Hi, I'm Alissa ;-). I'm 5'5, 27 years old, and 135 pounds, depending on the day & what scale I'm using ;-) I am trying to build muscle, but what I really want to do is get to 18% BF..I'm at 24.3% right now...
I'm going to start journaling on here. I read a lOT of stuff on fitness & diet (especially bb.com!)...but I still feel kinda lost. Such as, am i exercising enough, eating enough or too many calories for the small amount that I work out? I have a part-time job and I go to college full time.
Right now I'm doing a ratio of 40/35/25 (C/P/F)
(I couln't decide between 40/30/30 and 40/40/20, so I compromised!
1820 calories on workout days (assuming I burn 250 calories), 1450 on non-workout days.
I started working out about a month ago, I am able to make it there MWF so far. I really want to take the gravity pilates class that my gym has on T & TH nights, but it ends 1/2 hr before my class starts...with driving & parking, I've only been able to make it a couple times I'm trying,with work & school, it's hard to make it to the gym more than 3 times...I wish I could go 4-5 times...
At this rate, it's going to take me 4 months to even tell any kind of difference, isn't it?
