Plan: Atkins Induction
Stats: 160/130/116 Female 61 inches - 5ft 1"
BF:32.8/19/15
Progress: 68%
Location: UK Christchurch, Dorset
Default Fast as a cheetah, as strong as a Lion

So here is the gym log of the crazy cat lady, at least that's what my friends call me!
Up to today the following has been my routine
monday 1 x spinning 1 x 2 mile run, 30 mins ab's
Tues rest day
Weds 30 mins abdominal conditioning, 2 x spin classes back to back
Thurs body conditioning or body pump
Friday 1 hours personal training plus 2 x spin.
Sat body conditioning & spin
Sunday, rest day

I eat 1000 calories a day on average at induction level. I have tried eating more but I'm just not hungry & find myself feeling bloated and sick from forcing in more food.
I've lost 9lbs in first 2 weeks then nothing for 2 weeks, then 2lbs, then nothing for a while then another pound 2 weeks ago.

I measure and have been losing inches even though no weight.

I've been told that I do too much cardio & too much exercise so my body will want to hold onto fat. That I may be cannibalising my muscles.
So here is my new plan of action for the next 2 week

Monday warm up of spin, followed by 1 mile of alternating 3 mins sprint & 3 mins walk, 20 mins ab's

Tuesday rest day

Wednesday 2 x spin classes back to back

Thursday body pump

Friday personal training which is going to be all weights and ab's, no cardio, Friday evening 2x spin back to back.

I am going to try and force more protein and fat into me & increase my calorie intake, I use the word force as it is going to be hard work.

Here is hoping for the right results

My trainer had some extra time this morning so we spent an hour and half torturing my abdomen, butt, things & arms. It hurts now, never mind tomorrow! tonight I did 2 spin classes, boy it was hot tonight, I must have sweated a pound at least!

Tonight's spinning was with one of my favourite instructors called Karen. We have a love hate relationship, she has the slimmest figure, perfectly toned, not a scrap of fat on her and nothing wobbles, I love her figure, just hate the fact she has it and I don't!! lol

So I'm going to enjoy the weekend, exercise free now & recover. All reading for Monday's fun & games!

So we are back to Monday. Tonight it is spinning for 30 mins followed by 2 miles of 3 mins run 3 mins walk, followed by half an hour on the ab's.
I got hardly any sleep last night thanks to husbands snoring & wriggling. Im finding it hard to stay awake at work and asking myself if I can summon the energy for exercise. maybe with a large dose of chocolate, hang on, thats was the old me. I best make do with coconut oil before i leave work for my energy source.
See what tiredness does, brings obn thoughts of evil chocolate!! lol

Tomorrow is personal training in the morning followed by 2 spins in the evening. If i then force my aching body to body conditioning saturday morning i may hopefully have lost an inch somewhere.

So Thursday evening I did body conditioning, followed by body pump. Was a new pump routine so my triceps are still hurting & it's Sunday now! Friday morning was personal training, working mainly on the stomach, thighs & arms and 2 spin classes Friday evening.
This week I've lost an inch off my butt & can actually see a bit of a bicep forming on my arm which was previously shapeless.
Still can't get my size 10 trousers on though!

Tonight I did bootcamp with my trainer & a group of his other clients. Warmed up with a spin, followed by a 2 mile run broken into 3 min sprint then 3 min power walk, followed by some abdominal work.
Running is not my forte at all, I really struggle with it!

The second spin instructor was off last night (Henry)so we had Rob for both lessons. Whilst he is a nice bit of eye candy, his classes are really hard. He did the same set, for both and my legs are killing me this morning.
Ive got body conditioning and body pump booked for tonight. If my legs have not eased up by 3 today then im going to have to cnacel conditioning or i wont make it through pump!!

Just got back from 2 spin classes. Was really hot tonight. Think a hot soak in bath salts is in order or my body is going nowhere tomorrow & body conditioning is ~ 9.30am.
Sometimes I think I might be mad, then I realise Ive been mad for years!!

Today was a different woman for body conditioning. I really liked her class though. The aerobic first half was really easy to follow compared to the usual woman. Uncordinated me actually looked quite good, instead of the usual going the opposite way to everyone else. The second half which was the toning bit was also better than usual. Slow & easy to follow & I know it's going to hurt tomorrow.
Oh well no pain no gain!

Was totally boiling in spinning tonight. The second class the instructor is the guy I do my personal training with & tonight he had a cd with music on I'd copied for him. In return for this he spent the whole class shouting at me to PUSH, FASTER!
I'm so ready for my bed tonight & know my legs are going to hurt tomorrow morning!!
