-minimum of 1 gallon of water intake per day
-1 cheat day per week

Work Out Plan:
-Wanna Be Big Routine #1
I've used this routine before, but this time I'm adding cardio on Day 2 & 4. I had some pretty good results from my last routine, but have been lazy as of late. I was able to get my weight down to 214 before Christmas, but I have not been watching my diet as well as of late. I'm sure I could come up with an excuse, but let's just call it laziness.

I'm starting the routine tomorrow morning with the Legs day. I will post the workout results after training tomorrow morning. As always, any feedback is welcome.

Sounds like you've got yourself a good knowledge base! Stay disciplined, don't be discouraged when you "gain back some water weight," after a cheat meal. protein post 7pm is fine. Just limit the carbs and fat. Cut back on the carbs a bit and get your fat intake to .5g per lbm.

That shouldn't be a problem. The numbers I posted were just the maximum daily amounts. In truth I probably will not eat quite that much on a daily basis.

Date: 6/28/06

The day started off terribly. I arrived at the gym at 6:10 a.m. and there was not a sole there. I noticed a few folks walking laps around the parking lot, so I joined in. The gym I go to is horrible. This is the 2nd time in less than a week that no one showed up to open the gym. I had to postpone my legs workout until Thursday. I went home a ran about 2 miles before bed.

6:00 a.m.: 1 scoop of whey, protein bar, 2 cups of coffee
9:00 a.m.: granola
11:30 a.m.: 1 chicken breast, 1 cup safron rice
3:00 p.m.: granola
6:30 p.m.: 2 eggs, 2 pieces of sausage, 1/2 cup grits (no butter)
