1 min fascia stretch on each quad, repeat twice

How do you like the carbmaster milk. Worth the price. I drink 3 gallons of milk a week. So I been contemplating buying it.
It is a little pricey if you’re in one of the areas that carries he vanilla flavor tho omg it’s so good. Tastes like straight ice cream. When I go home I Love it haha. Protein content is great tho. And hardly any carbs or fat and cheaper than egg whites.
212 today. Headed to work but popping right back out for bloods. Ended up just getting the full panel cuz it was basically just as cheap as only getting lipids and cmp so may as well. Kinda wanna see my e2 anyway.

Enjoy you’ll be 215 tomorrow unless its"girlfriend "/wife/boss/old lady,/boo/ , then you’ll be 211. I remember 215, I believe it was the sixth grade, MGM had just added sound to the picture show. Seriously, good job. I’ve always said there’s not a lot of people walking around a muscular 240, 215 pretty close,!!!
