Upon my return from holiday, I decided that I needed to consume more fruits,vegetables and water and cut out the excess emply calories. I still have fat to lose (30%) at present and I really need to get back on track. I have started IF on Sunday and all is going well...apart from the ice-cream at the beach after an afternoon stroll. All in all I feel fine and have continued to increase my weight training and minimise the amount of Cardio, which wasnt much anyway (2 sessions per week). I will include a swimming session to my workout regime.
I wasnt to sure about IF, everytime I plan to do it, I read conflicting messages about eating breakfast first thing in the morning. I have read great posts from people that have found IF really successful. Maybe I should just do it for a month and not be swayed.
Anyway, I have gone back to Compound Lifting and have been lifting 25kg which has been quite intense. I intend to up the weight each week and still throw in the odd HIIT on the bike occasionally.
I took some pictures this morning after my lifting session..I jumped on the scale first: 11.11st - 30%bf - 32.6% mm

|11.11 - 30.7bf & 32.7% mm JULY13|
Need to work on thighs, hips, waistline and abs. My upper body has always looked well toned and
This picture doesnt look too bad. I have the shape but needs more dedicated and consistent work! Not bad for a 40year old :)
The picture below was taken early last year 2012...my waist and lovehandles have reduced down nicely...It is so important to take pictures to encourage you to stay on track and stay as healthy as possible.
