I’ve been happily working on my muscles for 5 weeks. I’m still pretty pudgy.
I try really hard not to be mean to myself. I do. But this body fat is getting me down. I decided to do lean and strong (the body-shaping aspect of 12wbt) this round because I was quite close to my goal. Not there but close.
Then I realised I wasn’t being ambitious enough with my goal weight and dropped it by another 5kg. The goal. Not the actual weight. Still working on dropping the damn weight.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I do LOVE the weights and toning I’m doing. But I have to acknowledge I’m too far from goal with a body fat percentage that is too high to be able to see the results of my work. I know that I would get there as the weight is still coming off, just not anywhere near as fast as I want it to.
A friend said to me that she views Lean and Strong as purely decorative, for when you’ve got the body to the weight you want it, but still want to fine tune it’s shape. I tend to agree.
So today I’m hitting the gym with a Lean and FIT workout to try. Essentially I’m just going to smash myself with cardio for a change.
I’ll let you know how I go 🙂 Vomit stories are a high possibility. Sorry.
