    what would your ideal training schedule look like with your current job.. saying you were fully motivated, and making it to each session of each kind of exercise? even if it doesn't include the gym, what would your "on point" days include for each day, ideally?

    Honestly, if I could just stick with my current schedule, I'd be fine. I go to the gym Monday, Thursday, and Saturday, and have my ballet class every Wednesday. It's just that I've been skipping days quite a bit lately.

    Day 49: I observed Fat Tuesday by eating a bacon cheeseburger (no bread, of course)...with salad...with creamy Italian dressing. It was delicious. I'm not supposed to be eating dairy protein, but I figure as long as I'm not having it every day like I was, it shouldn't be a huge problem. I did drink more tea than usual today, which helps me curb my hunger and my habitual eating. Then I fell asleep on my bed around 9pm. Just woke up now to take a shower, brush my teeth, and go back to sleep. I must have been really tired! Work was not as busy today as yesterday, but it was stressful.

    Mostly weight training, but not as regimented or heavy as I used to. I have neither the energy nor the desire -_-

    Day 51: Eating habits are still going well, but I still have way too much fat on me, especially on the waist. I'm wearing a size 8 pair of pants today that apparently run small, especially in the waist. Luckily, my skin has been clearing up, probably because I cut out cheese (aside from that cheeseburger on Tuesday). Now, the only dairy products I eat have little or no protein.

    I ate a Quest bar today for the first time since I've been on keto. Hopefully the net carbs aren't too much for me. I'm worried.

    Yes, now 53 days of no carbs, unless that Quest bar a few days ago, and the 3-4 strawberries I had on Valentine's Day, had a few too many grams of net carbs! I actually didn't go to the gym this past Thursday because I stopped at home so then I could go with my mom to the store, then we ended up not going because my uncle made an unexpected visit. However, I'll be going later today, even though I'm currently feeling a bit lazy. I did wake up much earlier than usual on a Saturday since I fell asleep on my bed last night, and got a lot of sleep.

    Oh, and I got my Finaflex package yesterday, and will start using the products today. Thank you so much! I was not expecting to receive all that stuff!



    (The PX Ultra packet is cut open because I had already used it. I'll open the bottle tomorrow.)

    I first took the ALC CLA and PX Ultra today. Didn't notice any adverse effects from either. I did feel a bit sluggish this morning, but felt better once I got to the gym and through my workout, except that my eyes have been bothering me today. That gave me a bit of a headache, but nothing too bad.

    I did take a quick look at the ingredients of some of the supplements. I know I will need to be careful with some of them. I made sure to not have any caffeine today so it would not interact with the PX Ultra. I used ACG3 a few years ago and haven't used a pre-workout since. It gave me a lot of energy, but when I would return home from the gym, I would be so irritable, and yell at my family even for talking to me normally.

    Day 53: Woke up early today, like at 9 or 10am. I usually don't wake up until at least 2pm on Saturdays, lately even later, but I fell asleep on my bed last night and I guess I got a lot of sleep. I went to the gym and had a good workout. While I only did four exercises plus a little cardio, I did more sets than usual. Normally, I will do 3-5 sets of each exercise, but today, I did 7 sets each of squats, bench presses, and Romanian deadlifts. This was actually because I initially messed up and used the wrong weight on one set -_-

    About a year ago, I used to be able to do 5 sets of 5 reps with 145 lbs. easily, after doing a couple of warmup sets. Either I've gotten that much weaker due to an inconsistent routine, or I was tired from all those sets. Here's what I did today with squats:

    15 reps/85 lbs.
    12 reps/105 lbs.
    6 reps/125 lbs. (was supposed to have used 115)
    8 reps/115 lbs.
    6 reps/125 lbs.
    6 reps/135 lbs.
    2 reps/145 lbs.

