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?

    Cut ends Oct 7th

    Hey everyone. I decided to give a journal a try. I've been on a cut for almost a month now, and have 2 months left. Here are my stats:

    Height - 5' 11"
    Weight - 173
    Body fat ~16%

    I'd be happy to reach 165 lbs by October 7th, but anymore I could take off would be fine too. I started at about 177 lbs. I lift weights about 2 times a week, and play softball around 2 times a week as well. I eat 6 meals a day (3 regular and 3 snacks). These meals consist of some combination of the foods below:

    Breakfast
    4 Egg Whites
    Oatmeal
    Cottage Cheese
    Wheat Bread + Natural PB
    Kashi GOLEAN Crunch

    Lunch
    Wrap (tuna, chicken, deli meat, etc), and veggies or fruit
    Lentil Soup
    Leafy-green Salad with chicken with oil and vinegar.

    Dinner
    Stir fry - Chicken with mixed vegetables
    Chicken Tacos - whole wheat shell, lettuce tomato and salsa
    Steak, sweet potatoes, and string beans
    Chicken and Brown rice with salad
    Whole wheat pita with low sodium sauce, ff cheese (topped chicken or turkey pepperoni)
    Chicken or Beef Shish kabobs and yams

    Snacks
    Fruit or Veggie + Natural PB
    Jell-O Sugar free
    Jell-O Pudding Sugar free with protein powder
    Cottage Cheese
    Meal Replacement Shake
    Peanuts, Walnuts, Almonds, Sunflower Seeds

    Beverages
    Water
    Diet Soda
    Crystal Light
    Tea (mostly green)

    I'll try and keep you all posted daily!

    Are you doing any cardio? Why do you only lift twice a week?
    Don't hate the player. Hate the game.

    I'm doing two days of softball, and I plan on running to the gym every Saturday (a little over a mile). I literally hate being on a stationary bike or treadmill for more than 5 minutes. I figure 3 days a week of exercise is good enough.

    I lift twice a week just for maintenance. I do each muscle once every other week. I thought it would be enough to keep all my muscles active without losing too much strength.

    Breakfast: NatPB on slice of wheat bread

    Snack: Peanuts

    Lunch: Chicken on a whole wheat wrap. Carrots on the side

    Snack: Orange Jell-O

    Dinner: Deli slices of ham

    Snack: Alcohol

    Oddly enough I weighed myself this morning and I hit a new low (170)! I'm guessing the alcholol I drank last night drained out all the excess water. I'm not looking forward to weighing again now that I put all that water back in.
