WhiteGhost Spot Reduces Belly Fat


Recommended Posts

Shortly after the end of this challenge I will be heading to the beach and need to get my beach body in shape for that.  However, I have a bit of unwanted fluff around my midsection so it is time for me to do something about it.  My plan? Spot reduce that stubborn belly fat.

 

Doctors HATE him!: memes

 

Now, I know what you are thinking.  They say "you can't spot reduce belly fat".  

 

Here's what I say to that: Bollocks*

 

First of all, I don't know who "they" are but they probably have fancy degrees and things that cloud up their minds with "knowledge" and "information".   But here's the thing, If I can spot gain belly fat, I sure as heck can spot reduce it**

How am I going to do this I hear you asking.  Easy, see below for details

1. Super Foods - I am going to eat a lot of "super foods" like chicken, shrimp, and fish.  In conjunction with this I am going limit carbs in the form of sugary snacks and increase fresh vegetables.

2.  Regular Exercise - I will keep interval running after my workouts but continue to focus on strength and skills work.    I am probably not going to be able to do much gymnastics stuff while my tattoo is in progress so I will instead focus on levers and muscle ups for skill work.

3. Nutritional Supplements - I checked the NF protein calculator and realized I was nowhere close to the recommended protein needed to maintain or grow muscle mass.  I am going to continue to supplement with protein to minimize the loss of muscle mass while in caloric deficit.

My target is to lose 5kgs by the close of the challenge,  additional goal is to reduce BF% to under 20%

 

I will probably do other stuff as well ;)

I spent most of yesterday morning just sitting in front on my computer doing very little.  Mostly NF and watching some Youtube.  Around noon I headed over to the east side to drop off some treats I made for our church's young women camping activity this week.  I realized when I got there that the lady lived very close to the town's only Taco Bell so I decided to have that for lunch.  It was OK but I was very disappointed to realize they were using mozzarella instead of cheddar for their tacos :( (mozzarella is much cheaper here so I think it is a cost thing.  I asked Ghostess and she says she probably couldn't taste the difference)

 

After lunch I headed over to the tattoo shop for my next tattoo session.  I though he was going to work on my upper arm but instead he finished up the inner forearm instead.  I slapped together a comparison photo to show how the forearm looked after 1, 2 and 3 sessions

(The actual blade part on the wrist is still unfinished.  I think he is planning to leave the most painful part for last)

 

The last two pictures look quite similar at first glace, but it took about 6 hours to do.  The fine detail is quite time consuming.

Yesterday I didn't do a whole lot.  No workout was planned as it is my tattoo recovery day so I spent most of the morning watching Youtube. 

 

In the afternoon I went to the cobbler to pick up some shoes I had taken in to get repaired for Ghostess.  It was about a mile and a half, so not too bad but better than nothing.  

 

Ghostess came home early from work and so we all headed over to a local mall to pick up some shoes and shorts for Ghostlet, who has somehow managed to grow out of the stuff we bought him just a few months ago. 

 

We picked up some sausages for dinner while we were there, but Ghostlet was super hungry and ended up eating them all, so I just cut up some boiled eggs and them them on a bag of ready made salad greens and topped it off with some blue cheese and olives.

Learn this one WEIRD trick - Meme Guy

 

Yesterday morning was D&D day.  I woke up in the morning and still had no idea what I was going to do my campaign that day.  I hurriedly scrolled through a bunch of monsters and picked some that I thought would be appropriately challenging.  Just in case it was too hard, I had one of them in another room so I could keep it back if it got too hard.  They plowed through everyone including the backup like cutting though butter with a hot knife.  It wasn't even a challenge for them.  At least I think they had fun with it.

 

In the afternoon I headed over to the hospital for my second vaccine shot.  I don't think the vaccine here is particularly great, but it had got to be better than nothing.  Beijing had our first case of the Delta variant get confirmed yesterday so I think my timing is pretty good.

 

In the evening I finished of the last of our Chicken Tikka Masala and made some Deffy naan to go with it.  Ghostlet was like "the chicken is pretty meh but we should totally have this naan more often" :D

What we are starting to see here is that people that have had both vaccinations (or the one with J&J) are getting infected with mostly (or exclusively) Delta variant. They are much less sick and generally don't need hospitalization. It's also the incentive why we are trying to push out last vaccinations. Belgium is now at ~70% partially and ~55% fully vaccinated (adults in Flanders is at: 90% partially and 72% fully).

 

Government is also trying to shift focus off of infections as this is not the strain on the healthcare system that it used to be. With the exceptions of a few larger gatherings life is turning back to normal here.

Yeah, for sure. In my state of Misery, we’re definitely dealing with a bunch of people who are not getting vaccinated for political reasons. Though they’re changing their mind now that we have vaccine lottery prizes. 
 

Of course, we’re already in the news as being one of the worst Delta Variant hotspots in the country. I’d be a LOT less concerned if I didn’t have 4 kids too young to get vaccinated; I’m no longer really concerned for myself or Jessie since the vaccines seem to do a good job of, at the very least, preventing serious infection. Still terrified of giving it to the kiddos though.

See, that’s my secret. And my curse. I gain almost exclusively in my belly and face. Which means losing even a measly amount really affects the look of my waist. And I carry weight pretty well. But it’s also some of the least healthy places to carry fat and gaining just a little does bad things, so…
