Week 2 reflections

Well its the end of week two. I’m not sure I have any great insights this week. I’m more on auto-pilot, back in the BFL groove. I’ve gotten past the hungry stage and am now in this, “God do I really have to eat again?” stage. Not near as sore as I was week one….

BFL Blog buddy

I have a virtual training partner in Sean Willson. He started this challenge the same day I did and is also blogging it. He’s also using the Success Journal. I got his blog off your Yahoo BFL group I’m part of and realized it is good to know someone is reading your blog, so I…

Day 11

Almost 2 weeks in and somethings are getting easier and some harder. Its easier to get up early, if I pay attention to going to bed early. Its easier to do my bike riding. Its hard to resist cokes during the week, but I’ve done it. I’m really having trouble doing my Power Mindset exercises….

Day 9

Tips from week one

Here are some tips for newbies in their first week: Its gonna hurt. There is going to be muscle soreness, and a lot of it. You’ll have DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), hopefully, through the whole twelve weeks. But the first weeks are probably going to be the worst and the most pervasive. There really…

Day 6

It’s the weekend and I do a weird hybrid day off. I just got back from a bike ride and will wait an hour before I eat, but the rest of the day if free eating day. I’ve been saving up. I want Buffalo Wings, Dr. Pepper, and M&Ms. I was reading in the success…

Day 5

Got up this morning as goaled at 6:45 AM. Started working out at 6:55 and finished Upper Body at 8:16. Suanna worked out with me till 8 when she had to go. This work out is taking too long. I know it is the switching between two people that is making it long. Guess I’ll…
