    alrighty, i'm back. after that super fun :rolleyes::rolleyes: trip across the country .... with shit nutrition, too much alcohol (1.5 day layover in vegas), and zero lifting.

    back at it yesterday (after 9 days no lifting).

    workout:
    bb bp: 90 x 6; 100 x 6; 110 x 3; 120 x 3; 130 x 3; 140 x 3; 120 x 6, 6
    pgpu: bw x 5, 4, 4, 4, 4
    incline bb bp: 90 x 8, 8, 8
    db row: 60 x 10, 10, 10
    facepulls

    since i wasted the last week and a half and start cutting next week..... i figure there is no benefit to trying to continue the strength phase for just this week. i won't need to deload so i'll just do whatever i feel like in the gym this week to get back in the game and then back to higher reps for the cut.

    lots of stress in my future. and need to try to work some overtime to make up for last week's lack of pay and cost of last minute travel. this will screw my sleep since i have to be up at a decent hour to babysit my mother. :sleepy:

    bodyweight was 145.5 today.

    today's workout:
    bb bsq: 90 x 6; 110 x 6; 130 x 6; 150 x 6, 6
    bb dl: 120 x 6; 190 x 6, 6
    bb good mornings: 80 x 10, 10
    belt squats: 100 x 12, 12

    You have a lot of physicality in your day between work and working out. IOW, lots of calories burned. So says Captain Obvious. :)

    I empathize with the doggy thing. We have a barker who believes her job is to protect the house from anyone walking on our street, including 3 year old kids with their parents. :blank: And when it's time to wake up according to her schedule, it's time to wake up. Who needs an alarm clock when you can get a lick in the face? :lol:

    weekend was fun. monday morning aunt flo showed up. i didn't log calories but ate ok and got in a lifting session:

    workout:
    pgpu: bw x 6, 5, 5, 5, 5
    bb bp: 70 x 6; 90 x 6; 110 x 3; 115 x 8, 8; 110 x 8
    bb chest sup rows: 90 x 10, 10, 10
    inc bb bp: 90 x 8, 8, 8
    facepulls

    tuesday i got up and lifted. felt great. by halfway through work i started sneezing and getting a runny nose and feeling super ran down. literally got home from work and crawled straight into bed. (still haven't gotten a good night of sleep in a couple nights due to cramps). calories ended up low but i was way more worried about sleep.

    bw: 145

    sleep: 5 hrs.

    hrv:

    nutrition: 1497 cals (143c/133p/45f)

    workout:
    bb bsq: 90 x 6; 110 x 6; 140 x 8; 160 x 8; 130 x 10
    bb good mornings: 90 x 12, 12, 12
    belt squat: 100 x 15; 110 x 12, 12
    bb rdl: 140 x 12, 12, 12

    energy: sick by end of shift

    work day physicality: 5

    motivation: high

    stress: 5

    then today i continued to deal with the fun that is aunt flo.....plus sneezing and a runny nose all day. sneezed hundreds of times. ate a lot of fruit and veggies and vit c and zinc and am praying this doesn't turn into a cough. lower calories again. don't have an appetite with this head cold. going to try to get a huge chunk of sleep tonight if the cramps will stay away. fingers crossed.

    bw: 144.8

    sleep: 6 hrs.

    hrv:

    nutrition: 1583 cals (147c/136p/52f)

    workout:
    rest up

    energy: ok

    work day physicality: 5

    motivation: high

    stress: 5

    so despite whatever i am trying to fight off......the cut has officially begun.

    besides a couple light beers during football on sundays, i only have a couple days of nutritional shenanigans in the next five weeks. the next one is the weekend of sept 15-16..... when we are going to epcot food and wine festival saturday and the eagles/buccs game sunday. lockdown until then!

    worked 5 hours saturday. got in some light squats, good mornings and stepups after work, before the buckeye game.
    head cold felt a lot better, but i took some nyquil at 5pm and slept from 6pm to 8am sunday. winner, winner chicken dinner! calories saturday were only 1300, but i felt sleep was way more important lol.

    felt great sunday. got in a nice long full body lifting session and did some swimming with my nephew. only had 3 light beers during all the football games. calories ended up about 2200 and all my food choices were good. definitely a win for the weekend.

    ready to knock it out of the park this week.... with 5 perfect days before some shenanigans this next weekend at the food and wine festival and the buccs/eagles game (if we can find tickets).

    bodyweight was 142 this morning and "waist widest" has already gone down an inch. heading in the right direction.
