I had to share...
In many ways my dieting-down for this fight has been totally unsuccessful.
I started around 193, and here I am four days from weigh-ins and I was 185 this morning, pre-shit (yeah that makes a difference, but I didn't need to go) on the scale. Sad. I think maybe I'm a true 180 totally empty... I will in fact need to do a full ten pounds of water at least to make weight... (I've been keeping myself well hydrated).
On the other hand... my lifts have continued to increase (not lifting this week though) since starting 5,3,1 and I have a six-pack for the first time since being a small child.
So whatever I've been doing, it looks like I successfully burned fat and put on muscle at the same time, with a true net-loss of 10-12 real pounds... if only weight didn't matter.
Hey, I need to excited about something, since I'm in very real danger of not making weight, and even if I do, fully expect to get my ass handed to me this Friday.
But it should be fun.
