Chalean Extreme

Today is my official start date of Chalean Extreme. I got together with friends and did Burn it off and Recharge. I really liked both of these. Burn it off is a great cardio workout. It got my heart rate up and I was sweating like crazy. Recharge was a great way to bring my heart rate back down and do some stretching. I would like to hold the poses a little longer and I do think I could've done a little more cardio, but I loved them both.

We are doing a test group to see how well this works for all of us. I need to get my eating back under control and figure out some way to eat the amount of protein that is called for. I really don't want to eat much animal protein, but I have added fish and eggs back into my diet for the next 90 days. I'll see how I am doing after 30 days and then re-evaluate.

We took our before pictures and measurements. I wasn't too happy with either, but I know that I am in control of how these will look at the end of the 90 days. I can only be mad at myself if I don't succeed.

We had a scare yesterday with Jake. He dropped a shotgun shell and it went off and hit him in the neck. God blessed us and he only had to have 6 stitches. It could've been a lot worse and I am so thankful that it wasn't.

Tomorrow is a rest day for us and then we will hit it hard with Burn Circuit 2 on Tues.
