Today ended Week 2 with measurements and such. A little disappointed, but expecting the loss of inches in the shoulders and upper body but was also expecting a bit of a loss on the waist. Nope! Not this week! And after those Day 1 and 3 workouts, I thought for sure I’d be down 8 or 10 lbs – just from sweat loss! Alas, not to be.
As I said last week, my goal this week was to approach a 1300/day calorie intake average. My total for the week is 8,882 which is an average per day of 1,269! Achievement unlocked. My goal for this week upcoming will be 1100/day average. Even though the gains are not fast enough for me, I am making gains. Weight: –4 lbs, Waist: no change, shoulders: -0.75 inch and AI from 1.268 to 1.256.
As far as cutting back on calories, I believe the gradual cut back has helped a lot for my body to get used to it. Dropping from an average 2750/day straight to 1000/day is a big jump. And it’s only been the last 3 days that I got under 1000/day as I try the 16-20 hour fast cycle. And if all goes well, I’ll have 2 700 calorie days this coming week. Can you hear the fat sizzling?!
