On diets and derrieres part 2


I blogged on my pseudo diet a couple days ago in Part 1 of this post. The takeaways were

  • Measure your food

  • Eat often

So here’s what yesterday was like in terms of what I had to eat:

Breakfast at 7 am

1 cup cream of wheat made with

1 cup milk

1 tablespoon peanut butter

1/2 pack sweetener (I use Splenda)

1 tsp cinnamon

and a morning prayer 🙂

Lunch part 1 at 11 am

1 cup brown rice

1/2 cup mixed veges (includes diced sweet peppers, whole kernel corn, sliced mushrooms)

1/2 cup inside round roast (beef)

unlimited water

Lunch part 2 at 3 pm

1 whole wheat pita with

1/2 cup inside round roast (strips/slices)

1 slice avocado

tablespoon of corn, a few strips of sweet pepper and a couple slices of mushrooms

1 tsp of ketchup and mustard each

more water

Dinner at 6:30 to 7 pm (depends on when I get home)

1 pita or wrap with

1 boiled/ scrambled egg (breakfast food is great anytime!)

a few strips of sweet pepper

1 tsp mustard and some parsley flakes

1 cup mango juice (I love Oasis tropical mango… and as an Island girl I know what a real mango should taste like)

Dessert/late night snack

1/2 cup yogurt

1 bite size chocolate 

Of course this is just an example. It depends on what’s in season and what’s on sale (I am a “poor grad student”). On Sundays I usually make something nice for dessert so look out for a recipe sometime soon!


I promised last time to share a link to the abductor machine tutorial here at bodybuilding.com (a great resource for every fitness level). The single-legged leg press is demonstrated here. The machine I use is a little different but you should get the idea. Also remember, the higher up you position your foot, is the higher up your hamstring that will work (i.e. closer to your buttocks).

Keep pumping,
