I can’t wait to eat carbs again.

It’s not that the weights are necessarily heavy, but I just have no gas to push them. I have no idea how I’m going to get through next week. 🙂

I am kinda happy tho to continue to see my pull-up/chin-up going up.

But apart from that, things are tough. I mean, it’s simple bodyweight work, but I just can’t hit many reps since there’s nothing in the tank. It is what it is. Interesting tho, it got mentally better as the session went on. I think part of it was I just stopped thinking about it. But I’ve also added beta-alanine and citrulline malate back in. I took them out investigating if they might be what’s causing my itch to get so itchy, but it’s been over a month without them and I still have the issue, so I strongly doubt it’s them.

The crazy thing is I’m actually contemplating keeping my carb intake around where it is for a little while longer. After this program has run its course, just change to a program that can work a little better with the (lack of) intake, and stay here for a while. I found it odd that thought crossing my mind this morning, but I am considering it. I won’t do it for more than 12 weeks total tho — given what I learned back when I was more hardcore RP’ing. So basically, finish this out, 7th week protocol, 3 weeks anchor, 1 week deload — and that would be the most I’d be on the reduced carbs.
