“Early” cheat meal leads to expected BLOAT.

Confession time: I had this week’s free meal a little early (yesterday). Lisa’s parents came over to watch a movie, and somehow pizza, cheese, crackers and wine go better with a fun family gathering than chicken and broccoli do. No big deal – I have no problem allowing myself the early indulgence, but I will not have another free meal until the 21st. With this cheat meal so close to my last one (which was… [Read more]

Spring cleaning progress; The Dyson DC14 Animal Vacuum; Fun day ahead.

Lisa and I spent the whole day yesterday cleaning (just like last weekend!) and we are making a very nice dent in our spring cleaning chores. There are still a bunch of things to do (mainly cabinet and closet organization), but the rest of the house is pretty spiffy at this point. Oh, except the garage. I’ve got to get that cleaned out and pressure washed ASAP, as it’s pretty dusty and dirty and I… [Read more]

Almost skipped my workout last night; Mental toughness.

Last night I came very close to skipping my arms & delts workout. At 5:30 PM – about 30 minutes before my workout – I always head into the gym to get everything staged and ready for that day’s training. Well, yesterday at 5:30 PM I was sitting in my office, and was feeling exceptionally tired and very unmotivated. Quarter-to-six rolled around, and I was still sitting on my butt. I started feeling really guilty,… [Read more]

Overslept because I stayed up too late; Bloated.

I overslept, but it’s because I stayed up too late. Not only did I stay up too late, I decided to have my cheat meal last night: BBQ and red wine. I’m feeling horribly bloated this morning, and I look really puffy. Is it not nature’s most evil trick that many of the foods we crave are so bad for us? I’m just glad I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, I really feel… [Read more]

My internal clock is reset; Back/lats are very sore.

I’m feeling really good this morning, and have finally fully adjusted to the time change. I slept like a rock last night and woke up at 6:30 AM on the dot. My internal clock is so accurate that I never, ever set an alarm clock. I wake up at 6:30 AM (+/- a minute or two) almost every morning. On the rare occasion that I try to oversleep, the dogs – which are fed at… [Read more]

Awesome back workout; Mental tricks that help keep you honest; New picture.

Last night’s back workout was one of my best ever. Something new I’ve been doing lately is supersetting my deadlifts with shrugs. Supersetting shrugs with deads can be quite a challenge – both for the muscles and the cardio vascular system. As those of you who do deads know (and if you don’t do them – WHY?!), they take a lot out of you; by the time you complete a heavy set, you are breathing… [Read more]

I woke up on time!; Last night’s workout; New photos.

I woke up at my regular time this morning without an alarm, so it looks like I’m adapting to the time change much faster than usual. I think it’s because I’ve been going to bed so early (I went to bed last night around 9:30 PM, which felt like 8:30). I do enjoy the extra daylight; in fact, I wish we could stay on DST year-round. Last night’s workout was chest & abs, and it… [Read more]

9% body fat – 6%, here I come!; Early to bed; Spring cleaning; Dry weather.

I’m down to 203 pounds this morning, which is the leanest I’ve been since I started cutting this year. I still don’t have my replacement MyoTape yet, but I’m pretty sure I’m in the upper 9% body fat range at this point. I’m noticing more cuts in my legs and arms (my quads are starting to show some separation), and my abs are really popping this morning. I expect my fat loss to slow a… [Read more]

Time change; Glutes.

I really hate the time change; I despise it. I’m sitting here and my body is telling me it’s just 7:45 AM, but the clock is telling me that it’s almost 9:00 AM. My internal clock is very sensitive, and these time changes twice per year take my body forever to adapt; the Spring time change is by far the most difficult for me. I’m out of time, so if you missed yesterday’s update you… [Read more]

New monthly pictures; 206 pound comparison; Scale weight.

I just took my monthly pictures and I’d put me between 9% and 10% body fat right now, don’t you think? Closer to 10%, IMO, so I’m going to leave my body fat percentage “officially” at 10% for now. When I first compared this month’s front picture to last month’s picture, I thought my arms looked smaller this month, but then I noticed it was my posing: in last month’s shot my arms are flared… [Read more]
