41 Days - Stronglifts - Week 1 - Wednesday

I am really not crazy about coffee with milk and protein powder. It's not awful, and I can drink it. It's just not my coffee. I'm hoping I just need time to adjust. Today was the first day taking my two big cups to work with no creamer. It's still the same number of points (that I was counting) but the macros are better. I've been way over on carbs lately, mostly because of the creamer. I could eat so much more if I could give it up. Calorie-wise, I'm saving about 200 calories with the protein powder. Bah! It sucks.

Workout B-1

squat - 5x5x75 lbs
overhead press - 5x5x45 lbs
deadlift - 1x5x85 lbs

The overhead presses were fucking brutal. By my last set, I couldn't do a 5 in a row. I did 3, racked the bar for a minute, then did the last 2. There is no way in hell I can increase it to 50 pounds next week. No. Way.


Breakfast - coffee w/ milk & protien powder [11]
Lunch - Nothing. I was still choking down my coffee.
Dinner - pork loin & quinoa bean salad [14]

I was under on points (again) and really under calories. I hit my carb goal for the day but was way under on protein and fat. It took everything in me just to eat all my dinner. I really need to work on eating during the day. I packed a good lunch for tomorrow but a lot depends on what I decide for coffee creamer when I get up.
