Welcome To My New Gym

IMG_20200415_194513

My routine is as follows: pushups for my upper body push muscles, pullups for my back, and sprints for my legs. Dad’s offered to give me some weights from his garage. Things are looking up in terms of fitness.

One of the most annoying things about living this way is the lack of a gym. When there’s no people around it’s hard to have fun working out. That being said, it’s still important to work out. And it’s still good to have a pleasant walk outside (keeping social distancing in mind, of course).

Diet Update 10/26/2019

I wanted to provide an update to my diet plan. Like last time I haven’t followed this as religiously as I should but I’m working on it.

Day 1:

-3 Servings Almond Milk
-2 Bananas
-1 Orange
-1 Cajun Turkey Sandwich
-2 Cups Broccoli
-Black Beans
-1 Bowl Multigrain Cheerios
-1 Cashew Sandwich On Whole Wheat Bread
-2 Cups Spinach
-Grilled Chicken

Day 2:

-3 Servings Almond Milk
-2 Bananas
-1 Orange
-Roast Beef Sandwich
-2 Cups Broccoli
-Black Beans
-2 Bowls Kellog’s Corn Flakes
-2 Potatoes
-Oatmeal
-3 Brazil Nuts
-1/2 Cup Peanuts
-1/2 Cup Pecans
-2 Cups Kale
-2 Adult Carrots
-Grilled Chicken

Wednesdays And Saturdays:

-Salmon

If I’m still hungry after all this every day I eat additional sandwiches with grilled chicken, deli meat, and nuts. All nuts are unsalted. Also, you’ll notice eggs are not eaten daily anymore.

As I continue to gauge my body over time this diet is going to continue to change. I just wanted to share it’s most recent iteration. Again, I’m not a doctor and talk to one before following some dude’s advice on the internet.

Nature Bike Ride 8/31/2019

I went on my first nature bike trip in who knows how long. Part of weight loss is the exercise, something I’ve been slacking off on.

I didn’t make it very far as I had to turn back before the sun went down but I’m considering this baby steps. Next time I’m going to make it to the first stopping point 3.4 miles from where I started. As I’ve said before I’m working my way up to going the entire trail from start to finish.

Then if anyone thinks I’m out of shape, I’ll have over eighty miles of bragging rights to say otherwise.

New Diet

I’ve started a new diet to kick back into weight loss mode. The new plan involves using a variety of foods to get the micronutrients and supplement the remaining macronutrients with deli meat sandwiches, peanut butter, nuts, and black beans. The diet goes on a two day schedule.

Day 1:

-3 Servings Almond Milk
-2 Bananas
-1 Orange
-2 Cups Broccoli
-2 Eggs With Table Salt
-2 Cups Multigrain Cheerios
-1 Cashew Sandwich On Whole Wheat Bread
-2 Cups Spinach
-*Fish Oil

Day 2:

-3 Servings Almond Milk
-2 Bananas
-1 Orange
-2 Cups Broccoli
-2 Eggs With Table Salt
-2 Cups Multigrain Cheerios
-2 Potatoes
-Oatmeal
-Four Brazil Nuts
-1/2 Cup Peanuts
-1/2 Cup Pecans
-2 Cups Kale
-2 Adult Carrots
-*Fish Oil

*Replace Fish Oil With Salmon On Saturdays
While it says things like “2 cups kale” and “3 Servings Almond Milk” that doesn’t mean 2 cups of kale at once. Maybe some kale in the morning and some in the evening. Maybe a cup of cheerios and some brazil nuts for breakfast while another cup for lunch. If I can’t eat enough healthy foods one day maybe supplement with a multivitamin. It’s a common sense sort of thing.

I’ve done enough research to where I feel confident I can get most if not all of the nutrients I need from this. I’m sure there are nutritionists who may agree or disagree, but it’s definitely better than most people’s diets.

Next week I’m looking toward losing at least 2 pounds. That means the goal now is to be 191.8 lbs by next Wednesday morning.

Onward onward! Weight loss here I come!

Update: I’ve changed the number of Brazil nuts to four after feeling sick from eating so many. As a quick reminder I’m just some guy on the internet and not a health professional so ask your doctor before you try a new diet.
