First, I wont let guilt get to me this time and stop my journal. Previously I would feel guilty because people would read my journal and I barely have time to write in it much less visit other peoples. This caused alot of guilt so I just stopped writing in my journal. Anyways, I will tell you right now that I am sorry if I dont get into your journal to make any comments if you happen to say something in mine. If time permits, I will try, but work is pretty hectic so no promises.

Now for some stats:
5' 11" tall
Roughly between 14 and 16% bf (currently bulking)

****All measurements taken cold at least 12 hours after last workout****
10/20/06
Weight 254 pds.
Neck 18"
Chest 51"
Waist 36"
Thigh 29.5"
Calf 18.25"
Bicep 18"
Forearm 14.25" With arm straight and forearm flexed.


Current supps:
Amino Acids
Creatine
Fish Oil
Protein bars on occasion

Cardio = 15 minutes elliptical Monday--> Friday + 10 minutes stair climber on gym days.

Meals:
A whole lot of food. Pretty clean but with 2 kids sometimes my evening meals can get a little off track.

I will use this post to update stats, supps, food, etc as my journal grows.


I really started back full time at the beginning of October. Prior to that I was still going but not as often as I should have been. So I am just going to start my journal with October information.

Thanks,
Chris

Attaching some old pics just to have them here.

Thanks Sidior and CoCoa.

I just got back from "vacation". I was only on vacation from work. I was out at our farm doing some work with the cattle, fence repairs, and built a firepit out of river rock and stone. Even though I didnt go to the gym, I did get alot of exercise since I had 1 ton of river rock and 2 tons of landscape stone and trim to move from trailer to firepit. It was nice to be away from work.


Still holding steady at 251 pds.
