I'm starting a new and more detailed log to follow a more strict 30+ day cut. This cut will have a couple of notable exceptions on the diet: company holiday parties on Dec 4th and 12th, friends holiday party on the 19th, Christmas Day and my birthday on the 28th. These days will deviate from the diet and will more than likely not contain a gym day. This will be updated daily with the previous day's routine/diet. A little history: Been working out off and on over the last year or so with no major progress to speak of. I worked off some weight I gained back during the course of a divorce. New wife is a solid and dedicated workout partner. Began working out towards a set goal in June 2009. Weight at the time: 239lbs. Goal weight by September 26th, 2009: 220lbs.
