I have been quiet on here since going on my stag do. It ruined me for a good few days but I did do some training last week and managed to get back on track.
I went on Thursday 4th in the afternoon and beforehand did a pull session. Not my usual session, nothing heavy, just a lot of cable work. I was away Thursday, Friday and Saturday night and returned late on Sunday. Whilst I was out there, I slept very little, ate very little and drank a lot of booze.
I started ploughing food back in on Sunday and continued through to Tuesday. I also caught up on a lot of sleep and did very little else. On Wednesday I looked like utter sh!t and was very disappointed having left looking pretty good.
On Wednesday I started with 50 minutes LISS fasted cardio and kept this in until Saturday. I then had to travel down to London as I had 3 athletes competing in the Miami Pro show. I trained push on Wednesday, legs on Tuesday and pull on Friday. All really good sessions with PB's (will post these up separately).
I have also reduced my calories significantly by removing the carbs from my PPWO meal and reducing the intra carbs to 30g. My only carbs on training days are now from 30g HBCD and 150g Coco Pops. Non-training is zero direct carbs. Calories are around 2,200 on training days and 1,900 on non-training days.
My weight before leaving for my stag do was 214.2lb and my waist 80.5cm. This Saturday my weight was up 8.2lb and my waist 1.5cm. I was very distended, with indigestion and heartburn after Sunday-Tuesday eating junk. Although I had managed to get a lot of the excess water off with the diet and training from Wednesday to Saturday, there was more to come off.
On Sunday morning after a non-training day, I looked a lot better but as I had a long day ahead of me and was drained, I had a big breakfast at the hotel. I was on the go for 22 hours as I woke at 4am on Sunday and didn't arrive home until 2am and during this time had just 2 shakes. Codie and OI went to McDonalds and I ate a lot. I expected to wake up looking like sh!t this morning but looked awesome.
So that brings me to now... I have just been taken out for a meal by Codie to say thank you for coaching her. We went to Almost Famous and I had a big burger and we shared some fries and mac n' cheese balls. It was epic! We then went to a dessert place and I had a Sundae.
I imagine I will look a bit soft tomorrow after days in a row with off plan food but I will rectify it and then some by check in on Saturday.
Here are some pics...
So condition is definitely coming in as the weeks progress and I am much fuller. I will be following my diet plan now until I go to Mexico unless I get really drained and then I will refeed but the aim is to get as lean as I can in the remaining few weeks. I do have a lunch meeting tomorrow PWO but I will not go mad. Might even just have a drink but I will judge it on how I look in the morning.
Ideally by Saturday morning, I would hope to look better than the pictures above, have my waist back to 80cm and weigh around 217-218lb. This would mean I have reduced my waist back to its smallest and gained 3-4lb.
