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?

    Diet

    Pretty damn ****ty. I still had two scoops of protein, may have two more. But I had some McDonald's french fries which are full of fat and three Otis Spunkmeyer cookies which have 8g fat each. I didn't each much though today, so I still might've been low cals except for the fries.

    Diet

    Still bad, but I am working on it. I still am making good gains even though it's not perfect. I have decided I am not gonna fully cut, but not bulk. Kind of what Icergrrl was talking about in her journal. A mini-cut. Then in October a huge ass bulk. I am gonna try to put on 30 pounds without going over 18% bf or so. I wanna get up to about 210 lbs. and then cut down to about 190-195 @ 10% bf by June. I will most likely be doing Keto and there is a possibility of clen, but I am not sure yet. I will see when the time comes.

    Diet

    Haha.....it's sad really how bad it's gotten. I haven't started eating donuts or anything, but...today I ate 1 pound of trail mix and that was pretty much all besides 3/4 of a sub. So let's see..food for the day:

    2 eggs
    1 pound trailmix
    8" of a ham+turkey+roast beef sub sandwich

    I think you need to add some pasta sauce to your diet...the kind that goes with spaghetti

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.

    Diet

    I am not sticking directly to my diet I have now. I am sort of starting my bulking cycle, but not going all out yet. So it's kind of a mini-bulk until tennis is over, then I'm doing full bulk.
