Thoughts of cutting my bulk short.

Yesterday’s workout was better than Thursday’s, but I was still far from the top of my game. I’m really glad it’s the weekend and I have a couple of days to recharge. I think I went overboard with the volume for my leg workout last Monday, and that was a mistake. My legs and glutes are still quite sore today.

I went ahead and had my weekly cheat meal last night, and this morning I’m up to 200 pounds and looking pretty bloated. I have to admit that I’m having a tough time dealing with the fat and water weight gains after working so hard to cut down to 6% body fat. I’m glad that in a week I’ll be going on a 2-week mini-cut. It’s funny, because the past couple of bulks I didn’t really care about the temporary fat gain, but for some reason this year it’s really bugging me. I think it’s because I worked very hard for six months to cut down to 6% body fat, and I’m most comfortable with my appearance at low body fat levels.

Frankly, thoughts of cutting this year’s bulk short have been running through my mind: my stress levels are very high right now, Lisa and I will be picking up and moving right smack in the middle of my bulk (that alone is going to take a great deal of time and effort) and, with everything that’s going on in my life right now, I’ve been feeling very distracted lately. I guess it boils down to this: I’m feeling like I may have bitten off a little more than I can chew. I’m certainly not going to make any rash decisions, but I’m going to continue to give it some thought and do what I think is best for me right now.
