    DrFeelgood - July

    1.7 Took a down day to recover and rest. Eating ran fairly high because I wanted ice cream, and after sharing some with the kids I ate the rest of the carton. Totally worth it. I went to bed a little early so I could be up and ready for guitar-ing on Sunday morning. Week 1 Check-in. No weight yet, though I feel a little slimmer than last week. My belt is on the cusp of giving back a notch, which is nice. On the whole I feel good about getting back to the grind, minding my food choices, focusing on sleep, and above all pushing the big weights around again. I hope this is the start of some sustained progress. Naturally the very week of switching my weigh-ins to Monday mornings I had a scale betrayal, so I'm taking another mulligan and using tomorrow morning as the official measurement for Week 1. 2.1 Most of the workout soreness had passed, and I was excited to get up and play at church for the first time in several weeks. My fingertips are a bit tender from lack of practice, but I'll get those calluses back quickly. Eating was pretty simple--I had four meals of meat and cheese between bread and closed out the day well under target. Activities were minimal again, partly due to a thunderstorm that preempted any possibility of outdoor work. I took care of a few household chores, then the boys and I played video games while MFG and Bubbles went shopping. Evening small-group was shaping up to be entirely ladies, so I bailed to give MFG a chance at Mom's night out. The older kids wanted to go and hang out with their friends, but Butch stayed home with me. We played board games and ate dinner (he had corn dogs, I had a grilled ham-and-cheese sandwich on sourdough), then we watched a couple of internet shows whereupon I discovered Dr Pepper ice cream that I'll need to try in the not-too-distant future. MFG and the kids came home just in time for bed, and after tucking them in I stayed upstairs for early rituals and bedtime. 100% on track to start Week 2.

    Have done it, did enjoy it. 1.6 Decent day with all goals accomplished, however sketchily. I did drive-thru breakfast, then lunch was leftover pork stir fry, this time with some brown rice noodles. My appetite raged after lunch and I ended up cleaning out the snack drawer with chips and candy. That brought me up to my total for the day, but it worked out since I didn't want any dinner after the gym. 1899 not-too-smart kcal, still a pass. Gym went fine. It hurt, but I did all of my lifts. Squat 5x5 at 140 lbs. was solid. OHP 5x5 at 50 lbs. was easy. Deadlift started with 4x5 at 135 lbs. for warm-up, then 1x5 at 225 lbs. for a decent work set that honestly is probably right where I should be. When that was done I did 20 minutes on the treadmill (walking pace, gradually increasing incline) for extra burn then called it a day. The rest of the night was simple. Got home, skipped dinner, took care of some needful chores, then played Rocket League until 11:30 pm. In bed, lights out, device off not long after. Should be a nice weekend, I intend to maximize my recovery. Have a great one, y'all!

    Behold: the pile of Dadbod clothes I got rid of three years ago. I do not want to have to rebuy this pile, so that's my motivation for getting re-un-fat.

    Am I not looking at the "found" one, or is this a super meta photo?

    It's worse today. I'm trying to be happy about that. Gym again this afternoon is going to SUUUUUUCCCKKKK! Here's to getting older! It beats the alternative. I naturally agree with you; however there does exist a point of, um, diminishing returns. I try to stay on the 'regular' side of that point. 1.5 Ranged a little high with food, but I'm attributing the appetite boost to my body trying to recover from the beating I gave it at the gym. Unfortunately not all of my choices were solid since I exhausted my good eats at work and ended up raiding the snack drawer. I started with a breakfast sandwich (ham, egg, & cheese on a muffin) and a DDP. I added some crackers with salami and cheddar for a mid-morning snack. Lunch was leftover fish (breaded tilapia) and broccoli with lots of lemon (yum!), and I caved to the pressure for some Cheetos to go along with. Later in the afternoon I ate some mozzarella sticks wrapped with salami, and since the beast was still raging I enjoyed a Hershey bar. The quelled me until dinner which was stir-fried pork loin and copious vegetables. I added a handful of cashews to dinner, then later in the evening I had some pecans for a snack. Day totaled at a bit above 2000 kcal--over target but still in deficit. I'll take the hit. Apart from eating I tried to do as little as possible. Everything hurt all day, and I didn't even want to get up to pee. After work I went home and sat, then I ate dinner and sat some more. The kids and I watched some Youtube videos, then I played Rocket League until 10 pm. After a shower and rituals I hopped in bed right on time and did some interneting until 11 pm. I slept like a log.

    Exercise? What's that? How about ice skating with the Minions, does that count?

    I got all that initially. You shift the same way I do, apparently.

    Somehow the commissary on Fort Sill has awesome produce. I just wish I was authorized to shop there.

    1.4 Stayed pretty close to plan. I started with drive-thru breakfast again for the DDP and calories since I wasn't going to have lunch until after the gym. Once I got home I cobbled some lunch stuffs together out of fridge remnants since the kids ate what I was planning to eat (it would've been fine if someone had told me that before I got home so I could pick up some food on the way). Anyway my lunch ended up being one of MFG's leftover egg cups (tomato, mushroom, cheese) reheated then halved and placed into corn tortillas as a pair of tacos. Not bad. Not filling, but not bad. I polished off the leftover turkey breast deli slices to bulk it out. Then when MFG ran out with Bubbles I asked her to bring back a small cheeseburger which finally did the trick. Bubbles wanted me to do a blind taste test of Pringles vs. store brand, which I naturally aced so I added a whole serving of chips as an afternoon snack. Dinner was pan-fried breaded tilapia fillets with steamed broccoli. I still had a ton of calories left for the day and I was extra hungry from working out, so I added some string cheese and pecans in the evening to get my number up. Even so I only managed to get just over 2000 kcal, easily under my 2100 target for the day. Workout was great! It felt good to be under the barbells again, even if they are much lighter than when we last battled gravity together. The best surprise of the day was that I still remembered the combination for my padlock. I started with a dynamic warm-up, then I headed to the squat rack for sets of 5 reps at 45, 95, & 115 lbs. Those all felt good so I loaded up to my work weight of 135 lbs. and did a nice 5x5. My quads were already blasted (forget DOMS, this was nearly instant-onset) by the time I started my fourth set, but I expected that and powered through. Then it was on to bench with warm-ups of 95 & 115 lbs. for 5 reps each followed by 135 lbs. for 5x5. I was definitely feeling it on the last rep. SL 5x5 uses the barbell row, but I've never liked that movement so I did seated cable rows instead. I started low and worked my way up in sets of 5 until I got to 85 lbs. on the machine which felt like a good working weight to start with, so I stayed there and finished my 5x5. After that I hopped on an elliptical for some steady cardio since I was too wrecked for any HIIT, and I cut it short after seven minutes because I was running late and also because I was just done. The rest of the day was simple. I got home and watched the match, then I did some home-office-ing for a bit, then I played a bunch of casual Rocket League on my PS4 account to earn as much currency for the current event as possible before bed. I stayed up an extra hour chasing loot and monkeying with car designs based around my new items, then I went straight upstairs to go to sleep. Everything hurts today, but none of it is the bad kind of hurt. I'm actually pleased with how I'm doing for a change, and even though the next week or so is going to suck skunk junk (in terms of soreness) I'm excited to get back in the gym and keep moving down the path of Lean & Strong.
