Wanted 5, but couldn't help quitting.

Down to 172 today, the weight is really just melting off. I've reconsidered my decision to bulk at 170, it's just going to mean being fat again at the end of it.

Solid workout. I'm thinking either once a week benching or start pressing on accessory day.

Starting to get skeptical that I'm 12 pounds away from decent ab definition, might have to go down to 150ish. Man, was i really 90 pounds overweight?

It was really a mistake to do lots of cardio, squat light and infrequently, and never deadlift. Hur durr.

No weight loss this week, scale wise, but my waist around the navel has dropped half an inch to 34.

On Saturday I'm going to go in and do an easy workout focusing on speed like I did at the beginning of the diet. 170x15x1 or something.

Getting more serious with my diet. First, I have to lower cals to 2000 since I've stalled at 2500. Second, I'm going to start IF'ing for the insulin sensitivity benefits, and I'm going to have 100% of my daily carbs post workout.

Going ketogenic. <50g carbs a day, just enough to allow a beer or two.
