Alright. Saturday is here! I'm starting back into my more rigorous diet. I'm going to do my 14-2-12 thing. The evenings are noticeably cooler now. I picked up some more caffeine and I'll be jumping into my EC stack today.

Now I should have more to report in this journal now.

Fall Deficit

Code:
WEEK 	WEIGHT		CHANGE		STD.DEV.	COMMENTS
Week 0	82.46 kg	
Week 1	80.86 kg	-1.60 kg	1.25 kg		7-Days 1800Cals
Well I have the first week is done. It wasn't that bad actually. It literally takes me 3-4 days to get into things before my body gets used to it. It's like the aspect of 'draining' of glycogen other such things just makes me feel like crap. Once it's depleted, it's not so bad. Above, I also included Standard Deviation. I thought it might be an interesting thing to start tracking. Just a way to see how much my weight deviated from high to low over the week.


I did my three gym workouts this week - full body for each.
I did limber 11 - each day of the week.
I did my focus flexibility work - currently on Longsitting and supine hip, knee flexion exercises.

Also back on my EC stack, 16mg/200mg three times a day. No noticeable side effects, aside from the first night sleeping - my mind wouldn't seem to shut up.

This Week

Same thing as previous week. I should have 7 days of 1800 calories. Same gym schedule and flexibility/mobility work.

This was a decent week. Not much change on the scale. It mainly bounced around slightly all week. I'm glad I started tracking standard deviation. It gives a good indication of how the week went beyond just the average. I get to have my refeed today and tomorrow, so I'm pretty happy with that.
  • I had my three gym workouts this week. I also did fasted cardio this morning, prior to my refeed.
  • Limber 11 done every day this week
  • Focused Flexiblity work on long sitting and supine hip & knee flexion work.
This Week

Pretty simple week coming up. Continuing on with my 14-2-12 sequence. So I have two days reseed and 5 days back on 1800 calories.

My body has basically had a good yell at me saying I need a deload week, so I will obey. I suppose the question is how my body yells at me, and it's just something I can feel. It just feels beat up. I've been also getting little injuries like pulling some muscle in my neck and another in my left wrist.

I don't recall exactly when my last deload was, but I get the impression it was in June sometime. So it's overdue. I think to avoid problems like this in the future I should put this into my todo app on my phone as a recurring thing to do every 10-12 weeks - just to be ahead of problems.

I had a proper workout on Monday, so the deload will be Wednesday, Friday and Monday's workouts. The plan is a light volume workout.

I had a massive jump in weight after my refeed. As you can see the standard deviation is huge this week. Overall it's fine. It took all week to drop all the bump, but I'm lower than the low the previous week.

Hungry all the time. Deficits suck.
  • I had my three gym workouts this week. Started my deload on Wednesday.
  • Limber 11 done every day this week
  • Focused Flexiblity work on long sitting and supine hip & knee flexion work.
This Week

Another week of 1800 cals. And finally get to go on maintenance.

So I've been thinking. After I finish off this cycle (I finish the last 12 days this Friday and then two weeks maintenance), I'm going to give some sort of EOD a try. It's something I want to try.

I'm a tinkering person. I know that my 14-2-12 (that's 14 days deficit, 2 refeed, 12 deficit - maintenance) works, but it sucks. It's rough and with the required maintenance it eats up time. Sure a nice maintenance is great. I have long lows, short up, low again and maintenance.

The hopeful goal is I can lean without such long lows.

EOD with 1800 cals on off days, 2500 cals (maintenance) on gym days (3x week). Compared to 14-2-12 over 5 weeks (which puts me in maintenance week 1) works out mathematically equal from a calorie point of view. Looking at 4 weeks it's about 4000 calorie difference.

I want to give it a try, at least for a few weeks to see how my weight reacts to this and more importantly - how I feel doing it.

Some of my stretching progress with my hamstrings. Some days it feels like I'm not going forward or progress is none, but pictures help show I am. I'm in a place where progress is slow, but it's still happening!

Finished this week and can finally have a refeed with some maintenance time. Timing worked out because it's Canadian Thanksgiving. Anyway, I was getting pretty wore down at the end of this. Nothing new for me, just the longer I go on the diet, the harder it gets. Friday was a particularly rough day.

I ended up waking up early anyway today to do a depletion workout prior to refeeding. I was doing some re-reading on EC stacks and realized optimal partitioning one shouldn't take EC on refeeds. I've always done it, but today I took it off.

Did all my workouts and all my mobility & flexibility work for the week - plus an additional depletion workout.

Upcoming Week

The plan is to get through this weekend and than follow a strict maintenance.

A week of maintenance, which has been good. My lower back is a little sore of late. I'm going to get squats out of the game for a little bit. It seems to be the more aggravating items sometimes. Damn, I hate that my low back is screwy like this. It's life I suppose at this point.

I did all my workouts, Limber 11 and flexibility work this week. Still on the EC stack. Trying to keep things simple. Also I'm starting to get a little busier at work - which is nice. Keeps me occupied.

This Week

Just going to stick with maintenance as strictly as I can. I do get hungry at times, so I might bump another 100-200 calories a day this week (currently sitting at 2500 calories). Workouts, mobility and flexibility as usual.
