There’s no question… the diet is killing me. Sapping my energy, wearing me out.
I dropped another 10# off my working max, but it’s good. I really did solid reps today on squats, better form and everything. Really worked to be solid on technique, everything tight. Felt very strange, but boy… once I put the belt on and firmed everything up, wow… 185 felt like a feather. It was kinda cool. I also worked on making every rep a single. So I wasn’t doing 1 set of 5 reps, I was doing 5 sets of 1 rep with minimal rest.
But I also just opted to not kill myself. I only did prescribed reps. And then when I did my assistance sets, only did 3… because by that point, I was running out of gas. *sigh* Yeah, I can’t wait to be off this diet.
Speaking of that, I need to pick up on my fat shedding. I did recalculate my macros, which is a start. But I also need to get back on more exercise… walking the dog every morning, etc.. Every bit helps. Maybe when I get down to 220 (4-6 weeks??? if I’m good), I might take a small break, eat normally, recoup some strength. We’ll see. One day at a time.
