I was doomed from birth on hair. I had a Mohawk at 10 , wrestling, and long at 14. Shaved and bald at 19. It was in look were I was from. So were polish buffets !


#84

:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: nice. so you still have a ton a hair. i guess genetics help. i had a solid full bead a hair always have…kust i notices i can see more scalp all over and it feels thinner to the tough…maybe its my mind playing tricks…because that was one of my biggest fear taking test…thats why it took me so long to give in and take it…i was getting the refill and was going to renew…but i wouldnt take it…it was a three part plan…one was to try and and keep getting low reading so he would think he has to up it…i ditched that when i saw post on here that there are readings of test levels when u get blood work…that dictates the level of test u are SUPPOSED…to have taken :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: another one was to stock up incase he was stubborn and wouldnt up my dosage (the doc)…and incase for what ever reason he stopped…i had enough stock pile to handle my needs lol!


#85

ok…tonight i bombed…i left work at 9 pm. starved i stopped with my buddy i worked with and i did bad…had two cups a soup…a salad…aaaaannnnnd…

10 chicken wings…i finally got home at 11 pm…as much as i am stressin a lil…i have to go to bed…because if i do cardio…it will be an hr…i would say i ate about 1000 calories…i might be over calculating…but by tomorrow night i must earn this mess. so tomorrow will be coffee…maybe a salad…glutamine and bcaa then one meal after work…if i have one before work it will be my last for the day…and just liquids till wed…but major gym time tomorrow…will be another late night from work because tomorrow is finishing day for that project and then a day off on wednessday and new project thursday. so i can go crazy tomorrow night and i will get two gym times in on wedness day…

here is the damage…

i started out great today though…

early lunch…


#86

Bro, you should prep your meals vs always eating out. That would save you a ton of temptation!!!


#87

yes. true. i usually make right choices…during the week me and my buddy ride together in the work van so for the most part i have been declining after work restaurant visits. he looves restaurants…but when i do go i make right choices…i gave in to that temptation yesterday based on a suggestion and i validated it by saying…i will just make it up in gym time…when i get home…well i didnt get home till much later cus we made two other stops on the way home…so when i finally got in…it was late…so it was my fault I could have just stuck to salads and soup it was half price appetizers :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: … but yes meal prep is key for sure but yes Mill prep is key for sure… besides most all restaurant choices especially their main foods are loaded with salt high in sodium even the soups


#88

so…just getting in from work 1 11 am. needless to say…missed another day…so monday and tuesday so far…day but i ate salads all day…a side salad for breakfast and two larger salad…one was chicken salad…one was not my style…but it was given to me…had deli turkey meat and ham in it…a cob salad of some kind…i ate that at 5. that was my last meal. i still ended up one more day that project…but wont be a late day so i will get the gym in for sure…the new job we have to finish up by 5 so thats good for my getting back on scedule with the work outs.


#89

just got in…:angry::angry:…tired… sore disk…but i kep the cals under 1200.

for lunch…

and dinner on my was home we stopped again at that place where i screwed up with the wings…but i made better choices this time…

i had two cups of their south west black beans and beef soup…and a cup of their chicken torttia soup (because they ran out of black bean soup) that was the next best thing…each cup is 110 calories…then i had 2 small caeser salads they were 200 cals each

730 calories total for late dinner…

my buddy ordered the nachos he always like to get and when i made it clear i need to keep the cals low to my waiter when i cancelled a order that i realized was not good choice…it forced my buddy to check his…he did…1810 calories and he ordered a side of extra meat…so… :joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy:…the gulit set in and he had also two cups of soup and a 1/4 of the nachos…the rest he took and gave to his room mate :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

especially when he catch me staring at the plate a food he has and then i look at him with a sort of blank stare…that says…u are going to eat …all that?..seriously? …with a hint of grossed out look :rofl::rofl::rofl:…the guilt set in.

but any ways…i feel like i am spinning out of control here…a third day no gym…this is not good…

the good news is…i finished…and i get the day off tomorrow…so double gym day tomorrow…one on friday and 2 saturday and 2 sunday…so i will get 7 sessions in yet this week.


