Came back from Skegness and weighed myself a few days later- back up to 153.2lbs. Re-weighed just 3 days later, down to 151.0lbs and now, just a week later and im down to 147.9lbs! Thats a loss of 5.3lbs since returning home- in just one week! Just so its clear- its not all water weight that has dropped off me! I have lost 4.4lbs of fat since last week out of the total 5.3 I have lost – 19.6kg down to 17.6kg (2 x 2.2lbs = 4.4lbs) 28.3% down to 26.3%
I am introducing some training into weight-loss progress to burn more fat and define muscle a touch. The first time I tried this I did the first ten for 60secs each set- as many reps as I could.
The second part I did for 5mins- 30secs for each bit, but repeated them over for five minutes
Chest press- with dumbells
½ Squatted rows- with dumbells
Russian twists- with dumbells
Standing shoulder press-with dumbells
Full squatted rows-with dumbells
Dumbell Strikes (boxing)- with dumbells
Full / ½ plank
Dumbell swings with press
Crunches with hip lifts
Side to side shuffles
Squats- with dumbells
Would you suggest anything else? What else could I do to help myself? I live at home and am currently skint- no money at all… So I will have to make-do with my set of 1.5kg Dumbells – a good weight considering I have never used weights really in my life! My diary is a bad example because like I said, I came back from holiday and not been logging whilst away.
Examples of my food when I do this right (most of the time):
Peanut butter, oatcakes, eggs, salads, chicken, cashews, fish, jacket potatoes, etc- not a bad mx of food at all. I usually eat 1300kcal around about- with no exercise except walking.
I am 5’6”, 21 years old, currently weigh at the high end of 10.7 stones (147.9lbs) and that’s is!
