    Diego's Journal

    Intro

    Hi,

    I'm going to keep my journal here of life (off course mainly on training ).

    Started one ages ago but it kinda dissapeared as i wasn't commited enough but this time round i plan to keep it 100%.

    I'll be posting my diet, training regime and stats shortly.
    And when i get my damn digi cam working again i'll get some pics up (if they're not too embarassing).

    Diego

    Training Goal

    this is the goal of the body i want to have on the 1st october, 2004:



    estimated measurements:
    BF - 7
    Waist - 33
    Arms - 15.75
    Forearms - 12.5
    Quads - 24

    this guys 5'10" at 202 lbs, so i reckon for me at 6'1" i'll need to be at 210 lbs

    this means i need to bulk at 1.2 - 1.5 lbs a week.



    i'm setting a short term goal of being at 180+ lbs on monday, 5th april, 2004

    my workouts are going real well, losing focus slightly during sets at the mo', but that i feel is due to not planning properly.
    i hate going to the gym during the day, too many people doing nothing on the machines and getting in the way.
    going from now on to make sure im in the gym by 8.30 am

    hi, thanx, checked out your journal, you seem to have a similar build to me. what are your goals?

    you should update your journal at least with your current weight, i'd be interested to see how your progressing, i've a similar BF % of 12.5, not too worried about bringing it down yet, should have the rest of my stats and measurements up tomorrow

    back at college this week, for my last 8 weeks of lectures ever (well maybe), planning to do alot better this semester than i did in all the others, which shouldn't be too hard if i decide to do a bit more work.
    of course i'll put it off for a few days and party. prob hit some student night tomorro night and maybe pick up something to come home with, maybe. and then on saturday prob going to hit a cottage party in galway (bout 200 miles away on the opposite side of the country), the fun continues...........

    I'm going to start updating again.

    I've put on about 7 pounds since I started the journal.

    I'd also love to be 210 by october, but I don't think I'll get heavier than 180-190 by then.

    Anyway, I'm def. going to be popping in on your journal frequently.

    Hope all is well.

    going to galway tomorrow,not before training at 8.15am, and a lecture at 10am and then getting stuff in the city, it's gonna be a kickin' wkd, have to figure out how i'll maintain my diet though.

    back from weekend in galway, was good despite a few things, friday, went to the absolute worst club i've ever been at, about 10 people in the place excluding our group, music was terrible, beer was terrible, women were terrible, and e10 in! saturday had the party in the house, set up the decks and everything, my mate and his cousin spun, quite well, but for some reason it finished at 2am, way too early in my opinion, wanted to score this girl at it but couldn't get a rise out of her and she just became very boring, the stupid hypocritical bitch! other than all that it was worth travelling 5 hours for it. eating got pretty bad over the weekend but did manage to get in 2 large meals yesterday, which i hope won't effect me too bad and just been eating constant since i got home today to try and make up for it. *scales better be good to me tomorrow!

    Weight

    76.3kg (168.2 lbs) (+.7 lbs)

    i only managed to gain .7lbs this week, which is half what i'm aiming for. i was eating 1/5 more carbs daily than previous weeks and can't understand why my gain was so little. maybe it was the bad diet i had at the weekend, but would this effect it so much?

    rag week in college this week, irelandís pathetic attempt at some sort of spring break type party week. Tonight went to the rag ball held in the student centre in college, load of **** djs and acts playing but lots of drunk girls in skirts so kinda balanced out, some quite fit chicks I hadnít seen before. Scored some randomer who I canít remember the name of, maybe I was a bit mean to her, but im in my Ďlearningí stage, so thatíll justify it
