Im in my second day of my second week.
I have been the opposite of the last few posts. I have been on the diet big time. Made an excel spread sheet of the meals that I was willing to make/eat, and spread that out over 8 weeks. I know exactly what I'm eating every day till then.
I was 230lbs when I started, not sure what I am now, probably close to the same. The exorcise is straight up killing me though. I have only been able to swing four days of it because I have been so sore. And at about the 15 minutes left marker, I'm so gassed that im getting 3-10 reps per excercise if that in.
I may end up repeating month 1 just because of how terrible I am in the excercise department. Biggest thing for me though is no booze. I made a pledge to myself that I would not drink till I was done. I have had several friends try to take me to the hospital to make sure that I'm ok, since one can normaly find me with a beer/scotch/jack daniels in my hand.
On a side note, anyone notice the hot red head in the videos? Unnnffff!!!
I would say definately take that rest a little longer. I feel like at the end im not getting a workout because im so beyond that my heart rate just isn't coming down. So maybe give yourself an extra 15 - 30 seconds to come down and start up again.
