Been ages since I've had a baked potato - t'was lovely!

Training went well tonight. When I first did a few TGUs a little while back I was wrecked after only a couple of them. Tonight's by comparison felt easy....I may add weight.

I also think that I am getting very close to a proper squat. I had an aha moment tonight after doing face the wall squats and did a bw squat to just about paralell with an very upright posture for once. I think I learned the muscles I need to use. It's only taken me 3 or 4 years!

Swings were very easy on the lungs but I was sweating rightly and the muscles in my legs will no doubt feel it tomorrow. Good session though that had me finishing with a smile on my face and feeling really good.

I got some accu-measure calipers in today. I don't trust my tanita scales for body fat readings, they are all over the place day to day. I'm hoping the calipers can give me a more accurate display that I'm losing fat and not muscle though I'm not exactly sure of what way will be best for me to use them.
