    Update for yesterday.
    AM cardio was good.
    Diet stayed on track 100%
    I KILLED it with the shoulder workout in the evening. Never worked my shoulders that hard before.

    Oh and yeah my a$$ and the backs of my knees are still in huge pain from legs on Monday night.....so I guess I did that workout right to!

    GROWTH!!

    Tonight is cardio only.

    [QUOTE=First6;5496379]Let's rock this out! Time for big change!
    I probably want to keep thing the way they are for at least 2 weeks if that is cool with you (but your the boss) I have not been dedicated to the lifting and have been more focused on cardio to drop holiday fat gain, so I want to give the workout routine a fair run. Diet is readjusted for proper macros now and I should be gtg.


    yummy! Oh wait... I stole that from someone else's quote on someone else't thread!!!

    I am SO GLAD to hear that you are going to get back in stride. 2 reasons:
    1. I need my gang. lol
    2. the real reason - you guys are my freinds. I love that you are so giving but I get upset when I see you cutting yourselves short and missing out on your own goals.

    Specifically to GB - I hear ya about the comments at the gym and the cals. (You were bigger than me and you were eating less cals than me when you got those comments!!!)
    I KNEW that it bothered you more than you let on. It would me to. That's cool bro. You know what to do
    .
    Me too for the both of you!

    Sorry i'm late, PM hell.

    I'd opt for the beef over the chicken any day in that last meal. I personally wouldn't do any carbs, but you know my reasons for that already.

    Why no whey PWO? I'd do a shake and complex carbs here, making it your last carb meal, then follow it 45 mins - 1 hour later with some chicken and veggies, THEN still have the beef meal before bed. Make portions smaller if you have to in order to fit within macros.

    If what i'm saying makes no sense, then i'm missing something here. Let me know!

    Sorry no update. I was adruptly pulled out of town. My sister has an emergency and needs my help. So I am in Va until Sunday night.
    There will be no pics and I probably won't be on the board much if at all.
    see you all on Monday.

    OMFG... not cool. Is she ok, relatively speaking? I mean, is she seriously injured?

    I don't want to pry into your business, so feel free not to answer anything, or PM me if you want - but has this happened before? How long have they been married? How old are they? Will you be stomping this jerk off's face any time soon? Do you need help? I'm right in NJ ya know...

    I've been around abusive couples in the past and this shit rubs me the wrong way, that's why i'm reacting like this. GL man, we'll talk. Take care of your sister.

    I don't mind talking about it. But it's been a day and I really just need to sleep it off.
    Real quick though:
    She Is okay. Nothing that won't heal (except the emotional)
    They are early 40's and been married 13 years. Never happened before except real bad verbal abuse.
    I'd like to of course but I am afraid it is pretty much out of the question short of a blanket party. He is 6'4" built and career army. He knows more about fighting then you do about diets. We could both go at him and he probably wouldn't bother even putting down his beer.

    Gotta get some sleep. I'm beat.
    Thanks for asking bro.

    alright well I am back. So moving on....

    Diet was off on Sat but I managed to pull it back to 100% clean on Sunday.
    No workout on Sat but a lot of physical labor with moving stuff.
    Sunday was the same moving stuff but then I did do back and arms Sunday night. So the only workout I really missed this week was chest.

    Today:
    Diet is 100%
    Workout today is cardio only.

    Quick update:

    Yesterday was legs. Last week my legs hurt for 4 days after the workout. Yesterday I worked them heavier than the previous week but today they feel fine. I can tell I worked them but no pain. Interesting.

    Diet is on track.

    Today is shoulders. Looking forward to it.

    So since I missed the pics and weigh in on Sat the curiosity finally got the best of me this morning and I broke down and did a mid week weigh in. I can feel my body changing and really thought I was gaining fat again so I couldnt help it. I had to check.
    I am up 3lbs. (good improvement I think!)
    I am also confident now that my BF is not gaining. It is at min maintaining and possibly even still dropping. The omron is showing 11.4% (down from 12.1% 2 weeks ago)
    Anxious to see what the next month brings!

    Thanks for your support.
    Just to clarify (to keep things honest) The beer comment was just a figure of speech. He is not a drinker. I just meant to say that 2 guys coming at him would not be enough to get his full attention. I could have said soda or sandwich or whatever.

    the above is because of the four words below this
    Diet is on track.

    Today is shoulders. Looking forward to it.

    we are not really running a calorie deficit anymore so weight should go up. Keep up cardio and work hard on what I sent you then in two or three weeks I'll send you the new program. I need pics for the most accurate advice. Great job first. You are making great progress man. It's good that you don't let these life hardships derail you.

    Glad you're back First! I hope things go well with your situation, as well as they can.

    Great job bro. I'm still pulling my head out of my ass. I seem to have done best when you, me and TB were all constant. As Twist pointed out, our whole 'thing' got fvcked up with the holidays and this challenge.

    Hey man don't take it that way because I wasn't thinking of you at all when I wrote that. I was thinking about how I totally have been slacking on diet and if that shit happened to my sister (which I don't have), then I wouldn't be back at it like first is. But now that you mention it... Give me something good to say in you thread!

I was thinking about how I totally have been slacking on diet and if that shit happened to my sister (which I don't have), then I wouldn't be back at it like first is. But now that you mention it... Give me something good to say in you thread!
    Haha Twist, it's not your fault - it's my own guilty conscience getting the best of me! And you're right - I need to give you something positive to say... =\

    Agreed, First is the man for jumping right back on. I need to take a lesson from him in dealing with life's curveballs...

    Have not updated in a while. I feel like it is uselss without being able to post pics.
    Admin is working on finding a solution to the pics posting problem.
    I will resume this thread after it is sorted out.

    Still no answer on the fix for posting pics. Not sure what is up.

    In case anyone still cares... Lately I have been just running dif experiments with my body.
    Running dif diets just to see what it does to me. (some have been good and some bad!)
    Experimenting with dif lifting techs to. (slow lifting, focus on negatives etc...)

    Over all I look considerably better than my last pics on this thread. Just wish I could post pics. Maybe I will send some pics to Twist and have him post them for me. I am almost ready for summer with the shirt off. LOL Getting there anyway.

    Im still following your progress with interest buddy.
    So do tell about the changes in diet/exercise, what were the results of the changes
