Chins and dip last night. I have always struggled with pull-ups but managed 3 dead hang chins in a row, which I'm pleased with.

Sets went something like 3 chins, 12 dips...2 (and a bit) chins, 12 dips...2 chins, 12 dips...1 chin, 10 dips

Then did some benching - 1 x 10 x 50kg, 1 x 6 x 55kg, 1 x 5 x 55kg (obviously these were a bit harder, coming after dips, as I normally do them the other way around).

Very happy with how my pecs are looking and my deltoids are starting to come out nicely. I even have some upper ab definition (under an overhead light). Still got fat on my hips and thighs but not quite as much as before.

3 shakes today, plus 1 large and 1 small can of tuna in the evening with a blob of pesto for taste.

I am off the diet now, partly because the Metabolic Drive I ordered hasn't arrived, and partly because I'm due to fly on Saturday so need to get my body used to real food again before I go. I ate a LOT of tuna at the weekend (and also some ice cream...coconut and lime. It was good!) I hope I haven't given myself mercury poisoning.
I didn't get to the gym to weigh myself but I don't look much different than last week so can't imagine I weigh any less. The weather was so dreadful I barely went out at all. I did a 3 mile run on Sunday, and the rest of the time made use of my pull-up bar. I can do three chins in a row, not easily, but with reasonable consitancy, so the weight loss has obviously helped. I can do one pull-up, still, though my shoulder problem hampers me (a supine grip is far less stressful than a prone grip, for me) and I don't want to aggravate it, especially now I am back to benching without discomfort.
