I want food! 🙂

Went on a date with the Mrs. last night and had a cheat meal — I haven’t had one of those in ages and it felt good for the psyche. Got a good night sleep too. So I hit the gym feeling pretty awesome. Well almost… I’m up 2 lb since yesterday due to the meal. Ha ha! I reckon it’ll be gone quickly, no big deal. While my goal was 223 for Sunday, if I’m 224 I’ll be alright with that because I really needed that cheat meal.

The gym was fine. Still 50% “deload”, but looking forward to getting back to normal next week. Nothing really to say other than I was happy to hit 7 chin-ups!

I did drop the shrug weight down. I want to ensure my form is good and I have a little more TUT as I lower the weight.

One thing that hit me? RP posted a before/after client picture the other day. The before looked very similar to how I look now, and the after looked awesome. It was a 20 lb difference, but given the guy’s musculature and weight I reckon he was shorter than me. So 20 more for me? Maybe 25 or 30? I can’t say for sure, but I can say in 20 (which is my new target: 205) things should be looking pretty damn awesome. Motivation levels are really ramped up. 🙂
