OK, so I'm still 81kg and probably in the 20% bodyfat range and shredding is something bodybuilders will do before a big event to get down to 2% but I'm calling it shredding :-)
No more refined sugar products or 'treats' till I start La Marmotte. Ideally I'd like to be at 75kg for the event but lets face it anywhere around 77kg would be fantastic.
If only I didn't like biscuits and chocolate quite so much ....................... its just for 6 weeks.... its just for 6 weeks .... its just for 6 weeks ....... if I tell myself that enough maybe it'll help me get past those cravings.
Saturday 23rd May - 81.9 kg
Well during the week I watched 10 things you need to know about losing weight. And I put some of it into practice; I didn't have anything between meals (ok, I had a fruesli bar on Friday afternoon because I was really hungry), I had more protein than usual for breakfast (couple of poached eggs and toast), but having soup for lunch was the clincher. I ate a hearty bowl every day with plenty of buttered bread but had no cravings during the afternoon. none. no cravings. Oh, and we're going to buy some smaller plates today for the whole family.
So as a result, when I weighed myself this morning ....
Saturday 30th May - 81.0 kg
And after a relatively well behaved week, with a bit of a blow-out on Wednesday this weeks tally is .... (although I'm possibly a little glycogen depleted after hard riding yesterday)
Saturday 6th June - 79.9 kg
Couple of blow outs this week and back up, they say 3,500 cals to a pound - as "bad" as I have been I aint eaten 7,700 extra calories, BUT, I did have a real blow-out on Tuesday and felt quite ill from over-eating. Wonder if the results of that are more serious to weight gain than a steady flow of calories. hey ho. I'm not really that concerned about weight, otherwise I'd have skipped the M&S chocolate roll last night ;-)
