One thing i wanna share with you is my ACCOUNTABILITY COUNTDOWN CALENDER.
In order to achieve great results i believe that it is vital that you track your progress - eg. workouts, weight, body fat, skins, and for me, most importantly 'nutrition 'habits'. That way, at the end of your challenge you can see why you have or have not succeeded.
Take a look at my ACC:
- Every monday i recorded my weight. Every fortnight i recorded my skins and body fat.
- I recorded days i did cardio.
- For me recording my weight training was not necessary - its part of my daily routine and something i do not have to motivate myself to do.
- I recorded TTOM (its interesting to see the food eaten around those times!)
- I recorded the 4 days that i was run- down and didnt train.
Orange = Nutrition according to plan
Yellow = Days when i have eaten a home made Peanut Butter Protein Bar (wed according to plan), other yellow days is when i have tucked into EXTRA PB or 85% Lindt Choc on top of my plan.
Pink = Treat meals, cheat meals, meals containing dairy, meals containing wheat (only one) or days that i completely lost the plot ( 2 only). Pink days most likely tipped me over my daily calories too.
1/2 Coloured: Eaten to plan first half of the day (usually till about 3pm), then it turned into a Pink or Yellow.
Orange: 28 days
Yellow: 6.5 days
Pink: 6.5 days
Orange: 24 days
Yellow: 10.5 days
Pink: 6.5 days
So you can CLEARLY see, the first 6 weeks were a lot cleaner than the second half of the challenge. Hence the reason i lossed:
5.4% BF, 33.4ml
1.7% BF, 12.4ml
BIG DIFFERENCE HEY!
So in order to achieve my OSB 2 goals i really need to cut down the number of Pink days and the number of extra Yellow days. So hell yeah, I WILL do it!
On a final note, i got to chat with my BFF Demi last night. As she lives in Greece now, we barely get to talk (apart from FB) let alone see each other. Dem's knowlege of training and food is incredible, so i picked her brain about getting into smokin condition (which is only one more round of OSB away!!!!!). She's says it how it is.
"You wanna be the best? You gotta eat clean and train F*kin hard. You gotta do what everyone else is NOT doing. There are no secrets."
So with that in mind i am pumped and i am focussed. I have about 40mls and 4-5% Body Fat that i AM gonna blast away...FOREVER. I will be posting progress pics every couple weeks for extra accountability too. So look out babes, with my new found attitude i will be smokin hot just like my girl Demi:
