Since my dad was over and we were going nuts with house errands, repairs, and what-have-you, I switched the rest day on Sunday with Saturday’s workout.
And I gotta say, I LOVE Kenpo X! It’s a really fun workout, reminds me a lot of the TurboFire workouts I did. I am still sore from Legs and Back on Friday, so it was a good chance to work those muscles. I wore weighted gloves (yes, I’m nuts!) to give the arms some extra resistance.
Been pretty good with the diet, all things considered. Went out to eat with my dad on Saturday night and went for the veggie black bean burger, no bun, with a side salad. I had a couple of fries, but that was it. I also tried my hand at making raw “healthy” vegan brownies tonight, and damn they were tasty. I used Vega chocolate protein mixed in with a bit of water, raw cacao powder, two ripe bananas, slivered almonds, dates, almond butter, and some agave nectar. I based it off of this recipe online.
Otherwise, the usual Vega breakfast smoothie, lean veggie proteins for lunch with some veggies, that sort of thing. I definitely am eating more calories than I used to and surprisingly I am so far at the very least maintaining my weight. I have dropped some inches since I started, however–so this is definitely working. I’m far more concerned with inches than pounds; I’m already at 126 and wouldn’t want to weigh less than 120 anyhow. Goal is fit into rest of clothing (and not much more of it to go) then carve out lean, healthy looking muscle. Nothing crazy.
My dad did compliment me on my appearance and said if I lose any more, he’s feeding me chocolate and fries.
Tomorrow is Chest and Back with ARX. And I’m crazy enough to look forward to it….
