day 2685 – hard cut complete

today is the end of my week long cut and i’m pleased to have hit my goal. cutting five pounds in such a short period of time is a significant number since i can typically only drop a half a pound per week. the cut was by no means easy nor fun, it was brutal getting by each day under one thousand calories. without carbs and limited sugar, my body felt depleted and struggled to recover from trainings. it brought forth rewarding results and this is just to kickstart everything. i’ll taper off on the hard cut, but still be on a cut to reach lower numbers

canada day was exactly opposite of how a statutory holiday should be like; not only am i at work but i even worked overtime. it was a long and exhausting day with no shortage of frustrations and surprises throughout. so much effort, time, preparation, sweat and anger has been put in order to make this inter school competition possible, not only on the front end but also on the back end behind the scenes. on the bright side, today i got to see all my students put forth their efforts , many of which made great improvements. but man, was i ever tired at the end of the day and not many ounces of energy left in me
