Weight is down another debloat pound to 144.6 this morning, but I am still another day away from my pre-family buffet (Friday) and pre-wedding buffet (Saturday) weight of 143.8 lbs. Workouts were 100% last week, and food was around 92%. Supps/PWO compliance was 100% as well. I am loving my challenge compliance chart for checking off each of my meals, workouts, and supplements.
Today was my “choose your own non-TT activity” day. It was nice to wake up this morning and not have to drive to the gym for my workout. I decided to do the Forza DVD workout from Powerstrike.com again to really get the movements and routines down and to get in a combo shoulder/cardio workout. Forza also works the upper back quite a bit, which is good in my case since I’ve always felt that my back was rather boring and flat even when I am leaner. Too bad the local gyms down here don’t offer classes. I think I’d enjoy taking a group class where everyone was armed with a fake wooden samurai sword.
I also plan to do my semi-regular lunch break walk around the office complex at noon.
Except for my cheat meals on Friday and Saturday night (which were so filling that I bypassed meal 6 afterwards in both cases), I have been right on target with my food for the past week. I am really enjoying this challenge–even the diet. Breaking out of my nutrition rut with new recipes has really made things easier, as has Chris’s willingness to just eat the same way I do.
