Weeks 4 & 5

 Well guys fantastic two weeks on the food front. Its become so easy! My sugar cravings are negligible. We are rid of the high juice with my water and I have to admit I just crave water.

 

Training has been going great as well. Week 4 included 5 days of training, doing a strength workout followed by a metabolic conditioning workout. E.g. 1 rep max back squat, then 20 minutes; as many rounds as possible of: 10 x dead-lift, 7 x hang power cleans, 5 x thrusters.

 

Week 5 has been of the same format. I feel like I need a change with my training program but Monday-Friday is a great little routine to get into and really facilitates getting to the gym. A weeks holiday next week will provide a different training schedule, routine and make me use the out doors. Very Blair Morrison! A change in scenery will be fantastic, a new challenge without the usual gym equipment I've been so spoilt with.

16.2% :) pleasing news! We are slowly chiselling away the body fat. 1.2% off in about 3 weeks. I think the aim is to hit 1% a week, so I think I'm just going to have to work that little bit harder. I'm coming to the end of my insulin protocol supplementation. The new readings suggest a different protocol, however I think I'm going to see how my body reacts to a holiday before deciding on my next steps.

 

Onwards & Upwards!
