To me, Keto diets are best when "broken" every week or two (or three, or four) with pretty much anything goes for a day or two.  That's what the Anabolic DIet prescribed anyway and how I followed it when I ran it in 2013 and I had very, very good results.  

Totally get the mental days too.  Take your time and you'll get back on track soon.

Finally managed to do left hand 180s. 

The wrist is still tweaky, but with very strict form...I was able to get the full range of motion, without pain too boot!

Even without left thumb...was able to do other Sledge movements with left hand.  Incredibly pleased with this.

Left thumb is healing...sort of.  Not sure if covered with gauze or airing is better at this point.

@temmmeeee is coming by today (Saturday) to get openers and workout/hang.  Will be great to see him.

Here's the Frankenthumb!

Feb.4th

a.m. BW 258

Cal. , Fat , Protein, Carb  Still on Keto...didn't track totals due to it being Superbowl Sunday

 

Sledge Front Lever (10).  2/4, 3/4, 3/4, 3/6.  Reps/29.  TV/290

Sledge 180deg (5).  3/0, 4/0, 4/0, 4/0.  Reps/14.   TV/70

Notes: 

Looking back over this log, I'm increasing mass or volume consistently.  Feels good.

Left wrist is close to recovered...just some minor tweaks here and there.  Still babying it.

Left Thumb is still slightly swollen.  Gonna be one ugly scar.  Lucky I can do most of my sledge work without my thumb.

Feb. 6th

a.m. BW 256

Cal., Fat, Protein, Carb   Kept Keto but couldn't really track these foods.  Didn't bother guessing.

 

Platform Double Sledge (33).   1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32.  Reps/63.  TV 2079

IM Hub (50).  0/4, 0/4, 0/5, 0/6, 0/5, 0/5, 0/5, 0/5, 0/5.  Reps/44.  TV 2200

Blob Curls (39.6).  0/1, 0/1, 0/1, 0/1, 0/1, 0/1, 0/1, 0/1.  Reps/8.  TV 317

 

Notes:

First time to put myself out there on the Platform Double Sledge since my surgery.  Really killed it...even without my left thumb.

Anyone at Gripmas would understand this accomplishment.  These were (IMO) more strict than any I saw at the Comp.

Goes to show that specificity training pays huge dividends.

RH Hub work felt easy, happy with workout.  Tried one lefty...dumb move.  Super painful...may have ripped an inner stitch.

Working my weights up on blob curls.  No doubles today, but kept testing well so I stuck with it.

Notes:

Circus Dumbbell pulls were much higher than usual.  Coming off the ground explosively. 

Left wrist twinge-y...but getting much stronger.

I took the stitches out of the left thumb...the were no longer doing anything.  Cut out lots of dead skin.  Looks pretty good considering.  Still very tender.

I've slacked big time on my log.  I did learn a lot by logging for a straight month.  One...I prefer Intermittant logging.  Two...while logging holds one accountable...it doesn't keep one from slacking.

Prior too...and then after 4ForFeb...I went on a huge display if gluttony ballooning to 282.  Granted in my case...a good 85% if that is water.  After duping water through a diuretic,  ill probably be in the 160s tomorrow and 150s by the weekend.  The big thing with me and weight is my heart.  It doesn't like the extra stress.  Few people knew I was carrying 176 until my weigh in...because I have a large frame.

I need to drop weight and get going in my goals...MM3 being my major one.  In also going to start training for 4ForFeb2 once I acquire a Legends Anvil.  Its not a minor purchase at all...but compared to owning and buying even just 2 anvils..its a freaking steal.  Even used Anvils on Craigslist are insane!

Anyway...I'm happy Spring is coming soon...my fingers crack like crazy in the Winter.  Ill be happy to be done with it.

I got an hour to work out before the wifey wakes.  Swoosh!  (Flys away)

Quickly walks in, stretches his hand out to the horizon.....'NATE!!!'....but he's too late.... Nate's silhouet getting smaller in the far distance, disappearing against the first glimpses of the upcoming sun . A  few fine feathers on the ground. Darn it. He's pretty quick for that big frame. I smiled. It's going to be allright, yeah....it's gonna be allright.
