Fifteen days straight of exercise! 15! That’s right, over two weeks with two hours or more of high-intensity exercise every day. No wonder my body is rebelling and telling me to quit. Between bruised legs, bloody knees and hurting ribs I finally gave in and declared yesterday a day of rest. It was good. I spent an entire day doing nothing at all but hang out with friends, classes and eating food. A rest day is a necessary day every so often, so I’m thinking every Saturday will be one.
Speaking of food! My daily calorie intake is now at 3000 calories a day! That is kinda insane, but I also kinda need it. Probably gonna cut down a bit, aim for 2800 or so instead. I’ve found this great app called Calorie Counter to help me. Very good, very simple to use, has the basic functions you need and nothing flashy add-on bitly bobs. Means counting my calories are now really easy as all I do is scan a barcode or add foods from a previous meal.
Today, however, is a normal day and thus MMA is on the program. 2 hours of gruelling, intense and painful fun. I’m already getting psyched for it 🙂
