    Slight uptick in scale weight, water I'm sure. Decent session, shoulder continues to feel more stable and I'm starting to cautiously load it a little more. Hopefully if I'm careful it will continue to improve.

    Got in and put in some work. Wasn't very systematic in my approach, kinda trying to feel my way into a good spot with working sets with the little strength loss I'm dealing with. I guess 335 feels okay on squats, guess I'll start around there and work up... Deads meh, after squats they suck, I'll have to acclimate myself to them and find a way to get myself jacked up for them, pretty much just tugged at the bar today...

    getting leaner, gonna be looking good for my "Daddy daughter" dance with my 6yo in a few weeks .

    A little higher on protein and lower on fat today. Will likely adjust a bit tomorrow. Main goal is to hit minimums though, and to not be starving all day, so all is well.

    201.6 Lbs

    Big drop on the scale, likely to bounce up a bit due to water fluctuation/sodium intake. Hard to say what my "walking around" weight would be right now, judging by my abs probably around 208ish when not depleted due to glycogen and corresponding water. I should definitely hit 200 on the scale by mid Feb though. Went in for some cardio and shoulder rehab and it was decent, feeling great.

    Ticker Time on the Treadmill (4-5 incline /4-4.1 mph)
    60 Min / 4.1 Mi / 700 cals

    202.4 Lbs

    Decent session, made some progress on DB presses, since my shoulder seems to be rapidly improving. Not sure if its related to being on Keto like diet or whatever else but seems coincidental that within a month of increasing my fat macro it is rapidly improving, happy about that after essentially a wasted 9 months of training. After my hard work, I did a bunch of volume, not that it was all that meaningful, but I was really enjoying my time in the gym today. I continue to feel great, despite being in a steep deficit and fat is just falling off of me. It is getting to the point now where the changes are coming faster which is always fun, and motivating.


    Didn't do biceps today, I'll start doing those on leg day with abs, so I have stuff to do between leg sets instead of just thinking about how much I hate training legs

    Ticker time meaning good for my heart aka ticker

Finding it very enjoyable both in food choices and how I feel and how easy it is to maintain a deficit without my wife wanting to strangle me in my sleep. Things are going well, cannot express how happy I am that my shoulder is improving, I was starting to just accept that it was fuked permanently, and that made me a little sad and usually frustrated.

    Went in and put in my reps on legs, sprang a leaky nostril on my third set of squats, likely because its so cold and dry, not too much blood though just a few drips. I'm actually surprised I'm not bleeding right through my skin eating 32g of fish oil with my delicious fatty salmon for dinner. I've read that Eskimos that eat their traditional (keto) diet of primarily cold water sea life have a much higher rate of bleeding to death from traumatic injury due to their blood being so thin from all the fish oil...

    200.4 lbs
    Weighed 2 hours later than normal, so that accounts for a few more ounces of water loss.

    No big plans for the day, or weekend for that matter, it’s going to be cold and windy today and snowing tomorrow.

    Might go to the gym and get a little cardio in since I’m only doing it on Wednesday with my current upper lower split. Grabbed another fresh salmon fillet, looking forward to that.

    200.4 lbs (normal weigh-in time)

    Numbers for the week are good, average weight for the week is 202.06 for a loss of 2lbs from last weeks average of 204.14 at an average daily intake of 1875 cals. Next week looks like it could be a big scale loss considering I seem to be holding at just over 200 now.

    I usually stick at 200 a bit, but I don’t see that being the case unless I change something. What’s really weird is my maintenance was around 2500-2600 @ 205-210 range, and according to consistent scale loss my TDEE has actually increased to 2800-2900 which is absurd, 3000 cals is dreamer bulk territory for me. I can only guess that based on how I feel my hormones were tanked a little from running fats too low, and my NEAT has increased, because I have a LOT more energy.

