What's Your Schedule?

I am looking for specifics here. I want to know exactly what your diet and exercise plan looks like. What do you eat? How many calories? How often do you workout? How hard? What specific workout schedule do you use? I am not looking for a website or "diet book/plan". I want to know exactly what is working for you so I can either implement some of the schedule or follow by example...Come on guys and gals give me something detailed to go with...

My schedule looks exactly like the one outlined in The Abs Diet...and you're already looking at a website to find out what to do!

Most of the websites that I have looked at give you unrealistic gym schedules. I work full time, have 3 kids and a grandchild to take care of, and I am finishing my Masters degree. I need a schedule example that really works for someone that involves jogging, strength training, and yoga but that leaves time for such a busy life/work/school schedule as well. I am not able to go spend 2 hours in a gym. I would like to see how someone else overcame a busy schedule and see how their workout and diet plan looks...

To the 5:15 poster: Bud did it work for you? How long did it take to see the results? What results have you had? I think what we are looking for is specifics.

When I first started, I followed the South Beach Diet pretty closely and did the Couch to 5K running program coupled with at least 30 minutes on the elliptical every day.

Now that I'm in maintenance mode, I run between 23-31 miles a week, eat around 2,100 calories a day and walk my dog at least a mile a day.

I wake up at 5 a.m., eat breakfast (usually scrambled egg white, egg; turkey bacon; 2 pieces nature's own light wheat bread; sugar free jam; I Can't Believe It's NOt Butter Spray; a whole zucchini (pan seared); and coffee)

I have two morning snacks (almonds, or Luna bar, or apple, or whatever is my favorite fruit of the day)

I have lunch at around Noon or 1 p.m.

I have two afternoon snacks: (usu. trail mix, fruit or yet another Luna bar)

I have dinner at 7 p.m. (usually chicken tacos w/ guacamole, black beans)

I have two evening snacks: usually ice cream (weight watchers or Skinny Cow or toast)

I eat a lot, but I will tone down my eating once my marathon is over.

Good luck.

PP here, I forgot. After breakfast I run or do the elliptical.

That is a great example! Just the kind of information I am looking for. It really sinks in that you can actually eat more as long as your workouts are supporting the need for extra food intake. Thanks! anyone else?

My schedule, on the best weeks, looks like this:

5:30am - 6:15am: Gym (treadmill warm up then strength training routine M/W/F - and 30 treadmill or rowing machine Tu/Th/Sat)

7:30am: big glass of water mixed w/ 1 packet emergen-C and a heaping tablespoon of chia.

8:30am: fruit for breakfast, w/ 1/2 serving raw almonds

12pm: lunch (usually salad w/ rice and beans or salad and a bean/pea soup)

3pm: 1/2 serving raw almonds

7pm: Gym - swim laps for 30 min, usually Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun

7:45pm: dinner - usually quick stir fry (without a lot of oil) of some veggies and tofu, or a spinach & fruit smoothie, or cucumbers and hummus, plus a smaller serving of fruit for dessert (unless I'm having a fruit and spinach smoothie).

10pm: bed.

I've been staying on track with the eating portion of this since July 22. The exercise portion is what varies, because I work anywhere from 40 hours a week to 60. And ideals aside, that DOES impact whether I get to the gym or not. On days where getting to and from the gym is tough, due to my schedule, i at least try to get off the subway between 10 and 20 blocks before I need to, and hoof it the rest of the way home.
