So, my weekend re-feed may have been a little bit too enthusiastic. Ok, that's an understatement. I'm pretty much disgusted with myself. What started off on Friday morning as a beautifully engineered carb load; high GI morning, heavy leg workout, low GI afternoon (all carbs from sweet potato and oats), with less that 10% of daily calories coming from fat, turned into beer and pizza that evening. Then Saturday morning, figuring "well, I'm already started... why not just make this a cheat weekend, after all, I haven't eaten ANYTHING enjoyable in about a month", I made my way over to the local organic market which stocks the best variety of vegan treats and I stocked up... 4 pack of chocolate soy pudding, a box of Tofutti Cutties, chips, etc... and then I capped off the night with more beer and pizza while watching the Diaz vs Miller fight. Sunday wasn't much better. It was a disaster and I'm not proud of myself.
On Friday morning, coming off of keto, I was 157 lbs. I woke up today at 170 lbs! Now, I know a good chunk of that is glycogen and water; my muscles were starving for carbs and I had two very heavy workout on Friday and Saturday, so I'm sure they sucked up everything that they could handle, but still... I know I did some damage. Bloating aside, my abs are definitely blurry. So much so that I was too self concious to go in the pool and sauna after my morning cardio session. My weight after cardio had dropped to 167.5 lbs, so I was able to sweat out some of the water retention, but still...
Anyways, enough about that, time to move on... this week will be great. The diet plan is nailed down, I'm going to destroy myself in the gym, and I'll fix the damage, and improve from where I was before getting on that flight to Vegas. I want to look good for Sunday Rehab at the Hard Rock pool! AM Cardio SessionTreadmill:
1 hour at a fast walking pace (fast as possible without breaking into a job)
- Avg. speed: 4.1 mph
- Avg. grade: 9.2%
- Distance: 4.04 miles
- Calories: 666
By this point, the sun had come out and it looked like a beautiful day, so I went outside to finish up my session.
Jogged another 1.75 miles at a fairly mellow pace (about 10 mph), burning 168 calories, according to MapMyRun.
So, about 850 calories knocked off before 7:00 am... now time to get ready for work. Tonight is back and biceps day, my favourite!
