This morning I woke up at 4:40am to be at the gym by 5:15am. It felt so good waking up this morning after dreaming all night about the dreams and goals I had made to myself before bed last night. I have a burning desire to compete and own a Figure Competitor body which is 100% Vegan and all Natural.
This excites me enormously! I can't even put words around my excitement! :)
So this morning's plan was to go to the gym and do fat burning cardio for at least 60 minutes. Six weeks ago I did a VO2 Test which told be at what heart rate my body burns fat and what heart rate my body burns glucose. If I keep my heart rate between 124BPM and 156BPM then I am in my fat burning zone... anything over 160BPM I am then burning carbohydrates/glucose. My goal is to stay in the fat burning zone.
I got on the treadmill, watched my heart rate monitor until I was in a safe fat burning zone and then opened up my newest learning material, Vegan Bodybuilding and Fitness by Robert Cheeke. Before I knew it, I had been on the treadmill for 90 minutes! Ha ha ha... times goes by so fast when you're focused on something besides the time. It felt wonderful!

So here it is, my day one to the rest of my future transformation is completed. Yay Me! ;)
