REST

Weekly Reflection

This, in my opinion, was a terrible week. You probably noticed that I didn't write much about my workouts. That's because there was not much to write about... they sucked. I think it is time to start upping my calories some. I have been dieting for 13 weeks straight (15 if you count the first two while bulking). I will be adding 20 calories next week. All of which will be carbs. I will be doing this routine for one more week, then starting a new style of training. I will go into more detail on this next week.

I lost about 3 pounds this week. Some I which I know was muscle. I am upset about the way this week went. But, I guess it's time to move on.
