Full Body Workouts, a Hike, the Pool and Regular Calorie Day

I used to love getting my full body workout at TI Fitness in Manchester, NH. Whether it was SurfSet or Bootcamp, I was working every single muscle group on my body. It was awesome.

Now that I'm far, far away from my favorite fitness studio, I've come to appreciate a good video workout. I've tried a million many, but here are a few of my go-tos:

I'm also really loving the Full Body Workout dvd that I received as part of the carb cycling program. The format of switching between cardio and strength reminds me of Bootcamp. That format kicks my butt. See?

Before heading out to hike, I got in one final stretch from my plank challenge.

The weather was pretty much perfect for mountain Monday: cool and dry. I love when I can practically see our apartment building and all the way to Hong Kong.

The best reward for making it to the top of Nanshan is some time poolside. My Hilton Fitness membership expiration is coming up and unless we can find another couple to join as a group (better price per person), I will be pool-less in Shekou. 

What I ate on regular calorie day

Breakfast: scrambled eggs with ham, pb&j rice cake, coffee

Lunch: banana protein pancakes (same recipe as here plus 1 scoop vanilla protein), grapes, water

Dinner: leftover Italian chicken, green beans, salad, Coke Zero

Macros: not happy with my carbs. I need to work on getting to that 50%.

Do you like workout videos?
