I know I'm behind on my totals. I usually finish eating at 2AM and I'm too tired to get out my calculator and add things up.

But I'll get on it soon.

I will also create a list of goals.

I've been eating so many Clif bars because my friend's store just went out of business (not a bad thing), he closed it to work on other projects and I bought a bunch of bars from him before he closed.

Peanut butter is my favorite.

I'm eating greens nearly everyday so I'm paying attention to that and there are still lots of things I want to improve on but I'm just putting all the cards on the table.

Every single person hides behind something, including myself (thinking that we eat a certain way when really 99% of the time we don't eat the way we "think" we do). I actually give talks about that, how our brain remembers certain things for certain reasons.

So anyway, I'm just putting it all out there. I used to think I didn't eat much junk food, and that I ate 10 bananas a day, and this and that and none of it is true. I do still eat a pretty good variety of things, and still get 4,000 calories a day, but it's not from yams and brown rice like I keep saying that I eat. This is my 6th or 7th day and I've had yams 0 times and brown rice once or twice.

Being honest with ourselves and others is the only way to truly track our programs so we can accurately evaluate them and create change and progress.

How do you feel your workouts are going as the result of your current nutrition program? Do you feel that you are making good gains in the gym? Are you putting on body weight with this current plan?

I think so. It has only been a week since I've been focused on both nutrition and training. I know that seems funny, even as I write it (focused on nutrition) when I'm eating cookies, ice cream and drinking soda. But I am making a good effort to eat some variety, have protein shakes, eat consistently, take in adequate calories, etc.

I'll get more details up later about my goals and I'll make totals for my food and liquid intake for the past few days.

I think I am making progress and even if I'm not, emotionally I'm pleased with myself for my level of commitment to keep track of everything exercise and food wise.

Time to go for the day. In the car all day today but I'll still get a lot of food. I already have a bag packed and prepared for my day trip for work :)

Thanks for checking in on me. I think I'm making progress and just that hopefulness makes me happy.

I know what you mean Rob. I try to eat a lot of greens and think I'm doing really well, then I realize I haven't had as many as I'd like. I try to avoid the junk as much as possible, but my problem is that I tend to binge a bit when I have them (ie: a pan of carob brownies in 2 days).

I'm too tired to add Thursday or Friday's total, but I will soon.

I had 4 protein drinks today so lots of liquid food. Nice leg workout and some good food in general, just not enough rest. Off to bed now and up again in 4 hours or so.

Today was the longest waking period without food from 6:30PM-11:20PM. I was actually finishing one meal at around 7PM and then had my Vega close to 11PM, but it was still 4-5 hours in between. I noticed feeling hungry after my leg workout because I had mostly fruit and protein drinks today. I had over a gallon of liquids today so that was nice.

Another long day........
