Food & Exercise Diaries

Day 13 Food Diary (9/08)

First day of strength training class was a bit of an eye opener. I knew I’d dieted/cardio’d away most of my muscle, but didn’t realize how bad I’d let myself get. (I should have kept doing pilates over the summer!) I could hardly even do the warm ups–and it’s just me and 2 guys, so my weakness was just emphasized.

My appetite was totally gone after the workout, but I still managed to convince myself to have my planned protein shake. As a result of the first day disaster, I’m now trying to get 1300-1500 cals on workout days, and 70g+ protein in the hopes of still being able to build a bit of muscle while losing fat.
