JB's journal...

Postby jaybee » Sun Jun 14, 2009 5:21 pm

Hey All,

So this is my journal for the next 3 months. I wanted a way to drive myself to hit my goals, so this seemed like a good fit!

My starting stats according to my tanita scales are:
    Weight: 105.1kg
    Body Fat: 26.6%
I’m hoping to drop my body fat around the 22% mark and to get my weight around 95kg or so.

Biggest challenge I think will be morning cardio. I hate it, but I’m going to do everything in my power to not sleep through my alarm and get up to either go for a walk or ride an exercise bike! I’ve always had issues with overeating the wrong foods at nighttime due to either boredom, or being weak willed, or a combination of both! So I really need to keep on top of that too.

Exercise Plan
    Mon-Sat mornings: 30-45m cardio, run/walk/ride/swim
    Mon: Basketball
    Tue: Tennis
    Wed, Thu, Sat: Weights
    Sun: Rest!

For food, I’ll generally have a smoothie and some yogurt/almonds for brekky. I usually have two salads at work with tuna, cottage cheese or boiled eggs. For dinner I’ll usually have fish with some vegetables. After weights I’ll always have a post workout shake.

Any questions/pointers/cc are welcome. :D

Have you tried to lose weight before? Have you got a friend/partner/personal trainer helping you out on this?

Nah, just me and years of having a severe complex about my weight.. though i could probably rope a friend who really needs to drop some weight into it..

Generally i make all these grand plans and within a week give up, so i'm hoping that keeping a journal in a like minded community will help with my motivation :D

Day 1!

Food:
Brekky: Banana protein smoothie, piece of toast w/ natural peanut butter
Lunch: Cottage cheese w/ carrot/capsicum/mixed greens
Arvo snack: Got a coffee, was flat out, busy day (was skim milk though!)
Before basketball: Apple, Glass of OJ
Dinner: Barrimundi and steamed veges

Exercise:

Notes:
Slept through alarm, had a rubbish sleep hence no morning cardio (not letting that happen tomorrow!)
Was flat out at work, didn't help as far as getting a decent lunch goes!
Definitely need more food for brekky

I agree with Court JB!!! Definitely need more food in there- and definitely more brekky!!! Can you fit some carbs in with lunch as well?

@ court: yeah im a guy

@ longy: yeah i know, been a hectic few days..

Day 2!

Food
Brekky: 2 slices of rye bread, some margarine, golden syrup and a banana, and a coffee
mornin tea: a coffee, stupid busy days...
lunch: chicken schnitzel w/ salad (pub farewell, nother one thursday too!)
dinner: 200g grilled chicken, 3/4 cup of rice
later tonight before bed: protein shake

Exercise

None, nada, zip, zero.. did i mention i hate busy days...

Notes

Still nowhere near enough food, Lived at work the last 2 days, should finally balance out tomorrow even though its gonna be another busssy day! guess its better than being bored at work! I also looked at my cardio.. going from nothing to 6 days a week seemed overkill, so i'm just gonna do 3 mornings a week before work and focus on improving my running!




and i know i drink too much coffee :D

How you feeling JB? Great to see you're still on track! Do you eat veggies at all? It's a good way to bulk up meals and catch up on all those vital nutrients that keep our bodies loving us :D The chicken and rice sounds good- yum!
