Week 3 Low Calorie - Rest Day
(I love that I can switch my days when necessary on this program)
My rest day was LHR (laser hair removal) instigated (no sweating for 24-36 hours) which coincides perfectly with needing to run some errands. Rain or shine, out we go. Thank goodness for rain boots and rain slickers. We went from LHR, to lunch, to the GAP, to two groceries and back. All in the (sometimes pouring) rain.
In case you are wondering what the inside of a LHR treatment room looks like, I took a pic yesterday. It's looks scarier than it is and everyone is so friendly and nice.
Week 3 Low Calorie - the meals
I made several trips and also had some Cod on the side.
Dinner - BBQ meatballs and green beans
Snack - popcorn and watermelon
Regular Calorie Day - the workout
Warm up - our normal walk to the fitness center was interrupted by, you guessed it, rain. We took the bus instead and grabbed a treadmill for the warm-up. After walking for 5 minutes, I decided to run. I ran for 10 minutes without intervals and my knee was OK! Interested in my shoes ---> check out my review here.
Strength Training - Supersets. Four Supersets. Arms, legs, legs, arms.
Cool down - 10 minutes walking on the treadmill while mrC finished his workout and then we walked home because it wasn't raining.
So what is a Superset? If you are like me (not a gym rat), then you might not know the term. Directly from my workout: "A superset is performed when two exercises are performed in a row without stopping." The exercises can be opposing muscles or the same muscle groups. Even though there are two sets it is considered one set. A Superset. The purpose of the Superset is to improve performance, build muscle, and burn more fat in less time.
Regular Calorie Day - the meals
broke fast at about 11:15 - 2.5 scrambled eggs with ham and two PB&J rice cakes and watermelon
Lunch - 4 turkey roll ups and red grapes
Dinner - leftover chilaquiles and corn
Snacks - two mini peppermint patties
Here's what I do for fun, wearing a new linen tee that I picked up at GAP yesterday. I don't think it looks so see-through in real life.
Do you like salad bars?
What do you think about Supersets?
