If this is Tuesday...

it must be interval day. I've moved to the next level in my training. I've been doing 3 intervals but today I moved up to 4. Whew, what a jump. It really felt good though.

A few posts ago I extolled the virtue of the Afterburn program. Well, truth be told, I wasn't following it as I should have been. I was doing pretty well on the nutrition side, probably 75% compliance rate. The exercise side was not so good. That probably only garnered a 50% compliance rate. Not very good and hardly an endorsement for the program. But, in spite of me, it's been working. I've gotten into smaller size shorts. I know I've lost fat around my middle and I see muscles on my arms and legs that weren't there a few months ago. So that's all good.

Over the weekend I was looking at some athletes and admiring their muscular, sculpted bodies and wondered if I could look like that. I then realized that 75% nutritional compliance and 50% training compliance was never going to get me there. So I recommitted to the program. I am taking it slow and shooting for 1 week of perfection at a time. (Perfection = 90% compliance with eating and 100% compliance with exercise). Yesterday went well and today if off to a good start. We'll see what happens at the end of the week.

Nothing else to say. I'm going to eat breakfast and then get some work done.
