Day 5 of Operation Shape Up
8 am: Daily dose of capsules ( BCAA's, Omega 3's and Premium Plus). No breakfast
Sundays are normally a day that I lie in and take a rest day, but as I only played 30 minutes the day before in the football match I decided to go in and train with Terry (Personal Training client). I thought I would weigh and test my body fat to see how the first 4 days of the plan have gone.
It was only day 5 and so far my body fat % was down 2.5% and my weight was already down 2.7 kg. I had already lost almost 6 lbs in just 4 full days. So the plan was working, which was great, but the fast results were a huge surprise. In all honesty if you asked me how much I expected to lose over the 14 day period I would have estimated around 2.5 kg. To have lost 2.7 kg in just 4 days was a shock.
9.30 am: Training session

Day Summary: Over the past 4 days I have been training really hard and making sure if possible to train first thing in the mornong on a empty stomach. I have then been having a post workout shake followed by a meal 60 - 90 minutes later. I have then been doing my best to go 4 - 6 hours between meals. This has worked as the weigh in this morning proved. With na double training session planned tomorrow and myself being already on track I consumed a few extra meals today. I still kep them incredibly clean, fibrous and ensured I consumed protein with every meal. I will follow this similar structure for the next 2 - 3 days. I will hopefully maintain where I currently am with my weight, but continue to drop body fat. The battle of looking lean and staying above 80 kg is on.
