I was gone the week before last. And then I had intentions of being back. But for some reason (cough*sucky internet* cough) it didn’t happen last week either.
Well, not gone, I was at home. Or at the gym. Kind of the same thing these days.
LiveFit has taken over my life. But I’ll get to that.
Let me give you a quick run down:
Jax is still a cutie but is becoming a bit of a mischief.
We went to dinner and I ordered this fabulous jalapeno tilapia. Too bad my body is much too used to my super clean eating diet and it was too rich.
I had the Cesar salad because it was my cheat day.
I made an amazing egg white salad with fat free greek yogurt, onion powder and s&p.
Jax gets a bath about once a week. He always manages to roll in, er, the yard.
Chicken burger (with mustard and ketchup added later), sauteed spinach and acorn squash.
We went to Joe’s crab shack last weekend. I heart crab. My husband always eats faster than me.
Crab is the only exception.
As for LiveFit.
This is the other reason I haven’t been blogging. Week 9 was tough. And I was sick for two of the workouts. Yes.
As in last week was a 9 out of 10 (only because I only wanted to puke— but didn’t).
This week has been easier. I recover quicker, cursing working set + active rest (do the first exercise, and then instead of resting, perform the active-rest movement (for example, jump rope). Immediately repeat the first exercise. As in 2 exercises, back to back, three times in a row.) Superset + active rest combo? (two exercises back to back, then an active rest of mountian climbers or burpees or some other form of torture and repeated 3 times without stopping– theoretically.)
Atleast I can say I’m learning quite a lot. And becoming a little tougher… I’d like to think.
I’d say it’s been 8 out of 10, if only because I started the carb cycling portion which is a huge pain in the butt. Counting calories is mind numbing enough, but low carb days make me just plain stupid.
I can gladly add fitness model to a list of careers I never want.
I’m actually surprised I’ve survived 3 low carb days. It’s probably because I have no tempting carbs (read: bread) in the house at the moment. The apple cinnamon protein bars are actually quite good!
