So I finally graduated college and I have decided to lose all the fat I gained there. I have worked out before, but lost interest because I had no goals. I decided to have my body fat tested in the “Bod Pod” that we have locally. I was 35.7% Fat! I generally consider myself to be “small boned”, so at 190lbs, I think I am really fat.
I have been on a diet / excercise plan for 2 weeks now and have had some decent results. I have went from 199lbs down to 189lbs in 2 weeks, but I doubt these results will continue without a religious-like devotion. I am willing to do it though.
Here has been my typical workout (brief overview):
Monday: Back and Tri’s + 30min. Cardio
Tuesday: Shoulders + Bi’s + 30min. Cardio
Thursday: Legs + 30min. Cardio
Friday: Random Upper Body + 30min. Cardio
7:30am - Slim Fast Shake (easy to drink on commute to work)
10:00 - Trail Mix or Yogurt
12:00 - Random Sandwich place like Subway, usually Turkey Sandwich
3:00 - Meal Bar (15-20g Protein Bar)
5:30 - Workout
6:45 - Dinner at Subway or somewhere similar
9:00 - Yogurt + some fruit
11:30pm - Multi-Vitamin + Sleepy Time
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Help me out. I know this workout / diet sucks, but it seems to be working… sort of.
I basically need to know what to do to lose the fat. I also need to know what a good goal set would be for body fat. When should I go have my body fat tested again?
Thanks so much for any help!
