When I walked into the gym, I remembered something extremely important: today would be the last deadlift day of 2011. Now, to be fair, I didn’t set 2011 as the target for my short term goals - I knew that getting a 1x0.8xBW bench was going to come in the spring, at the earliest. But realizing I was fully loaded with a lot of extra carbs from the weekend, there was only one thing to do: Get. That. 1x1xBW deadlift. And I did. By 4 reps in one set and then one little last rep just to make sure my form was perfect.
My weight went up today mostly, I know, because of the increase in carbohydrates/sodium from the weekend. However, seeing the scale go up triggered something in me: I have
to increase my intake if I want to put on muscle and keep hitting PRs/making gains. No more of this "1,800" bullshit. I plan on writing something about this in a bit, though.

A bit of estimation here but I’m 95% sure they’re almost spot on. I had my last not-home cooked meal this morning with my parents but got pretty accurate measurements on it. Since then, it’s been business as usual and, surprise, even if I calculated incorrectly, the meal still fit my macros. Come at me.
Spaghetti sauce left-overs (TVP, tomatoes, peppers, onions, Brussels sprouts, kale).
Fajita pita left-overs (seitan, spinach, salsa, in a pita)
Peanut Buttah Cup Voodoo (Protein ice cream, Chocolate Peanut Butter Clif Bar, almonds and cashews, and PB2)
Oh, and I took these for some laughs.
