“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.” -Jim Rohn

OK time to check in. Yesterday was my rest day and since I wrote about leaky gut I opted not to post my current stats. So here you go:

26 days in I’ve lost 2.4 lbs and 8.25″. Now, as much as I wish the scale had a bigger number, I cannot be dissatisfied with that inches lost number. Especially since I was on the road traveling for 17 of those 26 days. That’s pretty damn good results.

Today started phase two. Here is the shocker for me. Yesterday, when I did my stats and entered all the information for this phase, it told me I am supposed to eat MORE! People…I couldn’t even eat all the food for phase one and now I’m supposed to eat 200 calories more. Well, lets just say that that ain’t happening. I am happy to eat plenty and get my nutrition but my body works like this: When I’m working out and fueling my body properly, I don’t have cravings or want to eat a lot. That’s just how I am. When I’m complacent and lazy is when I eat a ton. It may sound backward and maybe its from years of eating out of boredom or to heal emotions but when all my gears are working well and properly, I eat food when I need it and ONLY when I need it. What’s your diet like when you exercise?

For food today I kept it very simple. Grain free pancakes this morning, homemade grain free fruit bar for lunch and salmon, cooked greens and sautéed butternut squash for dinner. No snacking except for a couple of sultanas after dinner. When I eat light like that, it makes me feel much better. And due to me trying to get my gut health right, I’ve cut out all my shakes except the post workout protein which I may also exclude if after a week I’m not seeing the improvement I’m looking for. I’ve really been digging making all my food from scratch. Why not try making my own post workout protein, too, if need be. Any good suggestions?

And finally my workout was insane in the membrane. It was all about that booty and man did she make it hurt. Here are a couple of shots of what it was like. If you choose to laugh at my look of bewilderment I understand. The first day of a brand new workout is a bit confusing but even I will laugh at my facial expressions.
