Maintenence NSVS :-)

Hi folks,

Thought I'd share my latest NSVs since I started my recomp :-

I am on week 8. I cut back on cardio and started lifting consistently at end of Aug, plus yoga twice a week. (Used to do over 20k a day, mix of running and walking - now average 14k )

In the past week several people have mentioned that I'm losing weight - I'm not, but I am losing inches :)

My weight bounced up a few pounds when I started new workout programme but after first month swung back down to goal.

I love that already my biceps are looking mighty fine. ..my glutes are tight...heck everything is tight. Just the lower belly now but I know that in the coming months I'll see a reduction in that too.

I'm feeling fantastic :smiley:

My TDEE still averages 2200. :smile:

So to anyone not sure about lifting weights. ..just do it! :smile:

    Good for you! Congrats! And I fully agree. The best thing I did was drastically reduce cardio and increase my lifting. Completely changed my body shape.

    Oh I am so exited for you. Congratulations on your progress.

    I hope you will post at least before and after pics. Progress would be nice too.

    Glad to hear your cals haven't had to drop with your cardio drop.

    If I had your cals I would splurge it on cocktails and cheesecake.

    Cheers, h.

    @middlehaitch oh I have had to drop my calories just a tad, my TDEE when I was purely cardio and averaging 21k steps a day/10 miles was 2400. I still aim for 14k minimum a day which has dropped my TDEE to 2200. To be safe I eat around 2000, but thats because on the weekends I can and do eat upwards of 2400! If I did hardly any cardio at all my TDEE would drop to 1600 approx. I've got used to eating more so I simply have to keep moving, which I love anyway or I would have to rethink my eating routine.#

    Fitbit is a great tool for keeping me right on TDEE :smile:

    I'm not sure I can share my progress pics, I took them in my underwear as they were just for me... but from now on I will be sure to take APPRORIATE ones so I could share them one day lol

    cheers, Ruth

    Hi @RunRutheeRun :smiley: I just came across your topic when I searched the on the word recomp. Great to hear how much your body is changing and the scale stays the same :wink:
  • LivingtheLeanDreamLivingtheLeanDream Member Posts: 13,348 Member Member Posts: 13,348 Member
    @kim55555 you and I both know not to pay too much heed to the scale but its a hard habit to break.
    If I could keep on losing my belly fat I would be a very happy bunny and I think the recomp is just the thing :smile:
