    Guitar I played more folk songs last night. The improvement in speed moving from one chord to another has been exponential. Of course right now I am only doing the easy chords.

    Starting Strength I downloaded the ebook from Amazon last night. Yes, there are free versions on the web, but I don't want to steal money from the guy. I may download a free pdf version so that I can print diagrams etc. I also found a really great FAQ for the program Starting Strength- Complete Guide
    I, of course, want to jump in right away, but good technique is the most important thing. I have been watching Rippetoe's videos on You Tube.

    EMF Wt. 230.8, still up. I have got to stop reading the "45+" thread. I am starting to feel confused. Don't get me wrong, I still believe in lchf, but I have been wondering if I could move the fat percentage back down to 70% (currently 80%) and allow a little more protein.

    Snowing this morning, I need to leave at 8am to hit cardio kick at the gym.

    It sounds like you have things well in hand. How are you liking SS so far? I was talking to K about getting a copy but she is more inclined to get some fitness thing for the Xbox, which seems counter-intuitive to me, but what do I know?

    Yeah, a lot of confusing threads out there, and depending on which one you read you could pretty much do anything and still call it primal it seems. I wish you the best of luck finding the n=1 that works best for you.

    Personally, I can't do the lchf because I can't bring myself to add butter or 1/2 a cup of HWC to my coffee when I could just eat a couple more eggs, which of course ups the protein etc.

    My last set of goals increases the protein goal and decreases the carb goal, my fat hovers around 75%. I think if you are going to start strength it would not be a bad idea to increase the protein, at least on lifting days. Within the LCHF community I have seen numbers that figure protein anywhere from .8g/kg of goal body weight to 1.5g/kg of goal body weight. I think as long as you are keeping your carbs low, which is what will get and keep you in ketosis, you probably have a lot of leeway with the fat and protein macros.

    So eat the egg yolks for the fat.
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    SS makes total sense to me. I feel very impatient to jump right in, but for now I am following his recommendations for the set up of each move. I held the bar in position on my back for the squat this morning. I did not squat. I worked on the bench press form as well. That one doesn't need as much prep. I think the great thing is going to be the time saving feature. three moves per workout, 5 reps, three sets. I will start working the program at home and then move it to the gym when I gain some confidence and/or max out my home weights.

    Yeah, to reach 80%, I have to have a Bullet Proof coffee in the am with 1 tbsp CO and 2 tbsp HWC, a Tea in the evening with 1 tbsp CO plus other added fats during the day. The only question I have is how much did the 10% extra fat help me to keep from binging. I find my protein is also consistently too high according to my old macros. So allowing myself more is better. I am now hitting between .7g and .8g of Lean Body Mass (134lbs)

    Chris, My new Protein goal is my goal wt. in Kg x 1.5, so that seems right on. My carb goal is still 20g.

    I LOVE SS. I think it is a really solid program. I had some amazing results. I hope to restart it someday. Please do watch your form though - form before weight, always. Once you start upping those weights (and it happens really pretty fast), if your form is not SPOT on, you can seriously hurt yourself. I squatted at 15 lb (seriously, that low) for a long time because I couldn't get my range of motion right (I do not have good mobility). Once I got that down pat, the weight added fast and I felt strong. At some point, I would even suggest a trainer (but someone who knows how to do these lifts - most gym trainers do NOT) to watch your form and correct you. [Sorry for the mini lecture I just don't want to see you get hurt.]

    I agree Ruth. It is one of the reasons I have taken so long to jump into it. The good news is that I have my training buddy. I am going to send him the info on the program so he can be my spotter and help me with form.

    I hope you enjoy it. I really do like it. I'm just not in a place right now to do consistent training. Once I get my life ordered again, I will return. In the meantime, I'm attempting to work on my mobility. I'm super strong (think it comes from my grandma's German genes), but without mobility, I can't nail the form.

    For all the exercise you do that is probably an excellent protein goal. Mine is just slightly over 1x's goal weight but i dont strength train so i am sure it is enough for me.

    Hehe... Canio.
    Eat them eggs!

    N=1

    I actually pretty much hate eating food...
    Drinking it is just easier.
    If I didn't KNOW it was so seriously unhealthy I'd probably try to get by drinking all my calories.
    'Cept sometimes I like steak flavor, or duck flavor, or fatty pork flavor... and that doesn't come in beverage form.

    Actually it's a medical issue for me... it used to not be that way or I would never have gotten fat in the first place, obviously.

    What are those high fat eggs they do called... "tri-clops".
    One whole egg, two extra yolks. I imagine it's rich and tasty.
    Ugh... too early in the day for me to be talking food.
    Just the thought makes me feel like retching-up.
