Since I’m back into training after a year off. I’ve been encouraged to keep a log for “infotainment” purposes.
A Brief Intro:
The beginning of 2006 I was weighing in at 230lbs and just competed in my first strongman meet. I was training at LA fitness and it just wasn’t cutting it. No chalk and the top 40 on the radio was demotivating me. So being so serious at lifing and achieving my goals, i built a better gym.
Long story short, it took a year to build the business and the gym all done from the ground up. The whole time i wasn't makeing any income but working alot. So my training suffered. Cut to 2007, the gym is up and running and i'm roughly 185lbs. So it's time to start training again. My diet is still lacking, it's going up in cals but right now i'm eating roughly 1800 cals a day. When i get more money i'll eat more. So here we go. The template i'm using is a modified one from Christian Thibaudeau.
Diet for the day: 1 can tuna, 3eggs, 1/2 cup oatmeal with skim milk and 2tbsp peanut butter and a (free)rockstar.

Take 5mins to mop up after King(the gym mascot) decides to perform a “running while peeing manuever” and leaves a 20ft river of pee next to the office.
