Hi, I've been reading other people's journals and I think a journal of my own will help me.
Background: I'm a female, 5'9.75", 158lbs, not sure about BF, but an online calculator put it at 25% or so. My main problem is food. I usually don't eat enough, and then I'm so hungry that I eat crap (cookies, M&M's, etc.). I must do a better job of keeping myself satisfied so that the urge to eat crap is eliminated. Also, I sometimes eat when I am bored. I need to stop that too. I am a mathematician (woo-woo), so there's not much physical activity in my job.
Goals: To lose 10-14lbs, get BF down to a leaner but still comfortable & maintainable range (any ideas what this might be? suggestions welcome).
Workout: Today's workout was 45 min cardio on the elliptical. I typically work out 5-6 times a week. Workouts usually look something like this:
M: 30-45 mins cardio + back/bi
T: 30-45 mins cardio + abs
W: 30-45 mins cardio + chest/tri
Th: 30-45 mins cardio + abs
F: 30-45 mins cardio + shoulders
Sa: 30 mins cardio + legs
Su: Free day (unless I really feel like movin')
Diet for today:
7AM: 1/2 cup (dry) oats + 2TBSP flaxmeal + 1 scoop whey +Green Tea
12PM: salad (lettuce+tomato), 5.5 oz(weight raw, baked) salmon
3PM: bag of tuna + .25Cup almonds
6PM: 2 Cups homemade turkey chili
8:30PM: 1 Cup lowfat CC
Totals: 1478cal 47F 112C 160P or in %: 3F 24C 46P
Supplements: Multivitamin, Iron (I was severely anemic about a year ago. My iron is up now, but I still take iron.)
Comments/suggestions welcome! have a marvelous day.