    Anyway it’s good stuff, and I’m enjoying it. Weight belt for heavy squats/deads is down 3 notches to the smallest hole, and considering how easy this is, I’ll be drilling another hole or two or ordering another custom belt from “Best Belts”. I will eventually introduce more carbs, primarily added veg, but I can see myself easily staying pretty lean like this because FOR ME, it is long term sustainable. Usually by the time I approach 10% BF range I’m so burned out and feel crappy I’m just done with dieting. I’m not there yet, upper abs are getting there but lower stomach fat hangs on until the end. I don’t think it’s going to be too hard on me to get pretty lean the way things are moving right now. Hopefully I’ll continue to regain lost ground as well on presses that declined from 9 months of a shoulder issue, since that is rapidly improving.

    The snow is arriving a little late today, starting now, hopefully will come down hard and heavy so we can get the kiddos out sledding. Also need to restock whey supply since vitamin shoppe is having BOGO 1/2 off sale on their house brands which pretty much matches ON in everything I see. I like having whey on hand and the easy on the go of just add water to shaker cup of whey, milled flax seeds and whatever else I throw in there...great for post WO meal on the go when I have a busy morning at work and don’t have time to make a meal.

    LOL not today, had a little uptick today, but that just means another drop is coming, looking leaner, feeling lighter. Ya by my math I should be in around a 750 cal/day deficit, but that obviously fluctuates to some extent. Its still cold here so my TDEE will increase a little in the spring when I am a little more active and can get outside at lunch for walks etc, which should coincide with my TDEE dropping due to being lighter.

    Thanks, glad it’s helpful. I’m obviously not doing “keto” exactly, since I am running my protein percentage higher than traditional keto diets, but the main point of my macros and dropping carbs is for satiation. Carbs make me hungry AF. It’s working well for me though so far, finding it much more comfortable to eat at a deficit without being viciously hungry.

    The mushrooms are really fast and easy.
    I heat up a serving of butter (I’m using a butter olive oil blend - it’s real butter whipped with olive oil so it’s soft and is 90 cals/10g fat for 14g.

    Heat the butter in skillet medium heat. Crush a few cloves of garlic in there (or a teaspoon or so of crushed). Let the garlic cook a little (1-2 min) then dump in mushrooms (6oz max per tablespoon/14g of butter) and stir them around with no lid on skillet until cooked. I usually add some salt and herbs toward the end of cooking. I cook them around 5-8 minutes I’m guessing, pretty much until they look “done” and some of the moisture evaporates.

    They go great with steaks or about anything. They tasted even better before I used all of our dried basal and oregano from the garden, now I just toss some Italian seasoning in there with salt.

    Ya I don't have an "End goal" per se either. Better than the year before is usually the goal, and that shouldn't be hard, since last year sucked with the shoulder issue. The way this is working though, I could see myself getting pretty lean, no reason not to if it isn't negatively impacting my mood and "quality of life". Hard to say how I'll feel about that once I start getting to around the 10% range though, guessing things will change a little by then...

    3 notches on the belt is a ton of loss already. When I am lean I get down to my last hole on the belt but never had to drill one out yet. Just makes it
    Ya I'm so thrilled the shoulder is getting better finally, its still a little sore after a day like yesterday but its doing MUCH better. LOL I don't think you need any diet modifications when you diet, jeez the fat just falls off of you. Your looking lean in vids still while eating and training for a meet, so I think you are pretty well dialed in on your food intake. Last hole is still plenty snug for now, so I have a month or so before I need to get the drill out. Keep in mind I ordered my belt when I was pretty fat(ter).

    Pretty much, It's dark out when I leave and come home. No yard work to do other than a bit of snow shoveling and salting which Jacque usually has done before I get home anyway. I just come home and shower and veg until my bedtime around 8pm .

    Hopefully by summer I'll be back to working 275 3x5 without slingshot, and slingshot will be for 315 and up only. Its a fun tool for a little overload on the triceps though.

    200.6 lbs

    Going to miss my Wed morning cardio sessions the next two weeks for some early starts at work ( scheduled the days so they wouldn’t interfere with my lifting split). I’ll Probably try to get some walking in for sure on those days. I’ve been bogged down with too much office work which doesn’t allow me as much field time and NEAT.

