11 weeks out

with weight hovering around the 173lb (78.5kg) mark, I feel upper body is within striking distance, likely ready in 5-6 weeks, with lower body 2-3 weeks behind. PERFECT. I have no intentions on staying truly stage ready longer than I have to.

As food focus is creeping up a little, I have included a little more variety into my diet this week (same macronutrients however) and enjoy my meals much more.

breakfast - eggs-oats-berries-creatine-fish oil-multi-vit D3-joint support

snack- protein flapjack-apple

lunch- turkey-sweet potato-salad-multi-fish oil

dinner- chicken-rice-vegetables-multi-fish oil

pre bed- protein blend-wholemeal bread-nut butter

if training day - pre - banana & strong coffee. pwo - whey-dextrose

Its crazy how less food focus can lead to less fatigue, hunger, cravings.

When the time comes (weight loss slows) I will drop the pre bed bread to keep things moving along.

Training this week has been fantastic after an extra days recovery (holiday last week)

my current split suits me very well & can put my focus and energy where I need it when I need it.
