December 19th, day 19:
What may just be my last “free” weekend for awhile, I decided to sleep in a little. I woke up around 7:30-8. I headed to body pump with a protein shake in hand which consisted of 1cup muscle egg, 1/4 cup oats, 1 scoop of metabolic nutrition Protizyme protein, and 2 tbsp pb2. When I got to the gym around 8:30 I hopped on the stairmaster for about 15 minutes on level 15 to get in a quick fasted cardio – according to the machine I burnt 200 calories – cool beans! Then, before body pump I made sure to drink my shake. Pump was from 9am – 10am, followed by a half hour of spin. I got home around 11, and prepared my post workout meal – I was really hungry, so I had 1 cup green beans, 1 cup rice, 1 serving of fresh cut sweet potato fries, 2oz chicken and 2 eggs. After this meal I had some errands to run, but I was super tired, so I headed out to try and get everything done in one shot so I could just rest the remainder of the day. While I was out I picked up some organic beet chips – which had beets, corn flour, and salt as ingredients, and some quest bars … Here we go again with the quest bars. At around 2 pm I had some of the best chips with hummus and 2 of the quest bars .. The thing is, they are tastey but don’t really fill me and when I’m not at work I have no control – I mean I do, but I don’t – and I eat and eat. That’s the whole point of this process though, right? So, anyway, at 3:30 I had another quest bar (thankfully I only bought three) and at 5 an apple. Realizing I had only one full “meal” of whole foods and with a grumbly tummy, I decided around 6:30 to have 4oz chicken and 1 cup of white rice.
This held my tummy pretty well but I was getting sleepy. I decided that my last meal would be around 9pm and would consist of a 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup muscle egg, 1 scoop Of metabolic nutrition Protizyme protein, and 2tbsp of PB2. I cooked this up to make a cake-like consistency a which was quite dry, but tasted good, as always.
Nothing like a little #vominabowl to finish off the day!
Tomorrow I reflect on my training schedule, attempt a new “plan” for the remainder of the 31 days, and start thinking about what happens after the 31 days.
So, stay tuned!
