I haven’t been doing a lot of posting here at WorkoutTipster.com, but I look to get back to making a few blog posts per week. Today is January 11th, 2012 and I am 30 days out of a vacation down to a nice resort in Punta Cana, Dominican with my girlfriend.
The past few months I have been slacking with watching what I eat and have put on about 5-7 pounds of unwanted fat.
My goal in the next 30 days is to lose 9 pounds of fat before I leave for vacation.
Right now I am weighing in at around 197 or 199 and I’d love to get down to 189 for my vacation. That was about the weight I was for my last vacation, and I was pretty lean and feeling pretty good.
So how am I going to lose this weight?
Workouts – I will be doing 6 weightlifting workouts a week (if I can fit them all in – which I should with no excuses). These will be split into chest/arms, back/shoulders, and legs/core – all twice per week. On top of that I will be playing hockey once or twice per week, and will also be adding interval training cardio sessions to add up to a total of 3 cardio workouts per week. Although 6 weightlifting days might seem like a lot, I will be doing shorter and intense workouts which shouldn’t be too taxing on my body.
Eating – My goal is to eat healthy 6 days of the week with the 1 cheat day where I can eat whatever I like. During the 6 healthy days I will be cutting down my carbohydrates (except before and after my workouts I will get some healthy carbs in my body). I am going to cut down my calories overall, and try to eat a lot of healthy proteins and fats to help keep me feeling satisfied.
Fat Loss Supplements – I will be taking my Anavite multi vitamins twice per day as usual, a vitamin C, and Omega-3 Fish Oil pills. I will also be taking Assault Pre workout and a new Ripped Freak fat burner – both of which I will review here shortly (I’ve been on them both for about 2 weeks now).
Other – I might try to start doing some Yoga again as I found Yoga did accelerate my fat loss.
Leave a comment if you’re interested to hear more about my 30 day “cut”, and I will be posting more here regardless if I get any feedback (I know a lot of people don’t like to take the time to leave a comment).
