Gym Diary: Monday, January 14, 2013

   


     Yesterday, I visited a certain supermarket hoping they'd have shredded wheat cereal.  They had it before.  They had the large ones and the small ones.  They were on sale.  But, they didn't have either on yesterday.  But, they had "Special K" and a few other whole grain cereals on sale, so...! 

     Also, I found packs of individually frozen chicken breasts, plain yogurt in half gallon size jugs, a few cheeses I wanted, and some dried fruit.


     I list my workout summary this way to keep count of the number of exercises sets I do in the time I'm at the gym.  I'm not saying that it proves anything.  But, it kinda helps me manage my time.  Fewer sets might indicate that I'm resting too much in between sets.  It might suggest something about the time I spend setting up the barbells and, so, helps me make decisions about routines.  Anyway, and for whatever it might be worth.  Here's today's
