Finally took the plunge and order the supps i’ll need for a month of V-Diet. Rugby season is finished, my body fat % isn’t where it needs to be and my body hasn’t reacted well to attempting to cut fat AND add LBM at the same time. I feel as if it has inhibited both by trying to do them at the same time.
So the next month is going to be focused on losing fat. My overall plan is to drop as much weight as possible and starting to cleanly add weight again. Haven’t crunched the numbers yet (i’m a finance guy, its what I do). But here’s what i’m weighing as of right now and goals. I’ll update the night before I start as well.
Weight: 220.6 (seriously? I’ve gone from 207 to 221 in less than two weeks!!!)
Diet Goal: sub 200 lbs
BF%: sub 10%
After the diet, i’m planning on taking the next months to reload and want to add clean weight, keeping the BF around 10% and getting back up to 220ish. Not sure how thats gonna happen yet, trying to go one thing at a time.
I realize these SOUND a little ridiculous, but here’s my POV. Not even two weeks ago I was 207, it’s just been a rough last two weeks (I dont want to get into it, but suffice it to say it has been a bit of a life altering shock and I’ve been a bit numb since it happened. Discipline had gone out the window.) I have no doubts that this garbage weight will FALL OFF pretty quick.
I’m pegging May 10 as my start date. The date is significant because June 10 marks my graduation from business school and I think it would be a good graduation gift to myself. Another motivator is the fact that I really can’t afford food outside of the supps I ordered, so I have no choice but to succeed!
The next few days will be spent eating everything that is left over in my apartment so I have nothing lying around that I might crack and snack on. I’ll post workouts and everything so everyone gets all the gory details.
Lifting will be three full body’s a week, want to include some Cosgrove complexes but I think Tabata might be too DOMS inducing for the low cals.
Other than that,some swimming, dog walks and the fact that I walk and take the train EVERYWHERE in Denver, should handle the bulk of my other cardio needs. NO rugby training of any type (touch, 7’s, etc).
Here’s what i’m taking:
Grow! Whey (already have it, putting it to use adding to the 1st shake of the day to help with ending catabolism)
BCAAs leftover, between shakes
Flaxseeds; will toss them in the blender and add to some shakes to avoid shitting my brains out.
Power Drive; already have it, gonna use it during my ALL IMPORTANT last month of biz school in case I get cloudy, as I am ridiculously swamped the next month.
I think thats it (ISNT THAT ENOUGH?!). I’ll share some more good stuff as I get closer to start date. Feel free to hit me with suggestions, craving warnings and everything else. Thanks y’all…to paraphrase Captain Tenneal from MXC…GET IT ON!
