Well here we on Wednesday. It’s been sort of a rough week. The Mrs. has had the flu and I’ve been concentrating on fighting it off myself so I haven’t gotten any runs in as of yet, which sucks. On top of that, the mental journey for the diet has been up and down all week as I continue to fight off the vacation weight gain. Some days I feel as if I’m just trucking along shoulder to the grind stone, some days I’m frustrated. Some days I’m worried I’m facing burnout and just spinning my wheels as if nothing’s happening. Most of the time, I then hit the guy, hit a PR on something and then I’m all pumped up and everything’s good again! Bottom line? Plateau’s suck but, all you can do is muscle through it.

Tomorrow starts the 4th round of my weight loss good. I’m actually looking forward to it as I haven’t seen my coach since before Christmas and the groups make me feel accountable for all the weight stuff. Plus, this will be a maintenance group so I’ll get a chance to air some of the frustrations I’ve had here as of late and get them off my chest. Plus, I have my first one on one with my coach for the year, so we can take a closer look at this roller coaster attitude I’ve had here as of late and get my head on straight. She’s usually pretty good at talking me down off the frustration ledge, so I’m looking forward to it!

On a better note, lifting tonight was a mixed bag! I was able to get one working set at 205 on the bench press, but it didn’t go as well as I’d hoped. My shoulder was feeling a bit ‘crunchy’ though it didn’t hurt, but my right shoulder felt a bit week. I dialed it back to 195 and was struggling (my former normal work weight) but I know it was because I was spent on the 205. All the same…I got 205 x 5! I really can’t argue with that! The real magic was my deadlift though. I’ve been feeling my oats on the deadlift here as of late. I got to 275 last Friday and repeated it tonight. I felt get after that 275 though so I figured the hell with it, let’s see what happens at 300. When I got down thee for my first rep, I half expected it to not even get off the floor, but it came up. It came up well too, so I kept going. 300 x 5 blew my mind. Not too shabby for 18 weeks of work and considering I was a fat shlub before that!

All in all, a good night. Tomorrow I’ll get my head on straight with the health coach and we’re going to start kicking the shit out of sub 250. And it’s gonna be gooood.
