Get Ripped: Day 3

Get Ripped: Day 3

The Getting Ripped series has been getting some nice traction on Instagram. I never thought people would respond the way they have been doing. I can’t believe it is already day 3! I woke up, and was happy that it was only core training for today. It isn’t that it is easy, but it has been a while since I actually felt my core muscles feel sore. I welcome the muscle soreness. I have found that my appetite is decreasing somewhat. Maybe it isn’t so much as appetite is decreasing as it is I am not allowing myself to eat junk foods. When junk foods aren’t an option, even some fruits and vegetables are still not enticing. This either means I am not hungry or I have a serious junk food addition.


The food

My food options dropped a bit since yesterday. I attempted a salad, but this salad had been in and out of the fridge on day one and day 2. When I finally sat down to eat it, most of the vegetables had started to wilt and liquefy. Not a good look for a salad. I ended up putting it in the compost bin. I felt hungry again at about 11:50 PM, but I just ignored it, and went back to sleep.

  • Post workout drink: Missed the chlorella mix. I was running late for a meeting, and spent too much time chilling after the workout.
  • Breakfast: Smoothie
  • Snack: 3 clementines
  • Snack: herbal tea (chamomile and elderberry tea)
  • Lunch: Tried to eat a salad, but skipped it.
  • Snack: Nothing
  • Dinner: Fish and mixed vegetables (broccoli and carrots)
  • Water: Load up… At least 10 cups


The Workout

This workout as it is written didn’t really make me break a sweat. I modified it so that I increased number of rounds to 3, and I doubled everything. That is, if it called for 20 of something, I did 40 of it. After the workout, I went for a run. I did 1.5 miles. The run wasn’t especially difficult, but when I hit the first half mile mark, I wondered why did I go out for a run. After the run I didn’t regret it, so it worked out in the end I guess.

Hope to see you back here for Day 4!
