November 24th - February 15th
(For ease of reading purposes, I will just "edit" this post instead of replying to my own thread)
INTRODUCTION: First off guys, my names Darrell. I'm from Houston, Texas and currently stuck in miserable Shreveport, LA. Being stuck in this place per job reasons is probably the biggest reason I've stacked on the weight lately, but thats going to change. I put in my 2 month notice and headed home. "Well D what is it that you do in shreveport?" I'm a general manager over an 18 wheeler repair/maintenance facility. We work on TRUCKS. I'm just relocating back to Houston to be a TECH. Hell its so busy in Houston I can make more with the step down (commission based).
Goals: I want to be ~10% body fat in 12 weeks. I'm Guessing I'm 20-26% currently. I was down to 18% and making great progress. (I used to be 260lbs, got down to 185 in a years time frame) So I'm familiar with the dedication it takes to get there.
NOTE:I will update this Log DAILY on things such as weight, mood, my gym experience that day, what kind of cardio/lifting I did, how well I'm sticking to my diet. It should be exciting, and should be a roller coaster of events, but hopefully at the end of this ride I'll have a lot more space between me and the safety harness if you get my drift.
I will also put up a WEEKLY picture to show my progress, It will containt a frontal & profile view.
I just created this log for me to better stick to my program. I've done something similar in the past, but was iffy to post pics. However I know what I look like underneath the fat an so should you. I'm going to post an OLD pic from exactly 11months ago. AS WELL as today's 2 weekly photos.
Food (so far):Breakfast, 450calories: 2 corn tortillas (200cals) with fajita chicken(120cals) 20g protein,Non fat chese(60 cals) 8g protein, Cottage cheese on top (60cals) 15g protein.
(I stick to non fat foods or low fat. The corn tortillas have alot of carbs but since they are made from corn, It's derived of maltodextrin, one of the hardest carbs to breakdown. Combine it with some sort of whole protein (chicken) the carbs become trapped in the glycogen nets of the protein, therefore slowing the process some more.)
Supps: I take venom in the morning, to curb the appetite. I also take 1 scoop, I beleive thats half serving, of cytogainer. Its chalked full of maltodextrin and also has 8g sugar. combined with the 30g protein or so it is, It makes for a great post workout shake. Anyone familiar with Insulin rush?
Workout: I'm headed to the gym right after this. I'm going to be doing a core type 5x5 workout where I hit the major muscles hard. Major muscle workouts promote fat loss. "Oh D don't you know more reps is better for fat loss". Anykind of weight training is awesome for fat loss. My workout however is more dynamic than that. I will hit the MAJOR muscle groups with the 5x5 strength workout. THEN on the secondary muscle groups such as biceps and lateral pectoralis I will do a 2x12 3x8 type workout. After its all said and done, I will run 1 mile afterwards. And on my OFF days, I will run 3 miles. ( I may be fat but I can run 3 miles in 36 minutes still. Whats in your wallet?)
WEEKLY PICS: I will post later, I need 50 posts first lol ... coming soon.
