Another shake day on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet.
I wasn’t really looking forward to today – it might be a good way to break a fast but it certainly isn’t the most fun.
Now don’t get me wrong, I know there are a ton of things you can do in a smoothie, but on my first shake day I found I couldn’t get past the third one before needing “real” food.
So, today my mission was to drink the 5 shakes as prescribed in the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet without wavering.
And that’s exactly what I did! Pretty happy about that.
I drank my last shake around 8:30 pm. Figured since it was fairly late in the evening I would be able to drink that and be good to go for the day.
BTW, if you’re wondering what kind of protein powder I use in my shakes and smoothies the best I’ve found is at Prograde Nutrition.
But for some reason, Scott and I decided to watch this week’s episode of our favorite crime fighting team, Bones and we didn’t start it until well after 10 pm.
Well, I got to about the middle of the episode and I really needed something to eat. For the first time in days, I was actually hungry – physically hungry, it wasn’t just in my head.
So, I made eggs. Figured it would satisfy me just enough so I could fall asleep with doing minimal damage. So, I’m not going to beat myself up over it.
Today’s workout on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet was another strength workout.
I started doing the workout today with the same level of enthusiasm as I have for the last 7 days. However, today felt very different.
I managed to get through the entire first circuit, or about half, of the workout – took me about 20 minutes.
Right from the beginning I was sore. A lot of times once you get moving the soreness goes away and you can do the entire workout without any discomfort.
But today felt different. My glutes hurt, my quads hurt, my back hurt. My knee even started to hurt.
So, I made the executive decision that after 7 straight days with 40+ minutes of weight training and some sort of combo of cardio and HIIT, that I needed to stop and let my body have some down time.
That’s what I was hearing from my muscles – they didn’t want me to do anymore work today. I was pretty disappointed when I made the decision – I really wanted to follow the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet as written to be able to provide my best opinion and review in the end.
But in the end, it was for the best.
As for energy levels, I had plenty all throughout the day – no issues at all there.
