No fat loss from the measured sites this morning. My weight was 166lbs mostly depleted, which is about right. I looked like crap because my muscles were all depleted, as expected. One of the worst parts is the ab depletion, because then they really aren't noticeable. The biggest change I'm seeing this week is a definable section between my torso and chest. It's really changing the shape of my upper body a good deal. I'm hoping, in a way, that the Skulpt was responsible for this change because the degree of inconvenience it causes.
Last night I was apathetic, as usual. I went to grab my final meal and decided to lay down on the couch for a few minutes instead. I fell asleep, woke up at 11, then went to bed. So, yesterday I was a little short on the calories, but I'll make up for it with a massive refeed. This morning I couldn't get myself out of bed and my legs were killing me, so I set my alarm for an hour later and skipped the cardio. One thing that definitely sucks about the diet is the apathy. Especially on a day without measureable fat loss (I know, other parts are getting lean blah blah). I don't even feel like doing my depletion workout now. But considering all I've read on evolution and your body's protection systems, you would think that on low-calories you'd be more motivated (to get food, especially). If I was a hunter/gatherer right now I'd probably end up dead.
I got up late and skipped the Skulpt. Next week I'm going to lower the carbs to a net 50g and up the fats with a little olive oil to keep the calories around 1200.

I decided to load up the leg press some more to try to get my reps in the 6 area. Didn't work? Man, my strength went up this week. Well, calf-raises were supersetted with the lp and I thought they'd be hard too, but 12 came up pretty easily. Lat pulldown I overestimated because I changed to a wide grip, but flyes I increased. More strength! Rows were a little rough, so I dropped them by 5. I'll stick to 145 next week. Dropped the db tricep extensions too far, so 35 next week. I was worn by the time I got to sldl/lunges, which are very intense. I skipped the last set of sldl and did a light set of leg curls then I was done! While showering I was a little disoriented and very hungry. I'm curing this with a comfy chair and a protein shake.
Bottom Line : Strength up, vertigo, totally exhausted.
I went to bed pretty early and got around 8.5 hours of sleep.
