    Trying desperately to learn the berimbolo
    Just wanted to make a log to keep track of eating up until a tournament. Shouldn't be a large cut (<10lbs) so I don't have to be insane about what I eat.

    Also I'm only cutting down to 199.9 instead of 189.9 like I have in the past. As my first NAGA at purple belt, the weight class goes from every 10lbs. to 175-199.9 so cutting down to 189 is pointless. I might diet down over the next month to 188.5 for US Grappling, but as I'm doing two open divisions, it might be smarter to just train hard to weigh in at the top end of the next bracket @ 203.

    NAGA is in two weeks and US Grappling is in 7.

    Either way, this log is just for me to help me keep track of stuff.

    I figure that I need roughly 2400 for maintenance level

    I weighed in at 196 after a hard gi practice last week, 207 at night after eating, and after getting sick this weekend and eating a bunch of crap, I bloated up to 213. I figure within a day or two of low carb, I will have burned off a little bit of fat and hopefully won't be holding so much water. Should be back to 206-207 by wednesday.

    low carb day again. weight was back at 207 this morning. we found last night that the scale that told me I was 196 was wayyyyyyyyyy off. It told me 189 last night when I was 206.8 after rolling. When I got home and rehydrated I was 213.

    breakfast
    8 eggs &#8211; 32g fat, 48g protein

    lunch
    30 almonds &#8211; 20g fat (15=10g fat)
    shake &#8211; 100g protein

    Dinner
    Chicken - 65g protein
    broccoli - trace
    potatoes - 25g carb

    post-workout
    Chicken - 65g protein
    broccoli - trace
    potatoes - 25g carb
    Fish Oil: 5g

    Totals:
    fat: 57g
    carb: 50g
    protein: 278

    probably should've had more fat in there.

    August 26th, 2010 (10 days out)

    Medium Carb Day (255c, 210p, 25f)


    breakfast
    3 cups milk - 35g carb
    3 cups cheerios - 60g carb

    lunch (forgot my freaking lunch at home, was supposed to be pasta and chili, had to make due with what i had here)
    45 almonds &#8211; 30g fat (15=10g fat)

    dinner
    a whole bunch of mexican food. chips and all. other than the chips and maybe beans and meat (which didn't look greasy), there shouldn't have been any fat in the meal. just the carbs from rice, beans, tortilla (well, maybe that had fat in it), and chips. i desperately needed a refuel. it wasn't a cheat meal, but not as clean as it should've been.

    post-workout
    apple
    half pint of blueberries

    definitely not enough protein today.

    Good luck with the tournaments, wish I had noticed this log sooner.

    I've definitely gotten away from the gi over the past year (not really by choice), but it would be nice to find a no-gi on a weekend I'm not working, studying, etc.

    For naga I have purple belt gi, and expert nogi. Then US Grappling is Purple belt gi, Absolute purple belt gi, Advanced nogi, absolute advanced nogi. Should be fun. wish there were more divisions at naga though. they said since they are giving out champ belts for both of my divisions, they don't want yet another division running at the same time. yikes.

    Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

    Continuing with water loading and uva ursi. Weight is way up at night, but drops really fast the next day. 2 gal of water again today. last medium carb day before comp.

    Medium Carb Day (255c, 210p, 25f)

    breakfast
    3 cup cheerios - 60g carb
    2 cup milk - 25g carb
    toast - 35g carb

    snack
    cliff bar - 43g carb

    lunch (had to travel unexpectedly)
    a bit of pasta
    fresh fruit
    a tiny bit of chicken - 20g pro

    dinner
    piece of chicken and piece of steak - 75g pro
    large plate of pasta (no sauce) and veggies
    big salad

    this dinner was so big i didn't even want any protein later on. I also drank my 2gal of water today. It's rough travelling with colleagues and having to go to the restroom every 20 minutes.

    Wednesday, September 1st, 2010 (3 days out of weigh-in)

    weighed in at 207.5 this morning. this is probably close to my walking weight but if today was cut day, i'd make the weight easily. today is another big water day, then tomorrow is normal (1gal) and friday is very little. low carb from here until cut.

    low carb (85c, 255p, 60f)

    breakfast
    1/4 cup almonds - 15g fat
    protein shake - 100g protein (drank slowly throughout morning)

    lunch
    chicken and steak - 75g protein
    salad - trace carbs
    1.5 tbsp of olive oil - 20g fat

    dinner
    taco salad - 50g protein
    fat free pretzels - 45g carbs
    1/4 cup almonds - 15g fat

    45/85 carbs
    225/255 protein
    50/60 fat

    definitely didn't eat enough today.
