This Week’s Food Journals

I am posting my food journals for this week.  As I mentioned in Tenacity Unveiled: The Background and The Update, I had to postpone the assiduous goal of gaining muscle.  Instead I redirected my goal-seeking to another shoot with Ariel.  In preparation for that, I promised Paul, my trainer, no cheats since we are doing this quickly.

There are some things I have learned since the last time.  One is.. I need to be consistent about the time I eat every day.  So I have tried to pay particular close attention to staying an a schedule.  The other is.. maybe I don’t know everything.  🙂  So I have relinquished control to Paul.

The food..

The hidden gotcha’s that I do not track would include:

Coffee with a splash of unsweetened almond milk and stevia.  (Another lesson learned was ixnay on the afternoon cappuccino with skim milk.  The carbs in the skim milk was the gotcha!)

Sugar-free gum.. I chew at least a 1/2 pack a day.

Supplements that I think I screen fairly well.. Rush pre-workout, L-Carnitine, Night Recovery Matrix.

      Hi! Is there a reason why you’re reluctant? I used to think it was a pain to keep track of everything I ate and still kind of do to be honest. But what I do now is use the note app on my phone. Since the goal for me is to be consistent even with times, I copy yesterday’s note and aim for the same. It gives me a weird little mini-goal AND I don’t have write it all. 🙂
