Thanks. It's a pretty general phrase.

I changed it for you, I'm sure you were referring to having the same journal title. I assure you it was coincidental.

Tired as hell. Worked this morning, never thought it was going to end. I haven't gone heavy like this in a long while. So sore. Can't wait till next week to do it again :).

MEAL1:
PLAIN BAGEL WITH CREAM CHEESE AND GLASS OF ORANGE JUICE
MEAL2:
SMALL CAN OF MT. DEW, BANANA, VANILLA YOGURT, AND BOTTLED WATER
MEAL3:
HAM, CHEESE, MAYO, TOMATO, AND OLIVE OIL SANDWICH, MILK, AND FEW COOKIES
MEAL4:
FEW COOKIES AND SOME MILK
--- HAD SOME LIGHT APPLE JUICE A LITTLE LATER

Over all today I was super tired as I usually am on Thursdays. Tomorrow is an easier day at work, and I do squats after work. I should be super sore again, first time doing 5x5 on squats as well in quite a long time. Should be happy to end it with 315x5. Not gonna push it too hard just yet on anything with the 5x5 especially since I'm trying to lean down substantially. Another note to self is I need to watch my good foods vs bad foods a little more. I need to cut out the 7 11 chocolate milks, and higher fat quantity foods. I've cleaned my diet out quite a bit though as it is. I'd eventually like to go all clean foods. I ran out of cookies so that wont show up too much in my diet for a while till I give in and decide to buy some more. If its not in my house I usually don't eat it. I give into the most tempting convenient foods in my house. So D-day is grocery day for me. If I can resist the urge to buy it I wont eat it. I think if I set up a system where every wednesday and sunday I can do 1 fast food meal for both of those days I might stick with it and be more consistent with clean foods. This way I can see a light at the end of the tunnel and I know I'll live to see another fast food day :) I know not many people probably read my journal. This is more for me than it is for anyone else. I think in order to get the best results I need to focus on what I'm doing and not what everyone else is doing. Everything can potentially work for someone, you just have to try and figure out what it is. If you have so many ideas being thrown at you its really hard to filter out all that and stick with what you got going. I don't mind constructive criticism though. So if anyone would like to add or put their 2 cents in. I'm willing to take reasonable things in consideration.

I don't think you can change a thread title, but I see what you have up at the top of the original post. I like it.

I think I caught onto something in an earlier post when I said if I treat myself to fast food one meal on wednesday, and one meal on sunday. I'll be more apt to stick to a stricter diet seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I'll of course try to be health conscious and I wont go over board. I'll stick to either a meal number or something like fish fillet or something. Stick to medium size drinks and fries ect...
Really looking forward to staying on track for once and see some real changes.

Played some high concentrating serious pool for 3.5 hours had a big headache.
I think I burned quite a few calories playing pool, probably about 500 or so, so I think its fairly equivalent. Friday I assure you I'll be certain to do both weights and cardio on the same day.

Nice journal. I'd say the diet needs to be cleaned up, but if you're losing, whatever works.

Nice journal. I'd say the diet needs to be cleaned up, but if you're losing, whatever works.

I burn a lot of calories from my full time manual labor job.
I'm not eatting anything particular in excess.
