  2. Hey Guys! How are you doing? I am feeling pretty exhausted lately, during my swimming i end up almost dead... I am not sure why is this happening i though i was low on vitamins i started taking vitamins, i though it was my asthma so i started using my spray before workouts, i though i was not eating well and i am taking care to fill up my carbohydrates for energy and my protein for my muscles. I am very confused, my girlfriend has only a couple of day swimming without floater and now she is swimming more laps then me and much faster. The funny thing is that only happen in my swimming drills, during my strength training i am feeling full of energy. The only difference when i do strength with when i swim is the fact that i have to wake so early and i sleep less...
  3. Today i get my new HRM and this works as i want to, so next week i will be able to track my burned calories with a bit more accuracy. Thank you, yes you should try to become a productivity ninja, i am not rocking it, but im trying hard.

  4. Today i wasted one hour of my life right after my swimming my girlfriend told me she wants to breakfast at Carl's jr. I was like, sure, it cant be that bad. So i ordered a breakfast meal without too much guilty, but as soon as it entry the nutritional facts on My Fitness Pal i shocked :| 1,200 Calories.. Ok not so bad, i check for my carbs, fat and protein rate and there is where realize what of waste of workout. 30g protein >__> really? 1200 calories and only 30g of protein, 71g from fat and 105g carbs. So, i have learned my lesson no more Carl's Jr, the calories are not the problem here, but the emptiness of those calories.
  5. Nice to see you around =D, im not an underpants collector but to be honest im not sure how may i made a good plan, i know i spent so much time playing erepublik, visiting this forum and facebooking, so maybe i could be a nice goal to adjust my rate for example 1 productivity hour for every hour procrastinating and maybe increase it to 2:1 hours and so on.... Sleep has become an important task since i started with the serious workout. Yesterday thank to the post of the house of Gryffindor i noticed the mini-challange #2 and it bring me to sign that i should be aiming for twice protein intake oO, i though i should be aiming for 0.8 g per kg i weight, but after i took another read i realize i should be consuming 0.8 g per pound, so i am going to double my goal for proteins!!! [battle Log] Day 9 - June 11 Exercise: Nerthux Tracked a Workout for 374 pts 11 Jun, 2013Jumping Jacks:50 jumping jacks (+15 pts)Kneeling Push-Up:10 reps (+5 pts Dumbbell Squat:6.8 kg x 12 reps (+39 pts)6.8 kg x 12 reps (+39 pts) 6.8 kg x 12 reps (+39 pts)Bent Over Two-Dumbbell Row:6.8 kg x 12 reps (+40 pts)6.8 kg x 12 reps (+40 pts) 6.8 kg x 12 reps (+40 pts)Overhead Dumbbell :6.4 kg x 12 reps (+28 pts)6.4 kg x 12 reps (+28 pts)6.4 kg x 12 reps (+28 pts Bird-Dog:10 reps (+5 pts)10 reps (+5 pts)10 reps (+5 pts Exercise Ball Crunch:10 reps (+6 pts)10 reps (+6 pts)10 reps (+6 pts) Calories Tracking: Productivity Ninja: See Next Day =/ Day 10 - Junes 12 Exercise: Swimming !! My instructor let me swim before i get tired so i can measure my progress and i am at 25 M which is halfway. The best part i that i was able to swim 25 M 4 times!! and my rest times every class are getting lower and lower... i guess that is a good sign of progress... My Girlfriend i taking this challenge with me, but she is shy to share in this forum, but she didn't know how to swim and now she is able to swim without float bars =D Calorie Tracking: Productivity Ninja: So... this day i have bad news... this day i try to run a report from my tracking app and surprise surprise, it stops recording since Day 3 >__>, i didn't know that i should manually start the app every time i reboot my computer, now i force it to auto-start, but i lost some day from data entry...
  6. This is not going to be hard for me xD, i am always 95g+ protein everyday :S, as TheGingerDances said before i am carnivore xD Sometimes i have to struggle to not overeat proteins :S
  7. 3 Days Without activity How are you doing guys? Let us know !!!
  8. I didn't take my rest week at the end of the last challenge, and lately i am felling tired =/ today i woke up to 11:00 a.m. :S, i turned off my alarm at 8:30 a.m. but i felt asleep again. I will make sure that i am sleep enough and eating well. Before start with my log, i want to do a little resume for week 1. [RESUME] Goal 1: Swimming. I went to swim 3 days on this week, i am not sure how to measure my progress because my trainer has been making me do a lot of breath exercise before start swimming and when i do my first lap i am very tired and i am not sure how far may i swim without stop if i were at my 100%. Goal 2: Strength. Except for my Day 2 when i had to do a hasted workout, i made all my workout, i am not ready yet to add more weigh i think this workout is optimal for my current state. Goal 3: Calories Tracking. As you know i am using MyFitnessPal for this goal, and according to the app, week 1 i made a 4310 deficit, but to be honest, my swimming session it counts for 805 burned calories, i don't think i burn so much for swimming, and it just 250 calories for my strength training, so i made some changes and adjust that to 550 calories for swimming and 300 for Strength and now it says 3555 which is still over 3500 calories/week. Goal 4: Productivity Ninja: I am still in the data entry stage, unfortunately my work is very random so it is hard to identify unproductive pattern because it is very rare for me to do the same task every day. [battle Log] Day 8 - June 10 Exercise: Swimming Calories Tracking: Productivity Ninja: I notice that my swimming days are by far more productive because i start my day early and i can invest my time more efficiently.
