Chest & Abs (in pm w/ cardio)

Bench Press:

Time to increase my inc db presses ...

Still feeling *really* worn out ... I've decided to up my calories to see if it makes a difference. The mirror tells me I've lost a bit of weight, so there is progress being made.

My bf's friend's cat is pregnant ... and I get a kitty! Hooray! Guess she's almost ready to pop. Maybe if I ask nicely enough, Henk will squeeze his cat so I can get a little kitty sooner? [img]/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img][img]/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] I luvs the kitties ...

Been a while since I've updated ... and I haven't exactly been good. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] I had an intimate moment with some peanut M&M's on the weekend ... ahem, actually *several* intimate moments. I ate the whole **** bag. Verdomme!! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

I also had a lovely chat with my brother (he's 6 weeks out from his first bodybuilding competition). I'm really proud of him for sticking to his diet (and a wee bit envious). But it's made me realize that diet and exercise are a daily committment, and I've been rather slack. Time to kick my butt into gear 'cause bikini season is a few short months away (****, I'm vain! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] )

Hello Chita, about the trainer laughing, don't take it to heart. As a trainer, I'd laugh too, but more for the fact that someon has to weigh it to know how much it weighs and it's not printed on the bar for everyone to see. But then, someone asked me if our scale was off, and I told him I hadn't had any complaints, and later I find our 50lb dumbbell actually weighs 51...


Congrats on the soon-to-be kitty!

Think your brother would let you train with him a couple times?
