If only we did 6 months deployments. We're still on 12 month deployments. So I have plenty of time. We also don't do pt, we're aviaiton (I guess aviaiton doesn't do pt) and we've already been told that our health, weight and exersice is in our hands and that we don't have to take a single pt test while we are here.
My diet is as good as it can be considering I don't have very much control over it, but the mess hall is pretty good about cooking healthy food. Most days they have steamed veggies, baked meats, rice etc. They also have the fat, protein and carb content listed on a board. There is the short order line that is always there but I only eat that once a meal, twice a week. Thats for the pizza and pancakes.
I drink water 98% of the time, i do indulge in a soda about once or twice a week. I eat salad and fresh fruit every meal and for snacks also. I also just ordered some supplements that should be here soon and those are whey protein, a multi, some bcaas, fish oil and caesin protein.
I know diet is the key. I watch that and do the best I can with what I have. My biggest question is how to improve my routine, what can i add or take away? I have been on a 3 day lift schedule (day on, day off, two consecutive days off) I'm normally in the gym for about an hour, hour and half.
Should I stick with full body or should I change to a split and add another day in there? I bust my ass in the gym as hard as I can go, still having some troubles due to the drastic elevation change of 6000 ft. At work we do have tractor tires, when we having nothing to do, I'll start flipping those from one side of the hangar to the other.
