Awesome session. Very happy to see the squats progressing still. The 20 repper wasnt too bad, even if it did took me 5 mins to actually become conscious again after finishing it .
Sleep Im starting to feel slightly under recovered. I have a small cold that has been lingering for weeks now and im having more and more trouble falling sleep. I also keep waking during the night to go to the bathroom as i have increased my daily water intake.
Diet Same as normal. I started taking CLA yesterday but didnt really like how it made me feel. Maybe its just a placebo effect but i felt a bit sick to my stomach. Will stop using it for now.

40 mins on the eliptical, HR @ 150
Did some cable crunches working up to a set of 10 using the whole stack. Also did some ab wheel and leg raises.
Going slightly lower carbs than normal as i am only doing cardio today and im still feeling pretty full from Sundays Skipload. Carbs will fall around 30grams. Increasing fats/protein slightly.
That's a beautiful effort bud!
Taking on the squats that way will always knock you out, lol.
Awesome squat session. The 20 reps are always a rough time, way to get at it Luna

Very surprised to see my weight go up. Didnt change anything except for the refeed i did last Sunday. I do feel a lot less flat which could be a big reason for the weight gain. Legs were looking pretty good and i was actually pretty happy with how i looked in the mirror last night.
Im starting to feel pretty rundown at this point. I think lifting four days a week while dieting is a little bit too much. My elbows are really starting to ache and im feeling very unmotivated to continue. Will probably go back to lifting three days a week as of next week.
Not sure if i will continue to focus on weight loss or if ill just try to maintain for a bit. Will come back on that later.
I tend to go back and forth between 4 days and 3 days lifting while dieting. Dieting really really sucks, a lot. I have cycles where I feel great 12 of the 14 days I'm low carbing it, then there are cycles where I feel like complete shit for most of the days. When I get to that point, I usually have some clean carbs or mix up my training a bit, just gotta listen and have that ace in the hole when something comes up, it's mind games. I was having one of those nights where I said to my self..."I really feel like eating some cheese and pork rinds.." Not on my diet, likely going to reflect in a bad weigh in tomorrow, but my mind is happy, and I know I'll lose the weight.

I think 3 days a week sounds perfectly reasonable. You've been doing great with where you are and the strange may spark some new gains and motivation.

Wow man that 20rep squat is killer. And a tip if the mirror is showing results don't let the scale dictate your training. Sometimes I still have to convince myself the scale is a poor way to gauge progress compared to a mirror.
It's forever a work in progress for us all, and the way you are evolving with it is great Luna.
Nice sessions Luna!!!
Good work Luna!

Very happy with this. I normally baseline on Wednesday's from the Skipload, but i only came close to baseline yesterday (Saturday). Thought i had overshot completely but i dropped 1.5lbs compared to last week and im feeling great. I guess now that i have gotten leaner i can take in more carbs and it takes a bit longer to return to baseline.
Just had my first meal of the Skipload, bread with lots of jelly and a protein shake. I watched Skip's dvd for the third time yesterday and noticed i was doing a couple of things wrong (not eating protein first, getting painfully full on the first meal). Going to adjust those things today.
Lower back still has a good amount of fat to drop.
Im uploading the vid of my GM's from yesterday, takes forever. Will post shortly.
Depth on the GM's is less than i was expecting, but going deeper would mean the bar would start rolling. Im still getting a great stretch in my hams on the bottom though.
