no need to be sorry for the questions. i try to shut up about myself bc i feel like i could talk about this stuff all day long. haha.
i eat egg whites with chopped ham or turkey in am mostly (this morning i wanted something sweet, so i did lite pears drained with cottage cheese), chicken or turkey breast or ham as meat for lunch. i eat special k protein bars (peanut butter and chocolate yum) for when i want a piece of chocolate and if i come up short, i will have a scoop of body fortress peanut butter and chocolate protein shake with water. (i buy it at walmart. cheap and tasty).
i am currently eating about 2100 kcal a day and the carbs and fats fall where they may. typically i eat about 175 grams of carbs, but some days i eat more and some less. i just try to get 130 of protein a day. that's my big goal. stay under calorie limit and hit the protein goal. i am training to be a powerlifter, but i want to drop a couple weight classes.
16. 223.4 - 1,827 cals with 116 grams protein - conditioning day - 2 hours
17. 222.8 - 2,294 cals with 127 grams protein - deadlifts
18. 222.4 - 1,984 cals with 186 grams protein - bench press (with chains! so much fun)
i am on a roll because my TOM started and i tend to drop at this time if i am on plan. it will slow up and i will hop on the scale every day and then curse it by next week.
