Day 68 of 84
Metabolic Surge: Round 2, Phase 2, Day 2
This was a no-protein day, so the nutrition plan called for fruit, fruit, and more fruit. I had already done all my preparations the night before, so today was all about enjoying those fruit. It did get a bit monotonous by the evening (and most of the fruit were slightly acidic), but I know this is doing me good, so I’m pushing on.
Though on Metabolic Surge this should be a non-training day to avoid muscle breakdown, I did do Flatten Your Abs training, Level 3, Set B at the gym in the evening after work, since the routine called for a Swiss Ball on three out of the four exercises. I did 3 sets (the maximum) as I had the time, whereas on regular days, I usually did just two sets for each exercise.
The rest of the evening I just prepared my food for the weekend, which now turns to a low-fat nutrition plan. It is going to be a busy weekend for me, with my brother (on his first visit to Australia) and uncle coming up over for the weekend to Brisbane from Sydney to participate in a judo tournament. Of course I will be cheering them on. I also spent a good hour or two finding and booking last-minute accomodation for my brother’s group, as they originally had planned to stay with a friend who was living too far away. I have tried to prepare as much of my meals now as possible so that I won’t be relying on store bought food over the weekend if I can avoid it.
Eat clean, train hard, and expect success!
