I can’t quite believe it… but I was on fire 🔥 this morning when it came to the final part of the workout – what’s called ‘CASH OUT’.
4am 1/2 a 3egg white, 4 strawberries 🍓, 1/4 cup oatmeal pancake and lemon 🍋 water.
4:30am WOD AIR was all about running. My knee is still not fully motionable so I didn’t actually push too hard on the runs. I was supposed to be doing them at full pelt but I went may be 65-70%. Our lovely coach left off the CASH OUT until we had all completed the run. Cunning, as you may know seeing what’s to be accomplished is a psychological battle and if 💯 burpees was on the board from the outset people would have held back on the running.
So when it came to the burpees I was looking at achieving at least 10 burpees per minute. Essentially we worked in pairs and swapped every minute until we accumulated 100 💯 so essentially it’s 50 each unless your partner does more than you within their minute. Yep my partner on average did more than me but I was ecstatic that I managed more than 10 each round and on the last round I did 15!!!! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 – thank you 😊 lol. Between us we finished in 6 mins and 15 secs. Personally I think that’s pretty impressive. I’ve also learnt that when doing burpees it’s more efficient to use a wide stance as opposed to bringing the knees up under your chest – if you know what I mean. Sorry I’m just not one of those people who get other people to take pictures of me working out so I can post them online. And I can’t take a selfie whilst doing burpees so you’ll just have to do a few and visualise what I mean… may be try a hundred …. 😂 .
6:30am the 2nd half of the pancake was eaten post workout.
9:30am – it’s a haze…. like I don’t know what happened, something took over me like an out of body experience – no more like a possession- but I was force fed Easter bun n cheese! It’s a Jamaican 🇯🇲 thing. I didn’t eat the cheese but the bun tasted sooo good. I didn’t want any but my assistant came and brought me some right after we had a long conversation about meal plans and nutrition and she’s looking to lose 20lbs and I’m on a mission to get to 160lbs…. yada yada, yada!!! Talk is cheap right.
11am 2cups of kale and spinach, passion fruit and protein shake.
2pm 2 cups salad 🥗 with 1/4 cup of quinoa and 4 oz chicken
3:30pm green tea
5pm 1/4 cup of grapes 🍇 and 10 raw almonds
7:30pm roasted pumpkin 🎃 squash, carrots 🥕 and chickpeas with a little saltfish. It’s a bit late for me to be eating but starving. I should have had some chicken and broccoli. Oh well.
Whilst I drink literally about 20oz if not more of green tea at a time part of me thinks I need more plain water. I drink water when training, but I just prefer warm drinks than cold unless it’s alcoholic. I don’t drink soft drinks like coke or even juices – but prefer coconut water over plain water of course. But still green tea is practically water. That’s ok isn’t it? I don’t add anything other than lemon and sometimes even fresh ginger.
So I updated the theme of this blog – I hope it’s 👌🏾- even if it isn’t – tough lol 😂
