    It really can be quite funny watching people argue themselves into a hole.

    I got into an argument with a woman recently on how her weight loss shakes (not protein shakes, a meal replacement shake geared specifically towards weightloss) were a waste of money, probably deficient in nutrients and depriving her of the enjoyment of real food. When asked to elaborate, I called the drink a processed fast food.
    "It's not a fast food!" she scoffed, rolled her eyes and pretty much thought I was a moron.
    "How long did it take you to prepare it?"
    *Awkward pause*, "A couple seconds in the shaker"
    "So it's a fast food"
    "No, it's refined by scientists in a long process to ensure it has plenty of nutrients and vitamins and can be fit into part of a healthy lifestyle" (ie, diet) she said, snobbily and somewhat offended.
    "Oh. So it's processed"

    Things kinda degraded from there. But it's fun arguing

Just ideal at that moment in time.
    I kinda get what you mean. I don't worry to much about high/low anything or any kind of cycling - we're not competetive bodybuilders, here, and the only people who judge us on our physique (to a degree where carb cycling is necessary) are not worth dealing with.

    I don't believe there is a thing as an unhealthy food. Period. In moderation, nothing, if in the context of a well micro/macronutrient based diet is bad for you. Even if it has that 1g of trans fat. Will it kill you? Um, there are other people consuming tons of the stuff daily, what's 1-3g of it a week going to do?

    I'd agree with doing that. It really is something that needs adjusting to. Maybe mix it in with some ground meat?

    DEADLIFTS!

    You'd be surprised how friendly gym people are. It really is an awesome place to connect.

    Teacher, lawyer, cop, gamer, student, writer, scientist - whatever, you're all there for the same reason: you care about your body, want to be fit and strong and enjoy being active. Personal experience dictates you should get on great with people there

She felt my shoulders, squirmed, and said "oooh, god, they're solid! I'm not sure if I like them!" :')

    My dad said "you are supposed to be a woman, you know. You'll look like a bliddy bouncer soon enough."

    I think...I'll take these as compliments. Means I've got decent shoulders.

    Anyway, where did the conception that women shouldn't have muscle come from? Is it some sort of patriarchal technique to keep us enslaaaaaved?

    Make them watch these. This guy is awesome, extremely knowledgeable and informative. Show them other stuff about women who lift, too.

    Also, point out... How could a girl - yes, the gender that does not have testosterone pumping out there ears - get bulky on accident lifting weights whilst skinny men are in the gym every day lifting with the intention of getting bulky and failing to do so?

    You could just buy a big container of cheap yet relatively good quality ice cream and have 1-2 scoops a night. Do you have Tip Top over there?
    Dark chocolate and coffee, running through my veins...

    Like, literally, the whole world! It's horrible :P

    Though I did hear caloric requirements increase by about 25%? Someone falsify this? I'm not sure. It would make sense, I guess...and it's common to gain water weight around this time and lose it in the following days after.

    I think some people realise that once they get past a certain point there's no turning back ;) they're either dead wrong, stubborn, or both :P

    That's fair enough. Mind you, you have a great body anyway without needing to do any of these things. I think for some people, it may be the final brick in the wall; for them it's necessary to looking how they want. However, I agree, you should never judge someone based on their physique.

    Agreed. Hell, I think transfat is the anti-christ (SLIGHT hyperbole there) but I won't die if I had some. I try my best to avoid it obviously.

    As long as you have a mutual passion and the same sort of mindset (in this case being health) you can be friends with just about anyone right?

    Cheers. I'll watch the videos later, and if any further comments are made, I'll get them to watch it. I also said about how some men having a hard time putting it on: but the thing is, I have a pretty easy time putting it on. My body likes to maintain its tan and its muscles :P

    I LOVE kidney beans.

