Today I worked on my bodyweight routine and it is supposed to be helping my stabilizers. It is a pretty tough workout even without the weights! I did 3 circuits today which was exhausting.
I was thinking about how I've stabilized myself the past month. My nutritional experiment taught me that I can do anything where food is concerned. When I'm tempted I just remind myself that I can get through it because I've done it before. That is a stabilizing force and one that will help me cruise through to Level 4 eating. Right now I'm about Level 3.5.
I'm getting excited that my bulk is fast approaching. It will be great to get that going since I've never done it before. I am still working on building up to the caloric level I'm going to need. I am going to be eating tons of chicken and tuna!

Today's workout was all bodyweight. I really enjoyed it today. I did 3 full circuits. The bodyweight rows are awesome and the sets of 25 pullups are incredible for the back. I can already notice a difference in my core when I do the planks. I am seeing good results with this program so far. This week and next are the final stages of the UDT and then I'm on to the body building plan and bulking up!

Thought for the Day:
Stick to your plan long term. Jumping from one thing to another is not only frustrating but counterproductive.
Question of the Day:
Why don't most of you ever answer the question of the day? Comment this post to answer the question (if you dare).
Until tomorrow…GET BACK TO LIFTING!
