Sleep? If I get five hours, Iím doing good. Itís usually four or less.

Michael,

My girlfriend has been cooking dinners from Cooking Light magazine. She just picks the meals out that have a fat content of less than 30%. I drink a protein shake before bed to make up for any lack there may be with those meals. Iíve been very impressed with how good some of the recipes are in that magazine.

Glad to hear you kicked the smoking habit. I kicked chewing tobacco last year after going through a can ever two or three days for the past thirty years or so. What a bitch itís been to not cave. I made a deal with my girlfriendís sister who got in a bad car accident. She broke her neck and was paralyzed from the neck down. I made a deal that if she could shake my hand, Iíd quit. Four months later she shook my hand. Sheís walking on her own now. Sheíll probably be running marathons again in another year, knowing her.

Jason,

Thatís why I say itís a way of life and not a program. Iím in my 40ís now and I can feel the effect. I donít recover as fast anymore and I canít lift near as much or run as fast, but I still give it a hell of go. I have no choice to keep it up or start sporting a set of moobs. Plus, when Iím out of shape, I feel horrible and my demeanor turns horrible for anyone around me. If my cloths donít fit, Iím uncomfortable and I just feel like crap all around. The downside is itís a down right pain in the ass to find cloths that fit. I canít imagine how hard it must be for the pro body buildersÖ.

Mike, I'm glad to hear she is doing better! Also, kudos to you for giving up the chewing tobacco.

Try to make it 6 and see if it helps with the recovery or are you like me and it just can't happen. I know on the odd day I do get about 6 I feel great.

If that isn't incentive to push yourself to be a better all around person, I don't know what would be. Glad to hear she has come that far.

You hit the nail on the head. You have described how I have felt for about a year now(luckily no moobs yet) and the nagging shoulder injuries just won't go away, partial rotator cuff tears numerous times over the years. Now when I push the shoulders a little too hard they swell up and it just won't go away. I have also been having trouble with my feet and as a mechanic they get no rest what so ever, well except when posting. I am lucky in that I really have no need for good fitting clothes, jeans and T-shirt are about as good as I need. Pro-body builders can get away with being in sweat pants and T-shirts 95% of the time and the rest is tailored to fit, they have it easy, at least until they retire\:\).

I was extremely active until about 10 years ago. I trained most of my life in Choy Lee Fut & Chut Sing Tong Long although I did try Eagle Claw and Northern Dragon styles and didn't take to them very well. Then job stress got to me and I went down hill.

I am surprised that no one has mentioned the terrible effects of job-related stress. Since I quit my job I've been feeling and looking a lot better. And I've managed to get back into working out. Maybe some day I'll have the energy to pick up the weapons again and start swinging \:\) .

I have some Bose speakers you could practice with ;\)

But you are correct, stress is a problem as well, which relates back to the whole sleep theme, as the body reacts to sleep deprivation pretty much the same way as job stress or any other stressors. It can, and usually will add fat especially when not eating in a healthy manner.

Mike, I'm so happy to hear of Lisa's recovery. When you told us of her terrible accident and that the surgeon stated that she was paralyzed from the neck down and that there was little chance that she'd ever walk again, it was certainly distressing news about such an active young woman. You requested our prayers, and I certainly remembered Lisa in my prayers at Mass, as I'm sure that many more of our members did as well. Great to hear that her fighting spirit and God's help has brought her through this.

Stress effects people differently. I lead a high stess life for 15 years and it burned me out.

My grandmother, on the other hand, survived the second world war in Germany as a jew, somehow mannaged to avoid concentration camps, stole food from the Russian army and laughed her ass of telling us about it when we were kids.

I now enjoy 8 hours of blessed sleap a night. If stuff dosn't get done, it dosn't get done. I managed to put myself in a job that I can leave behind completely every day. I am a mucho happy person now.

On all that food stuff, I'm surprised that Jason is about the only one that talked about veggies. I remember reading about some research where the diet consisted of fruit vegies and nuts period. Cholesterol levels in all the subjects dropped to low levels within two weeks of starting the diet and most reported having much more energy... and gas small nicks cuts and bruises also healed much more quickly. We need to have a high vegitable intake to get all those micro-nutrients and anti-oxidents that we need so much to remain healthy.

Now 'scuse me pfffft... I have a hankering for some carrots.

mmmmmm.....veggies.....

I actually like veggies, even brussel sprouts. My family, however, likes fruits. So there is a conflict there. It isn't that I don't like some fruits, but they are things like apples, oranges, watermelon, and bananas. My youngest is pretty much a carrot and corn (from my wife's uncle's farm) eater. My oldest will eat a little more veggies, like some green beans. Everyone likes starchy potatoes. My wife is corn, green beans, and maybe peas.

I usually finish off the veggies that others don't eat.

I love fruits but I usually wont take the time to peel and orange or chew on an apple so I usually toss them into the blender with my protein shakes. Veggies we try to eat a serving with every meal.

Many of you have taken coffee out of your diets and that's not necessarily a good thing, coffee and tea are great antioxidants as well as stimulants to help kick your metabolism into fat burning mode, I drink a max of 2 cups a day of either and it has really helped me on those hard start days.

We had a great meal last night, I love BLT's so we subsitituted bacon with Turkey bacon (50% of the fat) low fat miracle whip, lettuce, avocado ( if your going to eat fat avocado is one of the best sources) tomato, jalapeno rings, low fat provolone cheese on toasted 1 gram of fat whole wheat bread.
Absolutely delicious, as a side we had a can of Campbell's Tomato soup with some extra oregano and pepper mixed in. The whole family loved it and it's not a gut buster.

Last nights supper: Lentil stew, big salad
Night before: Stir fry, 1/2 green pepper, small onion, handful of baby carrots, bok choy, 1/2 portabello mushroom a little chicken and a little rice.

My favourite chilly has maybe 2oz of ground beef per serving consisting mostly of carrots, corn, peas, zuchini...

I love veggies!!
