So im really unmotivated to exercise atm due to the snow and general coldness of outside. Work hasnt got back into a routine either which doesnt help. but i still have a goal to achieve….
So im keeping the diet going and due to the lack of activity i have dropped the calories down even lower. I usually aim for between 1900-2100 Kcal per day when working out 6 times a week. One day a week i will eat whatever i want, usually adding up to 3000-4000 Kcal. I tend to go a bit overboard so im trying to control that this year.
The last 2 weeks i have been keeping the calories at between 1500-1900 Kcal and one free meal with beer so around 3500 Kcal one day. This is still giving me a slight drop in weight which is good. So when i add the activity back in its not starting from stratch. So atm Im generally eating:
2 protein shakes a day @ 383Kcal per shake, one bit of meat (Chicken breast or pork chop) around 300-350Kcal and as much veg as i can fit on my plate, about 300Kcal, gravy 100Kcal. As always i am trying to drink 2L of water a day and that is just water. Tea and coffee make up around 100Kcal per day if im at home or in the office.
The bad thing is i am getting weaker and more unfit by the day. It is a downward spiral as the more unfit i get the more unmotivated i become.
I am hoping once the temperatures increase so will my motivation. Now i have the cross trainer in the house i will use that for 10-15 mins at the time to slowly get myself back in the game. Gona get a weights session in at the gym before my membership runs out this weekend.
So my goal was to hit 75kg i weight while maintaining muscle as best i could. I started January 2013 after a fat christmas at around 85kgs. I get the usual big drop in the first few week so that has got me down to 82.5kg now near the end of Jan 2013. But i will plateau unless i kick myself into gear and exercise 6 times a week; 3 x 30 min cardio and 3 x 1 hour weights sessions.
I will go into more examples of what im eating in another post. I go through phases of eating the same thing over and over untill i get bored.
