Day #7 The Raw Food Muscle Fitness Challenge

September 7, 2010

I have been up since 4:30 am this morning. I fell asleep extra early last night, so I decided to wake up early this morning and start cleaning. I have been cleaning all day and finally sat down this evening at Sabby’s Football Practice. I did make it to the gym today and I it was a great workout! I did the circuit that I did last week and kept about the same weight for all exercises. I didn’t feel as tired this time. I was able to keep up with the rest periods and perform almost 15 reps of all exercises.

Well, once again my food choices are not the best for calorie portions. I have been mostly raw for about a week now, which is a great accomplishment, but I would like consume less calories. It is so difficult, especially when I am so used to eating a certain amount of food. I figure that I am making progress though. I feel stronger and my head seems pretty clear.

Day #7 Food Choices:
Buckwheat cereal with Almond milk and 1 T sunflower seeds and 1 T pumpkin seeds with berries

Same meal again

Mung bean salad with Corn Tortillas

Banana Smoothie and Rice Protein and AB

Carrot, Beet, Celery, Red Pepper with Cantaloupe Smoothie (Cuke, Cantaloupe and Tons of Ice)

As you can see they are good choices, but too many calories.
~2300 calories

Day #7 Exercise:
Warm up on elliptical for 10 minutes
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 3 sets, 20 lbs for 3 sets)
Pushups (I averaged about 15 per circuit)
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. I did 30 minutes on the elliptical

I figure I will probably do legs tomorrow or back. Those seem to be my biggest problem areas. I am looking for a new circuit to do too. Next week I will probably go back to my workout that I have been doing for the last month. I miss it already.
