Day 6. That makes six consecutive days of 20-30 minutes of intense cardio workouts and eating healthy, low fat food 5 times per day.
What do I have to show for it?
Nothing, I have lost not one ounce.
I had almost no energy on the bike this morning and peddling at difficulty level 15 was incredibly dificult. Either my legs are just exhausted after 6 intense days, or I should have eaten something befpore I worked out this morning.
I burned a measley 233 calories.
10 minutes at level 10
Going from 10 to 15 twice
My workout was not good at all, however, I think I have a solution.
The real Body for Life program is a 6 day per week workout with upper body weight lifting one day, lower the next and cardio last.
Since I bicycle so much, around 1,000 miles each yeah, I am going to skip the lower body workout for now, and start doing an upper body workout every third day, starting tomorrow, Sunday Dec 5th.
This will give my legs a break.
Breakfast: oatmeal, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and two of sugar.
Snack 1: jello pudding
Lunch: 1 piece of pepperoni pizza, turkey sandwich with mustard and pickles, and a full can of mixed vegetables
Snack 2: nothing
Dinner: snacked at christmas party, 3 no bake cookies, 6 mini pigs in a blanket, mixed veggies with ranch, 1 cup of green bean casserole, and lemonade
Here’s to hoping I lose weight next week! Thank you to all those encouraging me, especially my sister-in-law with her words of encuragement and my workout wise friend for his advice.
A piece of fruit with a little protein(cheese stick, a few nuts, spoonful of peanut butter) is a great way to keep your stomach satisfied til your next meal.The nuts have the good fat your body needs and a little bit goes a long way.Or if you workout in the morning- a glass of chocolate milk has the nutrients your muscles need to repair themselves.Keep up the good work!
Proud of ya! Keep it up, I know you can do it!!
