The diet is still going strong. It hasn't been too easy to keep on track. But I have kept to the my promise to my training partner and going strong. The last couple of weeks have been crazy busy at work. We had a potluck and the only thing I could really eat was the green peppers and brocholi off the veggie tray. Brownies seem to be everywhere. But not for me to eat right now.

I have not weighed myself recently but I put on a pair of 36w cargo shorts and they were tight in the thigh but loose in the waist so I went with it.

Yesterday's training


Smith Machine Shoulder presses
After warmup I maxed 195 for 7 solid reps

Machine lateral raises
Maxed at 120lb for some good solid reps

Barbell Shrugs
maxed the day with 405 with some solid and a couple not so solid reps.

We tried doing some shrugs using the standing calf machine but neither one of us were feeling it

Hammer strength standing shrugs
4plts on each side til failure and called it a day.

I also switched out the tunes going to Kings of Leon after the new lady in my life got me turned on to it.

Later today the Big one and I are doing Legs so I am sure it will be something crazy especially since I don't have to work after.
