Welp, I've been working out for a little over than a month in the gym now. Doing the Wannabebig Routine #1.
Starting this monday I will start keeping track of how much I'm lifting.
And also add what I'm eating each day.
Meal 1: 5 whole eggs, 10 oz. juice with creatine
Meal 2: Protein Shake
Meal 3: 5 slices of a quesadia (some mexican food), and a bowl of grilled steak soup. Two glasses of unsweetened ice tea.
Meal 4: 1 slice of a quesadia, 1 order of salmon from applebees, and 1 chicken breast covered in honey from applebees.
Meal 5: Protein shake, 6 medium sized bites of Peanut Butter.
So how many calories/protein do you think I consumed today?
lol, right now I'm eating 8 whole eggs at once. 5 is usually the minimum I eat.Originally Posted by Frozenmoses
But it's all good, 650 cals/42-50 g's of protein.
Because I'm currently out of tuna, chicken, milk (I need that for oatmeal).
Incline Dumbell Press
1: 4 bites of cheese, 2 8oz. cups of skim milk
2: 12-15 turkey nuggets, 1 bottled water, 2 tator totts, 1 8oz. cup of skim milk
3: 8 whole eggs, 8oz cup of juice with creatine
4: 1 serving of nitrean
5: 1 can of tuna, 2 8oz. cups of skim milk.
So how does today look? I should've tried to do 10 pounds more on the bench, 5 more on the incline dumbbell press.. and maybe more chinups.
But does my meals today look pretty good? :/
no vegetables, no fruit...
I'd say drink A LOT more water than that.
Quality of calories seems a bit low. Might want to eat a bit more cleanly, but ymmv.
oh, and have some
Ok, today so far I had
Meal 1: 8oz. milk, banana
Meal 2: 2 plain hamburgers (small kind like they serve at fast food restuarants) 5 little tater totts, bottled water, 2 slices of tomatoe, and a few pieces of lettuce.
Meal 3: 24oz. water, canned tuna, banana.
I still have about 3-4 more meals to go today.. but I won't be able to post them til' tomorrow.
And hopefully I can get some pics up soon of my progress so far.
dude, you're 15 years old. you've got to EAT more.
take a look around at some journals and you'll see what I mean. to the extent that you can balance your meals so that your protein and caloric intake remains high but also that the quality of calories is high. basically eat everything in sight, and then eat some more....but also try to eat cleanly.
I try to eat everything in sight.. it's just that all this stuff has a pile of sodium in it, should I be worrying about that? or just worry about the calories.. I don't need to worry about the protein that much, because I make sure I hit 155 or so a day from my tuna, shakes, chicken, and eggs.
Ok, thanks for the fitday link. This is nice.
So I think I'll go make make 2 cups of oatmeal now.. gotta get 1300 more cals in.
In the morning my eating is very low, same with lunch (because it's at school) but when I get home.. then I start eating a lot.

less sodium is usually better for you in the long run. I don't mean salt-free, I mean if you can cut down on the sodium intake, it's good. moderation is key.
have to include more veg and fruit, water, and quality carbs. all protein isn't going to cut it. now I could be wrong and there are a million ways to skin a diet but having an imbalanced diet can't be a good thing.
true, but I didn't eat supper anything yet yesterday.Originally Posted by Frozenmoses
And I had around 1k worth of calories from the tuna helper I ate. Then I drank water like a madman.. then had a banana.
Yesterday's Routine. Leg day.
215 x6 fell down backwards doing my last rep. :P
Straight Legged Deadlifts
Yesterday's meal consisted of
Meal1: 4 egg beaters, glass of milk
Meal2: Extra Hamburger Helper, 2 bottled waters
Meal3: 6 bites of peanut butter, 6 bites of 1x1 inch cheese cubes, 1 hotwing, about 4 glasses of water, Nitrean Protein shake.
Meal4: 1 3/4 cups of oatmeal (with milk added), glass of water, glass of milk.
Meal5: canned tuna, glass of water.
Meal6: 5 whole large eggs, glass of water.
Each glass of water I had was around 8 fl oz.
I ate yesterday til I could barely walk up the stairs to get a shower.. the oatmeal really put a poundin' on me.
There's what I ate today..
But I'm about to eat 1 1/2 cups of oatmeal now.. and a protein shake
so that will be 450 calories to add to that..
And I know I didn't get all them calories right, because I have no clue how much the amount is I'm eating in school, so from my fitday thing.. add around 200-400 more calories to it..
And I should be around 3.5 calories for today.
Seated Dumbell Press
Standing Lateral Raises
close grip bench press
You've got some nice numbers there, keep it up.
16 tablespoons of PB?!

My meals for today.
For now on you'll see it mostly like that.
I never noticed I was getting 50% of my calories from fats.
I'll get some pics up tomorrow also.

F man, im the same age as you, and im bigger but your still stronger, you got a better diet too, just wait till i can start workin out for real agin lol but seriously, dont worry about food quality that much, ur 15 and it look like your metabolism is pretty high, go nuts, just keep away from sugary stuff but besides that i'd say eat everything in sight, clean is good, if u can get it, but if u cant all the time then dont worry- just get those cals and you'll be straight.
6'0 - 176lb

Barbell Rows were lower this week than last week, reason being, last week at that high weight, I wasn't getting it completely up. So I had to drop down some to do them right. :P
Deadlifts dropped 10 pounds though, only because I did 6 instead of 4 like last week. Next week I'll be doing 255 again.
Dumbell Press went up 5 pounds, but they were pretty shakey getting them up there.
Didn't get my crunches in tonight.. I'll move them to this wednesday.
My meals were pretty balanced today.
Feel free to put any input in.
