Okay, I'm new to this, so it's sweet and simple.

Woke up 11:30, slept 8.5 hours--one of my best

Ate oatmeal, one sunny side up egg--12:30 pm
Made a shake, but forgot to drink it (had left it in the frig).

Drank my shake (included carrots, a banana, oj, h20, honey, tsp creatine, whey protein); took 2 L-glut pills, plus chondroitin, and multi-vitamin.--3:30 pm

Ate two turkey and cheese sandwiches at 5:30 pm
Drank another shake--this time only OJ, h20 and whey protein; also included the pills.

Worked out legs--180 squats, leg pull ups 90, deadlifts 100, and calves (90 for one, and 270 for another machine).--7-8 pm

Drank my morning-type shake after workout along with 2 L-gluts and 1 chondroitin

Ate fish, broccoli and zucchini plus 2 honey wheat bread slices--9:15 pm

Now, after I get off this--tuna sandwish and an Opti-pro meal shake before hitting the sack.

I know this is not a great diet, but I'm trying, and that's why I need whatever advice you guys can give me.


02-19-2001, 04:49 PM

Okay, here's the 411 for today.

Slept 8 hrs.

Woke up at 10:30--Ate two egg whites with honey wheat bread, philadelphia cheese, turkey and American cheese. Love the cheese. Also drank my famous Oj, water, carrot, banana, 1tsp creatine, whey protein, tsp honey shake. Took 2 1,000mg L-glut pills, 1 glucosamine-c, and a multi-vitamin.

Second meal (2:30)--shrimp etoufee and a turkey and cheese sandwish (included low-fat mayo and mustard plus a touch of tobasco--keepin' it spicy-yum yum).

Third meal (6:00)--big meal--sirloin beef steak, a bbq-grilled chicken leg, rice, caesar salad, refried beans, tortilla and zucchini. Plus I drank a glass of water along with my 2 L-gluts, 1 glucosamine and multi-v pills.

For dessert--celebrated a birthday (not mines)--ate a slice of French Vanilla with cream cheese cake plus rocky road ice cream. Believe me--this rarely happens. So it's an event in itself.

Now, I look forward to making my shake again and perhaps eating a tuna sandwich before going off to bed. Therefore, it will be 4 meals. Not good, I'm looking for 6 meals and possibly even 7. I will start formatting a serious meal plan soon.

Keepin' it real. Thanks.

02-24-2001, 09:12 PM

Okay, it has been a few days, but I've been pretty busy.

Last time I posted, well here's a synopsis.


I think I did pretty good that day--ate breakfast and shake, took off from work, so I ate my meal of beef stew and mash potatoes plus my shake in the afternoon. Went to school, tired though! I sneaked out of class to go film, took some bites from my turkey sandwich i brought. After class, I went home and ate some chinese food plus drank my shake.

I drank Opti-Pro Meal shake before going to bed. Not a good day however.


And even worse day!

Ate a good breakfast of pancakes and oatmeal along with my shake and pills. However, I went to Wendy's for lunch and got a salad, frosty and Spicy Chicken Sandwich. When I got to work, I didn't eat it right away. Forgot about the frosty (and they forgot about dre--LOL). I ate until 1pm my cold sandwich. Didn't attempt to eat the salad--looked nasty. And the frosty, well by the time I got to it, it was a milkshake--so I drank it. Work was hell. Somepeople just get on my nerves. I left work until like 5:30 pm. Had to go to hospital because relative had surgery. So I was starving. Went home until 8pm and ate a turkey sandwich and my shake. Decided to go to the gym because I was feelin' guilty.

Did arms--bis/tris and forearm. Good workout though.

Drank my shake afterwards. Plus ate grilled chicken, a baked potato, and my pills of course. So it paid off at the end.

The past two days, I've only slept like 10 hours--NOT GOOD!


Okay, I was prepared.

Ate two egg whites with honey wheat bread plus rice pudding. Drank my shake and took my L-glut, glucosamine and multi-v pills. Did have a starving bout until 1:30pm--i ate chicken, baked potato and chinese rice leftover.

5:30--Ate a turkey sandwich.

7:30--Ate some chicken and chinese rice again. Took my shake and pills.

9:00--Worked out shoulders (delts right?) Pretty good workout (did four--smith machine bar, barbell flies--up and lower, plus the barbell row and 50 lb shrugs--went up!) and I did calves!

Drank my shake and ate some more chicken and potato.

Slept until 2:30 b/c chatting on this website--NOT GOOD.


Today woke up at 9:30--went back to bed hoping to make 8hrs until 10:30. I kinda did it...

Ate until 12:30 though--beans, turkey and scrambled eggs with honey wheat bread spread with philadelphia cheese. Drank my shake plus my pills.

Ate again until 5:00--chicken, beans and chinese rice. Drank my shake and took my pills.

