22 Minute Hard Corps – Week 2, Day 2

Week 1 flew by and WHEW! am I happy about it! I finished every single workout so far, and for that I am extremely proud. I do have to admit and I so sore and tired today and I am already trying to come up with an excuse to NOT workout tonight, but I told myself (and you all) that I was going to commit to this program so I WILL GET IT DONE TONIGHT. I may need some encouragement (please!), but I will get through it.

Yesterday was the first day of Resistance 2, and here is what I thought of it: OUCH! Between the weighted burpees and the squat jumps, my buns are on πŸ”₯FIREπŸ”₯ today. Here is a quick review of the workouts I have done so far:
-Cardio 1: AWESOME! I have never sweat so much in 22 minutes in my entire life.
-Cardio 2: Brutal. The gorilla crawls and frog burpees are rough, but the key is just do as many as you can.
-Core 1: Awesome. I have to modify a lot because of my hip, but still a fantastic core workout in 10 minutes.
-Resistance 1: My favorite. β™₯ The moves are so doable (I modify the pull ups with a resistance band, but hoping to move to a pull up bar in a few weeks) and you really feel them.
-Resistance 2: Pretty great as well. But those weights jump squats though….

I spent about 2 hours of my Sunday meal planning and prepping for this week, and if everyday goes as good as yesterday (I totally stuck to the meals I had planned), then this is going to be a great week. I told you guys I would let you know what was on my menu this week, so here it goes:

M1: Shakeology. I am a creature of habit, so I always have a chocolate vegan shakeology with water (I am skipping the almond milk this week), ice, and coconut extract. (1 red)
M2: Carrots and 1/4 avocado (1 green, 1 blue)
M3: Salad with grilled chicken and the peanut lime dressing from the nutrition plan (1 green, 1 red, 1 orange)
M4: Fat free cottage cheese with pineapple (1 red, 1 purple)
M5: Dinners are different each day so here are the meals:
Monday: Grilled steaks with asparagus and sweet potato (1 red, 1 green, 2 yellow)
Tuesday: Tuna casserole with roasted asparagus (1 red, 2 yellow, 1 green, 1 blue) (This is not the healthiest meal ever, but the boyfriend wanted it.)
Wednesday: Curry chicken with jasmine rice and pineapple (1 red, 2 yellow, 1 purple)
Thursday: Baked chicken with red potatoes and broccoli (1 red, 1-2 yellow, 1 green)
Friday: Spicy shrimp with sweet potatoes and green beans (1 red, 1-2 yellow, 1 green)
Saturday: Cranberry chicken salad pitas with cucumbers and onions (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 purple, 1 green, 1 orange, 2 tsp)

I thinkΒ know it is going to be a great week.
