My 30th B’day is about a month away and in three days I will be putting my diet and workout routine into overdrive as I enter the next decade of my life stronger, faster, better and of course thinner!
My new personal life & fitness goal is to drop dead weight and become more discipline in obtaining the things I want the most by living a succinct and garbage free life.
If my personal thinspo isn’t enough for you to trash your terrible eating habits then check out the latest entry 18 of “Junk Food Journals.”
Hello, my name is Chris Newman (IG: Christophe_Mari). I’m from Washington D.C. and I’m 29 years old. I work at Vida Fitness in Washington D.C. I love to read books, listen to music, write, travel, shop, learn, deejay, play video games, and spend time with my friends and family.

My name is Christian Carter (IG: AllOutOfHashtags), 34 year old southern man who has called Manhattan home for the past 10 years. I’m still the same 9 year-old southern boy who preferred day dreaming over dreaming while sleep. I’m funny, loyal and spend my life knee-deep in a downbeat, drinking margaritas and creating art of all kinds.
I started working out as a youngin’ after while watching the movie Aliens with my family my brother proclaimed that I was built just like the lead actress Sigourney Weaver. They’re jokes still play in my head every time I think I don’t have another set/rep in me. “Come through Sigourney”.
Workout Philosophy: Try anything once. Rock Climbing, Spin, hell… Climb a tree.
Breakfast: a Smoothie or Fresh Juice.
Lunch: Any and all things Mexican.
Dinner: Mexican or Sushi and a Margarita.
Cheat Day: I eat what I want and workout hard. Indulging in food you love isn’t cheating on the quest to a better you, it’s simply you enjoying your life.
Diet Trick: don’t know if I believe in the idea of tricks. What I will say is a varied diet is important. Most people eat a variation of 10 meals their entire life. This causes them to lose out on many important vitamins, minerals and fats.
Problem Area: Ive learned to not fight the God given structure and shape of my body. Always editing but I’m no longer giving it to the idea that any of it is a PROBLEM.
Key to Discipline: A healthy addiction to growth and change.
Workout Routine: Do something physical a every day.
I’m Anthony Black (IG: MRBLACKTALKS) 28 years old from St. Petersburg/Tampa Florida your typical serial monogamist who loves romance, Carrie Bradshaw, sarcasm, barbells, and Beyoncé. I work in sales in the multifamily property management industry in the sunshine state. Obsessive amounts of gym time & blogging keep me out of club and off xanax. Basically, I want to be hot forever.
Workout Philosophy: I’m a strong believer in my favorite hashtag, #TrophyHusbandGoals. It’s not about being idolized. To me, it’s all about being confident, feeling sexy, and knowing that I’m worthy of being placed on a mantle piece.
Breakfast: Since I workout in the mornings before work, I usually have a vegan protein shake, (pea protein, brown rice protein, & hemp protein mix), an egg & turkey sausage.
Lunch: Grilled chicken salad with a banana or Quaker protein banana nut oatmeal.
Dinner: I have extremely limited patience and cooking skills so talapia, broccoli, & a glass of white wine is my go to dinner choice.
Cheat Day:This only happens when I’m drunk and it’s 2am, but my favorite cheat meal has to be a Taco bell, chicken quesarito–no siracha with a side of sour cream. In Jesus’ name.
Diet Trick: Apple cider vinegar helps with digestion & works as an appetite suppressant. I’ve also used those waist trainer-esque, belly wraps while working out. I’m no Kim Kardashian but I do think it made a difference with my mini muffin tops.
Problem Area: My stomach. Believe it or not, I can bloat like a house. One meal could be the difference between me having a six pack or a two pack.
Key to Discipline: I usually shame myself and feed my inner narcissist by following ridiculously hot people on instagram. That usually gives me the superficial motivation I need to get off my ass.
Workout Routine: I do a five day schedule. A chest day, leg day, back & shoulders, leg day #2, and biceps/triceps.
