Nice job on your journey for fitness and weightloss Monsta.
Back in Sept I was diagnosed with PTSD among other things, was in a terrible relationship and just let myself go to crap. Was close to 230 (I'm 5'6") and not much muscle. First workout and I couldnt do a chin up, much less bench even 110lbs but things have turned around for me too.
Good health and fitness has really done a lot for me so I wish you luck but you seem to have the motivation and good outlook going for you.
Keep rocking those weights!
got sloppy with eating over this weekend, my mind was not their. had a lot of family over this weekend and messed up my weekend. im back to eating healthy and getting it going again. Im pretty upset with myself.
Lol this is how my weekend went.
Friday: ate whole large Hawaiian hungry howles pizza.
Saturday: went to checkers, 2 bacon burgers, chili cheese fries, and Oreo Sunday.
Worked 12 hours Mother's Day ( I work at a restaurant) and all morning long I was eating bacon and sausage like crazy, plus the occasional piece of cheese cake.
Plus I ate my regular diet both these days of 3200 cals, so I was probably doing 5-6000 both those days lol.

Sure you can splurge sometimes for even a week or more but remember you can hit the gym and make up for it.
Life throws you curve balls in the form of pizza, burgers, crazy good desserts and its just too hard to resist sometime. And its soooo easy to eat up when friends and family are around if even just out of habit.
Heck sometimes having 'bad' weekends gave me the incentive to hit the gym and diet EVEN harder. I went about 3 weeks recently just pigging out at times and I was disgusted with myself. It did rejuvenate me wanting to hit the gym harder and even to the point where I ride the bike 4+ times a week now. It's not about the bad choices as much as its about how you recover.
I try not to think of it as a diet any more. I like to think I've changed my lifestyle. Sure I can eat chinese food and pizza every now and then but I also cut down 99% on my pop drinking, I don't eat sweets nearly as much as I used to, and I mentally try to make sure I don't really go over my 2000 calories a day. When I do manage to eat some good stuff man do I enjoy it
I wish you luck and I'm sure you will get back to hulk-ing it up and personally this board is good for giving me incentive.
Monsta. It is all good man. You are out of the slump and back on track. I get in slumps all the time and my problem is I don't get back. I am in a slump now going in 1 month lol. So 1 weekend won't kill you. Keep it up
It's all good dude. Diet melt downs happen. It's part of the game. I had one just yesterday actually. The key is how you recover from it and to not make it a habit or get comfortable with it.
