Default Day 6 (Food) & Day 7

Day 6

Hmm, I really need to get to grips with this meal planning activity.
Not a good day today.
Breakfast: Run out of eggs, so went for cereal and skimmed milk.
Snack: Large take out Americano coffee (Busy work day today).
Lunch: Again, no planning here so grabbed some chicken pasta.
Snack: Nuts & Raisins
Tea: Felt hungry when I got in so had a slice of wholemeal bread with cheese.
Dinner: Take out curry with friends. I opted for a Chicken Karai, which is cooked in tomato with chillies. Also had a vegetable rice. Should have gone for a plain tandoori or tikka chicken as the sauce was still a bit greasy. Only had 3 beers, so not too disappointed with my food. We had a good night though, which made up for it !

Day 7:
Dog walking today.
Family day - so no gym.
Breakfast: 3 egg omlette with green veg - shopping today - remember to make list for meal
No lunch - out all day, large Americano coffee.
Did some chores in the afternoon, putting up mirrors, clearing out the garage etc.
Dinner: Roast chicken, veg and potaoes, with gravy - very nice, didn't overload my plate.
My daughter made me fruit salad for desert, bless her. Then I helped her make some buns - I only had 1 - honest.

Default Week 1 Review:

Ok, so I've looked at my week one work out schedule and food diary.

I'm happy with my workouts, but will try to squeeze in 1 more Interval session this week.

Food wise, not too bad for week 1.

Areas to focus on -

More planning ! Don't run out of the basics.
Try to cut down on the caffiene - maybe even try some green tea (it's an acquired taste)
Snacks: Try to cut down / out the rye bread and substitute for veg with houmous instead.

Goals:
No change, but will add a couple of short term ones, i.e. Green Tea, less caffiene.
Long term - been thinking that when I'm fit and healthy in a few weeks I may donate some blood to the blood bank.

Thanks for the continued support.

Default Congrats!

Congrats on your progress so far. I like to see what other TTers are eating. I've tried some peppermint tea and camolile tea. Nice for a change but a coffee still goes down well also.lol.

Good luck with the 2nd wk of the contest.

Default Oops ! Week 2 Fail, but back on Track now !

Ok, so I haven't had a work out since Weds 19 Jan - Been a major crisis at work so working 05:00 to 22:00 most days - We own a small family business, so when the proverbial hits the fan it's me that has to deal with it.

Anyways, I kind of managed to stick to the diet, with a relaxed approach at the weekends - which means alcohol was involved !

Stated back on schedule last Monday 31 Jan as follows;

Mon 31 Jan
Breakfast: Omlette, steamed broccoli, onion, mushroom, green & red peppers & tomato.
Cup of tea.
Snack: Fruit salad (1/2 apple, yellow plum, scattering of blueberries, strawberry) and 3 desert spoons of low fat natural yoghurt.
Green Tea.
Lunch: Tuna with salad (Lettuce leaves, cucumber, tomato, mushroom, green beans, peppers, salad onion)
Protein shake.
1 cup of green tea.
Snack: Cashew nuts and raisins.
Snack: Houmous & crispbread
Cup of green tea.
Dinner: Roast gammon, green veg & sweet potato.
Snack: Houmous and rye crispbread.
Snack: Natural youghurt

Ok, not sure if it was bravado or insanity, but decided to start the TT 2k11 Workout

Workout A:
Warmup:
BW Squat x 10 Jumping Jacks x 20 Stick Up x12 Prisoner lunge x 8 ea
Close grip push up x10 leg swing x20 ea Psoas Stretch x20sec ea Chest Stretchx20s ea


1a: Barbell Squat 30kg x 6 reps (3 sets)
1b: Verical jump x 5 (3 Sets)
2a: DB walk lunge 10kg (x2) x 8 reps ea (2 sets only)
2b: 1 leg S-ball leg curl x12 reps (2 sets only)
(I varied the next phase instead of 2c and then 3a and 3b, I did 3a & 3b, then did 4 seperately - gasping like an old man at the end it !)
3a: S-ball roll out x10 reps (3 sets)
3b: S-ball x-body mountain climber (tough !) x8 reps (2 sets only - really tough !)
4: Shuttle sprints 2x 15 secs + 2x 15 sec recovery - sounded like a steam train !

I was quite pleased with what I achieved considering I'd had a break for over 10 days.
Looking forward to the next workout on this program.

Default Weds 2 Feb

Breakfast: Omlette, steamed broccoli, onion, mushroom, green & red peppers & tomato, cheese.
Cup of tea.
Snack: Fruit salad (1/2 apple, 1/2 kiwi fruit, scattering of blueberries, strawberry) and 3 desert spoons of low fat natural yoghurt.
Coffee. Massive headache yesterday - no coffee for 2 days !
Lunch: Leftover pork with salad (Lettuce leaves, cucumber, tomato, mushroom, green beans, peppers, salad onion)
Protein shake.
1 Coffee
Snack: Cashew nuts and raisins.
Snack: Houmous & crispbread
Cup of green tea.
Dinner: Salmon, sprouts, sweet potato
Snack: Houmous and rye crispbread.

Headache went after the coffee ! A bit worrying really.

Also booked a health MOT at the gym for 2 weeks time. Test for blood pressure, chlorestrol, VO2, recovery heart rate, BMI, etc.

Workout B: from TT2k11

OMG looks easier on paper !
1a BB press 6 reps x 3 sets
1b Ngrip seated row 10 reps x 3 sets

2: 3 min pull up test - used 35kg assist and managed 20 way too tough even with assist
I aim to reduce the assist, but have a back / neck problem which is aggravated by pull ups (less so by chin ups).

3: 3 min push up test - 45

4: 5min kettleball swing test - pretty tired at this point so only did 3 mins x 40 reps

5a: DB tricep ext 6 reps x 1set
5b: DB curl 6 reps x 1 set

Wow, felt tired towards the end, but now have a target to complete the workout ove the next few weeks.
