I have just realised that I didn't update this last Saturday. I gained 1.6lb last check in and this week with the introduction of my blast, I am feeling a lot fuller and my weight is up again by 1.2lb. This is great considering I reduced my calories further this week and haven't had a re-feed either. No change to my waist which is ideal. I aim to drop another 5lb of fat but I am also hopeful of gaining some muscle now that I am back on a good course.
Next week I am away for 5 days but Codie is 4 weeks out from her show, so I will be joining her for cardio in the morning and will also be eating clean. I will train with her at the gym in the hotel too but treat it as a de-load as I doubt there will be sufficient kit for me to have a decent workout.
I did 45 minutes LISS cardio today and tomorrow I am going to train upper body on my new machine at the gym, so I will not do cardio at all. Whilst I am away I will be hitting 45 minutes / day cardio but when I return, I will likely reduce that to 30 minutes.
My wedding is 6 weeks away now and I have set myself a goal of getting as lean as I can by then and continuing when I am back. I just want to see how I can do coaching myself without the pressure of a competition looming. I have never had the motivation to diet down without having a competition, so it will be a good test of my will power.
My plan moving forward is to go as long as I can without a re-feed. I will put one in on a Wednesday or a Sunday as and when I feel completely drained. By removing the re-feed this week I have reduced my weekly calorie intake by 7,000 based on last week.
Weight - 216.4 (+1.2)
Waist - 80 (0)
