    You make me want to eat CC so much. But I think it will not go well with my cowmilk allergie : (
    Great that you are no longer so focussed on your weight, if you skip weighing you can always check the next day, and you have been gaining the last couple of weeks.
    Are you still doing capoeira ?

    I'm so sorry for you... Yes, I think body comp is much more important than weight : )
    I gave it up in order to hit the gym more often ; /

    @ebrady98 I hope so : 3 I got A today.. chemistry homework ! I'm pretty happy..

    Day Seventy Four

    Hello ; )

    I had to wake up at 5.45 in the morning in order to be in school at 7:15.. I really hate that. But lessons also ended earlier - at 1 o'clock. I had hour of physics during which we've been doing revision before upcoming test, later hour of polish (stressful one), hour of religion education and chemistry. I was talking to class about fats. Really interesting topic : ) Then hour of PE and Computer Science.

    I bought some gelatine today.. I found out that 1 t of raw cacao + 1 t of gelatine = gods drink. (with some stevia ofc).

    I have problems with persuading my parents to whey protein powder. They say it's chemical and it would be start of taking some drugs or other shit. I can't agree with them, but I don't want to argue also.

    Tommorow I'll have my lessons untill 4 in the afternoon. Another thing which I can't stand. Hour of Polish, English, then two PE's, Economy, Maths and History. Such a boring day.

    I hit the gym today! I was really happy with first circut, but later.. my bench started to suck. I had to make it lighter... I started with plates of 40 kg and ended with 30 kg. Idk what happened. However squat was perfect: 5 x 10 x 60 kg!

    So my workout was like:
    squats: 60 kg x 10 x 5
    bench press: 40 kg x 10, 35 kg x 10 x 2, 30 kg x 10 x 2
    bicep curl w/ barabell: 30 kg x 10 x 5
    rows w/ barabell: 30 kg x 10 x 5
    dumbbell flys: 15kg x 10 x 5
    hanging leg raises: 20 x 5

    I'm pretty happy of the results, but the bench...

    Foods today:

    breakfast:

    WP_20131016_003.jpg

    smoked chicken breast + 2 eggs + banana

    school lunch:

    WP_20131015_013.jpg

    dates + almonds

    dinner:

    WP_20131016_007.jpg

    rainbow trout + sweet potato + apple (huge one, not on photo : ( )

    supper:

    WP_20131016_008.jpg

    cottage cheese with banana, berries, dates and pear + another huge apple (not on the photo)

    Thank you for reading and have a great night! : 3

    I was curious, actually, looking at the consistency of yours, what's the fat content? Mine's "Original", macros are as follows:

    :O

    How were they? You like'em? IMO - best chip ever, beating potato and non-starchy veg by far. Kinda looks like you peeled them. What was your recipe for these?

    Enjoyment/Pleasure and Health > Strength/Functionality > Body comp.

    Not even going to put "weight" on that list since I see weight goals as pretty stupid in general unless underweight, or using it as a means to safely track body recomposition (ie, add/lose .5lb a week for optimal muscle growing/fatloss)

    I need more, too :/ Just ran out today.

    wut.

    Protein powder is basically just whey ground into a powder... It's just another protein source. Like sugar is a refined carb and butter is a refined fat, whey protein is little more than a refined protein.

    Perhaps ask them if they think your consumption of butter will turn you into a crackhead.

    Okay, I jest. If you can get some, that's great, if not, you probably don't need it - IMO, you look like you get plenty of protein anyway, arguably and most likely a lot more than necessary.

    In all honesty, I'd say it's the squat that did you in. Seriously.

    I personally bench before I squat, because squatting drains me and puts a weird pain on my left bicep (short dude problems, apparently). Maybe try that?

    But CONGRATS on the squat PR! Yoiu're doing awesome!

    That chicken breast at first glance looked like a dollop of peanut butter xD

    Dinner and supper look bloody amazing, as always. CC king strikes again!

    I haven't had figs in ages, btw. How do they compare against dates?
    Dark chocolate and coffee, running through my veins...

    I like all the same food as you do! Your menus always make me hungry. Very clean eating! Love sweet potato fries and figs. Figs are wicked expensive here, though.

    Yes I loved them! With some smoked paprika and salt : ) I just boiled them till soft and then added on pan with coconut oil : )

    How'd it go? Details!

    We're still 'friends', but close ones : 3 Walking & talking - nothing more.....yet

    It may take some time to persuade them. But I had another talk with mom today, and she said she needs more info and she will browse some websites to find it. I hope she will come across smth quite clever..

