TULSA - BLOG | Just finished my second workout of the week this morning and I am tired.
Didn't feel quite as strong this morning due to fighting a head cold with a scratchy throat. It felt like my overall strength was down a little today but made it through the workout.
Wes Cole informed me that my heart rate was up a little compared to doing the same cardio warm-up last time. He knew before I even told him that I must have been fighting some type of cold.
I have one more workout tomorrow morning with Wes, then the weekend will include some light cardio as I try to shake this bug.
I have now been on the 1,900 calorie a day nutritional program for five days and I was shocked at the difference it makes when you create a food journal.
Several days this week I would finish and log my dinner and realize that I had only consumed 1,200-1,400 calories for the day.
But the amazing thing was I did not feel hungry at all through the day! So far, I have not used up my 1,900 calories once -- hope this trend continues!
