Tuesday... rest day; we couldn't be bothered to cook so we ended up with takeaway. I was still very comfortably under maintenance kcals (1646kcals, 140kcals under maintenance), but...
Gym today was good and bad. I was "helped" by some guy who told me that seeing as my planks looked so comfortable (hah!) I should try lifting alternate legs, or doing Superman planks. Yeah. Thanks. I do know how to progress planks and actually I was trembling during those planks. However, my arms did feel amazing during and after my clean and presses, buzzing/fizzing/vibrating; nice! AND, my negative motion pull-ups are getting better and more controlled.
I got a freebie from Ocado the other day; a new snacky bar thing, branded by "Elizabeth Hurley". I was very skeptical and then I read the ingredients and there actually wasn't any crap in it. I tried it today after my protein shake after gym as I was still hungry (I'm having one of those "permanently hungry" days :o/) Very sickly sweet but pretty flavourless in the end though. It was supposed to be banana and chocolate flavoured but it was just bland and sweet.
