Ok, Today I definitely felt fatigued. Was fine at first upon waking, but with two hours by the time I got to work, I felt less alert and more lethargic than usual. Surprising, because yesterday on day 2 and a half of the diet, I was feeling energetic and normal. Guess it took a bit time for the effects to kick in...
Felt super tired and nauseous, probably from lack of calories. I was craving my snack shake, so I chugged that only 1.5 hours after my lunch shake. Had my dinner shake 1.5 hours after that, and decided to go to the gym early an hour after dinner shake, when I was still fresh from that shake.
Pop a packet of Animal Rage.
Feel a bit tired at the gym, even though I was on 2 days rest. Missed my set of squats, had to de-load by 10 lbs.... very demoralizing! Almost though of quitting.
Squat: 45x5, 95x5, 135x5, 185x5, 235x4 (missed last rep), 235x4 (shitty form, bad depth, missed last rep), 225x4 (de-loaded 10 lbs, still missed my last rep from fatigue)
Press: 45x5, 95x5, 110x5, 110x4 (missed last rep), 110x4 (missed last rep), 105x5.
Deadlift: 225x5, 275x5, 335x4 (missed 5th rep... and I was supposed to do 345x5... but gave up
Did chinups 3x8 and then called it a day.
Came home, chugged my post-workout shake, hour later chugged my dinner shake. Unfortunately doubled up on the almond butter because I was so starving.
Ugh! Is this normal? Is this my body just adapting to the sudden decrease in calories/ will it level out or will i continue to feel as fatigued and see m lifts go down?
