Day 1 Weight: 163.2lbs / BMI: 30.8 / MUSC: 35.6% / FAT: 37.5%
Day 5 Weight: 150.6lbs / BMI: 28.4 / MUSC: 37.7% / FAT: 33.7%
So the past few days have been fairly easy. Day 2-3 I was really just taking it easy… the most exercise/movement I had was to take my dogs out (2 pugs so there isn't any "real" walking going on) & just getting up to get water/bathroom.
I started working again on Monday (Day4) noting a 3lb weight loss from Monday-Tuesday. Mind you I work from home this week, which constitutes drafting from a desk. Because I really want to maximize toxin & weight loss I wanted to try & keep up the 3lb a day weight loss I decided to slowly increase my exercise, per what my body can handle.
Tuesday: Muscle foam roller for my lower body (massages the muscles as well as reducing cellulite)….Stretching, & "Insanity Abs"---which shockingly was much easier than normal. I know I have previously mentioned vitamins, which I am still taking….. I wanted to add my "workout" supplements. Because I want to keep as much muscle as possible I take B4… which is a fat burner that helps preserve muscle (helps your body find fat rather than muscle)-- Unfortunately B4 contains caffeine. This is something I recommend to avoid, but at the time I wasn't willing to spend the extra money. The other supplement I take is CLA which is something I recommend to take every day. It contains essential fatty acids which will also help in fat loss.
Today (Wednesday): 4 sets of 30s planks with 10lbs
200 heel touches (obliques)
4 sets of 20 leg crosses with 5lbs ea. ankle
4 sets of 10 lat leg raises with 5lbs ea. ankle
4 sets of 10 tricep dips with 10lbs
4 sets of plie squats with 10lbs + alb dumbbell
Honestly today I pushed myself pretty close to the limit, noting that some may be able to do more, while some may be able to do less, its all about the muscle you already have, & the amount of weight you are carrying. (interesting discovery…. it is easier for me to workout at night, rather than in the morning)
Since starting work I have noted the "shakes" in the morning…. so i opt for some warm low sodium chicken broth, which is very helpful (I usually consume between 1/4-1/2c of broth). The shakes are also something you need to listen to your body about. Because I am working out i KNOW its because of electrolyte loss & use of energy, however the shakes can also be from a surplus of toxins in the body which would mean you need to consume a good amount of water and flush it form your system. After you have done that and still have the shakes I would then recommend the chicken broth.
*** Wednesday Day 5--- noted the start of acne. This can happen to anyone wether you have a crystal clear complexion or not. This means I am at the stage where I am starting to flush toxins through my skin. To combat this I like to take a HOT bath with epsom salt. The salt helps to further pull the toxins from your skin while in the bath. Using an exfoliating fresh/loofa int he shower is good as well, it will keep the rest of your body from breaking out.
Feel Free to leave questions! I always find it works best/better when you try this with a buddy, especially someone who has already completed multiple fasts so I'm always here!
