I woke up feeling sore. It felt like I worked out for the first time yesterday. The bottom of my feet felt sore too. But other than that I felt great! The calorie tracker I use has a breakdown of all of the nutrients I take in each day. It tells me the maximum amount I can have per day and I have been very good not to go over my fats, cholesterol, sodium, carbs, and sugar. I was very close the my max for sodium so I had to be careful to what I ate for dinner. I figured out my meal and ended up being just a little under.
I had a very good work out today. My feet didn’t feel as sore by the time I had to do my workouts so I wore my Vibram FiveFingers. I did the usual from home and hit the gym. The elliptical I have been using for the past week or so happens to be in front of the TV that has the Food Network on it. I don’t know why but I like being in front of it as I work out. On the TV next to it, they have MTV. I have been watching bits and pieces of “I Used To Be Fat” for the past week or so. Watching the transformation on some of the people in the show gives me more motivation to work harder. Most of them are heavier than me so if they can do it, I can.
I did HIIT again today and I still did not sprint at my max speed but I ran at a good enough pace. HIIT keeps the body burning calories long after working out. When I left the gym, my body felt like I was still working out. In fact, I still feel it now!
