Sorry about the late update this week, this week has definitely been an odd one. Trying to balance sleep, work, spending time with my wife, church, our business, and all my health & fitness goals takes a lot of planning and effort!
Let’s see if it paid off over the last week…
A Recap Of The Past Week
Even though I am still struggling with getting enough sleep at night, I was still able to make it into the gym 3 times last week! I feel like my powerlifting is back on track, and I am hoping to return to my full gym schedule within a week or two.
Unfortunately, the only running that I was able to do was warming up before weight lifting sessions. This week is supposed to see a number of warm days, and since we have more hours of daylight, I expect to be able to run outdoors this week.
I am still working on getting my mind and body to slow down in the evenings, so I can fall asleep and get enough rest to comfortably wake up at 4am (it’s been a struggle recently).
Another week where I can say that my eating improved. My wife made a huge pot of rice as well as soups, so we always had something to fall back on if our plans for the day failed. Also, because we picked up things that can be made with little effort, we had plenty of options.
I made sure to track my macros each day, even when I ate food that we didn’t prepare.
This week I am increasing my calories back to where I had them in January – when I was working out regularly.
Week 12 Weigh In
Last week I weighed in at 237.8, which was a loss of 1lb from the previous week. This week when I weighed myself, I was…
With the crazy week I had, I will gladly take a loss of nearly 1lb! I am excited about focusing on eating according to my goals and being consistently active…everything else is just a bonus.
This week, sleep is still the top priority, but that means going to bed early so that I can wake up at 4am for the gym!
