In the news....

NH Supreme Court: homeschooled girl must go to public school against mom’s wishes

However, in the original order issued in July 2009, Judge Lucinda V. Sadler reasoned that the girl’s “vigorous defense of her religious beliefs to [her] counselor suggests strongly that she has not had the opportunity to seriously consider any other point of view.”

Really, or maybe she has considered other points of view and simply has a strong faith in her beliefs? Something that agnostics and psuedo-Christians can't understand for some reason.

I'd love to see a Republican try this and not get lambasted.

Ah yes, and in the public school system she will be afforded the opportunity to consider an uncapped wealth of viewpoints such as the fact of evolution . . . evolution . . . evolution . . . Evolution and oh yes let’s not forget, EVOLUTION. Shame on that little girl for being ignorant enough to believe that she has a divine Creator.

Oh, and what’s the point of having beliefs if you don’t defend them?

My thoughts exactly.

Thanks!

Weight is moving along nicely, although, it does play head games with you. Some days I feel very lean, other days I feel bloated and fat. Bulking sucks in that respect. Luckily, the lean days remind me that I am not fat, as long as I keep plugging away slowly I believe I can get up to around 210 without becoming a whale.

That's what can happen when parents can't agree on a simple thing such as education. You would be amazed at the irresponsibility of some parents divorced/seperated when it comes to their children's best interests. If the parents agreed one way or the other this would not be an issue.

The mother should appeal the decision.

Eliminated assistance work since I am getting sore in my tendons on my chest and bicep. Next week is the last of this block, might deload after that and try to dissipate some of this residual tenderness.

271 days to transform

Monday

AM

Chinup
BW+7.5x10, 10, 8, 8, 6, 6

1 Arm Pullover
24.5x10, 3 sets

1 - Arm Stiff Arm Lat Pulldown
22.5x10, 3 sets - increase weight

T-Bar
157.5x10, 4 sets - increase weight

DB Row
54.5x10, 4 sets - increase weight

Close Grip Pulldown
100x10, 4 sets

Band Stiff Arm Lat Pulldowns and Rows

Lunch

DB CG Neutral Press
73x10, 4 sets - increase weight

It was BEAUTIFUL outside today, so I dusted off the ol' tire and went to work.

Tire Chest Press x many sets, working up to 65 lb
Tire Back Row x many sets, working up to 90 lb
Tire Bicep Curl, 1 set with 50 lb
Tire Tricep Extension, 1 set with 25 lb

Last year, when I was dragging my tire, many people would stop their cars and ask, "What are you training for?" I didn't have an answer, except for wanting to be the best version of me possible.

This year, I can tell them that a great transformation is in the process, to culminate April 2012 at the NANBF Natural Pittburgh.

Stay tuned to the transformation.

Diet Update

Bodyweight average this week 182.4, down 0.2 lbs.

I am OK with this, I was gaining pretty fast (goal was 0.75 per week, I was hitting more like 1.0) and I don't want to get fat. Actual target at 12 weeks into bulk is 12 x 0.75 = 9 lb, starting at 172.2 + 9 = 181.2. So I am still ahead of target. I will keep macros the same and see what happens. I will accept one more week of weighing in light before I adjust macros.

In other news....

The budget lets New York Democratic Governor Cuomo squeeze $450 million in concessions from unions. If they balk, he may sack 10,000 government workers

What would they say if Wisconsin Governor Walker tried this?

Related to the recent Koran burning....

Guest on MSNBC says Koran is the Word of God, but the Bible was just written by men

Hmmm, not quite an accurate view of the Bible, Christians believe the Bible to be the Word of God.

Do Christians kill in response to these acts?

U.S. Military burns Bibles

Muslims persecute Christians

Saudi Government destroys Bibles

Wow, for the first time ever, I find myself agreeing with Chris Matthews.

Why Do Muslims Blow Up A Buddha Statue But Kill When Koran Is Burned?
