Ok. I spend approximately 30 hours of my week getting paid to tell people what to do.
(and I spent at least 30 more telling my husband what to do... but I don't get paid for that.)
That means - I spend approximately 15 hours of my week planning what I'll tell people to do, emailing them when to do what I told them to do and texting them when I have a sneaking suspicion they're not doing what I told them to do.
And you know what...
I just want someone to tell ME
what to do!
(I know... I know... Free Shot...)
A few alterations:
1. Despite the enforced steady-state cardio hiatus, I'll continue to teach at least 1 spin class each week
(In Other Words: Interval city, spin students! Prepare thyselves!)
2. I'm starting alllll the way at the beginning (Phase 1) - which is a smidge (WAY TOO) easy, so I'm adding in some core work, going MUCHO HEAVY on the weights and progressing the simpler exercises.
Given my medical red-shirt status for the last month, it's a great way to crack down without re-injuring.
3. I'm not testing my weight or body fat %.
Numbers wake up my Crazytown Type A Alter-Ego - so we're sticking with "how does my butt look in my jeans?" + "How many heads turn when I flex my guns?" (wearing jeans or otherwise)
4. I skipped to Phase II in the nutrition section, so we're doing limited fruit, starchy carbs when most easily utilized and lean protein/veggies up the yin-yang.
Between you and me... I may not dial up past Phase 3 in the nutrition chapter. It's pretty restrictive and I'm a big fan of intuitive eating/not being miserable.
I'll report back at the end of each Phase (once a month or so) and maybe a few more times in between.
Did the first workout today ... and to quote Lori... I am "pleasantly fatigued." Legs are somewhere between jello and spaghetti but I'm energized!
