Food/Training Log: April 21/22, 2012 (Progress Info)


- A medium green zucchini sliced and cooked in butter with salt, pepper & garlic powder

- 2 fried eggs


- A double w/cheese from Wendy's

- A side salad with ranch (no croutons)

- 3 french fries


- Went to a huge potluck during which a family band played. Tons of naughty foods I could have indulged in. Instead, I had a little of 3 or 4 different green salads, a spoonful of fresh fruit, a spoonful of my husband's jambalaya, some ham, a baked chicken leg & a fried chicken thigh with the skin pulled off. I did have like 5 mini taquitos, tho. There were lots of desserts, too, but my overall interest in them wasn't very strong.




- 2 pancakes with butter & natural table syrup


- 23g vanilla whey blended with 8oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk, a spoonful of crunchy peanut butter & 5 frozen strawberries


- One small BBQed filleted chicken breast

- One fresh mozzarella cheese stuffed burger (essentially mozz mushed between two hand formed patties to form one fat patty) with a little mayo, ketchup and a few pickle chips


- A medium banana cream pie blizzard

(A carb refeed day I suppose...)

**Measurements were taken from a month ago following my thruster/pullup program done 3 days a week (a few random workouts were also in the mix a few days in the beginning). It was certainly a success!! I did have a weight gain of about 1.3lbs but I can bet that's water. With the weather yesterday, I drank a ton. I say that because my total body fat dropped 1.5cm and figuring my total lean mass shows I gained 1.1lbs of muscle. But, in reality, the number on the scale isn't what is important. It's what the measurements show. And as long as they are going in the right direction, I'm happy despite what the scale says.

I had an increase in my lats, a small drop in my waist (around the navel), a huge gain of 1.5in in my hips, a gain of 3/4in in my thighs, 1/2in increase in my calves (Shocked about this since nothing else I've done in the past year has produced this big of a result in my calves) and a 1/4in gain in my biceps. Considering I'm a bit of a hard-gainer, this is all pretty awesome!

Tomorrow, I'll get started on something new. Don't have all the details figured yet, but I will definitely be getting back into deadlifting.

**No Workout today or yesterday...
