I was a little concerned about my back after hearing the description of the exercises but no problems so far. I took it a little easy today because I'm just getting used to the workout and some of the moves were a little awkward. But still I did work hard and haven't had to pay a price of back pain so you got to love that.
Still working at balancing my diet to take in 2400 calories 50% protien, 30% carbohydrate, and 20% fat. Not that easy to do. I feel like I'm some sort of eating machine and still haven't eaten that much (unless the calculations are off). Getting the proportions right is hard as well. I managed 2124 calories today broken down like this:
Too much fat in some of those meals; I need to switch to chicken and fish instead of turkey sausage and beef (but there were left overs to be used). Whey protein is your friend and I found/came up with two awesome treats:
- Peanut Butter Oatmeal + Whey Protien - Saw this on youtube (and beachbody's recipe book has it) and it was awesome.
- Yogurt + Chocolate Whey Protein + Blackberries - I was running low on energy after pylo and walking 3 miles and also low on protien. So I combined 1/2 cup blackberries, 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt, and 1 scoop chocolate protien powder. Tasted more like chocolate blackberry pudding than I expected.
Eating like this seems almost indecent after the depravation of my previous diet. We shall see what the scales tell me on Saturday.
