Bodyweight is still not dropping drastically, but I'm definitely getting leaner here. As much as the bench and incline bench might be going down, the other stuff (isolation arm work and back work) seems to be getting stronger. But this is also what happens when you're doing a movement that you don't specialize in.

It's amazing how much I think about food now. I get excited for my meals the next day the night before. I had a sandwich of cold cut turkey the other day on sprouted grain Ezekiel bread with mustard. It tasted so damn good.

On a side note, it's interesting to notice how people react to your differently when you weight about 30lbs less. I get so many more looks from women these days. Too bad I'm too lazy and busy with training to actually pursue any of this right now, haha. Perhaps I'll rally and join the dating scene again in some limited capacity.




logging 12.5 hours of working out per week,
