    174.6 lbs

    Im surprised I’m only 1 lb heavier today, lots of food weight yesterday and more salt than normal in the evening on my dinner (craving it). Got my Rogue Ohio belt, medium will work just fine. Quality wise, it is not in the same caliber as my other belt made by “Best Belts” fit and finish, hardware etc. it’s made in the USA and I’m not worried about it breaking, but for the same price and a 6 week wait, I probably would have been better off ordering another custom made belt. Took the day off work today, will get a nap, sleep has been lacking last couple days. Legs are still a little sore from lunges, but they’ll loosen up just fine.

    5:05 - 6:25am / 80 min / 28 sets (probably 15 min chatting)

    That was rough. My legs were hurtin, not sure if DOMS or minor strain on inner thigh R leg, but it made it hard to put in the work. Squats felt heavy at 315, Leg press and RDLs were alright maybe felt a little lighter IDK. Got it done, nothing stellar. Belt is okay, wore it for 315 sets to give it a trial run.

    Not sure what the plan is for today, looks like rain/storms until early afternoon. Might get some cardio in this morning. Was probably around maintenance yesterday with a cook out, so I’ll get back to deficit calories today. Should be seeing a several lb loss this week though from last weeks strange increased weight.

    175.2 lbs.

    Weekly numbers are good and corrected last week’s anomaly of an increase on the scale and erroneous TDEE calculation. Ended up at an avg weight of 174.8lbs for the week for a loss of 3.8 lbs from last weeks false high of 178.6 (which was a 2.1 lb increase). Calories were averaged out to 2280 per day which suggests my TDEE was over 4000 which is obviously wrong, but last week with the increase it came to 1350 lol. Hopefully things will stabilize. I’d guess my actual TDEE to be in the 2600 range or a bit higher if I keep taking walks at lunch.

    It’s going to rain all day here. There was a break in the rain yesterday and I took the kids for a bike ride on a paved river trail for about 5mi. They loved it, so that will be a regular thing now that they are both better in their bikes. Might run to Walmart super early before it’s full of idiots and get some new tires and handle grips for my daughter’s bike and my son could use a 16” instead of a 14” bike. If I get him a new bike I should probably get her one too since they are both rockin bikes we got at Goodwill. Should probably just look for used bikes though, they will keep outgrowing them quickly it seems....

    Got some good sleep last night, but if it’s going to rain all day I’ll probably get a nap anyway today. Have to cook food for the week today, turkey sausage crumbles browned up in a skillet, spicy thighs on the grill, steaks in the broiler and 5-6 lbs of roasted cauliflower in the oven.

    M1 7:00am
    BBQ pork 6oz cooked (8raw)
    400 cals / 38g pro /24g fat

    M2 10:15am (1000c/89p/60f)
    8oz sirloin, 10oz roasted cauliflower
    600c/ 51g pro / 36g fat

    M3 1:15pm (1450c/135p/86f))
    4.5oz spring mix greens, 5oz smoked chkn b, 2oz Giardiniera 30ml vinaigrette
    450 Cals / 46g pro / 26g fat

    M4 5:00pm (2200c/200p/132f)
    10oz fatty trout, 12oz steamed bro-collie -salt
    750 cals / 65g pro / 46g fat

    M5 7pm (2450c/220p/142f)
    Halo top
    250c / 20p/ 10f

    A bit higher calorie than I wanted to be today, will need to burn it tomorrow....

    Meh, put in the work. Lower back was feeling pretty fatigued by the end. I need to get dialed back into my diet, I'm having trouble controlling my intake in the evening and ending up higher than I want to be. I might get a little more "keto" with my macros and see how that works. Its like I'm craving food pretty bad, not terribly hungry just craving food... I made a little progress re-gaining ground with a squat set at 335x5 so I added 10lbs and started working 345.

