Ok so lots of people said that day 3-5 are the hardest and to be prepared to feel like crap, tired, sore, crabby, etc. I will say that aside from the headaches on day 1 and 2 I feel amazing! I'm following the meal plan just as it's laid out and I'm down 5.4 lbs in 3 days. I've lost more than Syed at this point which is a little weird cause I way a lot less than he does. We're thinking it might be the fact that I've accidentally been drinking almost 2x as much water as it calls for. Oops, but it seems to be working!
I feel very much alert, not hungry, if anything I can't even eat all the food that the plan calls for. It's so much food!!! I woke up today at 7 am (exactly the 8 hour mark) wide awake and wanting to get out of bed. But I thought, who am I? I love to sleep and I don't have to be anywhere so why not take advantage of this. I made myself go back to sleep until 10:30 when Novali came and got me.
Syed and I did some stretching with Insanity Asylum's Relief dvd, that felt great. Afterwards and for the rest of the day my legs were very achy so that was a little uncomfortable. We spent all day relaxing, watching movies, cooking, and just feeling very content.
That's the one thing, there's so much cooking involved! All meals need to be prepared fresh, so our kitchen and dishwasher have been getting A LOT of use. The hard part will be continuing with this AFTER the 21 days are up! I'm feeling so good I've had NO cravings and when I even think about the things I usually eat as take out, it doesn't even sound appealing. No Cinco de Mayo indulgences for us!
Here's to good health!
