mgage Posted August 7, 2018 Report Share Posted August 7, 2018 I died of dysentery, but I'm back now... So, I'm not exactly sure what happened. In Spring 2016, I had all the momentum on my side. I had been successfully losing weight and inches off my waist, while hitting all time PRs (Squat 435, Bench 265, DL 465). During the past two years, I was derailed by a few minor injuries and an almost total loss of motivation. My weight climbed from 193 to 212 (and not in a good bulking way) and I lost a lot of strength by not hitting the gym with any regularity. I used to be really driven to get to the gym as much as possible, but I somehow lost that drive. Even so, I'm starting to build it back up again by forming some habits. I've been sticking to my workout routine consistently since the beginning of July and tracking macros and doing a good job of hitting my targets. My strength is creeping back little by little and my weight so far is down to 201.8. My goals right now are just consistency until doing these things once again becomes my normal lifestyle that doesn't require extraordinary willpower. Goal 1: Training Strength training 4 days per week / Conditioning 1 day per week Goal 2: Food Hit protein and stay within 5% of total kcal targets 6 days/week. Goal 3: Keep Losing Continue momentum of losing weight/inches. I am about 40 lbs away from my goal which can feel like a long way to go. So the thing that is going to really help me stay motivated will be to continue eating small chunks of this elephant. By the end of this challenge, I'd like my weight to be down to at least 196 and my waist to be below 36". 2 Quote The iron never lies. Link to comment