  9. Actually i was planning to keep it, this morning the seller emailed me and told me that if change my eBay feedback to a positive one they was going to send me a total refund and i was keeping the HRM anyway. I didn't liked very much this offer because i though it wasn't fair for the seller, but after that i went to the pool and as soon it touches the water it stopped working (despite of its suppose to be water resists 30ft under), so now i am accepting the full refund without regrets. I don't like to swim in the ocean, the water is so polluted here... wauk.. but the water in the pool is very clean and warm, despite that is cold at 5:30 a.m. the water is perfect. [battle Log] Day 6 - June 8 Exercise Strength Training Jumping Jacks:50 jumping jacks (+15 pts)50 jumping jacks (+15 pts Kneeling Push-Up:10 reps (+5 pts)10 reps (+5 pts) 10 reps (+5 pts)10 reps (+5 pts Dumbbell Squat:6.8 kg x 15 reps (+40 pts)6.8 kg x 15 reps (+40 pts) 6.8 kg x 15 reps (+40 pts)Overhead Dumbbell Squat:6.8 kg x 10 reps (+28 pts)6.8 kg x 10 reps (+28 pts) 6.8 kg x 10 reps (+28 pts)Exercise Ball Crunch:10 reps (+6 pts)10 reps (+6 pts) 10 reps (+6 pts)Plank:20 sec (+7 pts)20 sec (+7 pts) 20 sec (+7 pts)Calories Tracking: Some red alert should be blinking right here, 1500 calories in one day and 400 of them was for a candy i ate. So 1,100 Calories of real food, it is not enough to maintain this big boy :S Productivity Ninja: Uff total fail, i was at home all day long and i completely forgot to fill my form Day 7 - June 9 Exercise REST DAY, i am not sure what the heck i did different last workouts but i felt DOMs all day :S, i didn't had DOMs since 2 months ago. Calorie Tracking: Ok, i guess for food it was my REST DAY too, because this has been the only day where i exceed my calorie intake limit but that ice cream tasted like heaven Productivity Ninja: I took my role of REST DAY so serious, i didn't track anything but i can tell you... all my day was resting so in some way all my day was productive xD
  10. Not really i just found that i spent too much time on this forum xD... this is my main distraction on the day Thank you !!! Before start my battle log, i have to tell you, this morning i wake up very early i get to the US border (I am at Mexico) i hurried to my PO BOX because my shinning new HRM was there, waiting for me... There was a note for pick up a package, i was exited, finally i got my package, open it and my precious HRM was a joke n__n. I mean is a very nice watch but it was not what i was expecting, the description was completely inaccurate, i was expecting a HRM with chest belt so i were able to real-time monitor my pulse and get a more accurate guesstimate on my burned calories instead of that it comes with a infrared sensor to put there my finger tip, wait a couple of seconds and it will display my pulse. Also it comes with a exercise mode, so i start the timer, and at the end of the workout i take my pulse and i will say something like 300 Cal. So it suppose that i burned 300 calories during the workout but that is very inaccurate because at the end of the workout my hearth rate is very low compared with when i am doing my lifts. So, i got a nice watch, nothing more . Anyway... [battle Log] Day 5 - June 7 Exercise: Swimming Day !!! i attended to my swimming class and i felt great, i mean i felt full of energy i didn't had the need for too much resting; i am not sure if this has something to do with fact that one day before i started drinking my protein shake with vitamins or i just was on the mood for swimming. either way that was awesome Calories Tracking: I think this has been the day with most calories intake on the entire challenge, even higher then when i got that burger for dinner , but i take like 14 tortillas all day long xD not wise... Productivity Ninja: Now i have been just collecting data, i have not done yet some review on my activities, but at least i am already doing some proper data entry .
  11. Kick Boxing... it is simply great, lots of fun, lots of burned calories. I used to practice Muay Thai but my shinbone is really fragile and i was hurt always when i try to stop the kicks =/ I am not a big fan of soccer (even when i am at mexico where it is a BIG DEAL) but it seems pretty much like a very fun way to get in shape. Sometimes i have to travel for work and the Hotel Workout is really good for it. Keep going!!!
  12. jaja i don't know how i missed you challenge with that awesome topic name again jaja your Iron Maiden theme rules, actually i was listening to Aces High and suddenly i remember "i haven't seen Laces on this challenge..." Nice to know you are kicking some assess with your goals. I will stay tuned to your progress
  13. Great !!! I hope next week you will be more relaxed to go on with your challenge. Always remember to rest properly, you don't want to to get exhausted so early in the challenge. Cheers!!!
  14. Hey Micheler, how are you doing on you challenege? How are you feeling?
