Time to Plan
The minute your cycle 1 plan lands in your inbox, you'll want to go full steam ahead and begin immediately. But the easiest way to fail on this plan is to be unprepared. Take a breath, and read through the whole plan a couple of times so you really understand it. Then grab a notebook or planner (or start a spreadsheet) and plan out your first week of workouts, plotting the recipes you want to try around them. Shop for the ingredients, make sure your workout kit is good to go, order your protein powder (hint: Cinnamon Danish), and get rid of all the wine, chocolate, and other temptations you have hiding in the house. Now you're actually ready to start!
