Bike ride this morning; Is this the final week of my 2010 cut?!

I’m so glad the weekend is finally here. This past week has been a pretty stressful one, and I’m looking forward to a couple days off from everything.

The weather is awesome this morning, so as soon as I finish writing this update I’m going to go for a bike ride with Lisa. I want to wash and detail the cars before it gets hot, so we’re going to stick close to the neighborhood for this morning’s bike ride. It’s been quite some time since Lisa has been out riding, and she’s not going to be able to keep up with me on a HIIT-style ride. I think we’ll go for a longer ride at more of a steady pace.

I think this coming week very well may be the final week of my 2010 cut! I’m down a couple more pounds this week, and I’m anxious to take my body fat reading tomorrow morning. If I do wrap the cut up a week from tomorrow, that will be a total of 17 weeks. After 17 weeks without so much as a single bite off my planned diet (NO cheat meals), I’m very much looking forward to relaxing my diet a bit over the summer. I think my first splurge meal is going to be fajitas and margaritas at our favorite Mexican restaurant. I also ordered a fresh stock of theater popcorn packs (the popcorn machine has been dark so far this entire year), and you can bet I’ll be making a couple batches of popcorn the day after I end my cut.

This cut has been a little different that past cuts. This time I didn’t cut body fat for aesthetics or to take before/after photographs. I did it for two reasons: to test my discipline and to get my body fat level to a level that I feel my best at. Something I’ve noticed over the past 7 years is that I always feel my best when my body fat is below 10%. Once my body fat starts to climb above the 10% mark, I don’t feel as positive, comfortable or energetic as I normally do. I certainly have noticed the difference when I’m out biking: I’ve dropped almost 25 pounds since January, and that’s a lot less weight to haul around!

So, while I am going to relax my diet this summer I’m not going to get carried away. I think I can strike a nice balance and keep my body fat level at 10% or below.

AtLarge has a free shipping deal going on, and some heavily discounted pricing on select products! Act fast, the sale only runs through the weekend. Here are the details:

AtLarge Nutrition – Free US Shipping with every order – for 3 days only!

For the next 3 days only (through to midnight, Sunday 25th April 2010), there is FREE SHIPPING with every order!

And you know what’s extra cool? It’s valid with every other offer we have running at the moment which represents the biggest savings we have offered to date!

There is no minimum order and all multiple unit discounts and free gift offers are still there for the taking.

What’s more, all of our specific product promotions are all available such as save $5.00 on Strawberry & Chocolate Nitrean 2.2lbs and save $15.00 Nitor, making for an even bigger saving!

And, to top it off we now have ETS and Multi-Plus back in stock! We really appreciate everyone’s patience whilst these were out of stock! (Creatine 500 is still a couple of weeks away).

One last word, because we anticipate a large spike in volume it is possible that we may get a bit backed up and in a worst case scenario you may experience a short delay of 1-2 days with your order. We’ll do our best to avoid this though.

Thanks and have a brilliant weekend!
