Still on vacation...

I had planned to fast on Tuesday, but we were at a pool party and there were french fries... so I hit the carbs hard and woke up with a stuffy nose and head Haha. Today I am gonna do low carb...

I got in the gym this morning and of course I was able to lift my max and get a solid workout. Carbs *are* great for lifting weights. Yes, I can lift weights when doing low carb, but, when I carb up I can push myself to the max.

However, I can *see* the fat around my waist. I am going back to low carb and massive cardio with minimal lifting starting on Sunday when I get back from vacation.

I expect to do 3-4 weeks of this to get what is definitely looking like *20 pounds* I need to get rid of to get back to where I was only 2 weeks ago!

I have seen too many guys my age raise the body fat and not get back. I simply can't 'thread the needle' trying to balance eating carbs and weightlifting and not getting fat. Others can do it, but, I-simply-cannot-do-it.

Today I plan to fast until dinner, eat low carb, and from Thursday to Saturday I will allow myself a final *vacation eating blow out* :)

I do plan to lift on Friday morning.

😎 Life is Good! Have a great day everyone!

Okay - there's the thought / question - the fries /carbs for lifting. I was a bit curious on the consumption of high sugar type foods for the 'carb loading' and I get that no one would want to eat four baked potatoes compared to four twinkies before a workout. I've never felt stuffed from french fries. Do you feel the same?

Although of course, I don't workout so I probably wouldn't feel the same affect after fries that you would.

@FullaBella - It is hard for me to say definitively how say french fries the day before would be different than say a glass or orange juice the day of a workout. However, it *feels* like french fries the day before a workout allowed me to do 5 sets of 10 reps of squats that maxed out at 230 pounds. I just could not do that on a glass of orange juice haha!

When you’re lifting, do you try multiple exercises, such as pushups, KB Swings & DB Close Grip Chest Press-3 to 4 Rounds? You can finish these after your Squats or DL. It helps making lifting less boring & Challenging!!

@Srossca - I used to do that, but, (and I admit this is my own fault not having good form) I got really painful tendinitis. This is why I only do the squats, deadlifts, bench presses, and dumbbell rows. I am usually done and out of the gym in 30 minutes Haha!

If anyone wonders why I -make a plan- then -change it- then make another plan... This is why I do this journal. It is very helpful to look back on it and see what works for me and doesn't work for me. So far it seems I will 'cave in' and binge eat when I my day is not 'structured' like my work week. However, I seem to find the motivation to 'limit' the 'damage' by fasting even when I didn't plan to, after a 'cave'. I feel this fasting has allowed me to not hit 190lbs... yet...

I agree - that's why I journal here - not only my plan for healthy eating but other things. It's here, to be found, and examined again. I'm rereading my journals from 2014 and see where I was slipping deeper and deeper. Just couldn't really accept it at the time.

@FullaBella - Exactly! When I re-read the journals it is my biggest motivation to change, accept, or acknowledge what works for me.

Good fun and good plan! πŸ˜€πŸ‘

Snorting Speed (Amphetamine) might help lifting. Lifting without the aid of drugs works too. I'm happy with my progress doing it free of drugs.

@Diddlee - Yeah that is why I have to be happy with where I'm at :)
