Day 11 of Operation Shape Up
Day 11 of my operation Shape Up was Saturday. Saturday is football day and makes it impossible to 100% adhere to the plan of a 16 hour fast and a 8 hour eating window. I have typically been fasting from 9 pm to 1 pm, but this 1 pm is just 2 hours before my football match kicks off. My second meal would normally be at 4 or 5 pm, which is still during the game. I thereofre stuck to the plan as best as possible. I did fast but for not as long and rather than opting for 3 square meals, had smaller snacks scattered across the eating wiondow.
7 .30 am: Juice Plus+ Premium Plus capsulesm, 3 x Onmega 3 capsules, 10 grams of BCAA's and electrolytes in a drink.
8.30 am: Personal Training Client 1
9.30 am: Personal Training Client 2
10.30 am: Pwersonal Training Client 3
11.45 am: Meal One and a Tuna Salad from CF3 cafe in Cardiff
Football was in Cirencester so set off with the boys to the game.
2 pm: Juice Plus+ Shape Bar
3.45 pm: Half Time during football match where I had a small handful of Nuts and half a bannana
5.45 pm: Post Game I had a shake containing: 2 scoops of Juice Plus+ Complete, 500 ml of rice milk, a table spoon of peanut butter and 45 grams of porridge oats
We drew the game 2.2 and I played for the last 30 minutes. So I didn't get through anywhere near as much running as a typical game where I play 90 minutes.
6 pm: The food after the game was fantastic, I had a large bowl of beef chillie and white rice. Pretty full after that!!
After the game I drove to my parents in Abercynon to see them, where I had my final meal of the day.
8.30 pm: Chicken breast, jacket potato, pea's and salad.
Day Summary: Stauurdays are really tough to stay to the 8 hour fasting period. We start warming up for football at 2.15 pm and don't finish until 6 pm. You also have to leave several hours for any substantial food to digest. All you can do is aim to stick to the principles as best as possible. I did that today.
