Draglist's Journal, 15 Jul 16

Woke at 210.6, down 1.4 from yesterday. Fasted until 3 pm and ate a small lunch. At 5:30 pm, did four one-minute sets of weighted squats. For the remainder of the month, I’m not going to do any extra walking on the treadmill or outside. Going to do the HIIT with weights three days a week as an experiment. Legs were pretty wobbly! Got a 206.0 weigh in after the workout. Lost much of the extra water weight from last weekend. Ate 652 calories on a 5:2 IF day. Will do further minor calorie adjustments over the weekend as necessary to get back to a 1671 per day average.

Excellent work! I have come down with a terrible cold/ cough...so much air conditioning needed these days...so until I'm over it, I'm not counting calories, but making sure nourishing things are entering...and copious amounts of water...Interesting switch to weights...

That will be a nice change of pace for you.

Thanks, Nicole! I hope you feel better soon. Lots of good low carb comfort food out there! Thanks, Skwhite! I'm trying the weights because I think I have stalled on the cardio. CICO worked for me for quite a while, but now that I have my last 10-20 to go, I've stalled and I need a new plan of attack!

I've been doing HIIT sessions since Jan and it has made a huge difference to the shape of my body. I hope it is as successful for you too. I see you have previously been prepared to lose some muscle as part of your journey. It might be time to rethink that and look at changing your macros so that it is only fat that you are losing. You will need to make sure you are eating enough of the right things if you are going to keep those muscles in tip top condition. Good luck.

Thanks, Mama. I have my macros in order. But probably not my workout.

In that case I'll pass on a something that I found held very true when I started HIIT. It takes four weeks for you to notice, 8 weeks for your friends and 12 weeks for the rest of the world. Be warned it becomes a bit addictive (in a good way). Enjoy!

Thanks! I was actually doing it for a year or so (but along with the steady state to excess). What I was not doing was allowing my muscles to rest. I'll actually be doing much less work and spending much less time, which is scary but I already know I'm plateaued with what I am doing. Thanks for the great tips!
