Well, today's total will come to 416g of protein.
Total calories are 2100.
So, yeah, I'm at practically 80% protein intake. I'm definitely going to have to drop that abit. Will switch things up tomorrow. I'll drop some shrimp from my omlettes, and remove a half a scoop of protein powder from here and there. I'll see if I can drop it down to about 300g and keep the carbs at around 100g.
Achhhh so.Less than 3 weeks from the contest now. Getting nervous.
Energy levels have been pretty low. I've been having stomach upset lately; I think it's gas though. My protein intake is still through the roof.
I just can't seem to get myself to drink enough water. It's a problem I am going to HAVE to address immediately. Speaking of which, I think I'll go drink some now.
Man that is TOUGH. I feel for ya. You really showed your dedication though when you crawled to the kitchen and got your chicken and oats good going.Things are sucking hard.
This weekend was SUPPOSED to be a refresher. All I was SUPPOSED to do was workout in the morning on Saturday, watch Perfect Posing, practice some posing, get to sleep early.
Then Sunday I was SUPPOSED to workout early, ractice more posing, and once again get to sleep early.
But NOOOOOOO, that can't happen, can it. NOOOO.
Saturday morning my stomach cramped up so bad I couldn't even move. No idea why. I literally had to crawl out of bed to get to the kitchen. Couldn't even stand up. My girlfriend had already left for work so I was just stuck there on the floor. After about a half hour I forced myself to stand, grabbed some fridged chicken, poured a half cup of oats on it, and forcefed myself.
Then I crawled to the livingroom and rested on the couch. I say rested, not slept because the pain kept me awake.
The rest of the day was more of the same. Couldn't workout, couldn't do anything. To top it off, the pain kept me up until like 3AM.
Sunday my stomach was feeling marginally better. However instead of getting to do anything that I had planned, my gf's parents came to visit. There went the entire day. To make matters worse, they took us out to eat. I sat there and ordered nothing. They kept asking me "Why don't you order an omlette or something, or maybe some chicken?" Sayign things like "oh come on, on meal off the plan isn't going to kill you." They even asked if I wanted a slice of pie and some ice cream.
*sigh* If only they knew just how cruel they were being.
I forced myself to workout on Sunday afternoon. It was a halfassed workout though.
If you are wondering NO I DIDN'T TAKE PICTURES. STOP ASKING. I'LL TAKE THEM WHEN I TAKE THEM AND NOT A MOMENT SOONER.
Sorry. I'm cranky. I'm tired. I'm ill. I'm depleted. I'm hungry. And to top it off, this week I have training each day until 5PM which means I won't get home until 7:30PM. That means I can't workout in the evening which means I'll have to pack 5 meals each day, and I'll have to workout at the crappy company gym at 6AM or thereabouts.
I'd really like to kill someone about now. Just wrap my hands around their throat and squeeze until their eyeballs pop out of their sockets.
I already DID change my diet, dude. I change it every few days now.wow 80% - I would recommend you go down to 55%, eat lots of greens so you don't get constipated. Also, are you taking digestive enzymes - they may help. Good luck to you.
Unless they have a fire at will law like they do in my state then they cant fire you as long as you get a satisfactory performance rating, so getting all the work done and turned in (reports?) then they have no reason to fire you. Also if you work 40 hours a week then they cant really say anything, just make sure the guy that rates you is happy. Before they ask you to work over, sneak out like Peter Gibbons tried to do on Office Space, just my 2 cents.God, I just want this to end already.
I need to find a job in my area. This commute is adding way too much stress to an already stressful prep. Thank goodness I'm taking vacation next week; there's no f'in way I'd stay sane otherwise.
I swear, these past couple weeks I feel like everything is falling apart, like all my plans are unravelling. And its all because of asshats here at work forcing me to do unpaid overtime. They have no consideration for my personal life whatsoever. They think salaried employee means 24/7 employee. Screw them. I'm so unbelievably sick of this crap.
Unfortunately where I work operates differently from the environment you describe.Unless they have a fire at will law like they do in my state then they cant fire you as long as you get a satisfactory performance rating, so getting all the work done and turned in (reports?) then they have no reason to fire you.

This is true I also forgot that they will blackball you also in the industry, I wish you well Null.Unfortunately where I work operates differently from the environment you describe.
While there is a "corporate citizenship" policy which mandates that managers compensate all employees for overtime whether with extra time off or with extra pay, they do not follow it. It's one of those sets of rules they have in place only officially to look good. In reality, if you speak up, you find yourself given tasks and objectives that are not possible to meet. The end result is you don't meet those objectives and now they have a legitimate excuse to can you.
The other option they take is to restructure the organization to eliminate your position.
Oh and then theres the "make your life a living hell so you quit" tactic.
Bottom line: I can't raise a stink and I have to follow orders if I want to keep my job. It's a good job that pays really well. There are rough times and some mismanagement, but most importantly there's opportunity for a way up that I see in front of me. More importantly I just bought a house and I can't afford to be out of work.
The commute sucks, but jobs around where I live doing basically the same thing pay half as much money.
How much do I plan on eating? As much as I can.keep it up null. i know how you feel. im getting cravings like nothing else right now, and i'm 1 week 6 days out. havent started my depletion yet even.
how much are you planning to eat during your **** load? all of what you bought?!?! that would be insane
That, and your body odour will become very unpleasant, strong and sour from all the nitrogen being released from all that gluconeogenesis... :blink:19% calories from fat is very low for a almost nocarb diet. Heck, it's low PERIOD but even moreso when doing lowcarb. Lowcarb doesn't mean pure protein. It means you substitute carbs for fat and a LITTLE protein.
If you eat too much protein on a low carb diet, I would be willing to wager you might wind up sacrificing some protein to glucogenesis due to the absence of fat.
