courtniemarie cuts for real


Recommended Posts

snapshot of progress over the past couple months:

 

height:

5’6.5”

 

weight:

2/6/16 – 164.4lbs

3/4/16 – 163.3lbs

4/2/16 – 162.4lbs

 

so something’s *working* I guess. but not fast enough my friends. I was 154.change in October 2015. so what the hell? making food/nutrition quest 1 this go-round.

 

Quest 1

Q881AhE_0.gif

*no crap food from work. eat only what I bring in. this includes hot chocolate packets which I made an exception for last challenge… wut?

*keep weekly calorie intake within 300 calories of 12,200 for the third and fourth weeks and within 10,450 for the first and second weeks (6 days each*). 4/16/16 will not be counted in my weekly total as it’s the day we’ll be celebrating the SO’s birthday. I’ll still track food and be smart but I wanted to give myself that day for my sanity and so that the SO doesn’t get bummed by me saying “no I can’t have any of those things you want.” also, I realize this challenge started yesterday but I am starting today.

*cook all breakfasts and at least one lunch or dinner meal at home each weekend. I already do breakfast at home well on the weekends so I’ll just be tracking the lunch/dinner meal.

*take measurements and progress photos for challenge end

 

Quest 2

tumblr_n5b50nMMAZ1qdjo2ho2_r1_400.gif

*complete 5 lifting sessions per week

lifting 5x/week and three of those times will be front squats

 

Quest 3

ea31b4438a83507f4fabfbcae6ccaa387934e4ee

*complete 30 minutes of foam rolling or mobility per week

*complete four yoga sessions throughout the challenge

*complete 2 cardio sessions throughout the challenge

 

i would like to be in a comfortable place before my trip to FL the first weekend of May!

Five days a week! Ooft! What's the programme like beyond front squats?

 

it looks like Big Six so my workouts only run about 37-40 minutes each. so 5x per week isn't bad. i do bench with front squat day and either rows or abz. then the other day is DLs, OHP, and either pulldowns or more abz!

Whatever the magic number is, it's more than however many minutes I spend in the gym that's for sure. Because I'm not even approaching garbage disposal status and my hips have not shrunk one iota. So more than 405.

Hiiiiii!!! Yeah the switch over did some weird things to followed threads - so glad ya found me!! You know I'm not sure if it's better or worse to be closer or further away from a goal. Both distances still feel like the goal is out of reach lol

My challenge is to not eat like a jerk. But maybe I'd have more success if I called it a cut? Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet?

 

Actually i know a few nerds that have had much better success calling their "cut" just "not eating like a jerk" hahaha i think they both stink though.

There's something to be said for propagating a negative relationship with food by calling it "not eat like a jerk". I know a couple nerds who changed to calling it a 'cut' instead and had better success for the mental aspect. 

 

Food for thought, YMMV. :)
