Ok so I posted in the intro section a couple days ago and I'm finally getting my journal started! Not sure how the contest works but I've been injured the last month and just had surgery on my foot so I haven't been working out the last couple of weeks. I'm finally able to at least do upper body and ab workouts and actually have something to journal
