Well I know I need to do some ab work, but I'm being a lazy ass and putting that off. I've begun a diet also, which caused me to lose 8 lbs. since that Monday.

6 small meals throughout the day, no more soda or junk food ...
Meal #1: 3 egg whites, peice of fruit, and a slice of toast.
Meal #2: Shake, About 18g protein, 40g carbs.
Meal #3: Some meat/fish w/half cup veggies, healthy carb.
Meal #4: Shake, About 18g protein, 20g carbs.
Meal #5: Some meat/fish w/half cup veggies.
Meal #6: Shake, About 27g protein, no carbs.

On workout days, add a post-workout Shake, About 27g protein, and About 20g carbs.

1 day a week (non workout day) off diet.

What do you all think of my diet? I'd love constructive critisism.

Well I'm just starting out, and I feel great about myself. I'm really pushing myself to the limit and I feel I've accomplished something when I'm done which is ******* awesome.

Started @ 156 lbs, now @ 148 lbs. in 8 days!!
