Rebounds – Day 18


Monday

This is the first day that I felt like the new routine is sticking. While I had a little bit of hunger cravings around midafternoon, it was very mild and tolerable. My morning began with a 4.6-mile group run. Very busy day but not too stressful. I think this helps keep the cravings down as well. Sitting around bored always seems to generate more cravings than a busy day. I had a coffee but nothing else that would help with the cravings, they were almost nonexistent.

I would like to maintain this window for at least 1-2 more days before adjusting any food intake. I believe that my current intake is off. I am eating too much. I believe this is partially due to the fact that my body is adjusting. The signals from my body/brain are difficult to trust at the moment due to the adjustment phase. I believe that this will level off as I adapt to this new window. Starting Wed/Thurs, assuming everything goes well before then, I will go back to prioritizing protein and trying to get full on that. It is my hope that my meals are leveling back off by this weekend. 

Tomorrow I have a functional workout planned. We will perform it as a group, in pairs. That will be the bulk of my fitness routine tomorrow. At some point I will run a mile as well. The workout routine for the next 3 weeks will be shifting away from a strength focus. I have a fitness test coming up, I generally spend a few weeks prior focusing on performing well on that test. This will mean more body weight exercises, more sprints and more HIIT.
