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!

I’m extremely happy with how refeed went! It took me to anew level with my body! Just excites me even more, to whats to head my way for these 2 weeks! Is it weird that I get excited over progress?  

So I’ve decided I’ve got bad genetic with my bum area.

Gotta work my booty twice as hard because of my flat, long bum, just like my mothers… just whhhyyyy.

It means that I’ve to work more areas to the booty.  OH WELL, I’ll just have to deal with it.

JUST GOTTA WORK WITH WHAT YOU HAVe not with what you don’t have

So I’ve a video of my full day of refeed and squat day! check it out and let me know how you feel about it!

Why I ‘flexible diet’ – ‘Controlled but cheeky diet’

If it fits your macros Programme (flexible dieting)

What are Macros ?

Macronutrients (Macros) are what are found in a persons’ intake of food. You can find these by looking at the nutritional label on your food packets. the 3 key macros you look for in the nutrition is the Grams in CARBOHYDRATES (carbs), PROTEIN and FATS.

Within this diet, you are given a certain amount macros, depending on your body composition and what your aims are. For example, I am currently on 103 carbs, 42 Fats and 123 protein (1240 calories)

If you really need help on finding your macros, you can try apps like myfitnesspal, or the nutritionist. (what I am using now)

Why I Flexible diet?

If you have read before on my page ‘my life of crazy diets,’ I’ve tried Quite a few diets, and none of them worked for me, partially because I love my food. Flexible dieting basically gives you the means to eat anything as long as it ‘fits your macros.’ for example, 2 brownie bites from Sainsburys, is 20 carbs, 8 fat. At the end of the day I had macros left so I treated myself to brownies. it’s what I call a ‘controlled but cheeky diet’

Indeed I say it allows you to eat anything you wish, but it does make itself healthy too, as you are subjected to a certain amount of macros,  you want to find the healthier options of each different type foods, like instead of white bread, you go for brown bread, its less fat. you want to be resourceful and fill your macros with more filling foods.

Some examples of the meals I have.
