I'm a little disappointed with myself today for not looking closer at what stuff i was adding to my lunch and ended up going over the 50 carb limit I had been really hoping not to go over at all for the first month. What did I learn? I really only have about 30 disposable carbs because of the protein shakes that i consume before and after. Once I've completed this workout for the first week, I'm not sure whether or not I will continue with the shakes. Also, despite being a non-starchy vegetable, onions are pretty high in carbs. Also, be wary of what peppers you buy as 100g of dried Ancho peppers would set you back a full 51 carbs (0g of sugar and 22g of fiber). I guess i was glad i didn't actually have those, though i suppose I could have used the fiber.
Day 8 Jan 25 (a lots of eggs and poultry day)
B - 4 eggs with 30g of smoked cheese, 2 sausage patties from McDs (went with friends, got a double sausage muffin, tossed the muffin), coffee
PreW - meal replacement shake (no coconut this time)
PostW - double serving of protein
L - 200g of cured turkey, 5 eggs, course ground mustard, hot mustard, and wasabi
D - 8chicken wings (the mini drumstick kind), 3 eggs
Work out (Arms): close grip bench, 21's (7 bicep curls, from top to midway, followed by 7 from bottom to midway, then 7 full bicep curls without resting), chin ups (or in my case, close grip pull downs, palms facing me), skull crushers, tricep pull downs to failure
(shoulders tomorrow, back Friday)
I decided to remove even more carbs from today because of the slip up yesterday. After looking back at how much I ate, I was never stuffed, but I should have not gone for the dozen eggs just to go for it. I ended up right at the high end of the acceptable calorie spectrum that i should be at when I'm trying to keep it below 2500. I'll need to add a few more vegetables to fill me up though i'm having a hard time trying to find something other than broccoli to fill that role. i suppose a cabbage and pepper stir fry using the leavings from the wings from tonight might work out. Not as many carbs and fairly filling.
I really need to keep drinking more water and fluids. I've lost too much weight for it to be healthy weight just yet. I know a lot of people say ditch the scales, but this is one reason I'm keeping mine. If I've lost a lot of weight in one day, I try to think back to see what have i expelled compared to what I've consumed. After weighing myself I can look back to see if it was lack of water, or the extra long trip to the bathroom (sorry if you're reading this while eating). If you don't have a problem like that, getting obsessed over a number won't help you very much.
