Thanks! It's really comfortable too. One more day of rest for me before I get back into it. I need to rotate upper/lower body more so I don't take 2 days off in a row.

Did a short jog today followed by an upper body dumbbell workout. I didn't write down the exact weights and reps, it's not my goal. As long as I am consistently working my body out and look good in my birthday suit then I'm happy. And I am happy to say that today was the most intense workout all year. The Vega products lit a fire under my ass and the burn feels great.

Just for loose record keeping, I did bicep curls 25lb three sets of 8 to 10, tricep three sets of about 10 at 15lb.

I tried this tri-chest routine that was really hard, 10 pushups ( hands in a fist, so lifting on knuckles ), then immediately flop over and do butterflies, and then without stopping finish it off with chest press. The first set I did 25lb, then the second I had to downgrade to 20, by the time I got to the third set I could barely do 1 pushup, but still managed 10 butterflies at 20lb, and about 5 chest presses.

Also did shoulder shrugs three sets of 10 with 45lb dumbbells, the third set was closer to 6 or 8, my grip was weakened by then lol. Also did three sets of lawnmower ( I don't know the proper term for this, deltoid raise or something ) 10 @ 30lb... uh shoulder press at 25lb, third set was a struggle and only did about 4 or 5.

Bunch of situps, crunches, jack knife situps, and left lifts... and miscellaneous other weight lifting. Tommorrow I'll focus on lower body.

Thanks goes to you guys for sending them my way! They really are awesome products.

I want to leave a little bit of happy daily thoughts or motivational quotes in this journal. Today is rife with struggle so to start it off with something I read that perked me up.

"Learn to enjoy the struggle. Our most memorable goals we achieve in our lives are always extra special because of the many hardships we had to endure before succeeding. Those memories will be some of your fondest when you're successful. So take sometime to live in the moment and enjoy the struggle before achieving bigger and better things. " - Bobby Chui

It's Monday, the start of a new week! More Bobby Chui positivity:

"Never give up just because you don't think you're good enough. We've all had our doubts in life. Successful people do not give up easily. We must prepare and prepare again, try your very hardest and then about 50% more that you didn't know you had consistently, then keep going twice as long as you ever thought you would or could. Look for more knowledge and try again."

OK today I still have dumbbells, didn't want to strain my elbows too much as my upper body is really sore. Focused on lighter weights and proper form. I also have no idea what I'm doing, but thanks to youtube I was able to find out how to do these properly :lol:

stretched and warmed up for 5 or 10 mins. It's cold and rainy so no jogging.

squats: 40lb x 12, 50lb x 8, 60lb x 6
straight legged deadlift: 40lb x 12, 50lb x 8, 60lb x 6
calf raise: 40lb x 12, 50lb x 8, 60lb x 6
leg lifts: 20, 10

Good job on your taxes. I admire anyone who can do that on their own. :)

I use Turbotax online, it's super easy.

Did my upper body routine today, roughly the same as last week, with more situps.

I also learned how to tie my hair in a ponytail all by myself. Now I don't have to harass Mrs. Adam to do it haha.
