So, I smashed the scale so I used a pink hammer don’t judge me! Lol
Seriously though, The scale was prefect for the first part of my weight loss journey and did what it was meant to keep me on track, but now my body is changing and reacting in such a different way that I have to change the way I track my progress.
I’ll still be using the bodyfat calculation, measurements and the last part is really being focused on what I look like in the mirror. It’s a good judge! I will still be keeping track of my foods via lose it as I have to take a look at my ratios yet again.
It’s only been about a month since I changed my protein intake and increased my calories. It’s worked that’s for sure but there was something missing and with the help on my training partner Kelly, I talked it out and she suggested a decrease in protein with an increase in carbs, since my workouts were suffering a bit due to a lack of energy. I just wasn’t getting enough fuel for my heavier workouts that have been taking a toll on my body, that is in a good way!
I am welcoming the increase in carbs as well I love them! That doesn’t mean I’ll be sucking back bowls of pasta and potatos, no I’ll be taking in a split of veggies and whole grains, the great thing is that I’ll feel fuller and my protein intake will still be about 1.5 grams per pound of lean body mass based on my bodyfat calculation.
Plenty of protein for muscle gains and plenty of carbs for fuel! Initially I was a bit hesitant of decreases my protein but the increase in carbs is going to be nice for a change.
So there, in this past month, I have had to stay really in tune with my body and how I am feeling and this what I and you need to do to get closer to the final goal.
I ask questions when I start feeling off:
Why, I am feeling like I have no energy?
What do I have to change, if anything? (My workouts or my Meal Plan)
Ask questions, get help (talk it out)!
Until Next Time