Worked out--7-8pm--Chest and legs--a first.
A breathtaking workout--i'm still sighing...
Chest: flies--wire and dumbells, plus incline dumbell.
Legs: Squat--with no machine support! On my own this time--did 80lb each side. Plus did dumbell deadlifts--up to 55lb! Leg extensions and leg pulls.

Drank my shake and took my pills afterward. Ate a hamburger (with a few fries).

Now I will probably eat a tuna sandwich and drink an Opti-Pro Meal Shake before heading off to bed.

Letin' the big side win!

02-26-2001, 11:35 PM
Summary again


Slept 8.5 hours-great!

Ate oatmeal, drank my whey protein shake and took my L-glut, glucosamine and multi-v pills.

Took a little nap mid-afternoon (why?)

Ate beans, tortillas and a leftover hamburger for the late afternoon (4:00ish).

Bad day for food consumption. Suppose to eat a nice meal that included hamburgers and grilled chicken legs. But we couldn't get the Darn gas grill to turn on.

Ate two hot dogs therefore.

Drank my shake again and pills.

Went to the store and bought some good stuff (brown rice, fruits, vegetables, pasta--i'm determined to reach 150!)

Bought albacore and ate it before heading off to bed. taste like chicken-why? Thought it was like tuna. Oh well, it was better but more expensive.

So my Sunday was not very good, moderate at the least.

Today-Monday--2/26 LUNDI GRAS!

Slept 6hours--bad!

First meal: Ate 4 pancakes with honey, lil' butter and some strawberry jelly. Drank my shake, includes now whey protein, oj, water, frozen strawberries, carrots, banana and honey. Took my pills.

Had to work despite the holiday.

So went a few hours without food. Did drink some water at work and a apple.

Meal 2 (5:00): Ate a cheese burger with bacon.

Meal 3 (7:30): Drank my shake again and had a lil' turkey sandwich (but didn't finish it-bad, very bad!)

Worked Out (9-10pm): Back! Barbell pullups, deadlifts!, bar pulldown, something I don't know what it's called but I used wire bars and squeezed my back muscles (i'll find out what it's called), chin-ups. Also forearms and one set of abs. Not great, but otherwise a moderate workout.

Meal 4: Shake, pills and now a tuna sandwich plus a cream of potato soup-yummy!

SO trying to get those darn 6 meals in there, I'll keep tryin' though.

Well well well it'sbeen awhile...

I'm back. It's been a rough two weeks, which is why I haven't updated this sucker.

However, I now have some breathing space to do this.

I have to admit the last two weeks have been a struggle--training, nutrition and motivation wise. My emotions have been getting to me with school and work.

So I will just add that I also had to give up tuna for the past two weeks due to the stress (WHAT A SHAME!).

04-06-2001, 10:45 PM
It's been awhile.

Well, this week sucked!

I trained Monday and Friday. My eating habits were all messed up because of film class and work. My sleeping habits went down the drain because of writing papers and studying for tests (at the last minute of course). So I just screwed this whole thing up.

And on top of that, last Sunday I woke up with a painful left shoulder plate/arm. It has not gone away. Either arthritis is kicking in, a muscle strain, or stress! So I hope it goes away soon, i had to keep my back workout to a minimum today. So it felt like i didn't do much.

Shakes, pills ok.



Motivation: GOT SOME

Discipline: NEED TO BUY SOME

Overall: -10; it's been bad, real bad

Good points: I started tanning, so I look fine, but I need to look buff.

Once school is over, I WILL Post a nutrition menu and training log so you guys can check it out and make comments.

04-13-2001, 10:06 PM

Well i've been pretty pathetic when it comes to updating this crap and eating as well.

Today, Good Friday was not that good on my diet though. I only had, well let me just list it so it will be easier to read:

Slept: 7 hours (not good cuz I've been tired, need more)

Meal 1 (9:30am): Oatmeal, 2 pancakes, pills

Meal 2 (all the way until 4pm): MRP

Meal 3 (5pm-i was starving at this point): Popeyes! Chicken fajitas though with red beans and rice. So gooood!

Meal 4 (7:30pm): Whey protein shake and pills

Workout (9-10pm): Shoulders/Chest--for chest (db flies, bb inclines, dips); shoulders (db rows, bb military press, shrugs). Okay workout.

Meal 5 (10:30pm): Whey protein shake, pills and eating a hamburger and fries (no!).

This has been a bad week of nutrition, good week in training though. I did legs Wed. and i felt awesome, with lunges, sldls, leg extensions and calves that i had to take a break Thurs. But other than that, like Mr. Cackerot always says, EAT EAT EAT EAT!!!!!! And be happy too. (by the way how do you put the little faces on here if anyone reads this?)

04-20-2001, 10:39 PM