    Supposed to have about a foot of snow by the weekend, which will be great for getting the kids out for some sledding etc. I’ll probably bring a backpacking stove and cooking kit to make them hot chocolate, I wonder how hot chocolate whey would be for myself . I should be seeing a drop on the scale soon I’m guessing.

    Glad I'm not alone, ya 455 pulls were pretty hard, third rep was just below the knee and I set it down, might have grinded it, but second rep was RPE 9.

    Trying to hold my ground, decided to drop down a little on squats and work reps instead jumping from 315 to 365 since 365 seems like a bit much at the moment for work sets. Hoping I can slowly work back up as my Deficit decreases itself. Scale has been stuck just over 200 for nearly a week, should break that 200 barrier soon though.

    Thursday 2/8/18
    200.6 Lbs

    Pretty good session. Decided to bring my dip belt and a junky Oly DB handle I picked up at a yard sale or something (left that POS at the gym so I don't need to lug it back and fourth) and bumped up my DB rows and added weight to pull-ups. Using versa grips from the start on weighted pull-ups to avoid any elbow issues that I have had in the past from them. Bumped DB bench up, shoulder was a little "clicky" at first but seemed okay after warm up sets. 95s felt like a big jump though, and I'll be working those for a few weeks I'm guessing before I can make it to the end of the rack. First half of the session was the work and the second half was pretty much fluff, but it was fun nonetheless, kind of the reward for the hard work, and some added shoulder re-hab. picked up 20s to try for laterals and they were too much on the left shoulder, but considering I couldn't lift the weight of that arm without pain for a long time, 15s will be just fine for now. Haven't done hex press for awhile due to shoulder, they were okay but triceps were burning out and I didn't have the necessary MMC to get them to work well, likely try them again and try to get the feel for them back...

    There it is, broke the 200lb barrier! Work got called off at about 4am due to the snow storm, so I’m sitting on a 4 day weekend! Unfortunately daddy daughter dance is canceled as well but daughter isn’t too upset, it will be rescheduled and we have snow to play in. Took it a little easier in the gym, dropping a set on RDLs and leg press just because I felt good enough, and I’ll be shoveling and climbing sledding hills today so don’t need to be wrecked. Should have screaming TDEE today .

    Gym was empty. I was alone until about halfway through. Lifted 4Runner is like tank.

    Nice. Well it’s about those temps here in Fahrenheit. And snowy. I know a few people in your area actually. One who is an MD stopped by my house last year when he was in for a medical conference. We hit a squat session in my home gym, ate wild game I killed and drank beer. I would fit in with bushman down there I think .

    Saturday 2/10/18
    199.4 lbs

    Plan for the day is some sledding, and probably take a ride out to our hunting/fishing property to check up on my boats and let the dog run free for awhile. Doggo is loving the snow, he can finally dig without pissing me off . Maybe be he can pull the kids around on a sled. Wear him out and I won’t have to trudge up hills

    * Snow is deep and sucks walking through, dog and kids had fun. Stopped by the store and grabbed stuff to make jardinière, and also scored some great deals on hot Italian sausage and a bunch of fresh herb covered tilapia fillets all approaching sell by date. Will freeze 5 packs of sausages and keep a few down to cook and probably eat my weight in fresh tilapia later .

    M1 7:00am
    4 eggs, 5 strips of bacon. 2g Fish-oil.
    500 cals / 37g Pro / 38g fat

    M3 4:00pm (1550c/155p/92f)

    Sunday 2/11/18
    199.6 lbs

    Weekly numbers aren’t too bad. Ended up with an average weight of 200.23 for the week for a loss of 1.83lbs from last week’s average weight of 202.06 on an average daily intake of 1990 cals/day. 2lbs per week would be a little fast now probably so I’ll be happy with 1.5-1.75 for the next 4-6 weeks.

    Great day yesterday. Made 9lbs of jardinière, (5.8lbs veg, two 16.9 oz bottles of olive oil and a 16.9oz a bottle of apple cider vinigar) looks like about a two oz serving will net a serving of olive oil but I better do that math again with something that calorie dense. Smells really good, it needs to sit for a day or two but might use some today. Fingers are raw from peeling garlic and it was a lot of knife work cutting everything up really small.

