Day 1: 186.6 lbs

Time for some modifications
*Still keeping up with body-weight x 8 for caloric intake.
*No more energy drinks; these cost me $2.59 a day, need room in budget to get more lean protein sources.
*Morning fruit eliminated, Banana and Apple = 105 + 55 = 160 calories. Replacing with broccoli and squash.
*Eliminating Lite Caesar Dressing = 70 calories; replacing with lime juice.
*Total calories reduced: 230 calories
* This frees up room for 230 calories / 4 = 57.5 protein.

This week I'm going to modify my diet so I can have more room for protein intake. I feel this modification is necessary as my fat loss has been slowed due to being disciplined all day just to end up breaking down at night. The increase in protein will help with satiety, prevent muscle loss, and overall will just be more efficient. Eating 80-100 grams protein a day is not cutting it (pun intended).

Day 2: 185.8 lbs.

Getting the feeling my body is being "stubborn" and holding on to water. Just going to continue being consistent and maybe I'll see a drop soon here enough. Calories were good to go yesterday.

Day 3: 187.2 lbs.

Going to lower my calories today to make up for yesterdays binge. I would like to complete a lot of my graduate homework tonight so the plan is to pull an all-nighter on it. Still looking for a good deal on some weights.

Ate quest nutrition's protein chips at work today..that was interesting. 20 grams of protein for 130 calories. Was $3.17. Probably wont' eat these again but I'm at work and feeling hungry so this was the best alternative. The plan is some steak later with broccoli and a whey protein shake will get me around 1100 calories for today. As I said earlier I'm aiming lower today to make up for yesterday.

Day 4: 185.8 lbs
Day 5: 187.8 lbs
Day 6: 190.8 lbs

That scale jump for day 6 is insane. Feeling great lately though (physically and mentally) since I have been doing cardio again and working out. I haven't been dropping fat (obviously I'm eating too much). Still debating whether I want to do purchase weights at home or get a gym membership. I am leaning back and forth.

I planted 49 square feet of Spinach yesterday. First time planting anything

Start: 190.6 lbs
Week 1 Average: 187.0 lbs
Week 2 Average: 186.34 lbs
Week 3 Average: 186.17 lbs
Week 4 Average: 187.4 lbs

First week I gained weight. After one month, I have dropped 3.2 lbs. Not the greatest progress but progress nonetheless. I know this isn't just water weight because I have had days straight where my calories were at maintenance and no increases so this seems to be actual tissue loss. Yesterday I ate at 1500 calories and today I plan to do the same. I'm ready to tackle week 5. Lastly, I discovered that Greek yogurt (vanilla from Oasis brand) mixed with vanilla whey protein (1/5 scoop) is an easy 32 grams of protein. Also 3 days straight without an energy drink. This will save money and justify purchasing more chicken. I need more protein. Hard to break this habit but I'm working it. I know that if I can get chicken at $1.99 lb I am really losing out drinking $2.74 energy drinks.

Today so far: Getting in 100+ grams protein before 1:00 pm. This is really going to help prevent evening lapses in discipline and make dinner easy to hit protein targets.

1 Cup Greek Yogurt - 120, 22 protein
1/2 Schoop Whey - 70, 10 protein
Fish Oil - 105 calories
7 oz chicken breast - 369.6, 70 grams protein
Dressing - 70 calories
Salad Components - 100 calories

Calories: 834.6, Protein: 102 so far

Really leaning towards getting a gym membership and starting StrongLifts 5x5 program. I would start small since I have not lifted in god knows how long. Perhaps I'll start the program with 95lb bench press, 135 lb squat, 45 pound overhead press, 150 pound dead lift, and 65 pound rows.
