    Trained legs today instead of tomorrow. Short of time and did my usual 60 mins workout in 45. Guess there's no excuse in future for less intensity. I had to miss the last 2 sets but weights up in every exercise and set.

    I may go do fasted cardio tomorrow an miss it out of Fridays program and do abs then instead. My abs were sore for 2 day after only 4 sets on them on Saturday.

    I'm hungry! Meal 4 coming up!

    Today's weigh in and UP .5lbs. And I ate exactly the same as the day before which gave a 1.5lb loss. Minor fluctuations I can live with. Diet the same again today.

    No lifting but I did some fasted cardio -
    Bike
    5 mins warm up
    5x10 secs at full resistance and full speed, 50 secs rest inbetween
    5 mins absolute rest
    20 mins LIC on treadmill
    5x30 secs at RPE of 9/10 30 secs rest inbetween

    Now, I wore my heart rate monitor and, surprisingly, didn't really but any more cals than a 45 min LIC session!

    No more training today. Grey rainy day here so gonna catch up on some indoor chores!

    As my Polar heart rate monitor is supposed to be the most accurate brand out there I have decided to wear it all day today til bedtime. It will be interesting to see what my calorie burn is for 17-18 hours whilst awake, marked against the 2500 daily cals I am ingesting. Today is an 'average' day for me activity wise.

    It's a Polar F6 which has been superseded as they changed all their model numbers. It measures cals burned based on my info of height, age, weight and heart rate. So far in 9 hours plus my 45min workout I'm at 1650cals so I reckon that'll be about 2500 by the end of the day!

    American guys, how to you wedge an roast your sweet pots? Skin on? Super hot oven?

    I'm stoked to see what your heart rate monitor says at the end of the day including your 45min workout. How much did you pay for it?

    I paid about £50 about 4 years ago but had a healthy discount. RRP in $ would have been about 115 without discount.

    Re: sweet pots I will deffo oven them but I want them crispy not soggy! To dip in my venison casserole!

    i cut my sweet pots into about a 1/4 inch thick (.635 cm for you metric folk) and about a half inch (1.27cm). the thinner the better for crisping but they burn a whole lot easier. i season them different ways (depends on what i am eating, if doing steak, i usually try to put some fresh rosemary on them) and bake them at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes and then hit the broil on them for about 5 or so. i try to keep a good eye on them when i put it on broil, very easy to burn.

    venison casserole, do share!

    Skin on or off? And wtf is broiling?

    Casserole is pretty plain really. Venison shoulder, beef stock cube, tomato purée, touch of garlic and a pinch of mixed herbs. A few chunks of carrot and slow cook for 2 hours. Plain but really tasty. I'd love to add some dumplings to it and when I start bulking that's what I'll do occasionally!

    broiling is basically the top heating element in an oven turning on and getting to about 500 degrees so that you have heat coming at the food from all angles. yes, i use garlic salt and cajun spices along with the rosemary.

    Like grill AND oven together? Mine turned out ok with the oregano and salt. Have cajun spices but they wouldn't go with the venison then. Maybe next time.

    I had SlimmerMe's pancakes AGAIN today! Made up my mixture and decided to let it down a bit with a splash of skimmed milk. It made a much looser mixture which allows for a much thinner (what we refer to as pancakes here in the UK) pancake, not quite as thin as a crepe but not far off. Pour in middle of pan and swirl pan til it gets to the edges. You can then fill (if you like) and fold/roll to your choice! Harder to flip with a spatula so you have to toss 'em!

    glad i could help out. shredding them and doing them hash brown style is another way to go. i also smother down some onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms along with it and cook them all together.

    So, 16 hours into my day and my hrm says I burned 2300 cals. I reckon maintenance is 2500 or so which allows a further 200 or so whilst sleeping. I'm not leaving it on in bed. More weigh ins over the next few days and I should know for sure.

    pretty much. you may want to start the sweet pots first cuz they take a lil longer than the onions/peppers to cook down. the thinner you get potato, the hotter the pan/skillet, the crisper the pots get!

    Yeah I don't think 200 would be near it. 400-600 might be about right.

    Anyway, this mornings weigh in was DOWN .75lbs to 165.75 which is as light as I've been in 23 years. On the plus side I am visibly leaner even being only 2lbs down since I tried to maintain. Also I get to eat more food for at least a couple of days. Another 25g carbs and let's see what happens.

    Complete rest day today. No workouts, no chores, just looking after my little girl all day

    Great thread stem. Enjoyable read and good detail.

    Anyway my question to you... are you not digging the jack3d all that much? I was considering giving this a try as i've seen it cheap in a few places. Been feeling a bit lethargic following work lately before my workouts and was wondering if this might help.

    Thanks man, wasn't sure many folk were visiting. After all, staying still isn't really the name of the game but for me, it's been an education.

    I like the Jack3d. It doesn't blow my head off and I get no crash. In fact, I don't think I am really feeling it until I stand by the water fountain to fill my bottle and feel my hands trembling a little. I need 1.5 scoops though and also add to it 100mg caffeine, 1000mg green tea and 3g taurine.

    When it's done I'll be making my own formula up.

    Thanks for reading!

    For the time being I work 6-10 or 11 for 4 days. Just covering time til we set up the business. It means I can train in the afternoon which is my preferred time.

    The days I'm off I have my little girl full time.

    Delts, tri's and abs done. Good weights, good pump.

    Now to paint the fence before it rains again!
