  1. Flawed back at it tag team style with NatRose and PES (Sponsored)


    So its been awhile since I posted regularly here so I'm many of you know who I am from previous posts and many probably are new and have no idea.

    Anyways Im back again and ready to kick some ass with PES and I brought my girlfriend NatalieRose with to also run some PES supps!

    If you are here at our blog then you probably know that Natty over at Performance Enhancing Supplements has been kind (and awesome) enough to not only offer me the chance to log 3 of their awesome supplements (Alpha-T2, Erase, and Shift), but he also went ahead and offered my girlfriend the opportunity to run a log of Alpha-T2 and Caffeine. Thanks Natty!

    History:

    FlawedGrunt:
    Just a quick brief history for me. I have been training with weights on and off for about 10 years now… and my body composition is nothing to be proud of It’s almost sad to think about what kind of shape I would be in if I would have trained consistently this whole time or got my diet in check. Better late then never right? Well I finally got what I think I would consider a hold on what I need to do for nutrition which I think should prove big changes for me. This also is not my first time running a supplement for PES, when Alpha-T2 first came out I bought a bottle impulsively and Natty and PES were so impressed with my transformation that they sent me a second bottle. PES must have been impressed I’m the first set of pictures on their “How Good is Alpha-T2″ Thread. Check it out here How good is Alpha-T2?

    Anyways back to the history.I let myself slip a little in the last few month. Nat and I got puppies and I got lazy about my diet and working out… but its time to kick some ass!

    PhatNat:

    Unfortunately, I have quite the limited training history, to say the least. I have never considered myself someone who needs to work out to stay in shape and healthy. I have always maintained a weight of about 110 and could literally eat anything that showed up on my plate. That is, until lately. For the past year or 2 I have noticed myself steadily gaining poundage which has lovingly adored my sides. I slowly but surely acquired the dreaded love handles (ugh) and more jiggle in my arms, stomach, and thighs. I have felt tired, sluggish, and very unhappy about my body. Recently, I decided to start a calorie counter on my phone and was quite troubled to have to list myself as “sedentary” under the activity level. Another saddening moment was just the other week. While standing on the scale at the doctor’s office, I was shocked and embarrassed to clock in at my highest weight ever, 132 lbs. I know this may not be horribly high to some, but it is definitely not where I want my body to be at 24 years old.

    My plan is to turn my diet and portion sizes around, as well as plenty of exercise. I am planning on doing some intense cardio sessions at least 3 times a week and also weight training sessions 2-3 times a week.

    This will honestly be my first real (and lasting) attempt at any kind of actual weight loss. I have never tried any workout supplements before either and I am extremely excited and motivated. I can’t wait to see and feel the results!

    Flawed Day 1 Review:

    Energy:
    After both doses morning and afternoon my energy has been great. Initially this morning I was actually a little twitchy from taking a dose of 2 AT2 but it didnt seem as bad on the 1 pill dose in the afternoon. It is out of place for me to get twitchy on AT2 but that should be a good sign!

    Mood:
    Mood has been great all day!

    Appetite:
    Nat and I share the same appetite suppression today… initially not much appetite after taking our doses but within about 2-3 hours I was getting hungry again. Diet hasn’t been overflowing with calories today but carbs have been pretty low.

    Mental Awareness:
    Mentally I seem to be on my game today.

    Overview/Initial Impression:
    So far so good! Its about 5:25 PM now and I am starting to get my normal tiredness that I get while taking AT2… my sleeping patterns are usually pretty awesome on AT2… My workout was so so today… fell short on a few numbers since last week but that may have had something to do with the heavy drinking Thur for St. Pats and Sat for my buddies bachelor party… No drinking for quite awhile from now on!!




    Nat Day 1 Review:


    Energy:
    I have a huge amount of energy right now about 90 minutes after taking the supplement. It is actually pretty hard to stay sitting in my chair and I don’t think I’ve ever typed so fast in my life. I’m actually fighting the urge to get up and spring around the building a few times! Not sure how that would go over with management…

    Mood:
    My mood is pretty normal. I haven’t seen any drastic changes so far…no ups or downs. I’m still just as frustrated with the customers I talk to on the phone, but that’s to be expected.

    Appetite:
    I seem to not have an appetite for the first 3 hours or so after taking the supplements. After that 3 hour mark I start to get hungry. Once I eat it feels like I am fuller longer.

    Mental Awareness:
    My mental awareness is through the roof. I am speeding through calls and getting all of my work done pretty quickly. I have been multi-tasking like crazy all day too!

