Your journal rocks! Love the effort and I'm making an "organizer's choice" decision and hooking you up with one of our many prizes. You're our first winner in The New You for the New Year Challenge!

We're selecting winners based on lots of different things, and 3 different organizers will select weekly winners, and of course we'll still do the trivia for all to enter and win, but I'm hand-picking this journal as one that is unique, stands out and has a lot of thought and work put into it, as our first winner!

Well done, Jesse!

Great stuff you've got going on here. I even like the colors and organization :)

Email robert@veganbodybuilding.com - I'll give you a list of prizes to choose from in this biweekly prize give-away.

Have a great workout tomorrow and enjoy those garbanzo beans!

-Robert

  • Finished up by doing the 22 minute Walk Away The Pounds 1 Mile DVD and some stretching with the Gaiam Band.

Felt it was a good workout.Tomorrow is my day off B) Pull Ups were really hard with all this extra weight around my gut.once the fat burns away it should get better, plus extra strength will help too, lol.



Nutrition
  • Meal One Organic Chili, 4 mini Cucumbers, Braswell's Tomato and Onion Dressing, 16 oz water (30P, 84C 18F)
  • meal two Oatmeal Raisin Almond Cliff Bar ((10P, 43C, 5F)

  • meal four Amys Indian Mattar Paneer, Sunwarrior Ormus Supergreen (11P, 54C, 8F)

  • Preworkout Carrot Juice with Hemp Protein (17P,17C,6F)
  • Post Workout Naked Green Machine 16oz, Sunwarrior Blend, a Banana (22P, 94C,1F)
  • Meal Six ! Cup Chiuckpeas, ! Cup Chopped Raw Kale, 1 teaspoon Bragg Liquid Amino and a sprinkle of Bragg Herb sprinkle
Headed to the store after work for some Oatmeal, Beans and other stuff..


Overall I feel a little bloated right now and I haven't even had my chickpeas yet.energy level was so so today.I thought once i started the workout it was fine but work has been tiresome with the overtime so it is hard to judge whether it is the extra day of training making me tired or 10 hours of warehouse work (some lifting, picking product...)

I drank 100 oz of water today ..lost count but it was a lot I filled by Brita water at work 4 times (16 oz bottle) than dranked a bunch during my workout so i am pretty sure it was over 100 oz, I haven't even had dinner yet (7 PM)..

Robert is right, Jesse. Your journal is very organized and it's very easy for me to zero in on the info I'm looking for. :D

I see your weight is down by more than a pound today. Awesome, but we don't want you dropping too quickly. I'm definitely going to have you eating more soon. I just want to see what your weight does for another day or so. But keep eating smaller meals, more often. And keep your water intake up. Drop me an email when you get a chance. I'm interested in how your energy level is, with the increase in cardio and adding another day for weight training. If you're hungry in the evening, especially if you trained within the previous few hours, EAT! You gotta fuel those muscles!! And be sure you're eating adequately both before AND after your training.

You're doing fantastic! Keep up the great work!

Eat as much kale as you want! It's a sooooo packed with nutrition!!!

I agree, as you use up all of those canned goods, replace them with staples and ingredients to prepare your own meals. Try some new recipes. If you have a crock pot, they're great for soups, baking sweet potatoes, steaming stuffed bell peppers, all sorts of things. Have fun and experiment with new ways to prepare your food.

Ordered 80 oz worth of Bob's Red Mill Natural Raw Sunflower Seeds and Vega Whole Food Health Optimizer Chocolate..sometimes I get a weird reaction to nuts (especially Almonds) so seeds are usually better for me...Just gotta tell myself to put the bag down after i measure how much i am going to eat..lol


I still have to acquire a taste for kale but that is the reason i buy it...I have gotten sick off spinach and broccoli so i am cautious, If I steam broccoli and mix it with something like quinoa or rice i am fine but raw I can get really sick..

152 ounces of water today.though that might go up.

was planning on oatmeal for breakfast but nodded off after the alarm went off so when I woke up again i had a hour to get to work..oops.so settled for the garbanzo beans, larabar and clif bars are nice to have at work so i can eat them while i am working on a forklift at work.I should be eating more natural stuff but i really don't how that would work with my job...Got my Red Mill Raw Sunflower seeds in today so after i finish off the bag of salted ones I'll have some that aren't salty as hell...

work was alright just the long day makes it tiring.felt alot better than yesterday which was good.I notice I am going to the restroom more at work with the increase water intake..when i am on the lift drivng it must juggle the water around to my bladder or something..lol

Workout was good...added flys to make it longer, not really sure what else to add.I will have to pop in the p90x chest dvd and get some ideas...Pain in my knee today while doing the walking video was nil so that is a good sign that the walking is helping, and the eating more for that matter...

Great job, Jesse! Your weight is consistently dropping. :D

How is your energy and strength on your current macros? Be sure you're taking progress photos, in addition to weighing daily.

Morning weigh in - 228.8

Workout

  • 3 Mile walking off the pounds (50 minutes)

Nutrition

  • Breakfast - steel oats,flaxseed,hemp protein,spirulina,almond milk,frozen berries from costcos (30p,87c,14f)
  • snack - sunflower seeds (15p,21c,42f)
  • Lunch - Amy's No Chicken Noodle, Quinoa, brown rice (17p,72c,9f)
  • snack/pre workout almond milk, Vega complete whole foods choc (29p,43c,8f)
  • dinner chickpeas, Kirkland organic salsa, frozen spinach, bragg sprinkles, cayenne pepper (31p,97c,8f)
  • snack carrot juice, hemp protein (15p,25c,3f)

all those sunflower seeds was a bad idea, wont do that again.been cramping all day.i will never go above 1/4 cup again.besides that i though it was alright.I would like to get more protein without using 2 scoops of vega, I would prefer to use only 1 scoop to make it last longer.I am going to make a big push in using up all the canned stuff i got than just pre make batches of rice and beans and just mix green veggies and whatever else i have.

wish i had a vitamix to make my own almond milk but the blender i have now wouldn't do the job.Just too much salt in pre made almond milk.maybe one day.energy level was ok today, went to the co op and got some raw pumpkin seed and spirulina bars and cliff bars for snacks at work.got home, made my shake, waited about 20 minutes than did my three mile away the pounds video which lasted about 50 minutes.waited about a hour than ate dinner..

will post some progress pics later this week.I want to get another week of training in since i posted my before pics just 2 1/2 weeks ago, I want to wait another week.

Oh yeah drank about 112 oz of water today

You're doing great! You've incorporated some great changes and the scale is moving! Yay!

I just read your email. I'm glad to hear that you're "full of energy"! That's called more adequate nutrition and hydration, my friend. It only gets better and better! Now, if we could only get you sleeping better, things would really go up another notch! But keep at it. Step by step, day by day, you will reach your goals.
