Okay. Made it to a somewhat comfortable 197.8lbs 10% b/f

Goals of the practice water cut:
- Experiment with how much weight I can cut
A total weight cut of 11.6lbs.
- See how dramatic of a diet is necessary for 190 and 185. I like food.
I'll aim to lose 5lbs via diet for the 190 fight, followed by another 5lbs for the 185 fight.
-See how taking creatine right up to the water cut affects things.
Didn't like it. I think the extra water retention from creatine makes it easier to lose the water, but in my opinion you're better off not giving yourself an extra 5lbs that need cutting to begin with.

Going to do up a diet and grab some groceries.
