Well, I have been lifting for just about 2 years now, been keeping track of my weights for that time, but never my diet. So, starting today, I truly started my cut.

Meal 1:
3 scrambled eggs
2 slices of whole wheat bread
2 tbsp. natty peanut butter

Meal 2:
canned tuna
sour cream

Meal 3:
2 x chicken breast
lettuce+Misc Vegies

Meal 4:

Meal 5:
chicken breast
fajiti or rice (1cup) or pasta (1cup)
Misc Vegies

I also, take a multi-vitamin. And if/when i get hungry, i will snack on a handful of Almonds.

Monday: rest
Tuesday: Cardio
Wed: Legs
Thurs: light cardio (mostly to stretch the legs)
Friday: Cardio/Abs
Sat: Back/Bi
Sun: Chest/Shoulders/Tri's

My C/T/S day today went ok:
Flat DB press: 105-4,5 (my shoulder never feels quite right until i get one working set in)
Incline DB (40degress, 30 degress, 30 degress) 85-7,4,6
Dips + 80-7|2
Medicine ball pushup. (feet raised 25lbs on back w/hands on ball) - 8,9 (stabalizers fried already)
Sitted shoulder press: 70-3, 65-7
Front/Side raises: 40-10 (each) (i do these while holding on to a bar and leaning out, as i find this stops me freom cheating)
Tri-Pull down: 110-10,11
Seated tri extention: 80-8
Decline ab crunch +90-15,15
Oblique: (dont know what this is called but i am basically lying on my side, with my hip and ankles holding my legs in place, while allowing my torso to move freely) +55-11,10

Legend: "|" ~20sec pause between reps
This is by far my longest day. It is also the only day I lift with my brother, so we try to cram as much stuff in as we can.

Diet looks schweeet!! Goodluck with the cut.

Diet looks ace. Good luck with your goals.

Cold feet? They are almost frozen!

The diet was put together by my brother, I could have made it myself, but it is easier to follow a diet that is made without comprimze then it is to make your own. (i find that when i make my own i cheat when i am making in, and thus cheat every day you follow it)

I will post more later today.

6hrs sleep last night(I just started playing World Of Warcraft online, so I will keep track of my hours of sleep and if i think WOW is interfering it will have to go i guess)

Edit: Thanks for the replies! Keep looking back! Eventially i will put some before/progress pics up.

Well, yesterday i missed meal 2 and meal 4. And to top it off i only got 6 hrs of sleep again last night. This time however it was wedding related work that kept me up. :(

Cardio went good.
20min on the bike.... I will think of a way that i want to gauge this, probably average speed for whatever duration.

Well unfortanitly, the last 2 nights i have been working on wedding related stuff (invatations, photographer) and as such i have not gotten any workout/cardio in. And to top it off, only 6.5 hours of sleep each night.

My diet has been dead on each day, however tonight the company i work for is throwing a big party (free booze/food), I will do my best to control the cravings.
