    actually, that's not completely true. mid-afternoon, I got on my scooter to pick up more cookies and another 1/2 gallon of ice cream (yes, I had a full gallon of ice cream today [​IMG]).

    Sounds like my UD2 carb load... well, except for teh fatz - god, it sucks big time having to restrict oneself to something like <50 g of total fats while carbing up.

    Which reminds me I really want to do a few cycles of UD2 again... just for the fun of it (this is a pretty oxymoronic post, huh).

    Speak for yourself. When you cook some delicious South Indian sambar and curry along with the rice and some chapatis and you can eat it all day, that works for me.. [​IMG] I can eat carbs all day but I can't deal with too much fat. Ice cream is about the only fatty thing that I can stomach.

    how long have you been lifting since your last full 7-10 days of non-lifting?

    Haven't had time off since summer.

    Maybe there's your reason then.

    /rant on

    On another note entirely, I think it's funny how novice lifters always seem to micromanage their programs and diets to ridiculous proportions. I mean, if you want to get an extraordinary physique then it's not inconceivable that you need to put up with some extraordinary discomfort - dieting, exercise, the whole shebang. I'd be willing to bet most peoples description of fun isn't grinding out extensive weight or cardio sessions on scarce calories, but guess what - shit needs to be done if you want to get to that single-digit bf or what have you.

    I don't think every single fucking workout one does has to be perfect, there are always going to be those weeks when lifting sucks, cardio sucks, you're sucking wind all the time or not lifting enough - that's just life (bar any injuries). Deal with it, get on with your program regardless and make progress.

    I think there is a need to micromanage for some goals, unfortunately. Especially for noobs just starting out to get a feel for everything. It's a good way to get an intuitive feel for the iterative process of developing a personal workout/diet for whatever one's goals are. Once you have that comfort, you can just use your own judgment. Like right now, I've been in a bulk for about 2 months, and I've put on 10lb... but my waist has barely grown, all my lifts are up substantially, etc. It took me overanalyzing everything to figure out what actually mattered.
