#Day 30


I weighed 120.1 today. I'm under some stress and my sleep hasn't been great. So I'm hoping this is just water wieght retention because of high cortisol; and not me plateauing already.



10:40 AM
Kick-starter


A cup of this shit with 64-70 calories because I'm sleep deprived, I have an exam in 5 hours or so and I'm about to throw up.

I know it's messy in the background and my cable management is atrocious but please don't pay attention to them. I shouldn't have taken a picture there...

Breakfast


2 egg whites + 2 cups of tea.


1:35 PM
Lunch


Had some of my favourite food!

Thank god today was a rest day. I would've felt bad If I had to skip a workout. I had an exam and I wasn't feeling well all day because of sleep deprivation.

#Day 31


Well shit... this is not going that well huh... I weighed 120.08 today. 3 days into the week and I haven't lost anything...

I don't think anything is wrong with my diet. I reckon I should just move more.

Any feedbacks, observations or ideas? If you've got anything to say I'd love to hear it.

You're tracking calories, yeah?

What does an average week look like, calorie-wise?

What does an average week look like, calorie-wise?

Well I mostly eat the same proportions. I take pictures of what I eat. And I count calories before eating and decide how much I should eat not after it. The only thing I can't count properly is the chicken pieces because of bones and stuff.

Right now I'm in around an 8000 calorie deficit per week.

My breakfast is 40 to maximum 300 calories. But most days its just 40-150 calories.

For lunch I eat half a cup of rice which is around 100 calories + 4 pieces of chicken which usually equates to around 600 grams. ( weighed with bones and before cooking ) I have a hard time estimating how many calories that is Because of bones. But I count it as 600-700 + a 40 calories salad. My lunch comes to around 800-900 calories per day.

For dinner I eat what ever I get. Liver, chicken left overs, tuna and etc... my dinners usually don't go above 400 calories. They usually are around that 300-400 ball park.

So I eat around 1040-1500 calories per day. And if I am losing weight too quickly I add in a banana milk smoothy for 200-250 calories.

Some days I have mutton and beef and calories go up a bit but I don't eat that much. For example I replace 600 grams of chicken with 150-200 grams of mutton. Or 250-300 grams of beef.

Sometimes I fo Dinner I just have 250 grams of ground beef with flour or bread crums and spices and I make patties with them.

I document every single thing I eat. Check my posts for pictures and information

If I've reached the week's weight goal I might eat a fruit or something and my dinner calories go up to around 500-600

Seems like you're doing a lot of guesswork here.

Are you actually using a food scale? Also, I'd strongly recommend that you at least acquaint yourself with one of the many calorie counting apps (cronometer is my personal choice) if you haven't already.

In any case, 1000-1500 calories is absurdly low for somebody in your situation. You should be able to consistently lose fat on considerably more than that without nearly as much risk of muscle loss, burnout, sleep disturbances, etc, etc...

I do use a scale when packing my meat.

I use Google to get the calories. And also I've used precise calorie counting and logging before. It just isn't for me. this time I log things generally but with pictures so if I really have to I can go back and calculate.

I have a bad case of ocd. It just doesn't work for me. It takes away HOURS of my day and mental energy and after a while just fucks my brain up and I can't continue.

And for calories being too low, if I was a normal person you'd be right. But I'm essentially burning my BMR + 300 for workout each day + the thermic effect of the food. I am very very stationary. I do 60% of thing just in my bed. Do another 30% on my desk. That leaves 10% of my awake time actually moving a few meters.



Would be cool to see what you are doing for workouts.

Lifts or exercises, sets and reps.

Diet is very important too though.

Sure. I do 3 sets of each exercise. I do an extra warm up sets for Bench, row and inclined row.

For my sets I try to hit the 2 first sets with 1-3 RIR. And I try to take the last set to failure. Sometimes I am successful and reach complete failure and sometimes I have to just roll with momentary failure (I don't like momentary failure)

That's for my rep scheme. For frequency I do 5/7 days. Before each workout I do 15-20 minutes of mild cardio and warmup.


For push days:

Close grip Bench + a single set of flies done as superset with the last rep of Bench.

Inclined Bench

Shoulder press

Lateral raises

Behind the head tricep extention


For pull days:

Dumbell row

Dumbell pullover

Inclined row

Inclined curl

Alternating curls.

Workout


I was busy today and then I fell asleep in the afternoon. Then I had to visit someone and I just couldn't get the workout in. So I got the chance to start working out at midnight.

I've never felt like this before. Holy shit I was strong today (for my standards). I had so much energy it was crazy. I was like a bear on crack 😂don't get me wrong I'm still pathetically weak but i'm comparing myself to me! Everything I touched was a PR!

