Rise and Shine 4.05am Friday 15th of January 2016
I got up and jump on the scale and weighed myself at 84.5kg. I am delighted, so, so happy. I am where I wanted to be, all the sacrifices and feeling hungry and miserable have paid off.
2 Daily workouts: BJJ and Spinning.
5-6.30am BJJ, drills and sparring: The sparring was starting from closed guard, we alternated, I am TIRED.
Spin 6.45-7.30am: heavy legs, REST IS NEEDED
Breakfast: A black coffee and some almonds.
Post workout: around 9.15am, 3 scrambled eggs, peanut butter on toast a banana and a white coffee at home with my boys.
Lunch: chickpeas and a white coffee.
Snack: cottage cheese with a spoon of honey and some flaxseeds and a white coffee.
Dinner: Quinoa, broccoli and grilled (fatty) duck, an apple, a tea and half a square of dark chocolate.
Drinks: 1 black, 3 white coffees, 1 milk tea and 2-2.5 liters of water.
I am exhausted, I need a break and will rest tomorrow.
Day 19 conclusions:
At a nutritional level, I start to find the formula, a breakfast, a snack or lunch and another snack. I try to keep it around 1500cal to be able to enjoy a heavy 1000 cal dinner or at least being able to eat without counting.
At a physical and mental level, I am reaching the limits. I cannot train more as I will burnout and mentally I am ready to fight.
Tomorrow is my last day off and Sunday my last strength session and spin class, from then on I will go easier and drop the intensity.
