Weighed in at 170 this morning Granted that was after PSlin, 150g Oatbran, 1/2c. Raspberries and probably ~1L of water for breakfast, but definitely still up. Abs are still coming back slowly, so I've managed a bit of a recomp this past week using HIIT.
I was able to really dig deep on the squats. The weight seems light, but I know it's a tough workout because it gets me sweating after just 3 sets. I get my thighs parallel and leave my ego at the door with the weights. Noticed some good development in my quads doing this; now some of my old pants are too tight! The upped calories are definitely helping.
One thing I keep doing that I need to fix is not eating a big enough dinner after volunteering on Tues/Thurs nights. I run (8 mins there and back) to a physio rehab clinic, but when I come back I'm usually hot and somehow this kills my apetite. I had that burger last night, but then 3 hours later, I have my usual pre-bed meal of Cottage Cheese, some veggies and coconut oil, I lie down and BAM my stomach feels f'in empty. Then I got an keep eating for like 15 minutes and still nippy.
Energy is quite good. I woke up at 6:30 to get in a nice oatbran breakfast , have 1hr, then hit the gym and still make it to class from 9:30. I'm pumped for 10x10 of Deadlifts + HIIT tomorrow. My metabolism is insane for the rest of the day, and I can see a difference in my stomach the next day.
I'll take some progress pics this weekend for you guys, it will be the 4 week mark. Oh and I've got bloodwork #'s for testosterone for you guys. I figured I'd get my yearly check up done now
