Looking great everyone Keep up the good work and congrats to those that have been losing weight already
I have given myself an official warning.I did as planned only eat one meal today but that meal was a hamburger and fries. I had to drop my car off for repairs and just grabbed something while I was out. I live alone and I am too quick to get a take away when I can’t be bothered to cook for myself. But I really need to change my ways. I know I can do it as I have done it before.
I used to live alone and it's not always easy since I could just order any junk food I want. What I did was trying to stick to really quick meal I could fix myself, so I could literally cook it within 5-10min with minimum dishwashing(yes, lazy I know), and that beats ordering out since I still have to wait for half an hour and more. Omelets with some kind of pre-cooked meal and veggie was always a favorite, pan-spray and non-stick pan makes it really fast eat and easy.Another great 'weapon' in the kitchen is the Japanese “Yukihira Nabe” pot, it is the greatest gift to any single living alone I swear. A full pot of water could be brought to boil within a min(or that's what I felt like), it's ridiculously fast. Pair that with Chinese frozen dumpling, I could have a meal ready in 10min, with low carb, good protein and some veggie. And again, minimum clean up after cooking.(Image removed from quote.)Yukihira Nabe pot has really thin walls, but it is advised not to fry in the pot since it's easy to blacken it.(Image removed from quote.)This brand is my favorite of Chinese frozen dumpling, great variety and pretty decent QC. This is smurfake mushroom with chicken dumpling, there's always English instruction and ingredients at the back.
Day 5 - morning weight 104Saturday is normally speed work. With the challenge in mind today was ME lower and cardio.Two goals: a good deadlifft variation session and cardio enough to make total 'active calories burned' as defined by Garmin Vivo* up to 1000 on this session.Farmers walks for warm-up, 10 cm deficit deadlifts up to 1RM, 4 sets of barbell rows (3x6, 1x30) and some ab work later I still had 40 min of stair master, 10 of of row machine and 15 min of excercise bike to go thru untill reaching the goalRegarding diet: So far I've outlined my breakfasts and pretty typical lunch. The 2nd photo is of typical recovery meal. Green tea (strong), simple cheese and salami open sandwitch and something sugary for quick carbs. This time it was tradional Christmas pastery. I try and eat this type of meal/snack as soon as I get home from gym.*It seems to me that whilst getting rest heart rates quite alright the Garmin is not very accurate with activity heart rate measuring. It is constantly showing numbers some 10 - 15 beats less than measurement by fingers or the apparatus in stair master. Since HR is used for calorie count I think it misses the target some. So, I'm using this as trend and target setting purposes only. (Image removed from quote.)(Image removed from quote.)
Thanks for the info, my current favourite kitchen item is my wok, i can make a really nice stir fry in a little over ten minutes.
And hairy fruit for a snack.

I'm officially weighing myself every five days so this is my first check in.Day 0- 362.6lbsDay 5- 359.2lbsTotal loss so far: 3.4lbs I haven't managed to get dedicated workouts in this week for a few reasons, but have stuck to my diet and made and effort to pound the stairs on the hour to get me moving and it's working! Keep it up guys, we got this
Back on track today, I had brown rice, mixed veg and two meat balls for dinner, I have also added some quinoa to my shopping order coming on Monday.
That is a very solid start to the challenge
