Week 9: Arctichacker -pics of progress
Nothing as dramatic as the lovely Akane but I finally got my butt into my skivvies and figure out how to work the timer in my camera.
Tomorrow is my Week 9 Cheat Day!
Week 6 was my last progress blog. I decided to start having cheat days every week and half instead of weekly. So far I've done 2 cycles. The first 10 day cycle was hard to get through towards the end. I think part of it was that it was new and I was used to the weekends being about Cheat Day. This recent 10 day cycle was easier.
My only other major tweak was having edamame as my main carb. I know some folks have issue with soy but I like edamame. I also upped my protein and fats. I kept off the sweeteners and red wine during the regular SCD week.
Here's where I started at 9 weeks ago.
Here I am now:
are starting get some good definition.
The pudge is coming off ofpretty nicely too:
(I don't know how to post photos directly onto the site. sorry)
I'm somewhere around 17% BF according to Jackson-Pollock 4 calculations. I'm not sure about this. I kinda eyeballed myself nearer to 20% but regardless I'm seeing progress.
Last time I checked I was down to 130lbs. The more I progress, the less I care about that number on the scale.
I still have to work on getting enough sleep and minimizing stress.
Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Awesome Pics!!! To me, you don't look like you need to lose anything. But, I agree that everyone has their "ideal body image" in mind. I'm not there yet, but at least you got "flat tummy action" going! I can definitely see the difference in your body shape/toning even though you've only gone down like 6 lbs.
Keep it up! Get to that body fat % you desire as well as your toning/sculpted self!
