Strength levels seem to be getting back to normal. I don't know what that was about last week. Also not craving extra food so much. The body is so complicated, it's hard to say that any one thing causes another. But it might have had to do with summer finally coming on. My body seems to hiccup a little bit when the seasons change.
I've heard a few people remarking that they'd like to get in shape so they look good in sleeveless shirts and in swimsuits. You need to think about that stuff in March people! But if you start today you could tighten up somewhat before July.
As for me, I'm trying to loosen up, my right hip specifically. I am seriously thinking of hiring someone to push me into the wall with my legs open. It would take about 10 minutes a day. How much would you pay someone to do that? I wish there was a Craig's List in Japan.
