Upper Fix Extreme
CC Day: 3 Green, 6 Red, 1 Yellow, 3 tsp
5am: Upper fix, man was it hard to get out of bed this morning! It’s only day 2!!! Muscles in my legs and back were pretty tight during warm up. Took getting through the first round for me to feel like I was warm or awake enough to push myself. Used 8’s and 5’s. Used red resistance band for all except the 2nd round of the rear delt flys. Major burn felt in all the muscles during workout. Did some starting and stopping during pushups, rear delts, isolated bicep curls because of the position our legs are in during the move…they were on fire, and tricep dips with leg raised. So, so happy pushups were at the beginning of this workout.
It’s amazing how different your body feels during a workout by what you are feeding it. Just one day back on eating pure clean foods, and I feel SO much better.
Drank 30 oz of water during workout and after while taking my thyroid pill.
Filled up my water bottle with another 30 this time with apple cider vinegar added…I might get to a gallon of water today! Whoop, whoop!
8am: baked chicken breast 1 Red
Drank 10 oz black coffee
10:30am: baked chicken breast 1 Red
Also drinking 10oz of Earl Grey tea…this has to be my favorite teas I drink. Must be the English side coming out of me.
I feel ok energy wise this morning verses yesterday. When I do any big movements I feel my muscles are tired, but I feel I can still do some heavy work if I needed to…kinda nice having a desk job about now though. The hungry feeling is different for me when I’m feeding my body good clean nutrition. I don’t know how to explain it…it’s almost urgent, but it can be made to wait. Definitely a different feeling from a “craving”.
12:00pm: 2 hardboiled eggs, romaine, spinach, string beans, cucumbers, balsamic vinegar 1 Red, 2 Green
Drank 10 oz “Peachy Green” tea from Tazo…I drank my last Earl Grey this morning…that makes me so sad. I have some Earl Grey from Tazo, but it is so bitter…I don’t like it when I’m not adding sweetener to it...must be how Tazo processes theirs verses others.
Felt pretty tired between my 10am meal until lunch, but I started talking with the girls here in the office and woke back up again. I have some meal prepping to do when we get home from Mother’s tonight, but I need to make sure I get a good night’s rest.
2:15pm: Steel cuts oats with 1 tsp coconut oil, 1 tsp cashew butter, and cinnamon 1 Yellow, 2 tsp **This is such a treat right now!! Yummy!**
3:40pm: Half way through my 3rd fill up of my 30 oz bottle. Holy bathroom Batman!
Ate dinner at Mother’s tonight…she made pancakes! And waffles!!! *insert sobs here*
One of my favorites…*more sobbing*
Anyway…I had 2 protein left and 1 veggie so…
5:30pm: 2 eggs scrambled w/ 1 tsp olive oil, and veggies (string beans and orange bell pepper), a baked chicken breast, and my Shakeology just mixed with ice and water. 2 Red, 1 Green , 1 tsp
Prepped Turkey Taco meat when I got home…recipe link here, more chicken…no wonder my husband gets tired chicken, LOL, and some eggs.
Mother make pickled eggs for Easter and she gave me 2 last night…I will eat them tomorrow. Probably more sugar than I want, but I DON’T CARE! It’s pickled eggs…I could eat a whole dozen of those by myself!
Went to bed later than I wanted because of meal prep and because I started watching some You Tube videos…I blame my sister for that one…you know what ones I’m talking about sissy, LOL, they are like potato chips to me…I can’t watch just one!
Bed time was 11pm.
Total water intake = 90 oz…didn’t make it to the gallon, but hey, 90 is great! Looking forward to tomorrow being a regular extreme meal plan and not the cc plan…I miss my fruit.
