Day 2 of 10


I did everything I was supposed to do yesterday including going out for a run in the evening. I ended up 31 calories over my target, but I’m not stressing that because it’s 31 calories and because I’m just trying to log at this point.

Today I am proving to myself that it does not in fact kill me to get up at 6:00 am. I did hit snooze for a few minutes, but got myself out of bed by 6:07, had some breakfast (yay me!) and headed out to the gym.

The first thing I did was make everything 4 sets. This meant I could turn the whole thing into one “super-set”. I also swapped out the tricep kickback (which I hear does not so much) for a body weight tricep dip with a bench. Dumpted the dumbells and grabbed a 40 lb bar w
