  • Great job Matthew!

    I think this is a great idea, alot of people do it, it helps them.

    Suggestions:

    Make sure you have enough carbs in your Myoplex lite. You need atleast 20-30, and I don't think Myoplex lite has it. You might need to add a carb to it, like an apple or orange....?

    Meal 5- you need a carb. I think green beans is considered a vegetable.

    Meal 6- Need a carb!

    Don't forget to get your veggies in there 2 times a day and keep up with your water!!

    The myoplex lite does have 24g of carbs in it so I am good there, and as for the last meal I am trying to eliminate carbs since I am still quite heavy.  Thanks for the tips Stacy

  • Challenge 1 Week 10 day 65, Captains log...

    Well I spent 5 minutes this morning arguing with myself whether I should get up and go do cardio at 5:00am in the morning, or if I should crawl back into the nice warm bed, snuggle up, and go back to sleep.  then I did the fat-man-just-waking-up-scratch-my-belly-thing and noticed something....my stomach.  It is still there, not as big, but it was all I needed to get myself up.

    Up until today I had never burned more than 380 calories on the elliptical, but this morning I registered 400 calories burned and 1 mile.  Its kind of weird considering I can bike something like 6 miles in that time and run almost two miles on the treadmill.  

    I can tell these last three weeks are going to be hard.  This will probably be one of the harder things I have ever done.  It is so easy to be lazy and sit around not doing anything and boy oh boy is it hard getting up at 5:00am and working out.

    Here is my meal plan for today.

    Meal one: 6 egg whites, 2 pieces of whole wheat toast

    Meat Two: Myoplex Lite

    Meal Three: Tuna, Green Beans, Baked potato

    Meal Four: Myoplex Lite

    Meal Five: Chiken and heaping helping of Green Beans and portion of yam.

    Meal Six: Gold Standard Casein Protein, Apple

    1-1/2 gallons of Water.

    Have a great Day everyone!

  • Wow!! Great job on your water intake!!

  • Challenge 1, Week 10, Day 67

    Cardio Day.  Went well because it wasn't fun and I am tired.  I went a little further in my distance, but didn't burn as many calories by the machines standard.  I was 10 calories off from Tuesday's cardio.

    This is where things get hard for me.  I ran out of my Myoplex lite, and can't really afford to go drop any cash on some more.  I still have plenty of Betagen and my normal Whey protein, so know its all about even more preparation and planing.  I have everything cooked and prepared except Meal Five.

    Here is my meal plan for today.

    Meal one: 5 Egg whites, 1 whole Egg, 1 potato

    Meat Two: 30 Grams Whey Protein, 1/2 Cup Oats

    Meal Three: Chicken, Green Beans, Baked potato

    Meal Four: Tuna & Apple

    Meal Five: Yam, Salad, More Chicken.

    Meal Six: Gold Standard Casein Protein, Apple

    1-1/2 gallons of Water.

    I have been hitting my water goal, it is kind of easy because I sit at a desk all day and make sure every hour I am drinking my specified amount.  Its not easy, but its worth it.

  • Sorry I haven't posted anything.  I got really sick after the last  post.  I managed to get to the gym a few times, but couldn't hack it.  Went to the doctors and they said flu, but I was worried because on of our friends daughters who sick around the same time came down with spinal meningitis and almost died.  Kind of scary.  I am on day 75, but don't know how stellar of a finish I will have.  And as for pics, I feel like you Rosemary.  I have lost weight, but then it all stalled out and I just stopped for the last 5 weeks.  Not a pound lost or gained.  I will be started a new challenge on the 7th of June with Rosemary so we will see how that goes.  I am still sick and feel horrible, hopefully it will be gone soon or the the challenge will end very crappy.  Oh well we will finish it out though!

  • Matthew - keep doing what you can....it is better than where you were 75 days ago right?!

  • hit the treadmill hard this afternoon.incline 2.0 first 2 min 4.5 then the first 2 cycles was 5.0,5.5,6.0,6.5, then 3rd cycle I wanted to trick the boby, so i decided to do 5.5,6.0,6.5,7.0, thought I would die, then went back to the same as the first to cycle, then here comes the 18th min, 8.0 for 30sec. then a whopping9.5 for 30 sec. man i almost fell. i have to confess, i did have to grab on for a few seconds during that last 30sec. oh man, the pain in my side was a killer. i was hurting after that one. thank god its done.

    right now I am enjoying a chicken salad. i decided to sautee some mushrooms,onions, yellow and roange peppers. i have to say pretty good. I am enjpying it with some watermelon, speaking of that anyone know why watermelon is not authorize, the sugar is low, full of vitamins and water.
