Goals: improve my kickboxing, lower my weight, increase endurance
I'm in pretty good shape, though I eat the occasional bit of fast food (I'm trying to cut that out). I do kickboxing 3 or 4 days a week, which is as often as I can get there. The other days I go to the gym and do cardio with some occasional minor weightlifting. When school starts in a couple weeks I'll have to take Wednesdays off, because that's my major workday. Anyway, yesterday:
7:20--1 hour of cardio in the gym, mostly elliptical, some biking. Light-medium effort, wasn't quite awake.
6:30--1 hour of kickboxing, including conditioning (heavy on crunches, push ups, mountain climbers, and up-downs).
skim milk, Tablespoon peanut butter, whole wheat cereal, more skim milk, Panera Bread tuna salad sandwich, Piece french bread, fresh blueberries, Full block chicken flavored ramen, cooked white rice, 8 saltines, still more skim milk
3:00--1 hour of cardio (treadmill, elliptical)
At home, later: conditioning (jump rope, crunches, push ups, etc)
skim milk, Cheerios, 1 Hardee's Big Chicken sandwich, peach, Salad (romaine lettuce, light dressing), 1 scrambled egg with tomato, piece whole wheat toast with butter substitute
Things I need to improve: eat more protein post-workout. Fewer carbs, esp. overly processed ones. Increase vegetable consumption.
Practice: Left hook, switch kick
cool beans, I'm at 195 as well. such an awkward wait to be at for this sport
Totally is. Of course, 5'11" (or slightly over) is pretty tall for a girl anyway, but reach is a nice thing to have.
I started kickboxing pretty recently, and just since I've started I've lost some weight, so hopefully that continues...
Went to kickboxing at 11:15 this morning. While doing up-downs and kickbacks for warm up I landed wrong and popped my hip. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, but I developed stress fractures in both hips a while back. They're fully healed now, and my hips are usually okay...unless I land wrong. So now my left hip is stinging pretty bad. But I promised myself I'd go back to the gym and do some more cardio this afternoon, so I will. I might have to stay on the bike so that I don't irritate it more, though, which sucks.
I think today's going to be an off day. I was at a party last night and so didn't sleep much. I'll eat healthy and probably not go to the gym. I am scheduled to go play ultimate frisbee later, though, so I'll get some exercise in.
I went to the gym and did about an hour of basic (elliptical) cardio at 7 this morning, nothing too hard.
At 6:30 was kickboxing. I didn't do very well because my hips have been bothering me. I did complete the class though. I'm starting to worry a little bit, I really don't want to have to stop training because of a stupid injury. Anyway, kickboxing tonight we worked some combos and did conditioning (mountain climbers, lemon squeezers, and up-downs, among others).
Just kickboxing today. Had the instructor work with my on uppercuts and roll outs, which was good. Did a lot of cardio for warm up, more than usual.
Tbsp peanut butter
Turkey sandwich on whole wheat with mustard, lite mayo, slice provolone, and a tomato slice
Peach smoothie (peach, skim milk, ice, Splenda)
Grilled chicken breast with BBQ sauce
Salad with caesar dressing
Large glass milk
2 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp chocolate chips
After two days in a row of kickboxing, I didn't go to the gym today. Not so much because of that, but because it was about 110 degrees F where I live, and that's enough heat to make me feel pretty sick.
To compensate, I ate less today (I only include drinks with calories on this list, I also drink water):
1 scrambled egg
1 medium tomato
Sarku Teryaki Chicken Combo
(I was at the mall)
10 slices cucumber
Low cal poppyseed dressing
2 slices deli turkey
1 cup blueberries
(about 1200 calories total, which is pretty much a minimum for my age/gender/usual activity level)
That 1,200 calorie day is sorta dangerous if I am not mistaken.
Even for me with my metabolism I stand at 5'11" and weigh in around 160-164...not to sure on the weight as I haven't weighed for a few weeks now.
But for me 1,200 calories is a good sized meal for me.
If I take in 1,200 in a single meal it'll last me about 2-3.5 hours before I start feeling hungry.
I know that I burn at least 300-calories standing still due to how I've built my metabolism. If you figure I could burn 200/hour on average throughout the day that's nearly 5 thousand calories.
With the training you are talking about you should be taking at least 2,500 to 3,000.
If you don't have more than 2 thousand you are going to start having issues with starving the body.

I would wish that it could get as hot here as 110 degrees.
I have a gym in a shed w/ no power that I do heat training in. I shed loads of water-weight out there.
In a single minute drill when it is 90-95 out I have a pool of sweat forming on the floor.
