That's the power of water retention, folks.  All I did was skip breakfast and eat in for lunch.

Notes: I felt less than fully recovered on Wednesday, and it showed in the number of failed reps.  Anyhow, after that I went on a bit of a consumption bender (gained 4lb in 9 days, there's pretty much no way that's all muscle).  I was more than recovered by Friday, and my second attempt at 260 lb on squat went far better than the first.  Benching 195 lb also went easier than I was expecting, didn't even need a spotter (okay, okay, I probably should have had one, but I'm not dead).  Essentially, I went on a quick bulk and replenish for the tail end of the week.  At this point, I think I've just about put off a real cutting cycle for as long as I can.  So, one more week of trying to raise my lifts and eating as needed, then I focus on fat loss, and let the weights stay more-or-less static for as long as it takes.
