It was a tough workout today felt drained i had been at a course all weekend last nigh i came home with a major headache think it was from info overload, keep on keeping on took a photo after my mass machine cardio session today it was motivation for not giving up !!

Watched the video skip posted with Anthony Robbins was excellent stuff to watch my breakthrough is just realising i can be who ever i want to be and i will, it was been an outstanding 6 months and i am just glad i entered and Skip delivered what he said his all and i will always be a supporter of Mass machine Nutiriton & Training!!

Also saving up to get skips audio seminars and ebooks so i can learn more and more !!

Hey pphelps, i just wanted to give you a big thank you for all the support you have given me over the last 6 months during our bulking and cutting challenge. I think we make a great team as we keep each other going through the tough times (cutting calories) and enjoy the good times (complimenting each others physiques & treat meals).
you are awesome!!

Went out for our monthly cheat meal and to celebrate the end of the six month challenge meal was great Lebanese but I found a hair in the food!! So took the shine of it but the vegan cherry ice cream and vegan banana bread from whole foods made up for it!!
This week is week off from the gym and I have to hit the books for my personal trainer course

What was great about my day? This is for the past two days

- Scheduled week off from the gym
- Had loads of fun with Mattpb
- Having a variety of veg for my tea , mushrooms tasted awesome lol
- No Gym- so been studying 5am until 7am before work
- Watched a tony robbins vid before work
- Set some new goals for the gym

What about my day could I improve to make things EVEN BETTER?

- Not much it has been fun the past few days

What can I do to make things more enjoyable?

So from monday will be another challenge for me and mattpb, its 12 weeks until some family come to see us in Canada it will be two years since we have seen anyone from home so we want to make sure we look our best ever!!

Mass machine training routine #3 from Monday food will pretty much be whats above apart from meal 6 will revert back to brocolli and green beans its easier than chopping several different veg the change this week has been nice
