      4:50pm: Deloading week! Squats and OHP. Tried doing barbell lunges which were a lot harder than I thought they'd be! 100x6, 95x6, 95x6. Made my knees hurt because I don't think I have the mobility in them. I like how I need to stabilize the weights with my core.

        I think running and lifting with no sleep made me really tired.

          Rest day because I stayed up till 4am to study for a midterm this morning. For some reason, I've been ravenous all day even after eating over my budgeted calories. I remember feeling this way before but I don't think I noted it in this journal. NEXT TIME!

          • hey! just wanted to pop in and say hi...i feel like we are in a bit of a similar situation! i'm 5'3'', 140ish lbs, and like to work out and lift. it's only been in the last few weeks that i've realized i still need to track calories, because i've been gaining muscle, but not losing fat. i've been trying to stay around 1700 give or take, but have had a couple days of 2400 and some 1000. also been experimenting with the leangains/other fasts too. how has everything been working for you since starting to track macros and calories? i find it nearly impossible to get enough protein in! i get maybe 100 grams a day, and i know i should be getting more!

            Comment


            • It's only been 3 weeks of tracking so far so I can't say for sure. The scale says I'm 2lbs lighter but that could just be normal fluctuations.

              I'm in the minority of pescatarian primal eaters so I get most my protein from fish (trout, salmon, tuna, sardines, catfish, mahimahi, cod) and eggs and shrimp. I also added back dairy protein in the form of greek yogurt and cottage cheese to experiment if getting enough protein outweighs eating dairy again. Finally, I usually have a scoop of whey protein powder after lifting.

              Good luck with everything!

                              5pm: Squat day, 6 on last set. Barbell lunges: 145x6, 140x6, 135x6. OHP - could barely finish 5 on last set! Took a break after 2 reps.
