End of Day 1

Well, I didn't do toooo terribly with sticking to my plan today.   I will admit that I did cave and buy a latte.  I had a raging caffiene headache that was probably enhanced by the stupid lights in my new office.   The latte did the trick to kill most of it.  I am going to try to wean off coffee by the end of the week.  I was doing so well after my stomach flu, but since Saturday, I've managed to kill all that progress with a daily cuppa.  I also managed to drink a few more calories in a protien shake after TRX class...but I think my body needed it because it worked so hard...more later...

My eating was almost stellar, though.  I was hungry a great deal of the time, but I know that once my stomach starts to shrink a bit, I'll be fine.  It's just the first few days that really suck in that regard.  

Tonight I did my first TRX class at the gym in Langdon.  It's a TRX boot camp and I went into it not really knowing what to expect.  I actually really enjoyed the workout.  Having a real live person orient me with the system was probably my best fitness idea ever.  Well, close anyway.   The instructor geared tonight's class at giving me a thorough orientation so I could make up my mind.  By the time the 45 mins were up, I don't think there was a single muscle in my body that wasn't quaking.   Tomorrow could be interesting.

My goal for the month, though, is to go once a week and see if I actually like the TRX system.  If I do - then I will just buy one for at home...the cost of the system is really just the same as 4 months at the gym. I reserve the right to retract that thought though if I find I am really benefiting from the live class.  I signed up to take a class every Wednesday in June.    Plus - this gets me some dedicated strength in my weekly routine so I am just going to roll with it and see where it takes me.

I am feeling pretty good about June so far.   One month isn't that long and surely I can stick with a plan for that long.
