Day 3– Sunday, 1/27/13
TRAINING –¬†Yesterday was Day 3 of Phase 1 of the Livefit trainer. I had to work 10-6 at the salon, but I couldn’t wait to hit the gym right after. Why? Because Day 3 was all about targeting muscles in the Legs and Calves. Working out my lower body is my favorite area to train. I just love it – don’t ask me why- I just do.
Squat like your ass depends on it…¬†
and I did…
Before we started we ate a small clean snack and took our supplements. Then we hit the gym. The work out went really well.¬†J and I did 3 sets of 12 for each exercise, with resting for one minute between each set. I used the app gym boss in order to keep track of my timing. I highly recommend this app. It took J and I about 1 hour to accomplish the whole work out. We ended the work out with our protein shake, BCAA, and glutamine. I juiced organic kale, celery, and pineapple. I add this juice along with a blended banana to my protein shake. This tasted amazing. ¬†A little organic pineapple can really sweeten a drink.
NUTRITION –¬†I started my day with a clean breakfast, consisting of two hard boil eggs and greek yogurt. I am beginning to love hard boil eggs! They are a wonderful source of clean protein and they are super convenient. I pay a little more for my eggs, but paying the extra $2 is worth is because I am supporting a local farm and they are organic. I packed clean meals for the day, and I tried to eat on regular 3 hour intervals. The only thing I need to work on is drinking more water.¬†Day 4 – Monday, 1/28/13
TRAINING –¬†Today’s workout was focused on Shoulders and Abs. J and I did 3 sets of 12, with a minute of rest in between each set. Again it took about 1 hour to complete the full work out. We took supplements before the work out.
NUTRITION¬†– With in 1 hour of waking J and I ate a clean breakfast. Today we had organic local eggs on top of¬†ezekiel bread and organic tomatoes.
After we were finished with our work out, we left the gym and hit up Sweet Green. I will write a post giving you more info on Sweet Green, but if¬†you haven’t been to Sweet Green, you must go asap – it is amazing. Anyway, I had a salad from there that had spinach, kale, beets, carrots, sprouts, broccoli, etc… It was a pretty good size, so I saved some for my next meal. J and I also mixed up¬†our protein shake with another green juice.
We are now done with our work outs for week 1. The next three days are rest days. So we are going to focus on…
But we need the rest more than ever. I haven’t been this sore in a while.
I’m really sore, but it feels really good… You have to be training to understand…
Can’t wait for Phase 1, Week 2, of Livefit!
