Woke up at 232.8 and 19.7% body fat. The weight is still coming down. Having carbs in my diet has improved my training. I usually feel stronger. Cardio has evolved to the stair climber. The treadmill wasn’t doing it. We are in the planning phase of a couple new shirt designs as well as some new video content for the site. Stay tuned for that. I realized this morning I post my progress photos to facebook on Monday but not here. So here they are.
It’s been a bit since I posted something about my progress. Been tweaking things here and there. Trying to figure out what’s going on with my body. So today I’m 235.6 yes that is an increase in weight. However my body fat is still 19.9% according to the hand held device. Which means I’ve put on some muscle over the last two weeks and that is always a good thing. Cardio starts again today it full affect. Every morning. 30-40 minutes fasted on a treadmill and a few nights a week I’m going to hit the stair stepper at the gym. My diet has taken a major over haul the last week. I realized that I wasn’t eating enough and that I was actually afraid of carbs. Which I think is why my weight is now up but not my body fat. My strength is also going up. Which really makes me happy. I fit into a pair 36 inch jeans last week. Before I thought I could but was afraid to try. I did with wiggle room still so go me. Working slowly on getting a new wardrobe. That’s it. That’s all I got for now. Time for cardio.
There really hasn’t been much to report in terms of weight loss this week. My body is really fighting me. I got back up to 233. This morning I am again at 230.6, the upside is today is the first time my body fat has read under 20%. I am 19.8% according to my crappy hand held device. Training has been going good. I have been doing a ton of cardio. I did an hour yesterday morning and an hour and 45 minutes last night. About to do 20 minutes this morning before training legs. Plan on doing at least an hour this evening. Hitting legs again on Sunday. Should be fun. It is time like these that dieting is hard and frustrating because you dont see the progress you want. It is times like these you can make every excuse to quit. Fuck that I have come to far to just give up.
55 total lbs lost in 12 weeks. 230 on the dot this morning. Lost almost 4 lbs this week. Which is good since I didn’t lose anything for 3 days. I am 5 lbs away from goal weight. I am also able to fit into a 36 inch waist again. So I technically already achieved my goal. Going to keep going though and see where I land. Sundays are usually my cheat meal. However I am so close to getting out of the 230’s I really don’t want to have one. I actually slept in a bit today. Doesn’t happen very often but I am guessing my body really needed it.
