View Full Version : For lack of a better name, TGod's journal

03-02-2007, 06:02 PM
Well guys, I thought that keeping this journal would help me stay and track and keep me from slacking off like I sometimes do. I also am hoping that the wealth of knowledge, inspiration, and encouragement on this forum will continue to help me to keep with my goals for the duration.

I currently am 5'10, 187lbs (turns out my house scale is crap, so all my weights before were wrong, go figure) and cutting :shoot: :burger: down to hopefully somewhere between 12-13% from about 20-23%. I switched over to BGB on monday, February 26th, 2007. I'll go ahead and post my workouts for this past week in different posts and let you guys comment/criticize as you see fit.