    Deads were rough today, my lower back was fatigued and I was getting lazy and letting the bar drift forward so just did 2 work sets and cut lunges short. Went heavy on deads last week so not worried although 405x5 is hard. Only did 4 reps first set due to getting out of position. Second set last rep was a bit more of a grinder than I like doing. Diet is getting closer to being done though so just need to keep on keeping on.

    173.4 lbs

    Early start for work today and I’ll be staying a little late too, so won’t get my early morning cardio in. I should be able to get a walk in at lunch though barring any catastrophies. I think I strained my lower back a little on DLs yesterday. Nothing major but my 5fh rep of second work set was a grinder. Should be just fine in a couple days, just a little tweaked.

    I adjusted macros yesterday increasing fats and lowering protein to get back into more of a keto range. It did seem to help. I measured BHB yesterday around .4 mmol/L mid morning so I was still in “dietary ketosis” but the macro adjustment of increasing fat and lowering protein a little seemed to help in the evening keep hunger under control a little better. It was my wife’s birthday yesterday so I got a cake / ice cream etc and lived vicariously through her and the kids .

    I’m going to aim for about 160g pro / 140g fat I think or whatever it ends up to come in 2000-2300 cals / day based on hunger. Not sure why my macros do not match my cals yesterday, it appears I had much more carbs than I did. Made it through the day about where I wanted to be in total cals and protein, which is the main objective.

    * Walk 30 min / 2.25 Mi

    M1 7:00am
    3eggs, 3oz turkey sausge crumbles, 8g olive oil blend butter

    175.4 Lbs

    Little uptick on the scale, maybe heading for a drop, I don't even know at this point. Scale weight has been all over the place. Lower back was an issue today as a result of getting out of position and ego lifting a rep on deads on Tuesday, resulting in a minor lumbar strain. It always amazes me with a minor injury how much that muscle comes into play for EVERYTHING. I'll see how it is tomorrow for legs. It certainly will hold me back on heavier RDLs and squats, but I might just do some light weight higher reps and push some blood flow. I can likely train around it as needed for tomorrow maybe adding in some additional isolation work. Ive had worse, should clear up in a week or so if I can leave it alone and stop trying to crack my back and allow it some rest...

    Session was alright, nothing mind blowing. Subbed DB rows for BB rows due to back, had to be careful picking up DBs. Had to kind of walrus myself off the flat bench on presses since sitting up was a little painful ... I got the important stuff done decently and dropped some sets on accessories.

    Took the day off work to go to the pool but it’s looking like rain. Will see what happens in the next couple hours. Went to the gym but couldn’t do much for legs trying to avoid irritating the back. Did a few sets of paused squats at 135 tried a few other things and did some biceps and called it off. I’ll let the back rest over the weekend and see how it is on Tuesday. Might hit biceps tomorrow, I only did a couple sets because I was trying a bunch of different leg movements.

    Heatwave arrives today. It was pretty warm yesterday afternoon. Took the kids to the pool, and probably do that again. Back is pretty jacked up, I foam rolled it but I’ll need to rest it for a bit and not keep trying to push it so it heals faster. Makes me mad, but it is what it is.

    Sunday 6/17/18 - Father’s Day!

    175.6lbs

    Had a big calorie day yesterday. Numbers were estimated in the evening and I’m not good at that...I filled out though and looked crazy lean by bedtime. It’s going to be near record heat today. I should get some walking or something in. Probably go to the pool again. I won the bodybuilding competition there yesterday (nobody else knew they were competing ).

    Numbers for the week were even no gain no loss at 174.8. Without my refeed yesterday my calories were about 2350/day which seems rather low for maintenance but I have been dieting for a long time. I would need several weeks of stable scale to be sure, I’d think my maintenance would be a little higher around 2500 or so at least.

    I’ll dial things back down today, although I have some awesome meats for the week with some fatty BBQ pork, chkn breasts, grass fed beef burgers, turkey sausage, and a salmon fillet I’ll likely make today.

