So far, so good

Today's Weigh-In: 207.2 lbs.
5-Day Average: 207.1 lbs.

Well, my first alcohol free day went very well. I ate perfectly (under 2200 calories), had no drinks, and got a good 8 hours of sleep. The scale did not reflect this, but it will. My problem is that I've strained by lower back quite badly, and have not been able to work out since Monday. I think it is a result of attempting to deadlift too much, but who knows. I'm going to the chiropractor tonight to have an adjustment, and hopefully that will make it feel good enough to resume my exercise activities.

I took some new measurements the other day, but I don't have them with me right now, so I will try to update tonight with those and some new pictures. I'm also going to start a cycle of creatine, hoping that it will help speed my recovery times, which are quite lackluster for someone my age. Dunno if it will affect my weight, but recovery is more important to me, to be honest.

Man that sucks about your back. I've been pretty fortunate in not having any injuries since I started working out again. Hope everything feels better soon.

I feel you on the alcohol thing man, it's tough, but it needs to be done.

Great job on no alcohol. That's a tough one.

I hope your back heals quickly so you can get back in the gym.
