So I thought I’d start a training log to help track my progress. I’ve never done a log before on T-nation, like once on BBforums .com but I didn’t keep it up to date.
I figured if I can track progress and ask any questions I have on here.
Weight: 225.2 This morning
Age as of this morning: 21
My main goal is to get to BW of 215 and keep what strength I have now.
I’ve been lifting for maybe 2 years now. I lived in a Hampton inn in New Mexico for a year for my job. My gym partner was my co-worker, he kinda taught me how to put on mass, but I mainly put on fat. When i moved back home I started to eat better, like home-cooked meals, not Chili’s every night. However i still wasn’t tracking macros.
So I downloaded MyFitnessPal, went to Walmart, bought a scale, a food scale and I’ve dropped from 245 to 225. I feel SO much better about my body, BUT I’m still not where I’d like to be. So I want to hit 215, see how I look and go from there.
I’m in a calorie deficit, I track everything I eat.
I’m pretty good at making sure to hit my protein intake but sometimes life gets in the way, the carbs and fats fluctuate day to day.
Monday - Friday for Breakfast I eat the same meal: 3 eggs and a 1/2 cup of egg whites (Half cup is for volume) = 281 Calories
Monday - Friday for Lunch I generally eat the same meal: 1 Cup broccoli, 1 Cup Green Beans, a slice of american cheese, 2cups of 90second brown rice, wheat bun and 2 Grilled and Ready to eat chicken fillets = 885 Calories.
Afternoon - Dinner (post workout) It varies on what I feel like preparing for dinner, will probably post FoodPorn pics.
Saturdays and Sundays are generally more relaxed on my diet, however, I try my damnedest to stay in a deficit, more often then not, I do.
For the sake of keeping this first post short, I’ll post my workout program, pic at 245 and pic at 225 in another post.
