Now onto OSB.....
Its Week 10! and guess what?... I have some super cool results to report on!
19/2/10 ( two weeks ago)
Body Fat: 18.1%
Weight: 66.0kg (last week)
Body Fat: 17.2%
Weight: 66.0kg I still can't believe i havent cracked this barrier yet....hmmm it must have been the greek yoghurt from brunch yesterday that has delighted me with the gift of fluid retention lol
Difference: 1.1% , 8.1ml
Difference to Date: 7.3%, 46.8ml
Which means i haven achieved both my goals for this weeks' W&M! So my goals for my next W&M in 2 weeks time are to be in the 16s for BF% and in the 70s for Skinfolds.
For anyone new to my blog i'd like to mention now that my ride has not been perfect and i highly doubt it will ever be. Such is life, you gotta take the highs with the lows. What this challenge has proven though is that an "all or nothing" mentality is NOT a pre-requisite for awesome results. HOWEVER, i do tend to stick to the 90% rule. I have 3-4 off the plan/treat meals most weeks. Mind you, i am not eating an entire block of cadbury white choc like i used to in the past, and no i am not talking about a 50g bar either haha. But i do enjoy good food and great cafes. Knowing that i can have a few treat meals is enough to keep my sanity and ultimately prevent me from the dreaded binge, which has only occured once in ten weeks.
I also want to add that cardio has not been a priority of late. I'm not making any excuses, call me lazy whatever but i really need to wake up 15mins earlier to fit it in! E.g last week i managed 3 x 45min outdoor strolls and 2 x 10 min runs, that was it. Again in the past, i always suicided myself to exhaustion with cardio to burn the fat. Now for all you figure girls out there, i know when you are going from lean to RIPPED it takes more cardio to do so, but for where i am right now, i am getting away with minimal cardio.
So what this feedback is telling me is that:
- Clean food 90% of the time is crucial
- Heavy weight training (4 days + 1 ab sess) is building me HEAPS of muscle mass which in turn is increasing my basal metabolic rate thus helping me burn fat pretty damn fast!
- Calorie deficit (i'm on about 1800cal/day, 33:33:33 Pro, Carb, Fat ) is allowing my body fat to drop nicely
- And until i STOP getting results I will just keep doing what i am doing.
DON'T FIX WHAT IS NOT BROKEN
I've also been asked quite a lot recently about what my goal body fat % and skinfolds are. Well to tell you the truth I am not 100% sure. Different people look different at various percentages and mls, so I am assuming that I would like to be somewhere between 12-14% and around the 60ml mark, but till i get there i won't know. Right now i am beginning to feel like a sexy bitch, but there are some areas i still need to work on - sexy six-pack and quads. I will post some progress pics at week 12.
I have an exact picture in my mind of how i WANT to look like (long term, not just for a week! lol) and i believe that i should achieve this in about 8-12 weeks time!
