T25 Journal – Week 2

Week 1 is in the books! And while I’m not fitness model status yet I did lose 6 pounds which I’ll happily take. If you want to see me diet guidelines you can check out my T25 Week 1 Journal.

I could probably stick to a cleaner diet 100% of the time if I wanted to, but I’m finding there are those social occasions and cravings when I just don’t want to. So I’m realistically shooting for about 90% adherence on the diet front. Reckon if I can eat clean about 90% of the time I should hit my goals.

Going into Week 2 I’m trying to integrate Focus T25 into my daily routine if I’m not riding. I need to get into the habit of making it the first thing I do before the day just completely gets away from me.

It’s interesting keeping a journal because you start seeing patterns and habit I didn’t realize were there. For instance towards the end of the week I have a high likelihood of coming home from work, saying let’s do whatever, and running down the street for a beer and burger.

So going into week 2 a few pounds lighter and a little more use to everything, here goes…

Workout – Focus T25 Speed 1.0 Alpha – Missed it

Daily Note – Missed workout in the AM and got home late from work. Decided to go out with the family and get ice cream after. Know it’s not the best for the ol’ waistline but reckon it’s not horrible in moderation. Also sneaked a donut into my morning. Someone bought it for me and handed it to me so had to take one for the team, right?

Daily Note – Went for longer bike ride in the AM which was OK, but after eating like a glutton a little harder. Also in continuing on birthaversary had an epic dinner that set me back quite a bit but how often do you get escargot, steak tartar and lobster in the same meal…I mean come on!

Workout – Focus T25 Cardio Alpha & 4 mile Walk – Complete

Daily Note – After a huge weekend of gluttony I managed to get in a 4 mile walk followed by T25 Cardio Alpha. Did this on the back porch and thank goodness I did. I was a huge sweaty mess after this workout. This video and Speed 1.0 are actually some of the hardest if you lack coordination, but I’m getting there…slowly but surely.
