Now that we are through Wed of Week 2 I should probably get my Week 1 wrap up done. The days go by fast.
Week 1 went very well. Started the week at 292 in the morning and finished at 286 Sat morning. I stuck to my low carb, high fat diet for the week. Saturday I did a carb up day. Since we had plans to go out and eat Sat night I did not do a structured carb day. I just make sure I ate about 100g of carbs with each meal. I took in about 500-600g of carbs Sat with the free meal. For me it doesn’t take much which is why I function very well on a low carb/high fat approach. Sunday morning I gained 2 pounds back so I started week 2 at 288. My first goal is to come down to 275 and see where I am at. I am off all hormones so that I can get my blood work done here in another week from today. I stopped those last Sunday.
Week 1 training went pretty well. I do well with high fat. I actually have better training sessions and progress that way which sucks becasue you want to eat more carbs but I just at this point know what I have to do. But I can get stronger when I go to this approach.
FRIDAY was Chest and Shoulders
