Push day. Massive strength jump. Hit 405 for 2 on bench. Weight was 278 this AM. Eating like a champ. No sugar..no junk at all..just chicken, beef, rice, veggies, pasta, hot sauce, eggs, cheese...cut out bread. Going to add kidney beans to each meal. Eating 6 to 8 meals a day. Training at least 2hrs balls to walls with the weights and another 45 of cardio daily. The added muscle size is very obvious...feels good to be on the path back.

90 mins of heavy pulling exercises today. Felt great. Have 4 meals of chicken rice and veggies down so far. Did some volunteer work today..I always enjoy that. I had the opportunity to work with a group of students with special needs...very rewarding. Spent some quality family time..good day. Got the stink eye when I brought my own food to dinner at my sister's...they know Im nuts though.

Today was an off day. So lots of cooking and grocery shopping. Good vids on youtube for eating on a budget. Really, chicken, beef, pork, rice, pasta, eggs, cheese, coffee, veggies...thats really about it. Meal prep probably twice a week. Over the last week or so, I flipped the switch into full OCD mode and now I am carrying my food with me eveywhere I go again. Im training over 2hrs 6 days a week..thats including cardio. Hey, if you are going to do it...might as well go all out, then youll never have to wonder what you could have accomplished. I have a 45min bus ride followed by a 1 mile walk to get to my gym. I eat a meal on the way there. I train. I have the same deal coming home. I also eat another meal on the way home. The moment I walk out my door, my bluetooth is in and music is on and shades are on. I dont speak to anyone..not at the gym either. What someone else may call an unhealthy lifestyle is healthy to me. I see my GF on Sat and go to church with my friend on Sunday, other than that, Im in a box..focused.

Dont get me wrong, when I have time, I enjoy volunteering..if I can..I have some personal issues that make it very difficult for me to do a great many things that I would like to be able to do...but hey..we all got our own mess right?

Good job bro, if I had 45 mins bus ride and a mile walk just to get to the gym, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't ever go. Dedication for sure.

290 this AM. Sleep is sucking hard. Bed is soaked in the morning. Cardio is like climbing Everest. Going to look into that GW. Want to take some progress pics, but Im too big for my bathroom mirror now...so I need someone else to take them. Strength gains have been insane. I guess muscle memory is a real thing...lol. But damn have I been eating...you guys have no idea. Probably 4 lbs of animal protein a day..about 4000 cals and 1000 carbs a day...thats 4000 cals right there, plus a shake...so Im somewhere between 7k and 8k in cals a day with 2.5 hours of balls to the wall training 6 days a week. There is something sooo wrong with me...lol. Carbs are rice or pasta. Protein is beef, chicken, or eggs,...Im eating almost nothing else...some veggies when I feel like cooking them. I read that eating is the hardest part...so true...this sucks so bad.

Arrgh..food is beating my ass today. I dont know how those guys keep at it..meal after meal after meal. Like brian shaw...how? Im only 4 meals in and im really pushing it. I trained super hard and heavy today..lots of negatives. Felt like I was going to puke for hours after training. Appetite never came back. Going to rest tomorrow. Pretty sure I blew out my circulatory system...I need to recover hard for a day. Couch carbs and protein.

Just some easy cardio today. Going to walk a few miles around the park and listen to the news. Going low carbs and cals today. Was doing some reading about carb cycling. Like in a week just rough numbers 600, 300, 200, 200, 100, 100, 600. Anybody ever tried such a venture. Of course Id keep protein at about 500 or so. I think Im cool with the weight. BP is still good, getting bloods next week...but 290ish and leaner now...I think is doable based on my pics.

Yes. Loss of cardio is significant. GW is something I have been looking into. However with so many sources, its difficult to find someone who is offering legitimate products.

Today was a rough one. So sore. Just crazy aching joints. Had my iron and hemoacrite checked they were both slightly elevated. Dr said I was likely was very dehydrated during training. Didnt really accomplish a lot in the gym. Was there about an hour and managed about 12 sets or so on bench. Spent a good deal of time BS with a retired 82 year old former powerlifter...awesome dude..still killing it. Spent the rest of the day hydrating eating green stuff and chicken. Shoulders and wrists are still hurting pretty bad. Took 800 of IBU...like throwing sand on the beach. I had back surgery × 2 in 2005 and thats been causing me some discomfort as well. Tomorrow is pull day. Pull day never hurts as much as push. Probably just do high reps and hit cardio harder. Broke 3 bones on the scale this AM. BP is fine..thanks DC. Bloods are good. No sides. Some lethargy, but I believe that is from an unrelated issue.

I've only been on it 4days but I'm starting to notice a difference. Going to start hitting cardio hard next week sprints heavy bag burped see how it goes.

One thing that helped my cardio alot when I was still fighting was corydeceps probably spelled that wrong
