So I've been interested in Bb/fitness for about 5 years now, and although I started off keen & motivated I simply dwindled in that time to the point where I let my studying/career/emotions become the most important part of my life & basically ignored everything else.
Now, when I look at myself I can't help but feel ashamed that I look this way when I am only 27!
Now that I've changed jobs recently, am happier with the work and finally earning a comfortable wage, I wanted to start improving other areas of my life - my figure being the first focus!
Anyway(!) getting to the point - I've just purchased The New Rules Of Lifting For Women in hope that it will give me a solid foundation to begin working out again.
I feel excited about it, and plan to work out at around 5am 3x pw fasted - leangains.com/PBateman/Brad Pilon are all prime examples of IF success.
With the calorie counting aspect, I'm not liking the idea of having to tally up numbers but seems like it's the only way to ensure results??
The NROLFW apparently insists that you eat at maintenance to begin with. That for me may perhaps be around 2000cals (guesstimation as don't have book yet). Wouldn't it be sensible to just eat at a deficit to get things going straight away as fat loss is the number one priority for me at this early stage??
I'm 5'5, approx 143lbs, maybe 25-30% BF (maybe over exaggerated but feel like a blimp at moment!)
