Sorry about the tardiness with the update. Yesterday was much like the rest of my week.
Breakfast was half avocado and a chicken breast. Took my fish oil and vit d.
Lunch was half avocado, 5 oz beef patty, and 20 raspberries and I took my fish oil.
Dinner was a salad with canned tuna in water.
sleep was about 7 hours
mood was good as was energy level.
EASY GOBLET SQUATS AND SINGLE LEG RDLs TO TRY AND FIGURE OUT THIS KNEE ISSUE.
(I essentially took a rest week to hopefully make it better. Have a tournament this weekend and wanted it to be 100% for demonstration purposes. Not so. It may be time to do something more drastic with it. Hoped a rest week would fix the problem.)

Same story as yesterday. Crazy busy so major cliff notes version.
Breakfast: chicken breast and half avocado. fish oil
Lunch: approx 8 oz of ground organic beef and half avocado. fish oil and vit d
Dinner: consisted of me going out with friends and having drinks, by the time I got home I ate a little beef jerky and went to bed. It sucks but it is what it is. I guess that will be my cheat meal for the week.
drank my gallon of water
TRIPLES, DOUBLES AND SINGLES TO 455# (just over double bodyweight).
I use this a gauge to see where my overall strength levels are. If a double bodyweight deadlift feels overly heavy to me, then I know I need to change something.
