Photo Shoot Challenge
★ Weight: 63.8kg
On Friday 12 December I am committed to participating in a photo shoot with Shelley and Nicole. I have 6 weeks to shift as much weight as I can.
I once commented that it would interesting to prep for a competition in only 6 weeks because it would force you to absolutely focus 100% as there is no time to stuff around - and here I am doing it.
There will be all of the usual pre-comp antics - tanning, hair, makeup, new outfit, nails, sodium depleting and carb loading - along with rice cakes and honey and jelly snakes on the day.
Last week was a good start with my nutrition much more under control. I think I lost some fat but it is hard to tell as I cut back on my carbs so most of it is probably water weight loss. The plan is simple - 1400-1500 calories a day and normal training without too much cardio (so I can keep my new muscles and add cardio in towards the end to get off the last few grams of fat). I am incorporating the "dirty diana" diet strategy which is a daily indulgence in not so nutritious food except my treats are far more decadent than a pepsi max and protein bar (think carrot cake and Snickers bars!)
I know that in order to be lean enough in the lower half, my upper body looks like a skeleton so I am not going to go that far. I probably won't do the whole bikini thing but rather some sexy workout gear with a singlet and pants (like the photo). I would be happy to lose about 5 kilos which would put me around 58-59 kgs. Unfortunately my usual weight loss pattern is only about 1/2 a kilo a week so this is an ambitious target but I am going to do my best (which is, after all, all I can do!).
