I enjoyed your drinking rant. I usually offer to drive too so I am not pressured to drink. It is hysterical how much social pressure comes from people to drink, eat horrible for you food etc. instead of actually doing something good for them. Your log is looking great though so I am going to pressure u to keep it up! although I know you don't really need my pressure.

Viva - Maybe it was second-hand intoxication?? :wink:

MaryStella - I know! If I'm cool with hanging out with my glass of water then everyone else should be too. Maybe we should start peer pressuring people to eat healthy and exercise..."come on, all of the COOL kids are doing it!" 8)

Saturday, May 16th:

Rest day! I had a 60 min. yoga class in the AM and that's it.

Diet:
Breakfast: protein powder mixed with soy milk, apple
Lunch: roasted broccoflower, tofu over salad with dressing
Snack: apple
Supper: kidney bean burgers, mixed greens, asparagus, apple for dessert
Snack: peanut butter, protein powder, and a bit of maple syrup

Cals 1559
Fat (g) 42.1
Carbs (g) 215.6
Prot (g) 98.0

Weight this morning was 147.5. Which means I must have been super bloated last week when I weighed myself at 152.5.

I also took my measurements for the first time in a month:

Chest: 37" (-0.5")
Waist: 29.5" (-0.5")
Hips: 39" (-0.5")

So I'm down half an inch everywhere...nice. :)

Monday, May 18th:

Weights: None

Cardio: The gym is closed as today is Victoria Day here in Canada. I wanted to head outside for a run this morning but it was below freezing when I woke up. Yesterday was 20 celcius/68 farenheit and not even 24 hours later they're giving more snow...*sigh* Summer, will you ever get here? Anyway, so this morning I improvised and did level 2 of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred DVD. Man that thing is tough.

No yoga class tonight because of the holiday so I am going to do a yoga DVD later this evening.

I found this one hundred push-ups program. I can barely do 3 push-ups so I wanted to start trying it out.

Diet:
Breakfast: oatmeal with flax, protein powder, blueberries, and a bit of maple syrup
Lunch: grilled tofu over salad with dressing, leftover kidney bean burger
Snack: dates, apple, banana
Supper: stewed potatoes and tofu in miso gravy, brussel sprouts
Snack: strawberries

Cals 1593
Fat (g) 36.0
Carbs (g) 257.8
Prot (g) 84.3

Protein a little low. I was really hungry in the afternoon for some reason, hence all of fruit for a snack.

Update: So I did the first day of that push-up program. I suck. I can't even do 1 push-up with full ROM. I did them the best I could: 5 sets: 2, 3, 2, 2, 3. I suppose the upside is that I can't possibly get any worse...

I'm familiar with that program. I've never tried it, but a future goal I have is to do 100 consecutive push-ups. Let me know how it works. I'll be checking out your log. That site has a 200 sit-up and 200 BW squat program too. If I was a morning lifter I'd try all 3 programs.

Thanks! :)

Wednesday, May 20th:

Weights: Quad Dominant/Ham Accessory & Biceps
Goblet Squat:
20 lbs x 8
30 lbs x 5
35 lbs x 5
35 lbs x 5
35 lbs x 5
35 lbs x 5

Thanks again for suggesting these...I was able to go down past parallel while keeping good form.

Hammer Curls (Usually I do these at the end but the leg press was being occupied):
15 lbs x 8
15 lbs x 8
15 lbs x 8

Leg Press:
140 lbs x 8
150 lbs x 8
150 lbs x 8

High Foot Leg Press:
110 x 12
110 x 12
110 x 12

Cardio: HIIT on stationary bike...did 10 30 sec. intervals (level 7 resistance) followed by 60 sec. rest. I didn't feel like I was giving it the intensity I usually do...the effort was there but my body just didn't want to cooperate. Don't get me wrong, it was still intense, just not at the level I feel like I normally am at. If that makes any sense.

I have a 90 min. bellydancing class tonight.

Diet:
Pre-workout: banana, rice cake
Post-workout: rice cakes, protein powder and soy milk and flax
Snack: pear
Lunch: leftover casserole
Snack: apple
Supper: leftover casserole, sauteed spinach
Snack: protein powder and soy milk, 1/2 tbsp peanut butter

Cals 1550
Fat (g) 21.0
Carbs (g) 270.0
Prot (g) 91.3

Fats have been a little low lately...need to bump those up. My protein is also lower than I'd like considering I lifted and did HIIT today.

Edited to add: Forgot to do my push-ups at the gym so I did Day 2 of Week 1 of the push-up program in the middle of the afternoon - 5 sets: 3, 4, 2, 3, 4....it's sad how hard those were. :roll:

I love how you're so consistent with your training journal. And organizing your food.

Three push up's is a great start :)
But I believe you can do more.
I always like to tell myself that my mind is the strongest part on my body.
Think happy thoughts and fly away.

You can do it !
