It is day one of the new program. On tap for today’s workout was 30 minutes of strength training and 70 minutes of cardio work (including a 10 minute warm up / cool down).
The workout felt really good this morning. It was definitely tougher than my normal workout and I can already feel that I am going to be sore from both the cardio and the strength training. One of the cool things about the New Leaf program is that I can upload my heart rate information from my Garmin watch to the New Leaf program and it will show me how I did. I definitely had some trouble getting my heart rate up and then back down in the correct intervals as you can see from the chart below but I am proud of my results given that this was the first workout!
Today is my first day of trying to eat more consistently. I packed: Fiber One cereal, Gnu Bar, String Cheese, Carrots, and Peanut Butter. While this may not seem like a lot to you it is quite a bit more than I normally eat during the day so I consider it a really good step and I am very interested to see what happens with my energy levels as a result. So far I am feeling good… I am not feeling over stuffed and I am not feeling hungry so it is a success so far. I also don’t think I’ve yawned yet today.
