Last night I spent about 20 minutes admiring my back.
I don't see it everyday the same way I look at the front of me, my chest, stomach and thighs. In fact, I don't think I have ever really looked at my back.
I held a small mirror in front of me and looked at my naked back in the mirror. It was unrecognisable. It didn't look like it belonged to me.
I have muscles in my back, I have a really defined V shape, no bra rolls, my bum doesn't sag and my bum cheeks have a gap between them! Yes, you read that right, the cheeks of my bum don't meet anymore -- how weird is that? I would almost say I look better from the back than from the front.
It is a shame that I discovered this on the eve on winter when no-one will see it for the next six months.
Go into the bathroom now, take off your shirt and bra and take a good look at your back. I bet it is not how you remember it looking. Mine isn't anything like I imagined it. Nice surprise.
Weigh in 61.4 kg -- 19.2% -- BF = 11.8 : LBM = 49.4 this morning so no lasting damage from the carb binge. I actually think I am one of those people who does better on slightly more carbs [around 50-75g) rather than the magic 20g of induction. I think it is because I am so brainy I need extra fuel for my outstanding mental functions :)
