I am ready to kick things up a bit, and take my body out of this plateau-ish happy place that it seems to love. I don't have a lot of weight to lose (which could be the reason for my body wanting to hold on to it) but it seems I just can't break through the last stretch. So here is my plan. Please comment, make suggestions, offer differing advice if need be... I welcome all of it in the hopes of incorporating further ideas and keeping me motivated!
My goal is to lean out (I seem to be skinny-fat at this point). I look great fully-clothed, but I would never dare put on a bikini because of all the flab and lack of tone.
3 days per week will be workout days with IF until noon. Light lunch followed by a workout around 4 pm. Second (post workout) meal will be larger, with lots of carbs and moderate protein/fat.
4 days per week will be non-workout days with IF until noon or longer if I can push it, and meals will be very low carb but more fat.
I am dairy free, keep well hydrated, don't drink coffee (but drink 2-3 teas), and get lots of sleep. I don't eat very much fruit and keep occassional snacks to a maximum of a few nuts with a small piece of dark chocolate.
Any other suggestions to speed things up??
