NUTRITION BLOG:
12/26 only.

Nibbled A little junk for Christmas, but since my weight has been dropping, I've been allowing myself a little leeway. I don't want to let my weight get less than 225.

Not much of an appetite today. Not really a good thing.

6am-
200mg caffeine

630am-
Beef jerky and raw almonds
2400mg fish oil
1000mg vitamin C

2pm-
2 Italian brats
2 small baked potatoes with sour cream and butter
About 1oz of Swiss cheese
2400mg fish oil

(Note: The carb intake here is not to fuel the workout later. It takes way longer than a few hours to convert to glycogen. The carb intake today is for tomorrow's workout, so my body can fully convert it to glycogen for energy).

415pm-
2.5 scoops Jack3D

7pm-postworkout
1 banana
1 orange
800mg ibuprofen

10pm-
Not much of an appetite for dinner. I ate a few pieces of bacon, about 8oz of grassfed steak and then really didn't feel like eating any more.
2400mg fish oil

My weight was back to 229 tonight, right after workout. Probably a little inflammation from some of the junk from yesterday.

11pm-
3 ZMA capsules
Roobios detox tea

I have included a video without a shirt only as a sort of "progress photo" to document overall appearance right after holiday eating. Obviously, I don't fake tan.

I really can't take a photo of myself that doesn't look dorky  :)

Can't say I'm not curious to see the difference myself!

Well, you with your tightness/soreness and me with my own pains...I think suffering is inevitable with this challenge.

I might check the results next week. I'm wondering what will happen if I am really clean for a few days with just the getups and no swings. Reduce the training load a little and see what happens.

Part of the reason for the 800mg of IBU was for inflammation and to offset some of the soreness and tightness that I knew I was going to have. I really try to avoid it, but during this challenge, I gotta do what I got to do.

Soo, will there be another "photo" after you stayed clean for a few days? Also, what's up with the ibuprofin after your morning workout? A way to possibly help ward off inflammation?
