Felt pretty good today, may have rushed a little bit. Wanted to maximize my time at home this afternoon relaxing. Came home and ate a handful of cranberries raw, which were so tasty! Trying really hard not to think about drinking beers tonight, but maybe I'll have a couple. Trying harder not to think about dessert, or fries, or chips, or burritos full of delicious seitan, or any of the shit that I want but continuously work off every week. It's not easy, but I'm sure you already knew this. Really wish I had my own gym at home where I could do the workout above. Getting sick of the ridiculous attitude I see at my gym. It has what I suspect to be a "prison yard" feel to it; mainly because most of the dudes there look like they've served some time. Had a good ending to the work week, which was very welcome. Thinking about applying to this job, but not really sure I am ready to leave my current position. Oh well, better get out and enjoy what is left of our fall weather; snow predicted for Monday...
Final thought.... Why is it, do you suspect, that I am capable of doing decline bench at the same weight as a regular (flat) bench press, with greater ease than the latter? Stronger upper pecs? Seems like my flat bench weight takes forever to increase in load. Frustrating.
See you Monday.
