Day 31

Despite the workout and other forms of exercise I got today, I declared this day to be lazy day. Since, I planned on doing a whole lot of nothing today, I didn’t even eat as much as I usually do. I’ve been really busy lately and just wanna truly take a load off. Of course, I will still be keeping it healthy. I got up and got everything I needed to do today done within the first three hours of being awake. I spent the rest of the day being a couch potato. I know its sounds really lazy, but its a nice change of pace and I can feel more rested to get back into the swing of things. Speaking of being well rested, I’ve noticed I get more rest out of the same amount of sleep than I used. I guess I can chalk that up to the healthier lifestyle, I’ve been living for the past month. Well, here’s what I ate today.

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Lunch: 6oz cottage cheese, 1 cup of salad, 1 orange, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Dinner: 6oz chicken, 8oz of cucumber slices, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Day 28

Super Bowl Sunday! Yay! Made it through the day without messing it up by eating stuff I wasn’t supposed to. Woot! Even found out I lost a few pounds over the past week. Even better! There. I had to get that out of my system. Back to the regular stuff. Still doing the weird work schedule, which is making doing my works hard to do. I was only able to get in half of what I usually do. Hopefully, it goes back to normal next week. Here’s what I ate today.

Breakfast: 3oz cheddar cheese. 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: 1ox cheddar cheese, 1 protein drink

Day 27

Weird day, today. I get done working my shift and my body feels like I haven’t moved in days. Definitely weird. I tried ate something different today. Hope it works out. Tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday. Which means all kinds of the most unhealthiest foods will be served while I’m at work tomorrow. Luckily, I’m nowhere near where the food is prepared so, it won’t be as tempting as it sounds. Plus, I’ll be home when the games is on and did not accept any invitations for Super Bowl parties. So tomorrow should be fine. Well, enough worrying. Here’s what I ate today.

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 slice of 45 calorie wheat bread, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: 1 oz cheddar cheese, 1 protein drink

Lunch: 2 eggs, 1 cup of salad, 1 orange, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: 2oz of cashews - unsalted or seasoned, just plain roasted.

Dinner: 60z chicken, 1 cup mixed vegetables (green onions, spinach leaves, broccoli), 1 serving of

Melba Toast, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink.

Day 26

Been very busy today. Like a 16 hour day at work busy. I actually had to get up a 4:30 this morning. I ate 2 snacks to tide me over until lunch because it was 8 hours apart. I even had to skip my workout for today because of all the work I had to do. Now, I’m ready for bed. But, before I do…here’s what I ate today.

Breakfast:2 eggs, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: 1oz cheddar cheese, 1 protein drink

Snack: 2oz chicken, 1 protein drink

Dinner: 6oz chicken, 1 cup of salad, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Day 25

So, I tried out my new workout today. I’m not in as much pain as I was when I tested it out on Monday, but I have to say that I’m pretty satisfied with it. In fact, my workout took so long that I had to finish up 2 exercises at a later time to day. As I get used to it, it won’t take too much time any more. Still have that I’m about to get sick feeling. I thinkĀ  it could turn out to be a sore throat. Here’s hoping I fight it off and keep from getting sick.Anyway, Here’s what I ate today.

Today, I got home early to try a diet friendly recipe. It was marinated chicken. I made the marinade from seasonings and water. The seasonings were garlic, oregano, black pepper, and Mrs. Dash. I marinaded the chicken for a day. Crushed up some Melba Toast and sprinkled it on top. Bake it. It came out really good and it covered 2 parts of my dinner (protein and carb).

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink.

Snack: 1oz cheddar cheese, 1 protein drink

Lunch: 6 oz chicken, 1 cup of salad, 1 apple, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: 1 oz cheddar cheese

Dinner: 6oz chicken, 1 cup of broccoli, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Day 24

For eating healthy for the past week and a half, I’m actually starting to feel sick. Maybe, its my body finally getting used to the fact that I don’t eat anything like chips and cookies anymore. No problem, I’ll just get through being sick much faster. At least, I think it will be faster because of all the recent health choices I made. I’ll have to look that up later. So, here’s what I ate today.

Breakfast: 6oz chicken, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: 1oz cheddar cheese, 1 protein drink

Lunch: 2 eggs, 1 cup of salad, 1 apple, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: 1oz cheddar cheese, 1 protein drink

Dinner: 3oz cheddar cheese, 1 cup of salad, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Day 23

My test workout fro yesterday has got me sore today. I haven’t felt this sore since I first started working out. “No pain, no gain”, I guess. Tried cottage cheese for the first time today. It wasn’t that bad. It reminded me of dipping dots, but more on the weird side. At least it gives me another option for what I can eat. I went out and got some pork tenderloin to help mix up the meats I can eat also. Anything to keep things fresh. Here’s what I ate today.

