protein shake for breakfast, fish and broccoli for lunch, and sushi (california roll) and seaweed salad for dinner. The sushi and seaweed salad aren't on the guide, but it's veggies and shellfish, and that's on there. I figured it's an even trade. :)

I can really tell a difference since I've been gettig 8+ hours of sleep. I'm way more energized and feel more in control of my body. I'm also more focused, but that could be from the ActiVit metabolism supplements that I started taking on Wednesday. Those supplements have B12 in them, which obviously speeds up your metabolism, but it also helps your mind to stay focused and not drift away to different tangents. Whatever it is, I'm liking how I feel.

Here's my heart rate monitor info for the day:

Total Time: 1.20.30
Calories Burned: 570.58
Fat: 60%
Maximum BPM: 170
Average BPM: 137

I didn't realize how effective this workout truly was until I saw how many calories I burned. Suh-weet!

'Til next time...
