I'm getting far more out of these training sessions than just getting stronger. I'm learning not to sweat the small stuff, to relax, to chill, and to breathe.

I'm into my third week doing this style of training and eating accordingly. Not enough time to see that much change (fat loss or muscle growth) but as John Hussman says "You Really Do Change From the Inside Out". And although I'm not over the moon about my physique at the moment, the alternative is to cut my calories again, starve my body again, lower my metabolism again, lose lean mass again and the merry go round continues for as I long as I let it. I've been on it long enough and this is my chance to get off so I'm willing to persist and take each day as it comes. I have bad days where all I see is fat and feel like shit then like the flick of a switch I see all the good that is coming, like how fucking huge my muscles are (LOL), from everything I'm striving to achieve. Today is one of those days - hallelujah!
