So I was complaining about how my leg workout didn’t seem to be doing what I had hoped, so I did a second day of leg workouts… well, they still haven’t done much.  Normally after I do squats and leg presses and the like I have a tough time walking for a few days.  I would like to blame it on possibly getting stronger and getting used to it, but I really don’t believe that.  I haven’t done enough lately to consider that.  So my guess is that I am still not putting enough volume up compared to before.

But that doesn’t mean that I am going to do it again.  I am still trying to rest my feet, so three days in a row of squats wouldn’t be helping that at all.  But there aren’t many other options so I stuck with doing curls.  I did the Run-The-Rack style again just to exhaust them and then got on the treadmill to do some incline work.

The big frustration right now is my weight.  I know that it isn’t a linear thing, that fluctuations happen.  That stress and water and anything else can cause it to go up and down without reason.  But I have been eating right, working hard, and it is just going up.  This is where I start thinking “I should just eat what I want if I am going to gain anyway!” and I really just get all up in my own head.

And I did… I ate what I wanted.  But at the end of the day, I ate about the same amount of calories I would have anyway.  I just ate deliciously evil things instead of healthier options.  I am sure I didn’t get the right macros or micronutrients, but it was delicious and I don’t feel bad about it.  I tracked it.  I ate it.  I own it.

The rest of the week is going to be tough, as well as the first week of October.  I am heading to Nevada to do a chili cooking contest with my friends and food isn’t exactly easy to come by there.  But I will make due.  And the first week of October I will be going on a business trip to San Jose so I am sure eating will be done.

I still can’t fully divulge the good news I received, but hopefully soon.

Now where’s the food!?
