    Looks like it was a Typo. I am seeing 63 to 65 average as a resting heart rate right now. If I almost fall asleep in my chair it will go down to 58 bpm.

    Is that better or am I still in a area that I should have some concern about?

    Nah, thats a lot more reasonable. High endurance athletes hit those low 50s kind of numbers, 60s are much more common

    Next weigh in should be Day 19. I have to quit getting on the scale everyday because I am up and down, up and down. I am sure its all in water weight but I keep centering new weights so I know I am going down.

    Hopefully my laptop will be fixed Monday so I can get back to the detailed logs. You would think an IBM T41 could work with no issues after being dropped 5ft on the concrete... : )

    Hey great progress so far and the detail of the log has been top notch. I am real excited to see your progress!! I am hoping you see substantial weight loss while maintaining muscle mass or gaining some!!! I know you have been asking for some additional sup advice here are my two cents:

    weight loss supp that would stack well: Dicana or a sesamin based product.. both stack great with leviathan

    muscle builder that wont add fat and allow you to train loger and harder: I would go with either a bulk Beta-alanine sup or you could use Incarnate. We have had a ton of people cutting who use Incarnate with Leviathan and get great results.

    Just my two cents on the supps..I would like to see some other people opinions as well!!!

    Will do. I much rather have the weight/fat loss than the few minutes of Potato pleasure. Got on the scale this morning and I am back to 257... Whats the deal??

    Think about it... if you have an extra few glasses of water, or you are retaining water or a big meal... you will weigh more.
    Just be patient and dont judge weight loss by a scale necessarily.
    1 gallon of water = 8lbs
    2 glasses of water = 1lb
    it can all add up quickly.

    judge weight loss by how your clothes feel...


    also...looking at your diet.. you may want to try less or zero carbs after 5pm. Carbs are a main energy source and taking them later at night can be problematic to some people. Its all about figuring out what works for you!

    Yeah, what dave said A fluctuation of as much as 3-4 pounds in a 2 day period isn't unrealistic. Its charting the overall loss over a long period of time that is important.

    look at the attached pic. If the red dots are the daily (or weekly) weights, it doesn't matter whether one measurement is up or down from the last, so long as the trend is downwards. That 8 pounds from one gallon of water can be non water based - just to prove that, take 1/4 cup of psyllium husks one night, and drink as much water as you can. The damn things will bloat up your intestinal tract and hold at least 4 pounds of water with it. Rather, don't try this, cause I did by accident, and it sucks, damn cramps all night, it was nasty. But a swing of up to 5 pounds either way isn't crazy (and our scales aren't 100% accurate either)

    Day 20 - Leviathan Log (Going by Fast!!)


    I have bitten off more than I can metabolize with a tiling job at home. I have ripped up 75 sqft of ceramic tile and am currently working on getting the tile glue up (thinset). This is a workout in its self. Thats why I have a hole in my log from Day 15 to Day 20. But I am continuing to maintain my daily regiment and are still seeing results.

    Yesterday I had to wear my suit and its WAY to big in the waist now. Last time I wore it was a month ago and it was big but not too big. My every day belt has been worn on the last notch for sometime now. I need to send it back to the manufacture to have a few more holes popped in it and maybe some trimmed off the end.

    Anyway here is Day 20, with a new weight included.

    Day 26 - Leviathan Log (MAJOR Progress)


    My logs have slacked off do to a large tiling project that I have undertaken at home. I have not been able to hit the gym because of needing to go home at 5pm, working to midnight, to attempt to get it knocked out.

    However, this tiling stuff is not for the meek. Its giving me the workout that I am missing in the gym. Except this is full body, for several hours at a time.

    Regardless, I have been making some SERIOUS progress... I am not going to spoil it today. You have to wait until Day 29, thats right, this Friday.

    BUT I GUARANTEE YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!

    I can tell you this!! I weight less now than I did on my last log entry! I do not want to jinx myself but I believe I have pushed thru my plateau with the help of LEVIATHAN from PAL .

    So for DAY 29 I will have:
    • NEW PICS
    • NEW Weight
    • NEW Measurements


    I am looking forward to sharing this with the community and will give some updates between now and then.

    Thanks again for the support!

    Cant wait til friday bro!!!...It is crazy how changing things up (ie. tiling) can help mix things up a bit. Helping build a house earlier in the year killed me, but in a good way. Very excited about your progress dp, and looking forward to firday!

    Energy:
    Good Solid Energy. Pushing energy. Hard to explain but I will try. Say your energy is a full glass of water. Throughout the workout the glass begins to empty. As it does something is filling it with a replacement. By this I mean its not one of those bounce off the wall energy burst but at the point that you think you are going to give out you get a boost that last. Case in point, I was down 12-0 in Racquetball, but I came back to win 15-13, just seemed something kicked in.

    Sleep:
    Sleeping VERY good. Mother in Law said that I do not snore anymore.

    • To Sleep: 10:30pm

    Pretty sore the past couple days from getting back in the gym. Nothing too bad... If you cannot feel it, it isn't working!!

    Day 34 - Leviathan Log


    Started "Fasted Cardio" this morning. I am taking the same route as our evening walks, which is 2.3 Miles. On the walk its taking my wife and I 34 minutes to complete. This morning I did a bit of a Walk/Jog Interval. I used waypoints to determine my Jog starts and stops, was a bit dark and hard to see the watch. I set a goal to have it finished in 30 Minutes or less. Time this morning was 29:05 minutes. During the walk I was thinking of maybe using a weighted backpack to add some resistance. I might try that in the morning.

    Questions:
    1. My BCAAs should be in shortly. With starting the Fast Cardio what is the recommended dosing for this? I have read some comments about taking some before the Fasted Cardio then some during the FC. Any Suggestions?

    Questions:
    My BCAAs should be in shortly. With starting the Fast Cardio what is the recommended dosing for this? I have read some comments about taking some before the Fasted Cardio then some during the FC. Any Suggestions?
    I'm doing BCAAs before/during/after on both cardio and strength days, about a total of 20g a day. I'd say definitely 5g-10g pre/during is worthwhile, more than that is harder to say. The bulk is hard to get mixed into liquids, don't be surprised at that.

    I've noticed my own weight loss seems to be accelerating here at the tail end, i'm a little surprised really, but happily so as I hadn't quite been reaching my goals the whole time.
