Yesterday's work out did a number on my thigh muscles so I waited rather late to even attempt day 2's regimen.
I ended up modifying to marches instead of high knees, and I looked up a suitable alternate to the high jumps (ended up being high knees) because there was NO way I could jump in my current state. I did somewhere between Level 1 and 2 (8 sets) to make up for the fact that I had to modify both exercises. I feel a little bit like I skirted things but I'm glad I at least did what I managed to.
I did however make great strides in the diet area! For lunch I ate very simply - a chicken caesar wrap that was much more delicious than I expected. No chips! No soda! I had chicken nuggets for dinner but they were prepared at home & baked, not fried. A serving of 12 is 320 calories & I only had 8. So not too bad honestly!
I also bought quite a few items on the Modern Hero Diet list to get that started. Organic cucumbers, carrots, hummus, ham, greek yogurt, tomato juice, and raw honey for detox tea!
The detox tea has a basis of apple cider vinegar which has acetic acid. That's supposed to be good at helping with weight loss. You can also just put a tablespoon of ACV in a bottle of water and drink that.
Detox Tea Recipe
- Apple Cider Vinegar - 2 tbsp
- Lemon Juice - 2 tbsp
- Raw Honey - 1 tbsp
- Cinnamon - 1 tsp
- Cayenne Pepper - just a dash!
It's suggested to have in the morning but with my work schedule, possibly having to run to the restroom in the morning isn't an option, so I drink it after work where I don't have to worry about that. I have the bottle of water with ACV in the morning instead. I don't think you should drink more than the two servings a day though because it's an acid; especially if you suffer from any kind of constant heartburn/acid reflux.
I now also take garcinia cambogia everyday as well - another supplement that's supposed to help with weight loss. But I've also read it doesn't. I got it free though so I said, "what the hell!" Worst comes to, it doesn't work but the exercise & dietary changes will.
The last thing I have got to get myself doing is having breakfast! I never eat it and its not a good practice at all. Even a protein bar is better than nothing. Luckily we have a canteen at my job and they have healthy food options, including protein bars so I'm just going to make sure I have one each day. If not a bar, some kind of sensible breakfast.
That about wraps up day two though! I took some pain relievers so I'm not walking all funny tomorrow. I...don't know what to expect tomorrow, but I'm going to take more painkillers before I do it so I don't have to cut corners. Goodnight!
