Triumphs and Failures

So I’ve decided that instead of spamming an update on the gym for every day, I’m going to consolidate the week’s lifts into a single post at the end of the week.  Regardless, today did have some noteworthy moments, both good and bad.

For starters, I spent an hour this morning wandering around trying to find the gym I was planning to go to.  I was all but ready to go home when I finally found it.  It was a nice little gym but I think that tomorrow I am going to try a different one that is closer to home.  I’ll see which one I like better and try to stick with it, but we’re early on in the process, so now is a good time to try new things.

Speaking of new things, the diet went well today, but I am going to have to make some changes.  Not that anything was particularly bad, but there is no way that I can see myself sustaining this diet at this rate.  For one, I think that I’m going to cut down on some of the fat.  I know that this is supposed to be a bulking diet, but I feel like my body can’t take that much fat intake.  I think I’m going to cut the number of avocados down from two a day to one a day and see how that goes.  I’m also going to change the cauliflower over to broccoli.  Not that I have anything against cauliflower, I just like broccoli better, though I may bring it back for some variety at some point.

Additionally, I’ve determined that my scale is in fact broken.  After weigh in this morning, I had lost nearly 3 pounds from yesterday, so either I am dying or the scale is off.  I’ll try the scale at the gym tomorrow and see if I can get a more accurate measurement.

That’s is for now, but I’m sure that by the end of the week I’ll have some more tweaks and changes that I need to make to the plan.  At the end of the day, if my body isn’t happy with something there’s no way that I can continue it, and right now my body isn’t 100% on the new plan, I’ve just got to work with in until we find something that is beneficial and sustainable.
