yeah as i've transitioned into being mostly vegetarian i'm starting to wonder about my protein intake. should probably journal it out for a while to make sure i'm not shortchanging myself. was never an issue when i was eating meat or fish every day.

i haven't found myself missing extra protein sources at all, but i'm also not trying to put on/maintain mass. though, without as much physical activity, i had gotten up to 157 just eating veggies/rice/occasional milkshakes. without milkshakes & eating alot less (mostly what i grow + rice or pasta), back down to 145. can't feel any difference with/without protein.

i actually got some protein supplements because of the recent craziness, only used it a few times. feels completely useless.

beyond that, i'd eat a ton more veggies/fruit if i had them. would love to see how i'd feel eating way more fresh veggies/fruit right off the tree. predict it'd be incredible.

pc!

Morning BW - 66.5

Notes

Rest day today.

Have to say, despite low calories, recovery has been really good lately. I think that's probably mostly to do with really focussing on protein intake, can imagine I was usually just getting like 50g a day, maybe 70 on days I had a shake, before this.

Notes

Very low BW this morning, wow. Big drop last couple of days after feeling semi-stalled last week

Lock offs felt pretty good at 90*, not so good at 120*, need to get stronger in that bottom portion. Even weighted was pretty relaxed at 90*, which is fun.

Including one arm scap pulls to hopefully help round out the weakness at the bottom. Haven't have shoulder pain since doing pushups/OHP/pushback/ab wheel regularly, since I think they're all really good for shoulder stability, but the scap pulls reminded me that my left shoulder still has a way to go to get left arm fully up to snuff.

Think the ab wheel w/ weight in backpack is really hard for the amount of weight added, because the weight sits at the bottom of the backpack, so is right over my hips/lower back, so loading specifically at the least advantageous point. That's good, lots of time to progress them then!

reminds me of an old lyle mcdonald piece about the weird non-linearity of weight loss: "of whooshes and squishy fat."

Morning BW - 66.4
Workout BW - 66.2

Workout

Pinch Holds
8 x 5s, 5s
10.5 x 3s
13 x 3s
16 x 7s
18.5 x 2s
16 x 5s, 7s, 5s, 7s, 5s

Fingertip Pinch
8 x 16s, 16s

Pushups
BW x 7
+8 x 5
+16 x 9, 9, 9

KB OHP
8 x 5
16 x 11, 11

Notes

The pinch is very technique/set up/sweat dependent, hence the up and down on the 16 holds.

Fingertip holds (only using the last section of fingers/thumb rather than getting as much I can on there) felt good, might make them the primary pinch for a while. Less skin stress that way, too.

Sleep hasn't been great lately, as it gets warmer, so felt a bit flat this workout. A little constipated, too, alas.

Lmao, not a banner day for eating. Wasn't really a fold/failure of adherence as such, but friend had a 6 pack of doughnuts delivered to us as a gift, and me and my gf felt bad at not eating them, so i did my duty there, haha. Carb fest, basically. Back on course tmrw, when hopefully can use those carbs for a great workout

were they good doughnuts? because i still haven't had a truly good one outside the US. or even really seen/smelled one that looked promising.

if so, i demand details.

Not particularly, no. They were crosstown, which are basically just doughnut shaped cakes. I don't know why doughnuts in the UK are so bad.

Edit: imho the best readily available doughnuts in the uk are the sainsbury's 5 pack of jam doughnuts, which somehow only cost £0.80

bleh workout. that one eccentric killed me for the rest of it, though felt a little off from the start. Ah well, down weeks happen, esp. while dieting. scap pulls feeling more solid at least

anyway, THESE are doughnuts:

yeah, i think we're basically in accord on doughnut views here. you don't get anything here that has what matches the iconic us doughtnut texture. i wish i could find some apple fritters.
