Day 1 of a planned 2 day OMAD (One Meal A Day)

Blood sugar 82 mg/dL

๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ Did I keep my net carbs below 10? Yes!
๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿพ Is my morning blood sugar in the 70s? No

๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ I LOVE Carbs!

High consumption of them WILL make me fat (I have the numbers to prove it), but they are required for me to ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿพ โ€˜lift heavyโ€™ (and they taste great ๐Ÿ˜Š!) I did not actually plan it, but I ended up consuming nearly 300 carbs on Wednesday. This is nearly a monthsโ€™ worth of my normal carb intake. I had planned to go to the gym on Thursday anyway, so I decide to put my, now glycogen filled muscle cells, to good use and increased my weights by 20lbs for most of my lifts.

๐Ÿ“‰ Previous (three sets of):

Squat - 160lbs (10 reps)
Deadlift โ€“ 160lbs (6 reps)
Shrug - 160lbs (10 reps)
Ab Crunch - 120lbs (10 reps)
Bench Press - 85lbs (10 reps)

๐Ÿ“ˆ Yesterday (three sets of):

Squat - 180lbs (10 reps)
Deadlift โ€“ 180lbs (6 reps)
Shrug - 180lbs (10 reps)
Ab Crunch - 140lbs (10 reps)
Bench Press - 90lbs (10 reps)

๐Ÿ˜Ž Basically I hit a HUGE milestone for me. For the first time ever in my life: ** I lifted more than my own weight **

๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ I put a bar on my shoulder, that was loaded with weight that was 10lbs heavier than myself, and did 30 squats. I then deadlifted it 18 times, and then followed it up with 30 shoulder shrugs. A year ago I would have a hard time even lifting 100lbs!

๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ Lifting weight is not like losing weight, I am โ€˜growingโ€™ and โ€˜gaining strength. This is such a โ€œpositiveโ€ process where instead of looking thinner and thinner I am trying to make my body โ€˜growโ€™. Now, there is no end in sight, because I am just getting started.

Have a great day everyone!

You are certainly on your way. Great job! Carbs are a tool and you are using them wisely just like you do with fasting.

@chesgreen - You are too kind my friend! Let's be honest, I went on a 'out of control carb binge' then afterwards, tried to pull a 'win' out of the situation by using those carbs in the gym Haha! This is fine if I was in a 'bulk' but, I *was suppose to be in a 'cut'* !

What should matter more is what you did vs what you intended. You are wiser and stronger. Don't beat yourself up so much. I am almost at a breakthrough and I am looking at the big picture of my improved behaviors vs my screw ups. You got this!!!

You're doing so good babe! Can't wait to show you off to all of my old friends at Jesse's wedding tonight! My girlfriends are going to be so jealous :)

People ask how can I keep my carbs uner 50 and here you are under 10. Wtf. How can you keep up your exercise regiment with such low carbs?

@baskington - gRRR Came back from my run and my BS is now 86 :( Not surprised because I did my best run ever. I ran 5 miles in 50 minutes. This means my body is still coursing with glycogen. What I need to do is go back in the gym and do two sessions a day. Can't because we have a wedding to travel to...

@Alnona - The only thing I need the carbs for is to 'increase' my weights. I can maintain my weights on 10-20 carbs a day.

I'm glad you're enjoying training so much.

One challenging comment though: when you say carbs make you fat and the numbers prove it... do you mean the scale weight increases?  
12 Oct 18 by member: chrisw77
Because us carbs-all-the-time folks that work out show gains all the time, but only a VERY small percentage of the weight is actually fat.

Good job!

Good comment Chris. Lifters donโ€™t lose weight, but the weight redistributes itself. In addition, the muscle constantly needs fuel/calories!!

@Becca@ - I had two fat bombs yesterday, none today since I am travelling.