    Did some cardio / leg work at the old toboggan slides. Legs should be a little sore, it’s been awhile. That might be an option for leg work for a week or so. Back is feeling much better today than it did yesterday. I think laying on a hard chair at the pool helped.

    Had to dial the intensity down a notch today and I swapped cable rows for T-bar rows to keep from aggravating the lower back. I got some decent work in despite not being able to take work sets to the level of exertion I normally take them to. Legs will be a challenge tomorrow. Probably a lot of isolation stuff and light work.

    174.0 Lbs

    Surprised I'm 174 today after eating nearly 3lbs of food for dinner with added salt (was craving salt, sweated puddles on my walk yesterday - 102 heat index). Session was a work around the lower back strain. I tried lots of stuff to find things that I could do to get some leg work in. My legs were already a little sore from the stairs Sunday, and my calves are destroyed from them (sore to the touch). It served as a place holder and I learned a few things that don't work.

    Tried using my dip belt as a hip belt for squats at the dip station where I could stand on the elevated platforms and straddle the plates letting them drop below me, that was going to be my go-to, but with even 2 plates the chains were digging into my hips due to needing to have my feet kind of wide to be on the platforms. So then I was going to use the landmine to do them since it would probably fix the width problem, but I couldn't find two equal height elevated platforms and didn't want to take two of the benches, plus benches would be too tall to get into position on...Tried it with a single metal box but that didn't give me the depth I needed since the bar would hit the box. Ended up doing some lighter leg press which did put some pressure on my lower back, hopefully not too bad. I tried them on Thursday starting with my normal warm up of 360, and my lower back couldn't handle it and the sled slammed down on me to the safeties, which likely didn't help anything in my lower back . Lunges seemed fine and they got me some work. The way I do lunges they are almost like a single leg squat and they seem taxing by 8 reps even with light weight. Finished with some deep, slow, long paused squats just to grease the groove and work on mobility and core engagement. Tried leg extensions but too much pressure on lower back, probably try them Friday single leg style....Back is hopefully on the mend, its not nearly as painful, and 135 on my back for squats felt better than it did Last Thursday. I was going to do light DLs or SLDLs but a single at 135 suggested I wasn't ready for that just yet, just a bit too much pressure on the lumbar to be comfortable with them. Overall it wasn't a total waste of time, and it sure was easier than my normal Tuesday .

    5:05-6:15am / 70 Min /27 sets.

    174.6 lbs

    Evidently at a certain point dieting starts to suck no matter what. I was hoping to be able to come in around 1900-2000 cals/day for the last week or two, but been missing the mark a little due to hunger. I hate trying to get to sleep hungry, it just doesn’t work well for me...

    Early start for work today, so I won’t get my morning cardio session in, but hopefully will get a few miles of walking in at lunch. I think I’ll add another couple days to my vacation and make today my Friday which will have me off work for the next 18 days

    It’s going to be like retirement training . No big trips planned but have a variety of day trips and stuff that we will work in like museums, Lake Michigan beach, camping, visiting my parents, fishing, etc. I think I’ll relax my diet a little over vacation although I’ll probably try to keep it pretty close to maintenance calories (which apparently I’m pretty close to now ....There will likely be a few higher cal days and maybe a meal or two out, and I’d like to be filled out so I look leaner by around the 4th of July for a party. Training will continue as normal of course, and probably still early morning so it doesn’t interfere with daily plans.

    Just gotta suffer through one more day of work, I know it’s going to be a long day watching the minutes tick by until I can GTFO....

    Pretty easy session today, but the lower back injury is healing. I couldn’t unrack 135 last Friday without pain and was able to do sets of 225 today without pain. Tried 275 but it was a little too much compression on spine. Also was able to do some light SLDLs which should help speed the rehab along with some extra blood flow. It was alright overall, kind of de-load session in terms of exertion but that’s okay. Another rainy day here, will probably straighten up the garage and get some meats thawing, a nap, etc. daughter spiked a fever yesterday and seems to have the flu, which is pretty much the norm when I take vacation time the kids get sick and it rains , good thing I like naps .

