Day 3, no scheduled workout.
I did go to the gym though, to do some steady state cardio to loosen up my muscles a little bit (ok, let’s be honest, also because I am paranoid that eating so many calories every day is going to make me gain weight!). I was really craving it though, just sitting on a bike, reading and sweating it out. It was good. I plan to do mainly HIIT as my cardio, but I wanted to feel out the first week’s post-workout muscle soreness first.
15 minutes upright bike
20 minutes recumbent bike
10 minutes elliptical
In terms of food…today I have been HUNGRY! Looks like my muscles are finally communicating with my stomach! Meals for the day…
B – oat bran, vanilla rice protein powder, strawberries, greek yogurt, 1T flax seed
S – cottage cheese, canteloupe, leftover egg casserole
L – lean sirloin stir-fried with coleslaw mix (cabbage & carrots)
S – apple and 2T almond butter
D – turkey bolognese, whole wheat rotini, salad
S – protein shake
So far so good. I am paranoid that my pants are getting tighter. That being said, as long as my waist is getting smaller I don’t mind 😉
