Steak!

What a gorgeous, succulent, well-cooked steak I just had for evening meal! With lots of mixed veg, and some equally tasty & beatiful mushroom sauce stuff. Yum yum yum! *happy belly*

I've been eating very healthy for a week... lots of salad, veg, cereals... and much less fried sausages, bacon and deserts.

Not that I'm fat or unfit, but that I want to be fitter!

Oh and by request (kind-of) I'm trying to see what it takes to get a sixpack back!

In the gym I'm doing the same upper-body routine (my weakspot) that I planned on doing out here, but have also started adding more cadiovascular (my strong area) to the mix too, just to keep that side of things up.

Steak.... yummy! I'm not a vegetarian (and could probably never be one with my weird medical diet), so once in awhile some tender, juicy steak really hits the spot. Filet mignon or chateaubriand. :)

"Sixpack" refers to abdominals. Is that what you're talking about? And, do you do your cardio after your weights?

Ooh, big food words! Where's Sam when I need her???


Yeah, sixpack is abs.

Cardio: I warm up on a bicycle, whilst doing upper-body stretches. Doesn't count as CV, probably. Then weights, then I do (as you ask) do cardio afterwards. Somtimes I return to weights after the cardio, after a water break, but I don't tend to do much 'cos it's nearly always 3am in the morning and I get tired!

I'd be too tired for workouts at 3 a.m.! Found these two (and one might help describe why I say 'cardiorespiratory' vs. cardiovascular, but really it's just the medical terminology training years ago ;)):
