    Youtube, Carl Cox, Laidback Luke and have a listen to their music. If that fails, Metallica, Pantera are always good work out options lol

    Thanks for the motivation. Glad to know someone else is suffering the boredom of the treadmill - helps me get through it at 6:30 a.m. There was ice everywhere this morning so I had the gym to myself and could crank some tunes. It helped a little. Good luck and keep up the good work!

    Hi Giggle. returned from a long weekend getaway which was awesome but the food was not 'diet' friendly. Little protein high glycemic carbs. candy, chocolate, mousse cake for snacks. And too much wine and champaign....

    I realized I am a different person then I once was. I used to eat that way all the time. Now I find it almost disgusting.

    So I have entered a detox phase and back to healthy living and exercise. May take a few days to work out of my systemI feel like poo

    Hi guys , just wondering : I watched a episode from elliot hulse's 'strengthcamp' on youtube , and he talked about a way to reset your metabolism . I cant remember how it goes but it was something like :

    Drink loads water and eat like just turkey breast/ tuna and brocoli for a few days , then have a clean carb fueled day .

    Just wondering if any sort of detox / metabolism boost thing like this works ?

    Consistently eating clean over period of time is one way!

    Gaining muscle another.

    Thermogenics

    Out of ideas...

    Every once and again I enjoy inflicting my own cardio pain. Legs and ab are sore. Very sore....and I like it. Giggle I secretly read another girl's log for lifting advice . She's into power lifting. and she knows what she is doing with weights.

    Life is getting in the way. So I was not able to complete my week on a high note with legs/arm/ab.

    Also my diet sux. Not eating enough throughout day, working out with no fuel and then binging the calories too late in day. Upset tummy, don't feel like eating until lunch. Basically my food cycle is off.

    Water is better. not perfecto.

    I am tired of putting energy into this cut and not getting results so something has to change. Starting TODAY.

    Mini meals (for some u would call a snack) through out the day every 2 or 2.5 hours. Protein with most every mini meal @ most 3/4 oz of lean protein source from chic/egg white/fish. Limit carb and fat together, basic cutting 101 technique. Most meals will not be re-heated since finding time and finding time to microwave anything is difficult. The only exception to above is breakfast. I rather like my egg whites piping hot and oatmeal cooked I am not so concerned with hitting a certain split or cal until I see negative results.

    I am probably going to eat the same food everyday just to simplify my otherwise $@#¥% life at the moment. Measure and weigh once for a day and repeat.

    For a training, going to hit the major muscle groups every week at least once and round off with as much cardio as I can squeeze in through the week. Focus is cutting so incorporate hitt style training. Since my gym is crowded I may have to improvise since ppl hog the equipment while resting/talking on phone/playing words with friends.

    The other option is to give up. I was grocery shopping and running errands. While standing in the long line at ULTA and taking in the view, I can't succumb to the dark side. It's not a pretty.

    Time for legs.
