hope you feel better soon

 

Thanks.  I appreciate you checking out my log.   

 

I took the green potion last night (NyQuil) and had plenty of sleep.  I've still got the sniffles, but the sinus pressure has let up.  So I'm hoping it's just one of those 24 hour deals.

Weekend Workout partner wasn't feeling it today (Sat.), so we postponed the gym until tomorrow.

Saw that my first NF challenge date starts in about two weeks. Figured I could start brainstorming the goals for it. Everything I do in the challenges should ultimately support my Epic Quest.

For the first challenge I'm thinking about getting my diet under control as the main quest.

The supporting goals probably need to be information gathering kind of stuff at this point, I think? Maybe? Tracking calories daily seems like a no-brainier for one of the three goals. If I don't know how much I'm putting in me, I won't know what changes I need to make. I should probably go ahead and get started on tracking instead of waiting two weeks. Certainly won't hurt.

Not sure what the other two goals could be.

Ideas/suggestions?

Brainstorming for my first Challenge

 

 

After looking through some other people's challenges I think I've narrowed some goals for my first challenge a little more.

 

 

Brainstorming for First Goal

 

I used the calculator at http://iifym.com/tdee-calculator/ to get a rough estimate of my BMR and TDEE right now.

 

est BMR is 1755

est TDEE is 2412

 

Since I just (re)started barbell lifting, I think my numbers will increase for a little while without having to eat a lot.  Seems a good time to me to try to dig into my bodyfat and help level up that quest.

 

 

Brainstorming for Second Goal

 

I've been reading up on protein requirements, and what's out there in the way of non-Bro science suggests that protein gram intake should be between about 0.65 - 0.82 times bodyweight in lbs.  Less doesn't appear to support the body's needs, and more doesn't appear to give any extra benefit and is throwing money to the wind. 

 

The science doesn't seem to take into account that fatter people with lower lean mass probably don't need the same protein intake of a lighter individual whose lean mass is higher.  In other words, a 190 lb guy with 170 lbs of lean body mass probably needs more protein intake than a 190 lb guy with 140 lbs of lean body mass.  In my thinking anyway. 

 

After getting my math on with some numbers assuming healthy bodyfat levels, I came to an adjusted estimate of 0.70 - 0.90 grams of protein per pound of lean body mass.

 

For me right now that's about

 

147 * 0.7 = 103 minimum

147 * 0.9 = 132 max benefit

 

So I'm looking at eating in a range of 103g - 132g of protein daily as a second goal for the challenge.  Aiming for the higher end, but as long as I'm over the minimum it's cool.  I'll take measurements throughout the challenge and adjust the numbers if they change enough to matter.

 

 

Brainstorming for Third Goal

 

I don't know.

 

Maybe fiber intake?  Saturated fat?

 

I'll figure something out.

More First Challenge Brainstorming

 

Got it.  First Challenge will be my quest to get control of my diet through building the habit of information gathering.  It's a recon mission.  Spy on (track) the daily movement of three targets:

 

1) weight

2) calories

3) protein

Amazing progress dude, keep it up and you'll be Arnie before you can say "Schwarzene...!?!" xD

 

Lol, thanks.  Arnold had a pretty freaking amazing body.  Genetics + hard work + steroids.  My genetics are what they are, and I'm not going the steroid route, but I can put in the hard work.

Wow man, you are FORMIDABLE!!! And totally inspiring too!

How often do you intend to post body profile picture progress? Monthly?

Either way, this is super exciting and I look forward to seeing where you're heading towards... :-)
