Grrr I want my punching bag installed. It didn't fit into my Jeep so is still in Montreal at my parents place. My brother is suppose to being it here next time he comes which I hope is this weekend or next at the latest.
They're not bad, but certainly not for everyone. I like boiling them, cubing them, and then tossing them with pasta, fresh basil, an infused olive oil, and a little bit of parmesan.


I want a bag so bad, but literally have nowhere to hang it since we don't have a basement. Suppose I could get a frame, but just don't have the money for that.

Rarely, if ever, see fresh turnips for sale by us. Although did see them yesterday up here in Chicago... Almost didn't even recognize them at first.

Who gives a crap about pot pie? It's garbage food. And most processed foods are garbage food since they're usually filled with lots of cheap crappy carbs.

(and yeah it seems odd that I have to put every time I lose weight, but its always been after a baby, I have had too many of those! So I gain with pregnancy, and then I'm always back in great shape in no-time).
It's pretty easy for a woman who has given birth to lose weight since nursing uses tons of calories.

That's a crap diet for someone who lifts. It's too low in protein, not enough vegetables, and too many crappy carbs. Do you bake your own bread or it is store bought processed bread?

I did this and lost like 20 lbs and 3 inches off my waist in a month. It's really effective but you will crave carbs like you won't believe while you're on it.

I am not 'lifting' at the moment if you happened to actually read the thread. I also hit at least 170 g of protein, so no, for what I need, I am definitely getting enough.

The salad has more than 7 vegetables in it. The bread is whole wheat or rye, it is baked in a local bakery.

I doubt that unless you are counting the crap protein from all that bread and pasta you're eating.

LOL, as long as you are getting most of your protein from complete protein sources, distinguishing incomplete and complete proteins is asinine.

Hey believe it or not I agree with you on that one. I prefer to get it from things like meat, nuts etc but I do sprinkle Salba for example on some of my meals and it has 2.6g of protein per 12 g serving or sprouted chia seeds which as 5g per 15g serving.

LOL, at thinking that getting protein from wheat is the same as getting protein from meat.

Do you spend your time working out at the infamous Monster Gym in Montreal's West Island? I mean that is a gym for winners.

Incomplete and complete proteins combine during digestion throughout the day. Considering that I have a healthy source of complete protein intake every day (not to mention every meal has both complete and incomplete proteins, lol), it would not matter if I was counting incomplete proteins or not.

Holy **** was the gym ever packed today. Jeez, I thought there would be a lot of New Years' people, but there were far more than I could have imagined. I didn't even get to do a couple of exercises I wanted to, because of the sheer amount of people. Hopefully it'll die down quickly.

Easiest money these gyms make, the new year resolution person who pays for a full year, shows up for a month maybe two and never comes back until the next year...

By that logic, you should be eating egg whites instead of meat. Best protein out there.

Yeah it's pretty common. I don't do curls in the squat rack like many of the members at my gym, so at times I'll just take a bench press and do curls there.

I've actually never seen anyone do curls at the squat rack. But it just didn't make sense to me - there are plenty of smaller barbells on the rack you can use for curls and he was doing just the barbell, not 135+lbs...

Its true, but I can't nurse. So it actually isn't the case for me.

But yeah, for the most part nursing can pretty easily get you back to pre-pregnancy weight, it isn't the same for everyone though.

4 sets of 10 with good form as well, so haven't lost too much from having to do other back exercises instead
Just curious Bassassin, as I do a lot of chinups myself, were the chinups the cause of the subscapularis and bicep tendonitis? Actually, speaking of scapularis, blah, what have you done to rehab? I have a loosey-goosey scap (shoulder-blade), and am worried about strengthening it improperly.

I saw someone doing dumbbell curls at the bench press the other day FFS. Just sat on the bench while someone was waiting to use it properly.
