2009 - Week Five - Ignore the PAIN...

Today's Weight - 327.4 -8/-33.6

I averaged 1695 calories last week with the following breakdown; Carbs - 46%, Fat - 31%, Protein - 23% and Alcohol - 0%. I really feel my nutritional focus was the best it has been in a LONG time last week. I didn't really waver or do anything to sabotage myself last week. The temptation was there, let me tell you but holding steadfast to the goal at hand is very doable and something I want more than anything right now. I really don't fear being too restrictive with my nutrition and actually this week is about the farthest I really want to push it at this time. I am comfortable with my intake, my body has adjusted to the amount of food I am giving it and I really don't have any big issues with hunger anytime. 1700 calorie average in real terms would bet the equivalent of eating over 5 six inch subway club (wheat bread) sandwiches (with no cheese) but pile on the veggies EACH Day. Stack it up on the counter and that really is a LOT of food.

I have to say my workouts were better than they have been in a LONG time last week. I was in the gym 4 times and had two lifting sessions and 4 GREAT cardio sessions. My bike riding totaled 110 minutes last week at 15+ miles per hour with a medium resistance on the fat burning program OR JUST enough to make me want to die finishing it. :-) Although, after Friday I do feel that I can push up the time on it starting next week if all goes well this week. One thing that really helps me during cardio is to program some motivational and hard charging music into the mp3 player and to CRANK IT UP and just simply gain focus and IGNORE THE PAIN....

Enough rambling for now...

Keep the Faith and FIGHT THE FAT...

Sounds awesome! I don't think i could eat a subway sub without cheese. LOVE cheese way too much! But you are right about heaping up the veges. That's the trick :o)
