    Taman's accountqability/Comback log.


    Greetings AM Community. It is good to be back. Long story short, I am returning from a roughly 6 month medical leave and am almost finished healing but now comes the rehab. My experience left me with what the Doctors say is neurological damage and compromised blood flow in my left leg. During this process I dropped from a solid 270 to a much weaker 243 while sitting in a hospital bed for 22 days. That was 27 pounds of time in the squat rack and dead lifts and rows.....you get the idea, this was not a weight loss strategy I favored. I kind of let the diet go to hell sitting around the house being bored and restricted on activity and shot back up around 290, so that is about a 47 pound swing of fat gain. Got cleared to return to work in early February, cleared to lift in late February with some small limitations. (Primarily can do any upper body work and lower is supposed to be limited to leg extensions and hammy curls which I have been doing more rehab type lifting for. I will not lie, now that my last little bit of wound healing is pretty much done, I have played some on the hack squat and leg press sleds.

    So why am I making this a log. For 2 reasons: 1)The people of this community were an awesome support, encouragement and means of accountability as I dropped down from 322 to 260 starting in Early 2011 (I think). I need that accountability in getting my diet in check and making my training sessions. 2) If I can inspire just one person who also has challenges to overcome, then documenting this is all worth while.

    At this time, I am doing a 3 day rotation of back/chest/back chest/back/chest with tri's bi's, delts and rehab work being the other part of these workouts. I am hoping to start small with cardio and rebuild that (I loved riding my bike and re-establishing the distances and terrains I once covered will be a slow process.)

    Due to some diabetes induced kidney issues, I can no longer pound 280-350grams of protein like I used to, so I am going to shoot for about 2000cals/day, avoiding processed carbs and sugars as much as I can and not be as macro nutrient obsessed as I once was. I used to do IF in the past and will likely return to that, but have not made that jump as of yet.

    Please do note as I start talking plates, weights and reps that I lost a lot being down for 6 months and when I do return to leg work, it will be touch and go with a focus primarily on form, depth and balance. Ultimately, I am only competing against myself.

    Thanks to anyone who tags along. HERE WE GO!

    (P.S. I just realized I mistyped accountability, no need to tell me )

    4/8/13 Chest and Bi's: Five minute biking warm up pre lifting. Felt pretty good but my left foot hates the straps on the pedals! Was one of those nights when the muscle, the music and the metal (iron) all came together for to be really focused.

    BB Bench: (Warm ups Barx10, 135x5) 185x5, 195x5, 205x5

    Inc DB PRess (Focused on bringing the DB's all the way down till they touched my front delts) 60's x12/10

    Standing Alt. DB Curls 30x12. 35x10 (Realized tonight that bicep work bores me)

    Hammer Curl 25'sx12/12

    Wide Grip Straight Bar curl 50x12

    Rehab work on leg press sled, sled only (50#), focused on getting as deep as I could bring it down, 2 legs for 10 reps, left leg only 10 reps, right leg only 10 reps, both legs 10 reps. The disparity in strength between my left and right leg is obvious, what the left finds challenging, the right can easily blow through. Hoping this improves over time.

    Did not track diet today, promise, I will tomorrow. However, I will not be lifting tomorrow as my youngest has a music performance. This weeks schedule will be Monday, Thursday, Friday.

    Thanks man. Appreciate the well wishes. We'll get there, simply because there ain't no quit in this boy!

    Ok, basics for today: Did in fact fast till 12:00 cut it off around 8:30. 1940 cals total intake. Good first day trying to keep it tight. Tomorrow is my late night at work, so I may fast till 2:00 p.m. Once I get the full clear from wound care, I can start morning sessions as I will not need to worry about dressing changes after showers.

    I have done it before, it is not too hard to wait till noon. The main challenge is if my cals are too low for too long I sometimes wake up feeling ravenous in the middle of the night. I love being able to have a bigger meal for break fast. Yesterday it was 14 hotwings and a salad with ranch, totaled about 950 cals but like 12g carbs. "Lunch" was a bag of peanuts and some beef jerky, super was 1oz pretzel sticks and a PB Sandwich on wheat. I know some folks are grain avoidance disciples, but a bit is not too bad provided my daily carb intake is not too high.

    Unfortunately, today's iron session has been postponed by illness, even called off work. Hopefully I will be back up on it tomorrow, go to work then the gym, hoping I can get in a Saturday or Sunday session to make up for it,

    I try to keep it around 100 on off days, don't worry too much about it on lifting days. Since pounding 300+ g protein a day is ill advised for me, I have not been to strict on the macros, just more focused on keeping at a deficit.
