12 weeks out of my bikini prep!

Hey guys!

I’m already 12 weeks out! time seriously flies!Screen Shot 2015-08-23 at 19.44.31

So the weight has been constantly dropping, which is great! Had my 2 week weigh in today which was 113.8IBS one pound off from last week. I actually feel leaner than I was when I was 110 IBS last month! I guess I made some good muscle gains throughout my maintenance calories.

Hoping I bring a good package with this prep! Still staying strong with the carbs, which are at 155 carbs. They haven’t been lowered yet, So I’m enjoying the amount whilst its still there, but with wise decisions.

If your interested with a typical day of food for me check this video out!

Hope you like it

Journey to the stage : 14 weeks out!

Hey guys,  I feel so guilty for leaving this spot for so long! Sorry I’ve been MIA. simply just thought that I didn’t have anything to report on!

Although FINALLY ! HERE I AM! I’ve finally started my 14 week competition prep for November 15th. I’m extremely excited to start this and see what my results are by the end of it !

MACROS: ( I have Lainey Bopster as my coach this prep round)

At the moment, I’m on 155 Carbs, 130 Protein and 35 Fats.

Which isn’t overly too bad to handle with. The only thing is the low Fats.

Although, you should know I take prepping to a next level. I could sit on my phone sorting out the next days meal for hours and hours. Deciding, then redeciding and recalculating. Yes, I’m an overthinker. I like to organise myself well in advance. There is no ‘go with the flow’ with me. Which annoys the hell out of my boyfriend.

With this in mind. I have decided to perfectly design my meal plan for one day and simple have the same thing for the rest of the week! Making my life much more simpler, and stress free!  Trust me, my head would explode if I had to calculate everyday and so would my boyfriends. I’m just simply helping us both!

MEALS:

Although,  if you really want to see what I had. Check the video out below!!

DAY OF BODY POWER!!!!

SO Finally, the day of body power arrived. I was feeling crazily bloated. It wasn’t a good start to the day. Especially when your about to meet your FItness Idol!

Going to Bodypower was the best experience for my motivation! Seeing everyone shredded, on good form, just made me that much more determined to reach my goals! It was definitely a kick in the butt to work harder, and make some gains. Instead of forever cutting and gaining no success over it.

I GOT TO MEET THE VERY lady that kick started it all for me! A truly inspirational fitness idol! She’s lovely! I felt so big beside her, just made me that much more determined to make more gains.

Check out the footage of Bodypower here!

Day 26 : Body Power shred!

ONLY a FEW more days left!

I”m feeling good about my body! I haven’t weighed myself this past week because I really wanted to get the ‘ Weighing myself everyday’ mindset out of my head. So my final weigh in for the month will be on Thursday!

So monday i went to the Tynemouth Food Festival and it was really good! I thoroughly enjoyed the food, maybe a little too much, then hit the gym with an hours cardio session. Body still felt good the day after! Body is feeling better than ever these days!

Normally, i would over eat and feel grim the next day, but seems to be different this time round. Maybe I’m gaining more muscle mass to burn the calories ?

But don’t worry I won’t misuse this factor, and still keep clean!

Here’s a video for the food festival is you feel like taking a look ! Plus a little motivation speech at the end!

Hope you like it !

Day 22: Bodypower shred!

Yesterday was refeed!  i’ve a whole days of food that I recorded!

Think I’ve decided that I’m not going to weigh myself every single day now but weigh my self before every refeed! … I’ll be curious to know each day what my weight it, since the scales are so convenient to use, but it’ll be good mentally!

SO i pieced together my refeed on youtube!

Take a look! hope you like it!

Day 9: Bodypower shred

Weight 112.6.
I feel like my weight isn’t dropping like it should. Have a funny feeling that I should up my macros, could be the fact my body is shutting down and not burning anymore calories because its low on food supply.  So we’ll try some new macros for this week!  Plus more cardio. The jist is to burn the fat with quality exercise rather than having low calories.

