Figured it was time that I make one of these. Hopefully this will be something to keep me in check. After dealing with my weight my whole life, although I have never been this big. I have decided I need to make a general change in my lifestyle. My biggest problem has always been proportions. Last week I went out and got a scale. It was kind of scary to see how much I had been eating. Just for example the chicken breast I had been eating where almost 3 times a normal serving around 9-10 oz. Now I am cutting one breast up for two separate meals. My weight as of two weeks ago was back up to 270. After a week of paying better attention and weight lifting and cardio. I am as of Friday at 264.
For todays meals I had.
Kashi cereal with skin milk. 190C/3gm. fat/36carbs/9 protein milk was 90C/0Fat/13carbs,10 protein
290C/7gm Fat/41carbs/16 protein
120cal/3 fat/22 carbs/2G protein.
Went to gym for biceps/triceps and 30 min of cardio on arc trainer average HR at 150
After gym had a protein shake. 110cal,1.5fat/2carbs/23P
For dinner had cut up zucchini,summer squash, sugar snap pea's with 1 tbls. of olive oil, with some garlic and crushed peppers. not sure of the nutrition in this. (I could not believe how fast this stuff filled me up)
My main goal is to get around 200. With my body structure I think this would be an Ideal weight. For weight lifting I really just want to keep what I have. I am more interested in being able to get faster on my bike and to become a better runner. How does this look? my typical dinners are usually baked chicken with some sort of veggie and a salad with lite dressing, lunches are either WW,lean cuisine , or chicken/tuna sandwich. Breakfast I keep pretty simple, some times I change it up with some oatmeal or better egg's, if I have time. Is their anything you would change up? Hopefully this weather will clear up so I can get back on my bike.
