    Muffins???? Please do give us the recipe for a muffin that contains no starch or sugar. These look super yummy. Although there's no way I could do daily the calories you are doing. But I am occasionally missing that "starch-looking" thing. Not much, not enough to go way off track. But these things look so yummy....

    Sorry, the only muffins I make are the egg and veggie ones shown earlier in the thread.
    Don't know how you could make real muffins without flour of some sort, rice or nut, but both would be carb heavy, so it would depend on your goals I guess.

    I've made a nice banana bread with almond flour in the past that would make good muffins, but not something that you'd want to eat regularly.

    Breakfast this morning; delicious New Zealand lamb and veggies, topped off with a nice free range egg.

    Brekkie was so good yesterday that I had the same for lunch :-)

    Family dinner party last night, lots of curries and rice. We took a couple of beer can chickens, one cooked with chipotle seasoning and the other with an Indian spice mix.

    Did treat myself to some desert though, fried banana and ice cream, and a little suji cake.

    Brekkie today was leftover chicken and cauliflower, yellow bell pepper and mushrooms sauted in butter, topped off with a few slices of avocado. Not as colourful as yesterday, but just as tasty :-)

    So 9 days into my 100 push up / 50 pull up challenge (I.e. working up to knocking out 100 in one hit) and here are the numbers so far:

    Max push ups: 45 (up 10 on 9 days ago)
    Max pull ups: 16 (up 6 on a week ago)

    Chuffed :-)

    Obviously, if you read through the rest of this journal you'll know that I've pushed my pull ups higher in the past, but I've let them slide in the past 6 months or so.

    I've been using the 100 push up workout ( one hundred push ups ) app on my iPhone for both, just halving the numbers of exercises for the pull-ups.
    Doing the workouts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so far have done 483 push-ups and roughly half the number of pull-ups, as I've been rounding down to a whole number for pull-ups :-)

    Also working on front levers on a couple of other days a week.

    I started on week 3 level 3, which was fine until I got to day 2, then I struggled to make the last set. Only by a couple, but repeated day 2 a couple of times the dropped back a week.

    Give it a whirl :-)

    Didn't really feel like I got much if a workout yesterday, so about 5 mins after doing the max tests I hit them again.
    45 press ups again, but only managed 10 pull-ups.

    This morning I finally pulled my finger out and went to a hardware store to pick up the gear to make some PVC pipe parrallettes:
    http://baye.com/diy-parallettes/

    I've seen a lot of comments on US websites about it being so cheap to make these, well... Certainly ain't the case here in NZ.
    $45 for approx 10ft of pipe, which wasn't too bad, but then another $25 For EACH of the 4 T pieces and 4 elbows.

    Back to the drawing board on that one I think. 5 new tyres and a new exhaust trump a new toy unfortunately :-(

    My log of Push ups over the past couple weeks. Pull-ups also done straight after the push-ups at half the numbers:


    Missed today's workout due to only getting 3hrs sleep last night and a major hangover today. Was a good night, but way too much tequila involved :-)
