"Make it happen" in 2013
I realize that for the past couple of years, I have started and abandoned logs. Many factors have gone into that, but this year, I have nothing standing in my way of packing on muscle and getting into better shape.

A little background:

In May of 2010, I dropped out of school to start cooking. Due to laziness and stress and depression and such, I shot up from about 215 pounds to 265. I maintained that for about a year.

In May of 2011 I moved in with a coworker and money was tight. I didn't have access to a local gym. I started working about 60 hours a week and partying hard. I dropped down to 207 pounds between May 2011 and September 2012, though it wasn't in a healthful manner.

I moved back home to Tuscaloosa in September 2012 to return to school and be closer to family. I have gained 13 pounds since then, simply due to actually eating again. I went to the doctor last week for a check-up, and everything is A-Okay with my health, except for my weight. I am actually still waiting to hear how the cortisol blood test went, but if there is an issue with that, we'll treat it.

Due to the physicality of my line of work, I have retained a good bit of strength. I just need to build on that and get back in shape. I plan on doing BendTheBar's full body workout, starting this coming Monday. I will be starting out at low weight so I can work back into this as it has been a while since I have hit the iron.

I am looking forward to the support from this community as I get my ass in gear for packing on muscle again. Roll Tide!

:thor: I'm not so great at keeping logs going either; hope you reach your goals for 2013!

Due to some issues earlier in the week, I didn't get into the gym until today. I feel like a new man already. Did everything light just so I don't get too sore and discouraged. I will post the log when I get back from taking the dog out.
