The tired of ketosis is kicking my ass today but I tend to wake up more at night anyway. Usually music or something will blast me out of but I haven't put any tunes on yet.

Upper body this morning and will do legs, butt later.

Very basic right now, lat pulldown, pushdown, curls with rowing bar, one where you pull up on rowing bar, shrugs w dbs, bench press flat, crunch bench ,

leg extensions, leg curls, weighted squats w 25 lb dbs, toe raises for calves.

Will add more as I get more used to keto beating the shit out of me. I usually don't feel sleepy much.

Moving things around to make room for a bit of yoga too. I have all my weight stuff in my room and honestly think sometimes that the bed has to go.

Regarding the butt-building work, I have to recommend any squat variation, but especially split squats! Romanian deadlifts are also phenomenal for glute work. You'll get the most bang for your buck (or butt). ;)

Thank you I will add these. I have not done incline bench presses before either so trying those today.

I love that it's so easy to find form demos now. https://videocdn.bodybuilding.com/video/mp4/94000/94752m.mp4

Cooked my chicken with a slice of bacon today rather than butter and lemon. I was not impressed. I absorbed all the fat off it I could cuz yuk, but the lemon tastes so much better. I have hit the lost 20 pounds mark. Motivation and disciple still 100% with diet and adding more exercises now that I seem past the energy lag part of ketosis.

That video is a little inaccurate because those are actually rear-foot-elevated split squats (or Bulgarian squats), which are good! But they do require a bench and can be pretty tricky if your balance isn't there.

Here is a video of a standard split squat, which doesn't require a bench and isn't as hard to balance:

Congrats on the 20 lbs! What is your overall weight loss goal?

I have depression and can go through long periods of weight creep and don't give a shit. I got up to 234 pounds but I'm tall so I can kinda get away with it. I'm 214 now and want to get to maybe 160ish to 150ish range. i used to be 150 in the old pics of me I like but had no muscle so I want a higher goal range to account for muscle.

Well you are well on your way! How long did it take the lose the 20? With the depression and weight gain, was it an emotional eating situation?

Do you feel that you are able to feel full throughout the day with your current diet?

I started the 13th of Sept. I went pretty hardcore getting into keto and I eat one meal a day maybe a few tomatoes or half cup raw broccoli if I feel hungry before mealtime or peckish but hardly ever do. I have a hard time finishing meals. I think all the water is the key to all that. It was boredom, liking food and ordering a lot of pizza and subs with my son who is 6 foot 7 and skinny as a stick.

I quit coffee for this too which is a big deal for me. Don't miss it at this point. And my friend is kinda mad there's no more drink nights at Marcia's

I don't take any bb supps but I take vitamins, calcium, manganese, dandelion root, red yeast rice, co enzyme q-10. I want to lose fat, build an ass, lift my tits and have a flat stomach again. Any input welcome.

changed it up a little... I wonder if all the pills have carbs. Multi vitamin, calcium, magnesium it should have said, B- complex, D3, red yeast rice.

Tried the bacon to add more sodium but not sticking with it.

You started 13th of Sept in this year?

Yeah I get that, food is such a great form of instant gratification.

Worked till after 7, came home and ate and maybe going to take a nap before working out 11 to midnight ish. Put a huge spoon of sliced jalapeno in my chicken, very good and it sure helps with the water intake.

Did my usual workout earlier. Will do new stuff tonight.

Bought salmon and pesto sauce because I'm needing a change from the chicken.

Want to read up more on the keto and do it right. I know my start up was too extreme but I needed the boost it gave me.
Weight is coming off a little slower now but I'm looking at it like good, I'm keeping my water up and maybe a muscle or two is getting better.

I think that's wise, don't want to starve the body so its metabolism becomes more conservative.

Wow! Well I am very interested to see what happens over the coming months.

I'm interested to see too. I want to add more weight to my workouts sooner this time and try harder for some actual muscle.

Started bulletproof coffee today. Minor set back... wrenched my left leg, right arm bruised my arm maybe lost part of my toe n a nail but back at it today. Kinda just taped it shut n hope it heals. Blood everywhere but it's not that bad. I heal very fast so no worries.
