    Yea man, it's always a nice way to kick things off. I still have a clearly visible 4 pack which makes me happy. Wouldn't have seen that if I were indeed 18%-ish.

    Now I'm hoping for a nice steady 1-1.5lbs drop per week with no decrease in strength. I'll be paying strict attention. Of course, my mind already has me fcked up thinking I'm a scrawny string bean. Going from 219 to 206 (granted - bloated, fed, and on the gym scale for the former, depleted, fasted, and at home for the latter) will blow one's mind!!

    How much do you think salt and sugar influence water retention? What is it that makes you drop all that water?

    Sodium does quite a bit, however in my experience it only has an aesthetic negative impact on people who are already relatively lean. e.g. somebody at 10% will notice water retention much more so than somebody sitting at 20% from a visual standpoint.

    While sugar isn't directly responsible for water retention, glycogen is nothing more than bonded glucose and water molecules that get stored, so in that sense, sugars play a big role.

    Just finished my last meal for the carb up day. 9oz Cajun seasoned tilapia fillet, then treated myself to a PB&J on my favorite bread, Innkeeper's 8 grain loaf. I figure that on my carb up days, I won't cheat or binge, but will relax my dieting and take more of an IIFYM'esque approach.

    PB&J w/ banana is just ok for me (much better on toasted bread IMO) but just plain PB + apples... omg, heavenly.

    Well, going to watch an episode of The Walking Dead, then it's off to bed for me. Early rise, slam my protein smoothie then it's 6am chest and back. GET IT!!!

    Sweet dreams all.

    Day 8

    *sigh*

    So today started off kinda shitty... I track all my workouts using the notepad iPhone app. Opened it this morning and somehow, that particular 'note' got deleted. That's the entire phase 1 of my routine (2 weeks) with all of last weeks weights, sets and reps logged. I've run the routine enough to remember the exercises, but I was somewhat guessing on last week's weights and reps completed. Not the best way to start a Monday morning. Anyway, here we go:

    Decline Dumbbell Press: 4x12 (found out after the fact it should have been 4x8... oh well)
    Set 1: 110lbs x 12
    Set 2: 100lbs x 10
    Set 3: 95lbs x 10
    Set 4: 90lbs x 11

    So I screwed this one up, overshot my target reps by 4. With that said, I'm glad I was able to complete the first set for 12 reps seeing as 110lbs is what I was planning to use for 8... so I know I should be able to get 115lbs for 8, maybe even 120lbs.

    Flat Dumbbell Fly: 4x6 (this also should have been 4x8)
    Set 1: 60lbs x 6
    Set 2: 60lbs x 6
    Set 3: 60lbs x 6
    Set 4: 60lbs x 6

    Superset

    Pullups: 3 x failure
    Set 1: bodyweight x 10
    Set 2: bodyweight x 9
    Set 3: +20lbs weight assist x 10

    Getting better 405!!

    Decline Dumbbell Pullover: 3x12
    Set 1: 100lbs x 12
    Set 2: 100lbs x 11
    Set 3: 90lbs x 12

    Superset

    Chin Ups: (close grip, v-bar attachment) 3x10
    Sets 1-10: bodyweight x 10

    Note: really emphasized the stretch at the bottom of this exercise, i.e. came to a full hang on each rep

    One-Arm Dumbbell Rows: 3x12
    Sets 1-3: 65lbs x 12

    Note: absolutely couldn't remember what weight I worked with last week and played it (too) safe at 65lbs. Might have been 80lbs last week, still can't remember.

    30 mins of cardio

    lol, sort of. I do enjoy taking pics of food... after all, food is one of my hobbies, lol! But also, I hate eating the sushi off those little trays... I discard the ginger and like to mix the wasabi into the soy sauce right in the middle of my plate and then just eat em' all together.

    ^^ yeh i dont usually use the ginger but do sometimes. I fill a little cup with soy (low sodium) and then add a generous portion of wasabi and stir it in, then i drop my sushi in the soy and let it sit and then flip it over and do it again. Thrn i eat it! Mmmmmmmmm. M

    I mite have to have some sushi here soon! It is expensive to fill meup on it though. Usually 40-60bucks just for mine.

    No idea what 'chili mac' is... what you see is just a standard Italian pasta/macaroni w/ meat sauce, but go for it!

    Thx brother. I'm only eating it 2 days a week to keep from getting sick of it. On the days I'm not eating it, I'm having a top sirloin later in the day as I like to have 1 beef meal/day.

    Today, instead of the pasta dish - 9oz rotisserie chicken and a PB&J sandwich on my favorite bread. IIFYM bitches, bahahaha!!

    I'm having u on....

    I just use stale breadcrumbs and mix it with a spice mix..... Then use egg to make it stick....

    Just buy a fresh loaf of bread, chop it up and let it go stale... Then chop it up fine in a food processor into breadcrumbs.... Keep them in a big tupaware tub

    Sure as hell does come around fast!!

    This past Sunday (re-feed), I stuck to a 'clean' diet plan, but am now planning to go with an IIFYM-esque approach moving forward on those days. It's the one day where I can be more relaxed with my diet due to higher caloric intake.
