Sorry for the long post, and thank you to those who read this. When I was going through puberty, I became quite the chub, and its only in the last 3 years that I really started going to the gym to fix it. 3 years later, I go to the gym twice a week and have changed my eating habits substantially. I've gone down 3 pant sizes (I'm now a 31/32 waist, 175 lbs and 6'1). For all intents and purposes, I'm pretty slim, and was lanky for a while but the muscles finally started to grow in. My problem is that I still have one last remnant of my chub days. My abs. Its not dramatic, but I have ever so slight love handles near my lower back and a tiny bit of fat on my lower abs (enough so tah there's not a straight line from my chest to my groin). As I've remained this way for months, even though I go to the gym twice a week, I've come to the conclusion that I need to workout more on my own time at home every night. So for the last week, I've set an hour aside to do a variety of exercises (and so far have kept to it, which is a first seeing as I've tried before so I'm already happy about that): -50 push ups (not ab related but I figure I needed the work) -50 crunches -100 Bicycle crunches -60 leg lifts -30 left lift circles (dont know what to call this, I raise my legs as if doing leg lifts, but then trace circles in the air, clockwise and counter clockwise) -20 side crunches on each side After a week of this, I can definitely feel more muscles underneath the layer of fat, so I know I am building muscle, I'm just curious if I'm doing the right thing to also burn the little fat I have left (seeing as I wont see a six pack until I get rid of the fat). I've also been given and have been taking Muscle Milk Light after these night time work out sessions. I've pretty much eliminated snacking from my diet in the last 3 years, as well as sodas. I try to avoid Fried food as much as possible (I have the occasional MacDonalds once every month or so), and I have a pretty decent protein intake from various meats. One bad thing I've been doing for years is not having breakfast and not sleeping enough, but otherwise I've cut down on my portions at lunch, have a reasonable sized dinner and I drink water and Iced Tea Exclusively. Any thoughts?
