I'm a 17 year old female. My height's 5'1, weight's 110lb.
My waist is 25.5 and hips are 36.5
Upper thighs are 23, lower thighs are 16.
I have a horrible belly, especially when i'm sitting!
I want to get fitter, leaner legs, tighten up my sides and lose the belly.
So i've done my share of research but i'm still pretty clueless. I have 4-5 healthy meals a day.
Below is an example of today's meal (Just today's meal though, I try to change and eat different kinds of food everyday)
1st meal : Half bowl of muesli with cold milk, 150ml yoghurt, 2TBS red beans
2nd meal : Unsweetened tea, A pear, A bowl of pasta (Wheat pasta, mushroom, broccoli, carrots, 2 different kinds of leafy veggies, tofu, tuna, chilli, garlic, onion, half a TBS of soy oil)
3rd meal : Chicken wrap (Wheat wrap, many different raw veggies, chicken)
4th meal : Unsweetened tea, two slices of multigrain bread with unsweetened mango and pineapple jam, an egg, a bowl of oats(no sugar)
I did 30 minutes worth of workout video from Tiffany Rothe. Ran up 13 floors. Did skipping for 15 minutes, weights for 15 minutes( I only have dumbells) and 15 minutes of other cardio (mountain climbers, high knees etc.)
If I do this would I lose fat? Although I'm definitely aiming to gain lean muscle, I want to concentrate on losing that extra fat first. Because m my thights and butt are really too big and seem out of proportion. I do 15 minute of weights though. Because I heard it helps with burning more fat if you do it before cardio.
I don't know how to estimate my calories. How much calories did I consume today? And how much calories did I burn? Did I lose any fat for today? I have a LOT more questions. If there's any one out there willing to answer my questions through private message please do! Thanks! Cheers!
