Diet stunk over the weekend as I went to a kids bday party and ate too much crap. Did some sprints on Saturday which killed my legs. Cut my finger which I was afraid would affect my grip on weights so no workout sunday. Hit the gym tonight, finger still bugging me but I made it through the workout

squats 5x165x5
ohp 5x80x5
deadlifts 3x165x5

diet 1730 calories
fat 62g
carbs 101g
protein 183g

Workout stuff
Did sprints up the hill outside while drizzling. 6 total. It wasn't pretty but I'll get there
Diet, ate a little more than I wanted to, had a date tonight and wanted to eat a little more at dinner to avoid wanting to eat out later. Just stick to the regular diet next time though.

Well back on track didn't last through the weekend, Impromptu dates (that didn't go well) and Mother's Day got me off track this weekend. Did get back at it today and hit the gym and the elliptical for a bit.

I've come to realize I can't keep trying to have a perfect diet. I keep going off track after a good couple days. Back to counting calories for now and eating foods I mostly enjoy. At least to get me back in track for a few weeks without me cheating like crazy half the week.

This is exactly me....it's why I stopped recording cals....and more impotant...started *PLANNING* cheat meals....

I got totally worn out on recoring everything I ate...

So I found a handful of meals that I truly enjoy that I know are in the 500-600 cal range....and with an afternoon snack, I will reliably be in the 1800-2000 range without having to think about it.

I also have mid-week and weekend cheat meals that break up the week and give me something to look forward to.

Something to consider.....I have found that "doing things right" doesn't have to mean daily punishment....and more important for me, I don't have to blow an extra hour every day writing shit down.
Back when I was learning how to recomp it made sense to do it....but now I think it would just waste my time....
Also, being maniacal about being perfect will just encourage punishing yourself when things get a little out of whack...

The mega-caveat with the way I do it is that it takes supreme discipline.....its easy to go off in the weeds for days at a time....I know....I have done it a couple times on this cut.

Pretty solid advice there. I'll second that!

The point is not being perfect, but being consistently in a calorie deficit, which leads to fat loss. So after you get a decent notion about recomposition I think the place to look for pitfalls are the chet meals. You seems to eat clean when you want to, maybe the point is to plan those cheat meals, so you're not caught off guard when the craves comes around.

Yep. Whoracle some people like Mr. Stone can be perfect for extended periods of time, but for others that attitude doesn't work. You meet the ideal for a short period of time, but once there's any deviation you seem to think that all is lost and since you're no longer perfect it's okay to pretty much let the wheels come loose. As many others have pointed out, consistency is the key. You don't have to be perfect every meal of every day to get results; just don't let one poor decision be the trigger for a slew of others and you'll be fine.
