Day 9 – Back & Bis

Hectic meeting schedule
Was able to get some meals cooked in between though
Working out for a third day in a row because I will be unable to visit the gym on Saturday and I’m feeling energetic
Had to move workout to evening
Not a fan of evening workouts / try to stick to am
Had to pass on a social gathering because I just needed the extra rest

Day 8 – Chest & Tris

End of 1st week / lost 7lbs / on track with what I’ve done in the past
Staying focused on my goals and looking forward to mire progress
Great workout / the strongest I’ve felt yet
Busy day /packing meals and heading to meetings
Friends and colleagues are starting to ask questions about my regimen

post

Day 7 – Legs

Most difficult workout yet / low energy; focus, splitting headache, over heated / pushed through a rigorous workout, completed everything I set out too but left feeling a little discouraged
Visited an away gym, unfamiliar environment may have taken me out of ky comfort zone a bit / will have to adapt / luckily this will be a weekly stop for me so that will help
Probably ate too close to workout

post

Day 6 – Off Day

Good energy
Day of prep / shopping / expirement with spices, dishes
Really sore / cqlves, hams could be a problem for tomorrow
First meal out / not really tempted / 8oz steak, plain sweat potato, house salad dry, no cheese or croutons / ate close enough before hand that menu wasn’t tempting

post

Day 5 – Shoulders, Calves and Abs

Energy more consistent throughout the day
Shoulder workout was really grueling / felt great / slowed my pace a little
Not noticing the thermogenic affect as much
Nagging hamstring has me worried about upcoming leg workout
Diet is still going well / only one or two night time cravings / a little salt with my last protein shake helped a lot

post

Day 4 – Back & Bis

Better pace
Rough schedule
Energy level great in the morning
Enthusiastic workouts
Still tired, lacking focus in late afternoon

post

Day 3 – Off Day

Planning / preparing
Catching up on work / program has been taking focus / finding a system to make this sustainable and stay productive

post

Day 2 – Chest & Tris

Really sore / cardio a challenge
Hot as a furnace
Low energy in late afternoon/ lack of focus / too much caffeine?
Trying to stay successful by planning ahead / looking for recipe options
Heavy meetings / prepared meals a must, godsend
Guessing at weights, long time since executing some movements
Current gym will eventually limit workouts / will out grow weight selection quickly

post

Day 1 – Legs

Poor sleep previous night
Excited to get started
Good Energy throughout work out, a little anxious (esp leg press), very warm/good sweat
Eating every meal is tough, just have to push through/focus on the transformation
Energy level faded drastically in the evening, likely due to poor sleep the night before (sleep is important)
Monday nights are a late night, adds extra challenge
No cravings, body temp up all day (outside temp upper 90′s)
