Great weekend

Today's Weigh-In: 205.0 lbs.
5-Day Average: 204.4 lbs.

My scale is still messing with me. I woke up, weighed in at 206.2, ate breakfast (including 12 oz. of water) and then weighed in at 206.0. I figure I ate at least a pound, so I subtracted a pound from the second reading for my official weigh-in. But to be honest, I don't trust it so I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet.

The weekend was pretty good. Saturday I spent at the pool, and prepared all my own food. Sunday we went to the beach, so I brought a sandwich and some chips (not the best thing, but it was the only other food we had that was beach-friendly), and made chicken tacos for dinner. And I got in a great workout on Saturday, so all in all I'm on track.

I'm taking today off from working out, since I was extremely tired after being at the beach yesterday and just wanted to get as much sleep as possible, plus I'm pretty sore from Saturday's workout + body surfing all day yesterday. I'll be back at it tomorrow. I'm hoping to whittle away at the 205 and see 203 by the end of this week. That would put me on track to at least be close to my goal of 200 by the end of the month (if my scale decides to work consistently).

wow man, sounds like you had an awesome weekend. I wish I lived our on the west coast, or some place that is nice most of the time. Looks like all your planning helped you stay on track. It's also cool that you were able to get a semi-workout in by just having fun. That's why sports are so awesome. Best of luck this week man

Per your comment on my blog it seems like we are very similiar in a lot of our approaches. I think it's cool, because I'll look to see what you are doing and then I'll try it. (ie stronglifts). I was wondering, from looking at your pictures you are miles ahead of me in the old love-handles department. Do you do anything in particular to work on those, or is your body just burning that fat faster?
