Today's main focus points were: Cardio & CrossFit.
18 May 2020
I'm feeling pretty heavy after yesterdays cheat day, but I felt very good about myself with the progress I have made. Today I'm getting back to it & I'm going to have a very cardio based moring with some CrossFit workouts thrown in sometime this afternoon.
I've planned out my day below:
Muscle Moose Chocolate Moose & Tropical Juice
2 x Marmite on toast
Gammon, Lentils, Quinoa & Spinach
1 Protein Ball (See recipe)
Bulk Powders Protein Pancakes
Chicken, Low Calorie Pasta & Veg
Muscle Moose Mug Cake
2 x Bulk Powders Protein Brownie (See recipe)
Hot Peperami Stick
2 x Violife Cheese
Creatine Monohydrate, BCAAs, Omega-3, Multivitamin, Vitamin C, Vitamin D + Calcium, Vitamin B12, Garlic Extract
Protein: 217g 42% / Carbs: 174g 34% / Fat: 56g 24% / Fibre: 29g / Sugar: 45g = Total Calories: 2,068kcal
This is pretty much percentage wise exactly what I'm aiming for; however, today the calories are on the low side, this was a concious decision as I was feeling very full from yesterday's cheat food still.
For the brownie
You will need: 200g Bulk Powders cacao brownie mix, 2 large eggs, 3tbsp butter, a pinch of salt & 100ml almond milk
For the frosting
You will need: 50g chocolate Muscle Moose & 150ml almond milk
Time to prep: 10 mins / Time to cook 10-12mins / Total time: 20-22mins
Per serving (makes 12): 115cal (Protein 10g, Carb 7g, Fat 4.5g, Fibre 1.5g)
Unfortunately I will not be able to train at gyms for the foreseeable, this is due to COVID-19 & the government are closing all gyms in the interest of us all. Social distancing is very important at this moment in time so I will be following these guidelines and training from home.
This does; however, mean that my training will take a knock and the schedule will have to change, but this is where we find out what we're made of and what we can acheive just with pure will power.
