Ah what a nice day, soreness in the upper body, soreness in the legs. The P90X effect in full force. Also, here is a shout out to Mateo, keep pushing play in Spain 🙂
Also, I have updated post Day01 to include my super sexy semi nude pictures against my better judgement but in the hope to give some more credibilithy to this blog I decided to include them (to be fair I completly forgot to add them initially to post 01, doh). Enjoy, I guess 😛
Well then, let’s take a look at what I did today. Click on the thumbnails to get to my Flickr account and see them pictures in a higher resolution.
1 creatine pill
3 slices turkey bacon
1 chicken scramble
6 oz fresh squeezed juice
how to prepare:
– 8 egg whites, 3 ounces chicken breast (cooked), 3 ounces fat free parmesan cheese, 2 teaspoons fresh basil
– beat egg whites
chicken scramble: done
I used the chicken bacon and the chicken tossed it in the pan with som garlic, stirred in some egg whites, added some low fat mozzarella cheese and called it a day. I don’t have any fruit juices here, so I just sliced up some rawberries (lol) instead. I proceeded to arrange the food in a highly entertaining manner (gigidy). Food was a walk off homerun in terms of taste.
1 protein bar
since i don’t have protein bars I substitute it with 1 granola bar and an apple.
1 chicken salad
3 cups salad greens
2 cups vegetable soup
2 tbsp protein powder
how to prepare:
– 8 ounces chicken, 2-1/2 ounces low fat mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon dijon mustard, 2-1/2 tablespoon green onions, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon fresh dill, 1/2 cup celery
– poach chicken
– let all the ingredients intermingle with each other
chicken salad: done
I don’t do mayonnaise, so what I used instead was 1.5 ounces of low calorie ceasar dressing, I also skopped the mustard and I don’t own dill. I also tossed the salad (lol) and threw it in the bowl with the rest of the ingredients, I finished it off with a spritz of lime juice. I used the last bit of my red pepper soup which was still hot as ever. Felt like a ball to the face really.
After some sharing of the food, there was a consensus, and it was agreed upon that this was one fantastic salad.
4 oz soy nuts
I used 2 oz of pistachios and 2 oz of cashew nuts instead of soy nuts. Why, because I couldn’t find soy nuts in our local store. There I just blamed Price Choppers.
8 oz halibut
3 tbsp pesto sauce
1 cup wild rice
1 cup zuchini
how to prepare:
– buy pesto sauce
pesto sauce: done
I don’t have halibut in my local market so I used sole, any white fish will do, I am not being racist here. Also, you can see that I had my protein/water shake at diner not at lunch. The nutrition guide tells you how to make your own sauces, including pesto but I just bought a jar of pesto sauce, and instead of 3 tablespoons I used 3 teaspoons, totally sufficient to drizzle that over the zucchini, fish and rice. According to my partner (female) it was really good. 🙂
Before going to bed:
1 creatine pill
Day 03 means it’s shoulders and arms day followed by Ab Ripper X. For this you will need a chair, weights or a resistance band, water and a good attitude. You will work on your shoulders and arms, and please make sure to watch out for your form. Quality is more important than quantity. No pullups (yay) no pushups (more yay).
Here is how it works, there are 4 sets plus 1 bonus set, each set consists of 3 excercises that will target your guns, that means biceps, triceps and shoulders. Each set will be repeated, that means 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 4, 5, 6, etc. Here is a list of the excersises in proper order:
- Alternating Shoulder Press
- In and Out Bicep Curls
- Two Arm Tricep Kickback
- Deep Swimmer’s Press
- Full Supination Concentration Curl
- Chair Dip
- Upright Row
- Static Arm Curl
- Flip Grip Twist Tricep Kickback
- Seated Two Angle Shoulder Fly
- Crouching Cohen Curl
- Lying Down Tricep Extension
- In and Out Straight Arm Shoulder Fly
- Congdon Curl
- Side Tri Rise
This is what will make your arms super sexy like zis:
You round Day 03 off with a sweet little treat called Ab Ripper X.
Here is the low down, it’s freaking hard, and it’s super discouraging, when Tony and his gang pump out 25 reps of various excercises but you know, in about 4 to 6 weeks you will be able to compete with them. Here is a list of the excersises in proper order:
In and Outs
Hip Rock and Raise
Pulse-ups/Heels to Heaven
V-up roll ups
Yeah it’s a real delicious workout. No pain no gain, you want to get into the best shape of your life then you have to put in the effort. ‘I hate it, but I love it’.
