Good morning!

"Hey Keld - you're going in the WRONG direction, dude!".

Yeah, I know. I was hoping to break the "82 kilos three days in a row" thing today. Which I did. By gaining 700 grams. LOL. Wrong way!

It's not that I did bad yesterday. I actually did all I'm supposed to do.

I know where the issues lie.

I put full focus on getting all the protein in. The one gram per lb of bodyweight. 167 grams of protein. Damn. That's a LOT.

It felt like I was eating all day, and it felt like I had eating a concrete brick. And now it feels like I have to pass a concrete brick that won't budge. My stomach is hurting, and I can't wait for this to pass. :/

It's okay though. I will get through it. No biggie. I've had worse.

So, what differencees am I seeing by having all the protein? Any change?

Actually, yes.

For one, my legs aren't aching any more. The muscle tiredness is weening off, and fast. I think this is related, as I haven't done any less than usual. Yesterday was a long day, I had my five kilometer walk, 9 hours at my main job, and 4 hours working at the gym, sitting down the most a total of 2-3 hours through the entire day. I had almost 20,000 steps (see my stats from yesterday here!), and I was what I would count as pretty damn active all day.

So, I am seeing a clear benefit from extra protein, I think. I'm not sure I like the weight gain though. This is something I need to evaluate in a day or two, whether I want to go that route right now.

Obviously, I need that protein. I need it for my wellbeing, and I need it to build muscle. However, I also need a good weigh-in next friday for my meeting with the surgeons. This is important to me.

So, I will give this one more day, and see where I am tomorrow. I will keep doing HIGH protein, but stay under my RDI. See what happens. If I gain again tomorrow, then I will stop until I have had the meeting, and then decide what to do.

I am curious how this morning's workout will be. I'm heading to the gym in 30 minutes or so, and it's gonna be interesting to see whether I can actually feel a difference there.

Wednesday, I had to back out of a workout as I simply didn't have the energy. I had protein most of the day, and tried again in the afternoon, and I have so much more power behind my workout. It was incredible how different I felt. I did not expect that.

So, if I feel good working out today, I will definitely take that into account. But of course, I also have to take the Friday meeting next week into account. I do NOT wanna go and have gained weight.

I know it's kinda hysterical. One kilo more or less doesn't make a difference. Overall, I have less body fat than last time. I have gained muscle, and I weigh the same. Obviously, I have lost fat. But I want to see the numbers in order for me to feel okay with all of it.

I have a lot of things going on today, too many to mention right now, as I need to get going preparing the day. However, I will definitely make sure to let you guys know how things went. :)

Today, I'm thankful for:
- Friday!
- Sunshine!
- Weekend!
- Wife!

Have a great day! Life is good!
