First, I met my 2500 FP goal both yesterday and today. Woot!
Eating was a bit off, but not too bad. We had Tuesday's meal tonight as planned, but I felt really snacky, ya know? Ended up only eating a 100 calorie pack of cookies, so whew! Saved by the those little chocolate striped Keebler things.
Water intake was down a bit, but fluids in general were ok.
I was very tired all day today - even had a nap after work. I still got in the 30 minutes on the treadmill @ 3.0 mph though. That's an increase from my usual 2.5 - 2.8mph. I even sweated a bit.

Now, on to the Training Plan...
I realized yesterday as I was working out that I would only work each muscle group once every 7 days. I feel that's just too long and that there should be a shorter interval between working those muscles. So, I did some research and I found that it's okay to work all muscle groups with a rest day in between. Therefore, I have a new plan:
(Adapted from Body Builder website's Beginner Weight/Strength Training Workout)
Cardio warm-up for 5-10 minutes
Two sets of 8-12 reps with enough weight heavy enough to barely make the entire set (muscle fatigue)
Work muscle groups in order from largest to smallest
Quads: Seated press / Leg extensions
Hamstrings: Front Leg Raise / Ball Leg Curl
Calves: Calf raises
Back: Lat pulldowns
Chest: Bench Press / Chest Fly
Triceps: Tricep Pushdown
Biceps: Bicep Curls
Shoulders: Seated Press
Abs: Ball crunch / Reverse crunch
I will be doing these exercise on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I may decide later to break these groups out into several days per week, but I cross that bridge when I can RUN over it instead of crawl =D
