Day 8

Back in the gym. The back is already sore again. But its good to see improvement (at least a little) almost across the board. Either I'm getting better at getting to failure (ie putting more effort in) or I am getting in better shape, or maybe a little of both! I also took my blood pressure at Safeway after! A hearty 121 / 71 - still great :) so besides the extra reps or extra weight lifted, there is not a whole lot of great positive feed back in terms of body changes or weight loss. I do think I may turn the corner in that area shortly and will continue to have faith in the plan!

  1. So three workouts in and my biceps are approx 1/4" bigger in diameter from 12 3/8" to 12 5/8". Five more workouts to go should hopefully yield another 1/2" or more to break the 13" threashold.
