so ive been eating badly (really badly) and not working out because of my back injury. BUT tomorrow is june 1st, this means new month, so its time. i know i cant really workout yet. ill try to daily go for 30 minute walks & do an small arm workout with my really light dumbbells at first. i have to start somewhere. i cant just sit around, its killing me.
this month will be (super) clean eating. as soon as i get well again i will hit the gym and get a proper workout plan together! so looking forward to that
btw its my birthday on sunday, gonna be 22 and next week ill be moving out for the first time! so excited yay
Since I want to gain muscle, I should up my protein intake, do more strength-training and NOT eat in a calorie deficit, right? Loads of healthy fats like nut butters etc can be used to help up my intake but I was wondering, even though I'm eating squeaky clean, won't I gain SOME fat eating in a surplus? :( I really wanna gain muscle because I'm skinny fat but skinny fat means having a belly pooch and eating in a surplus might add to that? What do you think?
i feel really bad, but i cant really give you advice in this matter because im just starting myself with all that muscle gaining and not fat. just research google and try to find anwers from bodybuilding.com forums. i have no experience with this yet and im still learning myself
what is the best time to get on the scale? you know the scale change every second! this morning I weighed my self, it was 56kg and then I got on it again after 5 seconds cause I was like shocked of happiness and it gave me 60kg :(
i weigh myself usually in the morning if i do, but i dont even do it everyday, just because i know its affected by so many things and no point getting upset over it. you shouldnt do <3 just stick to a certain time of the day and do it once not every 5 minutes, haha
I'm 5'5'' and I'm 160. I'm trying to lose 30 lbs so I can be around 130 at least. Is it possible to lose this in 2 months? I've been walking/jogging every morning for the past week or so (about 3.6 miles in an 50 minutes). I've also started pilates and I try to do about 30-40 minutes worth of that a day. Do I need to up my cardio?
workout plan seems really good! you should keep track of your intake and eat healthy and as clean as possible (no junk,candies for sure)
dont set a 2 month goal -if it happens it does, but if not then you are already doing something good for your body in a long run. i cant tell you if its possible or not, but i do believe if you really want something in life you can have it, you just have to REALLY want it.
I used to eat 500 to 900 calorie a day and I didn't lose weight. so they adviced me to up my calories, so now for the second day I eat about 1100 or 1200 per day and I do 30 days shred 6 times aweek, do u think I might start lose weight?
have you started eating whatever you want now? or still sticking to a strict diet?
well yes and no. i still eat the same things daily that i did then, but now that is summer i have an icecream somedays and you know, im not that strict right now. i can eat so much more now that im maintaing. ill be starting fresh when my back heals with my diet and excersise, i cant wait to be back on track with everything
i just want to know everything about what you did because your body is beyond amazing and i want something like that :O
everybodys body is different and what worked for me might not work for you, but what will definently work for everyone is not eating crap! i basicly did not eat any junkfood, candies, chocolate, cakes etc. for 4 months, not even a bite.
my menu was all about veggies, low at/fatfree dairy, fruits, healthy fats(oliveoil, nuts), lean protein (chicken breast, tuna, salmon), postworkout i had a proteinshake and i drank only water and green tea. i consumed about 1300 kcal a day.
i worked out 6 days out of 7 mostly. did bodypump, bodyattack and pilates. before every group workout i ran for 30 minutes on threadmill, somedays i also did HIIT on threadmill.
what were you doing for workouts either in the gym or outside x
well i had a gym membership were i attented groupworkouts like bodypump, bodyattack and pilates. i ran on a threadmill aswell for 30 minutes before every workout. that i did like till the end of march and then it got warmer and i started going running outdoors (7 km) and did some weights at home.
I love educating myself on health and fitness. It makes me feel great. I smile at the thought of where clean eating and regular exercise is taking me. I am constantly wanting to learn more. No matter how many negative comments I get, I won't quit. I will keep going. This is my choice. I am making this my lifestyle now. I will prove everyone who has ever told me I can't do it, wrong. Watch me.
what made you want to lose weight instead of just tone up? im just asking because when I dropped down to 115 I felt like I looked weird because my legs and lower stomach were still big and I lost weight in my butt so I wasnt proportional. Did that mean that I needed to keep losing to even out and thats why you lost more too?
yes, because my bodys fat storage is all in my lower body- thats the last place to go and the first to come back. ive always been small from my upperbody and now that i lost weight its skinnier, i never did any arms or anyother upperbody workout but i recommend doing some for you if you keep going with weightloss.
you dont need to lose anymore if you are happy, just add in arms , shoulders, back weight lifting workouts to get more your body more proportional. for legs/ass do lunges, squats, deadlifts (higher reps, lighter weights) to get them toned , but as cardio be sure to do 2-3 times a week HIIT to slim them down. running is also good. stretch ( legs especially) after workouts.
well atleast thats what i did, hope i helped, hehe
do you have a "myfitnesspal" account? if so, what is it? do you accept random friend requests?
no sorry! i tried it but i had to custom food everything except fruits and veggies and it took too much time :( i still track my calories, but with a site that has most of the foods that are available where i live
tell me about your usual training week. did you have cellulite before?
i havent really had a proper training week since.. end of april. i know bad. i’ll tell you all about my workout next week when im back training. ill have a fitness plan by then for sure. currently im being a couch potato and hoping my back will be all healed for next week
and yes, i think i still have cellulite, need to hit some heavy squat weight maybe it will reduce a bit, haha
