The ball is rolling

I've been in a bit of a plateau lately. Now all of a sudden i'm losing weight. I tried on a pair of white 3/4 crop pants that now fit me (never worn before). How did i do it you ask? well, the answer is ..... I don't know!!!!! maybe taking jack3d before my workouts and training harder? (not that i feel i'm working harder). maybe splitting my 20min hiit cardio into 4 x 5 minute bursts spaced out in my weights workout? i just dont know!! but hey - thats great news for me. Diet is still good but suffers a bit on the weekend but i guess thats just my lifestyle taking over my willpower at the moment.
This weight loss has inspired and motivated me to go harder and be more disciplined and its such a good feeling. I think its time to do progress pics and stats next week. have a supercharged week everyone!

I did such a huge legs and butt workout last thursday it's taken me this long to recover !!!!! sacro joint is in AGONY (due to my lower back problems). hopefully tomorrow i can do lower again. In the meantime i'm doing huge upper w/outs and am actually getting some great shape and curves in my shoulders, bis and tris (without flexing!) This is amazing for me coz i'm mostly eating in a calorie deficit and i thought you couldn't build in that state? not complaining - just saying!!!! maybe i'm not eating in a calorie deficit and i think i am - hahahahahaha. i'm doing my maths and i'm coming in around 1200 a day and i have a physical job and doing 1 hour of weights and 20 mins hiit cardio 4 - 5 days a week so i'm confident i'm in deficit. all's good !!!

Girls, I need some advice ....

I've started researching cla and supplements and need some advice. Who is using them atm? what do you look for in a brand? what is a good brand? what else is a good supp? I've started using Jack3d to give me more energy for my workouts - pretty good - helps me lift heavier i think or is it mind over matter hehehe !! It does help me with hiit cardio at the end of a 1 hour weights workout. I do feel i need a helping hand esp. with the fat loss - i'm on a bit of a plateau. would love to hear opinions .... please !!!!

a slight deviation

Diet going pretty good - probably around 90%. Exercise going really good - happy with my performance. Sunday - a big no-no dietwise. My girlfriend and I took our girls to see the musical Hairspray. We booked it 3 months ago and were looking forward to it - a great day out in the city.
My girlfriend is on a diet as well, although not as hard-core as me at the moment. However, lunch was yum cha at Chinatown (omg barbeque pork rolls to die for) I should have taken photos! It was really good chinese food, really enjoyed it. Then off to Star City for the show. Just had to have a champers to take into the show!! Intermission - a magnum icecream and malteasers - YUM. The show was FANTASTIC!!!!! Afterwards we wandered around the city, the girls bought some clothes and we all had a Gloria Jeans. A great day but not so good for the diet. But it was a treat and i'm going to enjoy it.
Back to it on Monday. I bought some Jack3d coz i'm so tired before i even hit the gym. I was blogging to Lisa so i thought i'd give it try. does anybody else use this? i crashed and burned terribly afterwards (thank goodness i go to the gym at night so i can go to bed afterwards). Is this something I can use every day? I would love your comments.
