 Photoshoot (at home, not professional)
Edit – 21:57 – I am 6lb heavier than when I got up and feel more full and vascular without pumping up. I have ate a ton of junk today as planned, so I can see what happens. This morning I felt small but tighter, now I feel more full. I will look in the morning and report back, I certainly think that 48hours of heavy dirty carb loading is more beneficial to me at the moment. The morning will be the decider.


Edit – 04/05/2014 12:00 mid day…

After a massive blow out yesterday and lots of water, I can see exactly what has happened to my body and what people mean by overspill of carbs. This is very exciting as I can now work on getting the right balance after understanding how it works.  I also weight 6lb heavier than yesterday do to water loading and junk food. I will update this again for the next 2 days…
