Fat X - Day 3 - Wednesday

Fat X Workout
(warm up 5 minutes before each workout)

Day 3
do circuit as many times as you can for 3 minutes: cross jump (5 in each direction), pull ups, (5 reps) dumbbell incline press (pick a weight that would max out at 8-10 reps, do 5 reps), rest 1-2 minutes, repeat 3 times; 5 minute circuit: lunges (3 per leg), spin crunch (1 in each direction)

Spin crunches are eeeeeeeeeevil!!!! Especially on carpet. I don't even know if I can describe them. You get on your back, kind of like you're an upside down turtle, and side-crunch your way around in a circle. Your abs are engaged the whole time because of the rounded turtle position. Ugh. It was not fun on carpet. I managed 7 of those lunge/spin crunch circuits in that final round. In the first set, I did 3 in each round - 20 pound dumbbells for the presses, and I used various grips for my assisted pull ups. Total time - 27:03. Calories burned - 184 (2 Activity Points)

Today was my last day of baking cookies and brownies and bars, and I think I survived the entire ordeal without any major incidents. I'm very pleased with my restraint. Why can't I do that all the time? Tonight, when I really, really wanted a cookie, I went with something healthier. I have no idea what makes today any different than last week or the week before.

banana [1 pt]

omelet w/ onion, green pepper, cheese & salsa, light English muffin w/ sugar-free jam [6 pts]

cookie dough licks [6 pts]

grilled turkey breast & various vegetables w/ light dressing [4 pts]

roasted chicken breast, steamed broccoli & cauliflower w/ EVOO [4 pts]

apple & cottage cheese [3 pts]

Four cups of coffee [1 pt] and 80 ounces of water.

25 points today. 16 weekly and 6 activity points remaining.
