Day 5 of the Boot Camp Challenge. This day was longer & a bit more difficult but I completed it. I also decided to try a new cardio program from the Fitness channel on cable.
I haven’t been very hungry all day long but I know that I need to eat to keep my metabolism going. Tonight I am going to make these post workout granola bars.
And in case you are wondering, today is the 8th day in a row that I work out. Hoo-aah!
Weighed in this morning & I lost 1.1 pounds for a total loss of 93.1. Wheee! I actually weighed in on Friday morning and I had lost 2 pounds so I was disappointed to see that the number had lowered. This week I did track points rather than calories and looking at my food log I did eat more that the week before. I even went over my points in two days. This week I will be tracking calories and working out and see how I do. But right now my gut tells me to take a break from WW and stick to counting calories.
Speaking of working out, I decided that I am going to see how many days in a row I can work out. I have worked out every day since Thursday so I am already on a 5 day streak. This week I did the second day of the Boot Camp Challenge workout (18 days total) and did some kettlebell exercises.
Two-Arm Kettlebell Swing:
One-Arm Kettlebell Snatch:
Front Barbell Squat:
I will also commit to 4 days of either walking at least 5k or cardio. My arms and thighs are BURNING but it’s a good kind of burn. I looked at the day 2 program and thought it looked easy. I was wrong. I could barely lift the blender glass after I made my smoothie as my arms are in pain.
