Day 91

Actually it is Day 98. Back at it and this time around it seems to be just as hard or harder. I worked out for two months prior last time. This time it is cold turkey. Want to add some running in, but way to tired after workouts.

When to eat.

Eat a Big Breakfast

Research shows that individuals who eat the most calories before noon actually eat the fewest total calories over the course of the day. It seems that eating a hearty breakfast reduces appetite in the afternoon and evening. In a recent Brazilian study, obese women who ate a large, 610-calorie breakfast every morning lost 21 percent of their body weight over an eight-month period, while obese women on a low-carb small breakfast diet lost only 4.5 percent of their body weight. The women on the big breakfast diet reported less hunger and fewer cravings throughout the day.

As a general rule, try to consume eat least 25 percent of your total calories for the day within an hour of waking up.
A sensible eating schedule for most athletes that will keep your appetite in check and reduce total eating is as follows:

7:00 AM -- Breakfast
10:00 AM -- Snack
12:00 PM -- Lunch
3:00 PM -- Snack
6:00 PM -- Dinner
8:30 PM -- Snack (optional)

Day 60

Ok I have about 4 weeks left to go till I finish my first 90 days. I have missed three weeks total so that is why I am not finishing up by the end of March as initially planned. Overall the workouts are not to hard, but it takes commitment and I am happy I have stuck with it so far. The results have been promising and I will continue to get the gut down to flat. I will say the the Friday legs and back workout does give me some trouble because if I do not eat enough my energy level drops and I have to take break. Although days I complete the Yoga (sometimes I skip the Thursday Yoga), the Friday work out goes better. I look forward to doing this again and not skipping a day ( big maybe if during the summer time or football season).

Day 11

Ok Yoga again. I hate the first half. It involves alot of crouched warrior stances and complex standing, balancing moves. The second half is more my speed. Sitting stretches push me a bit more although I still cant touch my dam toes. I actually did the plough move this time. I still can not beleive that.

I had a Moes salad today. If you already know Mexican in my weakness.

Day X

This is my second time on the shoulders and arms work out. I need to get some l5 ob or 30 lb weights. Me and Fortune share to 20 lbs or I use the new triple bands. The triple bands work well, but so not give the full range in some cases.

This was by far the hardest I have pushed myself so far. We did not pause for reason of rest, but only to share weight (while checking form). I did not like the fact that I rested by sitting between each set. I need to learn how to rest while standing, but sitting at a desk for the last 10 years ain't helping.

Diet is going well. I fell better, but no weight loss yet. Still at 214.

Day 9

Plyometrics is fortune favorite. I hate it becuase i have to use my legs and i get so tired doing so. He tried to push me, but I need to work on my form here. We did not pause at all so that was great.

Day 8

We started the week with the same rotation of excercises. I felt much better, we did not take as many breaks. I have decided the bannds will work for me now instead of the actual pull ups. I hope to work the pull ups in next week. I will say this was my most intense day so far. I seem to max out on every routine so much that I could not complete one of the strange a$$ pushups and the end of it all.

Quote of the Day "We are not doing abs today". Fortune was not prepared for the ab wokrout and seems to beleive I am adding ish.

Diet went well.
