Felt good to get back into it. I've lost all the strength I used to have and have to start on the bunny weights, but it's just a starting point. I look forward to 2 months from now being able to have at least respectable weight loaded onto the bar. The next step will be to get the diet into check, then adding some HIIT cardio into the non-lifting days. One step at a time, though.
Pullups were the most difficult!
I hope I don't overspend my money and have to make up a diet based on

Able to handle the weight easily, even though all I had to eat before the workout was a couple spoonfulls of peanut butter and a 12 oz Mr. Pibb. My body composition is changing from all these newbie gains and it helps the motivation a little bit. Once classes start, this will get much more difficult as a time commitment. As for now, feeling pretty good
