Here's the new routine I'm using at the gym. I'm trying something a bit more complicated with the formatting, so I hope it's still legible.

Celebrating my paternal grandmother's birthday on Sunday was a nice way to officially end that cutting diet. Now, it's time for the next diet and gym routine.

It's been a while since I posted here. Work was bad for a while, including severely restricting internet access, and I haven't had much to talk about, nor the time to do any real cooking, but things seem to be better now.

Guess I'll kick things off with a backlog of comic reviews.

Mass quantities of reviews ahead… ) fitness stuff, too ) And some Transformers stuff to round things out )

I'm also thinking of bringing gifts to AC for friends and roommates. My plan is to give stuff from Michigan, like Vernors ginger ale and Sander's hot fudge.

My workout on Sunday went great. The details are kind of boring unless you want to hear about my legs responding really well or the nice views I had while waiting to use some of the machines.

On Saturday, I helped my sister hook up her new TV. It's a good thing I've been working out since that thing was large and heavy. I also got a new coat since I was tired of struggling to make my old coat's zipper work.

More details if you're interested. )
