Low-carb, low-calorie, half-fasted rest day. Banks me some calories for the weekend. I think I'll be fine with the two moving-based days: no time to be snacky, planned meals are low-carb, etc, and my one holiday meal on Sunday is in a restaurant, which will be strictly meat & veg.
Sleep: In bed 7.5 hours, 915p-445a. Pretty damned solid!
Body: Slight shin weirdness in AM, went away later; everything else feels pretty fantastic.
I've reached a new body comp milestone: bras don't fit very well...if only we could choose where the fat comes from! Plus, yesterday while training, I stole a glance at Joy's middle and thought, "Hm, that's about how I look. And she looks pretty damned great, therefore I must not look as terrible as I think I do!" I also posed in front of the mirror this morning and focused on how nice my butt looks, because I didn't notice the belly so much. Excellent.
Stretches x3: 745am, 130p, 8p. Pull-ups after class: 6, 6, 6, 5/1, /4.
Brain: Good! Busy workday, LAPW lunch meeting, got another Xmas gift, someone looked at our house in the eve...which turned out to be my cousin, and he wants it next month. Yaaaaay!!
Xmas gift: variety pack of really good tea & a jar of really good coconut oil. From Joy. Who else?!
The Big Payoff isn't out there somewhere: it's all around us as the total of all the little payoffs.
