Arrow Steward of the Temple

Six months ago I finally did it, I took the plunge and started my second life long commitment... I married a wonderful woman (FYI the first commitment was to my Lord and Savior).

Now I am beginning another life long commitment to being a faithful steward over my body. For the past two weeks, I have been making the transition from an unhealthy diet to a fat burning diet.

I have given up my unhealthy vices and I am moving on while designating the money I spent towards said vices to my new lifestyle. To kick start my commitment, I am stepping into Jacob Wilson's fantastic 13 week diet and exercise program.

I got my hands on vitamins, and protein formulas and threw out all of my unhealthy foods in the fridge.

This week I started back at the gym, and I am devoting my first week to getting my body somewhat re-acclimated to weight lifting.

I will begin my log starting Monday, 01/05/08.

As a side note, do any of you think I should invest in a pre-workout mix like 'NO Xplode' or 'Muscle-Rx'?
Starting Stats:

Michael - 23 Years Old, 5 - 7, 205 pounds ()

Nope! Here's what I do:

60 Minutes Pre-workout
1.5 scoops whey
bowl of oatmeal
large glass of water

30 Minutes Pre-workout
1 serving Champion Amino Shooter +core +energy booster
-or-
1 or 2 serving BCAAs

I don't have the amino shooter every time because it has caffeine in it and I don't want my body to start resisting it's effects.

Also, bring a gallon jug of water to the gym with you. Try to drink atleast 1/2 of it during your workout! Studies show that even slight amount of dehydration can decrease your performance significantly!

Default W1-D1 Monday January 5th 2008

Thanks for the input NJI, I'll try that out.

OK so lets go over what has happened so far.

W1-D1 Monday January 5th 2008

Workout: Chest, Back, Shoulders, Traps

First day on the 13 Week Plan and the workout was rough, I really have lost a lot of strength since my old gym days. I was unable to finish my last one or two reps at the gym (no spotter) but I finished clean. I really was embarrassed with how few ponds I was able to lift but I know I will get back up there with persistence.

Diet

The diet was actually a lot of fun and I have been playing around with lean foods trying to find the best combo for myself.

Well that's it for W1-D1

Default W1-D2 Tuesday January 6th 2008

W1-D2 Tuesday January 6th 2008

Workout:

Biceps, Triceps & Forearms

Great workout today, I invested in a pre workout mix and I ingested a good bit of creoteen and I had the greatest pump of my life. My forarms felt like they were about to explode! I finished all sets and reps and finished clean and exhausted.

Diet:

Firmed up some more diet meals.

Default Diet & Nutrition

Ok this post is to lay out what vitamins and supplements etc I have obtained as a reference.

Pills, Powders & Shakes:

Creatine (Powder)
Flax (Powder)
Glutamine (Powder)
Glucosamine & MTM (Pill)
Green Tea (Pill)
Meal Substitution (Shake)
Muscle Milk (Powder)
NO XPLODE (Powder)*
Whey Protein (Powder)
Zink (Pill 50 mg)

* I already purchased the powered before reading NJI's post, luckily I got the powder for a steal

In the AM:
As soon as I wake, I consume: Green Tea, Glutamine (5 grams), Glucosamine and Zink while drinking my meal substitution.

30 Mins Pre-Workout:
Creatine, Glutamine (5 grams), & NO XPLODE (Note: NO XPLODE is crazy, I consume it and in less than 30 mins I feel such an amp. I have so much energy, and I have to go the the gym to get it all out)

Post-Workout:
Creatine, Glutamine (5 grams), Whey Protein & Muscle Milk

Each one of those ingestions are considered one of my six meals, the other three contain chicken, oats, sweet potatoes & tuna.

If there is anything that you guys think I am missing please let me know, I have set aside some cash so I can do this right.

Thanks!
