The more astute of you will realize that I didn't post anything yesterday (OH NO!!). I admit that I actually somewhat forgot, but I don't feel bad about it. Why? Because not much has happened between yesterday and today.
The only thing that has really changed is my diet and nutrition. After talking to my dad, I decided to focus on "bulking" up, which means that I'm gonna primarily try to build muscle, and accept whatever minuscule amount of fat comes along with it. I've been obsessed with my remaining stores of fat, but I've realized that a lot of it is really just extra skin. I went from a 42 waist to a 32 waist, so there definitely has to be at least SOME skin left over (specifically, 10 inches in circumference of skin...ew).
So now, instead of eating 1900 calories or less, I'm eating 2400 calories or more, which is really fucking with my head. After having eaten so little in the past 3 months, I've grown accustomed to the amount. Today I just came back from a pig roast at The Ruck where I had 6 oz of pig, and 9 chicken wings, and that just barely got me to my limit for today. I've haven't had this much food in a while, and its making me uncomfortable because I immediately feel like I'm going to get fat again. Its confusing to say the least.
But honestly, we'll see. We'll see what happens for the next week or two, and if it isn't good, then it's clear that I'm doing something wrong and something has to change.
I was also looking into Intermittent Fasting, but that made me realize that I'm getting too into specifics about nutrition, and that really I should be focusing on the basics: Calories in vs. Calories out.
We'll see. :)
