Yeah... If there's no potential, it's best to be honest now. A LOT easier than doing it once he has gotten his hopes way up.

Maybe tell him for now lets just be friends cause that nerdiness is something I would have to adjust to and maybe see if things grow or if they are a stalemate

That's usually the best idea anyway. Any good relationship is grounded on a solid friendship. It's just all if he's up to it or not. :-)

An, hey, sci-fi can be cool..... right?
Avatar... Jurassic Park...Back to the Future...Clockwork Orange...ET...Matrix... Planet of the Apes...

No he is more Star Trek, Babylon 5, Star Wars, Charmed.... These are what he listed to me lol. I like the fact he is into anime cause that is my nerdy side. But he also plays D&D and Everquest. I love action movies, thrillers, horror and comedy movies. Hell I even love a good old movie back when actors knew how to really act. I love sports and he doesn't

Avatar was ok, Jurassic Park was cool, Back to the Future bored me, never seen Clockwork Orange or Planet of the Apes, and detest all Matrix movies.

Now see I admit to playing World of Warcraft to help me unwind and destress. I used to be addicted to the game but now my health is way more important. See I have a nerdy side but lord I am not a total nerd. He is literally Big Bang Theory guys rolled into 1 person!!!!! Hell I might even thrown in the nerds from Revenge of the Nerds too!

Ok work honestly blew so much that I was excited to actually be at the gym for the first time in almost a month!!!! Honestly cleaning mini blinds the blind at a time SUCKS!!!!!! However on the cute note we have 3 baby birds in the gourd outside the bedroom. We are soooo excited about the addition to the family lol.

Breakfast: 2 tbsp dark chocolate dreams, 1 banana, 1/2c dry oats cooked in water, 4 oz coconut milk
Snack: 1 orange, 2 servings protein powder
Lunch: 1/3 block sprouted tofu, 8 oz broccoli, 1/4 onion chopped, 1 tbsp rice vinegar, 1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce, 1 tsp coconut aminos, 1/4c dry rice cooked in water
Snack: 1 small sweet potato, 1/3 block sprouted tofu, 8 oz broccoli, 1/4 onion chopped, 1 tbsp rice vinegar, 1 tsp coconut aminos, 1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce
Post workout: 5 glutamine tablets, 1 1/2c frozen tropical fruit and 2 servings protein powder blended into a smoothie with water

AM: yoga 50 min, 20 min walk around track to warm up for yoga
PM 40 min step mill lvl 5 fat burner program

Biceps/triceps
Superset

Felt kinda rushed cause someone wanted to use the pulleys I was on for cable crossovers. I literally busted out 8 sets in no time and my biceps and triceps were not happy campers.... BUT I could see some definition that I haven't seen before I might have to get Stacey to come to the gym to take pics of me working out my arms and legs so that I can see what they look like flexed instead of neutral. Tomorrow is the last day of this program and I have decided I am going to take Sunday off to rest and will hit a basic routine up until I talk with the trainer Wednesday. Interested to see what kind of macros he wants me on..... Going to tell him you figure out the macros and I will figure out the food that matches I hope

I am officially done with the fat loss program will post updated pics and measurements tomorrow which means I can't eat or drink till someone wakes up to do that to avoid bloat or food baby look :). I have decided I will keep the step mill in as my go to cardio but will limit it to 30 min a day no more no less. Need to start working on my tan so that I can see my muscle definition better. I thought I would enclose a new pic of them from the back.

I am really glad to be done with the high reps and ready to start with heavy weight and low reps!!! Yeah I am anxious to see what my measurements are too! Just hate the idea of not eating all morning waiting for someone to take my pics.

OMG MY SHORTS I WAS GOING TO TAKE PICS IN ARE MISSING!!!!!! I have no idea what I am going to do now!!! I don't want to pose in panties..... :(
