Living life between the wild and the lazy - enjoying lavish food, (sometimes) regal fashion, and finding out the secrets every night keeps in its shadows. Effortless class, Mindful health, and Curious Behaviour.
It isn’t every something you can control.
The two weeks of intensive crazy has come and gone - I’m glad they happened, and I’m happy with the results.
Refeed day also happened, and I learned that coconut water does wonders for the dehydrated body. (Pretty sure I went through about 3-4 litres that day). Now however, I’m moving the pace to something a tad slower - aiming to drop 1.5lbs/week. At that rate, I should be at my goal (145lbs) by mid-june, still retaining most (if not all muscle) for then, as well as potentially even gaining some muscle.
The breakdown leaves me with
191g of protein
148g of carbs
38g of fats
I’m limiting artificial sugars, upping water consumption, and adding micros, like Omegas, Potassium, Mg:Cal, and a multi for good measure.
Cardio is now down to 350 kcals/session, x3 a week - but since the two week regime, I’ve really been getting into running, so I tend to at least do a 5k anyway. (Usually rounds out to almost 500 kcals/session) so I suppose it gives me a tiny bit more leeway to eyeball things instead of measuring them.
I’m trying to incorporate the following into each week:
3x running, minimum 5k, minimum 30 mins. running, 5 warm up, 5 cool-down.
1x rowing (Picked this up during the two weeks too - I quite enjoy the ERGS)
2x power yoga or hot power yoga
1x yin yoga
3x strength days - (legs, arms+chest, back+abs)
A bit crazy, but I really enjoy it, and am definitely giving myself a break day when I feel the need to. This does however, mean that I am pretty much hitting the gym every day. Hopefully, my application to work there will make me feel a tad less silly for being there so often!
My schedule for the next two weeks stacks interestingly:
Sat - Running, Yin Yoga
Sun - Back and Abs
Mon - Arms and Chest
Tues - Running
Wed - Legs
Thurs - Running and Rowing
Fri - Yoga x2
Sat - Arms and Chest + Rowing
Sun - Running
Mon - Legs
Tues - Back and Abs
Wed - Running
Thurs - Running and Yin Yoga
Fri - Yoga x2
Weigh in should be: 150lbs
Running hopefully will be at 6.5-7.0 continuously for 30 minutes minimum.
Hopefully rowing time will be around 21-22 minutes/5k
Anywho, FITNESS TIME - GONNA MAKE IT DOWN TO 18% BODYFAT BY MID-JULY.
