I really think i should lay off the cardio...and i am also leaning towards skipping the contest this sept and focusing on gaining some quality mass for next spring (without the fat of course). at this point ill still be small cause ill have to diet down in just a few weeks, and ill have to spend a ton of money on training and food and supplements. i really think i would be happier and healthier if i just focus on eating good clean stuff in moderate portions 6 times a day and training hard...and returning to normalcy and also focusing on some other goals which includes stuff for work and possibly personal trainer cert. and going to some you pick farms and visiting family and experimenting with healthy cooking. i also really want to be able to eat the veggies from our garden this summer. to have to be dieting during tomato season would be just cruel. with all that said i just dont know if i can fully devote myself to another diet and contest this year, doesnt seem worth it. my goal for this year was one contest...and i dont want to half ass another contest just out of obligation and sacrifice my physical and mental wellbeing. but i think that it will seem worth it next year...with 5-10 more lbs of lean mass and likely only having to diet for 12 weeks as opposed to 18. and also having that much more knowledge and experience..
Meal 1: 1/4 cup soy milk, 1/4 cup oats, 1/2 scoop pea protein, 1 banana
Meal 2: apple, 2/3 scoop pea protein, 1 banana, 1 tb pb
meal 3: 1/4 cup walnuts, 1/6 cup golden cous cous, 1 peach, 1 banana. impulse banana, bumping up this meal to 460 calories...but i did cardio after and also figured that today is leg day.
Meal 4: soy bean spaghetti, 1 tb pb, 8 brussell
Meal 5: 1/2 pack tofu, 1 cup broccoli, 1 tb pb
Meal 6: 20 almonds, 1/4 cup soy milk, 2 tb pb
