Default The Silver Jeans Predicament (Training Journal)

My favorite jeans don't fit properly! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

I know this is a lame excuse for starting a training journal (****, I'm so vain!). But this morning was a rather rude awakening when I tried to put them on. Serves me right 'cause I've been eating crap and been very lazy with my workouts. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img][img]/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] So I'm here to change all that! Tighten up my diet (aka I can't use chocolate as a "meal" [img]/forum/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]) and find the drive that's been missing in my workouts as of late.

Short term goals:
* Clean up my eating habits (more fibrous veggies, fewer "dirty" carbs)
* Stick to my workout schedule
* Learn to supplement properly

Long term goals:
* develop healthy patterns so I **never** have a "silver jeans predicament" again! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

DB Ext SS Rev Curl: 10x12kg; 3x10x14kg / 10x5kg; 3x10x7kg

Welcome and I am looking foward to reading about your success.

You are so funny. Of course chocolate is not a meal! That's because it is a vegetable!

Hi Tuf and Debbie [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] ... thanks for stopping by! Sigh ... don't tempt me on the chocolate thingie (considering it as a vegetable got me into this mess!! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] )

So here's a breakdown of my diet/supplements for today. Gosh, it seems like a lot of pills! I take one of those little plastic vitamin/mineral packages, so that's where all the extra stuff comes from. I'm pretty sure it needs tweaking, but I'm not sure how badly ... [img]/forum/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]



Meal 1:
2 oz oats
1.5 oz lean bacon (I'm doing a refridgerator purge)
4 eggwhites + 1 med egg
<font color="red"> 5g glutamine, 200mcg chromium </font>

Meal 2: (pre-workout)
1 small banana
<font color="red"> 1000mg VitC, Mega B-50, 400mg Vit E </font>

Meal 3: (post-workout)
1.5 serving protien
1.5 scoops Gatorade
<font color="red"> 5g Creatine, 5g glutamine, vanadyl sulfate, amino, antioxidant </font>

Meal 4:
1c black rice (It looks kinda like wild rice ... I bought it at the Indonesian grocery store)
6 med spears asparagus
1 can tuna
1 Tbsp olive oil

Meal 5:
60 ml karnemelk (the refridgerator purge continues ...)
50g Rijkgevuld Muesli

Meal 6:
1 chicken breast
1 big handful spinach
1 cup green beans
1/2 Tbsp olive oil

Meal 7:
1/2 cup (approx) lo-fat quark
50g Rijkgevuld muesli


So my fitday totals look something like this:

Total Calories: 2043
Fat: 43g (20%) Carbs: 220g (41%) Protein: 195g (39%)

Workout - March 9th, 2004
Back &amp; Abs

DB Rows: (Warmup: 2x12x14kg) 4x10x20kg

Seated Cable Rows SS Rev Grip Pulldowns:
10x32.5kg; 3x10x35kg / 4x10x40kg

Tbar Rows (w/ bb): 3x10x25kg + big bar (I don't know how heavy this is ... [img]/forum/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img])

BB drop: 2x(8x35kg)+(10x25kg)

Cable Crunches: 3x12x22.5kg

A good workout overall, but my forearms were really weak today. Grip strength definitely caused problems since my hands were giving out before my back was done. Will have to change my split ...

Hmph! Men ... [img]/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

My bf wanted to know what I was doing with FitDay.com, so I explained it to him. He says I don't need to lose weight, I just need to buy bigger jeans. Y-chromosome logic ... go figure. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Anyhow, cardio/off day today. Tomorrow is legs.

First, in my gym the BIG barbell is 45 pounds.

Second, tell BF that you prefer the healthy lifestyle so that you can be stronger than him.

Debbie - Yep, you were right, the big bar is 20kg (45lbs). In my old gym the bars ranged between 35 and 45 lbs. Now I've got a new gym (well, "fitness center" really) and have no clue what each bar weighs. I actually took my DL bar over to the scale today just to make sure. One of the personal trainers saw me doing it and just about fell over he was laughing so hard. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Personally, I fail to see the humour in the situation (and I think it's pretty bad form for a pt too! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img])

Leg curls SS Hamstring stretches

10x30kg + 5x35kg + 5x32.5kg
=&gt; 1 minute ham stretches after each "set"

Rom DL SS Hyperextentions
8x35kg*; 8x45kg*; 7x50kg* / 3x12x10kg
* not including bar weight

Leg Extensions: (I hate these!! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] )
15x20kg + 8x25kg + 8x22.5kg
12x22.5kg + 6x27.5kg + 6x32.5kg
10x25kg + 5x32.5kg + 5x37.5kg
10x7.5kg Left leg only

Horizontal Leg Press SS 1 min Quad stretch

A little low on calories today ... the last few days I feel like I've been run over by a truck. But I'm attributing that to my workouts (which have been much more intense).

I'm knackered! Time to catch some zzz's
