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?

    Here I go.....

    Ok, I've finally decided to start a journal.


    We'll back up. I started lifting 2 years ago regularly, thne stopped. Started again last year on and off. Now, I'm ready to start again seriously and full time.

    I usually run for 60 minutes a day....

    Ok so yesterday, I woke up late; didn't get to run in the morning. Went to class, then went to HS, went to do a physics project, went to do government activity for school, and then came home. Finished my physics, math, and other school things. So then by the time I was finished I hadn't run because it was too late.

    Breakfast: Toasted Oat Cereal

    Lunch: Protein Bar.

    Dinner: Chicken, cereal, and ahhhhh some ice cream. It wasn't as bad as ice cream can be I spose. But it definitely didn't help.

    ok so today 9/5 the plan was to wake up at 5 and run for an hour before I left to school. Well I woke up at 4:30 decided I'd go to sleep for 15 more minutes, and that turned into an hour. So again, I didn't run this morning. I was going to donate blood today, but now I've moved that til Tuesday so that I can workout my legs, and then run after school.

    So far today....

    Breakfast: Toasted oat cereal, and like 1/4 of a peach.

    Lunch: Protein Bar, and some chex mix.

    So for the rest of the day, I'm going to workout after class. Go get my hair cut, and then come home and run for an hour.

    We'll see how it goes....

    Ok, I just got done with legs:

    SLDL: 3 sets/6 65 lbs

    Leg Press: 3/6 150lbs

    Squats: 3/6 95lbs

    Lunges: 3/6 40 lbs

    The Lunges were killer, I planned on doing 12 reps, but I could barely do 6. In fact I fell on my last rep of my third set. LOL that was hilarious, and not to mention a little embarrassing.

    Just had a protein bar, and I'm on my way home. Going to get my hair trimmed, and then off for running.

    I can't walk right, not sure how I'm gonna run.

    Glad you started a journal Keep it up!

    And eat more!

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    Alright, just got back from getting my hair "trimmed" riiiiiight. The top layers are too short It's ok, I'll get used to it until it grows back. I'm going to change my hair color to strawberry blonde the end of this month, then if I don't like it I'll change it back to the blonde.

    Ok, I'm going to go put some chicken on the grill, and try to run.....we'll see if my legs give out or not.

    That plan fell through. I was on the thready for about 3 minutes, and my legs were giving way, either that or I'm just being lazy. I need to stop being a lazy fat ass, ahhh. So that was shot.... It's now been two days since I've ran...I'm afraid of what tomorrow morning is going to be like. The rate I'm going I wont run again until next year. Tomorrow I will force myself, whether legs like it or not, they're running.

    Just finished:

    Push-Ups: 3sets/15 reps

    Crunches: 3/20

    Leg Lifts: 3/15

    Now, I'm going to eat dinner

    Damn. You don't need to run everday for 60 min.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    In other words....that is a nice way of saying EAT GIRL!

    You couldn't have had 1000 calories today if those 3 meals are all you ate. Folks worry about ya....so take that as a compliment.

    Ok woke up this morning:

    1 capsule Xenadrine
    35 minutes of cardio. Planned on doing 1 hour, and then my ears got plugged, so I was trying to pop them because it was driving me nuts. I couldn't pop them, and they're still plugged. So after that, I lost all concentration, plus I felt like puking.

    Breakfast: 4 oz chocolate milk
    1 cup toasted oat cereal

    Lunch: 3 egg whites
    1 whole egg
    1 can of tuna and i mixed in a little mustard.

    Today is push day, so I'll post how the workout goes a bit later.

    Alright, just got done. Took one xenadrine before working out.

    Bench: 3x6x50

    Seated DB shoulder press: 3x6x20

    Flyes: 3x6x20

    Dips: 1x6 and 2x4

    Skull Crushers: 3x6x20

    I did the dips early in the routine which was a huge mistake. It took most of my strength making the rest of the exercises much harder. So, next week I'll do dips last. I didn't used to be able to do any dips, so doing even one was awesome. I was happy about that!

    So now I'm going home, and maybe I might throw in some cardio since I didn't get the full hour this morning, or maybe I wont. Just have to see how I feel.

    My dad kills em, not I.

    Did my hour of cardio, and had the protein.

    Also:

    Push-Ups: 1x15
    1x7 Kinda tough after working out today.

    Crunches: 2x20

    Side Crunches: 2x20

    Leg Lifts: 2x15


    I totaled my calories for today, and they were really a lot lower than I know they should be. I'll be adding more in tomorrow. But as far as total percentages go it was 21% fat, 32% carbs, and 47% protein which I thought was an improvement.


    I took a couple of full body pics after I was done with cardio, so I'll get those developed soon and post them if they turned out. I'm going to compare them with how I look in 4 months.


    I didn't notice a huge difference form taking the xenadrine today, no side effects or anything. Cardio did seem a bit easier, had a little more energy I think. I only took half dose, and I think I'll stick to that for a week just to make sure my body is used to it before I jump into anything else.

    nice work tigress ...the calorie ratios look good, and just try to progress as your body dictates, no overtraining due to wanting to lift cars and stuff!
