I haven’t kept up my food journal. It’s a lot of work although I think it would probably be beneficial to meeting my workout targets. I couldn’t find anything that helped me quickly calculate nutrition information for the meals I eat. I tend to make all my own food for supper and I’m a non-measuring type cook so it’s very difficult to track what I’ve done!
The good news is the workouts are continuing and I’m already seeing improvements. It feels good to sit at your desk and actually feel the muscles on your body instead of just feeling like a gelatinous blob. I’m absolutely appalled at the low weights that I’m doing but that will improve with time. I didn’t realise that I had let my strength slip so much! The last time I really did weight training with free weights was in Dallas around 1998 so it’s been a while.
