    Low fat cream cheese, 11-12% fat I think. Only 3.5g fat on that photo from the cream cheese.

    I never compromise on my jam/marmelade/lemon curd mate, full sugar all the way

    It's struggling to get much into the 70's here and it's summer! I'm pretty sure, when I was a lad, it was super hot and sunny for all summer long. Of course, that was some time ago

    Malt & rye bread. Made using malted flour and rye flour.

    Don't tell me you don't know what lemon curd is? Pretty much, lemon juice, butter, eggs and caster sugar. You can get it in other citrus fruit flavours too.

    Kinda yeah. A childhood favourite of mine. It's has a smooth texture as you may have guessed.

    If you dare...............

    Ingredients

    4 unwaxed lemons, zest and juice
    200g/7oz unrefined caster sugar?
    100g/3Żoz unsalted butter, cut into cubes
    3 free-range eggs, plus 1 free-range egg yolk

    Preparation method

    Put the lemon zest and juice, the sugar and the butter into a heatproof bowl. Sit the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, making sure the water is not touching the bottom of the bowl. Stir the mixture every now and again until all of the butter has melted.
    Lightly whisk the eggs and egg yolk and stir them into the lemon mixture. Whisk until all of the ingredients are well combined, then leave to cook for 10-13 minutes, stirring every now and again, until the mixture is creamy and thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
    Remove the lemon curd from the heat and set aside to cool, stirring occasionally as it cools. Once cooled, spoon the lemon curd into sterilised jars and seal. Keep in the fridge until ready to use.

    Attached. It needs tiny splashes of water until you can knead it into a really tough dough. Then push it into a tin and fridge it. Add more honey if you want it to be sticky(er) !

    Microwave the honey/PB until they're really soft, mix the oats in before the whey, I've found it just mixes better. This makes 8 small flapjacks.

    Note: if you add too much water they will do sticky and chewy, and will need to be eaten with a spoon as they're too soft to hold shape. Add the water vary sparingly, it will need a really strong set of hands to knead it. Great forearm workout!

    Cheers, I make my own bread, I've had practice at kneading

    Might sub in golden syrup for honey though. I will try this when my current brownie batch has been demolished

    Then I'm gonna work on PB and banana ice cream.

    I have a summer fruit ice cream recipe somewhere. Using low fat natty yogurt, fruit and vanilla protein. I need to do a PB ice cream!

    Golden syrup would be a great choice, I only used honey because that's all I had lol. I made chocolate flapjacks by just adding nesquik mix, of course, this really bumps up the sugar content.

    My weakness is sweet things and puddings. So im creating alternatives that feel like cheating, but aren't.

    I also include sugar free jelly every evening. At 32 calories, 7.2g protein a serving, it's great! The flapjacks and protein cookies I try and use for post work out if possible, or if I'm really craving something.

    First off, my legs are sore. Unfortunately so is my lower back (ongoing historic issues). The change in back rest position is responsible for both of things but, as I can't risk my lower back, I will be reverting to the usual position next time around.

    Chest and abs done today. Normally when I up the weight on chest I struggle to improve upon my previous workout after that first set increase. Today was no different. BUT, I did pull out a PB on that first set. It may not impress alot of you but I incline pressed 45kg d'bells for the first time (99lbs). Every subsequent set on every exercise was the same as last time however, I'm seeing it as progress

    Chest and abs total workout time - 45 minutes

    Added 20 mins PWO moderate intensity cardio.

    Tomorrow is my weigh in day but I suspect I have lost weight, just have a feeling.

    100lbs DB on incline, great job

    410g of carbs, love it!

    why are suspecting that you lost weight, water? if you are gaining strength, I would assume you are putting on some LBM.

    I've been weighing myself on and off all week. I'm not eating as much as I was but I also cut down on cardio. Just not sure I have the right balance yet. Find out tomorrow.

    Just thought I'd post a couple of gym pics, this is one of the reasons finding a gym partner is difficult!

    I did lose weight, grrrrrr. Down 2lbs to 193

    It doesn't appear to be all fat and it can't all be LBM but the pattern has been there all week. So, what to do? Drop cardio or eat more? Eat more of course, my cardio is only 60 mins a week and its an important tool that shouldn't be underestimated. Unless your name is kelkel

    So, with immediate effect new macros will be

    Carbs 425g
    Pro 250g
    Fats 50-60g

    Total 3150-3250calories

    Calves and 40 mins cardio done 'semi fasted'. Let the eating begin

    Just decided to switch up my cardio to include a HIIT session per week. My god. I did 3 sets of 10 bungee sprints... Thought I was going to die!

    Macros look good buddy, can I ask why you keep the fat low though? I thought you'd have them nearer 90g with that cal intake.

    Because I'd get fat! I need to keep carbs and fats at the opposite end of the spectrum to minimise fat gain. I don't believe in the 20% thing when you start looking at ingesting a large amount of carbs. Less than 50g fat and I start noticing the difference in terms of body/well being, particularly dry skin and hair. I may up fats a little once I get up to 500g carbs and see what results but, ultimately, every time carbs or fats go up I just add the increase of fats from those sources onto my total in any event.

    And yeah, HIIT done right us very taxing

    Fair enough, I was just curious as I typically see people preferring higher fat values when bulking. 500g carbs! I'm drooling just thinking about it! I keep my carbs at 30-50g on a low carb day!

    I watched the last 5km live, really strong finish from Greipel, even though the others were within a bikes length he never looked like losing. Guy has some serious quads and calves on him.

    When the biggest guy in the gym compliments you, you know you are doing something right. Admittedly it was my leanness rather than my size but he is 6 stones (^80lbs) heavier than me so I will take it

    Had a great back and bicep workout, up in weights and/reps again. This change in workout days is helping enormously I think, much better than 4 days in a row. I was particularly impressed with how my upper chest was looking during my bicep curls and that was without it even being chest day. There is something about gym lighting being the most favourable in the world though.

    Lower back still sore from my silly position on the leg press the other day, needless to say, I omitted any direct work from today's workout.

    Enjoyed my extra calories yesterday and will again today. Doubt it will stop me being a little hungry though.

    Just trained delts and tri's in my sauna of a gym. It was being dusted and painted too, for the first time in many a year. Some walls have gone from white to red, I like it, red is an angry colour and may instil some more passion in some of the lifters. Unfortunately I think they should have painted the free wights wall red rather than the stretching area, oh well!

    Workout was great, again. Weights or reps up on every set, hoping this will soon translate to progress in the mirror. Had a couple of cheats yesterday but nothing crazy.

    Keeping going onward and upward

    I'm pleased my anxiety about leg day has gone. Just caned myself pretty hard so on my last set I had to pretty much go through the motions. I could have not done it and still felt I couldn't have worked any harder. Good weights, only a little disappointed on my rest pause set of leg presses but the weight was heavier than last week (but 3 reps down).

    Hitting macros every day but I think I may need to up the cals again before the week is out
