    It takes a lot of self discipline for me to keep to a strict diet on the weekends. I have a very specific routine during the week because of work and that makes it easier to stay strict. Here are my macros for today including the shake i'll have before bed in 2 hours:

    Cals- 2103 Prot- 239g Fat- 97g Carbs- 63g

    here is my food journal: http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJournals.html?Owner=lumpy788

    I went a little higher on the carbs than what I do during the week but 3/4 of that was from the 2 servings of nuts I had in the afternoon and from the heaping pile of brocolli I had for dinner. I'm pretty proud of myself.

    it's not easy, it took me about 3 months, once I got to that point, it got easier. Grocery shopping is really easy, don't even need a list any more because during the week I pretty much eat the same meals with the exception of dinner.

    Do you usually do biceps before your back work? Does it work alright for you doing it this way?

    as far as cardio goes my legs have always been good for long bouts of cardio, about 5-6 years ago I used to be able to jog 10-15 miles at a time, although these days my feet can't take that much pounding so I spend more time on a bike, I just get lost in my music, I just use an mp3 player that holds about 20 hours worth of music

    I've been doing this lifting split for almost 2 months now, the biceps and back seem to be a decent mix, I guess it's a pull/push sort of split because I'm doing chest,triceps and shoulders on the same day too. I admit, I could probably deadlift more if I did those on their own day or started with that exercise because during my last set my grip does weaken a little. I took this split directly from the notes I found on DC training which has been good so far. It has been relatively lower volume than some of the other programs i've seen so maybe that's why this split works. The stretches in between help too.

    You're up early Teddy!

    I am like you on cardio, I could go for a couple of hours easily. Just don't have the time.

    well, I get up at 4:20am so I can go workout before I have to make the hour drive to work. Now that it's getting nice out i'm carrying an extra pair of shorts and T-shirt with me to work so I can go outside and walk the hills at lunch time.
