Have a few things I'm going to be focusing on with this log. Weight loss and diet will be updated every day... the other categories, only when there is something to report.

Workouts/Diet - Still trying to tackle this... I do have more muscle mass than I did months ago but still have most of the fat to lose. I'm currently approximately 165. My goal weight as of now is 150lbs. My plan is 5 weight lifting sessions a week and 2,000 calories a day. When I hit a plateau... I'll throw in some cardio/HIIT.

Dating/Social - My pictures are terrible right now yet I can still get random dates here and there if I put in effort every day swiping/messaging. My goal as of now is just to put in the daily actions necessary and see what happens. When I hit weight loss goal, I will buy new clothes and work on getting a few quality pics. Need to also get into a few meetups when Covid dies down.

LooksMax - I went to an aesthetician and had under eye fillers, as well as light botox for eye wrinkles and crows feet. It was $500 which is a pretty good price, seeing fillers alone usually average at about $1000 or so a vial. The difference between the before and afters is night and day. Very happy with the results and will be going back soon for a chemical peel. Also starting a basic skincare routine, consisting of retinol/hyaluronic acid with spf 30 in the morning and without spf at night. Also doing GLL clay mask facial a few times a week.

My teeth aren't horrible but I need a lot of work done. Crown, a few fillings, wisdom teeth, invisalign (teeth shifted after being out of braces for 12 years), and whitening/bonding. Bad news is this will all cost $15,000 plus... good news is that I can have a hollywood smile. Worth it.

As for my hair, I've been on finasteride since April 2019 and minoxidil/ru since mid April 2020. As long as I don't let my hair get too long or greasy, it doesn't look that bad. Hoping to see some gains from min/ru. Also trying out MK677 and Castor Oil. My aesthetician does PRP on her husband and says it works great but it's insanely expensive... at least $3,000 plus per year. If it was a one time thing, I'd do it right now but that's just too much to spend every year.

Hobbies - I don't really have any hobbies that I go outside of my house to do regularly. I want to change that and will take any suggestions into consideration. Currently just finished putting a new gun together. Planning on taking it and my pistol to a friend's range. Thinking about maybe doing a weekly self defense class, maybe Krav Maga. Also like things like fishing... recently went out for a date and caught a small shark. Would really like some other ideas.

Career/Financial - I'd love to start my own online business. Two of my friends make six figures net with their Amazon business... but seeing as I'm about to turn 30, I feel like it's just too risky to potentially waste more time and then the business fails. So I'm thinking of starting off with an AS in networking and eventually getting a BS and masters degree in network security/cyber security. Just getting the AS and some certs would help me make an extra 15k-20k a year, over my current job. AS would take a year and a half if I did summer classes. I can get about half of it paid for by the government (pay enough in taxes anyways haha).

Also planning on getting a side hustle doing Amazon Flex for about a year. You basically deliver packages for Amazon with your own vehicle and it pays decently.

Time management will be tough but luckily I have several hours each day at work that I can dedicate to getting schoolwork/errands done.

(Will update this from time to time)

Don't really focus on that tbh... just calories and trying to eat healthier. Macros is just going to make it too much of a pain in the ass for me tbh.

Bro....you already count calories. Making sure you get enough protein in is just part of the equation. That's a poor way of thinking

@chado - That's the only thing I pay attention to... but I probably don't get enough. But figured macros would matter more when I'm trying to bulk. I'm just trying to make this as easy to stick to as possible.

This.
It's just a suggestion and do what you want...

Or take and adhere to the advice of people here who are in extremely good shape

But you're really limiting potential progress by not tracking macros. Building muscle and losing fat is already hard enough and a very long process. Don't limit it even further by not taking advantage of what you can control.

How can you be tracking your calories and not knowing if you get enough protein? How are you tracking things?

I'll dogpile yet another opinion and say yeah, absolutely track your protein.

Track by label and serving size. Or for example, if I eat a lb of watermelon, I look up the calories online. Protein is easy enough to track but I'm not worrying about carbs/fat, as long as calories are where they need to be. Pain in the ass to try and hit a certain macro everyday. Shit needs to be as simple as possible for me to stick with it, at least for awhile. I lose fat regardless, as long as I stick with it...

Me personally - I take literally nothing. I eat pure carnivore (meat only, with some whiskey now and then).

I can't say whether that's healthy longterm - but my yearly blood tests come back healthy each time. Your mileage may vary.

7/07 - Off day. Hung out with girl after work and dropped her back off at midnight. Barely had time for hair regimen. She's kind of crazy and very promiscuous on top of it. I want to just drop it... but has a decent body and I'm back to no other options for time being.

Calories - 2600... Fucked, no excuse.

-

7/08 - 48 Sets

Pullups - 24 Sets

Chest - 24 Sets

Calories - 2200... better but not good enough. Tomorrow will be light calorie day to make up for past two days.

Went back to aesthetics office today. Had very light botox touch up for free. Had skincare discussion with one lady there and was trying to sell me everything under the sun. Chemical peels, which I'm interested in, but a shit ton of expensive products for my large pores, black heads, etc. Not really sure all of that it worth it, will wait on peels and anything else until after I lean down.
