Day 1: Recovery
So today I was going to start my P90X but unfortunately I am still recovering from a chest/head cold so I will be taking it easy. Just sticking to biceps and triceps today along with my usual core on the yoga ball. Right now I can't breathe so cardio is a no-go. Maybe when I go to work later I'll feel good enough to jump on the elliptical for 10 min on level 10 resistance to try to make up for it. Can't wait till I start feeling better. I'm also going to try to list what I eat everyday as a nutrition guide as well.
9am: Chicken soup (50 calories)and coffee (50 calories)= 100 calories
12pm:Lean Cuisine Chicken pot stickers (steamed) 270 calories = 370 Calories
Kind Fruit and Nut bar 180 calories = 550 Calories
2pm: Peanut butter and jelly sandwich on honey wheat bread 280 calories = 830 calories
4pm: Snickers Power bar 220 calories = 1050 calories
6pm: Bowl of fruit with Strawberries, Cantaloupe, and pineapple (1 cup each) 180 calories = 1230 calories
9pm: Lean Cuisine shrimp and broccoli 210 calories = 1440 calories
10pm: Sugar free oatmeal and a cup of blueberries 281 = 1721 calories
TOTAL Calorie intake = 1721 Total for today. Kept under that 2000 cal goal!
*Note that I only drink water besides the coffee in the morning and I work everyday from 4-9pm so I miss dinner and just have a 200-250 calorie snack at work around 6:30pm. Then I go home to have a small dinner at 9pm. I will update this as I complete the rest of the day. Also I drink at least a gallon on water a day and no more than 2,000 calories. I use a 32 ounce water bottle and refill it 4 times a day. I try to drink at least half a bottle before every meal and please be careful not to drink too much at once, you could get water intoxication.