    In all honesty, I'd say it's the squat that did you in. Seriously.

    I personally bench before I squat, because squatting drains me and puts a weird pain on my left bicep (short dude problems, apparently). Maybe try that?

    But CONGRATS on the squat PR! Yoiu're doing awesome!
    Tommorow I'll squat after bench and I hope it will be better. I've read smth about programmes.. And I think about 5 x 5. Maybe it would be better : 3 But I had to learn chemistry (test tommorow) so I haven't decided yet.

    Thank you : 3 I hope it will go up soon!

    I haven't had figs in ages, btw. How do they compare against dates?
    Dates are much sweeter and don't have those funny small seeds inside : ) Figs have more "fruity" taste than dates and are lower in sugar : )

    About my cc.. I use many brands. I almost always have 4%-5% fat. But there are two options in shop. One with the liquid part, and one without. I prefer one without, because it's higher in proteins. Most often it has:
    per 100g
    18.7g protein
    4.7g fat
    3.7 carbs

    I like all the same food as you do! Your menus always make me hungry. Very clean eating! Love sweet potato fries and figs. Figs are wicked expensive here, though.
    We should cook something together : 3 Thank you for reading my journal! : D

    My brain rather likes remembering than counting : ) So I'm better in History, Biology and Polish/English : )
    Squats are my favourites in the gym just after bench, so I enjoy doing them and adding some iron on barabell : )

    I'm considering pictures, as I have some from June made on the beach in Italy. But I'm lacking on actual ones : /


    Congrats! Chemistry is a bitch :P
    And tommorow I'll have another test : / Omg...

    Did you educate them?
    I hope so! Teacher liked my speech so I think it was quite ok ; 3

    Hmm..if you don't want to argue...you could always show your research in an unbiased way. Like Shadowknight said, it's just by product of cheesemaking. Nothing chemical at all.

    I remember when I was discussing how butter is not a processed food with my dad. Technically, it is -it requires processing; however, this processing is 1. get milk 2. churn it 3. collect later. Nothing bad about it.

    You could also collect positive benefits of whey protein. As well as saving budget and helping you gain muscle mass, it also has positive health benefits. A quick google search tells me this: Whey Protein Benefits, Risks, & Top Picks - BuiltLean

    Tell them while you understand their concerns about it being a gateway drug (I think they are imaging that you'll start chugging the stuff while taking steroids and getting swole. There are negative connotations surrounding sports drinks; too right, some of them are junk. Whey isn't) you have done your research and reached the conclusion that this would aid you; also, since you care about your health, you would never take drugs or anything that would cause harm to your health. You're very intelligent, and they know that. Hopefully they'll understand.
    But they understand butter (me and dad are kerrygold lovers : P ), but they consider whey as chemistry, because it's powder and they think about some ripped guys who are 150 + kg when they hear it's name... I'll try to educate them, but it's long path..

    Nice foods again in love with the cottage cheese mixtures!
    I need some new ideas! I consider adding some strawberries and honey maybe.. But we'll see : 3

    Day Seventy Five

    I had baaad day today. Why? First of all: lessons till 4 o'clock in the afternoon. 2nd thing: it was around 10C and we went outside to play some football. And now I have sore throat. 3rd I'm FRRRREAKING OUT BEFORE TOMMOROW CHEMISTRY EXAM. Omg I didn't learn enough and I have a feeling that I won't get a good mark. Soaps & stuff. Another thing is that on Saturday I'll have to go to language school for 4 hours of English as I prepare to pass CAE. It would be good to have this paper, as it would allow me to study in UK or Australia/New Zealand.

    Foods today:

    breakfast:

    WP_20131017_001.jpg

    3 hb eggs and cottage cheese (this one w/ liquid part) with banana & frozen berries

    school lunch:

    WP_20131017_002.jpg

    two dried plums, two dried peaches, dried fig and dried pear + almonds

    dinner:

    WP_20131017_003.jpg

    chicken thighs (around 6? 7 maybe..), + grilled chillies + cauliflower + sweet potato + 2 apples (bloating ftw)

    supper (aka post kettlebell circut meal):

    WP_20131017_012.jpg
    WP_20131017_011.jpg

    cottage cheese with banana and LOAD of berries (cc without liquids --> 200g ---> 42 g of protein) + pear + apple + two cups of cocoa w/gelatin

    Hope you enjoyed pics & info : 3 Thanks for reading ; 3
