        All right, once I work my way through this package of hot dogs I will go looking for Real Meat, and if absolutely necessary take the bus to get it.

        I was tired as fuck today. Went to the gym and then realized "Oh, wait, this so isn't happening" after a few desultory pullups & dips. Maybe partly a mood issue; I'm not sure I've been as productive as I should lately, so guilt -> disgust at myself -> too demoralized & tired to do stuff. Took a nap in the afternoon. I have *got* to call the doctor's office back about getting a blood test; I am too sleepy for a supposedly healthy person.

        Breakfast: yogurt
        Lunch: energy bar, salad with chicken and peanut sauce, OJ (yeah, I know), some more yogurt.
        Dinner: piece of cheese.

          4 rounds of:
          3x5 pullups,
          3x5 dips,
          10 deadlifts @155,
          15 incline situps
          50-yard dash.

          Took 20 minutes. I've gotten weaker on deadlifts: 155 used to be trivial, but now it isn't.

            How did you start with all this fitness stuff? You have similar stats to me (I'm 5'6", around 130lbs, but have very small boobs so my weight is all stomach/butt/thighs). I am scared of the gym, I have no idea what to do/where to start. I don't want people watching me...

            You look strong! Also I agree that it looks like you should eat more... I bet that would help with energy. I've gotten a lot more energetic (after being perpetually sleepy for the past almost 10 years) since I started eating more fats & protein, and less carbs.

              How did I start?

              Well, I ran (not especially well) since high school, and then about two-and-a-half years ago I realized "I am sick of running in blizzards; I want to exercise somewhere WARM." So I looked on the internet for info about lifting weights and discovered Starting Strength. It's a great program for beginners. Squat, bench, deadlift, and press, three times a week, focus on continually increasing the weight on the bar. It works very, very well. I used to be unnaturally weak in my upper body -- like, my arms would get tired from brushing my hair. Now I think I'm easily stronger than the majority of women. You should go for it. Learn the movements (either from the book or Youtube) and enjoy the trial and error process.

              As for people watching you -- I remember worrying about that, long, long, ago. I was on the "boys' side" and I was scared the big dudes would ask me to leave! I just had to mutter under my breath "My tuition is the same as theirs, I have a right to be here too." (It was a college gym.) The truth is, most gym rats are nice to beginners, and nobody is going to point and giggle. Sometimes you'll even get friendly advice.

              Sadly, I've been a sleepyhead whether I eat a lot or a little. I suspect it's psychosomatic -- I'm kind of lazy and hate work -- but I'm getting a blood test just to rule out anything medical.

                yay!

                I think it takes a while but once your body gets use to this diet & heals itself you will have more energy. I agree w/ eating more food. A low cal day or two a week is probably good but you want some higher cal days too. I feel like the food Nazi but I'm only sharing my knowledge with you. If your goal is fat loss you should know that dairy is insulingenic, meaning it spikes insulin levels & may inhibit fat loss, but if you love it, you love it.

                I wish I had a buddy to lift with.

                  ^Me too. I don't think my sister is eating well enough to try lifting with me and my boyfriend would surpass me quickly O.O

                  There's a women's work-out room at my gym. I haven't been in there yet, but may explore the weight options there. I really need to earbuds so I can distract myself with music (boyfriend's pockets are evil and broke both his and mine!).

                      3 minute workout:
                      1 min rowing, 20 wall ball shots, 12 toes to bar (actually I'm not flexible enough to get my toes all the way up -- maybe 60 degrees.)

                      fooled around with snatches, but I'm still uncertain of the form
                      tried an L-sit but I can't do it straight-legged, sadly.

                      10 sprints: 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off.

                        What's a snatch? I really want to learn how to do them just so I can tell my husband that I, "Fooled around with snatches."

                          The snatch is an Olympic lift; you get the bar from the floor to overhead in one movement.
