Failed to mention but I was 212 lbs this morning. Holy hell! I haven't been this fuckin' heavy since 2005!!!! To be honest I don't like it, not one bit!

 I really need to lighten the load, I'm eating better and yet still gaining, let's hope it's the good kind of weight gain

You have a goal weight or something else? I hit 216 before I said enough was enough. At 204 right now and am looking forward to sub-200.


 Nah, no goal weight per se. I just use the mirror and how my body feels....I was just shocked as shit to see I'm up to 212 lbs. I'm gonna try and drop to 10-15% BF

Makes sense.

-Torture Bike-

 The workout was ok, I'm up from last week on reps and a little weight. My heart just didn't seem into it. I spent time chatting and watching Flex and Lisa train bench. Always inspiring! We chatted a bit, mainly about squat shoes and Lisa's bench (which was awesome). I spent a little too much time chatting with them I hate to admit, it cut into my torture bike time but I was procrastinating....and I haven't seen them in awhile so it was nice (not like we are big talkers at the gym).

Ugh! Legs then the bike? Ouch!

Wish I could get back to doing dips but each time I start up my tendon tells me "NO!"

 I have to admit jumping on the bike after doing legs doesn't bother me too too much, either way I'm in fuckin' pain while going through my max sections. The dips bother this shit out of me elbow! BUT! I found if I tuck my arms in tight to my sides and go slow and concentrate I don't have any issues....If I push for speed or any nonsense like that where my form waivers slightly I'm effed. Especially at 212 lbs....

 I got a belly pat today at work by a manager and was told I'm putting on the pounds! I laughed because as much as I do care...I don't.

oh, so you're riding a real bike?  I thought it was a stationary one...that's all I ride (the speed style ones, not the old lady recumbent bikes), I'd like to ride a real bike, but getting a good workout on the roads around here means near death experiences regularly....and they're expensive.
