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?

    Yeah, I live in western New York. I've always trained alone, so I just train however I choose to.

    Daaaaaaaaaamn!!! You're one badass chick, killer workouts!!! And nice diet, sans the pizza. Incredible strength! I'll be lurking around watching your split and diet seeing as your progress is just a bit ahead of mine and I could learn from you. Keep on truckin', and best of luck with the recovery!

    It's easy. Most foods you buy at the grocery store have labels on them and you just read off those. For most other things, you can look online for what it is. There is many databases that have tons of different kinds of foods and it tells you the same thing as the labels.

    I went to the store today and got police belt, handcuffs, flashlight, key rings, and holders for my job today. I was told to get the stuff 3 weeks ago when I started and I figured they'd yell at me soon if I didn't. Cost about 3 days pay (and I don't get reimbursed), but I think I'll be at this job for a few years at least, so it's not too bad.

    ~10miles cardio at work

    Diet

    -Meal 1: protein shake w/half cup oats
    -Meal 2: can tuna and yogurt
    -Meal 3: 8oz. beef w/prego sauce and 2serving sweet potatoes
    -Meal 4: 5 chicken breast tenders, 1.5servings peas, and 1cup milk

    -Meal 6: Mass XXX shake made w/2cups milk
    -Meal 7: Mass XXX shake made w/2cups milk
    -Meal 8: 8 chicken breast tenders and 1 serving sweet potatoes

    Calories: 6408
    Protein: 397
    Carbs: 723.5
    Fat: 221
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    -Meal 1: Mass XXX shake made w/2cups milk
    -Meal 2: 6oz. chicken w/gravy and 2servings sweet potatoes
    -Meal 3: protein bar
    -Meal 4: can tuna and yogurt
    -Meal 5: Mass XXX shake made w/2cups milk
    Later:
    -Meal 6: 8oz. beef w/prego sauce and 2servings peas
    -Meal 7: 6oz. chicken w/gravy, 1.5servings peas, and yogurt
    -Meal 8: 4cups milk
    Edit: Ended up going over a friend's house and eating this:

    Calories: 5936
    Protein: 449
    Carbs: 713.5
    Fat: 148

    Split it up by 1:30am between days. Definitely not usual, as I was up till 8:30am, and then slept for 5 hours. Then I was up for a few hours and took a nap for another couple hours. Now, as long as I can sleep by 2am tonight, I should be alright. May eat another meal if I'm up that late, but not sure about that yet. Most of the walking I had to do at work was on Saturday, as I didn't have to do too much on the overnight.

    Well, back to training tomorrow. Really looking forward to that.
