P90X Plyo Makes Me Grouchy?
Plyo day. I forget how week 2 can seem to be tougher. You think week one is tough, but week 2 seems to exhaust you more. Less pain, just more exhaustion. Maybe is because we push harder because the pain is less. Maybe we think we survived week one, we push harder week 2.
So I pushed harder. And I actually stopped a bit early due to running behind. But hey, I had already burned through almost 600 calories, even stopping early!
Yesterday my carb intake was moderation. Shake for breakfast (only around 23g), salad at lunch (15g maybe?), veggies at dinner (another 20g maybe?), so I think I was between 60-70g. But sleep last night was not good. Well, slept fine, just did not get enough. I did wake up on my own, but it was less than 7 hours of sleep.
So…with that, and knowing my body is still in the converting to fat burning instead of carb burning, and not getting sleep, Plyo felt that much more rough.
But contrary to my title, I don’t think Plyo made me grouchy…just thought it was catchy! Rather, I think the sleep, the conversion process, and the exercise contributed to me being more tired. So speaking of which, it’s almost bed time.
But here is my intake today:
Breakfast – 4 slices bacon, 3 eggs, sweet potato, some scallions, all cooked and put together in one big hash.
Lunch – Salad. Some chicken.
Supper – New York Strip with Cajun butter, lots of veggies
