Week 4 is done and this week a lot changed. My macros are now 150C 160P and 56F and this was a new week of lifts. We lifted 6x a week and cardio was bumped up to HIIT instead of moderate. By Saturday my legs were killing me and I was sore all over, that’s good right? Making gains right?
Well I made my daughter hide the scale this week so I wouldn’t weigh in daily.
Start weight was 175, last week I was 174 and today I was 176. I’m so not letting it define me and I’m 100% chalking it up to gains. I know my quads and glutes have gotten bigger and that’s muscle weight dammit!
My intake on my macros hasn’t been perfect, I typically over on fats , calories and carbs and I miss protein by a little ( under ).
This week I will focus on low fat protein, getting in more veggies and try to keep carbs balanced. I feel good about my lifts and the 8 million squats I seem to be doing, booty gains.
Now onto the pics, I don’t see any changes personally but there has to be right? Who puts this much dedication into it without physically seeing results?
Week 1 to Week 4
I’m not giving up, I’m going into this week 5 super focused. My iron levels are getting better ( I’m not nearly as fatigued) and I’m lifting heavier. My goal is to lean out and build muscle.
How are my other Alpha ladies doing?
