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?

    So it begins again...

    Well, I've posted on-and-off with my journal for the past couple of years (mostly off), and I'll try once again to make a new year a new beginning. I read in an incredible book that what you track grows, so I better get going. I haven't been posting, but I have been lifting, with setbacks coming through nose surgery and leaving the country for 2 months. I've still made great gains in the past couple of years.

    Lifts may be a little low right now as I figure out how I want to approach a new routine. Pics will be coming soon, along with goals. I might get set back a little bit because I'm going to China & Russia for 1 month, from January 23 to February 20, and will have little access to gym, if any. I will be taking there resistance bands, a jump rope, some running shoes, (hopefully) a chinup bar, and my body. Just graduated college and had to drop the big boys price on a real gym membership too...