    I haven't measured in a while, but is guess my bis are 15-15.5, and calves 16.5-17. I really don't want to measure them.

    Nat, don't worry, as we get older our bodies change - something I have found out myself over the last year, and what we use to be able to get away with, we can't anymore. Just find a new method that works for you and go with it.

    All the best in achieving your goals, both of you! You've got some great product to help

  11. FG, old homie...good to see you on here!!

    you know I'm in for this! haven't been too active on here the last few months, but I'll be checking in as often as I can!

    Cheers bud!

    And, yes! the guys over at PES are awesome! PES and Genomyx are my favorite new(er) companies...liking some of the innovation coming out of these players!

    I'm thinking about running something similar in the near future:
    Alpha-T2
    Erase
    DCP
    Glycobol (maybe)

  19. Day 2


    Today didn't start out so good for me. Went to bed last night at 11pm and was laying wide awake in bed by 3:30AM... Initially I got up and decided I was gonna do cardio in an hour to two, but I started getting extremely tired finally around 6AM. So I went back to sleep until 8AM and at that point had no desire to do cardio.... So when Nat asked me to do the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred with her today... damn right I did because I wanted to burn the calories!

    Heres How It Went (Nat found the level one layout on sparkpeople.com)

    STRETCHES

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Once that was done... I was sweating... but I wanted more. So I decided it was time to go on a little run. First time running in forever... In the rain none the less I cut myself short on my run thinking my calves wouldnt hold up and I ended up running 1.2 miles in 10 min... Average of 7.5 mph and approximately a 8:15 mile... Im happy with those numbers for my first time running a mile in... well I cant remember the last time!

    Food:

    Bfast
    Eggs, Pepper, Onion, Potato and Bacon Skillet
    2 Pieces of Toast
    1 Scoop Protein

    Snack
    Summer Sausage and Mild Cheddar Cheese

    Lunch
    Whole Wheat Chicken Sandwich w/ Provalone Cheese
    Salad

    Snack
    String Cheese
    1 Serving Almonds

    Dinner
    Chicken Breast
    Appoximately 1/2 Cup Corn
    1 Mashed Potato

    Pre-Bed
    1 Scoop Whey/Casein

    Overview:
    Overall I thought today was another good day. No shaking after my first dose today but I definitely had a good clean energy... and I dont feel dry from the Erase or AT2 yet but I've been sucking down quite a bit of water. Appetite was about normal today... and usually anything with yohimbine in it cuts my endurance but that run seemed to go ok


    -----------------------------
  20. Nat Day 2


    Unlike Troy, I slept great. Had some real weird dreams but still slept fine. I was a little groggy this morning, but that quickly changed after taking my AT2 and caffeine this morning I was ready to go. I decided to do Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred since it has a combination of both cardio and strength training. I have done it once or twice before, but never made it through the entire video.

    Overview:
    Today I seemed to react to the AT2 and caffeine a little less than the first day...not so jittery. I kept a great mood and had awesome energy though - no head-bobbing at my desk. I was actually motivated enough to workout after work and kept my stamina! I seemed a little more hungry today, but that could be from decreasing the amount of calories in my diet. So far, I'm very pleased with how great I feel!

    WHITE WHALE!

  25. Just an overview of today:

    I slept great again last night and my mood was still pretty good during the day. I definitely felt more accustomed to the supplements. I stayed awake, motivated, and alert all day. My appetite was definitely in full swing. One thing that I did notice was that right after I took the AT2 and caffeine I would get pretty warm. After a while I got cold. My hands felt clammy and had "limited" blood flow. It seemed like I couldn't get them warm. Other than that tho, I felt pretty good all day!

    Food:

    Bfast
    Whole Wheat Toast with Natural Peanut Butter
    Glass of OJ

    Lunch
    Whole Wheat Chicken Salad Sandwich
    Water

    Snack
    Low Fat Yogurt

    Dinner
    1/2 Chicken Breast
    1/2 cup Boiled Broccoli
    1/2 cup Cooked Pasta
    Glass of 2% Milk


    I did have a few questions about my diet... I started off at about 1200 calories and averaged about 170 grams of carbs a day. The 1200 was fine at first, but today I was starving all day. I read around and calculated my calorie needs with the P90x nutrition guide. I found out I should be getting about 1500. I also read I should be getting about 180 grams of carbs a day, but I'm not sure if that is too much. I understand the simple and complex carbs, but how much of each is desirable and healthy? And is 1500 calories a good limit for a female my size?? (5'4", 123 lbs) I want to be getting enough but definitely not too much. ANY help is much appreciated! Thanks!!!
