Day 3 of a planned 4 day ‘no solid food’ fast
Blood sugar 90 mg/dL

45 pushups 2019 PUSH UP Challenge (Overall leaderboard)

Scale not moving. My carbs and calories are high (for me), for weight loss, and I am not doing any running because I am lifting weights each day to take advantage of this unintended 'bulk'. Running reduces my ability to 'lift heavy'. If my carbs are too low it also reduces my ability to lift heavy. I would not care that much about 'lifting heavy' if I was not already 'bulked up' because of the recent 'carb binges'.

🏋🏾 I went to the gym yesterday. It was so crowded that after half an hour I was not able to do my squats or deadlifts. So, I have to go to the gym this morning.

Even though we have a party this weekend I am thinking of 'no solid food' fasting all weekend. I just can't get up to 180lbs and I am in real danger of getting there at this point.

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!
176.0 lb Lost so far: 31.0 lb.    Still to go: 12.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

you do what you are comfortable doing. I know it is hard for you to eat and not eat some carbs too. doing the same weight exercises each day is not ideal either so maybe it was a blessing you did not get to do your squats and deadlifts. the body needs time to heal inbetween those sessions. cardio is a bit different

nice recovery, I've would of planned it the same way💪🏿

Love the way you plan things out in advance - I am just not wired that way ;) If you fast this weekend what happens with your usual 5 day fast next week? I know you don't want to hit 180 and it sounds like you have it figured out how not to do that - good luck with it. 45!! OMG - you are soooooo close to 50!!!! You can make it!!!!

Best time in the gym is the morning....less people & easier Completion of the WOD.

@srossca - Yeah I agree that gym in the morning may be the best for me. It also allows me to take a huge hit of caffeine that I cannot do at night (because I wont sleep).

@nikeit If I fast this weekend I will then end up fasting 7 days because I would STILL do the usual 5 days during the week :)

@baskington - Agreed, working out every day is not good. I need to give my muscles time to recover. But, I needed to do 'something' otherwise I would get upset at the weight gain. Running would also help, but I like running when 'fasted' and this week is the unusual week where I wont be fasting like normal.

You can work out everyday by rotating your muscle groups no? I use an app called Fitbod. It builds my workouts based on previous activity and factors rest!!! 
12 Dec 18 by member: Swedishblondie
@Swedishblondie - Normally rotating groups would be the smart move, but I have been following leangains.com and I intentionally only do squats, deadlifts, shrugs, bench presses, pullups and crunches. This produces the body shape I desire. For example, I no longer do bicep curls. My biceps do grow, but way slower. I like the 'proportion' this produces - - What has been working is just working out 3 times a week :)
