Suspending my cut…

I’m stalled again. I’m only down .2 pounds after another week of strict, clean dieting.

I know what I need to do. I’ve got to trim some calories and/or get my activity level up.

Lack of time is going to prevent me from getting longer rides in for the foreseeable future, and I don’t want to trim calories any further. We all know that low calorie fog that often comes with being in an extended caloric deficit, and I have to avoid that. Mentally I’ve got to be at the top of my game right now.

suspendedAdded to this, my stress and cortisol levels are extremely high, and that’s definitely not doing me any fat loss favors. There’s not much more than I’m already doing that I can do about those things.

So, I gave it some thought, and I decided to suspend the cut for now. I’m at 9% body fat on the calipers (probably about 11% in reality–the calipers always read low for me), and 174.8 pounds. It’s not like I need to lose weight, I just feel more comfortable about 10 pounds lighter. It can wait.

So, I’ll pick things up again when my life calms down a bit.
