Crap session today, about 15 minutes in I wasnt feeling it at all. Was a combo of a bunch of things I think.
1/ Hadnt eaten much that day (was late to work so couldnt get to supermarket) so was hungry going into gym
2/ Wellington got hit with a good size earthquake 30 mins before I got there so was thinking about that alot (mind wasnt on the job)
3/ Minimal sleep previous night

So a recipe for disaster, I did some Arnold presses, bench press and elbow rehab though so all was not lost!

Happy Ive stayed over 150lb thus far, hopefully I thats some lower resistance and I dont drop below that again
Just do it.

I hate days like these - but doesn't sound like all was wasted. Love me some Arnold presses. You ever try them standing?

Last day of slack September....didn't go to the gym at all (not at all since my last post).

So its clear that I need to be posting here for my motivation.

Was still active in September biking everywhere but my strength will have definitely decreased and am slightly squishier.

Did go camping one weekend, and we biked with tents etc on the bikes to the destination. That was great fun. Round trip was 150km or so, good times.

Not sure of October goals yet, other than, get back in the gym!
Just do it.

JubNZ, you can do it- I also had a slack September and I was feeling the effects...just got back into the gym to shed a few lbs and gain some strength back. You can def get back to crushing it in no time!

When are you back in NZ again? Was good to chat to you on the phone, would be even better if we could catch up face to face.

If I have a spare day it would be pretty cool to fly up and meet you, could do some training, eat and chew the fat.

Hey mate,

Initially was planning to be just before Christmas, but I realised the direction needed to be more precise, so realistically I am hoping for early Feb. (will send you a PM later on today)
