I used a barbell,15 kg
Post workout lunch:
Green apple,5 poached eggs with cinnamon on the whites and sea salt on the yolks.Handful of almonds
Snack:2 green apples with honey and cinnamon
Dinner:Chicken,beef(around 200 g in total) with a lot of lettuce
The workout was taken from a recent article and thought that I should give it a try.The writer proposed to start with 22 kg or something like that but I thought that it might be a little bit too much.When I finished the set I was somewhat disappointed so I decided to do one more round.I was satisfied Next time 20 kg!
OK dietary like,today I was challenged...The post workout lunch was not enough and I got a craving for some sweets that we have in our house...It seems that these kind of workouts really trigger hunger....I was able to fight it with apples and high quality honey!Yay!The cinnamon and salt idea on the eggs was really nice!!!I will do it more often!I will also try more spices,who knows...
I am going out with some friends for a drink..I will try to keep it simple,drink a beer and snack(if I am really hungry)on some cheese or nuts...There might be some interesting people there so I would really like it if I could strike up a conversation instead of eating like I was in starvation mode...
27 more days to go!On a side note,it seems that my house only lacks nuts and veggies...I have eggs,sardines and salmon so I will be able to stay alive for tomorrow as well and avoid binge eating...If I feel ok I will also do some tabata squats and a snatch protocol that I found!
OK,after 3 hours only of sleep I find myself having a small pain in my heart and a GIGANTIC desire to eat any sweet on sight....Yesterday I kept it really good.2 beers,cheese,some nuts and sausages(although I dont know the carb content).I really hope that I can find the courage to say NO to the crappy food.I keep reminding myself that this is not an actual need but simply signs my sleep deprived body sends....
And yes "failing to plan is planning to fail"....I ate some sweets and grains and I am not proud...The thing is that I did not eat to a point that I would feel like I was dying.So anyway today I am gonna go and get as much meat,fruits,veggies I can so that I will be prepared!
