    Yeah, sounds good, doesn't it!

    I revisited my diet yesterday after checking all my food/weights/macro's were as I thought. Think I got a little compla***ent and some of my fats were a little higher and some carbs were lower than I thought! So I have amended a little here and there and my new maintenace macro's are approx

    2400cals
    230g carbs (200 complex plus 12 from my cottage cheese and the rest from veggies)
    260g protein
    50g fats

    I had bread as a carb source twice yesterday!!!!!!!! Today I weighed myself and was 1lb heavier than yesterday. Today has been better re:choice of carbs and I also the first day in 6 that I haven't been 'picking' at random things in the cupboards/fridge. Still look leaner than last week.

    Also managed to train legs today, back isn't great and I may miss my 2nd HIIT session this week so I did 20 mins LIC after leg session.

    Official 1 week weigh in tomorrow morning!

    Still hungry!

    Do you have a thread Joe? Answers to your questions depends on stats and goals. 60 mins PWO is excessive IMO.

    Had a cheat meal last night. Have one every week so is nothing out the ordinary.

    Back was ok through deadlifts today (I only use the hex bar nowadays) but I missed my 2nd HIIT workout which I'm hoping I'll get in tomorrow morning after work and before the 'outlaws' come for lunch.

    I was so hungry today that I have had a major cheat. First 4 meals ok then some chocolate, some brownies, homemade granola bars, small garlic bread, small pizza. I ALMOST feel full. Think I definitely need that HIIT session tomorrow, I may even chuck a fasted cardio session in there too during the week.

    What does your weekly cheat meal usually consist of?

    Anything I want, it's not calculated. Last night was crisps (chips), moules marienere with white bread and an Easter egg. Actually, it's nearly always what my Mrs wants. Dessert is normally my choice!

    Mate, we all start somewhere. Start your thread and ask whatever questions you have. You may get some stupid answers but there are no stupid questions!

    It was lovely. Shame about the large blip Sunday night too. But it doesn't happen too often so I'm not upset about it. What I am upset about is that I did it again today. I've probably overeaten the last 2 days by about 3000cals! On the plus side, I feel sick now rather than hungry so I reckon I'll have the next 2 weeks clean as a whistle. It's out my system, I hate the overfull feeling. Though it's the first time I've felt full in a couple of months.

    On the plus side I made it to the gym today for cardio. Had breakfast at 6am and did cardio at 11am, so I treated it as fasted and had my usual fasted supplements - 300mg caffeine, 1000mg green tea extract, 1g Vit C, 10mg Vit b6 and 10g BCAA's.

    Bike
    5 mins warm up
    8 x 10 sec highest resistance, pedal like crazy with 50 secs rest inbetween

    5 mins rest

    Treadmill
    20 mins @70%MHR
    5 x 30 secs 1% @ 13kmh (approx 8.8mph) 30 secs rest inbetween. (These are not supposed to be high intensitey, more about 80% of your perceived max. Need to go faster next time!)
    5 min cooldown

    That's about 500cals for me at 170ish lbs.

    I'll weigh in a mid week check on Weds to 'let the dust settle' and see what the damage really is. I'm pretty p1ssed with myself but it's the first blowout since Christmas and my Mrs thinks I'm 'normal' for a few days at least!

    i wouldnt sweat it too much 2 days worth of overeating is really nothing IMO.. of course its difft when its you think about me in less than 3 weeks ill be on a vacation and gone for 9days! ive noticed like with yesterday when my eating schedule goes out the window im fairly lost.. i prefer my routine.. just eating "whenever" makes it very difficult!

    u figure even if u didnt burn any of the 3000cals u over ate that only adds up to just under a pound..

    Wish I could work out how to multiquote!!!!!!!

    Routine is what gets me through my meals/days/weeks unscathed. Sunday was a day off work and I spent the day working in the back garden. I was home and it even went wrong!

    I've ran a quick calc and I'm closer to 5000cals over, good work ey!? Anyway, it would be impossible for my body to convert all those extra cals to muscle and fat and, judging by my pooping over the last few days, alot of it is going down the pan!