    Think I’m going to try to get an early morning bike ride in. I’ll probably take my road modified hard tail and ride a paved trail, with all the rain we’ve had the last few days the single track MTB trails would be a sloppy mess. Have a lot of grilling to do today or tomorrow some chkn thighs (bought a bunch on sale yesterday, pork shoulder steaks, some NY strip steaks and going to smoke some wild salmon.

    Riced cauliflower is my new “thing” it is so awesome. I made another head yesterday in the food processor and will be eating it regularly. Goes perfectly with most foods I eat and can be easily seasoned to match my protein source. Easy to manipulate the macros too with some added olive oil or butter depending on the protein source. Great micros and doesn’t make me starving an hour later like actual rice does.

    Sunrise bike ride / paved river trail
    Always forget how enjoyable that is
    60 min / 14 mi

    Sunset bike ride same trail minus last section
    45 min / 11 mi

    175.6 lbs

    Higher cals yesterday with some taste testing of meats while grilling then a pair of cold beers enjoying the patio in the evening. Activity level was through the roof yesterday though. Did yard work, cleaned gutters of house and garage, mowed, and biked (a lot). Was making some final adjustments to my mountain bike I converted for paved use, then ended up taking another 11 mile ride while my wife was putting the kids to bed. I think I’m going to go this morning too. Really enjoying myself just some tunes and zipping down a paved bike trail next to a waterway.

    Numbers for the week look logical. Lost .3 lbs for an avg weight of 174.5 lbs at an avg intake of 2440 cals which puts my TDEE around 2600. Seems about what it should be. I’ll use that as my number for maintenance eating to hunger with lower and higher cal days but trying not to exceed it as an avg daily intake over the next couple weeks. If I’m below it I’m okay with that but won’t be pushing for progress on the diet again until July 9th if I decide I want to take it further.

    No nap yesterday and not enough sleep last night due to waking up early and feeling rested. I bought a hammock for the yard and set up a very nice shaded nap area that I’ll probably take advantage of today. I love not working and can’t wait until I can retire .

    5:45am Early dawn ride (avg 13.6mph)
    55 min / 12.5 Miles

    10:00am Family ride (avg 6.6 mph)

    Going to take the kids into the city today (Chicago) to Maggie Daly Park, the lakeshore maybe Navy Pier and the beach. I hate going downtown, but they will enjoy it. First I’ll hit the gym then grab a shower and breakfast before sitting in traffic and overpaying for parking . Might update with session when I’m done, otherwise later.



    5:00-6:15am / 75 m8n / 43 sets

    Decent session. Lower back is feeling a lot better was able to OHP more and cable row more. Will continue to tread lightly until it’s 100%. Might change plans and go to Indiana or Michigan dunes instead of downtown. Weather going to be good today and sketchy later in the week when we were going to have a full beach day.

    174.2 lbs.

    Lower back is still an issue with higher intensity stuff. I put my belt on and carefully did some squats at 275 & 315 just to see what happens. Normally I don’t put a belt on until 315+. Deads were okay at 225 but 315 was too much pressure. Made up for deads with some BB hypers at the end. Lunges were okay, seemed to work my legs. I tried a few other things like Landmine goblet squats which would be good but hard to load them heavy and get the bar into position. Rain here today, beach was great yesterday. The pupper loved biting the waves and the kids had a blast. Might hit a Children’s Museum today or just relax.

    No, I’m in the burbs thankfully, I avoid the city pretty much when possible . There is a lot to do there, but I wouldn’t mind driving further to get there. Can’t wait to leave IL honestly, not a fan of this state in general. We did the Indian Dunes beach yesterday. It was fun and only an hour drive, it would have taken that long to drive the 12 miles straight east to the Chicago beaches and no dunes, no dogs, more crowded, expensive to park. Liberal city is expensive.

