Don't worry, I'm alive! B and I took an amazing long vacation to the mountains with friends, and I'm finally back with my head on straight (kind of). I know I'm late on the "I can't believe it's a new year" post, but seriously. Can you believe it? I typically don't make new years resolutions because I like to set goals for myself all throughout the year, and it just so happens it's time for one of those goals! I have been lifting heavy and not doing any cardio for the past few months, and I have seen some great gains, but now it's time to start the lean down process. On top of not doing cardio there was a little bit too much of this going on over the past month or so....
I have a lot going on in March, so I want to be in great shape by then.
So, the loose plan is this:
January- Keep eats the same (carbs pretty high, protein high, fats lower) but start doing cardio 3 times a week.
February- Start lowering carbs a touch and bump up the cardio to 4-5 times a week.
March- Lower carbs but increase fats to compensate, lower overall calories, circuit style training plus cardio.
I'm now the proud owner of a Polar FT40 (woohoo!!) thanks to HHGreg, and it is going to be AWESOME to have over the next few months.
It will help me figure out my calorie burns so that I can better gauge how much I should be eating.
So now it's your turn to spill your resolutions, and you're going to get an awesome prize from my friends at H.H. Gregg!
