Today was not intended to be a rest day but I won’t say I’m sad it was. Today was supposed to be cardio flow and we were going to do it this afternoon. I love it when my boyfriend and I are able to workout together.
We got up and had our morning routine including coffee and breakfast. Then we quickly got our things together to run errands and hit the road. With expectations of only being gone a couple of hours, I left highly unprepared without packing any food or snacks. We were gone for more than 6 hours. Oops. I made it through that time having two street tacos and feeling satiated. We came home and did a couple of things around the house and then I cooked dinner (salmon, potatoes and collards that I should have snapped a picture of).
Its now 10:00 and we’re in bed and ready for cardio in the morning and another full day including me leaving for Vegas for work tomorrow night.
My apologies for not posting last night. I flew home from Florida and was delayed in DFW on the tarmac for a while. I didn’t get home until 10:00 and just wanted to go to bed.
Yesterday the focus of my workout was arms, abs and ass and its truly a great workout. Unfortunately the workout requires these sliders for part of the program but they will not work ok the rubber flooring of the hotel gym. So I had to improvise a couple of the moves.
My nutrition was pretty on point yesterday. Even getting Caribou Coffee to blend my superfoods shake in almond milk for me. However, when I got home, I was derailed with a terrible stomach ache which I could only attribute to the salad I had for a post workout meal at the airport in Pensacola. Its the only thing I ate that was out of the norm for me because it had a ton of red pepper in it.
As for today, I changed things up a bit and worked out with my man this evening. I love being home or when he travels and works out with me. Today was called leg day, but I declare my booty was/is in much more pain than my legs. I’m so excited to see the end results.
Food today was all at home. He had a pizza from Mod Pizza and I had a chicken caesar with no dressing and garlic toast for dinner and it was so tasty. That was also my post workout meal. I am actually finding it hard some days to eat all the food suggested by this program, which for me, is a good problem.
Finding a lot of leveled energy, getting sleepy at the right times and getting a good amount of sleep have been coming much easier.
If you guys are at all interested in seeing some of the exercises I’m doing let me know. I’ve been working out in gyms and with trainers most of my life and much of these are very new to me.
Next weekend I’ll start posting some recipes as I’ll be home for the first time since starting this program, for a whole week!
Now its movie and cuddle time so I bid you all a good night.
I don’t have much to tell you today. I’m currently in route home from CA. We’ve been in the car now for 14 hours and we have just under 5 to go. Needless to say, I did not workout. I’ve eaten “street food” ie; drive thru and gas station snacks (but they did have 100% grass-fed jerky much to my delight) and had way too much coffee.
On the other hand, I’m grateful to get a rest day. As much as I loved leg day yesterday, I can barely walk today (and sitting for hours isn’t helping). I’ll be back to my regular exercise schedule and timed nutrition (if you’d like to know more about timed nutrition let me know) tomorrow.
Before I tell you about my leg day, enjoy this featured image of the amazing sunset in San Clemente, CA tonight. This was my view right before dinner. I do love this beach. Now on to my accountability.
I woke up today feeling amazing and so ready to do my workout. Following my normal pre-workout routine, I hit the hotel gym and got it done. It seemed like it wasn’t that bad. I finished my 45 minute leg workout, headed upstairs got ready for work and set out for the long drive to L.A. It was after that drive that I understood what that workout really did for me. Guys…..MY LEGS ARE TOAST! This 80 day program is so fun and the best program I’ve done EVER. I finally know what it is about this program that excites me. Every day is filmed live…every day is different and it’s so entertaining to watch them make their mistakes, grumble and groan and listen to them laugh together. I’ve laughed more in the last 5 days during a workout than I think ever before when I was working out. That’s magic.
Nutrition started out great but due to having to eat two meals out today, it didn’t end as great. Pre-workout was as per usual. Post workout or what ended up being lunch was a cup of soup and a small salad. Two hours later was my Shakeology and then 4 hours later was dinner which was a bun-less burger (probably ended up being about 5 oz and brussels sprouts as well as a handful of sweet potato fries. I tried to at least fulfill my greens, carbs and protein BUT the portions were way too big I’m sure. Unfortunately that is something I’m going to have to deal with and really work at the portion control and choices when eating out.
