I had mentioned in a post about whey protein and how I am not sure it helps. My friend (who is non existent most of the times) APC, mailed me and convinced me to try it.
I bought the best whey protein within my budget from healthkart.com. It has been a month since I started having it in milk after every workout. I generally add 1 scoop in 1 glass of milk… so, 2 workouts equal 2 scoops per day.
Today was my BMI and measurement day and these are the results:
– My fat weight has been steadily decreasing and is the lowest this month despite my indulgence in desserts last 2 weeks (damn you yummy red velvet cupcakes and Westin buffet). The decrease is slow… but thats ok. Losing fat is damn difficult and I am ok with slow but steady. I think long runs (14-15km) once every week have also helped this.
My muscle weight has never been highest (except for Dec’13). I had been struggling to reach the same muscle weight as that in Dec but could not… until now. The whey has helped and I want the weight to go up from here. No more ups and downs… it is up, up and further up.
In winters I was waiting for summer for pleasant runs and now it feels like torture. I generally run at 6.30 am on Sundays (cannot wake up earlier) and it is so sunny. I am ok with the heat but the sun overhead makes me very tired. I could not finish my 15 km today and it was quite frustrating. I walked for atleast 5 km. Bugger!!!
The only solution is to run at 5 am. Sigh!!! Waking up at 4.30 am is unimaginable right now. But it needs to be done.. after all, it is just one day of the week and I can always come back at 7 am and sleep.
