Starting today, my new mission (in addition to endurance training) will be to have visible abdominals, i.e. six pack, by March 1, 2009.
Here is where I stand now...
Body Weight: 168 lbs
Total Body Fat: 13-14%
Fat weight: 23 lbs
Lean Body Mass: 145 lbs
In order to have visible abdominals, I will need to reach the following:
Body Weight: 156 lbs
Total Body fat: 8%
Fat weight: 11 lbs
Lean Body mass: 145 lbs
In 2.5 months from December 15, 2008, I will lose about 12 lbs of body fat, 4.3 pounds per month, or 1.2 pound per week.
Theoretically, I will need about 3500 calorie deficit per week or 500 per day.
Here is my promise...
1. To update my blog daily with the day's calorie deficit. I will also make notes about the day (what I ate, how much I exercises, and where my calorie deficit came from i.e. nutrition, exercise, or both).
2. In addition to daily updates, I will update weekly (every Monday, starting next Monday) with the new statistics
3. Most of my calorie deficit will come through training.
4. I will use the Accumeasure Body Fat Calipers to measure my fat loss and a house-scale for body weight.
Q: Why did I choose to start this in mid-December instead of waiting until January 1?
A: Because I want to start early so that I can finish early. Also, most people set the so-called "New Year Resolution Goals", of which most fall apart within the first week or two. If you want to change, start NOW... waiting for a specific date is a recipe for failure.