    While I did a linear weight progression for my bench presses, per usual, I played around with the weight progression for my Romanian deadlifts. I did 60-70-80-70-80-90-80. I was surprised that I was able to do 15 reps for each set! I keep the reps high on each exercise of mine to start, but figured I'd only be able to do 10-12 on the heaviest weight. After all that, I did only 3 sets of the battle ropes, for 30 seconds each. That was not easy!

    nice work out!

    take 2 aclas with each meal. remember to count that as fat calories..

    if you didn't have any issues with the PX ultra.. I recommend using it first thing in the morning, and again in the mid afternoon. 1 pill each time if that works well with no side effects we can increase the dosage slowly as you go.

    more about your diet... do you drink a lot of water? any soda?

    Ah, only 2? Since a serving is 4 capsules, I was taking 4 twice daily, for a total of 8, since it says to take 1-3 doses daily. I've been taking my PX Ultra first thing in the morning, 2 capsules. Maybe I'll try one in the morning and one after lunch.

    I drink a lot of water and tea, and no soda, really. I used to drink diet soda sometimes, but not anymore.

    Day 55: Still doing OK with my diet. My skin is still breaking out a little, but not nearly as badly as it was when I was still eating cheese. Maybe it would completely go away if I cut out all dairy, but I'll need to see first how my skin does with only low- or no-protein dairy for a little while.

    I threw up at work today No food, just a little stomach bile, but I coughed a ton because I needed water. I wonder if it was the turmeric ginger tea that my coworker gave me. After having that, then my usual honey lemon ginseng green tea, I had the worst heartburn and it made me nauseous. Throwing up a little made me feel better. I do like turmeric in my food, but maybe the amount in the tea was too much. Supposedly, turmeric also increases the acidic environment in one's body. Too bad, because the tea tasted good.

    Decent workout today. My hamstrings are still very sore from Saturday, so I mostly stayed off of them today. My ballet class has been switched to Friday (for now, at least), so that gives me another day during the week where I can either go to the gym or relax. I never do anything on Fridays after work unless it's by appointment!

    Day 56: Wow, it's been almost two months since I've been on keto. Sadly, I've still lost almost no weight. I really hope it comes off soon. I was thinking today how whether I've tried losing or gaining weight in the past, it always took such a long time for it to happen, like 8-10 weeks or so! In fact, I used to be able to eat a ton of calorie-dense food and wouldn't gain weight, which now sounds like a dream come true! I've been substituting low-calorie for high-calorie condiments a little more often lately (e.g. hot sauce instead of ranch dressing or sour cream), to see if it helps me.

    I didn't get my afternoon slump after lunch today. Instead of coffee after lunch, I had my Finaflex PX Ultra. I think I prefer having coffee at home with breakfast, and PX Ultra at work after lunch, rather than the other way around. Besides, I only ever drink the coffee at work for energy. It doesn't taste very good! In fact, I plan to keep the whole bottle in my desk at work, and keep just a few pills at home to use on the weekends.

    Gym tomorrow. I'll be participating in small group training. It's been a very long time since I've been to the gym on a Wednesday, so that should motivate me to at least get myself in there.

    ok so yes.. I kinda wanted to break you in with the PX a little slower.. I think 2 in the morning is a lot until your used to it. it could have been too much stimulant when you combined the turmeric and gensing, causing you to vomit.

    if you can handle 4 aclas per meal it is perfectly reasonable to follow that regimen!

    ok so, now, onto the diet.

    there is a reason you have lost little weight and some of your strength. that reason is the low carb diet over a prolonged period of time becomes very catabolic and is very easy to "chase your tail". I would like you to try a "ckd" version of low carb. that is a Cyclic keto diet.
    using this manipulation of a low carb routine we can avoid the classic pitfalls that are caused from ketosis.

    in order to avoid this catabolic state we need to bolster the fat burning process while fixing the muscle wasting via a carb up. using your schedule of lifting on Saturday I would prescribe that you do a carb up after your lift session that day. you would then continue to eat carbs until late sunday. so roughly 1.5 days worth of eating some carbs. we would then do another lift session on Monday... that would leave you with a ballet class on weds and spare gym time on thurs.