    Might hit the gym for a cardio session or just plan on more sledding taking care of it. Got a few more inches of snow last night. I’m done shoveling though, it will melt at some point.

    Cardio LISS treadmill incline
    60 min / 4.15mi / 715 cals

    M1 8:30am
    8oz herb & garlic tilapia, 2.4 oz homemade jardinière (wow! Amazing)
    350 cals / 44g Pro / 18g fat

    M2 11:30am (950c/100p/64f)
    6oz beef tip roast shred, 4.4oz jardinière
    600 cals / 46g Pro / 46g fat

    M3 3:15pm (1425c/151p/91f)
    4oz chkn b shred, 1 gourmet Italian sausage, 3oz avocado
    475 cals / 51g Pro / 27g fat

    *Hour of shoveling and tossing the kids into snow piles.

    M4 5:30pm (1975c/219p/118f)
    12oz garlic herb tilapia, 3oz jardinière, 3oz spinach salad with apple cider vinaigrette

    200.2 lbs

    Decent session, didn’t feel very strong on bench today, it was a struggle to match reps, but they were hard last week too. Got some decent volume in though and punched the clock. Bumped B.B. Rows that was a plus.

    Will be eating some tilapia for the next few days. I got 1/2 off some fancy herb and garlic fillets. They are outstanding and not being able to pass up a good deal I bought them all. So I’ll eat them...made some lean beef stew meat in the crockpot yesterday too it looks awesome. Lots of homemade Giardinera with olive oil to eat too, so that will be a staple as well. It’s really good.

    Back down today .

    Yea flower pots are very low cal and full of minerals

    Actually I just cant spell for $hit and just let autocorrect fix it to what it thought, It should be Giardiniera. Its diced veg and peppers in olive oil. I put cauliflower, jalapenos, multi colored sweet peppers, carrots, celery, garlic and green olives in it. Its addicting, but

    You'll be back below 200 soon ... I do worry about eating fish though when you live 1000 miles from the ocean
    And benching sets @ 245 still looks plenty strong to me!
    Yea shoulder is doing better its still a little sore but I'm beating on it pretty good, keeping the blood flowing with laterals etc. Its not as much of a limiting factor on bench really at this point, I am more careful in regard to form, but have lost some strength too. It'll come back. Ya dog is a nut, he's high energy, I wish he'd stop eating stuff that isn't food..... Fence turned out pretty good for a weekend project, had to make a jog in it to match the driveway angle. It was going to go straight, but I kept hitting my electrical conduit that feeds garage, so I had to adjust a little. Probably looks great from your house . Yea the fish was their fresh never frozen, no fish smell so pretty fresh hopefully. It had taken a journey to get to me, but half price and no stomach ache yet

    Big drop on the scale, will likely bounce back up some, water fluctuation. Long work day today, with early start and staying late, but will be banking some double time off, so that’s a plus. Will miss cardio day, but will get some walking in anyway.

    198.6 Lbs

    Decent session gained a couple reps on DB bench and they felt a little better than last week. Bumped LM presses up a nickel for a couple sets, gained a rep on weighted chins but hammer and pull-ups remained the same. Overall decent session, considering I was woke up to the dog throwing up one of my daughters socks at about 2:30am not sure why he feels the need to eat random things, or jump on top of me to regurgitate them, maybe he has some bird DNA and he's trying to feed me ...

    Yea, I am thrilled with the shoulder feeling better, it sucked trying to work around it for 9 months. Strength is slowly coming back despite the deficit so that's a plus. I still get some pain in certain ROM like putting on my coat or when my arm is extended back, but its feeling pretty stable now on flat presses.

