Alright heading back to school tomorrow :cry: , but up-side is i get to use the gym :D which i have missed over the holidays. Well i am going back with a new Diet and new Routine which i am going to STICK to.
The routine may not be spot-on, but that can be changed in later stages of the year if its not going the right way. Just the basics on me:

Age: 17
Weight: 73 Kg (Im in Australia we use kilo's)
Height: 178cm
Body-Fat: N/A (will be fixed soon)

Well i was born with a high metabolism which has treated me VERY well, and generally have a good physique running in the family. From the age of 13 i did basics like sit-ups and push-ups at home until now, which i think has played a big part in keeping in shape and getting the definition i have now.
I've been going to the gym at school since February this year. My aims for now are to jsut reach the size i want, which i can't explain but to put on about 5-10 Kg's and keep or get back the definiton i ahve now.


Nutri-Grain w/ Milk
2x Eggs
4 Slices Bread w/ Peanut butter

Wow, that was a real challenge eating that much! Today was exhausting, doing a routine, gonig to 3 classes, walking to catch the bus, im ROOTED!
Had some guy in the gym come up and had a chat to me asking if i'd like to do power-lifting with him. I said no thanks im doing my own routine, but i'll help him wiht spotting whenever he likes.
And he said that he knows alot of people that have used creatine and it hasn't done anything for them, but theres only one real way to find out, do it myself :). Plus i bet they didn't even use it properly.
Well tomorrow i have a free lesson, and gym isn't on due to it being "GIRLS DAY" watta crock of sh*t. Homework day :(
