Now that I'm a little more than halfway through my current program, I realize that I really like being on a program and having a pre-set workout schedule. James' workouts are intense. Like, feel like you're going to puke then feel like you got ran over by a bus the next day, intense. I don't think I've pushed myself this hard in a while and I've determined it's because of the structured program. When I'm doing my own thing, I might stop at 8 reps when I could have done 10, or maybe not do a full 30 seconds of jump rope, etc. For some reason when James Wilson is telling me I have to do 3 sets of 10 reps with 15 spidermans on each side, I feel like I HAVE to do it! No option, James says. I of course know that it's all mental and I'm sure I could push myself on my own, but hey if it helps then I'll take it! Anyway, I thought I would let you all know that in case you feel like you may be lacking motivation in the gym, it might be time to jump into a program!
I started my day off with some blueberry pancakes and sugar free syrup! For those of you that follow me on Instagram, you know the recipe!
Rice cake with peanut butter and cottage cheese for snack. Surprised? :)
Open faced tuna sandwich made with greek yogurt, mustard, and topped with tomato.
Turkey zucchini burger and baby carrots dipped in red bell pepper hummus for snack.
I had planned on making a new chicken recipe for dinner but when I got home from work my chicken hadn't defrosted so I had to resort to plan B. Seasoned up some salmon with pepper and lemon juice and threw it on the grill. I had broccoli and cauliflower on the side!
