    Girly’s Journal from Fat to Fit

    Journey should be fun yet challenging and I am determined to see results!

    Current stats: 64 inches, 22% bf (unscientific), between 142 and 145 pounds (up 4% in bf and 10 lbs from my lowest low which I was not able to maintain). At 145, I am 100% natty, have vascularity in lower part of arms/legs and comfortably wearing size small top/size 4 slack/skirt with some definition in my upr abs/sides...minimal.

    Long term goal is to maintain 15 – 16% BF which should put be around 125 lb. I am less concerned about the scale and more on a look and being able to comfortably maintain.

    Short term goal is to drop BF, especially in belly/abdomen/upper inner thighs. I had dropped 40 lbs after joining this site; however, I over trained and recovery took the better part of a year. My new plan is to build lean muscle all over, focusing on booty, arms and abs. I incorporate weights and cardio, seeking a more balanced approach. I have been recording a starting point for lower and upper body on different equipment and leaning on other member’s logs to gain lifting knowledge. I am self-proclaimed cardio bunny but MUST weight train to achieve goals.

    My immediate focus is consistency in diet, H20 and training.

    I will post weekly progress / stat updates as well as major mods to diet, training, supplements. My starting point is 1400 cal; 158 g p/105 g c/ 39 g f. Cardio 4x per week. Weight Training 3x weekly. Let's do this!

    hope your body allows you to work hard! I am focused on form and rebuilding. I have lost a lot of strength and have to avoid certain lifts initially, but there are plenty of options to hit same muscle.

    Giggle reports it's working for her and my amazon care package is on its way! I have high expectations for Austinite's Fat Loss stack, although, I would like to increase my overall calories and carbs, just not the chocolate carbs

    Thank you fellas for the support bc the mental part is sometimes harder then the physical aspect.

    I hit my macros, exceeded my fiber grams; and drank 112 ounces of water! Trained bi/tri/abs and 1 hour of HIIT cardio. Off to a grand start!

    Hi there GGR - I'm glad to find your log. We are similar in a lot of ways. Let's do this! I need to get this cut done, and move on to a more fun phase.
    Good luck, and follow your heart!

    Prolly closer to 45 of HIIT, 10 min warmup 5 min cool down. 45 min of tabata in a cycle class. Instructor is a typical. Amazing.

    cycle class incorporates tabata This instructor is intense /her recovery between tabata intervals is a flat road sprint. Not all instructors are good. This one is fabulous!

    I think important to start strong to see results as quickly as possible. It's a huge motivator to feel results.

    Hit macros and increased water yesterday. Weight is down. And then life bites gonna have to take it easy for a week. I figure a week off of lifting, have to modify cardio so don't open some unplanned sutures. Diet has to be tight.

    Ah so sorry GGR. I know you're too tough to let this slow you down!
    Hang in there, and make the tweaks that will allow you to make progress in a different area. If I can't do one thing, I'll change and focus on something else, like flexibility or leanness. Then get back to strength or size when I can.
    I sure like Cape's idea of "stepping stones". Nice!

    appreciate all your comments and support. I went outside and screamed at the sky for 2 minutes - made me feel better. I have been considering NOT following doc orders. I wonder if DRs would recommend otherwise if THEY WORKED OUT. :/

    Weight is down, but in the attempt of full disclosure, I DID eat a Girly's version of the "AL" cheat meal night b4 I started... it seemed like the right thing to do at the time and I do not have any regrets. I know I have a tempting weekend coming up, so am considering pulling back on carbs throughout the week and trying to minimize the impact!
