Day Twenty-Two

Today's Weigh-In: 217.6 lbs.

So, the weight's not quite coming off as quickly as I had hoped. I seem to be hovering around 217-219 still, but I think I should be under 217 before the week is done. Kinda frustrating, but I know how this stuff works. I didn't gain the fat in a week, I'm not gonna lose it all in a week either.

I've actually been doing pretty well. The only off day was a pool party I attended on Saturday where I had quite a few beers and very little actual food. But other than that I've been solidly within my calorie limits and hitting my protein requirements nicely. I ended up getting in four training sessions (plus one easy bike ride) last week. I had hoped for five but I was just too sore. Now that I'm consistently hitting intense workouts my soreness should be much less, though, which will allow me to get more sessions in this week. I'm just going to continue what I'm doing, and listen to my body. If I feel good I'll push it, if not I'll kick back and do more recovery work. I like the intuitive nature of my training right now, so let's see where it goes.

It is great that you are sticking to it and not getting discouraged. I am in the same boat. Posting about it after writing this :)
