Yep, that's right. Instead, I'm going to update in the Bodybuidling.com forums...so if you go here, please check me out! Would love the extra company My macros from yesterday: Cals: 1832 Fat: 48 Carbs: 175.1 Protein: 170.2 Exercise: Legs day, but it was rushed and sucked. I did do 260 on the leg press though!
Hi everybody! Well the day is finished, and with that said, here are my macros: Cals: 1762 Fat: 50.7 Carbs: 120.5 Protein: 195.6 Highlight of the day: I found roasted eel at my local grocery store, so I put that on top of some udon and had some fun with my taste buds. AIGOHHH MASHISEOYO Exercise: 35 mins on the arc trainer, purely a cardio day.
Good day yesterday. I mostly ate pancakes lol Macros: Cals: 1787 Fat: 51.5 Carbs: 139.9 Protein: 193.7 Exercise: 31 mins on Arc trainer, arms day (my triceps are killing me right now!)
Forgot to upload my macros from yesterday because I was so tired. But here they be: Cals: 1571 Fat: 34.8 Carbs: 92.3 Protein: 183.2 Kinda low, but I didn't exercise yesterday. I worked up a sweat cleaning my house and collapsed into the sofa afterward... I ordered a Taebo ab workout DVD yesterday for $3. Back in college I would do Taebo 2 hours a day and almost had a 6 pack, and that wasn't even the ab-specific portion. So far today I've been doing very good, had a solid workout and the weather is very warm outside, 70F and stuff. I feel thinner too. Think I'm going to start doing HIIT next week!
I seem to look thinner and less "out there", if you know what I mean. Here are my macros for today: Cals: 1893 Fat: 72.5 Carbs: 177 Protein: 201.9 Bit too much fat and protein, but it's not that extreme to get me bent out of shape. Exercise: Hardcore leg day (my legs were burning on the leg press), 15 mins of cardio on the Arc trainer. Plus I went bike riding afterwards for a little over 6 miles. I'm about to faint so I'm going to sleep now.
So I was very...PMSy yesterday which led to some unhealthy food choices. I was doing fine until noon, when I started to get very shaky (was very hungry) and instead of making myself a healthy meal, I decided to say F it and ordered a pizza. I had 5 slices. Miraculously enough, I think my calorie total ended up around my maintenence caloric count so it wasn't too bad lol. Still, I ate 1340 calories worth of pizza which I didn't even ENJOY! It sucked! I'm regretting it already. Next time I get this craving I'm just having a 6'' meatball sub from Subway...tastes better and is more filling (less calories too). Macros from yesterday: Cals: 2235 Fat: 63.35 Carbs: 269.3 Protein: 140 Those carbs were out of control, but otherwise it wasn't too bad. Yesterday I did do 30 minutes on the Arc trainer...would have gone longer but I had the cramps of doom. Spent a couple of hours wallowing in pain. Today I'm going to go do a cardio session in the morning and fit in a leg workout later in the day. My husband also wants to go out biking so there's more cardio for me.
Today became an off day by accident because I wanted to go exercise but my husband said he was hungry. It was 8pm then, and then he wanted me to help him with interview questions (for a possible job opening), and then it was too late to exercise when that was done. I was so annoyed I looked up how to play Am I Evil by Metallica and have been jamming it on my gee-tar ever since. lol
Here are my macros for today:
Kinda screwed this day up too, huh? I kinda needed...like 80 more grams of carbs and more calories. But since I didn't exercise today that's not too bad, right? A slight reduction in calories for a day isn't going to kill my progress.
I downloaded a bunch of Mercyful Fate songs into my MP3 player for tomorrow. Hardcore HIIT and legs tomorrow! I'll have plenty of Megadeth, Metallica, and just about every other 80s thrash band in my arsenal to keep me motivated and focused.
