Daily Diet 06/16/09

I consumed about 3137 calories today.  My Bodybugg is telling me that I burned 3181.  That makes me neutral for the day.

I’m still ramping up my diet as I figure out exactly how much I should be eating and what the protein / carb / fat breakdown should be to reach my body building goals.  I’m working towards taking in about 4000 cals on my workout days – all clean.  It is HARD eating so much clean food.  Sometimes I feel like it’s a full time job.    Clean means whole grains, low fat, low sugar, and generally unprocessed.  Here’s the total food I ate today in no particular order:

Calories: 3137, Protein: 316g, Carbs: 344g, Fat: 54g

Daily Stat Update 06/16/09

This week has started as a tough workout week.  Monday I was feeling sick and had a terrible cough.  Totally killed my workout.

I just started tracking my body fat daily, and it’s all over the place.  Last week it was at 5.5%, this week it’s at 9.4%.  As far as I understand, that’s impossible.  It’s a little disconcerting though, to watch your body fat almost double over a few days…

Eddie and I almost skipped our workout today.  It was one of those days where neither one of us felt any motivation at all.  I’m feeling sick, he’s out of it.  We pushed on through, and the workout actually ended up pretty good 🙂

As you can see from the heart rate, it was a pretty moderate workout.  Average HR looks like it was around 117.  I’ve had workouts where it shoots past 170.

Today was shoulder day.  I started with a 10 minute mile warm up at 3 pm, then another 10 minutes of rotator cuff warm up exercises.  I’m doing physical therapy for my left shoulder right now, it’s pretty bummed.

Here’s the workout:
