Refeed bump. Also it's very hot hot hot and my place is like a sauna, so my sleep has be quite bad and I assume that is also making my weight stubborn. The high temperatures will be extended into this upcoming week.

Mental: Good. I'm tired and generally having bad sleep, but I'm in a good mood.

Mobility and Flexibility: Limber 11 is going well. Focused Flexibility - I'm feeling quite beat up. Doing posture and longsitting related exercises is really hard on the body. I've been doing it every day. It's prescribed in the program to do it every day for the first two weeks and then do it three times a week. It'll be two weeks this Tuesday and I think I'll modify it to a few times a week afterwards because my body needs time.

Gym: Great!

Movements/Yoga: Just like last week, I've been doing the headstand exercises, but I haven't been doing the actual movements or trying to do them. My back just isn't feeling 100% for such things.

Plan for the week: Same as this week. Follow my diet and keep weighing in.

So I was doing my Focused Flexibility assessment (something I do every other week). And it is a self assessment, so I provide a 1-10 ranking of how I'm doing. This is really inconsistent to be honest and a lot to do with how I feel - though I have seen somethings improve, while the stuff I'm not working on is overall crappy.

I decided to take pictures of a few of the important ones I care about, just so I can see overtime if I'm really improving instead of relying on my own grading.

Well, comparing to week 12 it's a very small movement in weight. I felt like over the last two weeks my weight has been very stubborn due to sleep issues (hot weather). We had a few cool evenings and I had great sleep, which resulted in my weight dropping nearly 2lbs from the peak. But alas, that's what comes with taking an average for the week. This is a slow deficit, so I should just expect this.

Tomorrow, I'm refeeding, as it's been 2 weeks.

Mental: Good. I'm starting to have cravings again, so I know I'm definitely in a deficit.

Mobility and Flexibility: Limber 11 is going well. Focused Flexibility - I was planning on going every other day with it, but I started to feel better. Thursday I did take off for a break - though I did every other day. I'm hoping this combination of exercises will help a lot. My hamstrings are really getting a lot of work.

Gym: Great!

Movements/Yoga: Just like last week, I've been doing the headstand exercises, but I haven't been doing the actual movements or trying to do them. My back just isn't feeling 100% for such things.

Plan for the week: Same as this week. Follow my diet and keep weighing in. And refeed.

Here is a picture of my hamstring progress with dates. I can say the first part of this I was able to increase the flexibility really fast, but as time goes on it takes more and more time to improve a little bit.

Note to self: More focus on warm up.

Currently a little tight in a few places including my left upper hamstring, my right buttocks, a recurring muscle around my right shoulder blade and my neck is lacking a little rotation on the left. Woo.

I didn't post last week, so I've included them both. As you can see, not too much change over the last while. I guess intuitive deficit is really just turning into intuitive maintenance. I can't complain, considering how hot it has been this summer. It's just rough having a deficit when it's tough to sleep and your place turns into a sauna.

Also, it's my birthday today. I just turned 34. I have to say that I started into some of the food last night, but hey, it's one day a year - I'll manage. Refeed is today. And I'll probably keep the festivities going tomorrow

Mental: Good. I didn't meet my goal of six pack abs by my birthday, but I guess that just happens. I probably could if I kept on it, but I seemed to have run into hormone issues on my low - so slower will be the pace. I do hope to make it by the end of the year though. When fall comes, it'll be easier to maintain a meaningful deficit. For now, I can hope I'm putting on a tiny amount of muscle.

Mobility and Flexibility: Both going well.

Gym: Great!

Movements/Yoga: I've been mainly focused on the mobility/flexibility work. Though I do my headstand exercises. Haven't worked on any movements in a while.

Plan for the week: Just keep doing what I'm doing.

I'm still alive, despite not posting that much. Right now I'm trying to figure out something more manageable. I gave a lower deficit a try again and it's somewhat miserable to say the least. It sort of sucks how deficits used to be a dull, but manageable grind. Now they just blow horribly.

I feel pretty good on a very mild deficit. The self evident problem is that there is very little room for error and I guess that's sort of why I'm spinning the wheels so much this summer. It takes away from the social aspect of life mainly because there is no room for the social food calorie tax (social food just being higher calorie) and the fact that I do have weak moments/stress/life.

So lately I've been thinking about approaching this a little different. Right now we're waiting to eat all the food in the refrigerator before replenishing - due to it needing a long defrost. Once that's done, I'll give an EOD a try and see if that is a more manageable approach going forward.

What bodyweight are you aiming to maintain? Im not a big fan of EOD. Why not just RFL on days you are above a weight threshold?

It's not so much a bodyweight I'm looking to maintain, but a leaner physique. And right now I don't really need to maintain. I need to weigh less. It just seems, right now, that my body just hates my guts and fights me hard when I enter into some substantial deficit.

I'm hoping this is just an issue with summer. It's hot out, it's hot in my place, sleeping is harder, and it's just a lot for my body to deal with all at once. I'm guessing this will be easier when fall rolls around, as it will be cooler and easier to sleep. Maybe my body will still hate my guts for the deficit, but my will might be stronger to push through it.

Right now I'm trying to figure out a plan for something to just get me through the summer that can put me in a positive direction, without having to feel like crap. And like I said in my previous post, low deficits seem to be key to not feeling like crap - it's just there is no room for any error.
