Thanks, Asparagus! You read my mind about going back to week 5. That's what I"ll plan to do. I'd rather go a bit lighter than I need to and get back into that groove.

7 more workouts to get back to where about I left off when I took hiatus. Gradually working my way back up. Unfortunately this time I am paying less attention to eating sufficiently. It probably won't be long until a plateau forces me to eat more. The 6 week hiatus dealt me a difficult blow, and I don't intend to make that mistake again. I've felt a little sad at not only how much strength I lost, but how much muscle too. I was really starting to develop some visible muscle mass in the back, chest, shoulders, and thighs and seeing much of that deflate by the end of those 6 weeks kind of messed me up a little. Because at that point I not only lost a lot of that muscle I had gained, but I had *not* lost the fat I had gained along with the muscle. Anyway, I think getting back into the routine has been good and when I get back to where I left off I will be more motivated to eat more. or maybe the new year will motivate me. Blah blah blah. I'm sure I'll get that muscle back and then some over the next couple months. Anyway, lesson learned. No more breaks. No more marathon training.

Update:

Okay, so I said previously I would never let 6 weeks go by without working out. Well, I made good on that promise...I let about 3.5 weeks go by. :-(

But I'm back at it now. New Year, Fresh Start. I again went back to week 5 of StrongLifts to ease back in and build up momentum. I'm also throwing in some bodyweight workouts to add a little extra stimulation while I build back up. The BW workouts are based on the PLP program I saw on t-nation. basically everyday you do pullups, lunges, and pushups in addition to your regular workouts. The first day you do 10 reps of each exercise and each day you add one rep.

I'm a bit sad at what has happened to my body composition. I'm now ~175 lbs in the 12-16% BF range (waist measurement has increased *a lot* over the past several months unfortunately). Diet-wise I'm going to try to clean out some of the junk and keep calorie intake moderate hoping to get my bodyfat down a few notches before I go back to bulking mode. Let's see how the next month goes.
