Our summer holiday is sadly over and this week both of us go back to the NHS grind : as well as that i go back into my fitness and ‘diet’ to crash myself back into ketosis with today being a 24 hr food fast until a solid meal this evening (24 hrs from last meal).
When we got back from our long road trip i was disappointed that my weight seemed to have stayed absolutely stable over the holiday despite doing a decent amount of walking and not being silly with the cakes. My weight was just over a hundred KG before we left and exactly the same the day after we got home. Since then its taken 2 real drops almost overnight and at about half a kilo a night so i am now down to exactly 99 kg this morning which is a real morale boost and more significantly my normal belt is in easily 1 inch which definiteley says fat loss.
Todays workout was a walk of around 5,000 steps followed by a weights routine and i pushed that a step harder today with :
First group : press-ups aiming for 3 sets of 10 but done as 12, 10, 8 and with a set of deadlift 1×10 done between each set so
Press-ups 12 Deadlift 60kg 1×10. Press-ups 10 Deadlift 70kg 1×10 Press-ups 8 Deadlift 70kg 1×10
Overhead ‘bounce’ press 30kg 1 x10 paired with sitting dips : Dips 1×6 OHP 30kg 1×10 Dips 1×7 OHP 30KG 1X10 Dips 1×7 OHP 30kg 1×10
Then Press-ups 10 and deadlift 60kg 1×10.
Finisher : walk up road and back to cool off.
Thats the hardest workout so far and especially given that it was done in a low energy state.
Plans for the next 2 weeks then :
7 sessions of similar weight training
10 extended walks with slightly increased weight.
Continuation of atkins-esque ketosis induction phase.
