I decided I will cycle and take a planned break starting today. I think I needed a fresh batch of hcg anyway. But I'm going straight into P3 today without even waiting the 2 days to let it clear and see what happens. I'm taking a week and a half off and plan on starting again on the 26th.
My plan is to lose 10lbs a month. I'm in no hurry since I've been heavy for 2 years now. I decided I don't want to rush this and let it become too easy so I take it for granted.
Yay! Its good to see the 170s. Tells you that its so relative. Before my first round of hcg the heaviest I'd ever been was 175 and I thought that was sooooo huge. And now I'm happy to be in the 170s and feel so much thinner. Lol. This time around I will not let myself gain all the weight back...thanks to the book Why We Get Fat and know what carbs really does to me.
I decided I'm gonna stick it out til the end of the month. Except I'll be taking a short break next week because for
Nothing new to report. I'm back to trending downwards. Eating the same thing. No workout yesterday.
I was hoping for a bigger loss, but oh well. I totally ruined my average with the weekend cheat.
My food yesterday was the same. Egg whites, apple, spinach.
50 spiderman lunges
5 Set of 5 shoulder press with 20lbs and assisted pullups.
5 Set of 3 different death jumps
Sprinting up hill 3 sets.
I didn't stay quite on protocal yesterday, thus the 1.5lb gain. I'm not too worried because during the week is really easy for me to stay on protocal so I know I'll catch up again this week. I'm considering this to be my last week before taking 2 weeks off to cycle. But still playing it by ear.
I'm going backwards. Well now I know if you cheat 1 day, it effects at least the next couple days. I went to a party last night and I didn't eat a thing. My friend went all out and made tons of food, lamb meatballs, caprese salad, stuffed peppers, buttered chicken sliders, cookies, cupcakes....etc...etc. But I didn't eat or drink anything and I felt fine.
I think the gain no loss if from lack of drinking water. I usually wake up having to go to the batchroom, but today I woke up dry.
I gained half a pound from my over indulgence yesterday. That's better then I'd expected considering. I'm okay with that. It was sort of worth it to me.
Today I will be doing kettlebell swings and going for long walks to make up for it. I love kettlebell swings. They work every muscle...abs, glutes, arms...the perfect workout.
Glad to see I haven't stalled yet. I had an emotionally disappointing day yesterday and felt like eating something. I only emotionally felt like eating something though to make me feel better. But the thought of actually putting something in my mouth wasn't appealing so I didn't. Plus I'm pretty full all the time.
I did work out. My workout was:
5 sets of 1 legged 1 armed back rows with 25lbs.
Then alternating for 4 sets:
500 meters as fast as I can on rowing machine
I guess my 2lb loss yesterday was indeed too good to be true. But that's okay. I realize that stalls happen around this time for most people. I didn't do anything different yesterday except skip the spinach and artichoke because I packed my eggs for dinner but not the veggies and I had to go somewhere right after work. But I am extremely thirsty right now, so it could just be water retention.
Today is another workout day. I'm still sore from Tuesday. I don't know if the amount
