Emerald_Dragonfly flirts with perfection


Recommended Posts

The goals:

 

1.  Continue to keep the calories below 1780 - my cut ends on the last day of this challenge.

2.  Lift 3 - 4x per week (depending on schedule/previous day's session)

3.  Track weight and calories every day.  EVERY DAY.  So...the opposite of this:

tv comedy seinfeld kramer cosmo kramer

 

4.  Do better at communicating on this board.  Put a gif or real comment 5 days per week on someone else's thread.  No repeating people in the same week (well, I can obviously, but each person's thread only counts as one of the 5).  Gifs must be meaningful in some way - although they do NOT have to be serious.

That's it.   Eat, lift, track, talk to you.

Damn. That forever cut is taking forever!

Feels like. I plan to hang out at maintenance for a bit after this and then cut again.  I have a number in my head that I want to hit on the scale this year (poor strategy, I know, but I can't seem to let the numbers go. - I'm not focusing hard on the scale, but it is always there, taunting me a tiny bit.  Stupid jerky demon scale.)

Were all cutting this challenge!

Ayup.  Because simply telling my metabolism to allow me to lose fat on a cheesecake diet didn't work for some reason.  #Live&Learn

Sorry Shogun, do you also not speak Spanish? Duolingo could be a great resource. You might even be able to catch up to broba. Good luck!

Bamboozled again.  I don't speak spanish. 

No worries...I'm sure no Native Spanish speakers will notice.

Uh oh. 

How did I do with mine?  I just put it in google translate, and there were extra words - I'm guessing modifiers of some sort that I left out.  Oops.

I've only been cutting for all of 10 days and I'm already looking at things that aren't food and having to stop myself from eating them. I will console myself with the suffering of others.

Yeah...everything tastes better when I'm hungry.

You were better, but you actually used "compatriota" which means something like "comrade"... and you'll understand if I hated you a little for that (you know, the whole... living in a socialist modern dictatorship regime thing)...

Today's Training, in pounds ( @Sam Ashen, you may have ruined me.  I could hear the science teacher on the other side of my office wall teaching kids about the metric system today and I - strangely - kept thinking of your :panda: joke.)

 

Goblet Squats

Everything felt okay.  I am NOT going to ruin it for myself, but it is possible that I am digging myself out of this hole.  I was winded, but not ridiculously so. 

I skipped mobility because despite a valiant effort, the Palace heater could not keep out the obscene cold/wind.  Seemed better to just take a hot shower. 

 

Calories for the day: 1740.
