After basically being on hiatus from the gym since April I go back into it this week. I hurt my back really badly in April so I have been wary about doing anything that might aggravate it. However, when “having a belly like a bowl full of jelly” becomes less of a fun kids rhythm and more of a statement of fact it’s time to bite the bullet and get back to it. So, I am taking it slow, I’ve lost a lot of strength and fitness, but I am going to gradually build myself back up again. Hopefully, in a few months I can brag to you about getting some definition back into my biceps. Until then I need to be careful not to flap my arms otherwise, with my bingo wings there’s a good chance I may take off!
