    Thermodex: Rolling strong. Still no black hole and no cravings. Just on this account, I'll be using it again. Upping my water intake has been a blessing. I can tell when I haven't had enough as the dry mouth effect becomes much more noticeable. Focus has been great and has allowed me to push through workouts when my energy levels start to drag.

    Workout: Faster workout today. Not bad but it's not something I like to do. Kept things simple. Couple of new PR's with hamstrings. I've had hamstring issues since high school, playing basketball. Been very cautious when I do add weight or try new exercises with them. It's kind of nice being able to do both the past month. Fingers crossed that those past issues don't pop up as I continue to take things slowly with them.

    Hamstrings can become chronic issues. Tore mine in football and it has never been the same. You know the old days,wrap it and play thru it. I just keep the reps very high and kill them that way.

    Thermodex: Still no sign of the black hole nor are there cravings. Good stuff. Even staying up late to watch Game of Thrones with the wife, I am not jonesing for a bowl of goldfish.

    Workout: Brick wall hit during cardio. Still got 20 minutes in though. Shoulders are feeling really good lately (knock on wood). Best they have felt in months. Left forearm, which I messed up back at the beginning of August, is still giving me fits. Thing is, I don't want to take any time off.

    Reflection and weigh-in tomorrow. I really can't tell if I lost anything this week. We'll see...

    Thermodex: Didn't notice the heat today. Then again, Fall actually arrived today so I was probably keeping myself warm. Dry/cotton mouth still there so the extra water (I know I keep posting the same thing) does help a lot. Diet wise, lunch was a disaster today. I will weigh in tomorrow AM but I think it probably killed any loss. Still, there is no black hole nor do I have cravings. Now at two weeks, my body is adjusting very nicely and the intermittent fasting from 7 to 11/12 is a breeze!

    Workout: Fantastically craptastic! I blame it on a super busy day, having my daughter at work with me for our homecoming rally, and then coming home for a 30 minute power nap before hitting the gym. By no means was I focused, nor did I move the weight I actually want to this week. Surprisingly enough, I did have a good pump and a solid 20 minutes of cardio.

    **Going back to the 4 day rotation for the next couple of weeks. I have a ton of field trips, in-services, and student meetings for the rest of October. It's going to be very busy.

    Fingers crossed that both helped. Going to get a solid night's sleep, down a pot of coffee in the am, and sit on the throne before weighing in. Either way, this week was not bad. Pants feel loose around the waste, all my shoes are loose, and I'm down a notch on my weight belt.

    Week 2 – October 5th

    Weight: 324.2 (+.4)– I’m actually OK with the gain. I’ve broken through the 330 barrier, went down a notch on my weight belt, and my pants feel looser around the waste. Next on my list, to break the 320 wall down.

    Energy: Nothing to brag about. Caloric deficit is definitely taking a toll. Thank the baby Jesus, all 5 lb. 8 oz. of him that coffee exists.

    Heat: There every day but I’ve gotten used to it. Much more noticeable when I start moving around, giving animated lectures, or lifting. Now that fall has set in, I’ll be able to keep myself warm all day, lol.

    Appetite/Cravings: This is where Thermodex is kicking butt. Black hole is not there. The cravings are not there. There is a huge iron curtain that is controlling both. I.F. is a breeze from 7 pm till 11 am/noon. It’s been 2 weeks since I have had a gold fish craving.

    Odds n Ends: Shoes still loose. Vascularity in hands and feet is much more prevalent; starting to see more in my forearms as well. Massive increase in water this week to keep the cotton/dry mouth away. I’m starting to wonder what would stack well with Thermodex. Anabeta might be fun, especially if Therm can control the increased black hole I get when using it. I see a couple of different possibilities which may have to be tried in the next year.

    I'm solo today as well but have a serious "Honey Do" list in front of me and a yard that needs some TLC. Who says pre workouts are only for weights?? Lol

    Thermodex: Little over half way through this log and enjoying things. Body finally has normalized and adjusted to Thermodex. Didn't feel warm today. No dry/cotton mouth. Still peeing like a race horse but the water intake is high and I know there is the diuretic effect going one. Didn't take my second dose until 2:45 this afternoon due to my schedule. One thing I did notice was that my focus and energy in the gym was much better than it has been the past two weeks when taking it at noon. Also, my appetite at dinner was almost nothing. Hell, I ate almost nothing but made sure I got something in me post workout.

    From here on out I am going to start taking my second dose about 8 - 9 hours after instead of 6. It was actually quite pleasant to not want to eat this evening. I'm hoping that the 8 hour split will keep things even more at bay and allow for another big loss this week. Fingers crossed with how busy I am though. End of the first semester is already upon us.

    Workout: Though crappy in a sense of weight I wanted to move, everything felt good. I know I keep talking about shoulders but I am a happy camper right now. No aches, pains, or creaking going on (knock on wood) and they feel stronger than before I messed them up in late July or early August. Energy was good, focus was dead on, BUT pump was totally in the toilet tonight. I cannot say that Jack3d Micro will be something I try ever again... One week in and I am starting over in search for a great pre W.O. ConDense and Prodigy are the next two on my list to try.

