I have never kept a log for very long, but I find I am in need of a place to keep track of things.
Some of you have seen my post here and there but a little info: 54 yrs old, 195 lbs. Spent a long time in the body building side of things. Did my last show this past June, and promised the wife no more. The contest diet, turns my mildly grumpy self, into a full blown butthead.
I've turned to powerlifting and am having a blast. Did 2 meets this past November and met the infamous Maurader Meat...it's always good when guys that strong are nice guys.
In the process of training for a meet mid-March. Normal stuff, except for a little twist. I'm in the middle of being tested, to donate a kidney to a friend. I spent all day yesterday at UNC hospital, and so far all things are a go.
The one thing I am worried about...time off from lifting. Atleast 3 months. So the plan is, hard training, compete in March, then go on the shelf for awhile....I worry about getting back to where I'm at now. If I was younger wouldnt think twice about it.
A little long winded, this is why I needed to write it down. I have friends, but very few who understand why I love lifting.
