AM temp/hr/bw: 37/64/81.8
AM skinfold(mm): pec(), sup(), ab(), sum()
Weight Vest: 6(89)
Supplement: 200/400 CEGCG (with vitc, 1g fish oil, 1g cayn) - 0800; 1.5g cayn- 2000;  40g BCAA;

Training day. Volume squats. Volume bench.
BS 6x120(p0), 1x140p, 5x130, 3x127.5, 4x125
Oly BS 5x120, 5x117.5, 5x115
BP 5x70, 5x82.5, 5x80, 5x77.5
Back Xtn 3x6x110(PR)

Notes:
Took 300/30 C-Psyn preworkout I and 200/1.5g C-L-tyro preworkout II. Haven't touched L-tyro since Feb but i didnt wanna take any more caffeine and thought i'd give it a shot. Bit of a risk but seems to be okay.

Kind of did a refeed. Maybe hit 200g if im generous with carb values. Maybe as low as 185g if i didn't. Can't be bothered because i reached my 8pm feeding window so whatever. If i didn't hit the spot, i'll just have to wait for another week..

So ive been talking to a girl for about a week. She is gorgeous, smart, funny and seems into me as well. She wants to talk on the phone (we've spoken once for about an hour but that's not enough for her) but my mind is mush from the daily 24 hour fasts and long cut ive been on. Told her to wait til sunday but she's getting impatient and thinks i'm strange. Was thinking of extending the cut a bit longer til the DEXA scan. Not sure. My mind isn't that clear..

Dude talk to the girl. Eat carbs if you need to. Get some pre-workout into you if required. There are more important things in life than cutting fat and a "gorgeous, smart, funny and seems into me as well" girl is one of those things.

Recovery training day.

Notes:
Looks like my metabolism is starting to tank. Half a degree drop is about 5% reduction in metabolism, so im looking at about 10% drop in the last couple of days. Will defo end this diet as scheduled if this doesn't recover but my sleep lately has been awful so maybe it's because of that. Anyway.

I think she's losing interest. I feel ... im not sure about it all. I think i need someone less maintenance right now but i dont know, my mind is not all here right now so i cant figure out if ive made a mistake or if it's salvageable. She seems to get upset if i dont text her often (i wont call her at all which she's not thrilled about) but i have nothing to say (mind is blank) and she's taking it to mean im not that into her (but i am). Will try to talk to her on sunday if she's still up for it

I'm no relationship expert and can't even comment on dating given I've been married for so long but seriously mate you think she's high maintenance because she wants you to actually talk to her and gets upset if you don't text her often. I honestly think you should read your post back to yourself out loud just to hear how that sounds and then ask yourself why she thinks you're not into her.

Today is Friday. If you like her maybe you give her a call today and actually talk to her. Like, for reals. You might be amazed at what happens.

Coges, the adarq.org relationship expert.. :D :ninja: but srs I agree w/ his posts.

Also, unrelated, but not sure I like the pause squats where you pause, then go down and back up. i dno just be careful with that. people usually pause at the bottom then go right up. Don't see what you're doing very often: people pausing, then dropping lower after the pause to go back up. I personally would pause at some depth, then go right back up, no trying to trigger stretch reflex to give you a boost out of the hole. Just my 2 cents on it tho.

she seems too demanding.. to each their own but i dont need that in my life i wouldnt wish that on anyone.  focus on your training....

and u dont "need" someone less maintenance right now. you dont "need" anyone mijo.  just focus on you.  if someone less maintenance comes along thats cool too... if not..rock on :headbang:

This is everything that is wrong with the world today. I know I sound old and I am but what the fuck? Really? All these bitches out there just ruining your life are they?

If she's "real" she will want a real man who can actually talk to her, who will give her the time of day, who will put her first . That doesn't make you weak.

put her first? do they have children together? Sounds like he barely knows her. 

The way I feel about it(and I'm sure many people may disagree as I am not one to conform to conventions) is that if I have a goal or vision then the person I am  with or in this case not even with but just talking to  will support it and understand(if they are good for me.. if they dont understand then they arent for me).  I've witnessed firsthand all too many people drop their dreams and change their lives completely for women and in so many cases it has not worked out for the best.  I dont have an "attitude" toward women I treat everyone i meet with respect.  I just dont believe in putting someone I just met on a pedestal especially if I have other aspirations they could get in the way of especially if they are demanding.

Now this I agree with, pretty much. I think we're coming at a similar argument just from different perspectives. If you have worthwhile goals and you're chasing them then you need to choose how you factor outside influences into your life. That I totally agree with.

My original point to Maxent was that if you like a girl, she has good qualities and she's into you then you should make an effort towards her. That doesn't mean he needs to drop everything and just focus on her. I'm sure he's capable of both. I agree that he doesn't need to put her on a pedestal but as far as making communicating with her a priority how much time and effort does that really take? I would imagine not enough to detract from whatever his other goals are.

Also, as a side point I would think there's a certain caloric trade off that can be acquired by being in a new relationship that might just offset any carbs that are required to get you through a few early relationship conversations.
