    lulz. it ain't all it's cracked up to be, i assure you.
    if i could eat this many dirty cals and get away with it..well, that certainly may be a different story.

    uhh..forgot to weigh myself this morning..

    making a change in immediate postWO nutrition, as i experiment with ways to get my cals up at strategic points.
    it's now ~725cals, same things i been using + now a bowl of fruit loops, so ~115c/55p.

    breakfast (doubles as preWO meal) also a bit larger these days, neighborhood of 750-800cals..
    again, these #s are being played with continually.


    training today:
    upper body, veering off the plan as it's last day before next stage starts on MON (which is bench + bent rows).
    so, started with some standing military press BB - 5 sets, started 135x12, worked up to 215x4 -- felt good thruout.
    followed with couple sets hi-pulls, some standing BB curls, reverse BB curls, then close-grip bench and finished with decline skullcrushers (very light on these - no issues).
    pretty happy with the day..pace was picked up, less rest/quicker set tempo - the sort of parameters i prefer and naturally thrive on.
    i think i'm ready for some full-blown action.

  10. Damn impressive with the standing presses of 215x4! That is serious business to be pushing that kind of weight overhead. The stabilization necessary is crazy. I truly am awed by that champ. Food note..I pushed my cals total a bit last night as well. A couple In-n-Out double doubles found their way onto my plate. Those are my favorite food vice and I savor every bite. Have a good one young man.

  11. oooo in-n-out double doubles - a man after my own heart.
    sounds good Joe!
    appreciate the feedback on presses - i don't consider it that strong, but let me say it was an effort, moreso than my bench the other day.
    still - upperbody strength has always been my strong point..funny thing is, i'm not a whole lot stronger on seated press than i am on standing.
    have a good one yourself!

  12. I wish we had in and out in Chicago!

    5oz turkey breast
    2oz mesquite sliced turkey breast
    2oz black forest ham
    1/2 cup black beans
    5oz romaine salad + 1 tbs bleu cheese + ranch croutons
    dessert (not pictured) - 2 regular-sized white cheddar rice cakes + 1 reg-sized caramel rice cake
    ~625cals

    packing in dem cals again today, keeping it clean....

  15. It all looks so good! Tomorrow I will be doing some cooking for the week. Today was a good day of grub for me. Turkey spaghetti, lean pork loin chops, baked beans, hominy protien shake with pb in it. Excellent grub.

    It is a grain, made from maize and can be a cereal or if soaked instead of beaten to remove the husk is basically a giant soft kernel of corn like substance it is what grits are made from.


    See nutritional info from Livestrong below.

    Hominy is a grainy breakfast food made from kernels of maize. Hominy can be eaten on its own or used as a side dish. Hominy can be prepared relatively quickly and is rich in carbohydrates, so it can be a suitable substitute for oatmeal or other energy-rich breakfast items. Hominy offers a number of nutritional benefits, so it might be a good food to add to your diet. Check product labels, as nutrition facts might vary among brands.
    Low Calorie Content

    Hominy can be nutritionally beneficial because it is low in calories. Each 1/4 cup serving of hominy contains just 130 calories. This amount is lower than many other breakfast foods, such as a 71 g bagel, which contains 270 calories.

    High Carbohydrate Content

    Hominy is rich in carbohydrates, with 29 g in each 1/4 cup serving. Carbohydrates provide your body with energy for sports and other activities, and the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academies suggests eating at least 130 g of carbohydrates daily. Because of the high carbohydrate content, hominy can be beneficial as a pre-workout meal.
    No Saturated Fat

    Hominy is a low-fat food, as it contains just 1 g of total fat in each 1/4 cup serving. Additionally, hominy contains no saturated fat. Saturated fat can increase your cholesterol levels and promote a higher risk of heart disease. For this reason, the American Heart Association recommends eating fewer than 16 g of saturated fat each day.
    No Sugar

    If you're looking for an alternative to high-sugar breakfast cereals, hominy can be a good choice, as it does not contain sugar. Keeping your sugar intake low can be beneficial, as too much sugar can promote tooth decay and an increased risk of heart disease.
    Iron Content

    Hominy is nutritionally beneficial because each 1/4 cup serving contains 8 percent of the daily suggested intake of iron. Iron is a mineral that is essential for proper transport of blood, DNA creation and energy metabolism, among other roles.

  19. okay, it's what i was thinking it was.
    (i had hominy once..ewww not a fan)
    what confused me was the 'protein' part, because i knew it was high in carbs - so, you put hominy in with protein?
    and then pb too?
    huh. well i guess i have some weird-sounding shakes too so i'll keep my mouth shut here.


  20. looky what i found fellas..thought it would go good while i'm watching Dexter tonight.



    i also found these - my kids will enjoy them.



    (i'm sure i'll have to taste test to make sure they're okay for them)

  21. Oh for sure! You can never have too much quality control now-a-days!! Lmao

    Awwww. There is a missing comma there. Punctuation makes all of the difference. The hominy was with the dinner. The pb and protein was in the shake. I was not a fan of hominy until my wife made it for me with some seasoning and it was pretty good. She likes it a lot, so I eat it with her when she has it on my higher carb days, one so none goes to waste and 2 it is not a bad source of carbs. One of my current favorite shakes is cake batter protein with peanut butter and unsweetened shredded coconut flakes. I plan to make one with some fresh pineapple and coconut soon but haven't got around to it.

  27. ^^

    lil pic from today.



    workout was solid (if not a lil painful from joints being tight from food overload hehehe), strength fair.
    once again loved the quicker pace (45-60sec rest) of today's set-up.

    10x3, 45/60sec rest
    A1) bb bench
    A2) bb bent rows

  28. Nice were you basically using the same weight or is your press much stronger than your pull?

  29. yes, i used same weight today.
    i would say tho my bench eventually is stronger than my pull.
