Day #4 – The Dawn of Eating

Oh my fucking god. I think I ate enough food yesterday to feed a small village in a 3rd world country. Trying to get used to eating so much is kicking my ass, but I know it’s going to be worth it in the end. I swear it’s like I eat, then I’m over it, and then all of a sudden, my phone is blowing up that I need to eat again. Are you kidding me?!?!

It could be worse…I could be stuffing donuts and baconator’s down my throat, but I’m not, I’m actually getting good, clean food. Oh…and my water intake is finally back up, and I’m not pissing every 30 minutes. You know how irritating it is to wake up every 30 minutes in the middle of the night to pee?

So any who…keep on keepin’ on…95 days to go.

Day #3 – Only 97 more!

Like Ice Cube said…shit…I guess about a decade or so ago (side note: I’m old)…today has been a good day!

Today was the first day that I ate all 6 meals – on time. It’s hard getting in to a groove of eating that many meals when you’re used to the standard 3 – or in my case, the 2 maple donuts in the morning plus overeating at lunch, then it’s usually a toss up for dinner, but Chipotle was always on the menu.

Damn…I miss Chipotle…haven’t had it in like a week. :-(

So anyway, protein shake for breakfast, turkey and fruit for mid-morning snack, some chicken + rice & corn for lunch, protein shake for mid-afternoon snack, top round + green beans for dinner, and I just slugged down another protein shake – well, I’m actually slugging it down right now.

Ty tells me I need to consistently eat to keep my metabolism churning, and I can feel it doing it’s job, because the food doesn’t feel like it’s hanging out in my stomach for too long, so obviously my body is processing it quickly.

I also took a day off from the gym today – I’ve been on for 4 day straight and figured my body could use a day off. Back at it tomorrow morning!

Update: Clearly I can’t count…it’s day #3!

Dude…enough chicken already!

I’m 4 days in to my 100 day challenge, and I tried to give chicken another chance, but I think I ruined it for myself last year. There’s just something about eating chicken that I’ve cooked – it makes me want to vomit!

I’ve never cooked chicken that has made me sick before, but for some reason, I’m super paranoid about it. When I eat it, I have that thought running through my head, and the strange thing is – it’s only chicken that I’ve made myself. I had some chicken at Miller’s house this weekend that was pretty damn good!

Just sent Ty a message about a substitute, and apparently I can’t go with pork – gotta stick with turkey or fish. I think Courtney made those tacos on Friday from tilapia…I might have to give that a try, and I’ll just fall back on halibut if I have to.

Day #2: Meal #4

12oz Green Beans
4oz Turkey Breast (left over)
5oz Top Round Steak

100 Day Challenge

I recently decided to pull my head out of my ass and to get serious about my goals. In 2010, I lost 50lbs, but am I completely happy with the results…no. I mean, I am happy that I lost 50 lbs, and I do feel/look better, but I’ve still got a little bit more to go.

My goal is to be at 12% or less body fat in 100 days. The 100 day clock started yesterday, and my end day is October 24, 2011. By then, if I stick with my diet and my workout routines provided by Ty @ Team Cane Fitness, and Darin, and my buddy Jason, I should be shredded by then.

Right now I’ve made it a point to plan and make 2 days worth of meals ahead of time. I have 6 meals a day starting at 8am going all the way up to 9pm. The 2 hardest things that I can see in the foreseeable future are keeping my meals mixed up enough where I’m not getting tired of them, and making sure I have myself on a schedule on days that have or don’t have Dom – I’m getting severely OCD about my calendar right now.

So here goes nothing – I weighed in at 231 lbs on Saturday morning, and Ty took measurements – but I’m waiting on him to get those over to me. I’ll post those up when he sends them over. Also, I plan to use the “100 Day Challenge” category on here to post daily about my meals that I’m eating (with pictures), and to post up my workouts. This is another challenge from me – because if you know me, I’m not too consistent with my blog.

So anyway…time to rock out with my **** out…Paul Walker will be my bitch after this is all over with.
