My Very Low Key Fast Day

Between the feast day workout and my island exploring, my leg muscles were a little sore this morning.

My hip flexors needed a little extra attention. I think it was all from the mountain climber sprints I did. 

Exercise on fasting days is very low key. Definitely don't want to do anything that will make me hungrier than I already am.

My only "workout" of the day was some planks. 3 sets of 10 knee to elbows. 

My chiropractor is heading to the US for two weeks, so I stopped in for a final adjustment. He has been doing wonders for my knee. Today he showed mrC how to work on my calf muscle. We think the tightness is causing my achiles pain.

Since mrC did not have to work, we rode our bikes to the pool to distract ourselves from fasting. That's right. mrC has been eating the same way as me for the past 4 weeks. It's definitely easier this way. I don't have to watch him eat when I can't! This view certainly helped too!

Breaking fast: chips & salsa, chicken quesadilla, strawberries 
We went to our favorite Mexican restaurant (probably not the best idea).

Full disclosure: I'm pretty sure I'm eating too much after fasting. My goal is to get my hands on a protein shake mixture. It seems to be working for a lot of the members of my group. 

What is your favorite protein shake brand and flavor?
