Alright, well I'm back to the 190s. Weighed in at 198 this morning. Not too bad.
My weight has been fluctuating between 195-205 since right after the New Year, and so far we're in March. If I'm going to get to my goal of 175 by June, I really need to step it up. I just don't know what more I can do.
So far I've noticed one issue that's probably hampering my weight-loss. It certainly isn't the exercise, as I can't possibly do anymore cardio. It's not my Monday-Thursday diet, because that's spot on.
It's weekends. Plain and simple.
If I'm going to do this, I absolutely must try and keep it cool on the weekends. This weekend I'm going to head up to my parents house so that it'll be tougher for me to succumb to the partying, etc.
I have a little more than 3 weeks to lose 8lbs. It can be done, but I have to get serious.
I GOT THIS.

Great feeling, isn't it?
Been working out like a madman lately, but weekends are still an issue diet-wise. Oh well. This is a lifestyle, I guess. Can't be depriving myself too much. Besides, I like to party. A life without partying ain't a life worth living, no matter how in shape I could be.
Anyway, slow and steady progress. Tomorrow is my next weigh-in day, so we'll see what the scale and measurements have to say about it. I'm optimistic, but not TOO optimistic. I just want to have a decent reading so I know that my efforts during the week aren't for nothing. If I'm not able to let go a bit during the weekend, then I have a serious problem. It'll have to be a metabolic issue or something, considering how much damn exercise I do throughout the week.
Anyway. That's enough for now.
I GOT THIS.

I just weighed in at 201. 201! WHY?!
Granted, I ate breakfast this morning before weighing in, which I haven't done in previous weigh-in days, but come on! I've literally done everything I could do. I've exercised like a madman for the last 2 weeks, kept my calorie intake under 2,000, stuck to lean meats and veggies, so there's really no reason why the scale should be giving me this.
Ugh. So frustrating.
My waist measurement this morning was decent, but I'm not getting the progress that I deserve, and it's pissing me off.
Oh well. So much for taking an off day this weekend.
It's amazing. If I eat like a normal person, I gain weight. If I eat like a bird, AND exercise like a triathlete, I stay the same weight. What gives?
Okay, I just had to vent. Now back to the grind.

I feel great.
My pants are fitting looser than they have been since last year, I'm continuing to see small positive changes around my wasitline, and I just feel great all the time.
Aside from a little hiccup last Friday, I've been largely on point. I went through all the workouts last week, and this week I've been doing the workouts PLUS soccer, so I'm on pace to break my all-time weekly fitness minutes/calories burned record. It's tiring as all hell, and I find myself extremely hungry at times, but for the most part I've gotten used to everything.
Tomorrow is my weigh-in, and I haven't really weighed in since hitting 196 just before the contest. If I'm 195-197, I'll be happy since I won't be depriving myself of water, or using the sauna before work to artificially get my weight down this time.
Regardless, I feel awesome. I'm inching towards my goal of 190 by March 31st, and that is definitely within reach.
190 - March 31st
180 - April 31st
175 - May 31st
Yes, yes, yes. This will happen.

Meal 1 (8am): Egg whites and turkey bacon
Meal 2 (11am): Protein shake
Meal 3 (2pm): Lemon chicken and veggies
Meal 4 (4:30pm): Protein shake
Meal 5 (7pm): 2 cans of tuna and veggies
Meal 6 (9pm): 1 cup of cottage cheese
That's it. That's the meal plan that's going to get me to below 190 by mid-March.
Even though I'm feeding myself every 3 hours or so, the workouts are KILLER. I haven't done any soccer this week, but the 3 Bizzy Diet workouts that I've done so far kicked my ass. I feel great though, just a bit hungry. Though, as I said before, it's probably cravings more than anything. Regardless, I can't see how I won't get down to 190 if I follow this right.
Well, about that...
Last night a lady friend called me around 8pm to hang out for some drinks. Being someone who could never turn down an invitation from a lovely lady, I said sure. Went to a wine bar and had myself about 4 glasses. Not too bad, and it didn't derail the plan. Looks like I'll have no problem sticking to this, so long as I can make some, uh, minor modifications here and there.
At least the damage I did to myself over this past weekend seems to have been wiped away. I didn't get a chance to weigh myself this morning, but I measured my waist and was happy with the results. Unchanged since last week, which is a good sign.
Anyway, this weekend will be tough, but since I made sure not to make any partying plans, I'll just have to make do with video games, TV, and some workouts.
17 days to go!
