Snack - Nadda, too close to calories without working out and my sugar was way over. :(

Day 5 - Back on Track!

Since I missed the Cardio Recovery yesterday I planned on doing it today, well five minutes in and I realized I didn't deserve to take it that easy since I took yesterday off so I fast forwarded to the Pure Cardio and it was intense!

I pushed myself harder today than I have in the past two weeks of working out.  It was extremely hard and I had to take extra breaks, but I paused the DVD caught my breath and dove right back in with them and finished!

When I say I pushed myself, I mean I had already burned over 200kcal by the time I had warmed up and done my stretching!

Now, I didn't do everything perfect by any means...I still modified movements that I couldn't do like the jack-up's...which are crazy hard!  I did like one and fell flat on my face so I then started doing regular push-ups.  Next set I attempted one more and again fell flat on my face so I continued doing regular push-ups until I finally finishing with modified girl push-ups.

(I set up my phone so that when it came time for the cool down I could say "capture" and my phone would snap a few shots.  The color was all wonky so I made it B&W.)

Today was hard, but felt really good too!


I drank my Shakology soon after and ate a banana which I am sure helped.

How I feel - Honestly, I don't know if it was because I took the day off yesterday, but I feel GREAT!  Even after today's tough workout.

Per my HRM my Average HR was 153 with a HIGH of 204...high, but I really kicked it into overdrive (for me).

My total work out time was 50 min and my HR was "in-zone" for only 19.44 not great, but I will get there.

Calories burned today were 795kcal!!!

Tomorrow's workout
Plyometric Cardio Circuit

Breakfast - Oatmeal with Stevia in the Raw
Warm Lemon Water
Coffee with Natural Bliss Creamer

Snack - None, breakfast ran late and we went to lunch.

Lunch - Two pieces of spicy tuna and three of crab sushi rolls
Sauteed zucchini, broccoli, and mushrooms with two eggs, no sauce.

Snack - Chocolate Shakology with Almond Silk and ice

Dinner - Easy "crock pot" salsa chicken with corn, black beans, cheese, spinach, spring mix, natural sour cream, and blue chips

Snack - Back to Nature CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES!!!!  Soooo yummy!

Slowly getting better with my eating, but I still need to get to bed earlier.  I am not giving my body enough recovery time with the little amount of sleep that I get.
