2015 cut: just 2 weeks remaining!
With just two weeks left to go in my 2015 cut, I’m right on target to hit my goal weight of 155.x pounds.
Before my cut started, I wrote that my cut would be ending, at the latest, the weekend of March 7th. The reason for this fixed date is because my mom and a good friend are coming for a visit from Texas, and they’ll be staying with us all that week. I don’t get to see my mom too often, and she’s a phenomenal cook. Do the math. 🙂
Seriously, I really do think I’ll hit my goal weight in time for the visit. If I happen to be, say, at 156.x pounds or whatever, then that’s just fine by me. I have no plans to maintain 155.x pounds anyway, that goal weight was meant to give me a little cushion. I’d like to maintain right around, or just under, 160 pounds.
So, while my mom is here I’ll certainly relax my diet a bit, but I will not be going crazy. I will begin to increase my calories to maintenance that week, with a few splurge meals tossed in here and there. I will still be training hard, of course.
I’ll be taking a couple of weeks off from JSF while I’m on holiday. My vacation will run from the weekend of March 7th through March 22nd. My normal daily blogs will resume on Monday, March 23rd.
If I still feel some more cutting is required, I’ll pick up where I left off when I get back from vacation. I don’t think that’s going to be necessary, but I’m going to leave that door open.
