So today was supposed to be rest day. Bah...!!! No needed to get out of the house and decided to do a cardio workout. Today I did my workout at Goodlife Fountain Gate. Got there nice and early 8.30- 9 (can't remember exactly what time) and did 20 mins on the stepper and 40mins walking on the treadmill - keeping my heartrate between 118 bpm and 128bpm. Supposed to be that fat burning zone for me so that is what I do. Don't know if it makes much of a difference but will stick at it.
I actually burned about 400 cals in the workout - forgot to turn my monitor off when I had finished so ended up with over 500cals in total. Not bad seeing my weights workouts and cardio combined don't normally work out to be that much.
So nutrition. Today I had breakfast when I got home. A smoothie. Maxines Vanilla Burn Protein powder, 1 serve super greens, 1/2 cup frozen strawberries, 2 tablespoons steel cut oats, water. Was really nice. Might have to have that occasionally during the challenge.
One of my goals for the challenge is to not having any cheat meals - or deviations from the meal plan. I am actually getting a dietitian to write up a proper meal plan for me using the Maxines products. The gorgeous Holly Baxter - whom I did my PT course with and is also won 3 Gold Medal at the World Championships in Dubai in Fitness Model novice and open. She is also an Alpha Cuts and Maxines sponsored Athlete. She is gorgeous. If you don't know who she is look her up on Facebook. Anyway - she is doing a plan for me for my goals - I have only told her my goals thus far. Might tell you all along the Maxines Challenge journey but it is kinda dorky.
