      Oh - this is kinda funny: I said I was 5-10 in my initial post. Back to that in a minute.

      During a trip to Houston and hanging out with my 7 year old grandson, he suddenly announced, "You're going to start shrinking soon."

      Says I, "Really! And why is that?"

      Says he, "Because old people shrink. And you're old." 🤣🤣🤣

      Ok, back to saying I'm 5-10: I had a pre-employment physical last week for a new job which I start 8/13, and the nurse tells me I'm 5'-9" while I'm standing there with the measuring stick on my head. "Are you sure?" I ask. She's sure. So..... I'm not sure if I've been lying about my height for 30 + years (I'm 48) - or if my grandson's prediction is already coming true!!

      Just to be clear: I am NOT vegan... Not even close... Veganism strikes me as a form of mental illness, like most things that end with "-ism"... Mean and vegetables all the way on my table...

      I did the caliper measurement this morning: it says I'm 9% bf. That's F-ing fantastic. I started this at about 11%.

      Actually, it's not fantastic, because I thought I'd be happy with 9% but I'm not yet where I want to be. So, I will continue on my current path. Looks like I'm gonna wind up going down to 190-ish. We'll see.

      I tweaked my hip yesterday deadlifting (back day yesterday - if I deadlift it's always on back day, even though glutes and hams are worked just as hard or harder than back muscles...). I lost my concentration for a split second and my left hip and leg sort or turned out slightly. Nothing major, but I felt it a little at the time. By the middle of the day I had a nerve thing going on in my lower back amd down my leg, complete with twitching in my glute and calf. That continued into today. It's a lot better now, but still present. Hopefully it will be gone my this time tomorrow!

      Chest day today, and oddly, I was stronger than usual this morning. My heavy sets on bench have been 275 x 5; 295 x 3; 285 x whatever I can get, usually 3; then 255 for 5 or however many I can get. I usually train alone, so no spotter. Today was no different, trained alone, but put 275 up for 8 reps; 295 for 5; 285 I only got 3 - if I had a spotter, I'd have gone for another 2 reps, probably, but didn't want to risk getting stuck with the bar on my chest.

      Then my inclines with 80 lb dumbbells I knocked out 2 set of 10 no sweat; the 3rd set I only got 7 reps. But usually I only get 7 reps with 80's for all 3 sets.

      So, not sure why I'm stronger while losing weight, but I'm certainly not gonna ***** about it! Hopefully it will help me preserve muscle...

      That's the beutiful thing about what we do you can accomplish your goal. But that accomplishment created a new goal. Cause of the balance of it all.
