    didn't take a point yesterday since i used a vacation day to hang out with my lady and sister/nephew/inlaw etc. we had some good pool time. nutrition was great. had maybe 4 beers. good day.

    bodyweight was 139.4 this morning. finally in the 130s lol.

    volume lower day today.

    we all went disc golfing after i lifted. we are going to watch the derby now and then head to downtown st pete to see nathaniel rateliff and eat some tacos. can't wait.

    workout:
    bb bsq: 90 x 8; 110 x 8; 130 x 13; 135 x 12; 140 x 11; 145 x 11, 10
    bb dl: 190 x 8, 8, 8, 8

    this was brutal.

    killing it! definitely getting leaner now. life is going well!

    managed to tweak my hip yesterday. hurt like hell and is being very "clicky" this morning. did manage to win money at players league (took 3rd out of 45) so that was sweet!

    i'll take the next couple days off from lifting (perfect since i just finished a block) and give it a little time to heal. was planning to start a high volume/hypertrophy style block next so hopefully this damn hip doesn't put a wrench in those plans.

    ok i'm going to cover a few topics here and roughly go over my plans for the next few months.

    went back and got an average (guessing on the weekends) and calories have been right around 2000 a day for the last six weeks. nutrition has been superb and i'm having no annoyance to logging. energy has been good. this last month my training volume drastically increased and with more focus on fatigue management i feel very, very good. not really beat up at all. am taking three days (until tomorrow) off, but honestly if i hadn't tweaked my hip a bit i would of just skipped this "deload/active recovery phase" since i'm feeling fully recovered.

    have been testing my hrv each morning for almost two weeks now so have a decent baseline for how recovered i am and yesterdays/todays readings were in the "can handle higher training" levels.

    another interesting thing is this month's pms. i am supposed to start bleeding today and have had ZERO pms symptoms. my calories are not low enough to make me think it's that. my period might just be running late. we will find out. i started taking vitex about three weeks ago after reading some research showing that helping some women significantly with pms symptoms. it's too early to have an idea what is actually going on with this month's, but just wanted to note it here. especially since in the past pms plays a HUGE role in how i usually feel this week and destroys me.

    based on the numbers the last 6 weeks or so i figure have lost about 2.5-3 lbs of fat. something like a half lb a week. this was while having "free weekends" and still drinking alcohol multiple times per week. energy has been great. training motivation high.

    since i am not feeling "put out" logging food right now i am going to use this as a chance to try to figure out where maintenance is for me (and maybe push that number up a bit) by reverse dieting a bit.

    i am going to try to up the calories a bit slowly the next few weeks and see where i am maintaining body weight. this gets a little tricky for a couple reasons. aunt flo always costs me like 10 days of being bloated, heavy, lethargic, whatever..... so i need to not react drastically to that. i also tend to say screw it on logging cals when i get to a higher level. not sure why but this is a great chance to use all the focus and motivation i have at the moment towards something that is a long term benefit.

    training wise i am going to focus on a couple hypertrophy blocks and try to grow some muscle and increase work capacity before returning to the more strength focused training that i usually prefer. this will likely suck since i lift in a garage that will be hot as balls lol.

    i'll run a three week block starting thursday and that ends with a five day beach vacation in north carolina.

    as i raise cals a bit that waist measurement will be important in making sure i'm not gaining much fat.

    even though i probably won't treat the weekends as "point days" i still need to take a rough estimate of calories so i can accurately have some kind of weekly average that hits my goal.

    ok think that's enough blah blah blah.

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

    yesterday's calories ended up around 2500 and i had like 8-9 beers throughout the day. we went to a japanese steakhouse and had teppanyaki for lunch so it's a complete guess on that.

    aunt flo is here so the numbers this week are actually quite surprising..... i figured my bw would be back up to 142 or so. but it's all good.

    got a bunch of sleep last night and am feeling very good this morning. ready to hit some squats n dls.

    going to keep daily calories around 2100-2200 this week with the weekend probably a bit higher. we'll see how that goes.

    forgot to mention i was feeling pretty beat up yesterday but woke up this morning feeling great so guess a good night of sleep helped with recovery enough to roll on today. upper back is starting to get sore..... especially after working all evening. going to go back in for four hours tomorrow....probably around 10am so i'm gonna finish this beer and hit the bed so i can get at least 7 hours of sleep tonight.
