My graduation date is July 30th which is exactly 51 days away (not counting today) so........... that's about seven and a half weeks. Then I'm going to be in the "real world." I'm super excited but nervous too. My parents are throwing me a BIG graduation party at my grandma's which means all my friends are going to be there AND there's a bathing suit involved. NOW, I'm not expecting miracles or anything, but I'd like to loose 7-14 lbs. of fat by this time and for my boobs to grow two cup sizes- LOL!!! I'm serious about the weight loss though- my goal is 7-10 lbs.
I'll post pictures by the first of next week, although I'm about the same as in my last ones, and I'll take measurements and weigh myself sometime this week.
Now, my diet is going to change a little. I'm going to try to do low carb for 3-4 days and then have a refeed day. On my refeed day I'm only raising my calories to around 2200, protein will stay high, and carbs will be raised to about 300. If anyone is familar with this, feel free to chime in!! Fat will be kept to a minimal on refeeds, but will be higher on low carb days (by low carb I mean no more that 60 grams). I generally don't count the carbs from veggies but I may start.
I'll start posting my meals tomorrow.
As far as workouts go, I'd really like to trim up my legs some more and get the muscles showing more. They're hard, but their just not like how I want them. My hamstrings are the hardest for me to hit and I want that quad sweep. Abs- I'm not really aiming for a six pack, I'd be happy with a four!! My stomach has always been flat and if I gain it goes to my ass but I would like to gain some muscle there so my abs will show. What I'm planning on doing is a 4 day split. Something like this:
Day One: back/biceps
Day Two: Legs
Day Three: Shoulder/chest/tricep
Day Four: Legs
It might not always be right in a row though. I'll also work my abs about twice a week. As far as cardio is concerned I'm aiming for 225 minutes a week total. It'll usually be something like 20 at lunch on the eliptical or bike and then 30 on the treadmill (20 hitt and 10 moderate). I HATE cardio though . I may throw in some tapes too or swim some laps for variation.
Calories, well I really don't plan on counting them except for on my high carb day. I'm going to watch my carbs and listen to my body. If I'm hungrier on some days then on others I'll eat more that day. Just going to try to work WITH my body instead of against it. I'll generally have 4-6 meals a day though.
Okay- Phew........ that was long. Any or suggestions is welcome!! Oh, and feel free to Whore, I love to gossip!!
That is awesome, everyone is graduating and I am so jealous. I have 3 terms to go, so March I am done, things are taking longer do to a dual major. Well I bet you are going ot look hot and I love your AVI
forgive my ng ... but where exactly do you plan to lose 7 pounds? Looking at your pics (if they are current) I don't know you have 7lbs to lose. I'd like to call the bathing suit photo in as evidence (nt hands the judge the photo) ...
Thanks NT- Your a sweet heart!! My legs are definatly my problem area so once I loose all the fat from there I'll be happy. Overall, I'd like to loose around 15 pounds. I know that it will be a slow process because the last little bit of weight is the hardest to loose, but I think I will be happy with the results once I get them.
My meals ended up changing yesterday, I ate a little more than I anticipated but I was hungry!! May tweak meals a little today and eat a little less due to yesterday, just depends. I'm not really that hungry right now but we'll see
