It's me again, back with another log. My previous logs were very short, this one will be much longer and a lot better. I will keep everything short with no frills, no point in boring people with drivel and results are what matters, not how nice this log looks.
After much thought about whether to bulk or cut I have finally decided to cut. I have never been sub 13%bf so I have never seen my abs. I have some muscle mass, albeit not a large amount, so once I'm done there should be something to show. Here are my current stats...
And here are the stats I want to reach...
15lbs to lose. Will be aiming to lose 1lb per week, maybe slightly more. I should reach my goal by the beginning of December at the latest. After that I will bulk whilst avoiding excessive fat gains. Then it may be time to cut again. Like I said, I was considering bulking however I'll end up real fat and I feel that will demotivate me greatly. I get motivated when I see results in the mirror (getting leaner).
Here's a pic from a week or two ago. Not the best lighting and I was messing about with mates (probably drunk too).
As you can see there's a bit of mass there but there's also a fair amount of fat. Diet was crap that week... biscuits, cider and chips (fries). Hahahahaha. Ha. Haha.
I plan to eat at a 500 - 800 calorie deficit whilst keeping my protein high. I'll be eating around 3,000 calories per day. This should put me in a 500 deficit. I bike to the gym and back each day which is around 12 miles, I do some cardio in the gym and at least 1hr intense weight training as well as little things like walking the dog, walking shops, etc.
Macros are as follows....
200g protein (minimum)
80g fats (minimum)
Carbs will make up the rest. Some days I'll hit higher protein and fats, other days it'll be lower. I will make sure I reach the bare minimums of what I posted though.
That's pretty much it. I find these logs kick me up the arse when I'm lagging behind 'cos people are watching. Thanks and stay tuned!