I started bikini posing! Well by myself that is. I need to start something to motivate and see what parts of my body I need to work further.
Excuse the nakedness but it had to be done. I haven’t completely gotten the hang of it, but we will get there!

Day 6&7 : bodypower shred

Day 6 weight: 114Ibs

Day 7 weight: 112Ibs

Day 6&7 :

Hello World!

So I decided that I would combine day 6& 7 together because I was literally too busy to even be on my Phone.

Seems like refeed on Monday wasn’t too much of a failure as I had expected. Weight still went down which is always good!  so lets hope it keeps going that way!

Instead of those stupid Gifs that I made, which was actually a very lazy way of it for me to do it, I’ve put both days workouts on a youtube video. Check it out, I hope I don’t disappoint!

Its back and shoulder days. I just had to do back day again. The previous days’ back workout was a shamble. no harm in another right!?

(Also video says 5& 6 … I made an error.. oops)

Food:

I’m sorry but I’m really lacking in the food Photos.

But basically had to keep my fats, and protein extremely low as weather was amazing, IT’s BBQ WEATHER! Left nearly all my macros for Dinner.

Hopefullly I’ll get more footage of foods tomorrow!

Day 5: bodypower shred

Weight : 112.2

Day 5:
Noticed more changes today! Biceps are starting to pop out! And it feels good!

image

Looked into a new gym too. The owner talked about putting me into competition prep. Could do it in 9 weeks. So this could be a possibility.
Decisions decisions. 

Back day! 

It was horrible.  The gym was just packed with people who where hogging the machines or dumbbells whilst texting from time to time.  Totally downed my game.

Food!
Today was refeed.. although i feel like it was a cheat day. Yes, I did a cheeky day. It wasn’t intended but i did try to control it.

image

Cinnamon French toast : post workout meal. Haven’t had this in a while, it reminded me of my childhood. It was nice.

Perfect refeeed snack!
Decided to make banana oat muffins. With chocolate chips and cinnamon
It taste good! 

Dinner:
Went to an Italian restaurant. 
the food portions were massive!  I tried to leave myself a good amount of macros for dinner. But I’m pretty sure I’ve overdone it, hence today wasn’t refeeed, it was a cheat day ..  let’s hope it doesn’t affect me too much tomorrow! 

Fingerscrossed!

Day 4: bodypower shred

Weight 112.4 Ibs

Day 4:  Woke up today feeling really good with my body! Felt I’d lost a few ibs even though the scale didn’t say so. But it’s okay, my body felt good for me.
I’m starting to feel comfortable in my own skin now. Even though i’m not at my best! I feel better than ever!

Myprotein protein shakes

image

Realised today that I can’t live without my protein powder.  It’s the best protein powder I’ve tried so far.
The flavours are on point and they make you feel full but light.  Most protein shakes I’ve had where filling but felt really heavy, which I don’t fancy. No matter how tasty it was, the heavy feeling was too much. This made me hate drinking them, I avoided them as much as possible. But now my problems are solved ! I use my protein in everything! Pancakes,  muffins, oatmeal… just anything sweet! Adds a little bit of protein to my cheeky meals.

I definately recommend myprotein! The price is affordable, unlike some very expensive brands!

Worked chest and triceps today.
My least favourite muscle group to work is chest.
Hence only did 2 exercises for it.

Dumbbell flyes 4×7 (6kg)
Dumbell Chest press 4×10 (6kg)

Triceps, like any other day.. all exercises possible on this muscle group.

Food:

image

Meal 1: oatmeal with coconut milk, protein powder and cinnamon.
3eggwhites, smoked bacon medallions, sausages and beans.
Think this type of meal could be my staple of meals now.  Usually I despise oatmeal. I find it tasteless!  Although I’ve recently discovered to add coconut milk and cinnamon, which makes it tasty!  Its great.

Meal 2 : steak pork lions with sweet potato fries and a veggie stirfry
Tasted amazing and filling.  imageGot all my food groups in one go!

That’s all for today!
Refeeed tomorrow! And I’m excited for it!
