Keeping track of my training regimen and keeping me honest

Chest and biceps
This is my first solo training session since I got back from Cuba (I trained with Ben on Friday). While I was away, I did some training in the resort's gym, but not as strenuously as normal. I also cycled on the stationary bike every day, anything from 5km to 10km. I couldn't do any other leg work because there wasn't a squat rack, but I covered pretty much everything else. I ate in the buffet at least twice a day - sometimes eating at the a la carte restaurants - and I ate a lot, often two or three plates of veggies (either grilled or salads) and protein (lots of fish and chicken) plus plenty of delicious fresh fruit (guava, pineapple, papaya and melon). I'd often end the meal with one or two bitesize brownies and some ice cream. When I got back home, I stood on my bathroom scale and thought, "Okay, let's see how much damage I did." I was surprised - and somewhat pissed! - to find I'd lost 4lb. I hate being sub-140lb. Oh, well.