Here are my macros for today: Cals: 1707 Fat: 49.2 Carbs: 139.6 Protein: 172 I didn't consume nearly enough carbs, but at least I tried. Exercise: 10 min warmup on arc trainer, then arms day. It was half interrupted by the fact somebody went off with the dumbbells I was using...long short made short, I was doing hammer curls, put them down to rest for 60 secs, turned around to stare at the clock for a bit, and when I turned around they were gone. And I couldn't find the weights or find any additional weights that were the same (I was doing 15 lb weights). WHAT THE HELL MAN, WHAT THE HELL! WHO DOES THAT?
Did good today. Here are my macros: Total cals: 1707 Total fat: 48.5g Total carbs: 155.9g Total protein: 173.5g Exercise: 26 minutes on Arc trainer I'm not fit enough to do longer cardio sessions or to implement HIIT without barfing in 5 seconds...trying to build my stamina for right now. Can't wait to start doing HIIT again. Going to sleep...(yeah, it's 5am and I'm going to sleep, sue me)
For my own record: Cals: 1898 cals Protein: 162-243g Fats: 36g - 55.24g Carbs: 188.96g
So Tuesday I sort of ate a bit too much: Piece of mackerel wrapped in whole wheat tortilla, stuffed with sprouts (yeah, I love my sprouts) Dinner (we went to the park to grill stuff) - 4 pieces of these low-cal chicken maple/apple flavoured sausages, 2 pieces of sprouted bread, 1 hot dog bun, and a lot of chili (mmm chili dogs) Post workout meal: Another mackerel wrap, Rest of chili (probably 1/3 cup), my hubby's peanut butter-oats-whey protein pancake Moar mealin': Package of long grain rice with one chicken breast, chopped So that was a whole ****load of stuff. I was so full I thought I was going to puke, but I slept it off. I totally kicked it at the gym that night though - did 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training (legs). I can totally feel it right now in my calves, I feel like I'm dying. lol. Today I had this: Meal 1: 2 eggs 1 egg yolk Two pieces of sprouted bread Canned chicken Meal 2: 2 pieces of chicken (lol) Meal 3: 1/2 cup lettuce 1/2 cup sprouts 10 cherry tomatoes Canned tuna Meal 4: Whey protein Milk (1 cup) Meal 5: 2 pieces of chicken 1 potato, sliced I'm honestly so out of it I haven't bothered counting the macros yet, but I'm pretty sure I met my protein intake for today. Not so sure about carb intake. I'm really full from it, although I'm pretty sure that's not enough calories. I don't really feel like puking right now though (seriously, if I have anything else I think I'm going to be sick), so I'll have to call it a day. I guess it sorta evens out what I had on Tuesday, haha. I did 20 minutes of cardio, plus 10 minutes of HIIT (Little Method). HIIT IS TOTALLY HARDCORE! PUMPS YOU UP LIKE CRAZY!

So I couldn't drive to the gym I tried doing some ab exercises but my floor is wood...it'll make you ass bones hurt within seconds. Oh well.
I'm considering doing this diet next month to really get my body fat percentage down. Pretty excited about the diet - no so much about the cardio. And really nervous about putting my body into ketosis. I'm already pretty familiar with how ketosis feels like because I used to go days or weeks without eating when I was anorexic...and it was not fun. Might bring back some bad memories, but I think I'll be okay with a little support from friends and family. My husband is also going to join me, so yeahhh! Can't wait to see my muscles REALLY show up.
