Glad to see your log up and running after the few days delay. SO I am a bit confused, are you an aspiring figure model? or are you one? Because your profile says you have only been working out for 1 month.

Also why do you have your last meal at 10.30? why not have your last meal just the PW meal at 9 since its not good for your body to go to bed full (and im sure you are quite full from 3 eggwhites and whole egg plus 1/5l of water)

also what does your training look like

oh and welcome to T-Nation! :)[/quote]

hi cheeta, and thanks for the post! i guess you could say i am an aspiring figure model, i don’t know if i will ever compete, but i want to look and be as strong as the ladies i see in the pics on figure athlete.

i’ve been training with a friend of mine who is a bodybuilder, he’s been monitoring my nutrition as well (that’s why i’m starting to post it on here, so he can check it). so its been a little over a month, and so far i’ve noticed some significant changes everywhere, but mostly in my arms and waistline.

we hit the gym 5-6 days a week, training one part per day plus 30 min cardio. (i’m still working on my “bodybuilding lingo” so bear with me :))

my biggest struggle is keeping with the diet, mostly because i get bored of the food/cheat/don’t know if i’m eating the right thing at the right time/am not hungry and have to force myself to eat.

are you a figure model? any advice on how to overcome these problems?

Just remember Diet is KEY! You can work your ass of at the gym but if your diet is crap then its not worth bothering with (in my opinion)
I know how it is to have to force your self to eat, but once you get used to the about 6 meals a day you will feel your metabolism boosting and your muscles will need all the energy it can get so it will be begging you for food every 2 to 3 hours.
Just so you dont cheat make sure you kind never go hungry because if your starving you are more likely to cheat on your diet than other vise.

Many of the boys on this site know what they are talking about and some of the girls to :wink: but mostly this site is great for inspiration and motivation so stick with it. If you post your routine in your log also it might help you keep motivation to stick with your diet…since people are watching!

good point! i’ll definately start posting that once i get more comfortable with this site, still learning how to get around…
