2018 back to 2013
Hi there again.

I'm guilty of starting a number of threads and not finishing them. I was catching up on some of my older threads and my first UD2.0 run I got some really good results. That was back in 2013 now. 4.5 years on and I need to find that drive again.

I was 5-6kgs lighter than I was now and looked like the attachment. My first goal in 2018 is to get back to that photo. Page 7 i think.

Once there I will reassess where I want to be. Ultimately it will be sub 90kgs with a little less LBM.

My stratgegy will be 1lbs of protein per LBM. Small amount of carbs from sweet potatoes rice etc probably not exceeding 100g. Half a banana before and after training. 2000-2400 cals per day.

Training - crossfit, 4-5 per week. Surfing and occasional run 2-3 times per week.

I will log here probably not daily as it can get quite mundane.

My biggest killer will be socially but I am at the time now where I need to think about a few things going forward so some time out from beer etc will be much welcomed. I am not kidding myself but I will have the occasional drink or two but try and keep it in line with overall weekly calorie intake.

Anyway wish me luck.

Starting weight is 101kgs.

Well, is that necessary? Do really like bananas?

Crossfit training is pretty taxing on no to low carbs. Especially since we are into lactate threshold training. I am not doing a low carb diet.

Why would you say not to eat a banana?

Week 1 update.

Week 1 was a good success. No starving myself. Had a weekend away with some drinks, did some good training and surfing. Eating whilst camping wasnt exactly on point but the surfing keep the calorie deficit happening.

Total weight loss 1.5kg. Current on day 2 of Week 2 and at 99.5kg. The average is below 100kg now.

With that in mind I have added another goal. The goal is to ensure that I do not average over 100kgs ever again.

I'd say BF is hovering around 17-18% at the minute.

This week I will continue to surf and hit up crossfit and maybe a couple of easy runs.

Good luck and well done so far, I hear you about never going over 100KG again :-)
I was a happy 95kg last April then let myself get to 109KG by 2nd Jan. I've lost 5kg this month so feel your pain :-)

I think at our weights the water fluctuations are the most annoying. Especially of the body decides to retain water for whatever reason hence why I have taken to averages rather than individual spikes.

Week 2 update.

Low point at 99.3kg.
Average below 100kg for the week.
Back into crossfit, surfing and a little bit of running.

Low lights
Sore achilles. Need to do some mysofacial release on my calfs.
Bit of binge eating but exercise neutralled that out.

Bring on week three.

How are your achilles tendons?

Neilnacarter 02-22-2018 06:54 PM

Schlansky - how are you mate? How are you getting on?

Not so good first thing in the morning but with a bit of movement they get going ok. Been focussing on rolling out the calfs over the handle of a kettlebell where possible... and some static stretching, downward dogs.

Been hampering a few movements.

Still hovering around 100kg, dipping into 99s every now and then.

Going back to IF as an eating plan.

Schlansky 02-23-2018 01:27 AM

Glad to hear that!

Tendon issues can be so annoying, took me ages to overcome my elbow pain...

Now I am back on track and pain free. I will be updating my progress log here in the next weeks when I finish the diet I started over a year ago :)

Funny that we both are going back to IF at almost the same time. I will not travel and diet at the same time without the window, keeps things so much simpler.

All the best!

Week 4
New low of 99.1kg. After training I sweat so much that it dropped down to 98.2kg. Hopefully another new low recording for tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

Diet was a lot better last week. Week 3 was a bit of a write off.

101kg - 99.1kg = 1.9kg in 4 weeks. That is pretty steady.
