    Lifting is going well, added an extra 4th day to my sessions, a high rep banded glute and ab circuit day to keep my motivation high. Good for the days when the kids aren't cooperating it can be done in 20 min and anywhere in the house.

    Hope everyone is doing well!

    Is there a tack stuck in the heel of your right foot? Did you recently step on a lego?

    Definitely a Lego. Does it matter?

    Based on many of your photos, It looks like you step on a lot of painful objects and then can't put any weight on your heel(s) 🤕

    Try to be more careful in the future

    Next time I will wear my heels for photos if it makes you feel better :)

    This group will hold you to that, ha!!



    Quick update. So my wife wanted to experience dieting pain. So we 1-2x a week, i will be incorporating PSMF into our schedules. Today's the first day and it sucks. It still works with Keto for me, so why not. I did take a few days off for a bday party and memorial day, so obviously i am up in weight.

    Dealing with my typical struggles with training. I hate training at home and I am getting tired of the same routines. Thinking I might consider picking up AX-1 or AX-2 just for something different. I did JeFit but it seems i prefer follow along while i train at home and Beachbody programs are just getting old for me.

    I wouldn't recommend it. High heels are bad for you in the long run. I leave it to you to Google the info on that ;)

    We’re all nice to each other here. You can’t post unless you’re nice

    4tz3ypnd1gcg.jpg

    Can you post the recipes if it’s not too much hassle. I like carbs, but I’d def eat this

    Sure. Most of my recipes scale very easily to allow for more or less carbs. For example, instead of fajita veggies for my wife, she gets rice. She also doesn't do sour cream. So less fat, more carbs.

    Milkshake
    8 oz of nut milk (non sweetened vanilla almond milk)
    2 tbsp half/half (I use non sugar added) or 2 tbsp heavy cream
    1 scoop favorite protein powder (I use PEScience or Quest)
    1 serving of chocolate chips (I use Lily's for keto)
    1/4 tsp xantham gum (2g)
    1 cup ice

    Combined all the ingredients besides the chocolate chips. Blend to a smooth and thick texture. Add the chocolate chips, blend for 5-15 seconds (less for bigger chucks of chocolate chips). Serve in a fancy *kitten* glass and top with whipped cream.

    Taco (in a bowl or wrap)

    1 lb of skinless/boneless chicken thighs (set them out for 30-60 minutes prior to cooking)

    Flatten out thighs to an equal size. Top with a little olive/avocado oil and taco seasoning. Let sit for 10 minutes. And grill.

    The Lemon Kitchen Taco Seasoning

    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1/2 tsp chile powder
    1 tbsp smoked paprika
    1 tbsp ground cumin
    1/4 tsp pepper
    1/2 tsp salt


    The Lemon Kitchen Fajita

    1/2 Green Pepper (~75g)
    1/2 Red Pepper (~75g)
    1/2 Red Onion (~75g)
    1 Tbsp Olive Oil (Divided)
    1 Tbsp Cilantro
    1 Tsp Salt

    Slice peppers into long strands and add to bowl. Slice onions lengthwise and add to the bowl. Top veggies with half the olive oil. Add cilantro and salt. Let sit for 5 minutes. In a frying pan, add the remaining olive oil, add the veggies, and fry. Serve with your favorite mexican foods.

    The Lemon Kitchen Guacamole

    2 Medium Avocados (~125g)
    1/4 Red Onion (~20g)
    1/2 Fresh Lime (juice and zested)
    2 Garlic Cloves
    1/2 Roma Tomato (diced)
    1 Tbsp Cilantro
    1 Tsp Salt


    Finely dice red onions and put them into a bowl. Zest half a lime onto the onions and then add the juice of half of a lime. Set aside for 30 minutes. Finely dice garlic cloves and set aside for 15 minutes while onions are sitting. After rest time, cut and mash avocado in the bowl of onions. Add in garlic and dice tomatoes. Mix thoroughly. Add in cilantro and salt. Mix thoroughly.

    Let me know if you have questions.

    @psuLemon Oh I do not envy you. I am still here trying/struggling to maintain and have to stuff my face with food whenever I see it :p
    Your food looks really good thanks for the recipes!

    lol. I've been there... my solution was two sets of clothes. My bulk clothes and a set for when I'm near the bottom of a cut. Makes a huge difference. ;)
