Well here we are 10 weeks in, or 1 week in depending on how you look at it. The first thing I can tell you after 10 days of hitting the gym pretty hard; I’m sore and tired. These definitely may seem like negatives, but hey my body is not used to this kind of activity and it will adjust in due time.
I will say I am really enjoying this new workout plan, it’s not the same thing day in and day out, and I do feel, even after just 10 days, I’m getting stronger. But now I’ve got to think about supplementing my diet. I’ve never been a huge fan of all these supplements out there, but it is very apparent to me that I am losing nutrients that my body would prefer to have. So I’ve started the search for a descent supplement plan. If you have any recommendations I’d love you to comment below this post. Honestly there is just so much you can use and take and I don’t want to spend $200-$300 a month on supplements. I am also contemplating finding some sort of meal planning solution, whether it be a google doc or some sort of paid service I will let you know. This is mainly because diet is tough, and the biggest problem for me is having a plan, so if I find a way to have a regular plan I think I can keep myself on track better.
My tip this week is “Be Flexible”, not everything is going to work out the way you want everyday. You need to find a way to roll with the blows, and always have an alternate plan. With diet, know what you can eat if you get stuck somewhere out of the ordinary. Know how to modify things in the gym if you don’t have the right equipment. Don’t be mad when you can’t do things at your exact schedule, you can figure it out, and being flexible will keep you going.
