    Day 8:

    Yesterday was a good day. Took my pills slightly different, I took a Sesaglow at 620am and at 1230pm and then at 430 pm before my workout, with red acid at 620 and 430. This seemed to work good, I was energetic at the gym and didn't feel fatigued until the end, and I still felt like I had more in me. Also, I was able to get the 75s back up for a few reps of DB presses so I was very happy. And I did my personal best 245x3 squats. I'm hoping by January to load up 3 plates so we'll see. I want to increase the volume of my workouts because I'm leaving still pretty energetic. I think I'm going to start adding 1-2 new things per muscle group. I have to read around and see what people say.

    My diet was pretty good yesterday. I'm eating more than it seems from my brief description above. Here was what yesterday looked like.

    1.5 cups Kashi (Go Lean .75cups / Crunch .75cups) 1 cup FF Milk
    Plum
    7oz chicken w/snow peas onions mushrooms and no sugar added organic tomato sauce.
    banana
    6 oz sweet potato w/ 1 cup egg white
    5 oz chicken w/snow peas onions mushrooms and no sugar added organic tomato sauce.

    Drank alot of water, mostly after 7pm though, going to try and space it out throughout the day.

    I started using the grippers as well and found out I'm pretty weak! I can close the HG100s with both hands, and pretty much the HG150 with my right, but its a real struggle with my left. I can get the HG200 almost close with my right and almost parallel with my left, but I can't hold it there. Its alot of fun though, I can't wait till I develop some strength in my grip and forearms.

    And I almost forgot! I weighed in yesterday at 181.4, down from 183.6 last monday! I think that was mostly fat loss because I've been excelling in my lifts and feel a little bit leaner. Also, vascualrity is improving, I can almost see the vein that runs on the top of the bicep.

    ^ I do have to take out the trash later.....


    Day 9:

    Yesterday went well. Took my RA/SG same time as the day before. I ran around 7pm, not sure how far but turned around when I was tired and it started to get pretty dark. Felt good although it wore on me quickly, it's been a while since I last ran outside. Nothing else to report, feeling good, and enjoying the supps as of so far.

    Day 10:

    Took the RA/SG the same way as the day before. Got to the gym around 530 so it was packed and had to modify my normal routine slightly. Started off with deadlifts and couldn't seem to focus entirely. Consequently I was only able to pull 255 for 2 reps and my form went to shit quickly. We moved on to some incline DB presses where I was much more focused. I was able to get up all my reps of all my sets minus the last rep of the last set, I needed my spotter on that one. Felt good after that. Then we did some dips and for the first time ever I was able to do 10 dips in one set. Then I fell off to 5 and 5 but still I was pretty excited to do 10 for the first time. I was pretty focused from then on and we ended with some hypers for a good stretch. It was a good workout, definetly had good energy and focus after that first set of sldl's.

    During the day I noticed I was pretty tired. I only got 6 hours of sleep the night before which may explain it but I'm pretty use to that. The best way to describe it is I would be wide awake then really tired for like 2-3 minutes then awake again. Part of it has to do with my extremely boring job but the other I'm not to sure. I have lots of energy but its all wasted sitting at a desk all day.

    My diet was pretty good as well. Kashi in the morning, Chicken sandwich on WW bread for lunch, Eggs and Sweet potato for dinner with 3 banana's, 2 apples and a tiny bit of peanut butter throughout the day. A little low on the water probably around a gallon, I just wasn't thirsty much of the day. I'll work on that today.

    Thats all for today...

    Day 11:

    Pretty average day yesterday. Had my Kashi in the morning followed by apple, tuna sandwich, apple, peanut butter jelly on WW. Around 530ish I did some cardio. It was a little cold so I put on some heavier clothes and set out. Made it about 1 mile down the road and was freezing. I walked for a few then ran back so maybe 1.5 miles running / .5 walking? All I know is I was tired as hell and cold. And I was sweatng like a beast. Finished off the days meals with brown rice, chicken and green beans, and a couple tbsp's of PB about 45 min before bed. Got to sleep around 1045 so I got a good 7.5 hours of sleep. That was totally the problem before because I feel super awake and refreshed this morning.

