    I’ll be tracking macros for a while so I can learn what works. Fat loss with muscle preservation is the goal, I’m not in a hurry. I want to lose 24 more pounds and stay at 245-250.

    Here how today’s training went down:
    Leg day. Quick back story on legs. Last time I did them was 4 years ago or so. I have a really bad knee thanks to an injury at work back in 09. 4 years ago was my last surgery, and I need another. For one reason or another it’s not happening right now. So I stopped legs all together after that last surgery. I feel like if I slowly work into it, I can get something going again with them. They are weak and everything feels awkward but I have hopes.

    Squat:
    Safety bar (can’t hold a regular bar right now cuz of shoulder...) plus 1 plate per side. 2 warm up sets of 10 then 5 sets of 15 with 60 second test between.

    Leg press:3 plates per side, 7 sets of 15. 60 second
    rest.

    Leg extension:no idea of weight but did 7 sets of 15 concentrating on holding the extension for a couple seconds and then going slow on the negative. 60 second rest. Legs are shot.

    30 mins stationary bike.

    So far food has gone well. I feel great.

    Quick update on today. No training, slept well. My body was a bit beat up so I did some hot tub therapy. Fixed me right up. Spent most of the day working on the house with my 5 year old, did 30 mins on the stationary bike.

    Food as follows:
    Protein-279g
    Carbs-246
    Fat-72g
    Total cals-2763.

    Woke up at 265lbs this morning.

    I have a bit of an ongoing tradition with my wife and son on Sundays. For more than 5 years every Sunday we have breakfast at the same little diner. For now I’m gonna keep that tradition as long as it doesn’t impact my progress. I’ll try to build it into my calories.

    Way too few calories IMO. You could lose weight eating 3K.

    Do whatever makes you feel good though.

    You shall know the truth and the truth will make you odd.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. My TDEE is about 3600 or so, so yeah I probably could lose weight at 3-3200. I did update last nights post, as I had something before bed.
