Hey all. I just wanted to say thanks for all of the support from everyone that saw my clip on CBC. This has been a surreal experience for me and I intend to take full advantage of all the positive feedback and I hope to inspire others to do the same.
What was on the menu today?
- Protein shake with Udo's Oil and an apple
- Veggie pita on whole wheat with TONS of veggies ...and a little tatziki sauce. I haaad to do it.
- ISO whey protein shake - post workout
- Roast beef, baked potato, mixed veggies with a hot pepper relish
- 4L of water
...wow I really didn't eat enough today. I'll have another protein shake before I call it a night. I am also going to create a food journal to make sure this doesn't happen again.
My workout today was pretty intense. I did 25 minutes on the stepper maintaining at least a 155 bpm heart rate and did 4 sprints. Meaning I cranked up the intensity and pushed myself as hard as I could for as long as I could (about 60 to 80 seconds). Following the stepper I did Lat pull downs, 2 sets of 20. I found a weight that I found challenging but would compromise my bad shoulders, hence the higher reps. My forearms and back were on fire so I stopped at 2 sets for now. Abs and then stretching and that was that.
Can't wait for tomorrow. I actually want to work out.
I feel like I could keep blabbering on because I feel like I have so much to share. I'll save it for future posts.
