It’s that time of the year… Lot’s of driving. Even in the bands 20th summer I seem to still be getting on stage trying to prove myself. I have a great time when I am on stage. It’s always a blast. The getting there and getting home isn’t so much fun most of the time. Trying to plan for food during all that time isn’t easy either. It’s been a lot of trial and error and while I went 7 weekends without a drink. I had a little fun this past weekend. In years past I lived for Memorial weekend with a burning passion. But this time crazy drunken excess was replaced with thought out cheat meals and balance.
Getting old and realistic sucks I guess.
The thing that I think actually made me smile the most was the fact that I came home from the shore and was worried about getting my sunday workout in and then on memorial day as well. They all got done. I haven’t skipped a workout in 7 weeks.
The scale hasn’t moved much though and that seems to trigger a little depression and probably some anger too. So I had a chance to go to Campos Gym on Thursday Morning to try his in body scan body fat machine. It was a great way to get a baseline with his new equipment and I’ll use it again next month to see how the readings progress. Something was off though, Mostly with the readings I have had in the past and they just all made me frustrated. So I was on my way to New Hope to the Bod Pod.
In line with the 13 pounds that I have lost in the 6 1/2 weeks I’ve also lost 28lbs of fat and gained over 15 lbs of muscle. Yeah. So the scale doesn’t always know everything. And those size 40’s that had a lot of muffin top, still have that but a lot less back fat sticking out. They are on schedule for 4th of July for sure if not sooner.
Coach was pretty happy with the results. Fucking Science. Wants to see where I end the week. We might try Keto for a few weeks. We have a few goals to crush. With the carbs that I get to eat not, other then my morning bran flakes or oatmeal that I actually like I am not sure that I’d miss them. But of course I am not even sure what Keto is….. Google is your friend.
So Memorial Day was pretty great band wise. I felt good on stage. I feel better and better up there. That’s always a plus to be honest.
I weighed in this morning. 309.9 – Still creeping around the same place. Memorial Day didn’t do me dirty. I have control.
300 I am coning for you!
Have a great weekend. Stay off the scales!
Awesome work my friend!!! Be proud of your progress! That’s pretty amazing you can tell how much fat you’ve lost vs muscle gained! Do you! Go you! Can’t wait to see you smash that goal!
