Surprising note. In addition to losing a lot of strength and therefore doing less weight and less volume than I would have just a few weeks ago, and foregoing a lot of the isolation work I would normally do, it took 4 whole days for me to recover from a squat session. Very sore with doms for 2 days. Lingering soreness for 2 days after.
Long overdue, but today was my first day back in the gym since starting keto. Basically came in with the purpose of resetting my routine and assessing where my numbers in strength are currently at. I decided to keep it short and to the point, focusing only on the main compound lifts. My form felt good though the previously light weight felt surprisingly challenging towards the last few reps. Not that bummed about the strength loss because I'm excited to get stronger again, excited to experience the process of getting to my old numbers and then smashing them. But I will admit this was surprisingly challenging. I am sure I will be sore tomorrow. Onward and upward!

Currently injesting the audiobook 'Primal Fat Burner'. The last 2 days I've eaten very little. I have taken my butter and oil bulletproof coffee in the morning, coffee with half and half throughout the day and otherwise fasted until the evening. Yesterday I consumed one cheese stick, two small packages of raw almonds, one quest bar, and a spoonful of peanut butter. Today I had one quest bar, a few raw spinach leaves and 2 hard boiled eggs. Feelings of hunger are interestingly very minimal if existing at all.