    Also, bonus happy moment for me this morning. Its decently cold out (45deg) so I grabbed a long sleeve polo I bought last december. Its a Large and it was always decently tight on me until I hung it up in march for the summer. I put it on today and damn, it huge! Best part is I've only dropped maybe 8-10lbs since then, but I must have dropped some decent BF! Anyway, that was my excitement for the morning lol. Back to being bored at work. I'll update for the weekend on Monday most likely.

    Day 12/13/14:

    Friday went great. Had a good workout and felt generally good all day. Focus in the gym is great and the fact that I'm not getting weaker is awesome. My diet was also good on friday.

    The weekend also went well, although I have noticed something about the appetite supression of the RA. It seems like when I have something to do my hunger is easily controllable and suppressed, but when I'm totally bored or just sitting around watching football like this wekeend, my hunger/desire to eat is still pretty strong. I pretty much expected this, all my life I grew up eating whenever I was bored and I still have trouble breaking this habit. But atleast now, when I eat when I'm bored its very healthy and not terrible for me.

    Also, since I have 2 tiny mirros in my entire apartment, I snapped a few pictures on saturday morning and I think it appears as though my mid section is reducing slightly. The old love handles and shrinking. Still no change in the waist size but I don't expect big changes just because I have a bit of loose skin and probably a wide waist, but its doesn't bother me because I'm wearing sz34 jeans and I used to wear 44's so I'm happy.....

    2 weeks left and I very excited to see how this works out for me. If the results are really starting to get awesome I mgiht do another 30 days on the RA and cut till thanksgiving. Then It will be bulking time and I'll be looking to put on some serious mass.

    Day 15:

    Big time dissapointment yesterday. Weighed in at 183 again. I guess its not a huge deal seeing is how by the time I weigh in I've eaten 3/5 of my meals and drank a gallon of water but still I was hoping to see 17X for the first time in 10 years. Well, I guess theres always next week! Lifting went well, maxed out on squat again, so I'm up to 250x3 so hopefully I'll make it to 315 by the end of the year. Db Presses were a little weak but I'm ok with that. Diet was pretty damn good yesterday, resisted the urge to have mini pb snacks once I got home and had a smaller dinner than normal as a result of my upsetting weigh in. Barring any rain tonight I'm heading out on the bike for a good 10-15 miles. Gotta work that fat off some way!

    Day 16:

    Well I finally got back on my bike yesterday. It was really cold and I definetly could have ridden longer then 8 miles energy wise, but my hands were so freakin cold I had to go in. I was pretty tired at first but once I hit mile 2 my body like woke up and I was full of energy. I should have no problem getting into the 15 mile zone tomorrow, weather permitting. Dosing was same as normal yesterday, with RA about 45 minutes before I rode. Diet was pretty good, I'm finding myself hungry at night from 8pm and on. I don't really have nything good to snack on so I usually just have a couple spoonfuls of PB and Jelly but I'm think thats becoming detremental to my progress. I'm not sure what to substitute in thats less calories but just as filling. I used to eat raisins alot but they are also decently high calorie per serving. Maybe I should buy some Whey and start having shakes at night, those usually hold me over until I go to sleep. Thats all for today....

    Day 17:

    Had a great workout last night. My lifting partner skipped so I was solo which sucks usually cause its incline DB press day and I usually can't get the weight up wihout a spotter. But I was able to get up what I needed without him! I was pretty excited. I was a little weak for dips but by the time I hit the deadlift mat I was feeling great. I felt strong though all my sets and was sweating like crazy as usual. Once I finised everything I had planned (DB press, Dips, Deads, Hypers, pushdowns) I was still very energetic so I did 3 quick sets of Squats to get a nice stretch.

