on the plus side, i've managed to keep up with my nutrition and workouts this week even through late nights and 3.45am wake ups. i've been doing a circuit training program and it absolutely killed me, it was great!!! cant wait to keep it going next week. i also got my body fat re-tested and it has dropped!!!! SOOOOOOOOO HAPPPPYYYY. its taken hard work since i was already on the leaner range of the scale for my age but its worth it. i've been trying to increase my food especially protein and have also increased my workouts and i can definitely tell the difference. my strength, endurance and stamina have all lifted so even if i didnt see a decrease in body fat i would have still been happy. but YAY for improvements :):) ok on with the bloggy!
makes me want to gym!
holy frig his arms are MASSIVE
One of the best quick breakfasts you can prepare is a bowl of oatmeal, especially if you are active and health conscious. Oatmeal is rich in complex, energy-sustaining carbohydrates, low in fat and high in fiber. What's more it is economically priced and easy to make!

Get in push-up position on the ground with your feet on a bench or step, hands slightly wider than shoulders. Lower chest toward floor (drop to your knees if necessary).
