Warp Speed Fat Loss - Day 1 of 28

"But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint." - Isaiah 40:31

Stacey and I officially started the Warp Speed Fat Loss program today. We packed all our meals and snacks for the day on Sunday evening. Although the meals are fairly low carb throughout the week, Monday was our higher carb day due to the intense training in the evening.

We were both amazed that the meals were so filling, as they looked as though we would be starving in between meals after seeing it on paper. I'm sure some of the other days will be tougher as they will have less carbs. Also, we will need to make some adjustments this week to make sure we are following the correct meal plan according to our size and goals. We may be consuming too many calories.

Today's strength workout was definitely a bit different than what I had been doing the last few weeks, but it was good. There are three strength workouts per week combined with heavy circuits and intervals (Mon, Wed, Fri) and there are three high intensity interval training sessions combined with steady-state moderate/high aerobic training (Tues, Thurs, Sat). This is Monday's workout for the duration of the program - CLICK ME!

Starting with heavy squats definitely made some of the other exercises more painful, as our legs were feeling like Jello halfway through the first circuit. It went fairly well throughout, and we were both sweating. There is a learning curve with some of the exercises, but by the time we repeat this workout, we should be on our A-game. The good thing is that we only have to repeat this workout three more times. And now we are down to 27 days.

Tomorrow is a high intensity interval training day combined with some moderate/high intensity steady-state aerobic training to help burn up some fat. We also have a normal carb day which means less carbs than today, but it shouldn't be too bad as protein is kept high along with plenty of healthy fats.

I'll post how things progress in the next few days.
