Frenchie,

I'm pretty sure there is only 1 gram of sugar per serving, which is 2 tbsp.

I tried to get on fitday to double check but, it's in it's daily routine of the server being too busy.

yeah, with low fat ranch the sugar is low. but frenchie is right MOST dressings with low fat just means MORE SUGAR [img]/forum/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

www.calorieking.com/foods has the info on ranch

OK, due to the weekend trip I was on (got home yesterday) I didn't get to the gym or eat well yesterday. (See my post on my Bad Weekend in the Members Discussion section)

Tuesday 10/14/03 (Week 2 of 12)

DIET

------------------------------------------------------------
6:30AM - 2 scoops Whey w/ 12 oz. water, Multivitamin, fish oil pill, 5 g creatine, 1 serving Swole v.2
8:30AM - 1 pkg instant plain Oatmeal, 1 tbsp flax oil
(Meal one is split because I had to leave to get the train, the oatmeal is eaten as soon as I get into work).
10:30AM - 2 scoops Whey w/12 oz. water, 1 tbsp flax oil
1:30PM - 2 cups steamed broccoli, 6 oz. chicken breast
4:15PM - Green Tea
4:45PM - 1 can tuna filet in olive oil, 1 whole wheat wrap, 1 tbsp low-fat mayo, hot sauce
6:45PM - 1 serving Swole v.2
8:30PM - PWO shake, 5 g creatine, 5 g glutamine, 500 mg vitamin C, 400 IU vitamin E
9:45PM - 6 oz chicken breast, 3 cups romaine lettuce, 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 2 tbsp of "Lite done Rite" Ceasar
11:00 - ZMA
11:45 - 2 scoops Whey w/ 12 oz. water and 1 tbsp flax oil

Total Macros (cal/f/c/p) = 2,708 / 110 / 116 / 315 (37%/17%/46%)


WORKOUT
-----------------------------------------------------------
7:00PM

Chest
BB Bench Press - Flat = 10x145, 8x160, 6x175 + 30 sec static strip @ 135
BB Bench Press - Incline = 10x125, 8x125, 6x125 + 30 sec static strip @ 115
DB Flys - Flat = 9x45
DB Flys - Incline = 9x35
DB Flys - 12x20

Shoulders
Seated DB Press = 10x30, 6x30, 6x30
Standing Lateral Raises = 10x15, 8x20, 6x25
DB Shrugs = 10x60, 8x70, 6x80 + 30 sec static strip @ 50

Triceps
Cable Pressdowns = 10x60, 8x70, 6x80
DB Kickbacks = 17x10, 12x15, 10x15

<font color="blue">I was not very happy with this workout, I barely increased any weight and struggled with Incline Bench and Shoulder DB Presses. I guess that shows the effects of my weekend of drinking. Thus, one of my goals is to give up heavy, binge drinking for good. </font>

I should be able to keep on the diet this weekend, so I happy about that. </font>

I would add another calf move. Calf raises on a box are my favorite. toe press is good too.

Good job on dropping the alcohol!! You're officially hardcore in my book. Keep up the good work! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

<font color="green">The Stiff Legged Dead Lifts are primarily for your Hamstrings. I know they work the lower back a bit, but I think it's mostly the legs... Here's a quote from the exercise page</font>

<font color="green">Yeah, I've been thinking about adding standing calf raises or super setting with reverse calf raises.

Thanks for the compliment. It'll be hard to not drink beer on Sunday....I'll be at the Giant vs. Eagles game, but I'll just bring my trusty water bottle!! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] </font>

In that case, you are probably neglecting your lower back. If you're just starting out, it shouldn't be too much of a problem but I would watch down the road, it may begin to hinder your progress.
Keep that water bottle handy!!

WEEKEND

Kept up with my diet over the weekend. It was a little more spaced out with the meal timing (a lot not under my control), but didn't do too bad. I was away visiting friends in CT for the weekend and was running around a lot.

I maintained my carb and protein intake and may have lacked somewhat on the fat intake.

The worst things I had over the weekend was a few diet sodas and a cheeseburger (the golf course grill didn't have any chicken breast). The best thing of all is that I DIDN'T HAVE ONE DROP OF ALCOHOL!!! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Not one beer, not one glass of wine or mixed drink. It wasn't too tempting while tailgating at the Giants / Eagles game, probably because the friends I was with are not big drinkers.

Next Sunday will be the real test...Eagles home game and the guys I tailgate with there are BIG drinkers, but I think I can do it.
