This is Kiwi reporting for duty - Im a New Zealand Girl, but travel a lot for work and adventure.

 

Im a Scout  :love_heart: and am currently undertaking my third NF challenge.  As part of this challenge Im tracking what I eat everyday - also running in my trusty vibrams, planking like a boss and attempting to not procrastinate so much!

 

So here I am - I have no intention of tracking calories etc this is just for observation at this stage to I can make small tweaks and learn what I can improve on.

A suggestion for your diets is to find out what body type you are. The standard ones are ectomorph, endomorph, mesomoprh, xenomorph and necromorph. Ok so just the first three. Ectomorphs are tall, long limbs, slopped shoulders and flat chests; don't worry about diet your body will take care of itself

Mesomoprh, muscular, strong, good posture. Eat well enough but really exercise is the keeps here as your body will oack on the muscle when needed and the fat when not

Oops pressed the wrong button

As for endomorph, you are probably going to be fat with very little muscle but enough to get around and maybe do some stuff at the gym.

Once you know you can plan your meals better. Like I said ectomorphs just don't put on weight until they are about 35 half because of a strong metabolism and half because their bodies do not take in the fats, mesomorph just exercise and endomorph consider heavy exercise and paleo diet

I def think Im a Mesomoprh - Im medium build and neither chubby nor thin.  I find as long as I dont over indulge in sugar Im ok. I can put on some muscle but no matter how hard I try I cant get bigger muscles (I mean Im a girl so that was never really going to happen anyway).  But I am not someone who can eat what they want - done that and I just put on fat.

Ok catch up time

 

Monday

Exercise: stonglifts – squats, bench press and barbell rows.  Abs and roll out.  I really don’t like bench press and barbell rows, yuck yuck yuck.

Food:

Pregym protein shake with almond milk

Post gym protein shake

Don’t remember what I ate during the day – one day unlogged.

½ box scorched almonds – deliberate food binge – was sad, went to shop and got chocolate.

 

Tuesday:

20 min run includig 3 hill reps of Baldwin st.

Prerun latte

Post run/lunch – gluten free chicken sand-which/ savoury scone.

Snack; Protein shake with half avocado and tspoon cocoa.

dinner: brussel sprouts with hazelnuts and blue cheese.

1 glass red wine (went to café/bar before going to movies, resisited café food because I knew I had heaps of vegis at home to cook up hence brussle sprouts based dinner).

The other half of box scotched almonds (yes I hid in my room and ate these at 10pm, sad but true.), hot lemon honey and ginger (getting sick)

 

Wednesday

Gym – squats (warm ups then 3 sets – 5x 55kg, one set 60kg found very hard)

OH press – warm up: one set each at 5x 20kg, 5x 22.5. 3 sets 5x25kg, 1 x 5 @22.5 as struggled to finish last set at 25kg.

Dead lifts, warm ups: 5 reps @40kg, 50kg, 3 @60, 65, 70, 75, 80.  1 rep at 85, 90, 95.  Attempted 100kg but I just couldn’t get my hand grip and complete the top half of lift – looking forward to hitting this goal another day preferably not after a killer hill run ses the day before. Will prob go back to normal deadlifts for next 3 sessions and try for another 100kg max in 2 weeks.  Feeling slighty warrior-ish and kinda like it, but the scout in me is like nooooo, less weights and more runs – but I want to get strong so I can get back into triathlons and running.  Pew still scoutly long term goals.

Food:

Pregym hot lemon honey and ginger drink mixed with tea

Breakfast: Vanilla protein shake with cow milk, tea.

Snack: Latte with ½ scoop protein powder, more tea, 2 bottles of water

Lunch: Gluten free sandwhich (savoury scone) with salad, feta, olives and sundried tomato pesto. (ate at 11am as tummy had the mean growls going on)

Snack: normal Latte, 100g dried biltong (south African style beef jerky – ooohhhh so good!), more tea and another bottle of water.

Dinner: Daddy date – had veitnamese! Starter rice paper rolls with vegis and chicken, main: beef panang curry and chicken satay on rice.  (didn’t eat much rice, filled up on the meat and vegis).  First time I have had peanuts since I went legume free early last challenge. 

Movies with daddy: White choc with macadamias  ¼ of block.
