TigerfiercebabyThis week we still hover around 250 actually 251 with 32,8% body fat, I have hit my 10k steps and 5 miles everyday this week. I have made it to the gym a little less often but been really appreciating the rest days, I have started to feel that soreness again a little during those rest days. Weights keeping going up so that is good. If weights arent going up I get reps up. Weather is getting nice so I might add in swimming again for the off days. Food is still protein shakes and whole meals for dinner. Did a little more calories this weekend but still healthy foods. Water intake still high. Feeling much better since starting on the vitamin supplement. Vitamin B makes you pee neon yellow I learned. That is the weekly update. Thanks for reading.

Tiger eatingI seriously thought I was going to be feeling hungry all the time doing one meal but it really isn’t bad at all. I’m very happy I am doing a solid whole meal at the end of my day. My work day is alert and I don’t feel tired like I used to after lunch. I have energy through the day. My workouts feel good. When I do eat more it is too filling and so I am less inclined to do so again. Its really not that hard to keep up. My variety comes in my dinner meal. Next month I might pick up a different flavor of protein powder to add some variety but for now I am a fan of the chocolate. I have another trip to the states for fun and business in a couple weeks. Going to need to pack some powder then to keep me on the straight and narrow. The vitamins have probably helped a bit too. Who knew feeding your body the appropriate things could make you feel better?

Drinking TigerFirst day of protein shake breakfast, lunch and then a square meal for dinner then a protein shake before bed. I was feeling tired or week. I wasnt feeling hungry. I didnt want to kill anyone. This could probably work. Day 2 begins in the gym. Was glad to be back. Tomorrow I think I will increase weights on all exercises. My muscles arent sore like they used to be when I first started working out. Not sure if that is a good sign or a bad sign.

TigerfiercebabyThis week we are down and up. Weight is down to 247 and BMI is up to 34%. I was feeling sick this weekend so I didnt work out at all and I ate crappy food. Somehow I came out down. I think that it was even though I ate crappy food I didnt eat a lot of it. Anyways new week. Going to do the replacement meals with protein shakes and eat a decent dinner each night. See how that goes. I am guessing I will be grumpy to start the week. Hoping for more sustained progress.

Drinking TigerOk, I cant seem to make gains on weight loss but I am rocking the strength training and improvements. Next week I am going to try something different. I am going to go with a breakfast lunch protein shake diet and balanced veggie and meat dinner. I want to see what results I get. So instead of supplement diet it will be a replacement diet with the protein shakes. It might not be for me but I am willing to give it a shot. MMMM mostly liquid diet.

TigerfiercebabyThis week I got back down 250lbs and maintained a 32 BMI. I realize that the amount of calories I am adding in from the protein shakes was spiking me up this week and I hit 255 at one point. So this weekend I cut back on calories in my meals. So instead of supplemental I will be looking at one of my shakes as a replacement meal. I hit the gym every day and have my rest day today which is still yoga and some body weight exercises (main reason Monday is rest day is gym is closed). I cooked and bought way too much food the week before so I am letting the leftovers carry into this week and not doing anything but veggies this week for dinners. We will see playing with calorie counting this week what results I can attain on the weight side. Hoping to see a nice downward trend start this week.

GNC1-13512494dtI was very apprehensive about using protein powder. I have no idea why. Perhaps I thought it wasn’t for me or not necessary or that it would taste nasty. After doing some googling and a good bit of research plus speaking to friends who are trainers or train I felt perhaps I should be taking protein powder as a supplement. Still wasnt sure if it was going to taste nasty or not. This weekend I took the plunge and bought the smallest bag of Whey Protein I could. Which is fricken expensive. The next morning before my workout I made a shake. Damn that was tasty. After my workout I made another shake. Still tasty. I immediately went out and bought the big container of Whey protein. I also got a discount card because dame that shit is expensive, So I give the chocolate flavor 2 thumbs up. I will try out some of the other flavors as I go on for variety but as I am a creature of habit I will probably stick with chocolate. It will be a few weeks before I will really say it is helping with my weight training. I think it is but will need to see results.

This week I saw a little improvement. I weighed in at 251 and a BMI of 32%. Down a pound and same BMI. Visually I notice different shape and definition. I got fitted for some bespoke clothing yesterday and looking in the mirror while I was being measured I could see the change. Slow progress but only 3 weeks in. I did pick up some protein powder and a shaker. Also bought a generic Magic Bullet for making smoothies. I was surprised the taste was not awful and actually pretty good. Looking forward to seeing how this all continues to shape up. Cooked some awesome Mutton Masala yesterday which my house guests enjoyed. Always a nice feeling to get positive feedback on cooking. I cooked up the Mutton Masala and some chicken marinaded in Italiandressing. I have chicken livers and bacon but no Rumaki. I will try to make that tonight. That is the update. Riveting I know.
