End of week 1. Wow! What a crazy week this has been. Challenging to say the least, but hay, I made it.
This week I focused on adding fasted cardio in the morning. For me this was quite a challenge, mostly because throughout my whole life I never really believed in it. But this transformation is all about changing the game, so I’m getting it done. Important thing to remember when doing fasted cardio is that its steady state low intensity, NOT high intensity. I kept the treadmill on 5 incline and 5 speed for 40-60 minutes. The first 3 days was hectic, but then it gets easier. My advice is to get something to do that will keep you busy. Catch up on emails, or if you are like me that struggle to walk and chew gum at the same time, just put up some YouTube content and walk till the time is up. It really helps to be distracted and not watch the time every step.
I can honestly feel a big difference already and as you can see in the photos its already VERY noticeable. On that note, another tip. Keep taking as many photos as you can throughout your journey. Guaranteed that when you workout you WILL look at yourself in every mirror and every reflexion of every window. You look at yourself all the time and don’t always notice the change. Photos is a good way to keep track of your progress and will be huge motivation for you along the way.
Anyway, back to the topic of the day. Week one. It became even more clear to me that gut health and hydration is key. So get these right and you are well on your way to a great transformation. As crazy as this week has been, I can’t wait for the next week! Time to level up and push even harder! Nothing is going to stop me!
