I've been wanting to do this for a while, but for some reason lacked the stones to do it. Well, the time has come, methinks.
Name's Allie, 20 year old (21 in July) female college senior. I'm an animator/artist, and therefore spend ridiculous amounts of time in front of a computer working.
Stats as of today are thusly:
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 187 lbs.
BF %: 21.8% (according to this site)
I've actually been following this site for some time now, and been ATTEMPTING to cut for the past year or so, but my resolve hasn't been that great. Sadly, around October of last year I said "**** this" for the time being and gorged out over the holidays. It's very hard to resist, since my father's a gourmet chef (which specialty in pastries no less) and I never get to see him. I ballooned up to almost 200 lbs.
I got tired of not fitting in any of my clothes so I decided to get serious. I weened myself onto the cut slowly, and around Mid-February I fell into a good place.
My goal is honestly just to look great, somewhat cut and curvy, but right now I have my goal weight as 160. Any suggestions for what to shoot for as BF %?
I'm trying to follow the plan Built made for me a while back, getting around 1800 calories on work out days and 1600 on rest days, but on most days it's ended out a bit lower, which I figure isn't a bad thing, since I'm cutting. Instead of posting all my foods twice, I will just link you all to my Fitday, which I keep constantly updated as I go. It's fairly accurate, except for drinks. But considering I drink mostly water and tea, with about only one glass of watered down sweet tea a day, I think that's okay.
As far as workouts go, I did WWB1 until I got bored with it, and now I'm doing WBB2 with some slight variations. Since I don't have a spotter, I find myself unable to do the decline bench (I worry about killing myself) but otherwise I stick to it fairly closely. I'm also looking to implement some of Built's Baby Got Back, but I'm not sure where to place it. Advice is welcome.
Fortunately, as you can see by my current stats, I've had some progess, but I'm wondering how well I'm doing. Feedback is welcome!
Today is actually an off day, so I've no workout to post, but I'll be doing some Legs/Back tomorrow. Details will be posted thusly!
