Pretty much a post about nothing. I slept in this morning as I needed it. This morning I'm relaxing and will start to pack. I'll be swimming this weekend at the Florida Senior Games so I will be traveling to the Tampa area later after lunch.

How much posting will be I be doing this weekend? Not much. Maybe a quick recap Saturday and Sunday. After my events I'll hang around and cheer on other swimmers. I'd like to explore the city a bit as I haven't been around this area in a very long time. We will see depending on weather and all that.
As for the Florida Senior Games:

IN MY HEAD:
NEW MONTH NO NEW ME. I keep forgetting to log my scale results around the 9th of the month. Why the 9th? Well back in April that is about the date I started with my TRT or Testosterone Replacement Therapy. I've been on it now for 7 months. Do I see or feel a difference? Meh. Could just be a placebo effect. What I need to do it not compare what my cheap twenty dollar Amazon scale says but I should go back and compare my lifts at the gym from then to now. But for now let's look at my cheap twenty dollar Amazon scale: I really really doubt the scale is getting the information I need. The feet sensor scales don't scan the upper body so to say I've gained 2lbs of muscle in eight months is just not true. I can see pix of me from then to today and it's so different. That is why looking and comparing my lifts is gonna be the real factor. I know my nutrition sucks on many days. I did eat Chicken Nuggets for lunch yesterday and drank a few hard seltzers last night.
And yes I did just say I am on TRT. I have been reluctant to talk about it and for that I'm leaving that at that. I will talk more about it in another post at some point, maybe.
Read my three daily books yesterday and that was it. I wont be bringing them with me this weekend but will bring a book. Doubt I'll read it but I'll have it.
All three daily reads have a great lesson… pic.twitter.com/pzDXRyfP1j— Joel McKenna (@the17thman) November 30, 2023
ONE MORE REP:
From Fitness Entrepreneur Shaun T, 'Learning How To Manage Money Was A Journey For Me' https://www.forbes.com/video/6342001554112/from-fitness-entrepreneur-shaun-t-learning-how-to-manage-money-was-a-journey-for-me/?sh=7ca7910b1e00
It's a good rant today. Piggy backing on ONE MORE REP I gotta say I find Shaun T an amazing role model for gay men and fitness folks. His biography is a great book that I've read about half way. Gotta pick it back up. His social media feeds are truly worth following. Everything he does is an inspiration. His recent journey into body building competitions has been fun to follow. If you ask me which celebrity would I like to have lunch with it would be this man.
