Guess I have been off track for a long time now. Haven't really been taking things seriously since I landed this new job. Was having some quiet time last night, and starting to think that the root of most of my problems/stress is because I haven't been in the gym doing what I should be, and I haven't been eating right at all. First few weeks are just going to be to get in the groove... so no calorie counting until I've gotten myself straightened out.

Have been thinking a lot about some Bible scripture that I referred myself to awhile ago, about the body being the Temple of God... and honestly, I haven't been doing my part to keep that Temple in good condition physically or mentally. Self esteem issues, along with a stressful job and poor nutrition is not a good combination.

So let's get started...

Current stats:
Age: 20
Ht: 5'10
Wt: 183
Bf: ~17? Not too flabby.

I'll take measurements in about a week or two when I've swollen up a little bit from using the muscles. Haven't used them in a long time and I would be embarrassed to post what I think it is. ;)

Hit the gym early this morning at 6:00am. Did chest and tris. Took it easy cause I had some stomach pains, but managed to buff out a decent workout for the first time back.

Chest
* Flat DB Press - 70x10,10,8
* Cable Cross - 60x10,10,10
* HS Press - 140x10,8,6

Tris
* Cable Pressdown - 100x12,10,10

I'll probably add 2-3 sets next week on the triceps. Wanted to get a feel for things today, as well as the urge to toss my empty stomach up. We'll see.

Tomorrow Back/Bis lined up.