#90

i am feeling good right now and very perspired!.. i mean inspired!! :rofl::rofl::rofl: i got my cardio in…no meals yet just coffee…

i focussed more on the resistance and the incline…it was incline level…4,6,8,10 intervals…

the first 20 minutes i did at level 10 resistance then the remainder at level 11.

i alternated forward and backwards every 5 minutes focusing on…as well…favoring the injured side by putting more pressure to strengthen.

i feel better and looking forward to my other two gym times today…i will do back in a few hrs abd end the night with another hr of cardio woohooo!!

i had a goal of being in the 230’s lbs and a loose 36/ tight 34 waist

i have sceduled to post results next thursday…the three day slip up may cost me that goal…but we will see. i will do a few tricks (adding extra cardio session…30 mins to 1 hr each) and hope they work lol!!


#91

just had first meal…

a turkey burger 240 cals…4 oz

a cup of baby lima beans probably another 150 calories


#92

SOlid work man. Fasted cardio is my fave. Wish I could do it more.


#93

I really enjoy turkey its a great sub for beef and is cheaper so you can get more for your money.
The beans are also one of my favorites


#94

it really helps with dropping the weight for sure :smiley::smiley:


#95

there is this thing i hear all over that too much red meat is dangerous…yet its the best source for building muscles…i am so confused on that so i just try and keep it safe and take added sups like bcaa and glutamine.

i actually didnt get cardio in and decided against it because i didnt want to ruin the pump and muscle growth from the work out…didnt want to stunt any gains. i felt.

i had no pre work out meal. just coffee. i will be having two whole eggs and 5 egg whites after with orange juice with glutamine added


#97

had my post work out meal u see there. tbe orand juice had glutamine and sulfur added. its bed time at 2 am :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:…i have to get up in 5.5 hrs ugh…rough day ahead :rofl::rofl::rofl:


#98

I will say that it depends on the red meat you’re eating. Some is still really bad for you. I actually cut red meat out of my diet completely for almost 9 months. I was still making the same progress and substations were turkey chicken tuna salmon is a big part of my diet. I stay away from farm raised seafood but I will honestly say that I believe when I was eating almost all seafood and chicken I felt really good. Its just really expensive diet to eat.
Also eggs are a huge part of my diet.
I believe that red meat is harder for the body to break down and my stomach handles the large amounts of protien I eat better without alot of red meat. Even though I would eat red meat every day all day if I could lol


#99

yes. i know the red meat is hard on the body …every so often i have a nice steak lol!! i love sea food so i would get salmon or tellapia…i always find the sales…so when those sales come up once in a blue moon where they need to get rid a the stuff i am there stocking up lol!. but i actually like the frozen turkey breast …i had one in the freezer for ever and i took that out made it…lots of servings…6 lbs…so i will get a few more this week…i had bought a replacement one…but i like it so much…i will make it a main thing for now…after this next week…i am going to try soup for a couple weeks…just broth veggies and protein…see where that puts me the second week of april. i loove soup…but on soup its like i stay hungry…so i will have to have side veggies to give more body…major planning with that phase :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:


#100

first meal… lunch…ofcourse i did not eat the bed of crispy chips it came on…had no clue it came that way…i would have x’d it lol!!

my next meal was just now at 10 pm…got in later…buddy wanted to stop and eat so i waited in the van…i was starving too…but after he came back went to the grocery store and got more food for a while so i made a whole pack of chicken breasts so i should be able to get a few days out of it if i stick to the 8 oz servings…this is my pre work out meal …

i was feeling full on the 8.4 oz u see there so i will cut back to 4 oz…right now i feel over full. let that digest a lil so…it will be chest in a hr and a half…around 11 45 i will go down to the gym and try and exahaust my pectorals…to be honest i want really big pecks and traps lol! no cardio tonight…i will shoot for two sessions tomorrow…i am going to my b day dinner finally tomorrow so i know i will do a lil damage…but i wont rest till its earned…so.i will be antsy till i feel i have earned the splurge.
