    Metroins Healthy Living Log: version 3

    Background:
    I gained extra bf due to the inability to control my diet, coupled with the inability to go to physical therapy during covid and due to recent injuries, -- right ankle, left bicep, left rotator cuff --. It would have been a wise choice to continue eating healthy but my wife and I chose to eat out more, which led to non tracking of caloric intake, increase in bodyfat accompanying a decrease in muscle mass.

    Purpose of Log:
    A personal log to hold myself accountable and seek support from others. I enjoy typing my logs like a diary.

    Nutritional Philosophy:
    IIFYM is okay, but there is a clear benefit to eating less processed foods. I have chosen to use a fresh meal prep company for my meals; the focus is less carbs and higher protein, similar to keto but not. My wife will try to cook me food, I will tell her No.

    Injuries:
    Right ankle sprain in 2020, super weak, bad rom.
    Left Bicep tear in 2014, cannot go heavy.
    Left Rotator Cuff in 2015, cannot trust benching a barbell.

    Ankle is from a fall down stairs.
    Bicep is from heavy preacher curls, bad form.
    Rotator cuff is from mountain bike accident, but I had issues before that.

    Thoughts of Day:
    Worked a lot, stressful day with incompetence of staff all day. I did not get in a proper workout and I feel that my diet is a little higher on carbs than I wish.

    I'll likely cut out the Guinness in the coming week, I didn't plan to drink any tonight but if I wanted to be somewhat pleasant for family time I needed to take the edge off.

    Gingerbread Pancakes with Sausage
    720 calories, 26g protein, 39 g fat, 76g carbs

    Lunch:
    Jalapeno Burger No Bun
    770 calories, 33g protein, 69g fat, 12g carbs

    Dinner:
    Taco Bowl
    580 calories, 45g protein, 19g fat, 19g carbs

    Snack:

    Liquid Intake:

    Total: 2,560 calories, 104g protein, 137g fat, 149g carbs

    Workout:
    Cleaned our workout room, it still has Christmas decorations that I have not taken into our second attic.

    Changing all of our lights to Philip's hue and wiring the boxes to always be on with hue dimmers on top.

    I contemplated whether to put this in the Nutrition forum or the Losing Fat forum but I know the answers to my own questions, so I put it in my diary/log to talk it out with myself.

    Sometimes I have to work late: wake up 6am, work until 1 or 2am, then wake up again at 6am...all computer work. Whenever I have these long work sessions, I wake up with an insatiable hunger and need to eat immediately, then an hour later I need a second breakfast or else I can't focus on work for the rest of the day. That means 2 breakfasts, both around 400-600 calories each; this happens around once a week. Since I know this is going to happen in the morning, I am going to mitigate the damage.

    What fulfilling breakfasts can I eat twice, but at around 300 calories each? I prioritize work over nutrition/health currently.

    Protein shake doesn't cut it, nor does extra water. I have tried cutting out a meal on those days (1 breakfast or 2 breakfast skip lunch), but then I am dragging all day and my work suffers. I'm thinking a smoothie. If I know I am going to be up late, I should make a heavy green smoothie in the morning, then eat my second breakfast.

    I think a smoothie solves this issue.

    Thoughts of Day:
    Last Monday of the month means financials day. I was up late last night preparing financials and also working on sysadmin duties of our websites. Today was rough waking up, took some Dayquil to feel better.

    With new Healthcare legislation on the horizon, I have been putting in a lot of hours at work. I'm also expanding my research company in my spare time.

    I will workout after work.

    Food Intake:(1-25-2021)
    Breakfast:
    Grilled Chicken Piccata
    660 calories, 41g protein, 50g fat, 15g carbs

    Homemade Egg Tacos
    400 calories, 30g protein, 29 g fat, 30g carbs


    Lunch:
    Blackened Shrimp
    590 calories, 36g protein, 42g fat, 20g carbs

    Dinner:
    2 Tuna Patty's, Asparagus, Salad
    600 calories, 60g protein, 20g fat, 40g carbs

    Snack:

    Liquid Intake:
    4x coffee, 80oz water

    Total: 2250 calories, 167g protein, 141g fat, 105g carbs

    Workout:
    Lightweight before bed full body, primarily stretching
    Curls (don't extend fully)
    Lateral Raise (don't lockout)
    Overhead Press (don't lockout)
    Bodyweight squats (don't pivot)

    I have a lot of injuries, I am trying to test their range of motion and capabilities before adding heavy weight again. It looks like I cannot do exercises with straight arms or straight legs. I also cannot rotate my ankle with weight on it....squat form must really be perfect.

    I had a mountain biking accident about 5 years ago and in June of last year I fell down some stairs from our upper backyard to our lower. My ankle is still very damaged and my left arm could drop the weights at any moment.

    Tens Unit:
    I purchased a tens unit and put it on my knees for 20 minutes. My first time using one, we will see how they feel tomorrow before I try it on my ankle.

    I hope the pads are multiple use.

    Thoughts of Day:
    Feel good today. Larger breakfast because I plan to go Mountain Biking this afternoon. Work was busy, expansion is underway and we are trying to acquire a competitor at a reasonable price.

    --
    I really need to not put heavy weight over the top of my head. My left arm cannot be trusted.

    I can definitely tell a difference on the days I do not use the TENS unit. I am using it now to lessen my pain tomorrow.

    Need to actively up my water intake.

    Thoughts of Day:
    Yesterday was pretty bad. I had horrible sleep and then a meeting in the morning, so I overate a lot to compensate; I get very exhausted and physically sick if I do not get enough sleep.

    Today I feel much better but still more hungry that usual due to yesterdays binge. I'm going to try to curb it but might overeat a little more today.

    Weather has me down again. Hopefully I can snap out of it. I have been going to bed at 6pm and sleeping at 9pm... no energy to do anything this weekend.

    Feels like depression, but I think it's really just the Texas weather shifting so much.

    Somewhere around 2,400 calories today.
    Yesterday was 3,000.

    Today I ate scrambled eggs, bacon, a turkey patty, a salad, green beans and two turkey patties.

    No exercise, been in bed since 5:30pm; making my son play with me in bed so I don't have to move.

    I have been getting healthier, body weight is down 4%.

    I need to get better at updating my logs with full macros. It is easier to keep full count on a desktop, my phone takes a lot of effort.

    A little worried about tomorrow, I'm supposed to eat pizza with family. Pizza is one meal that always increases my weight by 5 pounds.

    Thoughts of Day:
    Definitely not doing that great this week. The changing of the weather so rapidly (80s -> 40s -> 70s -> 30s -? 60s -> 30s) has been messing with my allergies, making it really difficult to focus on anything. I overeat when I'm feeling fatigued, so the past few days have been around 3,000 calories.

    I have stopped drinking alcohol for the most part, no reason other than I am going to bed at 8:00pm lately.

    I get my second dose of vaccine on Friday.