    Workouts
    on Saturdays work out you want to eat some fruit prior. during Saturdays session, you would do a full body routine with high reps .. 10-12 for each set.

    on Mondays session you will want to do another full body routine but this time work for strength .. focus your efforts on 6-8 reps per set.

    on Thursdays session you can do just some light ab and calf work, or some low intensity cardio.. nothing to taxing. you will be in ketosis again here so let the body do the work.

    this should stoke up the fat burning process once again for you. and you don't have to have special meals or anything for your carb up. you can have pretty much any carbs you want but I recommend staying away from a lot of sugars. keep track of calories still but give yourself some extra carbs during those 30 or so hrs. don't worry, the insulin sensitivity you earn during the week will serve your body well. u will likely start losing 1-2 lbs per week like you should by just doing this tweak to your program.

    Supplements
    over the carb up is when we should key up the supplements.. starting Saturday.. take px ultra until Tuesday.
    from Monday-Friday use the ALCLA.

    if you want help making a work out that fits this CKD I can help. if you need help building a meal plan around this CKD I can help. if you want to know any low carb tricks or reciepes I can help~

    let me know if this sounds good to you~

    using this manipulation of a low carb routine we can avoid the classic pitfalls that are caused from ketosis.

    in order to avoid this catabolic state we need to bolster the fat burning process while fixing the muscle wasting via a carb up. using your schedule of lifting on Saturday I would prescribe that you do a carb up after your lift session that day. you would then continue to eat carbs until late sunday. so roughly 1.5 days worth of eating some carbs. we would then do another lift session on Monday... that would leave you with a ballet class on weds and spare gym time on thurs.
    Ah, I was wondering why people had carb-ups during ketosis. I guess I could give it a try. However, wouldn't it kick me out of ketosis, and wouldn't it take at least a few days to get back in it? I'm terrified of that prospect.

    with a couple of tricks... one being that heavy work out on Monday will help flush the carbs out of your system quick. you will indeed come out of ketosis temporarily. the reality is that because you abstained from carbs the whole week, you will increase your insulin sensitivity, making it very easy for your body to process the carbs you've had. remember when I said to eat a piece of fruit before the total body work out on Saturdays? that tricks our bodies into flushing any final glucose left in the muscles during the training. this in turn allows your muscles to suck up the carbs you will eat that afternoon and following days.

    now sunday afternoon ..you will eat some simple sugars, in an attempt to cause a "sugar crash" (ie an insulin surge)... this very thing will set you up to return to ketosis in a day or so... trust the plan it works really well! also we can increase the time between carb ups as we go, that will leave you in ketosis for a few extra days at most.

    the take home is that cycling your keto periods is the best and most productive format for losing body fat and sparing muscle tissue which for women is very important.

    Rip' is right on the money with these tips. Being someone who lost 160lbs a few years ago, I know how altering a 'diet' can make you nervous. At the end of the day if you are unhappy with your current results, you should embrace the change and explore it. Excited to see how this treats you!

    Really? Interesting. Well, today was Day 59 and I actually had some carbs. My manager offered me a slice of her personal pizza and was insistent. Luckily, it was small with a thin crust and lots of vegetables. My only method of checking my ketone levels is with the ketone strips, and it still tested positive several hours after eating it.

    Wow, it's already been 2 months since I started ketosis. Still no weight/fat loss. I guess I'll see how the carb cycling works for me. Seems a bit complicated.

    Day 60: I usually go to the gym today, but for some reason I couldn't get myself to leave the house today, even though I woke up earlier than usual. My ballet class yesterday was cancelled, so I haven't worked out since Wednesday! I'll see if I can get myself in the gym tomorrow, despite losing an hour to sleep I still have a cramp in my left calf from yesterday afternoon, so I may be prevented from doing the heavy leg workouts that I usually do on weekends.

