back on track (yes it’s that easy)

The data looks good today. And as a result, superficial as it is, I am feeling good!

In the past two weeks I have pulled my eating together, kept my training schedule up, and done well as a consequence. Eating fewer carbs, and returning to a near-IF schedule of eating, means I have lost a lot of water weight and bloating, and some fat too. And I retained or made muscle, I presume, since most of my measures (except flexed bicep) actually improved somewhat, especially the umbilical measure.
