    dont want to gain weight really but want to tone up wouldnt be to fussed if i did gain weight as long as it was lean muscle and i had more definition, as for a six pack a flat stomach would be great for me!!

    Nice one, spoiler added too. Looks like you could have the "6-pack" well within your grasp. Get some push-ups in to bring out your chest a bit too.

    Awesome journal mate, obviously taking it seriously which is ace.

    I would suggest that the brekkie is one of the most important meals so perhaps make it a priority to make sure that this is a good 'un (i.e. not missed and not compromised). Also reduce the carbs in so far as you can in the evening meal (a baked potato at night is probably gonna 'rest' as opposed to be burnt up as energy).

    In terms of the gym try a bit or cardio as a warm up (5 mins) then do the weights and then the final cardio blast. You need to ensure that the body has enough protein to sustain (and build) muscle. If you workout on low levels of protein your body enters a catabolic state where the muscle is relied upon as an energy source.

    Get some pics up so you can keep a record of 'visual progress'. Enjoyable read

    thanks zippey

    i have muesli and fruit at work and normally get a good breakfast in but if i cop a client straight off i cant get to it v.annoying!!

    my problem is im a lot stronger at the cardio side of things i ran the london marathon this year with only basic training and didnt struggle,i tend to find that i do a warm up then hit the weights till i cant do no more but within 5 mins of finishing them i could run a sub 1hr 10k without blinking.

    i would prefer to seperate them so that major cardio was done on other days but i dont know enough about weights to push myself, i also train alone so dont have a spotter to help me increase what im lifting any suggetions?
