Day 15 – Fat loss and muscle gain

so, i am now on Day 15 of the program and i figured it’s time to check my progress.

earlier today, i took pictures of myself in the same clothes as i did on day one so that i can see if there have been changes, if at all. i placed them side by side to make it easier to see. but, alas. no change yet. which for me is still a good thing because at least i’m not gaining any weight despite cheating on this thing. oops. i mean… errr… hehe.

anyway, here ya go.

 like i said, no difference at all. below are the other pics i took.

image  image  now this post is not to discredit the Slow Carb Diet or the Four Hour Body. not at all. the lack of change in my body composition is all on me. i am eating better now but obviously, a stricter adherence to the program is required. i think i overdid the exercise a bit. (yes! there is such a thing.) my appetite always increases when i up my physical activity. i expected this from the start. so from now on, i’ll stick to the weights (which require no more than 5 minutes to do. this is probably the reason i add other activities. the Four Hour Body workouts make me think like i haven’t done enough to initiate fat burning) and no cardio.

oh, and some bonus pictures. ;P

 

image  got carried away there during the shoot. and i felt a bit playful.

so there you have it. 15 days into this program and all we got so far are funny poses. imma keep at it till it becomes a habit. the program, not the poses. till it’s no longer a struggle to ignore my cravings. till i don’t have to drag my butt out of bed to do my kettlebell swings. till… well, till i’m 85. (i’ll spare you the pics before then, don’t worry.)

Day 1- Fat loss and Muscle gain

this is a late post, actually, so i wanna apologize. i will say that i will not try to post my progress everyday as i agree with Yoda when he said, there is no try. so i will, from now on, post everyday what my day on this program looks like. and since i was unable to post yesterday, i am gonna show you how i did these past two days.

yesterday was pretty easy. i set my alarm to wake me up at 5:30am. i jumped out of bed and immediately weighed myself and took my measurements. i made sure i didn’t forget this step because had i forgotten, i wouldn’t have any information to base my progress on. so as much as i dreaded finding out what my measurements were, i got my tape and faced the truth head on.

the results are in:
