Update from the weekend:
The headaches disappeared as soon as I stopped drinking shakes. My voice is still hoarse though, no idea what could be causing it.
I ate too much sugar at a Purim party on Friday night, and woke up the next day (at 3PM) with a sore throat & temperature. Slept through most of the day and had just a small meal before bed, so it turned out I fasted 22 hours - this was the longest fast I've done since my last Yom Kippur maybe 10 years ago.
Warmed up doing some quick snatches with just the bar... Someone told me one of the gym instructors was an O-lifting champion in one of the Soviet countries. Bowlegged, in his late 50's I would guess, short with shoulders as broad as a house, stalks around the gym all day with the biggest ankle weights I've ever seen. I can see him in the mirror looking at me out or the corner of his eye when I lift but he always turns away and pretends that he wasn't. He's the only one that hasn't yet joined my fan club
but it looks like I'll have to be the one to quit the game and ask him for some help with the O-lifts!
3 rounds of

Push ups (knees on the floor) 21 14 10 8 7 7
Pull ups (assisted)
I messed up the timing in the last 3 so I won't post numbers (they were pretty pathetic anyway).
No PWO shake. I ate when I was hungry, about an hour later: salmon, broccoli and brussels sprouts with a dash of olive oil.
I'm really feeling disoriented now with rethinking practically every rule I've lived by in the past 5 years. I'm not sure what to do with diet now that the V-diet is out, how to balance training between progress, fat loss and recovery. Basically this is the first time I'm planning for myself. I'm rereading lots of posts and articles I just skimmed over a while ago. But most of all I just need to pick a plan and be consistent.
We're in the middle of the first heat wave of the season... And I vowed months ago that I would not wear shorts until I got my weight back under 49kg...