    Always strong day when you can get heavy squats and deads out if the way

    Ha ... love the idea of the dog giving you a Valentine's Day gift of regurgitated socks : p
    And I'm with Mark ... great job on the DB benching and you make getting in to position look so easy and then go and rep those with such perfect range and form. Good work for the shoulder when you can get it
    I've done a lot of construction type work when I was young working for contractors building houses etc, so I have a few rusty handyman skills I specifically search out the old food . I always buy deals on meat when its marked down and just freeze it in the giant deep freeze. I'm almost at capacity now, I had to stock up due to the deer not cooperating during deer season. Got the squats done again today, and done for the week. This dog is something else great with the kids and very protective though so that's a win.

    Cruising along, I missed a lot of months of pressing, enjoying some progress finally even though I am just regaining lost ground. Should be on track to be pretty lean by the time summer rolls around.

    And not only are you squatting heavy volume twice a week you're throwing in either heavy deads or RDLs on the same day, so plenty of work being done in here Tim!
    Lately I’ve become an expert at assembling very large LEGO sets, but some of my home projects turn into nightmares. Persistence and spending more than it would have cost to hire a professional usually results in getting them finished . I had to dig the post holes with a long crow bar to break up the rocky clay and scoop tiny bits out with a post hole digger, I was hating life during that project. All so we could let the new pup out on his own to destroy the yard and landscaping. Going to a two day split instead of full body is letting me get a lot more leg work in, nice change of pace.

    Nothing at all, I hate them legs are a little sore today, which is very rare. First set at 315 seemed the worst, I was really trying to justify not doing 3x8.

Wife and sister are supposed to take the kids to the zoo today around noon, I might sit that one out and take a nice long nap . Chopped a bunch of veg to make another batch of Giardineria it’s in brine now and will drain and add the seasonings and olive oil. Going to make some with fresh cilantro, it’s gonna be good.

    Awesome! Sounds like an exciting summer ahead. Sturgis would be an awesome thing to experience, I had a modded up Harley for awhile. Sold it and my XR650 street legal dirt bike just before my daughter was born. I’m sure no matter what you decide for the comp it will go well. I’d imagine trying to diet during vacations would take some of the joy out of the trip (at least for me).

    Sunday 2/18/18
    196.8 lbs

    Woke up at my normal weekday time probably get a nap at some point today, just because I can.

    Not a bad week at all on paper. Average weight for the week was 198.1 lbs for a loss of 2.1 lbs from last weeks avg weight of 200.2 lbs. Average daily calories were nearly identical at 1990 cals/day which indicates my TDEE is still in the 2900-3000 range which is a few hundred calories higher than normal for me, interesting.

    I was more precise tracking the macros and calories of the batch of giardineria than last time and the numbers are pretty close to what I was using. 2.8oz serving is 150 cals/15g fat. I went a little lighter on the garlic and added way more jalapeños and also cilantro. I was noticing a little garlic smell coming out of my sweat, great for keeping vampires and people away at the gym .

    Going to take the crazy pupper to the dog park this morning and let him wrestle around for awhile. He came really close to getting one of the rabbits yesterday, he was just going a little too fast to make the cut and slammed into the bushes, then the kids trampoline, he is insanely fast agile but the fresh wet snow through him off .

    He almost caught a bird in flight the other day love it when my wife forgets to turn off the Arlo before he goes out. I get lots of random vids of him pushed to my phone. Always entertaining.

    A bigger back will make a bigger waist look a little smaller....

    Yea things are moving along well right now, I expect it to slow down some soon, but so far it’s been relatively painless eating at this steep of a deficit and I haven’t seen too much in regard to negative effects in the gym. Normally 2200 is my “spot” when I’m eating carbs, and I’m usually hungry and crabby frequently between meals. I feel good steady energy eating like this, and an additional benefit is not being a slave to bringing food or a shake with me everywhere because if I’m an hour or two past a normal meal time for me, I can just deal with it without being hangry. It’s nice, wife approves

    Great day in the gym, no time constraints since I’m off work today. It started off a little slow but built momentum and felt like I could have just trained all day today. Bench was same number of working reps but got 5 on my second set instead of 4 but lost a rep on the last set. Made some progress, felt energized leaving the gym. Last few exercises just because I really didn’t want to be done.
