Rebel Ray’s Cutting Log: Week 6

Introduction

Welcome to week 6 of my cutting log!!

Please check out my cutting procedure and week 5 (and week 1, 2, 3, and 4)of cut to get up to speed on what I am doing.

This has been an epic journey of resilience thus far. I am very proud of myself for and think I deserve a pat on the back for how well I have handled my cut despite the bullshit going on with my employment situation.

This process has been a personal test of my character despite a bad situation in another area of my life. So I will take a second to pat myself on the back. 

I would also like to thank you guys for supporting me and keeping my spirits high throughout this process. 

I easily could have gone into another bout of depression and done nothing but mope and feel sorry for myself. 

However, I choose to stay committed to my goals and I owe a large part of that to this community. Even this is still growing, the smallest amount of support goes a long way.

Thanks you guys. I really mean that. 

Anyway, on to my log and this week's results. FYI, this will probably be quick one this week as nothing much has really changed in my routine. 

My Weight

This week I am down to 211 lbs. I am one pound away from goal of losing 15 over the course of this weight cut. 

I am fucking stoked. I am one step closer to getting back into the "lean" status. My abs are slowly coming now. Thank God!

I notice that I carry a lot of fat on my face. It is definitely more of a circle shape than an oval. I will have to lose a lot of fat to see a difference there. We will see. 

My eventual goal is to get down the 185 to 190 lbs again and be shredded and strong. That might take one or two more cutting cycles though. That will be a goal for 2017. 

Keeping my life moving guys. The weight is slowly coming off and I am happy to keep seeing results. 

Diet And Exercise

I have continued to pull two-a-days in the gym. An hour of cardio in the morning and 25 minutes at night. This is along with lifting 4 times a week.  

I think this is keeping the fat loss consistent because I am burning so many so calories. 

My body is holding up pretty well though. No signs of stress or fatigue. I usually take Saturdays off and do nothing anyway. Just to give my body a rest from the grind. 

My diet averaged 1735 calories/day. 234 grams of protein, 82 grams of carbs, and 47 grams of fats. 

The calories are slightly (by about 50-100 calories) up due to the increased physical activity I am doing. I thought it was okay to add a couple extra to compensate for the ones I burn. As long as the large large caloric deficit is still maintained. 

Supplements

I added T3 to my stack for my research (cough cough). I am giving this a try to see if I can accelerate fat loss. I tested it this week with lower doses.

I am tapering up to 50-60 mg/day. Then I will research that dosage daily for 2 weeks and then taper down again. I want see how much it affects my fat loss. 

I think this could really help me out. We will know for sure soon. I am excited to see the results. 

The ostarine and epi andro are still working out very well. My performance and strength is being maintained in the gym.

You guys know I have lost a bit of strength. But I do not really give a shit. I am seeing fat loss and results so I suffer a bot of strength loss. 

Plus I will gain it back soon enough anyways. I am not worried about it at all. These things just take time. 

My Thoughts

I am 2/3 of the way done with my fat loss phase. Cannot believe it. I have come a long way. I have 3 more weeks to go.

I am getting down to the last phase of things. So far, so good. I am sticking to my goals and procedure despite things changing in other areas of my life. Lets see how it goes.

I started my temporary job this week. It is boring as hell but it is job that pays so I cannot complain. Better than being broke.

I also might of found a paying job that is more convenient for my lifestyle. We will see.   Please keep your fingers crossed for me. I will keep you posted. 

Conclusion

There you go. That is my update this. I am very close to hitting my goal. One pound way. Way ahead of schedule. 

Check out my cut procedure and my previous weeks (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). See how I got here.  

Other shit in my life seems to be coming together as well. I am excited.  

Thanks so much for keeping the hope the alive and supporting me so much.
