My core is gonna be sore

13 Jul

Just another Monday..woke up at 4:30 and ate my eggs and oats, got ready and took my lunch to work. Nothing exciting at work, it went by fast though because I was super busy. I ate my normal boca burger salad for one meal and chicken and yams for the next.

I came home and got ready for the gym…I knew it would be a long night at the gym since its Legs and Abs day. Drank my pre workout meal Isolate protein, oats and an apple. I decided to try a new class today CORE!! It kicked A$$. It was alot of balance and whole core and abs were on fire! After I went and killed my quads..they were JELLO!!! To top it off I had to do 30 mins on the stepmill. I finished 30 mins with my HR at 155 the time flew by because I started reading a new book Transformation by Bill Phillips. Pretty good read so far

I finished the workout with 15 mins of stretching and foam rolling. Check out my calorie burn!!

I always keep my post workout meal with me..I refuel right after I am done working out so my muscles get the protein and so I can restore glycogen. I always have protein Isolate, oats and an apple. People always give me weird looks as I am in the parking lot downing my food.

For dinner I was lazy so just had 3 oz of chicken and munched on some raw cabbage a broccoli.

    Wow girl, you really did burn a lot of calories. I have to watch myself on that some days because I will go to a gym class in the morning and then run that evening and realize that I burned about 1,000 calories in exercise alone. I run almost every week night for my marathon training, and I should probably not go to a class that day, but my gym classes are so awesome, I can’t stand to pass them up! It is so necessary to refuel afterwards with burning that many calories in a day,

      I agree!! Usually on my leg day I burn the most calories..I make sure I fuel up before and after my workouts with the proper amount of proteins and carbs.

    Great blog, is Bill Phillips book worth buying? Is it similar to Body for Life programme?

      I am only on Chapter three..he doesn’t go in depth on diets and workouts it is more of a whole life transformation and making you a better you…if that makes sense

    I guess Monday was mandatory leg and ab day huh? That’s what I did as well. Though, I did NOT burn that many calories. Holy smokes.
