I’m just going to have to accept that my Press won’t go anywhere… at least, for now.

I’m going to chalk it up pretty simply to the diet. I’m just at a point in things where I’m not going anywhere in the weightroom. On the scales, yes I’m progressing — and that’s what matters. To that end, I’m officially 226 this morning and gunning for 225 on Sunday (which will mark 40 lb down!). But I went to see Tesla play at Emo’s last night, got to bed at 1 AM, only got like 4 hours of sleep before I hit the gym… kinda dehydrated, certainly tired. So… dunno if that played into things at all. But whatever — it all evens out in the long run, it’s just one day.

So to that end, my Press felt static today, but everything else cranked up a bit. So… it was what it was.

Really tho, I think I’m more excited about the Defattening than I am about the weights.

For example, back on Tuesday when I wore my belt again for squats, I wore my 40″ belt. Well, it’s time for me to drop back down to using my 36″ belt! 🙂 And that’s just my weight belt. My normal dress belt (a The Wilderness Instructor belt) also went from a 40″ to a 38″. My jeans are quite looser… it all is just… awesome. I’m stoked. 🙂

So all in all, things are alright.
