    Yesterday I was shoveling the snow. It took me 3 hours. I was honestly so sore. I woke up this morning with my back and shoulders with pain.

    Today was Hamstrings and quads at the end. It was a hamstring focused workout. I also did 60 minutes of cardio. I only managed to do 120 minutes of cardio this week. I am supposed to do 180 minutes of cardio a week.

    I told Andy that I was going to Nandos for my brother birthday today. He was ok with that. He has added calories, so it was not too a big deal. With Nandos, you can eat healthier.

    Hamstrings and quads were sore. I tried a new squat machine today. It came from another extreme gym. I think the Motherwell Extreme has closed temporary. You can hold onto the machine and squat. It was a really good feeling. I messed around with the weights. It was my first time using the machine, so I was not sure what weight I had to use.

    I made some strength gains because of the time off from the gym and work. My check in is tomorrow. I am not looking forward to it lol.

    Tomorrow will be chest and arms and then 60 minutes of cardio.

    I was in the gym and guess who I see. Andy my coach. He was getting filmed. He was looking massive. He was the biggest guy in the gym. I thought the guys in the gym were big until I seen Andy show up lol.

    I was doing chest and Triceps today. I am really happy now with my chest session, Andy really helped me last week. I was not extending enough and going low enough. The strength slightly dropped because the form was better. I was fully extending and going all the way down touching the chest.

    I have a bigger pump in the muscles. Tomorrow I have Back and biceps and maybe Traps.

    The check in was good. I was 84.4 kg last week, this week I was 84.5 kg. Andy has reduced the cardio from 30 minutes to 20 minutes now. I am glad lol, I hate cardio lol. Cardio is important however.

    I will post pictures tomorrow of my physique. I am now trying to take pictures in natural lighting rather than my bedroom lighting. I find the natural lighting gives a more real look.

    Training has been going good. I had a shoulder session today. It went well. The strength was good. I got some bad news today. I worked in a passport office. I was let go today for some reason. I was doing everything right. I got a call this morning before heading to the gym. It really put my mood off. I was really depressed, I really liked the job and could see myself have a future in this.

    They were making excuses, they first said that my attitude was not good, then they said that I was struggling with the job. I was not even given proper training for the job, everything was wrong from the first day. The people were nice, I was really starting to settle in, I looked forward to going to work and it was a steady pay job. I did not even want to go to the gym but I did. The strength was suprisingly good as I was angry, that must have helped.

    I am going out tonight to watch a movie, I want to move forward and not think of anything depressing.

    I took some pictures and I will take more on Saturday. I did 25 minutes of cardio today, I only have 25 minutes to go for this week.

    Thank you. I need to build some muscle. Andy plan has helped so much. I dont know what I would do without Andys plan. I would recommend a coach to everyone. It makes life so much easier.

    Yesterday was Hamstrings and quads. I got a new personal best on my stiff legged deadlifts.

    I woke up this morning and lost weight again. Andy reduced the cardio even more from 20 minutes to 10 minutes. I am happy with that because that is only 60 minutes a cardio a week than to 120 minutes that I was doing.

    It was a chest and triceps session. My session was the worst that I had. Strength was not there. All the weights felt heavier from the beginning.

    I just have to take it on the chin and move forward.

    Tomorrow I am going to Edinburgh to meet with the job. I was let go, I had made a complaint about that to their HR department. I was not given a warning, etc.

    I have to be there at 12. I will try to wake up at 6 AM and train early, I might train when I come back from Edinburgh.

    Training has been going good. I trained Legs yesterday and Back on Tuesday.

    Yesterday I felt tired and nose was stuffy, the body was slightly achy. I still went to the gym regardless and I am glad I went. I got a new PB on the back squats machine squats. The squats felt the best in a long time.

    I got 115 kg for 8 reps and 120 kg for 5 solid reps.
    I was happy with that. I do have slight knee pain in my left leg, it could be because I went slightly heavier than usual on the leg extensions. I will need to lighten up.

    I did shoulders today and I was so tired after and sore. I may take a day off tomorrow to recover.

    I took some pictures post workout, I will post them later.

    I trained Shoulders on Thursday. I took a day off yesterday to rest.

    I trained Hamstrings and quads today. It was a good workout. I am getting personal bests, I am glad. I think it is the diet which is playing big part. The extra carbs seem to be really helping me out.

    Tomorrow is a check in with Andy, last week I lost weight, so we will see what happens tomorrow.

    I am training chest and triceps tomorrow, I might do Biceps or leave them until Monday with my back. I am only doing 60 minutes cardio a week, which is a relief, I dont mind cardio but it can get boring.

    It is time to add on size, conditioning is still good. The diet is good. I am enjoying the extra carbs. It is a matter of time and patience to see where my body goes now.
