I am new to this forum but thought I may get some input here... I have been working out for over 12 years... However this last year I have really stepped it up in a dire attempt to get ripped and lean... I have attached my workout spreadsheet that shows Calories burned, time of workouts heart rates ect... I am currently burning between 8000-12,000 calories a week and my workouts consist of the following on a normal week.
2 Spinning classes a week
5 cross fit classes per week
2 20 minute rowing session per week
6 25-30 minute runs averaging 5.8 to 6.1 mph
Weight training 2-3 times per week doing circuit training guidelines with 4 sets of 8-15 reps increasing weight as I go..
Now here ins the problem... I have been keeping a spreadsheet which i attached... but I have yet to lose any significant weight and or even change my measurements significantly... in fact a couple of years ago I was at 24% body fat and according to a recent test that is up to 27% body fat...
Now your probably saying diet..... Wrong ... I eat a half a wine glass of 1 teaspoon of Yogurt, two teaspoons of Chia seeds, and a raisin Granola...
mid morning snack - Fruit/ banana
Lunch - salad to include some sort of protein
Dinner - Meat and vegetable...
all moderately portioned..
I am 48 years old and frankly tired... I am not giving up but I am extremely frustrated... am even exploring surgery to lose the mid section... but I really want to do it naturally..
if there are any doctors or specialist that would like to use me as a case study I am game... this is crazy... I work out more than some professional athletes.. and i am definitely not seeing the results I should be..