Sorry I haven't updated in a couple of days. I ate fine the first day I didn't update, but the day after that was my "cheat day" - I had a margarita, felt woozy, and had an eggroll, "healthy" kung pao chicken from Big Bowl, creme brulee and a peanut buster parfait from Dairy Queen. Mmm, yummy cheat day. Here's what I had today: Meal 1: Luna Bar: Fat: 6g Carbs: 25g Protein: 9g Meal 2: Chicken salad from Trader Joe's: Fat: 2g Carbs: 12g Protein: 28g Meal 3: 2 chicken lime Trader Joe burgers: Fat: 12g Carbs: 6g Protein: 38g 4 slices of Trader Joe's Sprouted wheat bread: Fat: 4g Carbs: 28g Protein: 20g Egg whites (2): Fat: 0.1g Carbs: 0.5g Protein: 7.2g Egg: Fat: 5g Carbs: 0.4g Protein: 6.3g Sprouts: Fat: 0.2g Carbs: 1.3g Protein: 1.3g Meal 4: Luna Bar: Fat: 6g Carbs: 25g Protein: 9g Cottage cheese (1 cup): Fat: 0g Carbs: 10g Protein: 26g Blackberries (3/4 cup): Fat: 0.5g Carbs: 17.8g Protein: 1.3g Meal 5: Plain yogurt, non-fat: Fat: 0g Carbs: 8g Protein: 5.5g Milk: Fat: 0.7g Carbs: 12.3g Protein: 8.7g 1 scoop whey protein: Fat: 2.5g Carbs:3g Protein: 25g Meal 6: 2 pieces of bread: Fat: 2g Carbs: 14g Protein: 10g Total fat: 41g Total carbs: 144g Total protein: 194.3 I went over my carb and protein (that's a first) allowance, but overall it was a good day. And man, those chicken burgers are heaven. Today was strictly cardio, so I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and 11 minutes on the stationary bike. I barely get any burn from the bike and it hurts my knees, so I think I'm going to stop doing that - seems so pointless. I think I'll transition to treadmill walking, perhaps jogging, from now on. Tomorrow is legs and abs day. Missed my abs day this week, so I'm fitting it in then
Meal 1: 3 turkey breast slices: Fat: 1g Carbs: 3g Protein: 10g 6 cherry tomatoes, sliced: Fat: 0g Carbs: 6g Protein: 6g 2 egg white, 1 egg: Fat: 5.1g Carbs: 0.9g Protein: 13.5g 1/4 cup of shredded cheese: Fat: 6g Carbs: 1g Protein: 7g Meal 2: 2 slices of hearty Sara Lee bread: Fat: 3g Carbs: 40g Protein: 10g Sprouts: 2 tbsp of peanut butter, crunchy: Total fat: 16g Carbs: 6g Protein: 7g 5 slices of luncheon meat (ham): Fat: 2.5g Carbs: 0.5g Protein: 5g Meal 3: 2 oz. of vermicelli spaghetti: Fat: 1g Carbs: 42g Protein: 7g 1/2 cup of spaghetti sauce: Fat: 2g Carbs: 10g Protein: 1g 6 cherry tomatoes, sliced: Fat: 0g Carbs: 10g Protein: 0g 1/2 chicken, diced: Fat: 0.8g Carbs: 0g Protein: 11.5g Meal 4: 1 cup milk: Fat: 0.7g Carbs: 12.3g Protein: 8.7g 1/4 cup yogurt, non-fat: Yogurt: Fat: 0g Carbs: 4.75g Protein: 3.25g 1 scoop whey protein: Fat: 2.5g Carbs:3g Protein: 25g Meal 5: 1 slice Sara Lee hearty bread: Fat: 1.5g Carbs: 20g Protein: 5g 1 tbsp peanut butter, crunchy: Total fat: 8g Carbs: 3g Protein: 3.5g I also had one chicken breast and a small salad (no dressing - ugh, I hate dressing) after this because my tummy was literally screaming "WHERE ARE MAH NOM NOMS". Overall, I'm happy with my protein intake, but not with my fat and carb intake. Both were a little bit high. I need to stop eating so much peanut butter and find pasta with lower carbs. The amount of pasta I had for dinner was ridiculously small, which led me to drink that whey shake rather quickly. For exercise, I did a quick 15 minutes on the elliptical at a pretty strenuous pace (listening to Judas Priest makes me go realllly fast) and 20 minutes strengthening my legs. I didn't do squats because my husband wasn't around to help me - I'm still pretty weak, so I do need someone as backup if the exercise is too much for me. Did I mention I can barely LIFT the bar? That's why I mainly stick to the weight machines... embarrassing. My strength will eventually go up, I hope.
