View Full Version : Shoebawk's Journal

09-29-2007, 04:40 PM
Hello all, I am 15, 5'7" and 160 pounds, about 23% BF. I decided to keep a journal to possibly better my progress and to have comments to make sure I am doing the right thing. I have JUST started lifting, and I was trying to follow BGB for the past 2 weeks, and I like it, but am debating between that and WBB 1.1. Anyways, I have been eating fairly well, trying to log in all of my food into fitday, even though the weekend I'm typing this I went all out on crappy food because of my friend's birthday party :( .

But I will start again with my routine on Monday, and will be doing cardio both today and tomorrow. Last summer I lost 40 pounds without knowing anything about diet or exercise, I just ran a lot and stopped eating crappy food/ drinking soda. But after reading several articles, I am more knowledgable now. Anyhoo I'm going to do about 25-35 minutes of SS cardio today.

Alright, well I completely forgot about the journal, but I have found new motivation. I have cut down a lot since I posted last, and I will now be using this as a training log. I wanted to cut my weight down nicely, which I did, to 143, and now I want to start a slow clean bulk. My training is pretty much based off of BGB.
