So, what is my plan? I'm jumping on the IIFYM wagon after watching Skinny Meg shrink and wittle herself some awesome muscles. I've been doing it (not so great some days, other days pretty decent) for about a month and I'm ready to jump in with both feet. According to the IIFYM calculator, I get 137 carbs/148 protein/65 fats a day with 1700 calories to do that with. That's a shit ton of food. This last month, I've been working with those numbers and learning how to get that much protein in per day, because that is a learning curve. And for a girl like me, that thinks its weird that they are telling me to eat more and I'll still lose, that just seems wrong. But, my numbers are based on lifting weights at least 3 days a week. Eating that much food without big workouts would cause a gain.
I woke up Monday morning ready to see results and do the work needed. So far this week I worked legs Monday including 100 squats and this AM I worked arms and shoulders. I plan to do at least 40 minutes of just cardio tomorrow and do a Body Pump class this Friday. I will have hit my goal of 3 days a week of weight lifting. I might move to 4 someday but I thinks we'll start here.
Be prepared for a lot of pics that look like this. I had just done 100 jumping jacks to finish my workout because it seemed like a good idea.
And like this.
Best workout song for always.
