Not one but two things.

    Okay, so I signed up for the gym and I've really been "freestyling" when I go in there. I realized that I should stick to some plan though I've seen some progress anyways...

    RealJock has all these great work plans. How do you guys remember everything on the daily though? I have a horrible memory. Is printing them out and looking a little lost a bad thing? Maybe people admire the fact that I'm following a plan? Any sneak ways to remember your daily work out without having a big piece of paper.

    THOUGH, when I did take a weight training course in college (I wish I could take more but not being offered) we ALL took out a piece of paper for our workouts.


    Secondly, I grew up in a hispanic house based around a lot of cooking and fatty foods. Hard to not eat with the family, but I try to avoid it. I see a lot of people dropping a ton of weight when they move out, get to do there own groceries, ect. Some friends even changed there diet by going vegan and such but found it so impossible when they came back home.

    If you're having problems with eating the family meals, just take smaller portions. Esp. when it comes to mom's home cooking that includes lots of fat and grease.

    For the gym, take a print out of the routine and if you need help then ask someone, otherwise maybe someone will ask what you have and then help you. could get a workout buddy out of the deal.

    When it comes to working out you need to break it up into parts and there's a succession to the exercises that you do

    Always...warm up first

    Larger muscles like chest and back get worked out first
    4-5 different exercises for each body part
    4 sets 8-12 reps

    Then you go onto the smaller muscles like bi's and tri's
    Here 3-4 sets 8-12 reps
    and then a cool down

    I see lots of guys with smaller spiral notebooks - like the 5x7 size.
    You could copy the workout into one. Then no one will know that you're following an online plan.

    Good idea.
