There is a post here with specifics
So how many calories have you been eating since you started your new exercise plan? (Sorry I know you get the calorie question a lot)
The thing is that, how many calories I eat is irrelevant to anybody else except me, because my calories are based on my age, height, weight and activity level and whether or not I wish to lose weight at any given time. For me, I need about 1600 calories a day if I want to lose weight and about 1800-1900 depending on activity level if I don’t. Every body is different and will have different calorie requirements X
Salad and bloggin’
I am going to do a post about this because there are a lot of questions in my inbox about it and it will be easier to do a post outlining my program X
do you think by lowering your fruit intake and upping your vege intake you have leaned out more? also, are you still low fat or do you eat more fats like avocado etc?
I eat between 10 -15 % fats every day and have a higher fat day of about 20 -30% once a week. I think my exercise routine, combined with my diet are helping me lean out. I lose weight/lean out by eating the calories I need to maintain my body and create a calorie deficit with exercise. I try not to really count calories, but have a rough idea of the calories in what I eat X
fo hiit do you use an exercise bike or actually cycle outside? also, do you do everything at home, or joined the gym?
Everything at home, I have to look after the kids. I put my road bike on a stationary trainer and do it inside. I got a HIIT timer app and just started doing it! Way to cold out here at the moment!
Salad & Roasted Pumpkin. Fav of all favs 😉
Thank you! Thats so nice to hear.
I started a new program about 2 weeks ago and the results have been really good really quick! I do weight training Mon (shoulders), Tues (legs), Wed (chest and back), Fri (legs) and Sat (arms) , just at home with my dumbbells I usually do some crunches and planks on the Thursday, but mainly I do “drawing in” exercise for my abs because I had a huge seperation. I just do them whenever I think of it. I do 3 × 30min HIIT sessions per week on my bike (again just at home on my trainer and not on leg days) and just a few short fast walks the other days. Its seems a lot but it isnt, I squeeze my weights in in between getting the kids breakfast and getting them ready, and do my walks to the shop instead of taking the car. The 3 HIIT sessions are the only thing I need to “make” time for X
