Kiwi fruit in the green smoothie are great. Leave the skin on for extra fiber!

yeah, been having kiwi! Also pineapple :idea:

Done something to my arm/shoulder. Never mind, I have continued to workout with martial arts and cardio, as well as just some light weights to avoid further injury.

More important, I am now putting protein powder into the green smoothies. And then I drink them - a crucial step which is often overlooked! This should make sure I get enough protein as well as the all the nutrients from spinach and fruit that I normally don't get so much of... I feel like this is such a great way for me to eat healthily - so long as I don't binge on other food in the meantime, which I haven't been doing. Mainly I have been having about 2 litres of smoothie at work, along with a very small amount of oats with sunflower seeds and soy milk, and then when I get home I have a regular cooked meal.

Just did an hour on the bike. That's 460 calories apparently, according to the 100% accurate computer that is not wired to my body and seems to work by MAGIC. But anyway, I sweated so much that my t shirt was like your face after I pissed all over it, yet was scentless unlike your face.

GOOD TIMES!

It actually was pretty easy, just a matter of determination. I hate cardio because it's so boring, but I guess this is how I will win.

NEWS FLASH

I hit 50 push ups today. I'm so happy - that is my max. I did it about 7 years ago, but I was about 11 stone back then, and I am closer to 12 stone now. So it's a real milestone to be back at that level - and even further due to my weight.

Been keeping up with training, and I've been getting a lot of compliments at work which is cool.

Okay shit just got real

Been off and on with training over christmas for various reasons including flu, and have been getting back to it again, but not done enough to worry about keeping track. But now I am ready to pump your ass full of sex

Also I am changing how I eat to hopefully become leaner. I have dropped bulky carb foods like bread, pasta and cereals. I am focussing on vegetables, nuts/seeds, with some tofu / soy things, and supplementing with green smoothies and protein shakes. I have also been doing a lot of cardio at the gym.

I've done that too, replacing my grain carbs with fats and slower digesting carbs. Oddly enough my macros are like 33/33/33ish meow.

Balance, ftw.

I feel like I've been eating too many carbs, and it's just so easy for me to over-eat on them. It's harder to "binge" now on this kind of diet, and not such a big deal if I eat a lot. Before, if I sat and ate 3 bowls of cereal or pasta, then that's really bad news. But if I have 2 smoothies and some nuts, it's not so bad.

OKAY OFF TO THE GYM BIATCHES

Feeling good. My diet now is looking like this each day roughly. I am actually feeling full from it. The smoothies are pretty big, today for instance I had a bunch of spinach, 2 bananas, pear, kiwi, and water. After a meal that packs me full...

06:45am - Protein shake
10:00am - Nuts, sultanas, carrots, apple
01:00pm - Nuts, sultanas, carrots, apple
04:30pm - Some kind of meal with vegetables, beans, soy... but no bread, pasta or rice
04:45pm - Smoothie with spinach, and various fruits and berries
09:00pm - Protein shake

Okay last night I was seriously bloated and I don't know why. Looking at my food yesterday, all I can think is that I drank a lot of smoothie, then laid down to watch TV. Belly was really swollen, I don't know what's going on

TODAY

Training
30 minutes cardio
(10 rowing, 10 bike, 10 crosstrainer)
Dips: x10, x12, x12

Asked the guy at the gym if I could use the support bars on the treadmill to do dips. He said "no". Nice guy. So I found that I can do them in the corner of my kitchen on the counter, i'll be using that from now on

Food:
Breakfast: 1 banana, 2 burgers, 2 cups of tea
Post-workout: 1 banana, Baked beans
Lunch: Cupful of nuts and sultanas, 1/2 a mango, 1 thick burger (AWESOME), 2 carrots
Afternoon: Half a mango, bowl of TVP
Evening: Protein shake with flax, pear, apple

Hi Richard, sounds a bit of a plonker this guy at the gym. I would of thought it would be equipped with a dip station.

Can I ask what veggie burgers you use? I find it hard to get them from tesco because they contain egg or milk powder derivative
