I have been on a bit of a transformation and hope to continue doing so. I did start a Journal in January but became a bit busy with work - I did however continue on with the exercises and the eating (somewhat!)
My overall goal is to become fit enough to open a personal training/fun gym for young people to teach them the habits and knowledge needed to keep fit and healthy. Something that is not being done at schools around Australia, and it really shows.
So step 1 - get fit!
I was very fit in high school, but like most people after losing the structure and not having knowledge I lost the rythym (not to mention galndular fever which I am still battling 5 years later!)
Old Stats '01
Height - 171cm
Weight - 63kg
Body Fat - 6.5% (I was a runner)
Old stats (February '06) -
Height - 173cm
Weight - 95kg
Body Fat - 25% (I put on muscle not just fat)
More recent (May '06)
Height - 174cm (yes 1 cm!!)
Weight - 82kg
Body Fat - 18%
Heigt - 180cm (I can dream right!!???)
Weight - 75kg
Body Fat - 9-11%
I wont write my weight training/cardio plan yet as I am currently recovering from viral menningitis and from glass lodged in my eye!! (Yes both happened at the same time - how lucky is that?!) So I have been bed ridden for 2 weeks and will take a little more time to recover.
Anyway my meal plan (which I would like criticism on) as is follows;
4 x Eggs (1 Yolk) (I add pepper and soemtimes chesse for flavour - 20g)
2 x Toast (Healthy bread!)
1 x Orange Juice
1 x Multivitamin
1 x 150g Tuna
1 x Cup Broccilli
1 x 150g Chicken Breast (Cooked in tuscan seasoning!)
1 x Small salad with no fat dressing
1 x 150g Tuna
1 x Small Salad with no fat dressing
1 x Half Steak 200g (Pepper falvouring or lemon indian spice)
1 x mixed steamed veges 200g + Chilli Sauce
Meal 6 - Post work out
1 x Double Protein Drink (100% whey which = 50g protein)
1 x Flavoured oatmeal
+ Possible fruit if I feel like it
Also I realise that maybe more eggs in the morning would be better BUT;
1. Eggs are $4.50-$5 a dozen!
2. Egg White only costs EVEN MORE then normal eggs!
One question about the above plan though - is it ok to mix the protein in milk? I thought that was how it was done, but reading some info on here it seems as though that is NOT they way.
'Til next time,
