Sweet deal on counting calories.

Whoop Whoop! Page 2!



Thanks man, I am doing my best to keep track so I have a good log of what worked and what didn't. I thought calorie counting was a good way for me to see how much I was really eating. I have a tendency to over eat all the time.


A note of encouragement, I measured my arms today and I am up 1/4" to 16.5" not bad for just starting my third week.

Ran for 20min. Hit the sprints extra hard! The last min was way better than a couple of days ago.

5:15am Soy milk & soy protein shake with a banana. 405 cals 31P

7:15 Black bean soup 500 cals 25P

10:00 Green bean salad and pumpkin seeds. 260 cals 11P

1:00 Meeting with the boss, Mexican restaurant lunch. 800 cals 20P (just guessing the values here, I assumed high. It was a nightmare just getting them to leave the cheese off!)

4:00 rice protein 1 scoop, and apple sauce. 100 cals 12P(taste was awful! But you can't beat the calorie to protein ratio in rice powder.)

6:00 I ran! boy did I run. Watching a 250lbs dude run has to be something to see.

7:00 2 scoop rice shake with soy milk. 200 cals 31P

2265 calories and 130 Protein for the day

DB dead lift...


10x60
10x60
10x60
10x60
10x60

Need more weight! I ordered 2 us navy sea duffel bags for my sand bags. So, so very soon will I have the extra weight I crave!

DB shrugs

10x60
10x60
10x60
10x60
10x60


food today...

7:15 soy protein shake and soy milk. 300 cals 31P

9:30 1 can of sweet peas with fat free Italian dressing. 230 cals 14P

12:00 veggie sandwich and baked potato chips. 350 cals 7P

3:00 1 oz mixed nuts and a small box of raisins. 300 cals 7P

4:00 workout

5:00 Rice protein shake with soy milk. 200 cals 31P

7:00 1oz of pumpkin seeds and one box of raisins. 290 cals 10P

9:00 1 oz mixed nuts, 1 banana 290 cals 7P

10:30 chocolate chip clif bar. 240cals 10P

12:30 Tortilla chips and guacamole. 600 cals 7P (Damn this dip! I made it for a Christmas party tomorrow and I wanted to test it out. I just couldn't put it down. I may have estimated high on the cals, but better high than low.)

2800 calories, 124 grams of protein.

I have to say it was nice to eat more. 2800-3200 calories a day was what I use to eat daily before I became a vegan. (that was before lifting, just a normal day.) I hate the hunger feeling all day. I may bump the cals back up.... because my goal is to build muscles. I am thinking if I worry less about the cals and just keep my portions in check, and eat 6 to 8 times a day I should be good.

No calorie count today, too much grazing going on.... I munched on tons of crackers this morning at a friends place.... along with soy chocolate milk, and other goodies...lots of salad! Calorie counting will continue tomorrow.

DB Bench Press

5x40
5x60
5x60
5x60
5x60

DB rows

5x40
5x60
5x60
5x60
5x60

I got that last bench press rep out today, barely. I gave myself 3min of rest between sets. I am really struggling with my chest something fierce. I may need to change up my chest work out for a few weeks. Maybe I will start doing incline presses, or DB flys.

DB military press

5x40
5x50
1x60

5x50

I tried to use the 60lb Dumbbells, too heavy. I managed to push one out.

Box Dumbbell squats.

5x40
5x60
5x60
5x60
5x60

I decided to use a milk crate for box squats. I was worried that when I was getting to the last few reps I was ending the squats short. Now since my butt has to touch the box every time it should add consistency.

2:00 salad. black beans. some pasta. 500cals 25p

4:00 banana and 1oz of pumpkin seeds. 290 10p

I've been following your blog. :twisted:

Did you really do 11 sets? Try and do more. My workouts are 20 sets of 6-8 reps now. It's good for me.

Try eating more protein. Your a big guy, try 50 grams more and see what happens.

Yeah, I have been considering drinking 1 more protein shake during my day just to add a bump in my protein intake. I have been think about hiring a personal trainer to show me how to do my exercises correctly. I started my lifting routine in 12/7 and as of today 12/28. It has been three weeks. So is my progress slow? or behind? I know I have not added much weight to my lifts but 60's are the heaviest dumbbells I own. I should have my sandbags ready next week, and that should help.

Food today....

9:45 soy and rice protein shake with soy milk. 350cals 41P

11:15 Veggie burger, small salad. 320cals 11p

2:00 Luna bar.180cals 10p

4:00 can of navy beans and small cup of brown rice. 650cals 31P

6:00 luna bar, veggie chips, rice crakers. 315cals 14P

7:00 work out.... bicycle....extra hard. 20min BFL style.

8:00 rice and soy protein shake with soy milk 350cals 41p

cals 2165 protein 148

I did not train today. My legs are still hurting form the squats and the bicycle. I figured it may be beneficial to give them a day to recoup. Those box squats are killers. Lots of cal taken in today! I dig eating more, I don't feel so sluggish. 200 grams of protein! woo who!
