SUMMER BODY DAY 2


Blogging about my workout experiences keeps me on track with actually completing the self-made schedule and nutrition. Today I increased my water intake. Usually I will drink one or two cups, but today, I reached 6 cups. Whew, it took a lot, but I did it.

I also tried to make a smoothie but it did not turn out so well so I had to toss it. I had used the wrong yogurt and let's just say it was nothing left but foam in the end. YUCK!

For breakfast and lunch I had water and a granola bar. As a pre-workout snack, I had a little cup of cinnamon flavored applesauce. As I am writing this, I am in the process of making dinner which is Baked Salmon, Rice, and Mixed Veggies.

I listed my workout routine for Sundays/Thursdays here. Now I am going to post publicly the routine I will do for Mondays/Fridays.
