Sorry for the big delay in posts… I didn’t stop working out, but I stopped blogging for a while. I was just a bit swamped at the time and, well, once you fall a little behind, it’s easy to keep pushing it off.
I completed the 90 day cycle on schedule and had some great results. This latest round started off with a pretty clean diet. I focused on getting carbs basically one time a day. That was usually my morning oatmeal. I was able to drop 20 pounds over the first two months.
Then the summer hit at full steam. This is the time of year that I’ve been working out for. I enjoyed it. The sun was hot, the beer was flowing and the Jell-O shots where … gelling? Anyways, the diet slacked off a bit, but my weight didn’t fluctuate. It’s good to see that my metabolism has increased to the point that I can weather some of these bouts of punishment I’ll sometimes put it through. I think part of it is also that what I think of as “eating poorly” is a lot different than it used to be. Eating half of that can of almonds is not near as bad as eating that whole large pizza.
Anywho, here’s how I ended up.
|Body Fat %||26.98%||20.18%|

|Lean Mass Gained||2.37||lbs|
And the before and afters…
And just to keep things in perspective. Here’s a comparison of a few years ago…
