Today was Rows/Bench/Dead. It went ok, since I'm using lightweight it makes for quick sessions...like 20-25 min sessions. I did 4 sets of 5 for everything.

Holy Moley.

Sorry to read about the family members you lost.

 Thanks Bando.

Morning!

 At the beginning to middle of December my weight had climbed back up to 230...and not a good 230 might I add. I'm happy to report I'm down to 220 this morning and that's over a matter of a couple weeks of tracking my food. I have it set up that I'm eating 2300 cals which is roughly what my maintenance is since I'm much more sloth like these days. I'm going to continue to eat 2300 over the next couple of weeks and see how my body responds to it.

 I have training tonight and I'm really looking forward to it. Squats, Pull ups, and Military Press.

 Hope you all have a great day!

Nice! I've begun tracking and just started up with the fitbit as well, will rely on the fitbit to set my calorie target.

I've been wanting to get a fitbit for some time but I have yet to pull the trigger. What are you personal experiences with it so far? Also which one did you get?

Originally I got the Charge HR, it's flimsy junk compared to what they make now. When that finally died I gotta cheapo tracker off Amazon that didn't work because the interface software was so poorly written. I just got a refurbished Charge HR off of eBay for $30 but I'm thinking the battery life may be chitty.
