The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Sorry Ronan, I know we discussed just writing this down in my book but for several reasons, writing it in here will be more helpful.
    1/ I go on here every morning while drinking my green tea
    2/ this way, you can see exactly what I'm up to!

    Goals for 2 weeks:
    I will have laid a foundation of healthy, consistent eating which I will want to continue following
    I will take the necessary meds at the designated times thus my moods will be more stable and consistent
    I will have all my debts paid off
    I will be further along in reaching my goal of quitting smoking for good ( this is more or less accomplished already )
    I will use thermogenics as a means to performance enhancement, and not to combat my emotions
    I will approach my training with re-newed enthusiasm and vigour!
    I will do shoulders only for weight training
    I will consistently drink 6-8 L of water each day

    Sav, this thought just popped up...

    why is it that YOU have to be "Ronan's Biatch"?

    Why can't Ronan be (and write down) that he is
    "Savannah's Biatch"?

    There seems to be a double standard going on.

    And this was just a thought...and btw, I am rooting for you Ronan at the June 30 Championship!

    Sorry for posting on your journal but I had a question for you. I am trying to put together a training schedule for my girlfriend. She is just starting out but has trained some in the past. How often do you think she should work a body part a week and how many excercies for that body part? Any suggestions would be appreciated, feel free to reply in my journal. Sorry to hear about the cold/flu.
