    Default My journey to the top

    Hey guys!

    I'm just starting out my fourth contest diet, and I thought I'll track my progress here, to keep myself motivated and inspired

    I have roughly 25 weeks to go, and I DO need those weeks, since I've managed to put on way too much (fat that is) since my last show.

    Goal in 25 weeks: 140lbs.
    Starting weight: 185lbs

    I will try keto this time (targeted), and I won't have cheating days.
    I'll update my weight progress every Sunday morning.

    My weight training will consist of 3-4 days a week, full body circuit (every other day), and the cardio starts with 5 powerwalks a week, 40 min, and some occasional biking.

    Enjoy my ride

    Thumbs up

    Thanks Great with some travelling company!



    Yesterday was a pain, cutting calories always sucks in the beginning, and I'm only on my 5th day. But I hung in there, and today I got my reward... The scale was down to 177.8, compared to yesterdays 180.2. Yeeeeey!! I love it in the beginning when the weight loss is so easy and fast !! I wish it would continue that way forever...!! But if I do everything right, I usually end up with 1-1.5 lbs a week. And I have to settle with that.

    Right now, I'm getting ready for my power walk. Let's go, ladies!!!!

    Sunday's wheigh in ended up at 177 blank. Not TOO exciting, but still ok. My goal for next sunday is now set to 175. I better reach it, my average needs to be on 1.8lbs every week in order to make it on time. Since the progress usually slows down as time goes, I need to push it hard in the beginning.

    My work out today was no cardio, but 45min weight training. I focused on Legs and Shoulders, with one extra excersise each. Hopefully I'll be a bit sore tomorrow... :P

    Ya know that's what the cheat meal is supposed to do...rev your metabolism back up so that the faster weightloss continues. Don't go overboard but I wouldn't cut it out. Maybe do a small controlled cheat once every two weeks.

    Yeah, overboard is my middle name, that's why I'm cutting them out this first period... But you're right, and I forgot to mention that I will add a "recupperation-day" every Saturday a bit further down the road, when I will be on maintenance level calorie wise, and add some carbs. But I don't count that as proper cheating

    My plan is to, as I get leaner, leave the targeted keto. I will then use Lyle McDonald's "Ultimate Diet." If you're interested, check out www.bodyrecomposition.com for more info. Or, just stay tuned, as I will share my changes in this journal
