Yesterday's Gym Time & Today's Food...

After work yesterday, I went to (the correct) gym for my abs class and cardio. Can I just say... that 15 minute abs class was 15 minutes of sheer hell? Yes. I can say it. It was. BRUTAL! Non-stop abs. Sure it was only 15 minutes, but it was tough! Good thing was that the 15 minutes felt like 3, it went that fast! I wasn't kidding when I said non-stop! I've said it before, I'll say it again... Tabitha is the World's Greatest Trainer/Instructor!

I followed up abs with 30 minutes on the stairmaster... 20 minutes of intervals, 10 minutes steady. From there, I hurriedly cleaned up and headed to the bowling alley. I was very ready for my wrap :-)  I finished my day by not only hitting my goal of 72 oz of water intake, but killing it! I hit a gallon! Woohoo!

Woke early this morning and OH MY SCREAMING ABS!!! Lol! Serious pain! And I had yoga! Do you know that Cobra is nearly impossible with sore abs? It was all I could do to get through class this morning. I am still incredibly sore. I'm chugging water, but lordy I'm sore! Good sore, for sure... it means my hard work is working :-)

Per my promise, I have not gone on fitday (but it's been tough!). My food, however, is right on track.
Chelle's contest prep diet

Contents Breakfast -   Oatmeal w/protein powder, ground flax, cinnamon.  Snack 1 - 4 oz cooked (5 oz pre-cooked) grilled chicken breast and 5 medium size strawberries.  Lunch -   4 oz (5 oz pre-cooked weight) grilled chicken breast, 1 cup steamed zucchini/yellow squash, 1/2 cup of brown rice  Dinner (post workout)  -  5 ounces (6 oz pre-cooked weight) Grilled chicken breast with 2 cups steamed veggies (green). I've added a banana here, since this is my post-workout meal and I need the simple carb (I may swap the banana for a baked sweet potato-4 oz).   I also have 2 mini cucumbers in there for whenever I need food (cucumbers are "free" on my competition diet).  Last Snack -  2 scoops chocolate protein powder mixed with decaf coffee & water.

Here's my snack this morning... yummy! We're out of apples, and I took the last of the strawberries... I don't feel even a tiny bit of guilt :-)

Tomorrow I'm raiding the blackberries. :-)
