I don't know if I'm coming down with something or this is sugar withdrawls but I feel like I have the worst hangover without the fun of getting one. Yesterday was day one and went well and so far today it is going good except for feeling like total crud. Has anyone went thru this?
Yes! This past weekend but today was better. I think it was due to the heatwave we had (I live in upstate NY). Our workout room is usually in the low 60's but with the temp spiking it was 78 degrees! Too hot to workout, even though we pushed ourselves and workout anyway! I was dragging all weekend! Now we opened windows and ran fans all night so it was much better this morning!
There will be a lot of good, strong days intermixed with a few days where you really have to PUSH yourself! So try to keep pushing!

My first week, I felt like someone had beaten the living pulp out of me and then thrown me under a bulldozer for just good measure. Do you feel something like that?
Your body is responding to all of the wonderful changes and choices you're making for it, but much like our minds, our bodies are slightly change-resistant. (That's why lifting weights works!) Once you get into the groove, however, you won't be able to miss a workout because you'll realize how AWESOME you feel after a good, high intensity effort!
Remember that it takes 21 days to change a habit, and those 21 days will pass before you know it! Keep up the awesome work!!

Yeah those first couple of days are moody for sure. You body is all confused about what you are doing and it's fighting back. Stick to the plan and you'll feel totally different in a few days.
