Well, I'm getting ready to head off to the gym again. And I admit that I have been putting forth some serious effort there. So (at the risk of blowing my own horn), I thought I'd share some news on my progress there, if only to show that I'm not just wasting my time.
First, the good news; most of my measurements look fairly decent.
Biceps: 20 inches.
Shoulders: 60 inches.
Chest: 53 inches.
Thighs: 34 inches.
Calves: 21 inches.
Now, I did the measurements myself, so there might be some inaccuracy. But at 6'5", and given that I'm relatively new to the gym, I'm guessing this isn't too bad.
However, I'm sure you all noticed one measurement I left out. Which leads me to the bad news.
That dratted scale, the bane of my existence at the gym, hasn't budged an inch. According to it, I haven't lost so much as a scrap of weight. Which doesn't do my confidence wonders, believe me.
Finally, the painful. When I was at the gym on Tuesday, I was racking the weights when I accidentally dropped one on my finger. And believe me when I say that, if you drop a 115 pound dumbbell on your finger, it will
Luckily, I didn't break any bones. Skin is a different story, and I have to admit to leaving something of a bloody mess. But it does still hurt, and I expect it will for a while.
Anyway, wish me luck on the battle of the bulge. And a lot of other stuff, too.
