Today is the second day.. Kind of the first real day as I'm not fed from the day before with other foods. Still, it's 9:40AM, I'm an hour and 20 minutes away from being allowed to eat, and I feel fine.
I also weighed myself again to see if some of that water weight has started to shift.. I was shocked to find myself at 232.1 pounds. So I'm down 2.5 pounds from yesterday. I expected to start losing some of the water but not that quickly.
The Workout Plan
Today will be the day to restart the Stronglifts 5x5 program. I will be doing it Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday's. This lets me keep up with my D&D group, while also having a consistent schedule. Hopefully I won't be super tired as I need to do the workout anyway.
Speaking of being tired, I think the reason I'm feeling this way is that I abruptly cut out caffeine. That might also explain the mild headaches I've been having. I figure that I need to reduce or eliminate caffeine so that I stay as hydrated as possible.
Stuck mostly to the plan. I didn't have the protein shake, but I had a little extra cheese. I'm still under calories. I consider this a win. I stopped eating at about 7:20. But, that shouldn't be the biggest deal.
I resisted the urge to take a nap. I want to establish a better sleep schedule. I slept in today, and had to take a cab. I wish I'd have walked or biked. After the lull this afternoon and into the evening, I started to feel a bit better.
I completed the first day of the stronglifts program. It's basically no weight, and I can handle a lot more but part of this whole endeavor is to ensure I'm disciplined. 12 weeks feels like a long time right now, but I know it's not. If I stick to the plan, I'll get there.
