This Week’s Macros (Staying the same):
I am keeping them the same macros as last week.
I am still doing Ashley Kaltwasser’s (aka AshleyKfit) Glute & Ab Program. Each week I work on either upping the sets, reps, or weights. I make it a point to always challenge myself…I try to never have an easy workout.
I also stepped out of my comfort zone (yes, I get shy) and went to a local gym for a hiit type class called Conditioning with Kandace, who is the VP of Marketing for Bodybuilding.com. She was out of town for her boyfriend’s power-lifting meet (he won!), so I will get to meet her and take the class from her next week. In Kandace’s absence the class was run by three Bodybuilding.com ladies who did a great job.
I had a lot of fun meeting other fit-minded people and it made me push myself to the point where my calves are still on FIRE ( the class was on Saturday morning). I love working out at home, but also plan on incorporating some more group classes into my routine for a nice change of pace and added challenge.
Overall it was a good week. I felt pretty “skinny” a lot of the week (I actually got down to 134 on Wednesday) and considered ending my cut early. I ultimately decided to give it at least one more week and re-evaluate where I stand next weekend. There is a chance my 8 Weeks to 40 cut becomes a 7 week cut. If I decide I am happy with where I am at the end of this week then I will head straight into my Reverse Diet (which I will also document).
Below is an ab progress pic from this morning upon waking. I don’t know that I expect a lot of weight loss this week, but I do expect that my body will become a lot more lean.
Feel free to contact me with any questions about the cutting/leaning-out/dieting process or nutrition in general.
Happy Monday everyone!