    Yes! Typo of habit. Sorry :P

    Also, we have pretty good quality ice cream round here. From the cooos doon in Cornwall. I was just on about getting it while I was queuing for the concert. It didn't happen, though, so it's good :P

    Kerrygold is the best :) in the UK we have other grassfed brands, too, but I've never really tried them; besides, KG is delicious and accessible

    I think rich things help with cravings - dark chocolate, coffee, raw cacao, that sorta stuff. Coffee and chocolate help me too ;)

    Thanks! Add in kidney beans, they're delicious :)

    Heh, 80/20 rule is good stuff. Didn't implement it last night, though, as I didn't have the ice cream after all :P

    It's very habitual, the way I start my journal entries: always with the date underlined, even though it says the date at the top of the entry. I dunno, it always helps me start off. When i don't know what to write on my essays, I force a few lines out and then the proverbial wordvomiting proceeds.

    I've also just noticed that I've been writing the wrong date all day. Ah well.

    Today about 75% of my teachers were off because of the strike, so I only had three lessons today. The rest of the day was spent in private study, where I listened to the same song over and over again: Porcupine Tree - Arriving Somewhere But Not Here - YouTube and revised for my law test tomorrow. it's on marriage and divorce, and we have to learn all the acts and laws (obvs) and stuff. I can easily remember Valier v Valier, cos I found that kinda amusing. Marriage Act 1949; Marriage Act 1994; Matrimonial Causes Act 1983; Family something or other...hmm, better do some more revision. I know the process of marriage and divorce; the exact definitions are harder to remember.

    i also had an RE test on "matters of life and death". I always get Bs in RE because I "don't answer the question properly" :') hopefully i've done better this time. I don't like RE so I don't revise for it; I just throw mine, and others opinion's everywhere with some Bible quotes and hope for the best: the best being a B, but I'm not bothered. I once got an A, y'know. Maybe this time I'll get an A.

    I was going to go to the gym tonight but I'm really tired off the gig (which was excellent! they played 31 songs and I got thrown around loads and asked to dance by some woman. So fun. Last time I went some 25 year old offered to buy me a drink. I was 13. I did decline) which was 3 hours long; and my 6 hour sleep. I can run on less than 8 hours but I'm not so efficient :/ so I'm going tomorrow and Sunday

    Food
    Breakfast: Omelette + pear. I bloody love pears! 2 cups of coffee too.
    20131012_125227.jpg

    Lunch: salmon and avocado salad + an apple
    salad.jpg

    Snack: like 20g 50% chocolate (don't have the heart to call it "dark) which had a fair bit o'sugar unfortunately :/ i can't remember how much...maybe...10g? Hm, that doesn't sound a lot. maybe I saw 20% - which is 20% of my daily intake in sugar. Idk...mind you, i didn't eat the full bar. and a nectarine. and like 3 cups of coffee.

    Dinner: venison steak with sweet potato and veg. Doesn't look the best, but was pretty good.
    download.jpg

    And dessert: mango and berries with yogurt. I should mix the yoghurt in so the picture looks a little, eh, better...what can I say, my food isn't aesthetically pleasing
    froot.jpg

    I also had 20g 85% chocolate. Proper dark init.

    Thinking of the gig...Bowling For Soup, who are American, got some guy up on stage who looked exactly like the guitarist. It was so uncanny; i was standing next to him and I was about to ask him why he was in the crowd, then I realised. Anyway, it wasn't only me who had this epiphany: the singer noticed, and got the guy up on stage to get his photo next to Chris (guitarist) the dude looked like he was gonna faint, bless him.

    Where is this story going? Well, the short conversation between the doppelganger and the singer:
    "So, dude, what's your name?"
    "Peeetahh."
    "...Peter."

    Basically, my accent probably butchers the English language; it also makes anyone and everyone who speaks with it sound thick.

    Geordies, eh.
    I'm not an emo, I swear

    Thanks!

    As for the omelette...maybe you weren't using enough cooking fat? Here's how I make mine:
    - beat 3 eggs
    - melt 15g butter in pan
    - add egg mixture
    - leave to cook for 3-4 minutes (until thick and spongy) and make sure the mixture doesn't stick; gently lift up with spatula occasionally
    - add filling
    - gently fold over, press down, and leave for abut 30 seconds
    - slide on plate :P

    Also, HB are amazing I like the yolks the same way too - fluffy

    Indeed! The best desserts are made with fruit and dairy, imo. Ice cream with fruit; cc and fruit; baked fruit and cream/ice cream; yoghurt...mmm...add some dark chocolate and/or nuts and it's basically perfect :3
