Just put in a little more time for squats! It took me a while to hit those numbers, and a lot of patience, but I'm sure you could hit them!

I can see a big difference in your size. Very good improvements in just 2 months, nice going.

How much protein are you consuming now?

I have vegan meal optimizer in the morning, so that's 16 g I think. Plus half a serving of vegan proteins plus before my workout and a full serving after. So that makes about 46 grams in total, so probably around 75-85 grams a day.

So you have decreased your total amount of protein it sounds likes compared to what you used to do. Your total protein intake sounds good, you still weigh around 170? If I am understanding you correctly, you are getting around 65g protein from optimizer/plus and around 20 more from the food you eat?

I still weigh around 170, when I was talking about my protein intake before, I went about it the wrong way and estimated a higher amount than I think I could realistically eat. I think I'm getting more than 20 grams of protein a day, I've never really taken the time to figure it out. But I eat a lot of quinoa, tofu and tempeh.

I'm keeping track of my protein intake today, so I'll post what I eat in a regular day as well as the protein intake that I get.

I'd say I get about 160-170 grams of protein a day.

April 22, 2012.

I'm starting the 5/3/1 Powerlifting routine, and today was one of the best and toughest workouts I've had. I felt pushed to the brink of dropping the weights and just powered through. Whole Upper Body got worked hard, and I can already tell I'm going to love this program.

Solid workout today, this 5/3/1 plan is pushing me to my quitting point and it rules. I've never worked this hard at the gym, but I can already see strength gains so I'm definitely happy with how its working out.
Today was the last day I'm in Peterborough, which means last day at the gym for a week or two. I'm heading home tomorrow and looking into the gyms close to home. Landscaping and Gym throughout the week may be the best combination for overall fitness.

I've been home for a few days now, and I've worked for two shifts. Laying sod, lifting stone, stuff rules. I don't have a lot of weight at home, so I'm doing a lot of pushups and body weight exercises, along with the barbell and 30 pound dumbbells I have. I think the barbells gets me around 80 pounds, or a little more. Which isn't too bad. I'm waiting for my first pay to come in to check out gyms. I'm hoping I have enough time in between my 12-13 hour shifts and sleeping to get there.

So a new update is in order, I ended up partially tearing a tendon in my foot last weekend while at work. So that's kept me from doing absolutely anything physical since I'm in an aircast. I'm hoping that tomorrow I can get back into some eat dumbbell exercises to see how my foot feels and hoping I can head back into work on monday. Hopefully the gym will start next week as well.

May 13, 2012.
