The quality of the food I have eaten this week could best be described as junk; however, I am hitting my calorie target and yesterday I even met my protein intake despite having 2 slices of pizza, a donut, and a chocolate mango stick...I filled my day up with chicken/brocolli when I got home last night at 11pm.

Peaked at my weight this morning and I'm still exactly at 173.8 so the week is not even over yet. Logically, I know if I'm hitting my targets I'll keep dropping fat but it does feel odd to be eating the way I am and still making progress. I have had bad planning this week but I'm still counting the calories/protein.

I'm looking to improve the food quality back starting today.

Corporate going-away lunch...tough to estimate calories once again.

Coffee w/ Protein - 225 cal, 20 Protein
Pasta/Chicken Meal? - 1000 cal, 20 protein (just guessing real high to be conservative...)
Left to eat - 575 calories, 110 protein

So basically if I want to play it real safe I need to eat real lean chicken and brocolli for dinner. Secondly, I heard of this thing called "muscle egg" I'm going to look into...

Today is a bit easier so far.

Breakfast - Rockstar energy drink, 40 cal, 0 protein
Lunch - Chicken Salad, 245 calories, 50 protein

I have much room for dinner today. Still want to focus on lean meats and veggies.

^^^
Didn't come home till late so I quickly threw together a peanut butter sandwich, a can of black beans, and 4 eggs and than drank roughly 4 cups of skim milk. Felt satiated and than ran some numbers..turns out this gets me very close to my macros. This also looks pretty cheap budget wise minus the energy drink of course.

Excel did not paste right...first number is calories. Second is protein

Rockstar 20 0.0
200 grams of Chicken in Salad 250 50.0
4 eggs 280 24.0
Can of Black Beans 350 24.5
Goya Seasoning 50 0.0
4 cups of skim milk 360 32.0
Peanut Butter Sandwich 420 13.0
Totals 1730 Calories 143.5 Protein

Weigh-in tomorrow.

Rough week diet wise I believe and personally. Yesterday I was ganged up on and assaulted on a train :/ Came home late after filing police report. Very lucky to not have serious injuries. Just my left eye a little swollen but otherwise no damage.

Needless to say diet did not hold up. I got McDonald and Ice Cream to feel better lol...I'll write that down on my list of stressors to look out for - don't get assaulted. I was just sitting there minding my own business; apparently random acts of violence are increasing in my area. Probably not a bad idea to start driving.

Anyone, that is all I will say about this since this isn't a blog. Today I was on track for my diet. Hit my CAL/PRO perfectly.

Category 2 RFL Run- 188.6lbs - 173.6lbs
Week 0- 179.8 lbs
Week 1 - 173.0 lbs (-6.8lbs)
Week 2 - 173.0 lbs (-0.0lbs)


Considering what happened last week; I'd consider maintenance a win here. Moving on and working for better results in week 3. Sticking with 1800 calories daily.

I have class today which means I won't be home for dinner so I took in a protein shake this morning and upped the chicken in my lunch.

Fish Oils - 40 CAL
Tuna Can - 70 CAL, 16 PRO
Ritz Crackers - 80 CAL, 0 PRO
300 grams Chicken Salad - 453 CAL, 90 PRO
2 cups of milk in whey protein - 300 CAL, 42 PRO

Calories: 943 CAL , 150 PRO

Aiming really low today on the calories. This will create a 200 calorie buffer over the next 4 days (1800-1000 = 800 / 4 days left in the week = 200 extra per day).

Doing good this week.

Peaked at my weight this morning...was 170.8 lbs. So very close to breaking the 170s. Perhaps last week I just held water weight but I actually dropped a good amount of fat? Who knows...part of dieting is trusting the system and trusting the science behind fat loss and looking at trends for measurement.

I need to workout - have not done that in a while. Diet so far today:
Also ate Sardines for the first time ever in my life....not bad. Used Ritz crackers though.

Rockstar - 40 CAL
Fish Oil - 40 CAL
Sardines - 191 CAL, 23 Protein
Crackers - 220 CAL, 1 Pro
Honeycrisp Apple - 80 CAL
Chocolate - 50 CAL
Chicken Salad - 453 CAL, 90 PRO
Calories: 1074, 114 Pro
Left: 726 CAL, 36 PRO

Push-ups - 20, 18, 16, 8, 10 (with my toddler on my back for the last set haha).
Squats - Bodyweight Tabata method. I got 106 squats I think.

Well yesterday did not go well. Went to outback with my wife and lost control a little. I estimate conservatively I ate 2900 calories over the course of the day. Really odd because when I was there I was just like thinking "get the salad, get the salad get the salad"....than nope 14 oz Ribeye lol. My body was just craving it bad.

Therefore, 2900-1800 = 1100.

To get back on track I have to drop an extra 1100 calories today: 1800 - 1100 = 700

So basically I'm doing an RFL day today to get back in line. 150 grams of protein = 600 calories, 120 calories for fish oil / veggies = 720. Will add a bit of cardio because why not its Friday.
