I'm a thin man. In fact I'm a see my hipbones thin man. And while it may not be easy to hear someone tell me to eat something at least once a week, I understand where it's coming from.
I live in the Midwest...and if a man isn't packing at least average weight (which here is actually about 30 - 80 extra pounds of Ground Beef that has been packed on to his stomach and his ass) there is SOMETHING WRONG.
Don't get it turned though...I'm not mad at 'em. I understand that at the core of the comments is concern.
But there are things that I want people to understand as well.
I thought it was important to address the issues of this thin man (and my guess is of many others as well):
I am active.
My metabolism is insane.
I eat a lot (probably not enough for my body type, but a lot)
I never stop moving (even in my sleep)
I have a hard time eating a big breakfast.
Now, I'm pretty sure the last time I weighed 98 lbs was before I had any pubic hair.
But then again I'm 6' tall.
and my whole adult life I have weighed between 130-145 lbs.
SO THE GOAL: To Gain 35lbs this year
After a kidney stone and falling on my face on Halloween (a long story to be told at a later date), my weight is lower than usual at a whopping
The Goal by 2012: 170
Now,In order to gain 20 pounds I have been told by a dietary guide that I should be taking in 4400 calories a day with muscle training.
Am I a blogger? I don't know yet.
Am I on a Mission? Yes.
Will this help? Maybe....I have found Public Scrutiny to be a huge motivator in just about everything in life....and if this blog helps me or anyway else in my predicament, I figure why not? Get it all out there...so here we go...
What I ate today:
Kashi Blueberry Cereal
4 Pepsis (I know gross, got to get this in check)
A Swiss and Mushroom Burger from Culvers
Nachos and salsa
2 Cheese and 1 Chicken Enchilada
4 pieces of Russell Stover's Caramels
Spinach Salad with Avocado, cucumber, onion, tomato, goat and cottage cheese and Peppercorn Dressing.
20 0z of Orange Juice
1 Bottled Water
Calories : ??????
3 reps on push ups, curls, and shoulder work with dumbbells
Is this what I should be doing ????????? I think its a good start.
