2014-12-01 training log

Well, I knew the streak of awesome days had to end sometime. 🙂

Last week every day in the gym was awesome. Today? Not so much. I don’t think it was a bad day – it was still a solid day – just wasn’t the awesome roll from last week.

While of course I can’t say for certain why, I’m fairly confident it’s due to being back on the losing-diet train.

I have lost 5 lbs over the past week. I’m pretty sure most, if not all, of that is from non-tissue sources. Glycogen depletion, water loss, etc.. I mean, the diet is back to being really strict, restrictive on carb-based sources; cardio work is back up; I stopped taking creatine a couple weeks ago. I’m sure it all adds up.

So I just couldn’t crank out as many reps, things felt heavier and slower. It’s just how it goes, no biggie.

What will be more telling is how THIS week (and probably the week after) go. I’d like to be down to 235 by the end of the month/year, which would equate to 30# since August and I’d be happy with that. Still at least another 20# to go after that, but one pound at a time. So we’ll see how things go in the coming weeks.
