Got my iron in today. 150lbs. 4x25's, 4x10's, and 2x5's. They came odd so I ordered 2x more 5's, and 4x2.5's. I will be going to Lowe's with my scale to get some 1/2lb micro weights made of chain, 8 to be exact.
My dumbbell handles aren't in, nor is my multi function no mar chinup/pullup bar. I'm deciding if I want to buy an EZ curl bar and two 45s, but I think I need a weight tree first, plus some mats to protect my floor. I need to go find a medical walker to do my dips on too.
200lbs is going to be perfect for me being limited to only dumbbells and body weight+
My diet is boring, same thing day after day. But I like it, it's healthy. Here's what I eat.
1/4 Loaf Sprouted Bread
1/2 Bag Frozen Veggies
1/2-1 Tbsp Olive Oil
3 Tbsp Flaxseed
120g Rice or 140g Pasta, dry
1c Beans or Legumes, or 1/2 Block of Tofu (I found organic tofu on sale for 2 bucks!)
1 or 2 Apple
60g Protein Powder
1 Gallon of Water
1 cup of coffee, few cups of tea
It comes out to about 2,500-2,750. Sometimes I go to Vons and end up with some olives and hummus to take home and slap on my bread, once a week I'll usually get a latte which are like 400. All in all my diet is heavily based on instinctive eating. When my sis and I do dinner she buys so those days are well over 3,000, plus she buys me soy or coconut ice cream for desert. Hehe.
I'm a simple dude. I eat on instinct. Anything in the realm of health I eat, I don't bother with calories anymore.
My exercise regime has evolved, sans weightlifting I've been sprinting 3x a week and doing other stuff, like farmers walks with Optima batteries I can't seem to sell. My sprints go by the mantra "as hard as I can push myself without puking". Usually my cardio days run 45min to 60 min. I sprint for 1 min, walk or jog for 2 or 3. I try and get 3 or 4 mi of solid sprinting in. My middle sprinting day usually has me a bit tired so I sometimes walk instead of jog for my rest period.
On my lifting days I'll be doing weighted walks, or farmers walks to fill in my cardio requirements. Shoulders day doesn't need it, I space my lifts 90sec apart, those are brutal.
Until I get my stuff though, it's just cardio.
