I felt like I ate alot today. As you can see, I was stuck with trying to find something that had some protein and alot of fat in it: crunchy peanut butter to the rescue! Though I was considering Vegenaise again like yesterday. . .
Totals for today (along with the alotted amount in parenthesis): Protein 159 (163), Carbs 265 (273), and Fat 96 (96). Calories: 2487 (2610)
Getting a routine set up. The only thing that will change will be the Breakfast after the walks, Lunch at 3 PM, and the first Dinner at 7 PM, all the other things will be the same I think - unless i run out of something . . . say peanut butter!
Side note: Today at the gym, they were doing their own Olympic events to celebrate the Olympics in London, and it was Bench Press today. I had just gotten done with my Tricep workout (kind of easy to do), and someone from the gym asked me if I wanted to do it. I did not want to do it, until I heard that my role model (who is in her late 50's) did it, and then I decided to do it. The Olympic Bench Press is very different. I am not use to a flat bench. I am not use to one set reps. I am not use to a freestanding bench with a rack above (I like the MaxRack or my Smith Machine). I am not use to hearing commands of Start, Press, Rack. All in all, they gave me 4 (instead of the usual 3) lifts to do, and finally did my bodyweight of 150lbs. A novel experience for me to personally experience - even though I know a couple of people who powerlift and have watched them many times do it but never tried myself.