    IMO I ate pretty good yesterday. Kashi in the morning, apple/bana snacks, Tuna for lunch on WW, PBJ on WW snakc, Eqq whites and Sweet potato for dinner, and 1-1.5 tbsp pbj for late snack. I have to say I was decently hungry thoughout the early morning after breakfast. By the time lunch came and gone my hunger slowly dissapated. After dinner I was pretty good until about 10ish when I had a little rumble so I ate some PB. All together the appetite suppression is there just not overwhelmingly strong, you still need will power lol!

    Anyway, I'll be forcing myself to either run or bike this afternoon, so hopefully it doesn't rain. That's all....

    Day 18:

    Well I was already to go for a nice bike ride when I got home from work when it decided to SNOW! So needless to say I bitched out and didn't go. That makes yesterday my rest day which I know I'll be regretting on saturday. So yesterday was pretty average nothing exciting to report.

    There was 1 unusual thing though. I forgot my 6pm Sesaglow so I took it at 1030pm and went to bed at 1130, around 4am I woke up with a crazy pain in my right hip/stomach/lower abdomen area, went to the bathroom, got extremely light-headed and barely made it back to my bed. I layed their for atleast 5minutes in pain then passed out back to sleep as if nothing happened. This morning I didn't feel anything. I have absolutely no idea what the hell that was all about, but it sure was weird, not sure if it was caused by the sesaglow so late, or the massive amount of water I drank from 7pm-1130...who knows.....

    Days 19/20/21:

    Friday was a good workout. My lifting partner skipped out for the weekend and went to buffalo so I was solo but It didn't hurt much. All my lifts felt good, and I had good energy throughout. Lots of sweating becoming more noticable now.

    Diet was good, pretty much a replica of the day before. Also, I drank alot of water again, and got a good 8 hours of sleep which was nice. Overall I'd say this weekend was good, diet was clean and portions were smaller. I noticed that when I eat a meal, if I take my time and halfway through decide I've had enough, I will not be hungry, but if I don't stop and jsut keep eating I'll eat my entire portion. So for a couple of meals over the weekend, I just stopped eating halfway through and wasn't hungry for 3-4 hours atleast after.

    This is going to be the final 9 days comming up and I really want to see some nice results for the finish. This week will definetly be a test of my commitment so I'm going to work as hard as I need to accomplish something. If all goes well I might grab another bottle of RA2 and do another 30 days, but I'm still debating on when to start bulking as well.

    Day 22:

    Yesterday was weird. I took my RA/SG in the morning, then took a SG around 3pm, then RA around 5. Got to the gym at 530 and was feeling pretty good. I had a lot of energy during the beginning of my workout, but when I got to squatting I just ran out of steam. Same thing with situps, started strong with a 15rep set, then by the thrid set I could only get 5-6. Anyway, weighed in at 182.4 which is down from last week but still above 180! The goal for this week is to get the scale to say 17X.X, so I'll be working as hard as possible to get there. Diet was pretty damn good yesterday except I feel asleep on the couch around 930, woke up at 1015 starving so I had a few tbsp's of pbj (no bread). I tried not to but my stomach was yelling at me. Still, I should be under maintance by a few hundred calories yesterday.
    My waist is still stuck at a stubborn 37" which aggrivates me constantly, but I noticed it doesnt get bigger by the end of the day so I guess thats good. i think the main problem there is loose skin

    Alot of people recommend doing your abs, if you intend to work them hard, to do them first. I even do my abs before I go to gym. Leg raises, crunches, whatever I do on heavy days, do it first. Weights are a big drain, but doin abs which are already worked from EVERY lifting act (especially heavy) arent ready for much more, nevermind isolation of just abs. Pick AB days and do'em first. 3 heavy AB days(first) on medium-Lt-none lifting area days. Every heavy weight day end your workout with abs til u cant do no -more. No need to push it, tomorrows a heavy Ab day. Good luck.
