You Just had to be with them.
If they look at you, your heart stops.
If you feel their breath on your skin, you just ache.

Hey Robert,
Thanks for stopping by...
I'll be in the USA in June Next year, Woohooo... so we will have to organise a training session
I might not be suddenly jumping 30lbs in weight, I just hope my journal illustrates that to maintain strength and muscle mass it is all about consistency and effort!
Slowly chipping away at the bodyfat levels, whilst maintaining muscle, I'll post some pics soon.

Saturday
No Training

Sunday - Flew to another State for an action - everything went pear shaped, it was a total stuff up, bad intelligence, bad recon, argghhh such a waste, it had the potential to achieve so much

Monday - Flew back home, after delays and mechanical problems etc
