Day 5 & 6, Plus weekend

Hey everyone, Sorry for the lack of updates. I had a pretty eventful yet busy weekend. But you guys should all be proud of me because i completed my first real week of working out and dieting and continuing strong into this week. Lets get right into it

Meals :

Day 5

Missed breakfast and lunch again, but when i got back from work i was able to have some chicken noodle soup from jess. Madd props to her, it was delicious and very healthy. And then at night i had Kiku for dinner.  My brother was nice enough to take me out to dinner for my birthday. I mean it doesn’t following my diet to the teeth, but i had hibachi with filet mignon and some sushi. Besides the msg, i consider it to be a very good meal.

Weekend

Again i missed breakfast because of how busy it was at the restaurant, but i did manage to grab some scramble eggs with some veggies before i left work. At night i cheated a little and had don katsu. I know i shouldn’t have but i couldn’t resist. Technically its not fast food, so its not too bad… I know i’m trying to give myself a get out of jail free card =P Maybe i should have at least one cheat meal. Of course best case scenario i wont use it, but if i with a bunch of friends, maybe i can pull it out. Just a thought =P And finally on Sunday, missed breakfast, finished my left over don katsu with some extra stuff from bartolomeo del in englewood. I had a nice panini and some macaroni salad. And for dinner i had soup, and finish my left over lunch. As you can see my stomach definitely has shrunk since i don’t crave for a full meal, and i get full pretty quickly. So glad i’m seeing some progress in my diet

Day 4 of work out has been completed. Seriously i feel as if this week wont end. I also feel as if my muscles wont heal… I’m getting more and more sore each day. Its impossible to fall asleep in bed every night too. Every time i toss and turn, it burns! Anyways todays workout wasn’t my best, but i got the job done. Also my diet has been getting worse and worse. Well here goes nothing :

Overall it was a good work, still trying to figure out my diet plan, but i’m assuming its working out because after every meal i get really hungry =( Speaking of which i’m starving right now =( Its also the worst when your starving and watching the food network channel. Last night i ended up calling it a night at 8 30. Partially is because my body was shutting down and also i was ridiculously hungry. One way to feed that hunger is going to bed =) anyways. its getting late. Yes 11 o clock is late, plus i’m getting hungry again =P I’m gonna call it a night. Already finished half of my first week and going strong. Lets hope i can continue this till friday. God bless everyone =)

I do have some good news though, Finally i got a call back for an interview for this monday for Acura DCH. I’m pretty excited and nervous all at the same time. God is truly amazing. God bless everyone, i’ll keep ya’ll posted =)

Day 1

After turning the age of 23, I learned that this is going to be a big year for me. I mean turning twenty three isn’t a big deal or anything, but i feel that God has a lot of things planned for me. I’m really excited what he has in store for me and how he is going to use me to impact other people. First off, i know i’m a few days late on lent, but i’m gonna beginning fasting from soda and fast food. I mean there is not set rule on what is consider fast food but i’ll use my own discretion. Not only am i giving up unhealthy snacks, i’m also going to commit to going to the gym at least 5 times a week (monday-friday) hopefully. As of now things are going pretty well, but then again, its only day one. So far its been a huge success. Here is what i had today : 

So lets begin! 

Meals : 
Brunch : 2 scr eggs with tomatoes, brocoli, spinach and mushrooms with a little bit of cheese
Dinner : Pasta

Exercises : 
2 miles (16 mins)
ab work outs
bicep curls 50 lbs 12 reps 3 sets
tricep curls 70 lbs 12 reps 3 sets
bench presses 95 lbs 12 reps 3 sets

Not a bad first day, i know i’m going to feel this tomorrow but hopefully i can get over the one week hump! I still need to fix up my diet. I’m going to try to eat less but more meals in a day. I know i failed that today, but i’m still getting use to it. Man… good by junk food hello salads =(. Oh God, please help me!

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
