Today is New Year's Eve and I rang in the New Year on New York time. I am not a person who stays up late because my body just decides it is time to go to sleep and so I go to sleep. It is the result of getting up early for the gym each day.
Today was a great day. First, it was an all protein day for Metabolic Surge and that's always tough to fill up with enough calories, but I managed to eat nothing but protein and drink nothing but plain water all day.
My workout today was amazing. Today called for me to do 3 sets at 15 reps and so I decided to push up the weight about 5 pounds on each exercise. When I was done with the workout I was exhausted. See the results below in the accountability log for today. I began to feel the workout in my body about 3 hours later. My entire body is aching from the deadlifts. I was shaking when I was done with them.
I do not make resolutions. Instead, I am going to make a guarantee. I guarantee that I will end 2008 as a lean, mean, fat burning machine. There, I've said it and now it is here for to push me forward all year long!

Form was essential on these lifts. I also needed to use straps for the first time on my deadlifts. I wanted to be sure I could lift on all sets. While I was short on the scheduled repetitions, the deadlifts kicked my butt. I could not have done another rep if my life depended upon it.
I hope you all have/had a Happy New Year!
