The week started out alright. Then Thursday came. Had a post work happy hour, had a couple drinks. Lifted like shit after that. Friday came, and I tweaked my back doing squats. Couldn't do anything after that. Then stepped on the scale this morning and I'm up 5lbs. I can't figure that out. I need to buckle down on my eating plan, particularly staying away from booze. I've never worked out this time of year before. I didn't realize the challenge of eating right with all the shit going on. Going to keep plugging away in the weight room and trying my best and just breathing easy knowing the changes I am looking for will come eventually.
I had a pretty good week this week, although I didn't know how my weigh in would go after yesterday. Had a brother from out of town visit, so eating out and drinks at the bar. The first week in the new cycle is always a little tougher. Increased weight on the assistance exercises takes a minute to get used to. I haven't been able to get my squat workout in yet. Going to try and get it in later today, if not tomorrow morning. Gotta keep plugging along.
I had a pretty good week this week. Thanksgiving week wasn't great. I got all my workouts in, but on the squat day I did something to my neck with doing shrugs and its still bugging me. I also at least like from Thanksgiving day through the rest of the weekend. When I weighed myself Monday morning, I was at 224. Glad to be back to 218. Incorporated some more conditioning this week and really focused on my diet.
Back to the strength training this week. I need to figure out how I'm going to keep the conditioning going this week. Might try to do the walking the mornings before going to work and then mix in the sprints on off days.
Keep plugging away, be 1% better today than I was yesterday. Make savage the body.
