Day 87

It’s raining men hallelujah…

Last night around 9:30 a tropical storm hit and it’s been pouring ever since. It’s nice to wake up to the pitta pat of rain. I love this sound. Reminds me when I was a kid staying at my grandmother’s coast house. The sound as the rain hit the tin roof the smell in the air just before the rain started.

The only down side is my gym is outside and only partially covered so I won’t be training outside today. That’s also a problem with wet season but I’ll address that after my morning measurements.

Acetone today was green 4 flashes.

Weigh in: I was up 0.2 pound to 216.4  (nothing really and considering I didn’t train yesterday due to my knees and hips.)


Due to the rain training outside is not an option.

I will train using a door gym my brother-in-law had but never used and gave to us.

It’s nothing fancy but will do the job nicely.

Today’s workout will be Back.

Lat pulldowns, 4-5 sets 12-15 reps, 1 minute rest between sets

One arm rows, 4 sets 8-10 reps,  1 minute between sets

Straight arm pulldowns, 5 sets x 15 reps, 45 seconds rest

Seated rows, 4 sets 10-12 reps 1 minute rest

And good mornings using the cables as resistance ,5 sets x 15 reps, 45 seconds

The workout was intense as we could not use massive amounts of weight we reduced the time between sets around 45 seconds to 1 minute. Kauri and I certainally got our sweat on. One hour and ten minutes later we are done.


Kauri made pancakes. We also had bacon, cheese and eggs so I thought I would make a burger. Next time I’ll make the pancakes into waffles and add a meat patty but it worked well and tasted fantastic.

Bacon, eggs then the melted cheese and some lettuce.

I also had the bullet decaf to wash it down. Around 1400 calories for the morning.

This morning I was going over a training routine for a close friend. I actually still get excited doing this. Like with keto, I really enjoy seeing the results. I know she is going to do well. She’s determined, focused and driven. If anything I wish I could be there to train her one on one but I have no doubt she will kick ass.

Morning snack /lunch

I’m going for the chia pudding today. Quick and easy to digest. Filling and taste amazing, ticks all the boxes.

Afternoon snack

I’ve gone for a protein shake today with the usual spinach, almond milk and protein powder.

Calories up to now 2262 carbs 3%, protein 17%, fat 80%.


Roast chicken and a large salad mixed leaves, blue cheese dressing, olive oil, cucumber and some hazelnuts on the side.

I’m actually 70 calories short but today that’s fine.
