Yesterday I did treadmill, battle ropes and stair master for a 30 minute cardio workout. Earlier in the week I had 2 sessions with Blake where we worked upper body one day and lower body the next. In-between days I did cardio workouts.
It's Wednesday and I've worked out Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday so today I'm taking a rest day from the gym. I did walk 2.75 miles in my neighborhood first thing this morning though. And will walk another 1-1.5 miles before the day is done. That will give me well over 10,000 steps and 450-500 calories burned.
Yesterday I ate 992 calories, burned 446 in exercise leaving a 654 calorie deficit. Keeping in mind that it takes 3500 calories to burn a pound of fat, I try to have at least a 500 calorie deficit each day.
Looking back through my food log I see I've eaten too much fat and carbs over the past several days. Which is maybe ok since I worked out each day.
Today being a rest day I will be more mindful of the macros and eat more protein less fat and carbs.
Thank you for reading my blog.
