Thanks Mike.

Makes sense. I've been eating well/clean 80-90% of the time, it's just my tracking that needs to be tweaked now. I've kept it fairly loose for now as far as total calories and ratio of macros have been concerned (i.e. I haven't been eating the same total cal or macro ratio everyday). I don't think I need to be exact to the gram, calorie, or ratio yet (if anyone feels this to be wrong please let me know). Now that I have this "baseline" of eating for the last month, I can now still eat the same way, but just cut a couple hundred calories per day (and guage from there).

Thanks again man.

If your clothes are looser, then you probably lost some fat and gained some muscle/water...

You'd need to use a BF analyzer or a tape measure to really know.

Scales are fairly useless...

Agree that scales are pretty useless jdmalm123, I'm just using it as a guideline. I took your advice previously, and did take some measurements. I am monitoring all this in several ways...I have taken pics, measurements, the scale, how I feel in clothes, and my one site calipre meaasurement. When I get to a few months, or so, I will post the "transformation".

Thanks for the encouragement jdmalm123...I sure hope so.

Had a pretty hard w/o on Fri (Mar 01)...a little pissed off from the previous day's weigh in:

Circuit of Rows, Shoulder Presses and Leg Raises:

BBRow: 75x10, 100x10, 125x10, 150x10, 175x8,8,8.
BBS/P: 75x10, 100x10, 125x8, 150x5, 150x8,8,8 (these were push presses)
L/R's: 10, 10, 12, 15, 15, 15, 15,

Back felt strong so did some rack pulls @ knee height:
(snatch grip) 150x10, 200x6, 250x3, 300x3, (med grip) 350x3

Back and legs still felt strong... + a little anger...so did some cardio:

Squat/Deads alternating sets: 175x 10/10, 10/10, 10/10, 10/10
(wanted to get to 100 reps, but ran out of time...next time).

March 02 & 03 were off days. Had a couple of family get togethers and ate/drank without logging. Tried to be smart about it. Which paid off on the scale this morning - didn't gain anything but definitely felt refueled.

March 04 w/o had to be deads coming off of 2 days off:

DL: 150x6, 200x6, 250x6, 300x3, 350x2, 380x1, 405x2,2,1 (reset between reps) REP PR

Finished off with some conditioning - circuit of dips, chins, & plyo jumps:

Dips (BW) x 8,8,8
Chins (BW) x 6,8,8
Plyo Jumps (4th step) x 8,8,8

and shovelled ~1 ft of snow off the driveway.

Looks like an awesome workout! A PR makes it official.

Way to focus your anger into productivity!

Thanks Gentlemen - coming from you guys, it definitely means a lot.

Back felt like that "nice" kind of soreness/tightness after yesterday's w/o.

Did a nice conditioning w/o this morning (~45 min):

Circuit of situps, treadmill incline walk/jog, rope jumping and farmer's walks.

5 rounds x [15 situps, 4-7mph walk/jog (@ 3% incline) ~1-2 min, rope jumping ~1-1.5 min, and FW's w/ 50 lbs db's ~ 60 yards]

circuit of 6 exercises x 3 rounds with my son (30 sec on - 10 sec rest)
