#1784

Update:

Down to 179. Noticeable definition pretty much everywhere. Finally. Lol. A lot in my legs and in my upper back. Which I’ve honestly never had before lol. Most of the fat that’s still around is in pockets. So within some months of getting back into the swing of things, I’ll shift focus to more conditioning.

Strength is coming back. I’ve ditched calorie counting and dove straight into intuitive eating. A lot easier since I rarely have time to do certain things I want. Carbs in the morning and afternoon, protein and certain veggie choices at night. Very vague approximation of total calorie intake is around sub 1,200 calories.

I’ve been able to get away with such low calories probably because I’m a small person in general, but mostly because I’ve just been forcing whatever muscle I have to stay put by running the heavy lifts as much as I can. So going back into a slow weight gain is going to be easy. Well, easy enough.

Conditioning has been put on hold since it’s pretty much going to drive me into the ground if I try to implement it like I used to.

3 hour session. More or less did this to give myself a giant shock of volume, since I’ll be heading back into heavy territory soon.

Have no clue what my 1rms are, and I don’t care at the moment, going to venture into heavy/high volume work, but it’ll be slow since I’m not in pain and don’t wish to be.

Really sore today, so I just decided to walk everywhere.

Very much dead. Very much tired.
