Man, it felt good to be back in the gym.

Took about 10 days off due to visiting family for the Thanksgiving holiday. Weighed in at 202 before I left, weighed in at 202 after my return. Happy to have stayed flat, and secretly I expect I may have lost a little tissue and gained a little bloat. I ate mostly as off-days, but I couldn’t be perfect because I was at the mercy of restaurant menus and such. And as well, Thanksgiving dinner was my first cheat meal since the start of the month, so I ate well. So I’m aiming for 200 this coming Sunday, which will be a nice milestone.

After that, not sure what’s going to happen. This marks week 17 of this cut cycle, which is pretty long. I’m back-and-forth on what to do, and presently in talks with Nick about it. We shall see.

Anyways, the gym was good. A good session in terms of work accomplished, but bummer because I can keep watching my strength fading. It’s odd to lift weights yet get weaker… but it’s just part of the process. I know it’ll come back, and I am already planning what to do next.
