so, i am now on Day 15 of the program and i figured it’s time to check my progress.
earlier today, i took pictures of myself in the same clothes as i did on day one so that i can see if there have been changes, if at all. i placed them side by side to make it easier to see. but, alas. no change yet. which for me is still a good thing because at least i’m not gaining any weight despite cheating on this thing. oops. i mean… errr… hehe.
anyway, here ya go.
after 15 days
like i said, no difference at all. below are the other pics i took.
now this post is not to discredit the Slow Carb Diet or the Four Hour Body. not at all. the lack of change in my body composition is all on me. i am eating better now but obviously, a stricter adherence to the program is required. i think i overdid the exercise a bit. (yes! there is such a thing.) my appetite always increases when i up my physical activity. i expected this from the start. so from now on, i’ll stick to the weights (which require no more than 5 minutes to do. this is probably the reason i add other activities. the Four Hour Body workouts make me think like i haven’t done enough to initiate fat burning) and no cardio.
oh, and some bonus pictures. ;P
got carried away there during the shoot. and i felt a bit playful.
so there you have it. 15 days into this program and all we got so far are funny poses. imma keep at it till it becomes a habit. the program, not the poses. till it’s no longer a struggle to ignore my cravings. till i don’t have to drag my butt out of bed to do my kettlebell swings. till… well, till i’m 85. (i’ll spare you the pics before then, don’t worry.)
i meant for this blog to contain photo logs of my every meal. that way i’d be forced to eat right since failing to do so means failing publicly.
i found out i have a high tolerance for embarrassment. probably the result of years and years of failure. heh. i guess having a thick skin has its down side. no matter. i will still post those pics here, healthy and on track or not.
imma brag today since i ate well. 😉
this was breakfast today. i prepared and ate it about fifteen minutes after waking. i haven’t made an omelet i months and i would’ve preferred poached eggs still but right now i am going for convenience and speed.
oh! over the weekend, i did my groceries and got me ingredients to make some pickled veggies, chilli and fresh salad. my wife said i probably got carried away with it. what do you think?
i don’t think i did. i mean, i was buying stuff for the whole week. and besides, the people at home sometimes get some of the food i prepare. 🙂
so this one’s lunch. now before you react, let me explain. first of all, i didn’t eat the whole thing. second of all i didn’t touch the fries. okay, maybe i got two. three. four tops! i swear!
and this, was my snack this afternoon.i remembered to take a picture of it midway through the meal. whew. i had it a little late, around 5pm so now i still feel full. i guess i can have dinner at 8:30pm.
for now, i got to run. literally. 😉
this is a late post, actually, so i wanna apologize. i will say that i will not try to post my progress everyday as i agree with Yoda when he said, there is no try. so i will, from now on, post everyday what my day on this program looks like. and since i was unable to post yesterday, i am gonna show you how i did these past two days.
yesterday was pretty easy. i set my alarm to wake me up at 5:30am. i jumped out of bed and immediately weighed myself and took my measurements. i made sure i didn’t forget this step because had i forgotten, i wouldn’t have any information to base my progress on. so as much as i dreaded finding out what my measurements were, i got my tape and faced the truth head on.
the results are in:
