A little surprised to be up in weight but last Sat's beer fest may have brought in more cals than I thought. Deficits on rest days haven't been huge either.
Today I'm gonna pop my 2012 running cherry and try to bang out a 2 mi. jog. Saturday's normally a p90x workout day, but gonna shift to tomorrow due to the bad eating accompanying Easter. I'm also done with exclusively p90x2 workouts. For the most part, I enjoyed it, but I basically spun my wheels the last 3 months. It's almost like it allowed me to calorie cycle and eat crap on workout days vs. complement each other, even though the calorie cycling was a purposed goal vs. my own need (and some nights felt like forced feeding). I just don't see any discernible progress these past few months, and the #'s say the same. Since Jan 1, I am down 0.2 lbs and 0.4% BF and waist measurements are exactly the same. Trying to recomp with p90x2 = fail.
What I am hoping is that these total body workouts now put me in a good position to re-start a lifting routine. I STRUGGLED with Deads last time around and hoping I can get more out this time. I'm thinking of keeping things real simple (again) as I did last fall. RPT, 3 days a week with Deadlifts, Bench and Squats anchoring each of the days. 1-2 days a week of cardio (via jogs) or a p90x2 routine.
Today I dust off the bench.. tomorrow, it begins again!
