Today's morning bodyweight- 202.6

There are so many variables with carb cycling, it can make your head spin! This sometimes happens after my low carb days, but it's just because my digestive system has trouble processing all that protein and fat. I'm happy with this number and where I am currently.

I'm actually REALLY hungry this morning. These are the days it's good to have a job where if I don't bring food, I just have nothing to eat.

I've got PT this afternoon, then it'll be sensible balanced eating until bed. One thing I found on the anabolic diet was that I felt the need to cram carbs during my carb-ups. This inevitably led to over-indulging and thinking of it as time to eat whatever I want. I find that giving myself more time to eat carbs (every training day from training until bed) gives me plenty of time to squeeze in good foods to keep me feeling good and givem y body what it needs.

My wife got chinese food last night (pregnant wife gets what pregnant wife wants, within reason), so I'll have leftover rice, chicken and broccoli after PT.

I expect myself to be under 200 next week. I'm very excited, to say the least, about reaching this milestone.

Today's post-fast bodyweight- 202.4

Well it was an odd route to get here, but I got under 202.5 just like I planned.

I've got PT in an hour. Time to burn some calories and kick some ass.

This morning's bodyweight- 203.8

A couple things have conspired to make my bodyweight look worse than it is. First is the fact that I'm feeling a little "backed up" at the moment. This will take care of itself at some point. Another is the fact that yesterday instead of normal PT I did my PFT, or physical fitness test. This is much less strenuous than normal PT, so I didn't sweat or burn as much as usual.

I think it's official. It's time to add cardio to my training. More on this later.

There is, however, good news to report! After all, the main point of this is to increase my performance. Here's how I did on my PFT;

Pushups in 2:00- 61 (PB is 62, so very close)
Situps in 2:00- 55 PR
2 mile run- 15:08 PR

My best 2 mile run to date is 15:36, so basically I annihilated my old time. Considering that this is done right after situps, which means I ALWAYS get a stomach cramp, I'm very happy with this time. I ran extremely strong and finished the last 1/8 mile moving very quickly. My pacing was almost perfect. I finished the first mile in exactly 7:30, so I only added :08 to my second mile. Next time I should be able to break 15:00 which would put me in a very good place to go into Basic.

Another interesting thing to note is that since my last PFT I have done NO steady state running. At PT we will do sprints sometimes, but most of my conditioning has actually been done in the weight room, where I push myself very hard. My heart rate is usually very elevated for at least the second half of my workout, and my cardiovascular endurance shined on the run.

Today's post-fast bodyweight- 203

I should be bummed out, shouldn't I? But I'm not. I feel great, I look great, I've cut lots of fat and I'm as lean as I've ever been, period. One reason I feel so great is my awesome run time yesterday. With this current diet I've been able to maintain performance levels, so even if that slows my potential fat loss a bit I'm ok with that.

I'm going to train today, since I didn't get a great workout yesterday. I've got Good Mornings planned, then some more posterior chain work to finish up. It's going to be awesome, to make up for the fact that I haven't lost any weight.

From the cleans onward my heart rate was elevated, so I bet a burned quite a few calories today. Not much more to say other than that. Good workout.

*for this exercise I use the high cables on the cross over station. I grab the handles, go to my knees in the middle, then pull each handle down to my sides and slightly back. Not your average back exercise, but a good isolation movement to put at the end of a workout.

Great work. Once basic is done that 2 mile time will probably be down close to 12-13

Today's morning bodyweight- 203.8

Ok, there's something going on here. I actually seem to be gaining weight now. I'm going to have to go back to the dark side a little and let my performance slide so I can cut some weight. I've set this goal. I can't give up on it.

Here's what I'm thinking; I really need my performance to be on lock on Tuesdays when I go to PT. The rest of the week I'm training myself and can adjust my plan accordingly. I'm going to go low carb through the week, then Sunday after training I'll start consuming carbs again. I won't "carb up". I'll just make carbs part of my normal eating again through Sunday night and all day Monday. This should restore my glycogen to the point that my performance Tuesday won't be hundered by my weight loss goals.

This will also take advantage of the nature of PT, which is very glycogen depleting. That will put me right back into a glycogen depleted state where I can kill some fat for the rest of the week.

It's only a few freaking lbs.

Today's post-fast bodyweight- 201.8

I'm still going to stick with my new plan of consuming carbs only on Sundays post-training and Monday. I'm ready to get this cut over with and get back to progressing with my performance in preparation for Basic. I'm frustrated that this cut has hurt my performance. Now I now why some MMA fighters aren't that cut up. I'd probably be doing more pushups now if I had never started the cut.

That being said, hopefully I'm putting myself in a position to progress even further than I would have if I were still weighing 10 more lbs, and I'd be lying if I said that looks weren't involved as well.
