Weight Loss Challenge – Day 5 Of 39

Orange Theory Fitness


This is a documentation of day 5 of 39 (I update the morning after a day is complete)

Friday, May 5, 2017 – Day 5
OTF at 6:30 am and burned 892 calories.  Now here’s the thing:  I don’t work out in the mornings simply because I like my sleep.  Case in point:  class started at 6:30, my time to leave the house was 6:00, so I set the alarm for 5 am.  I ended up waking up at 4:24 am because I was scared I’d over sleep!!!!!  That part sucked but the workout was right up my alley.  My break through happened after I realized that rowing is now a better warmup than the treadmill – probably because my fitness is higher.  Then we got to some intervals and I was a happy big daddy!!!!  They were basically power intervals – short intensity / short recovery – just what my body is designed for, I could have done those all day.  In the evening I took Aliya to her birthday dinner at Epic Chop House and was worried about eating.  I ended up having 12 oz Filet, some asparagus and ate some bread – turns out it wasn’t hard at all.

I had 4 meals each in the 480 calorie range.
My last meal was at Epic and I figure it was close to 700 calories.
For the day I burned 3,086 calories.
I took in 2,514 calories.
The net deficit was 573 calories.
I slept 4:25
I drank 147 oz of water.
Bottom line – Today was a win.
