You are going to have days like yesterday. My biggest stresser is lack of sleep. The best thing to do is to shrug it off and jump back in today! Your journal looks good already!

Thanks kminutel

I have bounced back today.

The scales didn't show as much damage as i thought - so that is a morale boost.

This morning at 4.45am it was hard to get out of bed and go for my run.

Winter is heading our way and there is a touch of snow on the mountains in the distance.

But I had a surprisingly good work out at the gym afterwards.

Today I also picked up some creatine ...I might start that tomorrow and see what happens.

I also found some of those yummy protein bars that taste like snickers bars today at the gym ...I know they are "good but bad" ...but as I already have a protein bar each day with similar composition, I thought they would be worth adding as a treat ..yum yum.

<font color="red"> 9 May 2003 </font>

<font color="purple">4.45am </font>
It was REALLY hard to get out of bed - I hadn't slept well and it was raining. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] But the rain stopped ...and I got up (scared that if I give in now ...I will be a blob for the rest of the day)...and guess what ... my run was great. Made it back just before it poured again ! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

<font color="purple">6.05am </font>
Went to the gym ...it was closed ...waited with others for it to open but the gym owner had slept in. **** .... [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Waited until 6.30am then went home and got on the exercycle. 30 minutes of biking to heavy metal.A bit of AC/DC in the morning and I was set for the day. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

<font color="purple">Diet </font>
Not bad but need to watch meat intake - my goals are to replace beef with more chicken ...and watch the munchies at the end of the day. Want to keep cals to 2000. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Great my weight has come down a bit ...Maybe Monday I might start the creatine.

<font color="brown">Diet:
2312 cals
40P/32C/28F </font>

At least I have got my carbs back under control. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Yeh - weekend ! I get to sleep in. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

My man and I always walk along the foreshore for an hour before breakfast on Saturdays - then come home to cooked breakfast.

I have low fat bacon (cooked in the microwave), poached egg and a couple of spoonfuls of baked beans. A slice of toast with peanut butter. It is a great cooked breakfast and pretty diet friendly. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

After yesterday's unexpected work out on the exercycle (which has handles to move your arms at the same time) I actually felt pretty tired and had sore arms this morning ...that heavy metal music really makes you work out ! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

G'day Mate. I feel you might get a better sleep by changing your last snack to something with casein in it. Cottage cheese instead of the protein shake. Warm milk gives me a better sleep. There is something in warm milk that makes you snooze better. Read this http://www.abcbodybuilding.com/magazine/zfactor.htm
Cheers. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

<font color="red"> Sunday</font>

Thanks for the feedback guys. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Much appreciated - I might try a bit of cottage cheese at night but the reason for the protein drink is simply that I have a sweet tooth ...and if I close my eyes, I can convince myself that chocolate protein drink with heaps of ice, is as good as icecream.

No pics yet for the site ...maybe one day when I am feeling a bit more braver.

Today was a good workout.

For practising pull ups I suggest doing negative reps. You'll be a pull up machine in no time! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
