Cutting diet day 87

January 12, 2013

It’s been awhile since I had last updated this so let me recap without boring you. I was able to get down to 142 lbs. I was sick before I got to that weight, I had the stomach virus and flu at the same time during New Year’s Eve, resulting in more weight/fat loss brining my body down t 142 lbs. I am also 12% body fat, most of my veins are very vascular now, especially when I lift weights.

Coach has finally given me back cheat meals once per week:

Today I am hovering around 143/142 lbs right now, hopefully tonight’s leg session will bring the weight down gain so by Monday the weight will get to 141 lbs. just wondering out loud but it would be crazy if I got to the 130’s weight class and still maintain my muscle, I am only 5’4 so that’s still a healthy range of weight for me, but I might still lose some muscle mass, which in my opinion is necessary to lose the belly fat once and for good. I was thinking about starting the gaining diet this week but decided to get to at least 140 lbs and see where the stomach is right then.

My coach put me on a band regiment, and its amazing, ripping the muscle fibers inlays I couldn’t with just plain old weights. Tonight’s leg session will be awesome for sure, ialready excited. Problem is that I hate doing legs at Lifetime fitness, it’s great to be a24/7 gym but their leg equipment is lacking.

Since my wife’s classes are done for a month I can work out early in the morning& do cardio before leaving for work at 9:20AM. Problem is my wife wants me to stay up & watch movies,but I try to doze off at 12AM always. But then I cannot get up early enough for AM cardio on my off days. I will try and sleep extra early tonight in order to workout early tomorrow morning hopefully.

Cutting diet day 44

November 29, 2012

I’d like to start off this blog with my current weight:20121128-190600.jpg

This was my weight a couple weeks back: 20121128-190627.jpg

I am making progress,cutting the weight slowly but surely,even while under tremendous amounts of stress from work and home I try to manage. My diet has been about 95-100% for the most part. Once my mind isn’t thinking about food but on more important things then I don’t worry too much on my appetite. I unconsciously would drink well over a gallon of water each day to help facilitate the nutrients throughout the body.

Here are a few snaps if my work outs and the calories I’ve burned:
20121128-191026.jpg20121128-191031.jpg20121128-191040.jpg20121128-191048.jpg20121128-191058.jpg20121128-191106.jpg20121128-191117.jpg20121128-191129.jpg20121128-191138.jpg20121128-191146.jpg20121128-191209.jpg

As you can see I must always get my AM cardio in no matter what,off day or training day it’s a staple now. I prefer early morning workouts and cardio to what I used to do,late night training and cardio. Early morning would help jump start my day while late night lifting would affect my sleep.

Here are 2 body shots,one month apart,I will start dating them as well to keep a proper time frame going:

From what my coach said the upper abs are coming out right on schedule, but the lower abs are the tough part. He said it could be from either low testosterone or my thyroid. I’ve gotten a testosterone booster by MuscleTech to help administer the precursors to make testosterone in the body naturally. This should help a lot on my lifts and to get rid of the belly fat,also I’ll start targeting the lower abs at the end of all my exercises too.

Here is an example of a snack I’m allowed to have that isn’t bad for the diet at all,it’s pretty much water:

20121128-192210.jpg

Hopefully I can inspire people through my own example, Justin Dees taught me that. My main goal was always to inspire my little brother and father to eat healthy and jump into the gym but it’s a difficult challenge when you have family members,stubborn ones at that,who think they know better. Once the washboard abs come along I’ll be happy to help them. I have been getting TREMENDOUS amount of feedback from close friends and random people on how I have inspired them to live a healthier life style. One person joined the navy because if my example,a few have just complimented me and used me as a reason to get back into the gym. I offer my knowledge to anyone interested in learning or wanting to know how to be a healthier them. My dream job would be a nutritionist for fat kids and young athletes along as a personal trainer to help them grow healthy and be healthy; childhood obesity is a very dangerous thing that can lead to complications later on in life. Hopefully once we find a chef here at my restaurant I can concentrate on my schooling for it or at least take online classes as much as possible to try and get certified in NASM first then Nutrition. Our bodies are always unique,we respond to different types of foods and activities based on our genetics,diets and environment. It’s up to us to inspire, it’s up to us to help those that need it, it’s up to us to educate those who doesn’t know,it’s up to us to help….

I’ll be ending with awesome pictures of my cat,enjoy!

I know my form is improper, it was a failure set and I probably should have done less weight.

So for the last 4 weeks I have been maintaining my Mass gaining diet as well as keeping myself hydrated. I just recently switched off of Cellucors C4 pre workout and started taking Animal Pump and Animal M-Stack for my pre workouts. So far it’ll be the third day and I haven’t felt so much focus on my workouts before,feeling a whole lot sorer as well. From what I could read and from other people,M-Stack helps get the nutrients to the muscles faster so that you can build muscles and not worry if the food your eating is getting to them. My current weight is 159 lbs,my goal is 165 lbs. I am in the process now of starting phase 1,Intermediate & hopefully see what gains I can benefit from.

Mass gaining diet day 27

September 13, 2012

Today I made really strong green tea in the morning with Fresh mint leaves and cardamom. Then I iced it and added Chia seeds:

The iPhone 5 was announced yesterday,you can count on me to buy that up! I’m thinking of switching from AT&T over to Verizon. I switched my AT&T iPad 3 to Verizon because I feel that Verizon has a better advantage with signal and LTE here in Jersey,why not the same for their phones.
This was my dinner today:

20120913-171851.jpg grilled asparagus with the olive oil I usually ingest during the day,topped with Cajun seasoning,very simple. Then 4 ounces of lean Beef & 2 slices of Ezekiel bread. Already pumped for the gym tonight! Doing back so I have to make sure it’s done properly.
