Once again I have gone on hiatus for about a week. I have been experiencing some sort of GI track bug which was causing my body to reject food in a wide variety of ways. This would not be condusive to deadlifting or squatting. In fact, walking around was annoying enough to me, nevermind hoisting iron all around the gym.
In any case, I am back again. I now have about 3 weeks to get ‘Swole in a Month’. Candlebox tickets have been purchased for the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom, and I must prepare myself to be shirtless for the better part of 3-4 hours.
I am starting to feel like this guy. Do you know who I’m talking about? The Slacker is that guy that you’ve seen at the gym for the last year or two, who never seems to get any bigger, stronger, or leaner. He’s spinning his wheels, slacking off for a week here and there, taking a month off when life gets busy, or he just goes home at night and decides to stay home and drink a beer rather then coming in for some overhead presses. This is the guy I feel like right now. I am not doing what it’s going to take to get in shape. I am Mr. Lazy American.
Yesterday I got back in the gym for my first workout in 6 days aside from some fooing around at home. It was not a bad workout, but definitely not spectacular. If nothing else, I am definitely maintaining. =(
You think my legs show some definition? HAHAHAHA There is no definition on my body right now, I will be the first to admit it.
When you call me a slacker, it is an understatement. Not so much because I am lazy, but more so because I literally can’t get into the gym. However, the tide is changing. I am healthy and I have quit my job! There will be massive progress before the summer is over, trust me on this.
Its been 4 days since your ‘poor sick Steve’ post. Have you done for us lately, Slacker?
I saw your May 12 pictures. Definitely better than me, but as you suggest, there’s nothing there to gawk at, although your legs show some definition. Keep going. I want to see some progress.
