This week’s loss is 2 lbs. I am at 306. Getting these couple pounds to swing in my favor has been hard. I keep going back and forth all week from 304.7 – 306.4 – back and forth. No matter how much I pee or how good a poop I take it’s the same thing over and over it seems. That’s okay. My clothes fit. I feel strong and I am doing my thing. I’ll get these 6 pounds off and then some. I’d really like to be at 285 by years end. I will keep doing my best.
Facebook loves to use it’s new feature “On This Day”. To be honest, I don’t look at it all the time, But I did last night. This is the picture that I picture up. It was a photo of the band at UGH’s Rocktoberfest. So I went looking for a recent one to compare and the best one I had was from the Trappe last week. I am not even sure where the hell I go it because I am rarely in photos of the band on stage since I usually am the one taking them. I look more confident for sure. The first picture I can almost feel myself detached. I am not detached in the second photo whatsoever. I am strong. I am writing my story and I will be the one to tell it.
I have a tattoo appointment on the 20th and want to add a bigger piece to my arm. I am not sure what I am going to do. I know I wanted to have a musical inspired sleeve but some of the musical idea are just so overdone. I don’t know how to add a new spin on it. We’ll see what happens. All I know is with Shane it’s going to be kick ass. He doesn’t mess around.
So I am going to kick this upcoming week’s ass. I want to get under 300 by early November so that I can relax a little on my band vacation. I don’t know if I am going anywhere but I want to be able to relax and take a deep breath either way.
I hit 135 on the bench the other day for 4 sets of 8, pretty much unassisted. I also did 45lb dumbbells for 10 (4 sets) on the dumbbell bench press. My chest is looking nice. Now I just need to get the rest of me there. I have settled into 3 training sessions with doc, 3 bootcamps, and 2 OTF classes a week. It’s definitely more manageable schedule wise. OTF is having a hell week at the end of October where if you go 5 days out of the week you get a limited edition shirt. I am gonna go crush that and send the month out with a bang.
I wish I had more to write and or a better story to tell. The truth is I am struggling a little bit but I am not going crazy with my food choices. I am keeping myself under control. I am doing the best that I can. If I am honest with myself then I have to just keep doing my thing.
I hope everyone had a great week. Keep fighting the good fight.
