Week 8, Day 2

Man this rapid fat loss diet plan is no joke. Seriously, I think I was being overly optimistic. I don’t know if I can do this for another 12 days. I hate all my meals. I have nothing to look forward to. And whey protein is about one of the worst things I’ve ever had in my life. This is seriously hard. If I didn’t have a deadline this close, I would so revert back to Leangains where I would be eating healthy but I would be eating healthy stuff I like.

But this is a commitment. I am going to try to push through this, for as long as I can. Maybe it just takes some getting used to. At least, that’s what I’m hoping. Otherwise, I am seriously screwed. The next 12 days are going to be incredibly rough. I might not make it.

Meals of the day

Meal 1: 1 scoop of whey protein and a multivitamin (at 08 00) YUCK

Meal 2: 1 scoop of whey protein and a multivitamin (at 14 30) EWWWWW

Meal 3: Chicken salad (at 17 00) The only saving grace..sorta



Yay!! This is my gym look. I’m sorry I can’t do better. I can’t upload pictures of me on the treadmill or pictures of me actually doing my exercises because I don’t have a personal trainer or a gym buddy. So this is the best I can manage. I would sound ridiculous if I actually asked someone to take a picture of me in the gym. That would be hilarious.


But more seriously though..

Day 2, as I mentioned yesterday, is shoulders, biceps and triceps (+ cardio).

So at the gym I did:

1. 30 minutes steady rate cardio at speeds 8.5, 9.2 and 10.0 (3×10 minutes) And yes, I increased my cardio intensity. 10.0 is a new number.

2. Shoulders, biceps and triceps. To see my exercises, download the exercise guide below.

==> Day 2 Exercise Guide (PDF)

Credits to Bodybuilding.com where the pictures were taken from to compile this guide. The exercises in the guide follow the workout routine of Rusty Moore’s Visual Impact for Women, with a small modification.

I do 4 sets of 5 reps on all the exercises.

And as for what weights you could use, the same rule applies as what we discussed yesterday.

“As for what weights you’ll be using, you’ll have to experiment a little bit in the 1st week of doing this program. I’m starting with 5kg. Basically, pick a weight that allows you to perform 5 reps on all 4 sets. You shouldn’t really go to failure on these; always have 1 – 2 reps “in the tank” (extra reps that you could probably do, but don’t). Don’t go too light either; it should still be challenging!”

3. High intensity interval cardio for 10 minutes at speeds 5.7 (walking speed) and 11.0-12.0 (sprinting speed).