    Kids are crazy. Water was really cold. Even if he dog noped out of there in the morning. He swam later when it got hot out.

    Actually lighter than I thought I’d be considering the bloat potatoes usually give me. Felt more sluggish this morning, but forced myself to get out early for a longer ride on a paved trail. Was enjoyed. Not sure what the plan is today. Kind of a wing it day.

    Do you have any favorite intraride snacks? All of my rides are short enough to where I shouldn't need to eat anything if I've eaten within the last few hours, but sometimes, I feel like I'm gonna "bonk." When I do, I have some hard butterscotch candies that I eat. Being in my hot garage for a few weeks make them fairly soft on the outside with a small center that's still not too hard.

    BTW, I calculate your ride as a 15.9 MPH avg

    Today my inter-ride snack was the massive amount of potatoes I ate yesterday afternoon and hopefully some body fat . Being relatively well keto adapted does have some noticeable benefits for me for longer duration exercise without having blood sugar issues. I was zipping along, experimenting with tire pressure, I ran about 80 psi this morning. It was fast, but could feel a lot more bumps. I just glanced at bike computer might have misread for avg. I only stopped once to look at a map to see if I wanted to do another leg of the trail, but that would have put me over 45 miles and might have been a bit much yet. My ass was sore enough by the time I got back to the car. Didn’t wear bike shorts under my regular shorts, but have a “comfy” gel seat on this bike. Legs feel pretty well worked.

    175.6 lbs (of veins )

    Looking really vascular today for whatever reason, likely partially due to post bike ride carbs. Session was okay, just took it by feel and focused more on muscle contractions than intensity. I pushed a little harder on squats but kept them very tight and controlled since lower back is still limiting factor. I was able to do some sit-ups which made my back hurt just thinking about a week or two ago so it’s healing up. Son is sick with what my daughter had a week ago so today will be daddy daughter day. Likely pool and whatever else we decide. Going to be near record heat with high humidity and a heat index around 110 degrees

    Duuuuuuude. Awesome work in here.

    The bells at PF only go to 75 (I have 90's at home), but I'm sure I'd set the lunk-alarm off with those because I'd have no choice but to drop them

    Haven’t touched the hundos in a month or two. I don’t try to sit up with any DBs. I just kind of set them down after the set. They felt heavier than they should have that’s for sure. Last rep of last set was very near complete failure and really slow. I really wanted to get an early ride in today before the heat, but after a bunch of yard work and a few beers last night I slept in and it was glorious. Woke up super light though, little dehydrated but made it to my goal 170 by July

    Sat 6/30/18

    170.8 lbs (lol probably won’t see that again anytime soon)

    Plan today is to stay out of the heat I guess. Daddy daughter day was fun took the dog to the park, did some shopping for my daughter’s upcoming birthday parties, pool, park etc, then I got some grilling and smoking meat done while doing some yardio late when it cooled down a little. It was still hot and replacing water with a few beers dried me out like a raisin. Need more mulch for a planting bed / seating area I expanded but that’s not happening until the heat wave is over. It feels like a blast furnace outside.

    Sunday 7/1/18
    176.4 lbs

    Numbers were all over the place this week so not of great value, but ended up at an avg weight of 174.9 lbs for a gain of .4 lbs on avg intake around 2675 cals/day averaged out. There were several large water shifts in there, but I’m not worried about it. Going to get an easy bike ride in this morning at sunrise before it gets hot. I don’t think the AC has shut off since Thursday, it’s 80 and humid now, and not even 5am. Might be a pool day today. Yesterday was inside project day lots of STEM projects with the kiddos. Wife built a hydraulic robot arm thing we found at a garage sale with my son. I cut some pvc pipe and bought a bunch of fittings for the kids to build forts etc with. About as good as it gets with 110 degree heat index.
