Since I've respawned I might as well re-start my battle log again: Hi!! I'm Noddy - short for Nadoriel. Welcome to my Grinding log! I'm a nurse and a geek. That basically means that in between my nursing deeds I also read, draw, listen to music, play MMOs, cook, garden, clean the house and work out in the gym. Nursing is my main life skill to attain money for traveling, getting a house and probably acquiring new and amazing items for my inventory. Everything else is for fun and also to keep me fit and healthy ^^ My main character goal is to get fit. I'm pretty much healthy, I reckon. But the chubbiness is not welcome, and I totally want to cosplay one day. And everyone knows manga characters are usually not chubby! At least the ones I like ^^ So here's what I've been doing: BLE weight loss protocol diet. BLE means maintaining bright lines. There are a few of them, but I kind adapted them to my life. Right now that means: - No cacau/chocolate of any any any kind. EVER; - No sugar and avoid sweeteners like the plague; - No flour of any kind; - Eat 3 times a day; - Drink plenty; - Keep BLE portions reasonably. BLE portions stand as follow: Breakfast: 1 protein, 1 fruit, 1 starch/grain Lunch: 1 protein, 6oz veggies, 1 fruit Dinner: 1 protein, 14oz veggies Fruit is supposed to make around 6oz. Protein is around 8oz for milk/yogurt, 4oz for meats and fresh cheese, 2oz matured cheese and nuts. Weight lifting: I've been using Stronglifts since June but already stalling, so I will start with Starting Strenght to try it out when I come back from holidays. So far I've got: - Squats: 52.5kg - OHP: 22.5kg with some jumping to managed the whole sets - Deadlift: failed today at 67.5kg - Bench press: failed on 32.5kg - Row: 32.5kg I'm training 2x week, since I work long shifts and my days off are usually paired together - not advised for weight training. And this is me! I'm also playing on Europe servers Black Desert Online, if anyone fancies it... =P at least until I buy a new laptop that allows me to play Witcher 3!
