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?

    Long Road...to 15% and 225

    This is the former briancurran01.

    I thought a name change was in line to go with my new goals and I wanted a new journal with the appropriate name.

    Good luck on your new goals and focus.

    Here is going to be my split:

    monday-cardio
    tuesday: legs
    wednesday: cardio
    thursday: biceps, triceps, shoulders
    friday cardio
    saturday: cardio
    sunday: chest and back

    I am hoping to keep it like this for a while. May adjust it and move back to its own day, will see how it works out tomorrow.

    Hopefully I will be able to keep the focus and avoid the crap from before that took me outta this for awhile.

    New pics will be up here in 2 weeks.

    Hopefully I can make some good progress with the diet and weight by then.

    Also, diet will be posted each weekday.

    Please critique my diet when it is posted and offer any suggestions to get me back on track.

    Brian, your goals look attainable to me, and I am very confident that you'll achieve them.

    As for the fat free milk, I don't really trust the "fat free" label, because usually they add sugar or something to make it taste better. But I'm not experienced in having those "fat free" foods, so I'll trust your judgement on this.

    please let me know if i should continue this.
    I use this for motivation, and when noone replies it is of no use for me to update it.

    Bro, you need to do this for you. The motivation needs to come from inside.

    As long as you keep posting in here the comments will come. Sometimes people just don't have time to check it out everyday.

    Justin: You are right the motivation for improvement has to come from me and it does.
    Maybe I misspoke. What i meant when I made my statement was this, with everything that has happened to me this year, IE: the stroke, another stoke, marriage problems, family problems losing my job...etc. Reading the comments in here helps me to keep up my self image to see that people are interested in what I am doing.

    Maybe other people dont care about the comments like i do, when I see the comments it makes me feel better with all the other crap going on, to know that people want to see me succeed.

    Again maybe that is just me being weak,

    I agree with Justin, sometimes it's ok to have a bad day, try not to have it consistently.

    Benching looking real good.

    homer: thanks man. Ya I am working on being more consistent. working with a personal trainer friend from work going to design a program enough ****ing around time to do it

    bruteman:thanks bud. yeah the sugars are doing amazingly well. My last hemoglobin test that measures the sugar over a 6 month period was 7.5% the time before that it was 6.9 anything below 7.5 and i am doing awesome. about a year ago i was sitting at 9 something so i am making improvements there.

    hoping to get a workout in again tomorrow after talking to the trainer.
