The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Stabber's Cut

    Gotta get rid of the winter crap. Been cutting and doing cardio for about a month. Need to better myself. School starts up again August 25th.

    Supplements:
    one a day, once a day

    Stats:
    23 years old 6'2 192lbs as of last friday. (was 203 a few months ago). Not sure on my bf %. But I have gained weight in the gut, love handles and face/chin area.
    Take One A day multi vit. and vitamin c daily. Giong to try to get to maybe 180. Then hit a bulk after that I also ordered an ECA since my fat isnt going anywhere despite losing 12 lbs in the past 6 weeks !

    Today. june Friday the 13th

    Day off from work (thank god). I'm an Environmental Health Aide for the state and it is getting old

    Didnt wake up until 11:55am. Damn fan fell out of my window at 4am last night and scared the b'jesus out of me.

    12:00pm
    Chinese sausage with an egg (gimme a break I'm half Filipino ), glass of chocolate milk(1%), multi-vit


    1:00pm
    one X RFA1 pill (first day)

    Overall a pretty good workout. I was working out in my home gym which is in my garage. And it's HOT! I was getting some nausea. May be the x RFA1 I started today. But I think it's probably the heat.

    good luck with the journal bro.


    maybe try cleaning up your diet a little bit. in the long run it might help you lose some of the extra fat.

    Woke up late again

    breakfeast
    11:40 am
    Half a pancake, scrambled eggs and a glass of 1% milk
    Didnt take any X-RFA1. Feeling funny on it and don't want to risk the problems. Ordered some yomiburn df stuff. Going to pick up some Ripped Fuel (e free) later today. I know it won't do much, but I figured it could help with appetite supression. The caffeine wil be good for pre-workout since I've cut out soda completely.
    Today is military presses and skull crushers. Weird mix, but I've been shuffling around my routine lately so it doesn't get boring. Will edit/update later


    workout
    4 sets of (133x1 111x3) standing military presses
    3 sets of skull crushers 45x5

    post workout
    A couple spoons of low fat cottage cheese: found an ant carcass in my cottage cheese. hmm. Checked the bottom of the container to see if he had any family members. He didnt so I ate him and the rest of the cottage cheese.

    Whey protein

    lunch
    Very late lunch. 4:30pm
    1 slice of bread with natty PB.
    1 glass of 1 % milk
    mmm natty PB. Tastes like mama bird chewed up peanuts and spit them into my mouth

    cardio
    30-35min of tennis

    dinner(directly after cardio)
    bowl of ground beef and potatoes
    water

    10:00pm
    bowl of ground beef and potatoes again
    1 low fat popsicle (80 calories) bah

    I really don't think your diet is that un-clean.

    I'm gonna tell your the most important thing I learned after cutting for 6 mos:

    Count Calories every day. Find out your maintenance cals and eat slightly below it.


    I suggest doing Tri's on chest day. You should post the weight you're pushing so you can track progress.

    Good luck w/ your goals.

    Thought you were Irish are you both???

    One suggestion, get some carbs with your breakfast (oats, slice of bread, etc).

    What kind of bread do you eat? I hope it's whole wheat and not white bread. If it's not, switch.


    Diet looks better today, just remember, slowly increase cals. shoot to be around 1650 cals by the end of the week, and 1800 by the end of the month. You may not lose any weight during this time until your metbolism is out of starvation mode, but don't get discouraged. Remember, cutting is a long slow process.

    thanks. Half irish. Dad is from the phillipines, mom is from ireland. they met in spain lol.

    Is it possible my metabolism can regulate itself at where I am right now? Wouldn't it eventually? I do plan to increase. I think I'm going to start by drinking another protein shake a day (one with milk). Yea, I eat white bread lol. Can't stand wheat. I need to get to bed. It's 2:12 in the morning here lol

    well the body can adapt to just about anything, but it's really not a good idea to stay where you're at for calories.

    Yea, I eat white bread lol. Can't stand wheat.
    White bread is a pretty lousy carb source. you're better off with crackers or something else.

    There are a LOT of different brands of Whole Wheat bread out there, I'm sure you can find a brand that you like.

    My mom is 5'4. My dad is 5'7. But, my mom's brother (lives in ireland) is 6'1. And one of my dad's brothers is 6'0. 6'0 for a filipino is like Yao Ming

    Weird

    by the way bro...take the trip to ireland. I swear to god I saw like 2 overweight girls there the entire time. Chicks are much more classier there. (not hating on any of my domestic bitches). MMMM dark haired irish girls. It's a good thing I'm not West Virginian. My 1st cousin (whom I met for the first time) was very attractive

    It's a beautiful place . I went up into the mountains, and saw where they filmed the battle scene in the movie Braveheart. rocks!!! to bad I was there with my bitch x girlfriend for 2 weeks. But luckily she got food poisoning and had to stay in the whole time Ah. lifes simple pleasures.
