So, it is proven that those who write a log of their exercise and food intake each day have better results than those who do not. So, post your exercises and your food log here.
Exercises: Push-ups (20 ) : Completed
Sit-ups (25): 22 completed.
Walking (2 miles): Walked for 15 min, not sure distance.
Weights (10 lb. ea. 20 reps ea.) : Not completed.
Food: Breakfast: Banana, two eggs, muffin two glasses of water.
Lunch: Two egg salad sandwiches, bag of Baked Lays and a Diet Mountain Dew (20 oz).
Dinner: Baked chicken leg+thigh, mashed poatoes w/ chicken gravy, roasted veggies (carrots, potatoes, celery, onions), and Splenda-sweetened iced tea.
Snack: Medium McDonalds fries.
^ Just an example, though it sounds good, it's not healthy. And it's about average for a lot of people.

When posting, please be honest, we don't judge, and it only hurts you to lie about it.

Fact: 3500 calories equals one pound of fat to the body. Burn 2k more calories and eat 1.5k less calories and you lose a pound of fat, in theory. Plus, the more muscle you have, the more calories it burns.

#5 Magical Machete on 8 years ago

I ate a lot of food today. Not even going to lie. Mostly all sugar too.
Noodles and chicken from manchu wok, a java monster, 5 bottles of aquafina, and a bag of lemon flavoured cough drops... haha BUT!!!!

I ran two miles today. that kinda helps make up for some of it right? @[email protected]

Nevertheless, Burpees tomorrow. Situps and pushups too. Gotta pass my next PT test.
I really want some fruit.... so tomorrow Im for sure eating healthier than today... Mid shifts has me all messed up though. X_X

#6 Slapthefatcat on 8 years ago

Yeah, my fridge is almost empty of stuff that's edible (mostly condiments, tortillas, etc.), stuff that you wouldn't eat alone. I gotta put LOTS of fruits and veggies on the grocery list (a LOT).
Food so far today: Two and a half scrambled eggs w/ mushrooms, cooked in olive oil (yes, it does taste better in olive oil, I was skeptical until I tried it, and it is good).
Exercise: None yet, hoping to walk two or more miles when I get home, if I get home. Though I did park far from my class and I took the stairs rather than the elevator.

#7 scortor on 8 years ago

-Walk 30 minutes (completed)
-(I'm counting this because it's really exhausting) Stocking the drink cooler at work. It's essentially 3 hours of heavy lifting.

Breakfast - 1 piece of toast with a little butter, a banana, and a cup of coffee
Lunch - Salad with chicken, chickpeas, carrots, corn, and peas in low-fat italian dressing
Dinner - Grilled steak with brown rice and broccoli

-At School / Outside-
Speed walk only: Only slowed down with friend in the hallway. Also done outside
Stairway UP: Skip every other step or more.
Stairway DOWN: If I don't have a bag, jump from top to bottom or if tired, jump from half way. (Most likely bad for the knees :S) If I do have a bag, jump from little more half way down.

-At Home-
Jog or Run: No walking
Weights: 4lbs dumbbells on each arm and practice martial arts with them (Those are my only weights... I live in a small place you see)
Stairway UP: Every other step or more.
Stairway DOWN: Not as extreme as School as I have less room and a ceiling to worry about. I hop down the last 4 steps.
Before Sleep: Stretch, 20~40 Push ups, 50~100 sit ups. The amount depends on my mood, energy, stress.. etc.

-Hanging out with friends-
Parkour when I can =). Hehe~!

Breakfast: None but water. (Really)

Well that's how I really go everyday.. People think I'm crazy yes, but that's part of the fun ^^

#12 greenclouds on 8 years ago

Walking: 6km (around 3.7 miles) in 45 min even though it was raining heavily.
Sit ups 20: done
Oblique sit ups 15 each side: done
muscle training in upper arms 13x2 reps per arm:

Pure carrot juice from Bolthouse
1 large Slice of non-buttered Parisian bread with fish fillet. (I'm Asian. I eat anything for breakfast and we never have butter at home)

Tuna sandwich with multi grain bread
sesame whole grain crackers with hummus
chia seed with water drink

afternoon snack (kinda close to dinner actually)
1/4 of a large chocolate muffin
orange/mango/peach juice

Mushroom with pork sautee
grilled salmon with onions
1 cup white rice
and like a tiny square of cheese cake

*sigh* Need to do groceries. There is nothing but tofu spread, picked red peppers and orange juice with 2 pears in the fridge. I'm actually not happy at the fact that there are no vegetables.

btw guys any advice for a sorta lactose intolerant person to get her calcium (I can eat certain processed stuff)? I've tried lactose free milk and find it absolutely disgusting. Also rapidly getting sick of soy milk.

#13 Slapthefatcat on 8 years ago

Kanomi They say, when dieting, breakfast is the most important meal because it jumpstarts your metabolism.
Greenclouds I would suggest Calcium pills, but they taste awful.

#14 KamenRiderAgito on 8 years ago

Jacknife (40 reps)
Crunches (250)

Breakfast: Egg and bacon English muffin, Strawberry/banana smoothie
Lunch: Red wine vinegar chicken, rice, arugula
Snack: Applesauce

Can't wait until the doctor gives me the okay to go back to taekwondo practice, or at least to start running again.

#15 Magical Machete on 8 years ago

Crap. I didn't exercise today. Or eat.
I got a call saying I had to change my shift from mids to days tomorrow, so when I woke up, found out I'll have to go to sleep in a couple hours... T ^T
I guess this is a few hours early... but dunno if ill be online when it for real is time to post... Need to go sleep.

@kamen rider - ive always wanted to do taekwondo. ^^ Im assuming its super fun?

@greenclouds - Im not lactose intolerant, but I do hate the taste of milk... so maybe I can help. ^^
And you wont have to take icky pills hopefully.
Spinach, yogurt, beans, nuts, fish, fortified orange juice, broccoli, and different types of peas all have calcium. ^^ those are the things I rely on to get my calcium since I dont drink milk. And they all taste pretty spiffy. <3 ^^ Just remember moderation.
