Today's Stats:

Eating very high fat, restricted calories - mostly avocados, with minor amounts of cheese, sausage, and cottage cheese. I'm losing weight nicely - about 2lbs/week recently.

However I'm not sure if I'm changing my composition - I seem to be consistently around 25% BF. Losing weight is not my goal. Losing FAT is the goal.

Shoulders, Abs

All of these, back to back
Military press 90x7(fail) 70x7,8,8
Front Raise 15x10,10,5,5
Lateral Raise 15x10,10,5,5
Rear lateral raise 20x10,10,5,5

DB upright row 30x10,10,10
Landmine rotations 25x5,5,5,5,5,5

Arnolds 20x6,7 (failing)

No stats today.
Didn't feel like getting on the scale.

Having a rough bout with insomnia due to coming off night shift. Now I have to work an unscheduled day shift immediately afterwards... tired.

We will see about exercise.

No stats today - also a scheduled day off the iron.

I'll see about getting cardio in on the stairs at work, or maybe some One arm Dumbbell Clean and Press.

Haven't done that one in a while, and it's really good overall core, cardio and whole body exercise. Not that stair climbing isn't!!!

Today's Stats
212.8 lbs 21.5% BF

I had drank two 16 oz (one pint) energy drinks before I got on the scales.

"A pint's a pound the world around", so I'm taking 2 lbs off that weight this morning, for 210.8 lbs today. At least I'm being honest about my dishonesty.

Since I am being honest, I ate a couple of donuts yesterday that a vendor brought in to work. Immediately, my guts began to churn and gurgle. It felt like a pack of hyenas pounced on those refined carbs and started howling and fighting over them. Not a good feeling.

Yesterday should have been back and chest day, but work was packed with activities, so I cut myself a little slack after work. Spent the workout time with the family instead. Still did cardio though, so there's that.

Edit:
Back and Chest in the evening
Bench Press 130x10,10,10
Cable Pulldown 120x10,10,5,5 (new high weight)

Bent over row 80x10,10,10
Incline Flyes 30x10,10,10

Plate shrugs 45x20,20,20

Ab roller 10,5 I did them slow, and all the way to the floor - so I don't feel too bad about doing half of the normal number.

Time and intensity:
22 minutes, 134 BPM

Took a little Super Bowl and World of Warcraft breather, but I'm back. There is absolutely no synergy between fitness and gaming!!

Flat weighted situp 30x10,10,10

Plate side bends 45x15,15,15

Time and intensity:
32 minutes, 146 BPM avg

Edit:

Time for an update. Good news and bad.

Great news on today's stats:

207.6 lbs, 23.5% BF. This is the lowest I've been in a long time, and as of today I am no longer obese according to the BMI.

I've been doing cardio - stairs at work, mainly.

The bad news is that I've not been lifting. I'm happy and sad, both.

I think I've re-discovered a fundamental truth that bodybuilders have known for a long time: You can shed fat effectively, or you can build muscle effectively, but you cannot do both at the same time. They call this "cutting" and "bulking".

I never intended to "bodybuild" - as in competition, so I figured effectiveness didn't matter much, as long as I made steady progress on both. Well I did get progress on both, and then that progress came to a halt for a couple of months. So I took a break from busting my butt and just went keto with low calorie intake.... and look what happened!

I suspect the muscle I've added since October has been helpful in burning off some of the fat. But mostly it's probably just the energy required to stay alive that's doing the burning - Circulation and breathing, really.

Anyway, I've found a process that seems to be working, so I'll stick with that until I've moved from overweight to normal weight. Then we will pick up again with increased protein and lifting. Put on the good weight - muscles!

...and I'm back. Up 4-ish lbs. (212 this morning).

Winter blues came and got me toward the end. Too much snowfall, darkness, and gloomy overcast sky. It's better now that we have daylight savings and more than 9-10 hours of daylight.

Cardio
26 trips up and down my two flights of stairs. 1/2 an Empire State Building run.

Time and intensity:
16:35 and 153 avg heart rate.