    Odds n Ends: Intimidate and Lico will be done by Friday. I'll post up in my weekly reflection what I'll be stacking for the final week of Thermodex.

    Condense and Prodigy both very solid choices. If you want insane agression/energy...Craze brings it.

    Craze had me grinding my teeth when lifting. Need to be very respectful of it. Lol

    What do you mean 200 points on the cardio session?

    Sheet. I keep track of stuff on Fitocrappy & cut and paste for my logs to keep things easy. Seeing how I missed deleting the point values for the cardio, I guess my dirty little secret is out.

    Yep. I always aim for 10. Just allows me to keep track of things in my head for my logs. When I am consciously working at new PR's my numbers will drop but even then I still aim for 10. I just don't believe in a one max rep. If you're strong and powerful, you should be able to rep that **** out... Beastmode style!

    My problem is I am extremely stim tolerant. I pretty much abused OEP without a break since it was released up through the ban. And then there were all the years of ECA abuse prior to that. The past year, I have weened myself off of things so my tolerance has diminished for the better. I know this is one of the major factors in not finding a pre W.O. that has not suited my expectations. Maybe I just need to start smoking crack... Then again, the old fart at my gym was saying how in the early 70's and 80's how his buddies would add a sprinkle of coke to their oils before injecting. Now that sounds like a pre W.O. that might work, lol.

    Ricky - anyone else logging Therm? Just curious on how they're adapting. The longer I am on it, the more I am liking it.

    Day 19: Rest

    Should have been legs but this week is just too hectic. Going to try and squeeze one more trip to the gym in tomorrow... Fingers crossed. Anywho, I did manage to get a ton of yard work done and made the wife happy. With the anniversary this weekend, it can only help.

    As for the day off, it's a good thing. My forearms are feeling burnt. I know my left one is still strained from this past summer... Now the right one seems to be acting up. There's just no way of really giving them a day off unless I stay out of the gym. And not using the 100's will make the manager put them back into storage. I can't see that happen anytime soon.

    Here's hoping for chest and bi's tomorrow.

    Day 20: Forced Rest...

    Just feeling worn down right now. Going to take the next couple of days off, heal up, and hope the batteries recharge.

    Reflection should be up sometime Friday or Saturday.

    Week 3 – October 12th

    Weight: 322.2 lbs. (-2) Well, yea, the shoes… But then there are my pants. Baggier around the waste this week and I mean all my pants. The good news is I have not lost any size on my thighs; it’s been in the gut which hasn’t happened in a very long time. Vascularity has increased in hands, feet, and forearms. I’m starting to see veins I haven’t seen since my early 20’s in my forearms.

    Energy: Decided to take my second dose 8 to 9 hours after my first instead of 6. With that happening, I have a bit more hop to my step in the afternoons. Will continue with this until the bottle is empty…

    Heat: Body has finally adjusted to the additional heat. Then again, fall has hit and we’ve dropped from the 100’s to the mid 70’s this past week. Guess I am keeping myself warm.

    Appetite/Cravings: Been going great. The later dosing also has diminished my intake post workout/dinner. I cannot complain about that. Thermodex has been the best appetite/craving suppressant I can remember at the moment. I love not wanting to eat after 7 pm and still wanting to drink as much water as I can before bed.

    Odds n Ends: I was going to be starting my FRL run this upcoming week but after the lack of drive and energy here the past few days I am postponing everything until I feel balanced again. I think the quick change in weather in NorCal is really messing with me. So I’ll be continuing the Intimidate/Lico stack for the foreseeable future. Disappointed? Yes, though I would rather feel 100% before an 8 week FRL run.

    As for diet, I am going to switch things up to try and get the metabolism stoked in the morning to try and burn a little more off during the day. I’ll still be rolling between 2,000 to 2,500 calories, just ingesting about 400 calories in the AM that includes about 20 grams of additional protein. Basically tossing I.F. out the window since total weight loss hasn’t gotten me past 320 just yet. I like I.F. but feel like I need to try something different before my bottle runs out.

    Nice man I'm glad to see it killing appetite! I'm going to replace a standard caffeine tab with a thermadex for my EC stack! That will be sick! Keep up the great work man

    Day 23: Rest...

    T'was a good anniversary. I need a vacation from the weekend.

    Things still rolling in the right direction. Therm is still holding the black hole at bay as well as any cravings. Yes, I was bad all weekend long but didn't over eat. Just had a sampling of things I haven't had in the past three weeks.

    On another note, forearms are feeling fantastic. The added rest has definitely been something they needed.

    Not sure what this last week has in store for me. I know I am going to be super busy through the rest of the month so gym time is going to be challenging to get in.

    Happy to hear the weekend's festivities were good. Time to relax and celebrate the important things is vital towards keeping things sane! If the gym time gets cut down just try busting out some full body routines.
