It's been one month, 9 fast days, 8 weight work outs, 2 HIIT sessions, several carb heavy post work out meals, 1 tea party, 1 pork themed pot luck, I girl's night in and lots of ups and downs. So how have I been doing on my new lifestyle/ diet regime?
Not too shabby. I've gone down in weight and fat percentage about 3%. My pot belly has also shrunk 1 inch!!!! YEAH! My pot belly has always been my biggest problem area, even when I was 115 pounds - skinny fat I tell ya.
The increases in my arms and hips don't bother me because I think that is actually muscle. I'm up to 20 pound dumb bells for my bicep curls and I'm hitting up 145 pounds on my stiff leg deadlifts.
As for my diet here's an overview of my calorie intake for the last month from my myfitnesspal app:
I set 1350 calories as by baseline due to my general activity level and my workouts. As you can see, I generally go over my calorie goals! I love food way too much. But on a weekly basis, I don't do too bad. As my fast diet wears on, it seems like my calories are normalizing to my goal level.
I'll take losing almost 4 pounds AND pigging out whenever I want any day!
