Training and grub

I loved the way my body felt the next day after the workout below. And I also loved sweating like a pig and struggling through out the workout! You see, if it’s not challenging you, it is not changing you!

STRENGTH: 10REPS 3SETS
WEIGHTED SIT UP
HANG KNEE RAISES
CABLE WOOD CHOP

20REPS 3SETS: (45-60SEC BREAK AFTER EACH SET)

  • PRESS-UPS WITH ALTERNATE SINGLE-ARM DUMBBELL ROW
  • SINGLE-ARM OVERHEAD ALTERNATING LUNGES
  • SELF-SUPPORTED DUMBBELL ROW
  • DUMBBELL THRUSTERS
  • HEAVY DUMBBELL SIDE BEND

My goal is to lose 5 – 8 kilos, post wedding I put on a little weight from just laying and stuffing my gob with anything… Funny how 1 – 2 weeks of careless food consumption results in a vast body change. I felt sluggish and of course there was the slight weight gain. But no regrets, these things always happen in life!

I now have my protein in the morning, be it a shake or eggs or porridge… Healthy snacks through out the day, healthy oils i.e Olive oil, coconut oil, flax seeds. Carbs are added to my meals towards the end of the day i.e. for dinner. But I’m always consuming protein, from fish to chicken to legumes. Eating more greens too, spinach and kale and cabbage.

I purchased a new protein powder: Vanilla super-foods which also contains greens. It’s a plant based protein by Amazing Grass – Click to see

Last night I made delicious honey baked chicken. I hope you guys try it and like it.
