My pants are mostly back to where they used to be. They're comfy around the top and fitted (but not tight), but they feel weird around the front of my thighs. Funnily enough, there's more than enough room in the legs for said thighs. I suppose that my quads poofed slightly during my bulk (I hope SOMETHING poofed...I was eating 2600-3000 calories a day for a month while lifting heavy, for criminy sake), and though they look basically the same to me, they're different enough to change the fit of my pants a bit. I'm not complaining (I'm not done cutting, so the pants may go back to normal once I get some more fat off, and besides, I really do want big strong-looking legs dammit), just making an observation. Some of my muscular female friends have reported having trouble finding pants that fit their quads and their waist at the same time, and I think I'm going to be in the same boat in the near future. Maybe after I get these costumes out of the way, I can learn to sew my own pants. Maybe I'll just be lazy and wear spandex everywhere. I can pretend that it's still 1986 and throw some hot pink leg warmers on for added flair.
Asparagus is teh r0x0r. It's jokingly easy to prepare (rinse, chop a bit off the cut end, boil for 3-5 minutes), and it's yet another one of those fibrous veggies with very few effective carb grams per serving. And it tastes good. I think I'm going to go make some right now.
