  • Get Huge Or Get Lost

    Figured it's about time to start a training log. I track my workouts on nikerunning.com cause I like the calendar view and charting tools, but in order to get input from you guys/gals, I need to get started here as well.

    Current Training Goals
    Cardio
    Tues-Fri

    Weights
    Mon/Tues - Thurs/Fri

    To start off here are some stats about me:

    Measurements:
    Height: 5'6
    Weight: 170
    Stomach: 39in
    Chest: 36in
    Arm: 14in
    Wrist: 7in

    I've never lifted before, but I do have an extensive background in cross country and long distance which helps in terms of being able to do a lot of cardio.

    Over the past 6 years, I've packed on quite a beer gut, drinking every night and generally not taking care of myself at all.

    Finally I got sick of it and after a few months of half ass running and lifting, I've decided to go 110% on training and diet.

    My goals are to lose this spare tire and also to gain muscle. Not sure if I can do it all at the same time, but hopefully people who have BTDT can lend their advice.

    Thanks for the input MD crew!

    And yes I'm crazy so heres some pics of my current body...not pretty but it motivates me and hopefully can give you guys/gals some more detail on me.

    Thanks again...

    Meals:

    8am: 2 Egg 1 cup Oatmeal
    10:30am: 4oz Chicken 1 cup CousCous
    2:00pm: 4oz Chicken 1 cup Brown Rice
    6pm: 1 lb meatloaf and 2 eggs
    8pm: 1 cup cottage cheese

    ***Meal advice is appreciated...not sure how to eat since my goals are to #1 lose weight and #2 build muscle...
    Should I eat majority of carbs b/w morning to mid afternoon and then after that, lean proteins and fats?
    Should I go low calorie in order to lose weight or will the cardio take care of that over time?***

          After looking at more diet options, I'm going to try out the Palumbo version...

          I like the simplicity and the low carb factor which everyone says will help lose weight.

          Since that is my primary goal and bulk 2nd, I think this is a good option for me...

          Input appreciated

                        I agree it is like a drug...just the natural high is great and then seeing results is really motivating...

                          Diet input is greatly appreciated. I basically took the Palumbo diet and tried to cut portions in regards to my current weight which is 170 lbs.

                          The only deviation on the diet is the oatmeal in the morning...
