Day 1 (8/6/2013)
Breakfast: coconut Larabar
Lunch: leftovers from dinner (one slice meatza), 2 oz(?) chicken breast piece, 1 uncured grass fed organic hot dog, bell pepper slices, carrots, grape tomatoes, kalamata olives
Snack: 1 cup coconut water, 4(?) macadamia nuts
Dinner: broccoli, turkey roast thing (it was 3 lbs, I probably ate 3/4 lbs. First turkey I've ever cooked, and it turned out great--used butter, ghee, garlic, olive oil, salt, rosemary, and thyme. Somehow managed to cook it in the toaster oven.)
It's difficult to get used to meals that large but they're more satisfying than multiple small carb boosts throughout the day, and I need to keep myself eating more if I want to gain muscle. My problem is more likely to be grazing and under-eating than eating too much at a meal. I'm pretty sure that the only way I'd be capable of gaining more fat would be skipping workouts and eating processed crap and carbs, so I shouldn't worry about eating too much.
Workout: early morning (pre-breakfast) heavy lifting, 20 minutes, two circuits. I'm currently on incline push-ups, 2 leg chair assisted pull-ups, bench squats, and full plank on forearms. Was able to do five more push-ups than Friday, but still nowhere near my goal of 50. Almost moved up a level in squats though. Maybe next time or so.
Also went on a 15 minute walk outside.
Other: finished reading the book I started yesterday. Also finished the last of my summer assignments, which I had put off due to lethargy that is now gone. Didn't go outside besides the walk. I had to practice parking a car for half an hour since my license test is coming up next month. Had some stomach upset, nothing major. My acne appears to be clearing up.
