    GrumpyTX Journal

    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

    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.
