Day 21 - Early morning "Pure Cardio"!

I got up early again this morning and completed today's workout: Pure Cardio. This is probably the toughest workout for me with the Plyometric one coming in at a close second. However this morning I felt great and really did push myself to my limits. I am starting to really get used to the movements which I think is helping me with my form. I still have to stop and rest and the 'drills' are still very challenging; my arm strength, although better than when I started, its still my weakest area so I do find myself having to adapt the push-up type drill exercises...but I am getting better. 

The biggest area of focus for me now is my food intake and nutrition. I have started to use again to track what I am eating and drinking and I have started to cook myself some 'clean and lean' meals using mostly vegetables (from my Riverford Organic Food veg box that I get delivered each week). I am getting back into the nutritional routine that I was doing earlier in the year, when I lost quite a bit of weight. I hope to combine the benefits I got earlier in the year from healthy eating with my workout challenge so that when I have finished this challenge in December I will be in the best shape of my life! 

I have also sorted out my workout schedule so that I can catch up on the now two additional rest days that I have taken this week. So I am still scheduled to finish this superb challenge on the 18th December (41 days to go)!
