Gee Helen, that doesn’t sound good at all. I am actually feeling a lot better today, I’m not so exhausted and my chest is much looser. Not coughing as much – just feeling more normal. Thank you for the heads upon the Blackberry Bold – I look forward to being able to say “I love it”.
Eating my post workout meal of MRM Low Carb chocolate with frozen raspberries, natural yogurt and Sultana Bran on top. Yummo. Yes, I actually trained today. I did a full body workout as I mentioned in yesterday’s post. It went like so:
DB Squats 3 x 10
BB Staight Leg Deadlift 3 x 10
Sumo Deadlift 3 x 10
Bulgarian Split Squat 3 x 10 (no added weight)
BB Bench Press 2 x 10
Lat Pulldown 2 x 10
BB Curl 2 x 10
Rope Pushdown 2 x 10
DB Lateral Raise 1 x 10
My weights for the most part were very moderate – I didn’t want to have to breathe too heavily otherwise it would make me cough! I think I will have a bit of a nap now, then get to work on my new web page. Tonight I think I will go for a walk – it’s really hot today but this evening will be just lovely.
Tomorrow I have a big day of phone chats scheduled. I will also train and so must decide on a new program to do before I go.
I cleaned my desk up this morning, wasn’t planned, just did it! I had this tray full of papers that had built up over time (talking years) and so have gotten rid of all that. Now I have an empty tray next to my computer – that is unil my Big Pud jumped up on my desk and backed himself into it. I’m sure he thinks I put it there just for him and that it’s his very special bed.
Tip for the Day:
I had a client email me her diet for critiquing and one thing that stood out to me was that she is consuming fat immediately after weight training. This defeats the purpose of the post workout shake – the idea of consuming quickly digestable protein (whey protien shake) immediately after a workout is so that the protein will get to the muscles as quickly as possible to aid recovery. By adding fat you are slowing down digestion time. So, no fat after a workout.
