Fitness Specter 20 – A Week in the Life

FitnessSpecter300

I decided to try a little experiment. What this is will be a hypothetical account of what a week of my life will be in 2015. I am writing this ahead of time, so I may already be doing this. Again, just a little peek at what I think might work.

Monday morning: wake up at 0500, do 50 burpees, shower and eat a bowl of Special K with almond milk. Have a protein shake. For lunch, eat a chicken breast and some rice. Get home from work, do 25 burpees and lift (comprised of back and biceps lifting from home). Have a protein shake. Do 25 more burpees and shower.

Tuesday morning: wake up at 0500, do 50 burpees, shower and eat a bowl of Special K with almond milk. Have a protein shake. For lunch, eat a chicken breast and some rice. Get home from work, do 25 burpees and lift (comprised of chest and triceps lifting from home). Have a protein shake. Do 25 more burpees and shower.

Wednesday morning: wake up at 0500 and run a mile (if it’s freezing outside, then I run in place or run around the room), shower and eat a bowl of Special K with almond milk. Have a protein shake. For lunch, eat an orange, a banana, and a chicken salad. Get home from work, do leg work (leg day, exercises that can be done from home to work the legs). Run a mile (again, as before, in place or around a room if not outside). Have a protein shake.

Thursday morning: wake up at 0500 and run a mile (you know the drill), shower and eat a bowl of Special K with almond milk. Have a protein shake. For lunch, eat a chicken breast with some rice and broccoli (you thought I was just copying and pasting?). Get home from work and do 50 burpees before lifting (another back and biceps day). Have a protein shake.

Friday morning: wake up at 0500 and do 25 burpees, shower and eat a bowl of Special K with almond milk. Have a protein shake. For lunch, eat a chicken breast with some rice and broccoli. Get home from work and run a mile before lifting (another chest and triceps day). Have a protein shake.

Saturday morning: wake up at 0700 and do 50 burpees. Leg day again, do it right after the burpees in the morning before a bowl of Special K with almond milk and a protein shake. For lunch, I can eat whatever I want… probably a sandwich from Erbert & Gerbert’s, Subway, or some other healthy little ditty that isn’t “too” cheat meal. Near the end of the day, run a mile and have a protein shake.

Sunday: rest. Eat healthy all day but maybe include some eggs and meat for breakfast instead of cereal.

I don’t know if I’d include having more than burpees or running for cardio if I’m not going to a gym. I could include some stairs but there is a single staircase I have to work with away from a gym and that would be a lot of up and down. I may use them, though.

So, what do you think? I think it sounds like I’ll be getting fit.

Lift it.
