    The long and winding road to 10%

    hey guys, i`ve finally decided to start a journal as i think it will be a good way of keeping me focused along my path to a leaner healthier me!!!
    some stats first off,

    STATS:
    Age: 23
    height: 5,11-6
    weight: 203
    bodyfat: around (but im only guessing) 25 - 30% but will update this with an accurate figure soon

    CALORIES
    im currently consuming around the 2500 calorie mark, and im going to keep this for around 2 weeks to see how i get on in terms of weight and fat loss, and then access myself from there in terms of dropping calories

    Exercise Routine

    Weight routine: Fullbody workout (mon-wed-fri) id still class myself as a beginner

    Cardio: i cycle into work monday to friday, 5km in and 5km back, gym is on the way so on work out day i cycle to the gym and then on home, with sat and sunday rest days.

    i didnt have time to list my meals and workouts for this week but have them written down so i`ll just hit you with my whole week so far!! Sorry!!

    Any help from you guys would be hugely appreciated!!!!!

    Thanks,
    Darren

    so i finally got it all down,
    i didnt realise i was only eating 2000-2200 calories, im going to try and incorporate another shake into my 10.00am meal and that should bring me closer to the 2500 mark, unless any on else has any suggestions??

    Feedback will be highly appreciated!!!
    i will condense my meals down for easier reading and only list changes each day and will lish my weights in lbs to save alot of converting!!
