Muscles were still sore from the last chest workout so i'll have to wait till tomorrow to do them again.

Practiced Muay Thai again today and got in 1 more round then last time.Still grueling though.

Will start eating disciplined now also.

fuck i did not feel good today.

i woke up sweating even though it was really cold and went to work without enough sleep and was feeling like a zombie.the top of my throat hurts for some reason too.

even now my body is over heated when its a cold winter night.i hope i feel better tomorrow.

i hope its not an allergy to a food i ate.i don't think i have any allergies so i doubt it.

worst thing is i was on a roll with training and already making strength gains after just 7days training.

feels bad man

Don't worry and don't let that make you give up your entire plan to work out regularly. I think those things happen because we tend to overtrain in the beginning, when we are still weak. And if you're sick, lay down, get over it, miss few work outs and then come back and start with lighter intensity, till you feel really better. That happened to me too, when I decided to go to gym few months ago. I've just started to be regular in the gym and then flu hit me and made me lay in bed for days... But as soon as I felt better, I was back, working out!
Really, if you're feeling sick, maybe it is a good idea to stay home and miss next workout. You know nothing can stop you, right! TO THE DEATH! :D :D :D

I trained last night but i'm still sick lol

I couldn't wait any more than a week so i lifted but kept it as the same weight as the last leg, bicep and abs training last time.

Should be 100% by the weekend.

I'll just practice muay thai today to keep my technique getting better.

I really want to try some 1 rep max lifts soon.
