Today was great. Mostly because I went to Kroger to buy some stuff to cook for dinner (more on that in a bit) and won a $100 Kroger gift card.
Breakfast was a non-fat yogurt and a banana. I had another banana at 9am, and then lunch was Egg Beaters (equivalent to 4 egg whites). Egg Beaters are pretty good, by the way, and there’s nothing easier.
My workout today was 30 minutes of medium-intensity basketball with my HR around 130, followed by 40 minutes of lower body weight training. I finished up with ten minutes pushing hard on a cycle, and then drank a Muscle Milk afterwards. I see a noticeable difference on the days when I drink Muscle Milk after a workout compared to the days when I don’t; the next day, I’m not NEARLY as sore as I am when I don’t drink Muscle Milk.
For dinner, I made a stir-fry-sorta-thingy with fresh mushrooms, broccoli and tilapia. It was FANTASTIC and I’ll be making it again very, very soon.
I’ll probably drink a Muscle Milk tonight at around 10pm, and that’ll be it for the day.
All told, I feel great. Fantastic. My energy levels are up throughout the entire day (I haven’t taken an afternoon nap in two weeks, which is something I used to do on a daily basis), and I find that I’m sleeping a lot better at night than I used to. I noticed a gigantic difference in my body thus far, and I know it’s not just my mind playing tricks on me because when I started this program, I was wearing a size 38 and now I’m in a size 34.
