That's truly bizarre. What do you think you're doing wrong?
Hard to say. Off the top of my head:
- Not adhering to my lifting schedule.
Into about June I was rock-solid with my 3x per week. After we put the offer in on the house, my compliance went to shit. Very busy with house-related stuff, packing and closing and moving and cleaning the old place and painting and unpacking and closing again, yadda yadda yadda. The smoke didn't clear until September; but stuff at work ramped up in August. With one thing and another, I've been lucky to lift once a week these past few months.
Work got crazy in September. I am frequently up til 3am working, then back up at 7:30 to take the boy to school. Snatching catnaps during the day between things for work.
When I get serious coding and troubleshooting and late nights, I frequently revert to eating chips and cookies and chocolate. That's happened in a big way these past couple months. Earlier in the year I had diet under control with plenty of milk and yogurt and salads and meat. Not so much recently.
I mean, those are just guesses. It could just be that I need to buy some more gear or watch some different videos, or something.
