Needing the motivation of others, as well as the criticism as I go along, I have decided to make one of these. Mainly gonna focus on the dieting, because I feel my training is good. Gotta cut the body fat on me though.

12% body fat (all on my abs) :(

Here are today's goods.

Workout: Chest Day. Excellent. Went up in weight all all exercises. Go me! :)


Got a late start because I felt like sleeping in an extra hour instead of eating and showering before class. Poor classmates :)

8:30am - Protein Bar
10:30am - 6 egg beaters, 1/2c Oats, 1c Strawberries
2:30pm (Post Workout) - Powerade w/ 5g creatine
3:00pm - 3 grilled chicken tenderloins, 8oz green beans, 8oz corn
5:00pm - 2 slices wheat bread, 2 tbsp peanut butter, 2c skim milk
8:00pm - 1c cottage cheese, blueberries, 1oz cashews
11:00pm - flax oil, 3 turkey slices

Totals for the day:
Calories: 1921
Fat: 62
Carb: 178
Protein: 180

Don't feel I did that well today. Need to up the carbs and fat a bit. Need to get to Super Target to get some more real eggs, but that stupid snowstorm messed up those plans :(

Are you taking a protein shake?
I didnt see on in there.

You should replace that powerade with one. You need the protein after your workout.

I used to take them and mix a banana in with it to make it not taste so bad, but I cut out the banana since it was a simple carb, and found other ways to get my daily protein needs.

Bad day, but most of the day was spent stuck in snow eating what was left in the bare fridge. Gotta get food tomorrow when I can actually get my car out of the parking lot.

Goodnight all. Pray my hip joint isnt too messed up.
