I think splitting my delts and arms workout into two separate days will help.

That just might. I noticed a lot of improvement in my arms awhile back when I did that.

There haven't been huge changes on the scale, but the mirror tells me I'm losing weight. I guess I should be happy that I'm gaining muscle and losing fat ... ooohhhh, I hope I can get back into my favorite jeans soon!

That is fantastic! Remember, it's not what the scale says. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Hi Syd ... yeah, I keep trying to remember that. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] But it doesn't mean I don't have the occasional *gasp* when I step on the scale. My weight is steadily going up so there's been a lot of *gasps* lately. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] [img]/forum/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

I'm not going to update my workouts of late (a gal's got to have a little mystery, right? [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] ), but I have been working on integrating squats back into my legs day. It's not easy. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] My left hip is still much weaker and, as a result, I'm still overcompensating with my right leg. Even the 20kg bar is a challenge ... [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] At least it's a new goal ...

So if I'm feeling ambitious I'll update todays workout ... if not, stay tuned!

The gym was kinda quiet today ... the bikini bandit and testosterone man were MIA so it wasn't a very entertaining people-watching workout. There were a few other people I recognize but their entertainment value is limited. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

My diet is being majorly overhauled ... my IBS is acting up something fierce. My poor tummy, talk about bloat! I've even gone so far as to change my brand of protein. Now I'm only taking protein immediately after my workouts. It is helping a little bit with my energy levels but I still feel really drained.

Just finished an hour of low-intensity cardio. My bf told me tonight that my legs are improving ... he also thinks they look bigger. Guess that weight gain **is** muscle stuck to my booty and thighs! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] Just gotta lose the residual chub ...

Hmmmm ... forgot to do my Rev. flyes [img]/forum/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]. Energy levels pretty good for this workout, but still not back to 100%.

I've read about people yakking on their cell-phones in other journals, and I'm disappointed to report that breed of gym rats is multiplying quickly in my gym. It's a bit frustrating when you're waiting for DB's and some dude gets a call.

Almost time to move up in the DB presses, methinks. I'll need a spotter for sure ...
