The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    So I starter my diet yesterday! I clocked in at 226 and i'm guessing 20% or so, pretty standard for me. I'm still using your journal for updates because I really don't feel like starting my own. Clean food, all sorts of supps and ****, it's going to be fun!

    I love snatch.

    Anyhow, yeah we did. I let her set the limit and she'd said $250-300. So, to be safe I went to the upper end at hit $300. Then, based on a few off comments I figured out that she blew the limit. She'd said what she got me I'd really, really like (I'd been eyeing up this watch forever), so I was pretty sure of what it was. So, I went to Sharkeez and asked him for advice, since he thinks like a bitch. The Tiffany's necklace was it! Put me in the right range and she loved it.

    It's good to see you back into the groove of things, especially back in training after the crap you went through.
    Nice. I don't even see you post in the mod section, so I just assumed you'd disappeared. Do you still use AIM? I used to see you on there from time to time, but I've not in ages. PM me if so.

    Thanks man. It's been a rough...5 years or so, but this past year the good finally outweighed the bad. I'm looking forward to 2007 being better yet.

    Solid advice. Happily, our options are much better at this level, so good news all around.

    December 28, 2006 - Walking Corpse (Day -4 of 45)
    I have a feeling today is going to be the hardest day I've had in...well, at least a few weeks. Since the holiday had me awake every night until 3:00am or so, I was absolutely unable to fall asleep last night. I took some ETS, which generally helps, but it did nothing to touch my insomnia. I ended up doing the "time travel" sleep, where everytime I roll over I jumped forward in time an hour, but don't feel like I fell asleep at all. So I tread my way into the land of significant caloric deficit, without any real sleep, and approaching cardio and meetings. So, this won't be the most entertaining update, **** off.

    So, I have a reason to get reasonably lean in 45 days. I assume my efforts up to NYE will be a wash, so today is day -4 of my diet, although I am going to follow it as best I can until then.

    Diet and Supplementation
    Today's diet looks like :

    nitrean, 1 tsp psyllium
    nitrean, spinach and a few baby carrots, 2 foc, 1 sesamin
    nitrean, 1 tsp psyllium
    tuna, spinach, 2 foc, 1 sesamin
    nitrean, 1 tsp psyllium
    nitrean, 1 tsp psyllium
    6oz grilled chicken tenderloins, mixed greens salad + 1 tbsp south beach diet ranch, 2 foc, 1 sesamin
    nitrean, 1 tsp psyllium
    cottage cheese + cinammon + splenda, 2 foc, 1 sesamin

    ~1200 kcals, 18g fat, 42g carbs [20+ fiber], 251g protein

    Animal Pak
    25mg ephedrine + 200mg caffeine (3x)
    500mg calcium carbonate (AM) / 1g calcium carbonate (PM)
    200mg caffeine + 2.5g l-tyrosine + 3g taurine (pre-workout)
    800iu Vitamin E
    6g high-potency fish oil
    SesaGlow (3x)
    ETS

    When I go for my Sam's Club membership tonight, I'm totally buying some nicotine gum to assist with hunger. If anyone's tried it, is 1mg enough to start? I was thinking of getting the 4mg and breaking it into four pieces.

    Workout
    Some long, moderate cardio for 45 minutes.

    I did my best to intently focus on random things and try to lose myself in thought. No such luck on this day. It didn't take but a few minutes for my calves and regional tendons to let me know that they weren't thrilled with the idea of cardio. Luckily, there was a girl on the stairmaster directly across from me (with full Bs) who was doing a very high intensity workout (think: naked jumprope). Her face was maybe a 5/10, but it was resting upon a 8/10 body. At about 27 minutes in, she decided to use her shirt to wipe the sweat from her brow, which I appreciated. Coincidentally, that coincided perfectly with a second wind. She left and a much better looking brunette arrived (Cs yes!) and started stretching by treadmill to the left of me. She opted for a looser fit to her sports bra (maybe it was a bathing suit top?), which reminded me fondly of Baywatch. Again, I caught another wind and was pushing along at a moderate clip (3.8) on the incline (8).

    At 45 minutes, I began a 2 minute cool-down. The treadmill said I burned ~400 calories, but I'm not sure how accurate that really is.

    So, what have I learned? Looking at boobies makes cardio easier. My legs are tingly.
