I have been cleaning up my diet for the past 2 weeks, my belief was why go to the gym if my diet was for S^^^.

So, please if you have any good advise please feel free to let me know, if you have any bad advise or critisism please feel free to keep it to yourself.....

Thanks for taking the time to read my log......
Glad to have you here. We have similar backgrounds, though I never competed. I was a hardcore lifter and took time off due to work stress/lack of sleep for years. I started back up again at the right before my 40th birthday.

I hope you stick with it. You'll get all the encouragement you can handle here.

Any clue how you are going to train?

When I got back at it I pretty much used a one day on, one day off. My weights were pathetic, and I was frustrated. Hang in there. it comes back fast, even at our age.
