Enjoyed reading the following post today. Here’s the intro:
Help! How do I get started?
I'm out of shape, bad diet, and I need a kick to get going! Any advice on how to start? My mind is in stop mode and cannot get into first gear. I read all the time about protein, creatine, carbs, etc. How do you start? What do I take? Menus, fitness!! Aaaaarrrgghghgh! Help?
Today’s breakfast was Apple Crumble Oatmeal (made with soy milk, no Splenda):
plus an egg-white puff with peri peri sauce:
For a snack I had a homemade protein bar and celery:
Then I went down the road to do a couple of errands and go to the gym. Someone was using the squat rack so I substituted with Smith squats. For a ‘meathead’ gym, it’s odd that there’s only one squat rack but two Smith machines.
After training I had some rice protein and raisins:
I followed that with a late lunch based on Meghann’s Mexican Casserole; I was out of salsa, but had some leftover tomato puree to use up from last night’s soup, so decided to mix that into the casserole with some chilli flakes. I also put the cheese and yoghurt on top instead of cooking it into the casserole. I think salsa would have been nicer, but just made do with what I had:
For dinner I had spicy chicken stir-fry with peanut sauce:
and an apple:
Later I snacked on a mix of protein powder, cocoa, strawberries and walnuts:
