Oh lord I've been farting around way too much as of late, from being ill to injury and just being a little unmotivated here and there. Well for the run up to December and up over the new year I'm going to be much harder on myself. Watch this space for updates as I'll be doing them bit by bit.. Now where is my camera..

A lot of my diet isn't planned, so to speak. I was trying to do that but, erg, I hate planned stuff.

I will be juicing a lot of stuff to:

A) Get it into my system quick
B) Need to cut a bit more weight so why not do it at the same time.. Well it's possible
C) I'm lazy.. I can cook really well but since I eat most vegetables meals raw I might as well just blend it.

I will also be taking pea protein isolate and fine oats twice a day.

Following the Stronglifts 5x5 program, it's a bit much to put down here so go take a look at it. It's free.

Well been to the gym today, obviously. I don't think I've grunted so loud in my life, luckily it was nearly empty :D

Also, why are the dumbbell grips always broken?

Not bad, because of it I got through stuff a lot quicker than usual..

However when I got to the curls my arms were dying so I was kinda screaming at them :D

Well there is something going on. I've managed to loose a bit more fat which means some measurements have dropped a little as muscle is slowly replacing fat.

However, my upper arms (flexed) have grown by half an inch! Which I am currently enjoying :D

Gah I hate pull ups. I think any bodyweight exercise is the bane of my time at the gym. However, I'm using 20kg DB's for chest and shoulders so I might up them a bit, or try and stack the bar heavier.

Well back to training proper tomorrow.

Christmas and new year have been a real bitch, seeing family, other half, friends and getting stuck on trains for hours... Luckily I've only put on 5lbs over Christmas. My family aren't really up on the vegan thing so I was mostly eating TVP and so on.

I changed the workout around a bit. Mostly because I was getting tired before I got to kendo. While I felt great at the gym I was too tired after to be any good. So I took Wednesday out for extra rest time.

I do need to loose a little more fat. It's annoying that my stomach (what's left of it) just wont disappear.
