Week 1: Day 3: Wednesday, June 6th, 2012
Today was surpisingly hard and at the most more difficult than I thought. It had alot of assistance exercises, which I have not performed in a long time, and def notices some imbalances in some portions of my body. However, I really do like performing single joint movements, and concentrated movements on particuliar areas of the body, as they will help with strengthening and also fixing some imbalances in my body. Overall it was a good day training, and as of right now, I am dealing with a few little injuries, but I can get past them, and just keep working through them. Still going hard, and my eyes is on the prize.
The one big thing I am enjoying, that I am eating a whole lot more, which in past terms, was very hard for me to do. I am eating three meals a day, and starting the day off right, with a big breakfast, which I have found is huge for me, because it starts the day off right, and gives me the fuel I need for my body.
I have upped my carb intake a huge amount, so I can equal off the amount of work that I am putting into my workouts. I am close to 200 grams of carbs a day, and I def notices a difference in my energy level, and also my sleep pattern has gotten a whole lot better, and I am averaging close to over 8 hours of sleep a night, which I also huge for me as well.
