Friday 20th Sept 2019

right ankle, heal a little sore


51 min easy to moderate walk to park and bush trail
Dry fasted today. The walk should cause more dehydration for more fat loss :)

And I caught a Myrmecia nigrocinta bull ant queen at the bush trail  :highfive:
She's 2cm long, with good eyesight. She can see me a metre away

daaaaaamn!!! looks massive. awesome.

how long will that ant last in "captivity"? i imagine you treat them "well", from the vids etc. wonder how long they live.

She is quite big, but not as big as the largest species.
Also very good eyesight she can track me from a metre away.
This one can do a small jump, and a nasty sting....



They can live for a long time, depending on species and how much rest they get over winter if you don't heat them up, so they stop laying eggs over winter.
You can have bad luck where they die after a year, but if they survive they can live from 10-20+ years

released my foot muscles and calves before heading to outdoor court

Saturday 21st Sept 2019 - BBall practise

weight without shoes 98.8kg
1 hour

average

After all my dribble and shooting stuff, did quite a fair bit of approach jumps and dunks, and attempted lob dunks on the 8 foot netball rim

Hops slightly lower
Did a lot of jumps, but most were only 80% effort.
I find the approach jumps on dunks and lobs - I don't think too much, I just do it, so my plant timing etc is whatever my body likes.
And the landings seem to stress my body way less than on the formal max height jump tests, even though I'm doing way more of them.
I land less deep, absorbing more on the calves.

Decent energy considering I'm fasted
Anyway I will rest up next week, heal some minor aches, want to get a fresh session in and see some jump progress from the fat drop

---

Went for a walk around the courts, where there are nice walking paths through nature and stuff.

Sunday 22nd September 2019

Week 5
Height - 5'8.5"
weighed - 98.5kg (-1.3) 217.2lbs
waist - 40 5/8 inches (-0.5)
hip = 43 7/8  (-0.5)
upper thigh = 27 7/8 (-1/8)

Tanita scale bodyfat% = 29.6% (-1%)

Total loss so far - weight  5kg 11lbs  Waist 2 3/8 inches  BF% Tanita 3.9%

Must be holding water from last night's food as I was lighter during the week.
Still all the other stats are way down as expected.
Looking forward to getting down to 97kg and under next week.

Also, the ratio of 1kg per half inch of waist still seems to hold true for me
Since I want to get my waist down to 28-29 inches, that gives me a rough idea where I'll be

---

Feel surprisingly decent after yesterday's session - achey erectors, but overall not all that sore, especially my feet and ankles.
I don't even feel drained!
Left knee a bit achey
In the past, yesterday's session would have destroyed me, especially at my current weight

My gut feeling is that I am recovering better on these fasts and can tolerate more - it could be the jacked up GH levels in my system from fasting and the anticatabolic nature of it all.
When you consider the aggressive calorie deficits, not eating etc, makes it even more so

Well I changed up plans and ended up dry fasting overnight!
I figured why not?!

At 9pm I was bored so went for another 15 min walk to burn an extra 100+ calories.
Felt good in cool evening, on flat even road.

At 10pm which is 24 hours from my last meal on the previous day, I started to get hunger pains and felt light headed.
By 10:45pm it all went away, and I went to sleep at 11am and no issues falling asleep.
Woke up early though, around 3:30am. Then lay in bed for a few hours sometimes dozing off for 15mins and getting weird dreams, where I was drinking water in one :P

Didn't feel hungry or thirsty in bed, just dry cotton mouth, but had stomach noises, strange growls and squeals :)

Woke up feeling decent, but right heel/achilles was achey - too much walking...?
Left knee felt good

At 10pm I weighed 97.4kg 214.7lbs
This morning I had a tiny pee of dark orange, strange smelling urine and weighed 96.7kg 213.2lbs
So I lost 0.7kg while in bed.

Waist is down 3/8 from Sunday already!
I burned 2700 cals yesterday according to Fibit, and 700 by the time I woke up, so on calorie deficit alone I should be down 0.4kg in fat.
Waist size drop suggest 0.7kg in fat, and the rest in water.

My lowest weight last week on the second dry fast day was 98kg, 216lbs

Haven't had any bad detox effects yet.
I hope the dry fasting has some effect on my scalp skin condition, some kind of itchy red eczema patches, but may need longer fasts to help it I think.

Will keep dry fasting till dinner tonight, for about 44 hours in total.
Hope to hit 96kg by then

Monday 23rd September 2019

46mins
light BBall practise session - no running or jumping, just did dribbles and light shooting stuff near the hoop
To get a light sweat going, dehydrate the body while in dry fasting.
Energy was decent even with the  dry fasting.
After the session I got really thirsty, and my body will just have to suck it up and burn some fat for water!

--
resistance at the outdoor courts

Bulgarian split squat - BW x 10  paused and confident/explosive
inverted row on stair railing - undergrip x5, rest 30secs, overgrip x5
pushups x 10, rest 30 secs, plank x 40 secs

felt strangely stronger across the broad.
gaining strength fast

first time doing the inverted rows, felt couple reps off failure.
Moved pushups to floor, and not that hard.
Added 10 secs to planks and it was after pushups, but started to shake in the last 10 secs.

---
30 min walk around the courts and paths

---
back at home

single arm row with 10kg bumper plate x 12
overhead press 15kg bumper plate x 12 - 5 sec hold at top on last rep

comfortable reps
---

When I got home I lost my train of thought and accidentally drank a glass of water...   :pissed: :-X
Still pretty thirsty so hopefully didn't undo my efforts.....

It is a bit...  :derp:

So weight before and after the shower was 95.7kg 211lbs
A 1kg drop from this morning, even with the glass of water, so body should be still nicely dehydrated

Also having the shower made no difference, as they say that the body would suck water in, but my weight did not go up

Might just get to 95kg by dinner time tonight which would be a crazy weight drop in just 44 hours of almost dry fasting   :o

Tuesday 23rd September 2019

Really good sleep last night, some 9 hours!
So feel decent, some DOMs in my pecs, from pushup change, and overall good light muscle aches.

More dry fasting, but likely just for 20 hours.
Just going to do some release/tissue work today
And some easy walking most likely

---

So last night before I broke the 44 hour dry fast I weighed 95.4kg 210.3lbs
After 2 meals, with mashed potato and reheated boiled potatoes plus lots of water I'm pretty hydrated again
Around 2000 calories total, still in a 1100 calorie deficit as I burned over 3100 yesterday according to my FitBit

morning weight was 96.9kg 213.6lbs

So quite a drop from this time last week, where I was 99kg 218.2lbs
-2kg will feeling decent and gaining strength, (maybe even muscle) I'll take it!
Waist is back up to 40.5 inches from 40.25 though...I feel puffy, but so do my muscles from all the carbs :)

My skin felt so  smooth and tight during the dry fast, you lose all the water retention

34 min walk to park and some laps on the soft grass fields

then some soft tissue work at home and stretches
