Macros from yesterday

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!

Macro fun

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.

Binge

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.

Off day by accident

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:



Cals:
1686


Fat: 53g


Carbs: 91.6g


Protein: 170.7



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.

SOMEBODY STOLE MY FREAKING DUMBBELLS!

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?

Going to sleep...(yeah, it's 5am and I'm going to sleep, sue me)

Tuesday-Wednesday Eating Log

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!

Didn't get any bloody exercise in because my husband decided he was going to watch MMA with his boss from Sherdog. 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.

Cyclical Ketogenic Diet

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.

Eating Journal: May 14

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.

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 :)

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.
