Rest Day!

Check in
BW: 149
BF: Hand held, 5.8 percent
I will do the calipers later today.
Just did the 3 spot calipers.
Total number was 12 was = 3.8 percent.
I am not expecting for this to move much more, maybe 1 to 2 mm more.

The good news is the my weight has level off from eating the extra carbs.
But the bad news is being at this weight a little to early since I still have 8 weeks to go.

3 weeks ago I was at 152, so I guess droping close to three fat pounds is not bad. I would like to stay at this weight or just a drop of 1/2 for the next week.

Feeling better but not 100 percent.
I thought it was wise to rest again today, but I did cut my back yard!

I will be starting a rotation of a 3 day and 6 day split. By adding the 3 day, I will increase the frequency of trained body parts. After this week, I will rotate the two but this week, I will do two 3 day workout in a row to make up some time.

I did weigh myself and I was down another pound. Not sure if its from fat or water loss from being sick so I didnt bf myself.
