leg raises
decline crunch
rope crunch
quads
walking lunges 4x15 on a 15% incline treadmill
wall squat 4x 1min each

I almost didn't make it through this workout today. Every moment I had to say: this rep/step is one rep/step closer to the physique of my dreams/a title. This program is really tough. I am telling myself that I only have to do it for one week.
I need alot of positive self talk right now. No negativism allowed. Total focus for 33 days.

you're inspiring me to go to the gym early before work :)

i think it is advantageous to train early, then have those meals spread over the day, leaving the evening and nighttime to rest and not burden yourself by having food to digest in the evening/nighttime. i need to time my meals better!

having the powder at 6am should replenish your muscles and restore a positive nitrogen balance, and you're eating something every 2-3 hours during the day with the powder at 3pm as well so that's good.

should work well - the broccoli and sweet potatoes, and the lentils are all slow-burning energy so that's good too.

i would be craving avocado because it's simply my number one favourite food - i've been eating two avocados a day for ages. i went without for a few days and didn't feel as good. my favourite combo is avocados with tomatoes.

having said that i'm trying to get a lot more bananas into my diet now. and fresh dates - going for the 80/10/10 approach.

i know we've mentioned 80/10/10 - i guess with your powder you're getting in the amino acids and essential fatty acids that you need so that should cover it.

keep us posted :)

Thanks Gorilla. Good to hear I can inspire someone. Well here it is for Day 5
4am 2c coffee 5am 45 min. stairmill 6am 2scoops prot powder then weight training shoulders/abs 7:30 1/2 grapefruit 3T cream of wheat 9:30 organic apple 12:00 1/2c lentils 6oz. sweet potato 2:30 2scoops powder 4:30 45min. on treadmill run/high incline walk 5:30 1c lentils, 1c broccoli 6 oz. sweet potato

weight training was:
shoulders
military press 4x25
side raises 7x15
bent over seated delt raises 4x15
abs
rope crunch 4x25
decline crunch 4x25
leg raises 4x15

Struggled with staying on my diet today, I had an extra cup of coffee to make it through. Felt depleted and tired mid morning. I haven't been sleeping that well since I started this. No time for slip ups. I am trying to avoid the news or any negative influences, if I can, to keep stress low. This helps me keep my diet and stay focused on my training. I turned back to reading novels to relax, works better than TV. 30 days to go.

celestial: Thanks, I have to stay focused. I started prep a little late and this is my first big show of the season. Want to drop 16 lbs. in 5 weeks.
Gorilla: thanks for the support, I need it.
Here it is for day 6 on this program.
5am 45 mins. run/high incline walk 6am 2sc prot powder abs only 7am 1/2 grapefruit 3T cream of wheat 9:30 apple 11AM 1hr power yoga 12:00 1/2c lentils 6oz. sweet potato 2:30 2scoops prot. powder 5:30 1c lentils, 1c broccoli, 6oz. sweet potato

abs training
4x25 decline crunch
4x25 rope crunch
4x25 machine crunch

Sat was only supposed to be cardio and abs but I through in a yoga class. Diet is really hard on weekends so I needed more to do. Today is a total day off. That concerns me since boredom is a diet disaster for me. But I need to do a full day off so I can be physically ok to push through training for the week. I scheduled a massage for today. My back to killing me so that should help.

djshrew: thanks!
Here it is for day 8. After one week, 7 days, I have dropped 7 lbs. Crazy to me that I did that so quick. Took yesterday off. The hardest day I have had so far.
Today was 4am 2c coffee 5am 45 mins on stairmill, 6am 2scoops prot powder bis and back training 7:30 3T cream of wheat 1/2 grapefruit 9:30 1 large apple 12 6oz sweet potato 1/2c lentils 3:00 2 scoops prot powder 4:15 45 mins treadmill high incline walk/run 5:30 1c broccoli, 1c lentils and 6oz sweet potato

training was

back
lat pull down 4x15
straigh arm lat pull downs 4x15
hyperextensions 4x15
low row 4x15
bis
concentration curl 4x15
preacher culrs 4x15
e-z bar curls 4x15
standing alt curls 4x15

Felt pretty strong today. May be the day off yesterday but crazy sore from my deep tissue massage. My wrist is really hurting too. Back to wearing the brace during the day. I think that yoga was actually a bad idea on Sat. Got to stick with the plan. No space for extras. 27 days to go.
