1 pull up minute one
2 pull ups minute two
3 pull ups minute three
So, I had to leave early yesterday. I totally planned on doing the posted workout, but Koy and I got to talking, and then ran out of time. So, I did this workout until I had to leave. I made it through 7 rounds using the blue band before "crapping out" as Sam put it. After that, I used the green band. Started on 5, and then made it to 7 before I had to go.
Koy and I talked for a long time about diet and whether or not I was eating the correct amount. He thinks that I may not be eating enough. Which to me is a weird concept. For the past few months, I have been doing 3 block meals with a one block snack. I have felt great while being on this. Some days I feel hungrier than others, but you deal with it. According to www.zonediet.com 's calculations, I need to be eating 17 blocks a day. Wow...that is a lot of food. 17? Seriously? I don't know if I can eat that much. I plan on breaking this down into 5 block meals with (2) 1-block snacks.
I am not quite sure I am seeing the reasoning by telling us to eat more. I had been doing a total of about 9-10 blocks of protein/carbs a day. I do know that I have not been getting enough fat. Again, hard time justifying that I need to eat more fat. Yes, I understand that it is healthy fat, but still......
I am running into another problem. I have been getting good advice from all of the trainers. But what do I do when I have conflicting views? First, I don't eat beef. Yes, you read right, I don't eat beef. Never liked it since I was a kid. I realize that this cuts out a huge protein choice for meals. Most of my protein comes from chicken. I eat it about twice a day. One trainer says it's ok to have turkey bacon, and another says no. According to the ZoneDiet website, turkey bacon is okay. So, what do I do?
So, I will try this new meal plan. I still plan on having 1-2 cheat meals a week. We will see how this goes......