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 slice of 45 calorie wheat bread, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: 20z chicken, 1 protein drink

Lunch: 6oz cottage cheese, 1 cup of lettuce, 4 strawberries, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: 2oz chicken, 1 protein drink

Dinner: 5oz pork tenderloin, 1 cup broccoli, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Day 22

What a day! I’m still tired from testing out my new workout for the month of February. The treadmill and the exercise bike broke down at work. There is a nordic track looking device but I have not been able to last more than a couple of minutes on it for the past two weeks. So, my middle of the day workout will be more about strength training and cardio. Besides, I think I do a decent amount of walking throughout the day. Here what the new workout is going to be.

Leg press: 70lbs - 10 sets of 10

Leg extensions: 70lbs - 10 sets of 10

Sitting Ab Crunches: 70 lbs - 10 sets of 10

Pec Fly’s: 70 lbs - 10 sets of 10

Incline chest press: 70 lbs - 5 sets of 10

My arms still have some work to do to catch up with everything else. Plus, I had to really struggle to get to 50 incline chest presses done. So, I think 50 will be a good limit to shoot for 5 days a week. I can actually do the 100 leg presses without stopping. I’m still thinking about increase the weight some more to get a better workout from it.

Sweet! Today’s the day I finally get to start the diet I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now. It’s been a good day. The protein drinks do help because I ate breakfast earlier than usual in order to get some stuff done before work today and it was a little over 7 hours until I had lunch today. If this was a week ago, water would not have been enough to keep the hunger at bay. Ah yes, protein drinks. Drinks with flavor. I miss drinks with flavor. I get those wonderslim fruit flavored protein drinks from dietdirect.com and it taste like I’m drinking Kool-aid. I had to say that after all the water I’ve been drinking lately. Anywhoo, here’s what I ate today.

Breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 slice of 45 calorie wheat bread, 1 protein drink, 2 fish oil pills.

Snack: 1oz cheddar cheese, 1 protein drink

Lunch: 6oz chicken, 1 cup of salad, 4 strawberries, 1 protein drink, 2 fish oil pills

Snack: 2oz chicken

Dinner: 3oz cheddar cheese, 1 cup of salad, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 1 protein drink, 2 fish oil pills

Snack: (because I stayed up that late) 1oz cheddar cheese.

Weight: 319.8 - a little progress, but better than none at all.

Day 21

Too busy to post yesterday. It was a good day, though. Here’s what I ate yesterday.

Breakfast: 3 oz of cheese (was running late to work)

Snack: 1 oz cheese

Lunch: 3 oz of cheese, 1 cup of salad, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 1/2 apple

Snack: 1 boiled egg

Dinner: 6oz of chicken, 1 cup of salad, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 1/2 apple

Today, I am still working on what new exercises I am going to do for February. I am also think of how much weight to increase for my strength training. I’ll figure it out soon. I’m glad I put in the effort to get to this point in my diet so far. Getting used to eating healthy has not been anywhere near as painful as it was the last time I tried to go on a diet. Not once did I take any painkillers for the headaches. Starting tomorrow, I will be doing the diet I wanted to do. Again, it’s based on one of the diets from the Metabolic Research Center. Here’s the details of it:

Breakfast: protein, carb, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: protein, 1 protein drink

Lunch: protein, vegetable, fruit, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

Snack: protein, 1 protein drink

Dinner: protein, vegetable, carb, 2 fish oil pills, 1 protein drink

I’ll be doing this diet from now on. I will also be adding fish oil pills and protein drinks to the diet to help with my weight loss. Plus the protein drinks really help keep from getting hungry because it sucks having to wait longer when you’re hungry and leads to straying off the diet. Here’s to my success so far and for the future! Here’s what I ate for today:

Breakfast: 2 eggs, cauliflower and celery, 1 orange, 1 slice of 45 calorie wheat toast

Snack: 1 oz cheddar cheese

Lunch: 2 eggs, 1 cup of salad, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 1/2 apple

Snack: 1oz of cheddar cheese

Dinner: 3oz of cheddar cheese, 1 cup of salad, 1 serving of Melba Toast, 1/2 apple.
