Comments: All exercise was done on an empty stomach. After working out, it was important to me that I eat within an hour, to force my body into an anabolic state. I immediately went home and prepared a protein shake, using reduced fat milk mixed with water, 2 scoops of powder, and 1T of raw oats. I've been eating pretty much every 4 hrs since then. Small meals/snacks. Im trying to keep it clean. Low carbs. High protein and veggies.
Regarding the exercises - my left side of my body is way weaker then my right. I need to research how to go about mending that. I also want to shake up the way I work my abdominals. I have some exercises in mind for when I do my lower body workout on Monday, that will attack other angles of my abs. We shall see.
I fully intend on going to the gym tomorrow, but Im unsure if I want to do the walk to jog program, or something else. Either way, the plan is for 60mins of cardio broken up on at least 2 machines. Maybe 3. God willing.
