    10/27/2009 Weight: 181.0lbs
    Change: -0.5lbs

    Journal: slight soreness at bis, tris and abs. Most sore at lats and traps. Probably because I haven't worked out my lats and traps in a while. Side note: I haven't done a back workout day in a while. I might do that tonight since I spent all my time doing chest, arms, frontal muscles yesterday. I have to also make it a point to get a BMI caliper and a tape measure so I can take some base measurements.

    Food:
    apple cider vinegar (9:00am)
    spinach bagel with peanut butter (10:20am)
    grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato on ww wrap (1:00pm)


    Workout:

    Are you taking any supplements? Multi Vitamins? Creatine? Nitor or another thermogenic?

    I see you are taking some apple cider vinegar and I wanted to let you know that I did a few tablespoons a day for 2 months and didnt find it helped me.

    I'm taking Isopure Zero Protein (50g per serving of protein).

    I've been taking less of the ACV because it tastes like hell, but my cousin swears by it so I'm going to give it another couple of weeks. Personally, water is so much better.

    Whats up man? Good to see you keeping things in check, but Id probably make sure to be doing squats and deadlifts in addition to the upper body stuff.

    Squats, I've been avoiding bc of a slight knee injury. As for deadlifts, you're right, I have no excuse. I should bust some of those out tonight, as well as some lat pulls, rows, and start doing leg presses again.

    If you know of a knee friendly way to do squats, i'm all ears.

    My food intake has been all over the place lately, some really good days and then other really bad days. I need to keep it under control.

    11/22/09:

    Journal: Was away with the gf to a friends house in VA. Wasn't planning on going to the gym but was offered a visitors pass, so I went:

    Workout:
    135lbs x 4 bench wide grip
    125lbs x 6 bench wide grip
    115lbs x 6 bench wide grip
    (can't do a single complete pull/chin-up so I had to be spotted)
    3 sets of 4 "assisted" pull ups
    95lbs bar x 6 military press (too heavy, bad posture)
    45lbs bar x 12 military press (raw bar, to get good posture, first time doing this exercise)
    65lbs bar x 8 military press
    35lbs x 6 curls
    30lbs x 6 curls

    My abs for some reason are really sore, I'm assuming its from the pull ups? They're more sore than days where I usually do crunches. Feels great.

    Had a lot of junk food (desserts, sweet teas, etc) since I was on a weekend vacation.

    Goal this week: Get down to 178lbs by Friday (11/27/09)

    Goal for Monday 11/30/09: 177lbs.

    5lbs, 1 week, I'm going to do this.
