No gym today. Wife is having car trouble so I’m home ready to take it into the shop.


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #152

Turns out it was a bad starter, one of the few things I had figured on. $240 to fix.


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #153

Wife is up and running, just in time for the kids to be home from school for snow. :stuck_out_tongue:

Broke below 170lbs this morning. The cut is working. I hate it. It’s not fun dieting on 1300 calories. I want to eat and puke at the same time, all the time. Food is all I’m thinking about. Keep telling myself 4 more weeks to my 160 lb goal and then we take stock and reassess. Will I have a 6 pack by then? Time will tell. Can’t wait to triple my food intake because fuck this.

Getting there.

Chris, congratulations once again on your program and staying the course. And I guess you really are off the Chef Boyardee and ginger ale. :sunglasses:


(Chris - carnivoremuscle.com) #160

Lol, thanks Dougie. (tell me if you hate that nickname)

In my experience, cheating leads to binging, every single time. I can’t afford to eat an air-fried sweet potato fry, because I’ll eat all of them. Same with ice cream. I also know a lot more now, than I did 8 years ago when I started that bulk (as my wife was becoming more and more pregnant with Miss Arya). I’m grateful for that knowledge and the years and experience that led to it.
