a little too much weekend

so I was doing good... but my 1 day carb up turned into basically a 2 day carb up...
the morning was smooth, had a nice chunk of raw artisan cheese
I was railroaded by a impromptu lunch with my colleagues... very rare
I could have got sashimi... but I lost focus and katsu curry and a spicy tuna roll... at least I popped a few anabolic pumps today on this day
in the early evening I had a large protein shake and a Jay Robb bar and some granola after an intense workout... then went to watch 'Race'... ok movie
at night I had a huge sandwich, mac n cheese, and a sheep's milk yogurt... then some ice cream really late... all while playing Scrabble

Saturday I also had 3 anabolic pumps
in the am it was with raw colostrum, ma po do fu and rice/noodles, 2 organic eggs, and a big protein shake
in the afternoon, it was the same protein shake, 3 tbs maple syrup and a slice of fruitcake
in the evening - my buddy Partha's house - lots of indian food, and a touch of scotch and wine

yesterday was good - split up over 2 meals, about 1400 calories
1 lb organic grassfed beef (raw) with organic turmeric, cumin, salt, and pepper
2 organic egg yolks (raw)
2 tbs organic macadamia nut oil
now that I have a new belt hole I can measure my waist without being too scale obsessive


ok - this is a big tracking and metric point

I punched 2 new holes (thanks Baba) into my belt... and I am on my newest belt hole... a bit snug but it is a good measuring point... will wait to see when this one is loose

ok - on second thought... that is way too painful... so I know it is too tight...

I will try this every morning until it is loose...

193.0 at 28.8% BF

I tried on my black pants that I use to measure
They are looser but when I pull them up, it is a bit tight - so I can better measure my love handle reduction...

I went to watch the UCLA game at my friend Brent's house - they won!
So did the Warriors!

Yesterday was a really high calorie day for me - I maintained low carb though

It was really nice that my girl noticed that my face has gotten slimmer and that my body is changing nicely, and even gave me an arms compliment :)

I woke up in the am, popped my lipo-6 and 1 anabolic pump and had breakfast

1 tbs super plasma
1 tbs organic heavy whipping cream

194.2 at 29.4% BF

so a pound dropped... not bad... the BF% is really deceiving on a day to day basis

looking leaner, belt getting looser, the plan is put another belt hole in this weekend... yup, ghetto and old school... but how else will I get to 32 inch waist?

I tried something a little different today, I used a dose of magic (USP Anabolic Pump) - no, not as an exuse to eat a ton of carbs - just 37 grams to be precise... supposedly it helps fat loss once in a while

dinner was a lighter than yesterday - approximately 1550 calories

I had a dose of magic 35 minutes before eating

2 tbs maple syrup
1 tbs raw butter

4 egg yolks (raw organic)
1 lb organic grassfed beef (raw) with organic turmeric/cumin, salt and pepper

1 scoop Grow!
1 tbs super plasma

Fat = 94 grams
Protein = 139 grams
Carbs = 37 grams



will do a zero carb meal tomorrow

200 lbs

of course I gained weight on my carb up!

but arms are looking bigger, more cut (note, not 'cut' as they are far from that), and bicep vein visible...

today was slow, watching movies (the first half of '300' and Resident Evil: Extinction) and visiting the folks - watched my Warriors blow a 26 point lead and then hold on to win!

dinner was simple and about 1160 calories - a little low, but I like to zig zag them the first day after carb up and then increase protein/fats instinctually

Meal was 100% raw

4 organic egg yolks
1 lb organic grassfed beef

big note: I started Lipo-6 X today - so I am on a fat burner for about 5 weeks to see if I can break into the 180s

194.8 at 27.3% BF (click for progress)

so on March 14th I was 195.2 at 29.6% BF so I am making progress - obviously these Tanita scales are not good for folks on low carb, but girlfriend is making comments (positive ones) and my black pants which I could not button up top at work now fit (not perfect but I can button them)

today was my carb up day ala Anabolic Diet, Cheater's Diet, Carbnite, etc...

3 doses of magic (Anabolic Pump) were used today before my big three meals

then errands, then off to my friend Brent's house for dinner and UCLA game (we won! 51-59 vs Texas A&M)

dinner was rice/korean left over pork/enchiladas, ice cream, and raw chocolate colostrum

protein = 70 grams

overall a massive food day - but that was the point...

194.6 at 28.8% BF

29 today!

so my girl turned 29 today... very mellow day today as we were out late...

actually we went to Icanto last night and had a wonderful dinner of pig trotter with fois gras and bacon, braised pork, duck pasta and a strangely awful dessert of chocolate tart and cardammon ice cream - then hung out with our friends and watched the last half of American Gangster

I am running a little low on sleep so I skipped my workout today... I think I will take tomorrow off as well and lift hard on Tuesday

I weighed in Saturday morning at my girl's scale at 195.6, then I woke up this morning at 199.9

dinner today was 100% raw

I am going to try 100% raw for 5 days and see how I look on Friday...

that means my protein will be lower but i will be sure to keep my fat high... workouts will be Tuesday and Wednesday...

dinner again:

raw butter
3/4 lb grassfed beef mixed with HCS, organic turmeric and cumin
4 organic egg yolks

End of week - 195.6 lbs

so I ate clean for six days - Sunday through Thursday

I lost about 4-5 lbs this week, my girl said it showed...

yesterday ate quite a bit of food after my am workout, we went to Incanto in the city for dinner... woke up this morning at 199.9 lbs...

goal is to drop 6 lbs by Friday

Thursday, March 13, 2008
