Long night at work. Will update workout tomorrow. Just want to note- CRAZY thermo effect after my workout and was very sweaty during workout. After I showered, i was sweating so bad still, I had to drive to work w the windows fully down in 30 degree weather
I also drank a lot more water today than usual (had about 80-100 ounces from 530-10pm) and increased salt intake per resolves suggestion. I am noticing some extreme veinage going on in my forearms

I interviewed a local butcher and a local organic farm for An article I'm writing and bought all the food and ingredients there today... Some of the most delicious stuff I've ever had (and I grew up with my father owning restaurants and could get whatever I wanted)

I AM SPENT FROM THIS WEEK
Injuries started to add up with my wrist, the scare I had two weeks ago during v handle lat pulls with my shoulder, my knees are very clicky and sore... 6 weeks of solid 5 sessions per week training not missing a single day and actually doing 6 days a week the last 2 weeks...I am READY for this break!
My final VL review remains on the first post. I honestly don't have much to say about the last two weeks with alphamine added in. UNFORTUNATELY I feel as though I have added some BF back AFTER the addition of alphamine. Although I say that loosely as it is most likely water retention.
I KNEW heading into alphamine that I do not respond well to higenamine (after using alpha t2 twice and experiencing extreme bloating). I am not experiencing it to the same level during this run, thankfully, but I know My lack of results is not due to my diet and training- it has to be from the alphamine. If anyone from PES reads this- I am SORRY! I love you guys and every single of of your products... I simply have to conclude I DONT respond well to the higenamine which is the common denominator in a variety of experiments I did to figure out the cause of my water retention which is mostly in belly and face/under chin... I DO LOVE the energy and motivation and mood improvements I have gotten from alphamine, so it will be tough to have to exclude it from my arsenal moving forward. Muscle hardness is up as well- most notably in arms and delts- my two weakest points. I will probably TRY alphamine in the future again to make certain if it is the culprit, but not until after this summer comes and goes lol.
I realize this post is getting gigantic so I'll leave you all with this: THANK YOU AGAIN BPS AND ALSO RICKY (hwd) for sending me vanillean to use and log. I enjoyed posting and interacting with all of you and enjoyed my results! Vanillean has a place on my team of supps moving forward without a doubt! I hope y'all found this useful and / or helpful, or at the very least slightly entertaining!
If I start a new log in the next week or two (in discussions with the head of a company on here) I'll post y'all a link. It's right in line with NON stim fat burners and one I have been very curious about for a while now!
Thanks again, and take care, everybody.
Ps- anyone interested in reading my memoir about developing and overcoming anorexia, supplement addiction/abuse, and obsessive over- exercising- shoot me a pm and I will email you the PDF. I am hoping to get it published to help spread awareness of male eating and body image disorders! And I would love to get some feedback from those who are familiar with some of what we go through!
