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?

    Learn to take a joke both of you. If I'm serious about what i'm saying I'm obviously not going to call you a "dickhead".

    Diet

    Going good, except subtract 40g protein from my daily intake. I get my protein stuff tomorrow..f-ing finally. I ran out and I figured I'd get the protein last Monday, but pf.com took 4 days to give UPS the shipping info. So no post-training protein or protein for my mrp. So I had one apple to supress my appetite...Other then that, perfect.

    No clue..but protein factory took too damn long to send the order to UPS. I ordered it last Wednesday, UPS sent me a confirmation email on Monday....Protein Factory said if I ordered over $100 worth of supplements shipping would be 3 days. Obviously they didn't add in the fact it would take them 100 days to actually send out the order to UPS...I doubt I'd get any special compensation because pf.com is run by college students(I believe) and doesn't seem very business-like, if you get what I mean...In their confirmation email it said:

    thank you very much for ordering,
    alex

    and his email wasn't even from proteinfactory.com, it was sawboy02@aol.com or something...

    Cause the transfer from kg to lbs. makes it like that. I usually work out with strictly lbs., but today I was at a different gym that uses kg.

    Ran for 20 minutes in the morning and for 30 in the afternoon.

    F- my diet...I think I'm good enough, lost 4% bodyfat and I am gonna start bulking. To hell with losing water weight I learned a lot though Thanks for the help guys, but my protein powder tastes like sh*t and I can't stand it for making up 1/3 of my total calories for the day. Oh well, some may shake their head at me cause I gave up fairly easy for this water retention shizat, but oh well. Getting an average of 6 hours of sleep per night and having 7 hours of school and working out at 5:30 am does not help either when I'm on about 60g carbs per day. Time to bulk and gain some real muscle.

    Training

    Ran 10 minutes and then played bball..Hella tiring


    Diet

    Pfftt...ate a taco salad again, ate some more donuts...Smack me! Started the taraxatrim and took some niacin tonight..we'll see what happens. I'm gonna take the taraxatrim for about 3-4 days, see how it goes. Also going to take niacin tomorrow morning before my workout to see if it helps with vascularity, like Yates said, and see if I get flushed or not. Also deciding whether or not to go back to my 2000 calorie diet. I seemed to keep around the same weight, as my scale says I'm back to 185 or so, but I have no clue, scales are stupid. But I know I'm down to 12% bodyfat, I can tell a major difference. On that diet, I seemed to lose a considerable amount of bodyfat, when I stuck to it and gained a lot of strength, so I don't know....

    Water - 4.5 liters so far...water intake going good. I can easily drink at least 3 liters per day at school. Peed 8 times today

    Gonna make some short term goals here..

    January 1st -
    Flat BB Bench - 235 x 3
    Squat - 340 x 3
    Deadlift - 360 x 3


    Holy crap...I am burning up from the niacin!!!!! Never taking that again

    Diet=****, thanks...no training or running today..alarm didn't go off, so woke up 40 minutes late. I need a new diet or something, because I am not eating right and my strength is showing that....Might go back on my 2000 calorie diet, again. I made some good strength and muscle gains from it.
