Hey guys thanks for your kind words and Birthday wishes. I didnt over do it when we went out for a meal, in the past a cheat meal turned into a cheat day.
I have a bit more focus on what i want now so i enjoyed a nice meal and dessert and that was it, i bloody enjoyed it and back on it as normal today.

I got this vision now and i really want to be on stage competing!!

What was great about my day?

I got up even earlier than I planned and hit the gym early.
Gym was quiet and perfect for me to get on with my workout.
My pre workout, mindset and focus made me lift so well today.
I ate all of my prepared MASS MACHINE MEALS on time.
I drank plenty of water.
Awesome Shoulders and Triceps workout.
I had plenty of sleep.
All round great feel about today!!

What about my day could I improve to make things EVEN BETTER?

Listen to Skips Podcasts to keep my focus.
Remember this day for when I think about getting up late or having a lie in, I feel so much better when I get up and get on with my day. I need a daily plan and I need to stick to it.

What can I do to make things more enjoyable?

Read other peoples threads and comment on them to encourage them.
Set small goals for each workout as it feels great when I achieve them.
Smile!! Enjoy this experience as there is a great body at the end of the journey.


Intensity Level
9 /10

Why?
I gave it my all but could not get more out of shoulder press, so really it could be a ten because I tried my best and had nothing left, but I needed that extra rep in my mind to complete the day on 10/10.

3rd January 27, 2012

Legs

10 mins warm up elliptical trainer

Started with 5 – 10 mins of Active Leg stretches

Leg Extension:
70 x 12lbs, 110 x 10lbs, (9 x 150lbs, 6 x 150lbs)
This machine has been broken for a few weeks, so happy when I saw it had been fixed. My leg strength has definitely improved as I am lifting more than I have ever done.

45 Leg Press:
12 x 110lbs, 10 x 160lbs, (9 x 250lbs, 4 x 250lbs)
This is a fairly new exercise for me so I started off light to gauge where I should be, every week I am adding extra weight it feels amazing. Go up to 270lbs!!!

Squats:
12 x 0lbs, 10 x 20lbs, (7 x 50lbs, 5 x 50lbs)
My legs are pretty fatigued by this point so even though this looks light it felt like twice as much or more, excellent technique. Get another rep at least before moving up.

Stiff Leg Deadlift Olympic Bar:
12 x 50lbs, (6 x 110lbs, 4 x 110lbs)
Took this weight up today and it felt great, think I can get more out next week, certainly felt it in my hamstrings.

Calf Extension:
12 x 75lbs, (Rest, pause – 11 x 120lbs, 9 x 120lbs 7 x 120lbs)
This felt awesome too, my calves were burning and I just kept pushing. Got some funny looks, think it was the strange faces and noises I was making, but I don’t care I am a MASS MACHINE and I will do what it takes.

Seated Calf Press:
10 x 90lbs, (9 x 140lbs, 6 x 140lbs)
I could barely walk after last exercise and it showed in this one, I was one short on last weeks but managed more in my second set.
Calves were finished after this!!

Stretches:
Leg stretches, Pilates exercises

Start: 10.55AM
Finish: 12.55PM
Time: 1 Hour

Notes:
Feeling awesome in the gym, just need to work on concentration and focus. Use some positive affirmations and repeat to myself. I did feel more confident in the gym and my posture is improving because of this.

Gym was quiet and perfect for me to get on with my workout.
I ate all of my prepared MASS MACHINE MEALS on time.
I drank plenty of water.
Awesome Legs workout.
I had plenty of sleep.
I didn’t wear iPod in gym and I felt more in control and less distracted, will do this in future.

What about my day could I improve to make things EVEN BETTER?

Listen to Skips Podcasts to keep my focus.
Remember this day for when I think about getting up late or having a lie in, I feel so much better when I get up and get on with my day. I need a daily plan and I need to stick to it.
Change shifts at work! My hours change all the time, so last night I got home at 1.30am which makes me go gym slightly later, meals later etc.

What can I do to make things more enjoyable?

Read other peoples threads and comment on them to encourage them.
Set small goals for each workout as it feels great when I achieve them.
Smile!! Enjoy this experience as there is a great body at the end of the journey.


Intensity Level
8 /10

Why?
I tried hard on everything but I felt like my mind was slightly switched off because I had a late night at work. I don’t deserve a 10 because my mental focus was lacking. On paper I set new personal records and it was a great workout.

How can I prevent this happening again?
Explore opportunities at work for working more regular hours, not sure if this is possible because I work in a kitchen and I cook until there are no more customers. Quite an unpredictable job.

What was great about my day?

Today is a rest day for me, no workout or cardio.
I ate all of my prepared Meals.
I drank plenty of water.
I had plenty of sleep.

What about my day could I improve to make things EVEN BETTER?

Listen to Skips Podcasts to keep my focus.
Print off my daily disciplines and score it everyday.
Change shifts at work! My hours change all the time, so last night I got home at 2.30am.

What can I do to make things more enjoyable?

Achieve greater results in the gym and keep pushing myself to higher levels.
Read other peoples threads and comment on them to encourage them.
Set small goals for each workout as it feels great when I achieve them.
Smile!! Enjoy this experience as there is a great body at the end of the journey.


Intensity Level
10 /10

Why?
I give myself 10/10 for having a rest today, I am doing a great job of it, lol.
