This week I had to play catchup as I missed the first 2 workout days while I was on my amazing vacation. I managed to do it, which was great, but not without a price. I tweaked a muscle in my upper back/”wing” area. Nothing serious though. however, my neck locked-up on me Friday and I left super stiff. maybe it was because I left my office for lunch without a coat? I don’t know. I had to take a day off to let my body rest, but was back at it on Saturday. I didn’t get to do the “everyday plan”, but you also don’t want to aggravate an injury and really be in trouble. However I attacked the workout and felt pretty good about myself. I’m still feeling the effects of the tweak, and jesus be an Aleve pill because my neck definitely feels better. I may goto the doctor if it persists though
I think this week I get a B minus. I ate fairly well. Birthday parties and Football Sunday at bar Twizzle made alcohol a necessary evil (gotta love the rationalization). What makes things different is that now, with my food journal, I monitor my caloric intake and know when and how to adjust (blog coming soon). Also, with the Holy Grail program, the zig zag calorie tapering method is easy to implement. its crazy taking in a certain amount of calories daily in the way they suggest, but I’m very excited about the future gains to be made!
Last week, I told of my .04 weight increase, breaking my decrease streak. To which I proclaimed “Blah. I’m sure I’ll reach milestone 2 by next Monday.” Big talk but I was confident. Well today I weighed in at 189.2, a 2.4 pound decrease and almost 1lb under Milestone 2! This was better than I expected which is a plus. I also took my 30 (plus 5) day Hybrid pics and its some of the best results I’ve seen to date. This only makes me more hungry to get in even better shape. The next Milestone is 185. Once I reach that, I will re-evaluate to see if I need to drop more weight. If I had to guess I’d say I’m gonna make a push for 10 more pounds (180).
Make sure if you’re losing weight that it’s fat weight and not lean muscle mass. doesn’t make sense to lose that, because then you’ll just be a smaller version of yourself now, and that’s NOT progress! Gotta remind myself constantly.
1) Stick with the two a days and makeup for missed workouts – Completed successfully
2) Eat healthy make few concessions and stick to nutrition plan – Plead the fif, but I did better
3) get more rest this week – What’s sleep?
1) Avoid re-agravating my injury
2)Follow my nutrition plan closely and stay within caloric limits
3) Get in extra workout this week if I’m not doing anything better
Let’s focus and move towards a better you! Eff waiting for New Years Day. You got 8-9 weeks to make a real body change NOW!
