My Newbie Journal
I was holding out on starting one of these because I was a little embarassed....but hey, I've got nothing to lose and lots to gain.
Background on myself
Readers digest version. (well maybe not)
Beer+Books+TV+School=310 lb & high bp
Walking, then running + good diet + 1 year= lean 180 lb long distance runner. (about 8% BF at 5í10.5)
Life was good Öuntil I busted a ligament in my knee . I couldnít run for a year (could barely walk for 6 months!), and since then
(1998) each time Iíve tried to run again I get injured.
By January 2002 wt=240 lbs. Yikes!
So I got some help. Changed diet to several small meals a day...lots of protein.
Train with weights 4 times a week. Do Cardio 4 times a week.
203 lbs with about 7-12 lbs of increase in lmm (depends on which BF analysis test I trust...Really don't trust any) Iím a lot stronger than I was at the start.
Iím still pretty WEAK, but Iím really enjoying training with weights. I also still get my cardio fix. Great stuff.
Iím happy with the results Iím getting; happy and hooked . I really enjoy lifting weights and Iím glad I can get some kind of alternative fix to running.
Reading the journals and info in here has given me a lot of insight into my diet and gym routine. I understand it better. Itís also inspirational .
Reading about all the weight people are pushing around in here is amazing.
Belial youíre one scary dudeÖalmost as scary as Tryska. *snicker*
Everybodyís pretty constructive and helpful so I figured Iíd start posting my journal here and getting your input. I was a little hesitant about doing this, again, mainly because I find my lifts pathetic, but I figured that the sooner I start keeping an online journal the sooner I get input thatíll help me be not so pathetic. Iíll start off by posting my diet and gym routine, as well as my current lifts and diet.
My goal is for world domination, but until then I'll settle for a stronger me.
Oh, And yeah, I just stamped NEWBIE on my forehead so STFU or Iíll unleash a pack of South American Carnivorous Speckled Ass Monkeys on you! tuttut BTW, speckled ass monkeys eat ninjas for lunch.