    Today I made my usual scrambled eggs and Banquet beef sausage, but also made an easy recipe I found online, called "Caveman's Balls". That's a funny name :P I couldn't find my chia seeds so I used an equivalent amount of almond meal, and only used about half the peanut butter and coconut oil it asks for. I then added a little unsweetened coconut milk to add more moisture. I forgot that sweets containing coconut oil taste a little weird, so next time I will use butter instead. Nevertheless, they are not bad, and very filling.



    I just used another ketone strip, and I have only a "trace" amount of ketones. I hope that small slice of pizza from yesterday did not negatively affect me.

    trust me it only sounds complicated, but it will make a lot of sense after you try it.

    also remember that the ketone strips are a somewhat inaccurate method of testing for ketosis. the fact you show trace is good. in fact you never need to be more than trace ketones for the magic to happen. the deeper purple colors on the stick don't really tell the whole story. also you can easily pee on a stick and show now ketones, even while you are in ketosis! this is because your body uses the ketones for fuel, so there is the possibility you can show no ketones because the body has consumed them for fuel.

    really I want to help you find a balanced approach to CKD that will help you achieve your weight loss goals. we can do this together!!

    Yeah, I was wondering about that. However, since other methods of testing one's ketones are pretty expensive, I figured that while ketone strips are not the most accurate, they're better than nothing.

    Day 61: Well, I've been naughty. I did not go to the gym today. In fact, I woke up super late, at 5:30pm T_T This loss of an hour apparently threw me off. However, this is at least the third time in the past few months that I've done absolutely nothing all weekend: I haven't worked out, left the house, or even showered all weekend I have not changed out of my pajamas since Friday night. Sometimes I just feel like doing absolutely nothing. I don't feel "sad" per se, but "incomplete" and "empty".

    Luckily, I weighed myself today for the first time in a while, and I'm finally under 145. I weigh 144.5 lbs. I wish it could be less, but it's something. I'd love to eventually get down to 135, but with how indolent I have been, I'm not sure if that could happen.

    Day 62: I had some carbs today. I didn't mind it since it was before my workout. I went to my favorite salad restaurant and ordered a salad with panko-breaded chicken and croutons being the only significant source of carbs. It still had plenty of fat. I was starving after work; I inhaled that salad!

    I was feeling pretty unmotivated to go to the gym today, since there's a huge storm coming, so bad that my job is closed tomorrow. However, I figured I'd better just go since there was no snow at all when I left work, and sure enough, it is now almost 10:30pm and there is still none. I actually went to a fitness class at my gym because I could not make myself do much on my own, especially since my head was spinning after a crazy day at work. I went to a Body Works Plus Abs class. It was all right. I may go again.

    Now I'm starving again. I last ate around 6:30pm, and it is now only 4 hours later.

    Day 68: This past week has been hell. I only went to the gym on Monday, and then my ballet class on Friday. Just like last weekend, I haven't left the house nor washed all weekend, and my sleep schedule has been abysmal. In fact, I went to bed at 7am and woke up at 5pm today -_-

    I had a very stressful week at work. The snow day on Tuesday really messed us up, since Tuesday is our busiest day of the week for our drivers as far as doing deliveries. (I work in transportation.) Our partner carriers were also affected from the storm, so it was very difficult to book line hauls, and I needed three in one day! It ended up working out, but by Friday afternoon, I felt so drained and physically ill from the stress. I didn't go to the gym on Wednesday or Thursday because I just felt like doing absolutely nothing after work. It doesn't help that it snowed again on Wednesday as I was leaving work.

    My eating has been OK, I guess. I did have two pieces of dark chocolate on Friday, and one piece of potato, but I think that's all the carbs I've had. I think I've been eating too much protein lately, though. Lots of chicken breast, because I happen to have a lot at home.

    I never thought I'd look forward to a Monday, but I'm excited for tomorrow because we should be back to normal at work, plus I have my personal training. (My trainer was on vacation last week.) Tomorrow is also the first day of spring! I hope we have some kind of spring weather.
