Monday 1/28/2013

Phew, Today was a weird Monday for me. I’ve been having troubles settling down and falling sleep on Monday nights, but last night I was prepared. I downed 2 tylenol pm’s around 10pm to combat this problem and it worked like a charm. Today, I hit the gym well rested and I could FEEL it. I was fired up and ready to work, which is an odd feeling for me as of late, especially on a Monday! Don’t get me wrong, I’m never ‘I don’t wanna go’ about the gym, but normally I’m sore, achey and stiff. Not today though. As I got started on squats, they felt good. In fact, as I hit about 225 I had to mentally slow myself down so that I didn’t over do it. This all worked out well as I was able to get back to 265 on my squats, in my newer corrected/low form and it was good. In fact, I think I could have gotten at least one set at 275. I had my eye on Deadlift though.

The Deadlift…let me tell you, I am LOVING the deadlift these days! You see, I keep up with the starting strength threads and the general fitness threads around here and I see what everybody’s saying about lifting while eating at a deficit. They say you’re going to plateau when eating under calories, and I’m okay with that. The weight loss is still a higher priority than the muscle gain so if I lifting gains slow down? So be it. I’m no longer adding weight every work out, but i’m all right with that. If I’m stuck squatting 265 for awhile and benching 195 for months? Who cares, it’s still a hell of a lot better than what I was lifting before September! The Deadlift though…I”m still seeing significant gains in. I played it safe for a long time, a little bit scared of it. But it’s finally clicked and it’s growing quickly and I’m loving it. That’s what counts, yah?

On the weight front, mine’s starting to fluctuate. I weighed in at 251.4 on Saturday, but was at 255 this morning, despite being 300 calories on Saturday and Sunday. However, I had pizza on friday and movie theater popcorn last night, so I’m like…99% sure that’s all water bloat due to way to much sodium. Which is cool, it’ll flush out.

Oh yah, AND…I bought new shirts and a hoodie this weekend. I had to buy XL’s! /smug
