Just got back from Dr. Mike. I have a protruding disc between L3/4. I'm not really supposed to do much activity for about 6 weeks, but he knows that's never going to happen so we came up with a plan to deal with my training load. Hopefully it works or I'm pretty F'ed.
Go see Joey G. fir some Rolfing

She's good. Def helped me out with my neck and shoulders.
Well what jim doesnt know is the same thing happened to me at Hoop Heaven circa 2002. The next day the center of chest was off about 1 1/2 inch from belly button. I was basically locked up. Went to her and the next day i felt great.

That said, this is a very deep muscle practice so it was more about unlocking the muscle around the disc. Great start to recovery for certain.

Something is up with my digestive system - been a couple days now.
Sparing you the details, the solution may be a 1/2 jar of miralax in a 1/2 gallon of water.

Weight has been steady for 3 days - and i've had this feeling like a dehydration headache. Still pounding the water,
but it won't relent. I don't see anything in the list of detox symptoms to explain it, and i'm not too low on calories.
Maybe something in the fridge was on the edge? I'm 100% sure this is not a problem.

Hopefully a temporary situation!



Lots of good results!

Keep going! Get those spouses on-board to reduce the stuff that knocks you off the diet.
Think about it - if they buy cookies, and YOU eat the whole box, they are not buying if for their enjoyment.
Speaking of, my w1f3 asked that I pick her up some decent IPA. She isn't on-board with the NA stuff,
and playoff football is on-deck!

Make those good choices - see results, celebrate with new bike parts.
When I stopped keto in 2020, I had a splitting headache for a week straight, miserable and edgy the whole time. I thought it was a dehydration headache based on where my head hurt but it finally went away. I remember having to sit down on rides because the trail was spinning and it just took some time for my body to revert back.

Never gonna let you down.
I just got hip to riced cauliflower. It’s delicious and has very little carbs compared to rice.

It’s all clogged up with protein bars

Happened to me the first week of diet change as well. Body will adjust.
Same thing for me. Last week, Week 1, was really low carb. Just a protein, vegetable and a fat for each meal. 3 meals in the I.F. window. Let's just say I wasn't regular.

This week, Week 2, fruit was added to each meal. Back to normal for now. I understand fruit will be taken away in Week 3. Something about carb cycling.

Upping daily calorie goal 10% to 2200.

Even though it's early, losing 4 lbs a week is not the goal here. I don't want to lose muscle mass in this process. My TDEE is somewhere in the 2900-3200 range so this should hopefully calm everything to 2 lbs/week.

My weight loss is hitting it's first slowdown. Thankfully it's still going down, but the last two weigh ins have been -0.2 lbs each day. As long as the needle keeps pointing down I'm happy but I'm enjoying the weight loss so far. It's been challenging but it's paying off.

My daily goal is 1810 + exercise calories. I don't go hungry or avoid eating, but I rarely hit the full total. At 2lbs/week I should hit my goal early, or comfortably on-target. About to start the body-weight-program next week #neuromuscularwork - that should likely increase hunger.
