Today, on the 4th of July, a complete day off, all I did was sleep. Not like I could pop off fireworks here at Camp Lemonier, our base here in Djibouti. And yesterday's workout drained me. So except to go pee, I didn't get up until 2PM and even then after a shower, shave and toothbrushing, I went back to sleep until 4:30 PM.
Before I went to dinner, I went to the gym to check my weight because I felt really empty. Weighed in at 216 lbs. I may just hit my mini-goal of 210 before this cycle is over which, after a week off, will give me 18 weeks to see how far I could drop while on a powerlifting program.