After I finished my workout I could immediately go for a pull day workout and do full PRs there too! 😅

My recovery was insane too. I would push myself to failure but then a minute later I was ready to do it again.

I give it a 8/10. Very good workout. Holy shit

Not doing great weight wise tho. I think I might actually fail this week's goal. But none the less I feel great.

#Day 33


I weighed in at 119.08 today! There may be a slight hope that I'll hit my target. I just need lots and lots of walking... but I'm busy


11:45 AM
Breakfast


2 egg whits + 4 cups of tea.


1:30 PM
Lunch


The usual and it slapped + diet coke

IMG_20211224_022117.jpg


5:30 PM

4 cups of tea.


7:15 PM
Workout


Did pull sets... 5/10


7:30 PM
Dinner


An egg white + 3 tomatoes + 2 pickles + a small amount of corn + 2 pieces of chicke

Unfortunately went a 100 calories above what I was expecting... but I suppose a hundred extra calories won't do anything...

IMG_20211224_022214.jpg



2 hours of slowly walking around and some corrective exercises.

The progress is slow but i can see it. My knees hurt much much less and I can walk kinda straight. A month ago when I started I was taking crooked steps and my left knee was a mess. My knee hasn't felt like this in 3 years...

My leftshoulder... oh my left shoulder is doing much better too. Not fixed or anything but man does it feel real good being able to move more freely with less grinding and pain. Also I've noticed my left shoulder is starting to look kinda normal again. For a long time it looked like a fucking rolled and elongated sausage😅

I feel good. Progress will get slower and slower but I think if I keep it up in a few months I'll be good to go.

Well fucking great. Today I noticed i've torn my retinaculum in my right wrist. My tendons are sliding on each other and grinding and snapping when I turn my wrist. Fucking amazing...

I wasn't even ego lifting. I curl that shit like for 20 reps with strict form and squeezing + puase and control to reach close to failure. How did that tore my shit...

I felt the exact moment it snapped when I turned my wrist but I didn't give much thought to it. Fuck... I'm super disappointed. now I gotta live with a fucked wrist for the rest of my life or get surgery.

And I stayed up until 3:00 AM studying for my exam last night. My sleep schedule is fucked.

Also yesterday I walked around for 3 hours!! And because I was so bummed out about my injury I forgot to include that.

#Day 37


I weighed in at 117.85 today!! It's going too fast... I don't like it.

My skin has gone to shit! My hands look 30 years older. My skin is very dry and has lost a lot of elasticity. It's constantly irritated in diffrent parts across my body. Not a good experience.

My energy levels have crashed and most parts of my body ache. I haven't had this bad of knee pain since I started working 36 days ago... and I was pain free for a while in there...

I don't know. Maybe a refeed day is in order?

It was a busy day. Couldn't get a workout in.y workout situation is in shambles but I'm still in the game. I'm going no where. This is for life.

I would've given up if I was the same person as a few years ago.

I weighed in at 117.675 today. I have to slow down with the weight loss. I think i'm losing just a bit too quickly.


11:30 AM
Breakfast


2 egg whites + 4 cups of tea.


2:00 PM
Workout


I was doing my pull workout. I impinged my right shoulder while doing dumbell rows. I don't think it was that bad tho. Hopefully it'll get better till tomorrow. I don't have much pain, just a weird watery sound when I move my shoulder and a slight uncomfort.

I'm not going to give up... even with dozens of setbacks.

Hopefully this wouldn't leave any permanent grinding or popping sensation like my left shoulder did when I hurt it back in the day. ( 7-8 years ago )

Left shoulder, left knee, right pelvic joint, right wrist and now right shoulder 😂 what's next?

Belive me I'm not ego lifting or doing crazy shit. I know the fundamentals. I just have a shit body made from Chinese recycled plastic; tight and brittle 😂😂


2:45 PM
Lunch


The usual + half a potato

Fresh trout + Shirazi salad + 4 tomatoes

My shoulder feels much better. Hopefully as I guessed the damage wasn't that bad and it won't make any permanent issues.

Pain wise I'm good. It doesn't really hurt. I just wish for the watery sound and the moist sensation in my shoulder to go away.

Excited to see where you go, I hit the "watch" button on your thread. Some of your food looks amazing, especially the (beef) liver.

Thanks 😅 you must see my bomb ass cheeseburgers and my own made up lasagna 😁 they are awesome. I also love Kate mac, mac and cheese and several other pasta recipes. I also love making old fashion French fries and hotdogs with cheese.

I also used to eat a lot of Mexican corn ( a food name ) eggs and sausages and lots and lots of high calorie cold salads and sandwiches.

They are all delicious and I take pride in making them 😅 specially my home made pepperoni pizza and Mashrooms and cheese pizza that I make from scratch.

I hope someday I could show them off. But it's unlikely because of the amount of calories they have 😅
