This is the former briancurran01.

I thought a name change was in line to go with my new goals and I wanted a new journal with the appropriate name.

Here is going to be my split:

monday-cardio
tuesday: legs
wednesday: cardio
thursday: biceps, triceps, shoulders
friday cardio
saturday: cardio
sunday: chest and back

I am hoping to keep it like this for a while. May adjust it and move back to its own day, will see how it works out tomorrow.

Hopefully I will be able to keep the focus and avoid the crap from before that took me outta this for awhile.

BIGBRI

New pics will be up here in 2 weeks.

Hopefully I can make some good progress with the diet and weight by then.

Also, diet will be posted each weekday.

Please critique my diet when it is posted and offer any suggestions to get me back on track.

Brian, your goals look attainable to me, and I am very confident that you'll achieve them.

As for the fat free milk, I don't really trust the "fat free" label, because usually they add sugar or something to make it taste better. But I'm not experienced in having those "fat free" foods, so I'll trust your judgement on this.

please let me know if i should continue this.
I use this for motivation, and when noone replies it is of no use for me to update it.

JustinF
09-02-2004, 07:28 AM
Bro, you need to do this for you. The motivation needs to come from inside.

As long as you keep posting in here the comments will come. Sometimes people just don't have time to check it out everyday.

BIGBRI
09-02-2004, 09:01 AM
Justin: You are right the motivation for improvement has to come from me and it does.
Maybe I misspoke. What i meant when I made my statement was this, with everything that has happened to me this year, IE: the stroke, another stoke, marriage problems, family problems losing my job...etc. Reading the comments in here helps me to keep up my self image to see that people are interested in what I am doing.

Maybe other people dont care about the comments like i do, when I see the comments it makes me feel better with all the other crap going on, to know that people want to see me succeed.

Again maybe that is just me being weak,

BIGBRI

homer: thanks man. Ya I am working on being more consistent. working with a personal trainer friend from work going to design a program enough ****ing around time to do it

bruteman:thanks bud. yeah the sugars are doing amazingly well. My last hemoglobin test that measures the sugar over a 6 month period was 7.5% the time before that it was 6.9 anything below 7.5 and i am doing awesome. about a year ago i was sitting at 9 something so i am making improvements there.

hoping to get a workout in again tomorrow after talking to the trainer.

i am thinking of trying one of those NO boosters that improve your vascularity and blood flow.

It is strange even though i am not bulking i am getting bigger and more muscular I seem to be staying at the same weight. Maybe i am losing and then gaining back in muscle not sure.

I definitely want to keep getting bigger and more muscular.

OH also pics are coming in 2 weeks.

good or bad I will post them here. I think i have made progress in some areas and regressed in others.

My traps and shoulders are the 2 parts that are growing the most right now

JustinF
09-07-2004, 06:20 AM
Nice work in here Brian. I'd stay away from those for now. Just keep doing what you're doing. It sounds like you are recompositioning rather than cutting or bulking. Good stuff!!

I agree with Justin, no need for that NO stuff now. Just focus on losing the unneccessary fat. Nice pressing, seeing some strength gains in some exercises.

hey bro, congrats on the new goals, im sure you'll achieve them. Also, when you mentioned how your weight isnt changing but your looking bigger, i had the same thing happen to me when i first started. I didnt gain much, but looked much bigger. I assume it is loss of fat along with the gain of muscle that causes this. Anyway best of luck man!

Based on your diet, you're getting roughly :

900 calories
17g fat
28g carbs
157g protin

That's asinine. You are near 250lbs, you should be eating way more than that. You're effectively destroying your metabolism by doing this and it's going to end up being antiproductive at some point.

Again, I suggest a diet that looks similar to this :

3000 calories
200g fat
50g carbs
250g protein

Your workouts will be more meaningful and you'll be losing fat, not "weight." After a few weeks you can drop some of the fat and go to 2800 calories.

You need to keep in mind that when you're losing weight, you'll only look better if that majority of it is fat. Otherwise, you're going to look the same, just smaller. Please take heed to my advice, 900 calories is starvation for a man your size and I'd assume your hormones are in shambles as a result.

I'd have to agree with gal brian. I find if I drop cals too low fat loss slows and energy levels drop too much. Good luck!

250g protein, a minimal amount of carbs 50-100g (considering you are diabetic), and whatever fat you need to hit 2500. That would be from 120g-145g of fat.

went a tad overboard today with the protein the problem was we only had 2 chicken breast left....and one was 14 oz and the other was 6 oz...

so i went a little over on calories and about 120 over on protein. (at least it was on a good workout day so i can put the protein to use :))

will go food shopping tonight so i have somemore of the presized chicken breasts.

damn that chicken was good though

Hey bri, nice work in here. Any particular reason that if you miss a day you just skip it, rather than making it up next session and pushing the rest out? Just curious.

BIGBRI
09-30-2004, 05:46 AM
justin: thanks...i was planning on making it up yesterday but i could not make it to the club (nephew had soccer game) and i did not want to do a half ass session in the basement. i get pissed at myself when i miss sessions like that...but this one could not be avoided. i am doing shoulders and arms today.

some guy on bodybuilding.com is telling me that i need to stop relying on the scale..and not to set weight goals...man i am glad this board is where i do the majority of my posting...he is making no sense.

goals keep you motivated...he says i am relying too much on the scale and not enough on the mirror...that is BS...i see WAY more changes in the mirror then what show on the scale

a pound a week is still bloody good bri:D

what have you been averaging out a week as far as loss of weight goes?

BIGBRI
10-02-2004, 11:20 AM
well the first week i think i lost 7 or 8 pounds...2 week ago i lost 3...last week i lost 2.5 i think and this week it is 1..

BIGBRI
10-02-2004, 11:27 AM
ok..since i started posting the weight in fitday September 12th...i was 250 pounds...today i am 243...so that is 7 pounds lost fitday says it averages out to 2.33 pounds a week

mattburns
10-02-2004, 11:42 AM

BIGBRI

matt: thanks bud.


well i just learned AGAIN why i dont post on bodybuilding.com

since posting my pictures up there i have been told the following

1. bro get a tan you are as white as the cum i spray on your mamas face
2. i am so fat that i should just commit suicide.
3. and if i have made so much progress to be where i am now i must have really been a fat **** to begin with
4. and this is the worst...that the above comments about my mother and committing suicide were simply constructive criticism.


damn i am glad people are not like that on this board

Jabberwocky
10-02-2004, 12:06 PM

Bodybuilding.com has always been a breeding ground for assclowns. WBB is without a doubt THE definitive online bodybuilding community.

Stephen Riddington

bb.com rules are lax, so that why they can make comments like that. I'm glad wbb.com rules is made for encouragement and support, not to bring ppl down and ****.
