Post Day 33 - Yay

June 27, 2014

Meal 1: oatmeal w/ banana in, tea
Meal 2: raisins and nuts (190 cals)
Meal 3: curried chicken and channa
Meal 4: 2 boiled eggs, 1 boiled plantain, 2 tbsp basmati rice, 1 orange, decaf tea

Trained with Nark yesterday, I think I did pretty well! lifting weights is oddly satisfying. I wish I had a bar, and weights, so I could try to lift more often D: Lower back is sore, that's the only thing that hurts today. Surprised that I didn't feel that workout more today, I wasn't sore today in any other parts really :/ progress?!?!

Workout:
Conditioning: Frog Burpees: 100 reps: in sets of 20 -.-

Calves: Standing Calf Raise: 100 reps - in sets of 25

Core: Floor sit-up: 100 reps - 1 set of 30, 1 set of 10, 3 sets of 20, sigh, why isn't my stomach flat yet...When it gets there, I ain't letting it get 'fat' again!

Post Day 34 - Shopping

June 28, 2014

Meal 1: oatmeal w/ banana and 1 scoop Designer Whey mixed in, tea, orange
Meal 2: Chicken thigh and potatoes
Meal 3: Chicken, boiled plantain, orange, oat bran cereal

Went shopping today...swimsuit shopping is always so depressing. I did manage to find one that I quite like. Apparently I'm nowhere near achieving my goals. Cannot wait.

Swapped my cardio for 3 hours of dancing

When faced with an exercise you can't do (for whatever reason) scroll through your list of exercises for that bodypart... and swap a different one in.

...for future reference

Can I eat oatmeal every day, even when its not a weight-training day? That's really the only thing I feel like eating on mornings.
Preferably, no... Particularly given your carb-dependence generally speaking.

Today was not a good day in my opinion. Tomorrow is another day. Better tomorrow!
Acceptable.

Meal 4/Pre-workout bite: handful of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal (would not have had this 'meal' except for the fact that I hadn't eaten in about 6 1/2 hours, meal 3 was lunch)
Meal 5: Baked drumstick, small portion basmati rice, boiled plantain, cup of herbal tea, one cupcake (twas a baby shower gift, no regrets) (also presuming you're going to want an estimate of what 'small' is - think...the inner ring of a roll of masking tape)
No. I would've preferred that you'd turned it down... particularly seeing that you'd just come off a period of not exercising at all, and were trying to get back in the swing of things.

Meal 3: vegetable chowmein, potato salad
Meal 4: Honey Bunches of Oats + Oat Bran cereal mix w/ skimmed milk (pre-workout)
Meal 5: 2 boiled eggs, 1 plantain

I've realised that I find liquid meals very difficult. I do not appreciate the taste, neither do I feel full after. It might be that I dislike the bits that are in it (I like clear/smooth beverages). Also, protein will never be tasty, and it also seems to spoil/go off very quickly. Still trying to use the protein powder cause I'm never getting enough protein. I dislike liquid meals highly. I don't know how y'all get it done. Lemme use my teeth and bite some meat.
Eating meat is always a viable option.

It is, actually, the preferred option.

It was a good session. I think you aren't sore however, because we didn't go all out. In parts, you didn't believe that you could go heavier, though I said that I believed that you could.

And, you could have.

So, I'll work on slipping more stuff in.

What's going on with all these carbs sources and servings?

What's the rationale?

I'm not giving that up if I can't have rice and pasta and sweets etc. Guess I won't be having oranges at the same time as plantain then, or oat bran. Oatbran is so yummy though.

Not in the best of moods lately. Very stressed. Not supposed to be stressed. Working on it before my body starts to act up. Very very very tired of everything.

Oatbran is yummy. Plantain is yummy. Bread is yummy. Cake is yummy.

There are no yucky carbs.

And that's fine and all, if you pick *one* yummy carb (per meal) and stick to the recommended allotment.

That's all I'm asking.

Not 3. Not 4. Not equal, excessive servings. I'm neither asking that you starve yourself, nor deprive yourself.

I am however asking that you execute some discipline/structure.

Doesn't require stressing, or anything of the sort.

Just requires realising that you can't have everything you want/like all at once.

Being stressed over this process is a choice.

Choose not to stress.

Post Day 44 - I've Fallen...

July 8, 2014

I'm back but...
Help! I've fallen and I can't get up!

All I want is for Nark to whup my ass with a killer workout on Thursday so I would learn my lesson cause...

Okay look:
I had a very hectic week starting July 1, which was last Tuesday which was very restraining concerning time and body. a) the week was hectic because I was preparing for our annual dance show and b) not wanting to hurt myself prior to said show, and c) chest inflammation acting up due to stress from work (I keep forgetting that I have chronic fatigue as part of it so...that doesn't always go well with a regular 8 hour job)

So now its supposed to be week two of GVT when week 1 barely even scratched the surface cause I was never home to workout. So I'd decided that I'd scrap last week as week 1 and start over the GVT phase but considering the fact that it is Tuesday and my ass is addicted to carbs and has not been home early enough to workout and get enough rest to not be tired at work at 8:30am...idk. I'll be working out from tomorrow definitely, but my mouth is my constantly a source of irritation.
I have a love of carbs like no other. one of my fms symptoms is carb craving, but just because that's an aspect of something I deal with does't mean I can just shovel carbs in when I feel like. Help, I've fallen...

In short, your girl needs to find some discipline when it comes to dieting.

So this week is officially GVT week 1. Tomorrow is cardio day. Victoria is back.
