750-850 calories a day!!

I think Paris Hilton gets more than that drinking alcohol! This diet looks tough, but you're a toughie right? Good luck.

And I probably outweigh Paris by a good 20 pounds.

750 calories is NOT fun. Trust me

Workout updates:

Frday was lower body day. I forgot my notebook to write down my weights. Oops.

Saturday was an off day. I did a lot of napping and reading.

Today: (no laughing at my puny weights!)

Flat BB bench
85 3x5

UH BB row
80 3x5

Flat BB bench
75 1x8

UH BB row
65 1x8

Lat pull
70 2x10

Incline DB press
60 2x10

Rope crunches
70 2x12

Feeling weak today. A little shaky. So I didn't want to push things too much. Most of those weights I could have gone up a notch on, but with the PSMF I didn't want to take any chances.

btw, PSMF sucks. No impact carbs sucks. My jar of PB is mocking me. BUT it's working. Only a few more days of it anyway.

Those aren't bad weights. And like you said with the psmf , the last thing you want to do in injury yourself.....shit, you should write me up a diet...

Boring day in the gym.. 45 minutes SS. At least I got to watch tv while I did it.

PSMF is.. getting stupid First half of the day I felt a little out of it. A little shaky again. But I also think I drank too much coffee this morning. Later in the day, not so bad. Shakiness went away, just worn out. I'm hungry (duh). But I'm almost done with it. I want some oats damnit.

I think I'll wait another week or so before I start doing some short refeeds.

One good thing about this no direct carb crap is I'm exhausted so I get to bed earlier

Yeah, I'll post some pics ;) Just gotta get some taken for the progressions for this diet. Usually I do my stats and pics either once a week or every other week. So I'll probably do those this weekend.

I'll dig around for some pics from my last show in a bit

Ok so I've been too lazy to upload some pics from my last show into my photobucket. I'll try and get to that this evening while my chicken's on the grill.

Ler's see.. updates:


The 7th I quit psmf'ing it. My morning weight put me down 3.5 pounds since I'd started it just under a week before. That was enough for my tastes. Also, knowing that my girly cycle was right around the corner and that I was holding water weight too, the weight was dropping too quick. So thankfully I got to have some oats for breakfast

It was supposed to be leg day. I had a raging headache all day and felt like crap. So that day ended up being an off day.

Yesterday I had planned on making up the leg day I missed as well as getting in some HIIT. But thanks to some problems on the farm here (a combine went up in flames) I couldn't get to the gym until late and I opted for the HIIT session.

It basically ended up being a trial run on the SFP. I hadn't eaten for 2 hours by the time I got to the gym, had two cups of coffee right before leaving the house.

5 minute warmup, 12 minutes of 60/60, five minute break to refilll my water bottle, then 30 minutes SS, HR 140-145.

I'm thinking now that being on more of a fast when doing that crap is going to be much better. At least a 3 hours gap after eating. 2 was too close. It took probably 20 minutes after I was done to not feel nauseous.

But I did feel the 'tingle' in my trouble spots like some say they feel during the SS portion.

I think this SFP is gonna be a serious love/hate thing. It sucks, but at the same time I like it.

Today, so far I went for a brisk walk/jog around the farm. Roughly 4 miles. I'll be heading into the gym for upper body lifting later on. I'm just gonna scratch that one leg workout for now. Leg training the day after a hard HIIT session is something I try to avoid. If I can squeeze it in this weekend, great. If not, oh well.
