I was pretty ecstatic to start this new program and to get my sore on, but man did it burn!
Day 2 of Fitness Blender’s 8 Week Fat Loss Program Round 5 was a HIIT training session along with a glute/thigh workout. I was pretty sore today which actually hasn’t happened in a while because I was pretty good with my leg workouts. It’s kind of nice to get back into working out because for a while I felt completely out of shape! I can always tell when I’m out of shape because that time of the month will be particularly painful as it was last week. Sometimes it sucks being a girl (but for the most part, I enjoy it).
I have to say, I really appreciate all that Kellie and Daniel, the power couple behind Fitness Blender, does for us. They are so ridiculously creative with their workouts! They make exercising fun and interesting while creating such a huge library of various workouts – not an easy feat.
On another note, I just moved in with one of my best friends from high school and the experience has been amazing thus far. Yesterday we created our lunches for the week – well, sort of. I was supposed to make turkey meatballs but I got lazy. I’ll have to do it tomorrow instead. I plan on making turkey meatballs and pairing them with quinoa salad and steamed broccoli.
We went to Costco and bought a huge packet of chicken and holy crap, those chickens must have either been the fattest chickens on the face of this earth or they must be on all kinds of hormones because they were humongous. We opted for the non-organic (aka “natural”) kind, but I think next time we will go with the safer route of eating non-genetically modified chickens.
Here was my food intake for the day:
Breakfast: Homemade chocolate shake
Lunch: Homemade Asian BBQ Chicken with Asian salad and broccoli
Snack: Kind Bar
Dinner: Leftover Greek food – chicken shawarma, tabouli, mushroom, etc. (wasn’t that much, ate most of the leftovers before)
Snack: Hummus and cucumber**
Fage 0% Plain Greek Yogurt with Kiwi
**Tip: if you love hummus but don’t want the carbs of regular pita chips, cucumber slices are so delicious with hummus! Bell peppers work too. :)
I weighed myself today after quite some time, and I’m at 104.4 pounds. Really would like to gain some weight in the form of muscle. I sometimes think I’m incapable of eating a lot which prevents me from gaining muscle. I envy those that can gain muscle so easily.
