Default Bombflower\'s lifting & nutrition journal

So I've finally decided to start one of these. I hope it will help me progress further and help me keep my diet in check. (hopefully)

So today... I feel weak, tired, and a little work out. All because I'm sick and I haven't had much to eat today. So I feel like crap.

I don't have any stats up yet, but hopefully I will soon.

Due to April's downfall in both diet and exercise, I estimate my BF% to be around 18% now, was 15% towards the beginning of April.

I'll get the rest of my stuff up later.

I'm hoping that tomorrow I can get back to the gym, if I'm feeling well enough.

Comments, questions, support & stuff is always welcome!

Go hard! And make sure your taking vitamin C. And try to force some nutrients down, just a little at a time. It's the fastest way to get better.

Yeah, my vitamin intake has been very poor since April. I think I've only taken my multi vit. and vit. c once in about a month or so.

Some tea and chicken soap will really help. But pop Vitamin C like crazy, read JW's story in the nutrition section for some motivation.

I made up a new Fitday account earlier. I decided to ditch my old one and start over.

If anyone is interested: http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJ...t%5Fyr%5Fbombs

Just ignore today's food intake posted. I decided not to post everything else I ate today, which is why everything looks low. I figured since I'm sick, and wasn't eating properly, it wasn't worth it.

Another day of no gym time. This depresses me. I'm still recovering from my sinus infection.

I'm just running into problems with eating eggs. I eat them every morning, but they're becoming hard to get down. Sometimes I have to stop eating them because I start to become nausious. Same thing with cottage cheese and some of the meatless products I eat. It's kind of annoying since I need to get my protien from somewhere, and the eggs and cottage cheese are a big part of it for my first and second meals.

Tomorrow is Thursday, which is probably when I'll get back into the gym. I've taken my vitamins today, and I think I'll take another vitamin c (1000mg) before bed.

Sorry there isn't anything on my training here right now.

I'll post my food intake tonight.

It's sort of lacking today because I haven't been able to finish a few of my meals as I said above, with them making me nausious and everything.

I think it's time to start shopping for other foods that are just as good for me.

Today was pretty good.

Here's what I've ate so far:

Breakfast (meal 1)
1/4 C Oatmeal
1/2 C FF Cottage Cheese
3 Egg Whites
1 Egg Beater
1 Piece Healthy Life Wheat Bread

Lunch (meal 2)
2.5 CS Mixed Salad Greebs
2 Tbsp Kraft FF Italian Dressing
1/2 C Water Packed Tuna
2 Pieces Healthy Life Wheat Bread
1 Small Apple

Meal 3
1 C Green Beans
1 Tbsp Smucker Natty Pb
1 Large Apple

Dinner (meal 4)
Chicken Marsala
3/4 C Broccoli

(please ignore the two apples from today. I had to eat them because I couldn't eat the rest of my tuna at lunch [was making me gag just to look at it] and when I came home, I wasn't looking forward to eating any meatless crap either, so I figured an apple before my cardio session wouldn't kill me...)

-----------------------
That's so far, and right now it's 7:30 P.M., I just got done with dinner. The chicken Marsala had 55 grams of protien (supposedly). I got it from http://lowfatlifestyle.com/ and you can view it here http://lowfatlifestyle.com/entrees/e...%20marsala.htm

I used Splenda instead of sugar and slightly less salt, along with low-sodium tomato sauce (well, the can said no added salt, anyways).

This also brings me to the good news!

1) I got back to the gym today (finally!). However, I only did a cardio session because I had 45 minutes, so that times was dedicated to cardio. I wouldn't have had time for a quality lifting session anyways. So lifting will resume on Saturday.

2) I decided to start eating chicken again! (probably obvious from the chicken marsala I ate for dinner...) I can't believe I went over a year without it! I started craving a huge pice of fried chicken in school today. How much I miss fried chicken...

3) I got a 3lb tub of chocolate whey protien from GNC (GNC brand...) It was $25, and I wasn't sure what other brands to look for, and the label read decently. But the guy also said if I don't like it I can bring it back.

Does anyone know BETTER brands of protien I can get for around the same price range? I know there has to be something better out there... maybe even cheaper?

I'm going to "start" the 13-week program today, sort-of...

I decided to start working with the exercises and repamounts before I get into the power strips and static sets and stuff. This way I can be familiar with the routine and not possibly sabbotage the first few weeks that I'll actually be using the program in full.

I'm sure this will help mein the long run.

So, I'm off to make breakfast right now and then in an hour or two, off to the gym to try out the 13-week.

Breakfast should be good:
1/4 c. oatmeal
5 egg whites
2 egg beaters
1 c. spinach
(P:45 / C:23 / F:3 / CALS:304)

And I've already figured out my post-workout shake:
2 scoops choc whey
1 tbsp. natty pb
(P:44 / C:14 / F:13 / CALS:360)

Along with my third meal of the day:
5 OZ. Skinless, boneless, chicken breast
1/2 c. Spinach
(P:42 / C:3 / F:10 / CALS:268)

P:60% / C:13% / F:27%

I think I'll be able to even it out after my third meal. As long as I can bring the fat% down to around 20% and the carbs up a little more to around 25-30%, I should be fine.
