Took a few days off cause I have a tough time self regulating in the gym, so best to stay away on deload week. Doing cleans & repping out on OHP is not deloading, my mid traps were beeeat up.

Lifted last night, last deload session. Back at it tomorrow with OHP.

Squat mobility stuff - 3rd world holds then bw squats; hangs then scap moves (forward circles reverse circles down retractions, back retractions, few pullups making mmc with traps shoulders rhomboids, few concentrating on lats etc…)

Shakes & frozen pizza & ~2oz Swiss cheese 2/3 of a jar of peanut butter. Hurts to write that but was beat after work/lifting/ShopRite. Today will be a grilled ribeye early & potroast late.

Ok notes here. I’m scrawny again (wake up ~185 on a light reading scale) & not getting stronger. I’m doing more body weight moves because I’m down ~10lb. Hard abs & veiny all over but I look & feel small. I almost need a belt haha.

I need to start bringing food to work. I eat a ~500 calorie egg and cheese bagel sandwich 11am & I eat 2-4eggs on 1-2 slices of Dave’s bread (310-550 cal) every morning at 730. I work thru lunch fo dat overtime. By 3 I’m starving. 1-2x’s per week I eat a plain NY style pizza bout 230-330ish. If I get a $5 sandwich & an $11 pizza (cheap pie delivered with tip) every day that’s $90/week. I need to be bringing a tuna or sardine sandwich & a peanut butter sandwich to work. #roadbackto195 #jusalildismorfic :rofl::sob::joy:
