It’s that time of the month where I need to get a new batch of protein powder…must. find. deals.
Eating breakfast and on week 7.3
Can’t believe im a few weeks away from being a p90x/insanity(2) graduate! Excited, and motivated to keep pushing and digging deeper!
So far, the weekend set me off kind of badly. I had to attend two big birthday bashes, so a. there was alcohol involved. b. Wasn’t able to make a lot out of meals back at home. Back here in my apt, I have all the foods I’ve bought and portioned out throughout the week. But when I get home, its basically Korean food (sweet potatoes, brown rice, a lot of salty stews and etc) I tried to carb-load higher on the weekend, buy eating sweet potatoes, apples and pb. Which might or might not have been better for recovery…
Anyhews, so far, I’ve also switched from my go-to ON whey to Body fortress’s bundle pack. It’s pretty good economically and taste-wise, I stick by ON but its honestly not that bad.
- vanilla: 7.5/10 Eh.. Kinda Bland in the flavor department. (I use this to mix-in for morning pancakes, regular protein recipes [carrot protein muffins, lemon protein bars««FREAKING FAIL LOL]
- cookies n’ creme: 9/10 yum! honestly, the best one out of all of them for morning and even dessert. I prefer mixing this in my protein pancakes rather than vanilla.
- chocolate peanut butter: 8/10 always use this for my post-workout shake. BANANANANANA makes this sooo much yummier.
I heard there’s a little bit of creatine in the concetration… I heard it makes you bloat a little without drinking enough water.. not sure if its good or bad. I don’t really think it should be!
Anywhos, I packed some turkey muffins and bits of burnt lemon protein bars for school and I’ll be doing Back+Biceps and ABX… hoping to get out of the skinny-fat shape soon. muscalllzz where are uuu
Did Chest and Back today instead of back&biceps (got stuck in the phase 1 pattern), i was working out and my roommate was mentioning that my arm got more muscular which should mean my protein plans working?
I have so much midterms, so little time….My schedule looks like classes- 1hr/30min break-classes- workout/shower fucking quick- classes. so its really hard to squeeze eating more and upping protein intake. However, I realized that if you plan ahead of time and actually cook/bake on-the-go protein snacks it really helps you feel satiated (#nostomachgrowlinginclass) and helps you workout harder and see results faster.
I was researching up on p90x2 yesterday night and found that many have exalted its focus on core performance but many critique it on its lack of strength-training, muscle-building focus like its predecessor. So I was thinking it was more of a supplement to pushing harder in p90x after you strengthen your core,flexibility and balance.
And then I also stumbled on this 8-week program called Rushfit by GSP (MMA fighter) which combine HIIT cardio and free weights and supposedly produces quickass results!
I’m planning out the rotation of gym regimens that I want to accomplish throughout this year. But not focus solely on finishing the programs, A-B but really use it as a stepping point to start using the gym facility at my school and pump some real iron
so im planning to do something like this:
1. complete p90x/insanity hybrid
2. LiveFit+p90x2/running (spring quarter weather rocks at my uni, we’re by the beach!)
3. p90x+Rushfit during the summer
…then gym it forevar.
There’s simply nothing bleak about committing to making yourself a better person inside and out for the long run. Yeah I know there are ups and downs but at least I know I can do it. If I can, I will. If I can, I’ll do it the right way.
so seriously, if you’re reading this and your main focus is to get skinny(-fat)…you need to seriously meet my best friend (weights)<3
