My Journey Week One

Warning!

This is old now and while its still worth a read to find out what happened it wasn’t completed, but I went on to do the 90 day challenge click here to read that

So here it begins, I hope to report daily this week on how I have been doing, so below is how I have gotten on:

Monday 23/04/2012 Day 1

So with it being a Monday I started today with the weighting

Weight now =192lb (up a little from when I did the first page lol)

I was meant to be getting up this morning at 7am and doing that from then on, but heck that isn’t going to happen so I am just going to stay at the 8am time lol and just make sure I stick to getting only 8 hours and not going bed early, this journey isn’t going to be about excuses so if you see one send me an email and tell me.

I was meant to be going gym and doing the extreme cardio workout in the afternoon but (and this inst an excuse so dont email yet read on lol) BUT I couldn’t get a baby sitter for my 2 and half year old daughter as my mum had to work (I cant take her to the gym to young) this shouldn’t really happen often as my mum is a GREAT person (if your reading this mum :) ) and helps me out lots when I go gym etc. I did start my extreme cardio and was sweating buckets see image lol

Now for the food and what calories I have and will consume for this day, here is when I have had it and what the nutritional facts are (facts are like this c/p/f/c = calories/protein/fats/carbohydrates)

Morning breakfast: 100g Raw oats with 200ml of milk c 488/p 17.6/f  15.2/c 69.8

Morning snack: Protein shake (this is the shake I normally have after the gym) c 420/p 41.2/f 0.6/c 60.4

Dinner: Steak c 285/p 24.5/f 17.8/c 5.3

Afternoon Snack: Protein shake (hemp protein see herec 145/p 17.9/f 4.9/c 7.2

Tea: 9 Meatballs c 450/p 47.25/f 24.3/c 9.75
(I make these by frying them with no added oil, then when they are cooked I pure freshly boiled water on, this gets allot of fat off them and also the fat out of the pan, as you can see within the picture before I did this, the fat is high)

Snack:  25g peanuts c 150/p 6.6/f 12.0/c 3.4
10 almonds c 75/p 2.65/f 6.2/c 1.2

Before bed: 150g low fat cottage cheese c 112.5/p 16.5/f 2.25/c 6.45

Total = c 2125.5/p 174.2/f 89.95/c 163.5

OK some points here to be made, I have done really bad on trying to eat 2500 calories as I have come in under and my fat total was to high, this I will fix tomorrow I am sure, also I feel my carbohydrates are also to high, I would like to try and push my protein consumption higher, so will aim at this tomorrow and let you know how get on.

Throughout the day I have drank plenty of water and I allways do, I start every day of by drinking two pints of water, I have this sitting waiting for me at the side of my bed for when I wake up lol

So lets roll on tomorrow and go for day two! thanks for all your support!

Tuesday 24/04/2012 Day 2

So if you have been following this you will know this has gone on a day late, sorry I was pooped and when bed a little earlier :( but apart from that my day went great, did the gym and my extreme cardio whaa whoo, this is what I ate also below and remember I tried to change what I ate to lower my carbs and fat here is when I have had it and what the nutritional facts are (facts are like this c/p/f/c = calories/protein/fats/carbohydrates)

Morning breakfast: 100g Raw oats with 100ml (not 200ml today) of milk c 424/p 14.3/f  11.6/c 65.1

Morning snack: Protein shake (after the gym) c 420/p 41.2/f 0.6/c 60.4

Dinner: Tuner 258g (two tins) 1 spoon of low fat mayo  c 301/p 61.2/f 1.4/c 0.0 (up in protein down in fats and carbs)

Afternoon Snack: Protein shake (hemp protein see herec 145/p 17.9/f 8.9/c 10.7

and this Protein shake (hemp protein natural see herec 111/p 14.1/f 3.8/c 4.6

Tea: Steak, 4 egg whites, 80g of veg c 383/p 42.3/f 18.2/c 8.8

Snack: 10 almonds c 75/p 2.65/f 6.2/c 1.2

Before bed: 150g low fat cottage cheese c 112.5/p 16.5/f 2.25/c 6.45

Total = c 1971.5 /p 207.5 /f  52.95 /c 157.25

Well that tells use something, I hadn’t worked any of this out until I just written it here, so that could be a good reason why I feel tiered (not the full reason) but as you can see I haven’t eaten enough calories :( the protein is great and I am happy with that, the fats are to low I want around a 60 to 70 grams really, carbs well I am unsure and its something I would like to play with, low is good if I can function with my day and stick to it lol

Wednesday 25/04/2012 Day 3

here is when I have had it and what the nutritional facts are (facts are like this c/p/f/c = calories/protein/fats/carbohydrates)

Morning breakfast: 100g Raw oats with 100ml of milk c 424/p 14.3/f 11.6/c 65.1

Morning snack: Protein shake (after the gym) c 420/p 41.2/f 0.6/c 60.4

Dinner: Tuner 258g (two tins) 1 spoon of low fat mayo c 301/p 61.2/f 1.4/c 0.0

Afternoon Snack: Protein shake x 2 (hemp protein natural see here) c 222/p 28.2/f 7.6/c 9.2

Went to pot from here :( We was out and got a KFC, I stuck to the chicken but unsure on the calories as they dont tell you and its full of bread crumbs so that’s carbs and think its got skin on so that fats also, but lots of protein lol ooops

Before bed: 150g low fat cottage cheese c 112.5/p 16.5/f 2.25/c 6.45

Total = c 1479.5 /p 161.4/f 23.45/c 141.15

Added the calories etc. with what I new before the KFC , but I am not worried about it to much as look how low my fats and calories were carbs will be to high I think but my fats would have been around the same as the day before and the calories, so I need to pick some other foods, will get this fixed ASAP

Also again today I was tiered but had a chat to a mate and he said I will with lower carbs so to take some caffeine (will go into this more soon, along with any supplements I take, as I have been emailed about that.

Thersday 26/04/2012 Day 4

So I am going to stop writing everything I eat down every day, I am now only going to update when I do some big changes to the food , as you can get the idea from the days before on what I am eating etc.

What I have done I have increased my fats intake, I really just have been eating like day 2, just more almonds and hole eggs, and doing the same day in day out lol

Friday 27/04/2012 Day 5

Saturday 28/04/2012 Day 6

Sunday 29/04/2012 Day 7

Days 5,6 and 7 have all been the same and good, I have been asked some questions via email and one was about what supplements do I take, so here goes:

In the morning I take a Super Multi vitamin (from Bulking Powders) I also take one of these at the evening time

I take 6g of creatine power with my after workout protein shake

And that is it, I dont really take anything else at this time but probably will do in the future or when I do any product reviews

week one over

Here is week two
