Anyone getting shredded for summer? Get in here?

Well, I had been exercising every day other than Sunday and getting stronger bit by bit until I hurt my neck straining on pushups of all things almost 3 weeks ago. Haven't done shit since then, but I've been clean from tobacco and weed for what will be 2 weeks come Thursday and have lost a good few pounds from keeping my diet in check. Normally people gain when they quit tobacco. I think the lack of munchies from quitting weed at the same time is proving to be the biggest thing keeping my diet clean. Not only have I been able to control my hunger better, but I'm also eating much cleaner. I haven't eaten any sugar based sweets in at least a week, probably longer.

I've been sleeping like total shit and my back is fucked from this futon (just moved last minute at beginning of the month), but I just got a piece of memory foam for it so I'm hopeful my sleep improves. I've been a real zombie lately as a result. I now have a pool to go lay out at. Much to the dismay of the insecure men in this apartment complex. I have been getting a fair amount of looks from sexy and fit women, but I still pound the fat bottom. She's a better workout for me anyways.

You just picked up a chunk of memory foam to toss on the old futon for increased comfort? That's funny to me for some reason. Like it's gonna make a shitty futon any better. Maybe it will, what the fuck do I know about futons and foam.

I had a futon for years that had a mattress so beat down it was about as thick as a heavy potholder. Wish I'd known about Floppy D's memory foam fix.

We'll see how it goes. This futon is waaaay more firm than any other I've had in the past. And I've had a few that I've gotten great sleep on over the years. The memory foam was my Mom's suggestion. She had been using a piece on the futon in the guest room up at their place and apparently it got good reviews. It might not fix everything, but it will be a guaranteed improvement. I'm confident I'll get more than 2 or 3 hrs of consecutive sleep for the first time in a couple weeks now.

How do I check body fat percentage

Are you a member of a decent gym? They typically have trainers who are decent with calipers. Google body fat testing in your area for options. 

Calipers are fine for a ballpark reading/number but there are more exact tests such as hyrdrostatic testing.

I got this scale off Amazon for 40 bucks by renpho. measures all sorts of things like body fat. says I am 15 percent body fat. my friend who has had 6 dexa scans says it is very accurate comparatively.  he says people wildly underestimate body fat percentage. he is 19% on the scale with a 6 pack. he is super impressed that I can hold 15 or under year round naturally.  it's a dope scale btw logs via bluetooth to your phone and keeps charts etc.

Haha will do my man

Ok I'm at my May 1st weight where I started and my lifting stopped. Not worried though, disgusted but back at it.

Down to a hair under 185 in the mornings while dressed in shorts and a t-shirt. And this is without exercising in a month now. Gonna get back to it after I hopefully get some nerve relief from an epidural this Thursday.

How did this weekend of bellators and UFC treat you?

Anyone use an ECA stack to help shave off the last bit? I'm pretty close to the point of seeing definition in abs but have hit a plateau in getting my BF much lower

For the first time in over 10 yrs I'm weighing in wearing shorts and a t-shirt at under 180 lbs. I think the last time this happened I was in good shape and got sick as fuck with a stomach flu (heat exhaustion?) for a few days after a big run in gnarly heat. Really need to get back to strength training but I'm really happy my weight is where it is. I'm eating very differently than I had been a few months ago.

My dessert type of things lately have been non-existent. But if I do feel like having something it'll probably be a protein drink or a Mexican frozen fruit bar. Had a couple really good choco chip cookies the other day and didn't feel too good after having them. I've got my overnight oats soaking with chia seeds, peanut butter, walnuts, and frozen blueberries right now and I think that'll be my dessert tonight.

I've been getting back out for some brisk strolls around town and instead of using that as an opportunity to eat more I'm just going without. I feel pretty damn dialed in. Once I expand my food preparing abilities and get back on my stremf shit I'm gonna be quite the cutie patootie. Going to the A's wildcard game tomorrow so I'm sure I'm gonna eat a bunch of delicious food at a huge tailgate. No ragrets.

Ditch the Aspirin, which isn't necessary at all and you don't want to be taking excessive amounts of it.

Main benefit of the EC stack to me is it helps suppress your appetite making dieting a bit easier.

Thanks, tried it today and felt pretty cracked out by the end of the day, I think I'll stick with it for a couple more days but the ephedrine definitely makes me feel weird
