    February Goals - Beast phase 2 (BULK) plus 3 doubles days (Beast Total Body at 5# weights, so more like cardio than weights), 1200 cals 5 days/week, 1600 cals 2 days/week (or 2K cals 1 day per week)...

    Start weight - 160.0
    Start waist - 30.5"

    I'm going to aim for a weekly check in, maybe twice a week since I'm kind of terrible at remembering...not daily, but at least weekly...

    Last week was a wild one. I gained and then dropped 6lbs of water weight over that week so. Mostly just letting this ride out, getting back to my norm and seeing where things go.

    No particular February goals other than stick with my "win the day" critical task list each day. every day.

    5'7", 43 years old

    Starting Weight 1/3/22: 155.8
    GW: ~128-132ish

    2/2/22: 150.8

    Today was one of my lower weigh ins, but scale has been moving again since adjusting my calories, so I was clearly just eating a tad too much and had, indeed, set that limit based on a TDEE average including exercise. Thankfully it hasn't been too horrible for the extra cut back - most days anyways lol

    Start weight - 160.0

    Today's checkup
    weight - 158.6
    waist - 29.75"

    some of this quick drop is likely due to monthly water/bloat that was still in play, but it's still super nice to see the metrics move in a positive direction

    Instead of Dry February, I'll call it Fry February. I know you all want to join me in my fight against fries. 🍟 😏

    how about Fry-less February?

    Methinks "Fry February" implies an abundance of fries. Like Wine Wednesday :) LOL

    FWIW, no fries for me this month either. currently 5 weeks in to a 10-week cut, so....yeah. no fries.

    5'3" 48yr

    Eventual GW a buff 125lbs
    Feb GW 129, maybe 128?

    Feb 3 - 130
    Feb 6 - 129.8

    LOL Fryless February is definitely what I meant, it just didn't have the same ring! I was good fry-wise this week - yay! And I am mostly Wineless every night - I only have a drink with dinner to be polite to my inlaws once a week or less.

    @JBanx256 can you share about the cut you are doing? How strict or severe is it and are you prepping for something? Do you find it tough? If I have excess to cut it is the occasional sweet (chocolate, cookies) and salty (chips, fries) treats. I never gorge on them, but I do indulge from time to time. And of course the occasional large portion where I just overate.

    My strength training is going well - slowly ramping up and feeling good plus cardio (soccer, runs, powerwalks, skating).

    Have a great fit week all!

    Are you just lifting in general or do you have particular strength-based goals?

    I am a varsity team sports type of athlete (soccer, hockey, field hockey, track) and so my fitness and workouts have always been in support or pursuit of better performance on the field. I run, I lift, i do intervals. So when I lift, it's not to get ripped or bulked up but to be faster, stronger and not get injured. But I love definition because....who doesn't? 😉

    I actually got into lifting in college because I was playing hockey on a men's team. I was gonna be the smallest/weakest on the ice regardless but figured I ought to do whatever I could to at least get closer to the guys in that regard. Of course I had NO IDEA what I was doing at the time so I really made no progress in any sense of the word, basically just took up space/oxygen at the gym, but it got me into it at least!
