    OK, I guess now that I am moved in to my new place I have no excuse. I'm not going to start pumping iron but I will get back to what has worked well for me in the past which is the PBF plan of 2x/wk LHT bodyweight exercises, 1x/wk sprints plus lots of walking and a weekly backcountry hike.

    Great! I like the sprinting and long walks - excellent! But why not get out of your comfort zone and try some lifting for a month? Heavy compound lifts increase testosterone (yes this is important for women) and HGH, this combined with some increased muscle will drive up your metabolic rate and burn some fat. This is the month to push beyond any pre-conceived notions about what you thought you were capable of and get past any previous barriers with a vengeance.

    I am all on board with steak and eggs, and carb sundays! that sounds like a great idea rather than just half-assing it all week long attempting to break the ketosis barrier.

    Only thing is I have limited access to weights. I have a bar and around 50-100lbs of weights on hand. How do you feel about using pushups, or various body exercises in lieu of heavy max weight lifting? Or should I attempt it with what I got and just do a few more reps.

    I did a little lifting in High School with a horrible diet, its been quite a few years now, and I bet that using these <100lb weights would give me a run for my money considering all I do is pushups and sit-ups.

    I didn't realize it doesn't start until Monday. That will give me a chance to use up those tomatoes and cuties I have hanging around, and co-ordinate my lifting program.

    If anyone intends to bulk on steak and eggs with a carb refeed on just sundays, the bulk will probably add on slowly. Not a bad thing

    I was INTO body building back in the 80s. Competition level. I know exactly what I am capable of, I just don't feel the need to "go there" again at this point in my life. I don't do exercise that I don't find fun any more.
