To be honest, I’ve not been eating my low carbohydrate diet like usual. I have been eating a calorie restricted, but I haven’t been sticking to my diet the past week. I will go back to it. Also I fell off from working out, which will change. This past week has been a bit hectic. But I’ll figure it out sooner or later. I’ll do this. Now that I am no longer carb-depleted, I am back to about 173-174 lbs. I’m sure I’ll lose 5 lbs easily once I’m carb-depleted again. I think this would be the same is going into a ketosis state, I believe.
Anyway, I’m back to hanging out with my good friend/inspiration once more, and I’ll get back on a better diet. I think I might try taking Metamucil for breakfast, then maybe something small for lunch, then a salad or a protein dinner, and a protein shake. Or perhaps a protein shake before my last meal. Not sure yet. I’m just going to figure it out as I go.
So I know that the elliptical isn’t the same as running outside, but I would still like to say I ran 2 miles in 15 minutes. Which for me, is very good. I was on level 13 resistance.
So yeah, that’s pretty cool for me haha. But I was dead after than. Walking down the stairs afterward was kind of funny because my legs wanted to fall out from under me.
Then there is this selfie. Haha ;P I just had to take it! Hahaha
These were some of my meals on Saturday, my cheat day.
Two big slices of pizza. Pineapple, ham sausage, pepperoni. Also peaches. PEACHES are so sweet and yummy. :) Grilled cheese sandwich on Hawaiian sweet bread. And then I had Musubi, rice, chili rice, french fries, and sushi.
Food I didn’t picture was cookies, a bunch of them. Soft chocolate cookies that were quite tasty. Peanut butter, donut, lemon square, and sodas.
It was pretty tasty. But I think I’m going to try and take it a little more easy on my cheat days. I was stuffing my face the past couple Saturdays, so I’m going to just eat as I go instead of making it a top priority, or I’ll wind up as big as a planet.
End of week 2
Weight: 168.6 lbs
I am super tired today. :<
I could barely hangout as much with my best friends because of my tiredness. They wanted to go swimming but I seriously would have been more of a drag in the water, so I didn’t go. I feel bad though, I really want to hang out with them. :( I feel like I was being a party-pooper by not going in the water, but I didn’t want to make it worse too by going in and hanging my head low.
I also can’t hang out with them tonight, so it’s really a downer. On my cheat day I wish I could just enjoy it and have an easy, relaxing day but unfortunately I’m just exhausted and such. It’s been like that recently. I think I need more sleep. It’s just a shame I can’t do more, there is not enought time in one day.
Finally I am healed from my throat issue. I think it was sinus or something related to my ear canal. But at any rate, I am feeling better about that.
But on the downside, I am actually suffering from a new injury. My main concern now is my back. I think I strained it while doing oblique lifts. I’m not happy about it and it is very painful sometimes. :/
Minor injuries are just cuts on my foot that I got from surfing. Not terrible but they are irritating. And they seem to be taking a while to heal. My left ankle was kind of stiff and clicking too, but hoping it is nothing.
Other than that I’m alright. Really tired all the time as a result of my low-carbohydrate diet and I think my sleeping habits more than anything. I feel like I don’t get enough sleep, but I just don’t have enough hours in the day! Seriously haha. Sore all over too just from working out, but that’s natural indeed. I guess it means I’m doing something right. ;)
I was out with my friend at a Goodwill. He spotted this, so naturally we checked it out and it works perfectly. Way better than our old one so I definitely picked it up. Cost me only $10 or so and it was brand-spanking-new, still in the box even haha. It was a great deal.
As you can see, today I weighed in at 171.0 lbs :P
I’m in a pretty good mood indeed
These are the foods that I was not allowed to eat… It’s no longer my cheat day. That pizza was huge! There was even more pizza too, supreme, pepperoni, cheese, and such. It looked so good.
Then there was the cakes and pies that haunted me. They wanted to be eaten so bad, but unfortunately I had to turn them down. You can see my water in the top corner though haha. Yay for water.
Cheat Day 1
So, this is just one of my many cheat meals on this day. Every Saturday is my cheat day, and it’s wonderful. In this picture I had a bowl of chili rice with cheddar cheese, root beer (!), french fries, and Spam musubi. It was so good. I had a donut this day a little later too. And sandwiches and everything I can think of haha.
I started using the “My Fitness Pal” app on this day, so it thinks I’m a fat son-of-a-gun Haha. I think I recorded eating something like 5000 or 6000 calories or so. It was a grand day.
I look forward to my next cheat day. :)
It’s terrible! I don’t know what it is. My throat hurts even just to swallow. I think it’s affecting my energy too. I feel tired and exhausted all the time. I want it to go away now, as soon as possible! Also it’s only the left side of my throat. I don’t know why D:
On the plus note I made chicken adobo for the first time on my own. It wasn’t a smashing success, but I’d still call it adobo haha. It was good indeed.
I ran out of whey protein today, so in two days, on Friday, I’m planning on getting more. Maybe I’ll look around for some other stuff too. Multivitamins or whatever else there is. I’m going to browse the GNC store.
It’s only day 2 of the diet, but I feel like if I continue to do this diet for a while, I will get very fit. I’m pretty exhausted right now, after today’s morning workout.
I’m pretty much aiming to eat 2-3 eggs in the morning, chicken during the day, and a salad for dinner. Also a protein shake, probably between lunch and dinner to hold me over.`
Weight: 179.0 lbs
This is my weight at the end of the night after eating dinner and cake. It’s sort of a last hurrah, as I am going to try to stick to a diet.
On this diet I am going to have a cheat day once a week. Also I am planning to workout consistently with weights and jog every day that I workout. It’s 5 days working out, 2 days of rest. Yes, one of the rest days is also my cheat day.
My diet is supposed to be low carb diet. My carbs will mainly come from vegetables, a small amount of fruits, and whey. I plan on taking a multivitamin also.
My goal is to put on muscle and get stronger, clean up my diet, and lose fat. I think I can shed down to 170 lbs, maybe less. I suppose we will wait and see.
Did a months worth of healthy food shopping, so I expect to be on this diet for at least one month. Hopefully it lasts longer, and I can get in really good shape. :) haha. Fingers crossed.
Happy Belated Birthday to one of my great inspirations!!! ;D
Video of my workout today. I know my form is kind of bad on some of these, but I’m a work in progress remember? Haha. I think seeing this will help me improve my form. Sorry I had to use a link. It exceeded the limits that Tumblr allows for me to upload videos. I’ll try to keep that in mind for my next video, but that probably won’t be for a while. My flutterkicks are the most ugly indeed. Haha. I’ll work on it I suppose.
