7 weeks out
169.5lb this week and no surprise with the slightly bigger drop. Work has been very busy and productive, PTing more than ever & rarely see less than 18-20k steps each day. This has been a huge factor in me keeping food high throughout this prep. Things feel very similar to being on 2500kcals last time around, most days now are a challenge & things are getting closer each week.
Upper body is nearly ready, lower a good 4-5 weeks behind, so on schedule to bring me best in 7 weeks time.
Nutrition changes this week - when I can, I have an extra chicken-sweet potato-veg meal instead of shakes for that day, this helps digestion and satiety & feel much better doing this. If busy with back to back clients, a shake & fruit is quick and convenient.
Training this week has been fantastic & much better than at this weight last time around, some lifts 20kg+ stronger than 2018 prep when the goal was simply to get as diced as possible, keeping strength and fullness is helping training so much more.
4 sessions this week, as a big gap between Saturday morning clients, made sense to split my push workout up.
