Day 54 of 84
Metabolic Surge: Round 1, Phase 1, Day 5
As I mentioned in my post yesterday, my boss asked me and his direct reports to join him for a beer at a restaurant/bar after work today. I was able to stick to just one light beer sipped over an hour and a half as I had planned. Though I was offered a second one twice, my second drink was a glass of water. Meal #5 coincided with this get-together, so I made my two preceding meals a bit larger in expectation of having not much to eat with the beer. For tapas, my officemates ordered the Filipino traditional sizzling sisig with egg, which is a bit high in fat. To balance it out, I suggested sizzling garlic mushrooms for our second dish. My other meals were according to the low-carb plan, so I think I did not do too badly on the nutrition front overall.
After our office get-together, I proceeded to the gym and did my Lactic Acid Training for shoulders, triceps, and legs. I was able to push harder that I did last time, especially with the leg presses. I really felt the burn there. I think it’s because the leg muscles are some of the largest on the body, so it takes a while for the lactic acid to build up, and it also takes a long time to clear. I finished my workout by doing Level 2 Flatten Your Abs training.
Keep focused on your goals, and don’t let the bumps on the road derail you. Be unstoppable!
