    Determined

    Back from a 2 week mess-actually about a 1 month slack and am getting on track as of today! Doing TP's carb cycling, again, but am cutting out my cheats.... Somebody please remember that! I NEED to lose some fat or I wont be wearing any shorts or skirts for summer! I plan continue with my weights heavy, and am gonna try the following split.

    Weight training 5X a week
    Chest
    Back
    Bis & Tris
    Legs
    Shoulders


    Cardio will be quite a bit to start, just for the first few weeks(cause i got a little fat!), then about 30 mins 3-4 times a week. Took measurements this am, and weighed in and even took 4 before pics. Wow, what a shocker! Will post that all eventually! Good luck to me!

    Too much cardio sacrafices muscle. Its not worth it Jill. You know this. Additional cardio is NOT going to make you burn extra fat.

    I agree with Jodi, you dont need excess cardio hun! diet is 90% of the game, let cardio be your aid when you hit plateaus.
    Best of luck

    Summer squash is fine. Spaghetti squash and butternut squash should be saved for carb days.

    Thanks Jodi! I found a recipe for summer squash: Grate the squash, then mix in an egg white as a binder. Make into patties. Fry in a pam sprayed pan. Hashbrowns!

    Jill, the girl in the pink is going to this camp in Calgary. The missus is starting to feel a little outgunned. I told her it's the perfect opportunity to get to know these girls and pick their brains.

    I guess that lady is the cheerleading coach at GM. Funny how my daughter was discussing cheerleading and how she'll get to meet the coach of the GM squad tomorrow. She'll be excited to hear the news tonight.

    Didnt really like it AJ Atleast not at 5:30 am! I ate the fiber 1, then downed the water and protein! Where can I find low carb milk / bread? Needing some advice. Havent done legs in almost 3 weeks. Did them this am. Lost some strength, but I have decided that I dont want my legs to get any bigger, (they are big enough) so I kept my reps between 12-15, with a good amount of weight. Any tips?

    Yes, lower your reps to 4-6 and increase your weight. This will build strength but not growth.

    I agree.. heavier with those reps doesnt build muscle as most think.. and you get to feel mighty strong going heavier!
