MONDAY-8/18/03 DAY 1--UPPERBODY

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Success is a journey, not a destination." -Ben Sweetland

TODAY'S MINDSET GOALS__________________________________

5 things I can do between now and this time tomorrow that will help me reach my 12 week goals

1. Get my body fat measured-also see if Molly can do a 9 point measurement. (will settle for 3 tho)
ACTUAL: SET BACK ALREADY [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]k. . . i'm starting to get pissed. they told me Molly is in a meeting until possibly 3 or 4. and she won't beable to test that late. It looks like i'll have to wait until Friday or Saturday. I really wanted it done before my start date. I guess i didn't plan as well as I should have.

2. Cook &amp; Pack tomorrow's meals.
ACTUAL: [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Done!

3. Stretch before and after my upper body workout
ACTUAL: Done!

4. Drink a gallon of water (i believe doin this, along with the stretching, a week before starting will help with leg cramps... I get those bad in my hamstrings.)
ACTUAL: [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] i only got 5 24 oz. bottles down

5. Revise Meal plan following some suggestions by Fuzzy, Checkin, Tuf &amp; Nozzle--thanx guys.
b]ACTUAL: well im makin my grocery list, im gonna try the oat pancakes. I got a head of lettuce for Tuesday. to replace whatever bad carb i had scheduled there--this week modifying as i go. I think ill get better at this meal planning thing.[/b]

DAILY REVIEW____________________________________________
THREE THINGS I DID WELL TODAY THAT WILL HELP PREPARE FOR MY CHALLENGE
1. got in 5 meals-should been 6, but i got a late start at it.

<font color="red">ACTUAL:as planned!</font>


GENERAL NOTES:
1:36pm--well already may plan is for the day. It's 1pm and I just rolled out of bed. The reason I slept late, is that Molly won't be able to measure me till 2:30pm. And she insists that i dont eat or drink anything or workout before I have it done. So, i stayed up late, so i could sleep till almost time to be there. Otherwise, i would have a killer hunger headache by the time i got to the gym.

I'm packing a protein shake to drink as soon as i get measured and plan to start lifting asap. I dont know how im gonna get six meals in from 3p-1am tho. Maybe it'll just be five today.

Fix up your diet you have way too many simple carbs you want more fiber and complex carbs. My advice is that you do no have tortillas nor pasta, no fruits. Here is what i eat for carbs: oatmeal, brown rice, 100% whole wheat bread, yams(not sweet potatos), cracked wheat(wheeta cereal).

I don't see a problem with the tortillas and pasta. They are whole wheat. How are they any different than whole wheat bread? As long as it's just a little bit here and there and not at every meal, I, personally, think it's fine. But, then again, I'm a lot newer at this than you, Checkin, so I very well could be wrong.

Can you explain why 100% whole wheat pasta and tortillas are bad on a cut?

Most tortillas are not 100% whole wheat and neither is pasta. Wheat Pasat and Wheat tortillas have some wheat flour added to them to give them the flavor and the brown color, the main ingredient is still bleached wheat flour which is raises insulin. Second of all of these are processed carbs and processed carbs tend to raise insulin in some people. So its better to stick to whole foods on a cut. No processed garabage.

Honestly you dont even need that many revisions btw if you like pencakes here is what i do. I take 4 egg whites 1/2 cup of oatmeal with 1/4 cup of fat free milk ( appproximately 4 tablespoons of milk) add some vanilla and equal mix it and make pancakes out of it. Tastes really really good. Also try to stay away from processed foods or they will kill you. In the second half of the day try to get green veggies such as brocolli and salad. Get some fat in your diet, without EFA's you would not be able to burn fat. Also get rid any fruit from your diet and take a multivitamin. YOu would be surprised how much you will save on fruit. Before bed no cottage cheese with pinable add equal or splenda if you have to. For breakfast Oatmeal is a must. You need to have at most 3 meals with complex carbs, everything else should come from fiberous veggies. Please do not eat the tortillas or pasta they will spike insulin and prevent fat burning.

Thanks for clearing that up Chechkin! Man, I was just thinking about how yummy my lunch was going to be...chili in a whole wheat tortilla. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] Oh well, the sacrifices we make.

I knew the tortillas weren't 100% whole wheat, but I didn't think the pasta wasn't either. Dirty food manufacturers!!
