Day 15 of RSG Log
Today was a pretty awesome day. I handed myself my ass during my workout. Who woulda thunk I could pour sweat out so much during a plank? Then again, that was at 100 seconds and me telling myself, "HOLD IT FOR 20 MORE SECONDS!" Of course, I'm on the gym floor grunting at myself, but I did it! WOOT!
Workout Today: BW Brigade Workout B
BW Rows (Smith Machine #6): 5,6,6,7 = 24
Close Hand Push-Ups (On knees still): 15,15,10,15=55
Lunges: 15, 15, 15, 20 = 65 (each leg!)
Plank: 60s, 90s, 120s, 70s = 340s
I was too pooped at the end to even worry about squat thrusts!
I had to do a training during the time I normally go to the gym. Since I normally also eat lunch after my workout, I didn't want to eat a big meal before the gym. So, I had my snack at "lunch time" and my lunch at "snack time", which ended up with me eating a big meal at 4pm. Needless to say, I'm not very hungry for dinner. I'm thinking of making a walnut butter protein shake in a bit though.
Breakfast: Attempted an egg burrito using an egg-white "tortilla". Was good, but not so much a grab and go... had some green pepper in there.
AM Snack: Apple & Almonds
Noontime Meal/Snack: Carrot, Celery & Hard Boiled Easter Eggs
Big ol' meal @ 4pm: Homemade Smoked Pork Sausage (YUMMERS!), Garlic Cauliflower (Also yummers) & A bit of sweet potato.
Snack on the train: Nuts & Fruit from Starbucks with green tea
Smoothie Before Bed: Protein Shake with Walnut Butter, a bit of frozen berries and coconut milk.
I recalculated my calories and decided to aim around 2000 with all of the activity I do. On a given strength training day, according to my HRM I burn around 400-600 calories. On my cardio days, I burn around 600-700 calories. Given that, with my estimated BMR around 2100, I think 2000 is a good goal. I'm going to aim at that this week and see how that feels and what the results are.
Oh! Also I decided to do pictures every 2 weeks for the challenge... I can already see a difference. I was flipping between them on my computer and, wow...
