Day 10 of Operation Shape Up
Today is Friday and was a complete rest day. I didn't feel as if my body needed a rest, I wasn't aching too badly, but with my knowledge of the human body, rest is critical for recovery. For this reason I enjoyed a well earned rest day from training.

Usual morning routine of 3 x omega 3 capsules, Juice Plus+ Premium Plus Capsules and BCAA capsules.

Day Summary: My body seems to be getting used to the fasted period. It is harder to wait until 12-1 pm to eat, especially when I'm up in the mornings at 5.30 am. It's mind over matter, though and I'm staying strong. Today was a bust day and the end to a busy week. I'm keen to follow the lean gains method for a minimum of 4 weeks and incorporate the Juice Plus+ Shakes, soups and bars into the plan. Day 10 complete so not long to go now.
