    My AOL Screenname is JStecman77. Add me Chris so we can do this thing?

    So maybe three awards?

    1 for the #1 person out of all 8 people.

    1 for the #1 team out of all 4 groups.

    and then competing one on one, 4 winners, 1 in each group.

    OH! And we each need a team name too!

    Chris, any ideas for team name?

    looks like me and dadude have similar goals as well, even though he's got some height on me

    my SN is turtle2268

    we could also set up a chatroom on aim, its quite easy to do so.

    My workout/diet plan

    4 days of cardio before a meal (45-55 minutes of medium paced)-abs later on in the day 3 days a week

    3 lifting days + 15 Minute session of HIIT (except after legs, i'm usually ready to puke after legs)

    Back/Bis

    Chest/tris

    Shoulders/legs

    My BMR is 3000-3200 a day, so Ill be in shoot for 2000 calories a day and adjust from there depending on my progress

    Good morning Everyone !

    I'm having some technical difficulties with my home computer, so I may not get the pictures up in time.

    But I'll include the following measurements/deltas to kick off this round of weekly updates.

    Current weight:
    201 lbs. -2 lbs from last week. - 2 lbs from starting weight (203 lbs)

    Current B.F. %:
    22.98%. -2% from last week. -2% from starting B.F. % of 25.09%.

    Current Lean Mass:
    155 lbs. +3 lbs from last week. +3 from starting lean mass of 152 lbs.

    Current Fat Mass:
    46 lbs. -5 lbs from last week. -5 lbs from starting fat mass of 51 lbs.

    I've gone from a 41" abdomen to a 40" abdomen.
    Most of my measurements have shrunk by between .25" to 1". Although I've grown .25" in my hip and thigh measurements, though this may be a result of swolleness from Friday's leg workout, which is still causing me significant soreness.

    I've managed to exercise everyday this week. 5 days of ~700 cal cardio, and two days of lifting.

    I'm going to start lifting 3 days a week, while maintaining a 4-day split. I'm moving biceps from chest day to back day; and I'm cutting out ab work on shoulder day.

    I can't tell much of a difference in my daily photos... I'm hoping the difference will become more apparent come week 3.

    Cheers,
    ~alan

    (p.s. I'm skeptical about the changes in lean/fat mass. It appears that MyBodyComp.com adjusts my numbers by a certain amount to fit into their formula better. But it's the best tool I have for now, and I'm not taking the #'s as gospel.)

    I'm doing great as well. Kept everything going with exercise/weights and down to 191 now. Working on getting my diet perfected.

    I went to the store and bought some creatine and glutamine.

    How and when are you guys taking this? (and how much)

    After weights? Everyday?

    3 lbs for the week, Stecman? That's great!

    I take Creatine right before and right after my lifting sessions. My package of Cell-Tech creatine says a dose is two scoops. Supposedly that provides 75 grams of dextrose. So I'll take one scoop (half a dose) just before my workout, and the second scoop right after.

    I'll also take a scoop of protein powder just after a lifting session, too.

    I'll take a does of glutamine powder with a protein shake just before bed every night.

    I have recorded everything I've put in my belly in

    http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJournals.html?Owner=adamaz

    my workouts are in there too - except for a most recent 2 which I have been too lazy to log.

    I think 3 pounds of that are probably water, because I've cut my sodium consumption drastically by 1) not eating processed food and 2) not using much salt on my food.

    I've been on average eadint 1000-1200 calories a day less than I burn... but with a typical minumum of 2000 cals. According to fitday, I go through about 3300 a day. Some days more from evercise. I also do long cardio on weekend - either 3 hour day hikes over mountains and through the desert (I live in AZ,) or out the whole day hunting quail. (bushwhacking, hiking, no trails, etc)

    I don't think I'm going to go into "starvation mode" eating 2000+ calories a day, and eating something every 2-3 hours. If I start to plateau, I'll re-evaluate and try eating more, rather than less - eating another 250 cals a day spread over several meals, prob in the form of healthy fats. (a few walnuts at every meal or something like that)

    I need to lose another 50 pounds. I am 31 - age is creepin' up on me :) I don't want to be old, sick, and fat. I want to be lean, healthy, and active. I just feel like I need to develop good habits now before it's too late. I don't want to be a heart attack waiting to happen, and I've been slightly overweight my entire adult life... so I know that or a stroke is a risk!

    I'm doing the same thing with the meals. Here's my logbook:

    http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJournals.html?Owner=Stecman

    A couple great things happened today.

    My first compliment (outside of my wife) on losing weight! Yay!

    I ran an hour and it felt soooo good. Yay again!

    I also checked the scale this morning and I'm down to 190.

    Started doing my nightly 5k run, started at 30mins down to 26 last night.

    Been doing pretty good this week, eating right and lots of water.

    gonna shop for the supplements this weekend, any recommendations?

    Bravo Chris.

    I went with All The Whey protein. I think it's the isolate, banana flavor. It's good enough for consumption.

    I got the glutamine that John S. recommends.

    And if you're going to take creatine, I think a product called Hydroxycut or Hydrocut had the best flavor.

    I haven't hit 201 lbs since monday. I hope I can get back down to weight before this monday's weigh-in. Ugh!
