Round Two – Day 38: Trying to Get Used to Mid-Week Rest Day

Round Two – Day 38: Rest Day

I have an economics class tonight and will not be getting home until 10:00 p.m.. Starting last week, I moved my rest day to accomodate this new schedule. It is really driving me crazy. I am much more restless throughout the day, knowing that I won’t get any excersise. Using my rest day on a weekday seems wasteful and doesn’t feel right. I guess I need to suck it up and get used to it. Hopefully, the degree will pay off. MBA Graduation = December, 2011.

  1. Congrats on the continued success! I have two questions:

    Do you take the recovery drink everyday?
    What meal plan are you in?

    I am about to start Phase 3 and feel like I need to stay in the Phase 2 meals.

    Thanks for your help!

    • Welcome back Lee,

      I do drink the recovery drink everyday (except rest days.) I have grown to like the taste and actually look forward to it. With this being said, I am not 100% convinced that it is doing anything different than if I were to gulp down a gatorade. Gatorade would probably be cheaper too…. My advice is drink it if you like it, and have the money to keep up the recovery drink habit. if not, switch to a small bottle of gatorade during or after workouts and you will get the same result: quenched thirst.

      For my meal plan, I do somewhat of a portion plan. However, the P90X meal book isn’t accurate when it comes to the portion plan. If you eat the portions that they recommend and match them with the food they have listed, your percentages will be incorrect. Go to http://www.fitday.com and plug in the foods that you eat each day. It will give you a pie chart that shows your proteins, carbs, and fats; it’s free too. I did the fat shredder for the first month of each rounds, then switched over to the phase II diet and stayed there. It doesn’t make sense to go to phase III if you haven’t yet reached your target body fat. However, don’t stay in phase I for more than 30 days, because the proteins intake will mess with your kidneys and liver.

      Phase 1: 50% / 30% / 20%;
      Phase 2: 40% / 40% / 20%; <<—- I stay right here.
      Phase 3: 20% / 60% / 20%.
