Keeping up with the details

Hooray for rest days!

I was able to to get my chin over our pullup bar at home twice today and relatively close a few times after that - which I haven't been able to do for a few weeks now. So those seem to be coming back. Daniel's working on a post talking about embarking on a hybrid strength program. I will definitely be joining him. Strength is far and away my limiting factor on all exercises. I am not genetically built for strength, and I will admit to some envy of those who just HAVE strength, but I am sure that if I just keep working at it it will come - some will, some already has (I am certainly stronger than I was a year ago), I just want more. I just have to be focused ... and patient.

12:22 - 8:08 only woke up once around 4:30 - slept really soundly the rest of the night. Was not ready to get out of bed when the alarm went off.

9:00 3 egg cheesy scramble, 2 pieces veggie bacon, 12 oz coffee w/ 2/3 cup 2% milk
2:20 1 cup cottage cheese, 2 oz slivered almonds, 1 tsp cinnamon
3:30 1.5 oz spiced cashews
8:30 1 bowl green curry w/ chicken, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, broth & coconut milk, 16 oz milk
10:30 1 multiv, 4 omega-3, 2 glucosamine
11:15 2 zma

I should have specified that i started with bent arms - so these were not true deadhangs - i still can't get my right arm to go from straight to bent - but it IS still exciting :-)