    Anyhow, tomorrow morn I'll do a fasted HIIT/LIC combo and then a further 20 mins LIC after my lifting tomorrow night. Then it's just back to normal from Wednesday. Maintenance can then run to 22nd Aplril before I add another 200cals from carbs somewhere to the diet!

    If it makes you feel better I weighed in this morning 4lbs heavier than 3 days ago! Lets see how many days it takes to lose it!

    My gym is supposed to open at 6 30am but nobody bothered to turn up this morning by 7 30 so I had to do all my cardio in the car park, unsuitably dressed for 4 degrees C!

    5 min warm up followed by 5 sprint intervals all out for 10-15 secs with 45-50 secs rest inbetween
    5 mins rest
    20 mins of the slowest jog I could do
    5 running intervals of 30 secs (RPE of 8) with 30 secs rest inbetween.

    Done!

    Back tonight for chest, bi's and some LIC.

    Naa just kidding. Actually I guess that makes up a little for your 2lb loss last week. Maybe you need a 5000 cal day as part of maintenance. Man it's still chilly over there. Well at least you got it done many would have used the excuse to take the day off.

    It was 20 degrees 2 weeks ago, this country's weather is fvcked up man! Won't start really getting warm for another month or so.

    I think those blowouts are best left to very special occasions, I will still be having my usual cheat meal on Saturdays but maybe no t this one coming up!

    The plan was every week. But this weekend fvcked up my overall plans. I'll weigh myself every day this week and maybe next too.

    I know I've been all over the place weight wise in the last few days but I suspect I'll be back down to 168 or so by Thursday. I believe my slightly altered macros at the end of last week will have me where I want to be.

    Had a great chest and bi's workout. Suspect the additional weekend cals helped as will not having got up at 5am 4 days in a row which is when my usual chest workout is. No PWO cardio and I was toying with the idea of doing some fasted LIC in the morning but I won't. I'll weigh and if it hasn't dropped to 170 I'll do some Thursday morning. Have my leg session tomorrow evening.

    Daily stats
    Cals - 2390
    Carbs - 225
    Pro - 260
    Fat - 50

    Ad I wasn't hungry once!

    That's really good at the minute.

    Weighed Ian t 168.5 down 1.5 from yesterday and 0.5 up on when I started.

    Just had SM's pancakes for brekko for the first time. Pretty good, need to add a little Splenda next time to counteract the slight sourness of the cc. That'll probably be tomorrow!

    you can also add in some nutmeg or cinnamon in the pancakes and if you can fit in your macros, bananas/blueberries/strawberries. i just add them in after i mix the batter.

    Nah, I dislike cinnamon and nutmeg. May try some vanilla extract. A nice blueberry compote sounds good. I'm off fruit for the next 10 days but then there'll be an allowance for it, can't wait!

    Mmmmmmmmmmmm banana bread! Maybe it would blend into the mixture? May need letting down with a little water though that would mean more pancake!

    A good day, diet exactly as planned and a great leg workout tonight. May need a recovery session in the morning so I have my kit ready for LIC on the bike. Not really needing it as a calorie/fat burn so no alarm. If the kitten wakes me at the right time I'll do it, if not I won't sweat it!

    Well, the kitten woke me at 6.05am so I got up and went and did 40 mins on the bike nice and easy as I'd only finished my leg workout 10 hours beforehand. More a gentle recovery, probably at 70%ish mhr at level 4 of 21.

    Weight down .5lb to 168 which is where I started my maintenance 12 days ago but 2lb more than 5 days ago. I am definitely leaner than 12 days ago and even considering training my abs regularly to try and bring them out more.

    Have my little girl all day and night on my own so no lifting today (as normal). Had pancakes already and looking forward to a meal with a baked potato and some chilli and rice this evening. There's also some bread in the cupboard calling my name so I may even firt that into my macro's later although I have missed my morning porridge the last 2 days. So much choice when not cutting

    Sounds like you are right on track. Cardio day after legs is always fun.

    It could mean that I haven't reached maintenance yet!

    Just finished meal 5 of 6 and I am super hungry. May have to make aid towable protein brownie and reduce supper accordingly!

    I tell you what, going to work and then lifting is a much easier day than looking after a 2 year old!
