Path to Ketosis Gnosis: Day 27

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!
