Hey Syd! My legs felt pretty tight and it was very hard to walk in a straight line when I was done. I didn't go as heavy as I could. I need to save some strength to sprint at the track today!

I weighed myself this morning. I'm at 121 lbs now. I thought I would be lower like around 119. I'm taking my bf again the start of next week. Hopefully it should be almost 1% lower, assuming I don't go overboard on the buffett this weekend! But I've been eating so clean over the past month, so maybe a tad bit of junk food will rev up my metabolism. Some days I can fit in 10 meals, some days only 6.

I'm seeing only slightly more definition in my arms but they are definitely feeling very tight. Still not where I want to be yet. I want those ripped 10 inch guns! An overweight co-worker grabbed my unflexed arm the other day and his exact words were "OH...MY...GOD! THAT IS SO SEXY!"
So I must be getting somewhere even though I don't see much change in the mirror yet.

Definitely! We're always the last ones to see any changes 'cause we see ourselves everyday. I always take progress pics once every two weeks to track changes to see if I'm on track. You may want to try that, it definitely helps. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I'm off for 3 days and I'm really looking forward to it.

I haven't posted in awhile. I'll have new photos up this Friday. I'm right on schedule.
In the next few months, I'll be attempting to break my records in the squat, SLDL, bench and leg press. And doing many, many more pull-ups than any 1 person should be doing! Even while on my cut, I managed to get 185 on the squat twice. I almost got stuck in the hole because some idiot wanted to talk to my husband while he was spotting me. Some people need to learn gym etiquette. I was so mad.
Oh, and I will be video taping these!
