  1. I'm not dead. Grandma is though. Passed away last week unexpectedly and it threw everything off a bit. In her 90s so it was't totally unexpected but there were no signs or chance to say goodbye. Just didn't wake up. Got a couple workouts in the past couple weeks and have stayed good on my diet though. Totally gave in and deadlifted some heavier weight in one of those workouts. 315x5 no problem, 365 was a struggle and I stopped after 2 because I could feel myself getting sloppy. This week is another weird one due to the wife being in Chicag
  2. Thank you! Gym didn't happen Friday night due to impromptu dinner with friends. Found fully keto options at the restaurant (seared ahi tuna, steak, and veggies) though, so that was a win. Saturday and Sunday we traded gym time for a long walk (1.25hr) saturday and 9 holes of disc golf with one of our puppers sunday. Sunday night we had breakfast for dinner which allowed me to try out keto pancakes along with my eggs, bacon, and sausages. Not bad but not great. Kind of like a corn muffin pretending to be a pancake. Provided a suitable delivery method for
  3. Weekly weigh-in today: 409lbs Total lost in 2 weeks of keto: 17.4lbs Wife also lost 4lbs this week. Stomach issues from keto are setting in but the weight loss is enough to keep my willpower high. Have been pretty strict on the diet for the full two weeks. This coming weekend I'll be trying keto pancakes and cheese wraps. Going to hit the gym tonight, as the kiddo will be at grandma's.
  4. Idk, I've never felt a thing from edibles. Either the people making them had no idea what they were doing or my weight made me resistant like it does for alcohol or...? Idk. Probably need to try some retail stuff now that it's legal here in IL. Good to see you Willes. Thanks for the heads up on this challenge on FB.
  5. I agree that the fact that you've moved from lifting to running and everything in between doesn't say failure to me. It says true Rangering. We are a group that realizes that there are too many amazing things in life to obsess over one for too long. Keep up the good work.
  6. Excited to catch up on your thread, especially on the hip health aspect. Mine have been out of whack ever since my back injury. Need some inspiration to get my stretches in.
  7. Good to see you again bud. Looking forward to catching up on how you're doing when I have a minute.
  8. Thanks Gents! It's difficult for me as my weakness is sweets but at the same time, that is why it is affected. You should be able to give it a shot and still enjoy your cheeses though. Most cheeses have only 1g of carbs per oz. Most folks need to go under 20g per day then can increase to at least 30-40g. I'm usually eating a couple ounces of cheese per day. Had like 8oz of cream cheese the other day in bacon wrapped jalapendo poppers. Good source of fat. Slow and steady gets the bounty. This is the way. Win of the day: Na
  9. Also, I just adjusted my settings so that the forums email me whenever y'all reply. Hoping that will help remind me to come check in every time I have a spare min.
  10. Thanks old friends and new. First post updated with goals. Hit the gym last night: Squats: 125x5x5 OHP: 80x5x5 Deads: 165x5x1 Squats had some good fatigue starting to build for the first time in the new program on the last couple sets. Same with OHP. I blame ketosis and the fact that I'm probably not fully switched over yet. Deads are still tempting me every session. I want to slap 3 plates on each side but I know my back isn't ready for it. Then went up and ran a bit but got super fatigued. Again blaming ketosis. I should have
  11. The story so far: October 2012: I woke up at 500.5 lbs and majorly depressed. I found and purchased the old NF beginner's guide and started doing it with a box of kitty litter in place of a dumbbell. I also start walking, then running. I learn about proper eating habits. Fast forward to June 2014: I've lost 148lbs powerlifting and walking/running and am in the best shape of my life. I'm honestly happier and have found self worth. I end my marriage and am honestly even happier. (So is my ex wife, so everyone wins.) However, the emotional challenges of divorce combined
  12. Last night: SQ: 70x5x5 OHP: 55x5x5 DL: 115x1x5 Realized we jumped too far on DL last time (after all the big deal I made about doing so/not doing so) so we just repeated 115. Wife had to have me spot last set of OHP. She has been rushing a bit so I suggested she listen to the stronglifts app and rest the full 90 seconds between sets going forward now that it's a little heavier. Then went up and did week 2 day 1 of C25k. Ran hard again. Felt really good breaking in the new New Balances my in-laws got me for christmas. Wife has b
  13. I don't mean to seem ungrateful for the jumps. I remember the weeks when 5lb jumps didn't happen every week. Just eager to get back up where I was and thought it was 20lb jumps. So the thought of it taking twice as long was disheartening for a moment. Not sure where I got the idea of 20lb jumps for DL. Starting Strength maybe? Or maybe one of those programs suggest you do sets in increases of 20lbs until you find your starting point? Not sure. If I just keep up with it I'll be struggling to grind out 5lb jumps soon enough, I'm sure. And I'll have done i
  14. The health club we joined has an inside track. It's really nice this time of year as it gets cold and gross in my part of the country. Also the track is made of some kind of slightly springy material so I like to think that it is easier on the joints than running on concrete. I'll do treadmill in a pinch but it bores me to no end and I can't stop staring at the timer the whole time, which makes it drag on forever. Always a pleasure Wolfie. It's all feeling pretty good as of right now (knock on wood) but I will definitely k
