    slowly leaning out and still getting stronger. all good. nutrition on weekdays has been phenomenal. taking the time to prep food and include lots of fruits, veggies, legumes and a variety of protein sources. feeling fabulous. can definitely keep this up for quite some time.

    this weekend was my nephews 2nd bday. lots of beer both days, but also made sure to hit my protein needs and didn't go crazy on any junk. few bites of bday cake saturday and one cupcake at his disc golf "party" sunday. those things don't tempt me, i pretty much only ate the cupcake for some extra pwo carbs lol!

    sunday's workout:
    bb bsq: 90 x 6; 110 x 6; 140 x 3; 170 x 5, 5, 5, 5, 5
    belt sq: 100 x 10, 10; 90 x 10, 10
    bb rdl: 160 x 10, 9, 8

    recently bought a polar h10 and i am going to start taking my hrv reading every morning. mostly just cuz i nerd out on this kind of thing. hopefully it is helpful with monitoring recovery and seeing how a gaggle of beers is detrimental to my recovery lol.

    everything is going excellent. spending a lot of time focusing on learning and self improvement lately. feeling very in the zone and optimistic about life. :)

    going back to work a few hours in the morning. if i can get to bed by 1am tonight i should get 5 hours of sleep. then after 4 hours of work i'm going to rush home and squeeze in my bench press volume (45 min window yikes). then we are going to a pepper festival. :dance:

    i'll try to get to bed early enough tomorrow night to get 11 or so hours of sleep before i'm back into work sunday morning. i wasn't going to take the overtime this weekend.....but i hate passing up that double time sunday pay. i should be fine sleep/recovery wise if i get over 10 hours both weekend nights.

    Busy weekend ahead. I've never heard of a pepper festival; is it limited to one type or various ones?

    just a celebration of all things pepper! loads of hot sauce/dip/spicy jerky tastings etc. there's an amateur hot sauce competition that we spend an hour or so tasting through and then wash down a couple beers watching the jalapeno eating contest (which was won by a woman.... actually both first and second place were chicks).

    after that i took a two hour nap and then hung out by the pool for an hour while my gf and nephew swam. we are going to have chicken, a baked potato and broccoli for dinner. i'll probably have another beer with dinner. then it's bedtime.

    today's super quick bp volume workout looked like:

    bb bp: 60 x 6; 80 x 6; 90 x 10; 110 x 10, 9, 8; 100 x 10; 90 x 10
    db row: 60 x 12, 12, 12
    some other quick band rows and some face pulls.

    The pepper festival sounds like it was fun.

    Are you using a premade routine or did you put your routine together yourself? Just curious because it seems like a good program.

    using a scheduling idea i think i got off a juggernaut video but have fit it to have an extra squat session each week. have an idea of the goal of each day (power, strength or hypertrophy) but then pick the exact weight/reps depending on how i feel before each workout. i start the 4th week of the four week block today. each week's goal this block was overall progression in volume.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    end of week 1:
    weight avg: 142.3 lbs
    waist widest: 35"
    waist smallest: 30"

    end of week 2:
    weight avg: 141.1 lbs
    waist widest: 34.5"
    waist smallest: 30"

    end of week 3:
    weight avg: 142.3 lbs
    waist widest: 34.75"
    waist smallest: 30"

    end of week 4:
    weight avg: 142.3 lbs
    waist widest: 34.75"
    waist smallest: 30"

    end of week 5:
    weight avg: 141.3 lbs
    waist widest: 34"
    waist smallest: 29.75"

    end of week 6:
    weight avg: 141.2 lbs
    waist widest: 34.25"
    waist smallest: 29.25"

    slow progress, but my own fault with days like yesterday where i had too many beers while playing disc golf. not mad about it! :D
