Sunday - 2400 calories
300g C/160 P/70 F
Today was the third or fourth day where my morning weight didn't move very much, even at an intake slightly below 2,000 cal.
I decided to replace some of my fruit and honey with oatmeal and cereal, and I bumped carbs to 300.
My plan was to then cycle my carbs down for a few days to empty the tanks before going back to 250ish grams carbs.
Well, this morning I was actually down a half-pound and looking more noticeably tighter.
I decided to stick with the plan to still cycle my carbs down, but I may only keep them low for a day or two, depending on weight and how I look in the morning.
I actually dropped some water during the day today, which doesn't usually happen. Hit a new low weight of 191.
In the big picture, I could achieve my goals without all this majoring in the minors. But these little tweaks keep me engaged and I believe they help strengthen my ability to control what I eat with great confidence and minimal struggle.
No workout today, just showing off some jump rope tricks in my driveway to some of the neighborhood kids.
I should also mention that I've had no alcohol for the majority of the last few weeks. There was a break for a big annual meeting and industry convention from May 30 - June 4. I was going to relax the restrictions for that one. I did that and more. Kinda turned into more of a 4-day bender. But other than that, I've been racking up the zero-alcohol days.
I notice a difference in morning energy levels and mental clarity with no alcohol. The difference becomes more pronounced as I string more and more days together. Gets me thinking about ditching it completely or at least making a permanent drastic reduction.
