    Good session skinny. I say the Deadlift goal is very possible. Just keep eating and have confidence when pulling that crap! Just do it!

    Thanks for dropping by, I don't really respond to the training journals either (when I got something to say, 3 other people had already said it)... I read some journals from time to time though.

    This is what my typical average day would look like on days I work out:

    2:00 p.m. [ Wake up ] - Drink a Protein Shake
    3:00 p.m. [ Breakfast ]
    6:00 p.m. [ Lunch ]
    7:30 p.m. [ Drink pre-workout water; this ain't no shake but just water+dextrose+taurine. ] - Most of the time I drink coffee before.

    8:00 p.m. [ Work out ]
    10:00 p.m. [ Post Workout Shake+Creatine+Taurine. ]
    11 p.m. [ Eat food ]

    ...Stay up the rest of the night and eat more food if I feel like it.
