A Glitch in the Program
I started Beta this week but something I failed to realize was that I was missing TWO videos from my program. I called Beach Body and they sent the missing videos I needed with no problem, but I had to adjust and switch around the calendar of workouts. Now, if you know anything about me, it’s that I’m process oriented. Though this wouldn’t bother most people, it bothered me and I had to really focus and remember that I could still get the workouts in and hopefully do those missing workouts later in the week. I just needed a new plan. It did take me a minute to get past it though.
I started the workouts and let me tell you they are TOUGH. I’m using weights now. Stretchy bands come with the workout, which I tried, but then moved to 5 pound weights and I felt better about some of the moves that required bending or moves lower to the ground. I really can feel it. Even though I got a good foundation with Alpha Phase, I am really having to push through these workouts. I always laugh at my myself when I struggle through because it helps me get past the burn. It’s more calories, right?
My nutrition hasn’t changed. I’m still sticking to 300-325 calorie meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner and 10-150 calorie snacks.
I love chocolate and I love sweets, but guess what? I’m not having any of that this year for Valentine’s Day. It helps that I don’t have a boyfriend right now to give me chocolates…lol. I do have sisters and friends, but they all know what I’m about right now, plus they have boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands and wives, etc, so I won’t see most of them. So it’s movies and healthy trail mix instead of popcorn for me. Yes! Winning!
First Beta Weigh In – What to expect?
I have no idea what to expect from my first week on Beta Phase. Because I am using weights, I could actually gain weight, which would be ok if I lose some inches. It’s hard to know because the workouts are so intense now. So, I’m sure this weigh in will have some surprises.
