Maintenance is 3000 calories? *happy dance* Loving this. Into a new powerlifting routine and making good gains. Just set up my new workout area replacing all the old stuff and it looks great. Moose are calling my name. So is the firewood. :( Looks like an overwhelming fall. Happy to buddy anyone who wants to watch the games.
Greetings from the frozen wastelands of British Columbia. There are two season's here. Winter and Sprawl.
At the end of 2012 I was 230 pounds. I started The Zone diet, a diet I had used before that had worked well for me, and began to cut. By the end of 2013 I was about 180. Diet turned to lifting weights. I still love to lift. Got down into the 165 area in the summer of 2014 and held for a while. Then I went with the excuse of a bodybuilding 'bulk' to eat more. I won't do that again. I ended up very close to 200 pounds by the new year. Now I'm on the cut again and have another month or so to go. Though I still love the weight lifting, my focus is turning more toward rock climbing. I've always had trouble sticking to one thing.
Anyway, diet led to lifting to accelerate the diet results, then lifting became my focus and diet was used to support it, and now lifting and diet will support the rock climbing. Now if I can just get more comfortable with hanging from a cliff by a thread. That rope seems to look thinner each time you venture higher. :( Loving it.
