Day 2 of a planned 5 day Fat Bomb Week

Blood sugar 100 mg/dL

πŸ‘ŽπŸΎ I 'stress ate' a bag of potato chips yesterday. I am sure the 1 lb gain is from the massive sodium, but, normally I NEVER break a fast. However, because I am experimenting with eating fat bombs this week, technically I was NOT on a 'no solid food fast', so I gave myself permission to eat. The good news is that the situation that triggered me to 'stress eat' is looking a lot better...

πŸ‘ŽπŸΎ I stuck to having only 2 fats bombs in the afternoon, but broke down and had an unscheduled πŸ₯› protein drink later in the day due to the 'stressful situation' covered above. So, the goal of cutting the protein intake was NOT achieved. Today will be the real test...

πŸ‹πŸΎ Today is a gym day. I think my body looks GREAT in the mirror. Weightlifting rocks. I can honestly say I am looking forward to going to the gym today. If my 'program' were only about 'weight loss' I think I would have gotten 'exhausted' by now and would definitely 'take a break'.

So, I TOTALLY understand why I see people doing that all the time. Weight training (as opposed to aerobic exercise) is a different 'beast'. For me, it is a never ending journey to lift heavier and heaver weights to 'build' my body.

Have a great day everyone!

Sure hope the stressful situation is settled - makes it so hard not to nibble on something - can't wait to see the results from you new experiment - I love weights too but not in the same way - you are a force of nature with your exercise!

Careful on Heavy lifting. Make sure you work on β€œform” first & then the weight will follow. I have seen to many friends injure themselves due to heavy training vs. quality training.

@srossca - Yes! Safety first. I am very careful with form. I also use the "Smith Machine" that a lot of people hate but I find is safer. Also, I have only been increasing every month.

The Smith Machine is deceiving when it comes to Squats & Weight amounts. Try only a Regular Barbell & it will provide a better exercise. Again, start light.

An Olympic bar (standard weight bar) is 45#. Smith machine is only like 20-25#, so the weight added is deceiving like Srossca said. And the core work you get from free weights will burn so many more calories and tighten up your stomach on the process! Give it a shot, just to feel it!

@chrisw77 - I actually did do my squats and deadlifts without it on Saturday (because someone was using it). I agree there is a difference, but I enjoy the 'guidance' it provides. I do understand why people don't like it, but, I am also the guy with a weight belt and gloves :)
