Had something wrong with my throat the last few days, and have wanted to avoid straining, because I think it might kind of make it worse. So I just did cardio today:

bike 60 minutes

martial arts few minutes - held each leg out for 20 seconds, new personal best.

Umm been forgetting to update this. I have been working out though. Been doing a lot of pullups, and the regular stuff at gym. Now doing pullups in sets of 3, doing over 30 a day total, going well! Also a bit of bench press at home too.

Thanks to Daywalkers tasty suggestion, I am now up to doing 6 chinups in a set bizznatch. I hope to be back up to 10 soon, presumably it won't take long, especially as I used to be able to do that.

Oh you guys better be freakin ready for my new ninja costume after Christmas

okay, I totally ate crap on Christmas day and today, I think it was heavy comfort eating because I feel so miserable at this time of year, and even worse with what's been happening in my family. And now I feel bad physically from eating this crap, why did i even do it... Anyway, that's enough shitty food for me, tomorrow it's back to kale and broc and lots of water.

Yo, well yesterday I did 7 pullups. I really wanted to do 8 but couldn't. I am happy with 7 though, only 3 away from my target. I keep doing small sets of 3 or 4 now several times during the day.

Today I went back to the gym, haven't been for over a week, although I have been doing some training at home.

bike 20 minutes

chest fly machine
can't remember exactly but I did 6 sets like 12,12,12,10,8,8 the last one was 110lbs

chest press machine
again, not sure about the weight >_< but did 3 sets of 10

dumbell press
17.5kg in each hand, x10 this felt REALLY EASY, i was surprised, felt like I was just chucking them around, so I went straight to;
22.5kg x 8
25kg x 5

good pump from that

hammer curls 12.5kg each hand x10
bicep curls 7.5kg each hand x8

martial arts for a good while

ab crunches 15,12,15,15

bike 10 minutes

felt really good afterwards, the best I have felt for a long time, really cleared my head. Then I got home, ate steamed kale, broccoli, sweet potato, some fried onions and mushrooms, and then 4 bananas. FOUR

Been really ill the last few days, lost my voice, got some kind of flu / cold thing. I am really frustrated because I want to train, but feeling this way there is no point, i'd just make myself more ill. But once I recover, I'll be kicking you in the balls like it's 2007
