4 Weeks to become lean

First Challenge, become leaner. Lets see what 4 weeks can do.

I will be doing the following:

- Eating a specific calorie intake everyday (Diet listed below)
- HIIT training 3 days a week
- Total body workout with weights 3 days a week (offset by cardio)
- 1 Day of rest.

This should kick my ass, but we will see how it holds up. I have been working out 3 days a week for the past year, but I haven't really been watching my diet. I am curious what is going to happen when I do both, and be hardcore about it.

From all my reading on diet to drop body fat you need to reduce your carbohydrate intake. Not all carbohydrates, but specific ones (bread, pasta, etc.) so my diet may seem a little strange to some, but those that have dieted before you know what I am doing. Also, most my carbs will be consumed in the morning.

Diet consists of the following:

Breakfast
1 1/2 cup skim milk with 1 scoop designer protein and 1 Tablespoon Metamusel. (120 cal + 100 cal + 25 cal)
8oz Green Tea

Lunch
16oz Water
Salad (500 cal) consisting of the following:
Romaine Lettuce
Bell Pepper
Cucumber
Almonds
Grilled Chicken or Tuna
Olive Oil and Vinegar

Snack (Pre-workout)
Protein mixed with water (100 Cal) or Tuna (250 Cal)
2 oz String Cheese (80 cal)

Snack (Post-workout)

Protein mixed with Water (100 Cal)

Dinner
1 Breast of Chicken (100 Cal)
3 servings of vegetables (100-120 Cals)
16 oz Water
Wish me luck.

First Weigh in
Weight: 202.2 lbs
Body Fat: 25%

New Year 2007

Well, it is 2007 now, and there are still no flying cars.

My resolutions?

I am going to start posting more on this blog and my other blog, http://rootnews.blogspot.com

This blog will become a new type of blog. I will still attempt to post random links and thoughts as previously done. *cough* *cough* However, I will now attempt something completely new and exciting. I will attempt to do something that I read in Wired this month. 4 weeks. Essentially I will pick something that I want to do for 4 weeks (i.e. run faster, become smarter, eat healthier, etc.) and then I will write my exploits about attempting it.

What do you think?

Cock lays an egg?

"Early in February, news spread of a cock producing an egg. But its owner slaughtered the animal for a Muslim festivity, making checks impossible."

About the previous blog

Decided that my previous blog was a little too personal, even for my own tastes. I am now going to post about either funny things, little happenings, or links to humourous articles.
