    Smile gokix's summer kickoff!


    Hello ladies and gents! The purpose of this new thread is to log my weight loss journey for the summer. Anyone interested can read my previous log here: 15 lbs in 2 months!! Let's go!!. Basically my goal was to lose 15 lbs in 2 months and I ended up losing just a little more than 13 lbs! It was a lot harder to lose weight the last 2 weeks! It just wouldn't come off! I'm going to keep my routine (diet + exercise) more or less the same. I've been on somewhat of an extreme calorie deficit at 1300-1400 cals/daily with 1 cheat day added in. If I need to change my diet in order to avoid plateauing, please let me know! A lot of people seem to be getting results with IF so I might give that a whirl!

    3x week resistance training (Stronglifts - high reps/lower weight) and 3 days cardio (mix of LISS and HIIT) since I still have a long ways to go. In the end, I did not meet my goal, but knowing I am on my way to a newer, healthier me is very exciting! Hope you'll join me for the ride. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Stats: 26 y.o. / F / 5'6" / BF % = ?
    Goal 2: Lose 15-20 lbs by August (3 months total)
    CW: 168.8 lbs (as of this morning)

    The last few pounds are the hardest. I think you have a good plan. Consistency is the key though!

    Thanks sawa and lex! It's kind of been a struggle to get back into working out mode since my vacation. Pretty good first week though. Just like my last log, I will be posting pics monthly to track my progress.

    Not a good start to the week. Been struggling to get back into the swing of things since I've returned from vacay almost 2 weeks ago. A wave of depression struck me last week, and I don't know why. It's really starting to effect my workouts. I was doing so good prior to coming back too. Last week I only worked out twice. *slaps wrist* It didn't help that this past weekend was filled with delicious but unhealthy food! The reason? Summer BBQ's. And I was in the city last weekend, so why not eat real NYC pizza, and hot dogs, and bagels and dessert since I'm never in the city! I ended up walking for a few hours while eating inbetween but felt guilty as hell the next morning. Committed carbicide for 3 days! Ugh. If you've reached this far, thanks for reading. It feels a little better to write all of this down.

    30 min jog yesterday.

    I haven't jogged in 3 weeks, and was dreading it since it's been so long. I thought I'd end up passed out on the side of the road along the way! I'm happy to say I ran my personal best that day!

    Hang in there.. it takes time to get into a groove.. If you can't enjoy life here and there, what fun would it be? It looks like your work outs are at least back on track? How are your eating goals going now?
    Did your wave of depression go away?

    Thanks for the words of encouragement, sawa I guess it rears it's ugly head when things don't seem to be going as well as I want it to. We can be our own worst enemy sometimes. My maintenance cals were set at 1300-1400 cals. For the past 2 months I've been eating very low cal (1300-1400 on workout days). So last week I added ~100 cals while still working out but to be honest it didn't do much for my weight loss. If anything I've maintained my weight for the past 2 weeks, so it's back to a low cal/carb cycling diet. Thinking about experimenting with IF, that is, if I can figure out how it works.

    Keep up the great work. Looks like you are doing well!

    Sorry to hear about the wave of depression. I know exactly how that feel and went through something similar around the same time actually. Finally kicked it and got back out myself and feel much better. Hope you are pulling through ok. Don't hesitate to ask if you need anything!

    Those calories seem a tad on the low side to me. Also I've come to realize carbs aren't the devil like alot of people make them out to be.

    Hey rsnake! Where have ya been hiding?!

    I love carbs. A bit too much perhaps. I'm trying to stick with fruits, sweet potatoes, and low carb bread to keep me satiated. Those calories are low, but that along with exercise has helped me to continually lose weight. Last week I experimented by adding ~100-150 calories but that did nothing to shed any weight. Like I said, I just maintained it. Maybe I should have kept it up for a bit longer? I'm not so sure.

    Are you cutting or bulking? My last meal is most definitely my BIGGEST, most awesome meal of the day as well!
    I've tried fasted training vs. pre-wo snack and I feel like major poo when fasted. No energy to power through my workout at all. I'm looking into BCAA now because supposedly it helps!

    Felt soreness in the back of my heel and my side hip as I was jogging. Wanted to push faster but the more I pushed the more I could feel it, so I was a bit slow today. Been working on my form, so I think the shoes are the culprit!

    Hey lud! Welcome to AM and thanks for following
    PW: 166.5-167
    CW: 165.6


    Down ~1lb which isn't too bad considering I worked out during the week, but took the weekend off. Got around to buying yoga capri pants for jogging. Up until now I've worn either sweats or basketball shorts and the fabric gets bunched up at the crotch area so I'm always having to fix it as I jog! These new pants are very comfortable and slips on like a glove. Gonna try them out this week

    LOL Me too! I'm not one to splurge on clothes either. I'm gonna be smelly and sweaty in them anyway. I got these and a puma tee for a total of $24 at Marshalls. Woot! Haha

    I think I'm getting sick! *in tom haverford's voice* noooooooo.....Woke up with a sore/closed throat. Been munching on cough drops all day, and it looks like I'll be upping my vit c dosage. Running wasn't fun due to built up mucus ewwww. The new yoga pants were comfy, but kept slipping right to the a-crack and just settled there as I ran haha. That was the least of my concerns.. I was hauling ass to beat the rain, and I beat it! Feels good, man.

    30 min jog

    After battling a cold for the past week, I just felt drained. Haven't done much lifting or cardio for 3 or 4 days. But today is a new day. I deloaded again on some of my lifts today. Got in a decent workout too! Jogging was okay other than the fact that my left arm socket started to feel sore about 3/4 of the way in. Actually had to stop and stretch it as it was affecting my jog. But I finished it and I am totally wiped out now. lol

    Shoes can be your worst enemy. I get fitted at a running specialty store.. haven't had problems since...

    Keep on it.. things can get frustrating.. but you can do it..
    Remember to take time off here and there.. flucuate your calories.
    How are things looking with your diet? have you found a sweet spot yet for that?

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Got side stitches while jogging! It suuuucked! Didn't have any music to listen to either! It was quite warm out and I had more trouble breathing since I decided to go midday when it's warmest. Otherwise it was a good workout, and I'm starving now.
