End of week 2 Picture:
Week 2 wasn’t much different than week 1. It was an adjustment continuing to get back into shape but I can already feel my body responding to the workout. So far I’ve completed just 6 training sessions (3/w x 2 weeks).
Rest, sets, and reps were unchanged for week 2. I continued doing 2 sets of each exercise while rest periods also stayed the same at 45 seconds.
You can see from the picture above not much changed with regards to body compostion. Only 2 weeks into a training program you can’t expect to see results just yet. I do however expect week 3 to get interesting. In the past I’ve normally felt great at or around the 3 week mark. At that point your body is getting stronger and more effiicent with the training.
My diet over this week was still an adjustment. Like I’ve said before getting used to very little carbs takes some time. I slacked off a bit with my vegetable intake and I also cheated once! So I had a small breakfast sandwich one morning which went against my low carb rule (would have been no problem minus the English muffin). The important take away here though us simply moving on. Did having that sandwich derail the progress I’ve making for the 2 weeks. Absolutely not, because I won’t let it. Now IS NOT the time to dwell on that fact I cheated. Forget about it. Move on. it was one slip up. So remember this, if you cheated on your diet plan, get back on track immediately . Don’t let one small insignificant mistake throw you off course.
Here’s some pictures of what I’m eating lately:
Pork tenderloin with white mushrooms
Ahi Tuna with broccoli and white mushrooms
Typical lunch veggies (with ranch dip) , and some lunch meats, and beef jerky, with cheese.
My body weight is hovering around 167 lbs. My body fat scale is reading at about 18.5 bf %. So not much of a change from the start.
