Day #2 The Raw Food Muscle Fitness Challenge

September 2, 2010
Today was a successful day, I did manage to eat completely raw food today AND had a great workout! I made many meals today. I made Pad Thai, Barbeque Chips, Curry Cauliflower and some dressings. I am COMPLETELY feeling so much energy! I love it:)

Day #2 Foods consumed:
Buckwheat cereal with apple and 1 T sunflower seeds and 1 T pumpkin seeds, a dash of cinnamon and stevia.

After Workout: Green Smoothie with 1 banana, apple, berries, Raw Protein, sunflower sprouts, and spinach

Snack: Dehydrated Kamut Bread with AB and 1/2 banana

Lunch: Pad Thai, Beets with Almond Chili Sauce and Snow Peas with a few Dehydrated BBQ chips

Snack: Another bowl of Buckwheat cereal with apple and 1 T sunflower seeds and 1 T pumpkin seeds, a dash of cinnamon and stevia.

Dinner: Collard Wraps with Curry Cauliflower and Almond Chili Sauce onion and tomatoes I feel like I overate, but I am so proud of myself, I didn’t over indulge in raw pies:)!!!

Day #2 Workout:
Santiago’s Circuit
Each circuit:
Straight leg dead lifts and bent over rows (20 lbs. dumbbells)
Butt kicks and Tricep Kickouts (10 lbs.)
Squats and Bicep Curl (15 lbs for 5 sets, 20 lbs for 1 set)
Pushups (I averaged about 15 per circuit, but my last circuit I did 20!)
Front raises and Side raises (10 lbs)

All exercises were done for 30 seconds with 15 seconds in between for a total of 6 circuits. Then I walked later on with Jason. We walked for 1 hour at the park while Sabby played football.

My plan is to do legs tomorrow.
My average calories were about 2,300.

I know it should probably be somewhat lower, but I am working on it.

Another fun day is coming tomorrow. I am sure I will make some new raw goodies. I have buckwheat soaking and mung beans.

This morning I decided to have Sabby take my photos. He took 3. My measurements are as follows:

Chest: 41 1/2 inches
Waist: 36 inches YIKES, Dr. Oz would not be happy:(
Left Arm: 14 inches
Hips: 40 inches
Left Leg: 26 inches

Just so everyone knows, I contemplated posting these at all, but I figured, maybe it would help me be strict with my food choices. Working out has always been super fun for me, it’s the food that has always hindered my results.
