    Wow. You're killing it. That's a fantastic average! And don't forget that you're also gaining muscle.

    • Before this challenge is over I'm going to do a push up. I've never done one in my life. A real one.

        Good for you. It is very doable.

        • Since my goal was to add muscle and not lose weight I have made sure to be calorie positive each day for the last two weeks. For me this trial was about increasing muscle mass and reducing body fat, for most others it was about fat and weight loss. Today's weight of 172 lbs is up a total of 4 lbs since I started. Definitely not fat as I can tell by looking in the mirror that I look a bit leaner than when I started, but feel I've gained some muscle in my chest, arms and shoulders because my T-Shirts are definitely tighter. Also I've probably added some leg muscle due to my intense leg workouts.

          Great workout this morning! I did intervals on the track first, followed by my leg workout at the gym.

          Jog 1 mile to the Track
          10 X 100 meters
          Jog 1 mile back to the Gym

          Squats - 15 X 135 lbs., 10 X185 lbs, 8 X 225lbs, 6 X275 lbs, 3 X 295 lbs
          Hack Squats - 12 X 135 lbs, 10 X 185 lbs, 8 X 205lbs.
          Burn out set of Squats - 20 X 135lbs.

          Thigh extensions - 150lbs/Leg Curl - 90lbs/Calf Raises - 220lbs (Tri-Sets 3 X12)

          It's been great hearing about everyone's experience and results! Really appreciate all of your contributions to the thread. Refeed day tomorrow and then just one more week for those of us that started at the beginning. Its amazing to me how fast a month goes by. Wishing all of those just starting the best!

          • As it's the end of my 2nd week into the steak and eggs experiment, I thought I'd put up some update shots:

            No major difference, but I've lost just over 1/2" off my waist, while maintaining chest/arm size. I haven't weighed myself since before I started (was 73.5kg / 162lbs the week before, which is normal give or take 1/2 a kg).

            Might be able to get to my in-law's to weigh myself today, if not it'll be next weekend.

            • I can see a difference. The V is showing more on your tummy nicely framing that cute little patch of fuzz you have under the navel. Forgive this shamelessly leering old lady.

              • Thanks PB, leer away 😊

                As per the norm, I'm just too lazy for my own good. While I have been trading 3 to 4 times a week (a mix if body weight, weighted body weight and weights) I haven't been done any sprinting. It doesn't help that it's now dark by the time I finish work and raining often. But there is a cardio room at work (which I've yet to step foot into), so I'm going to get in there at least once this week. Probably do some rowing sprints.

                • Congrats Misabi. I think your improvement is very good. Especially the oblique - ab tie in and the emergenging definition of the abs. Great results!

                  • That's some serious progress! I'm looking forward to seeing my own results. I'm only on day two. Now for a little breakfast!

                    • I'm feeling seriously undermotivated right now. The thought of beef does not make me want to eat.

                        Perhaps you should start your refeed tonight.

                          I was going to say the same thing. I was so over steak (never get tired if eggs) towards the end of the first week, but after the refeed I was actually looking forward to getting back to it. The second week I through the refeed in earlier and it stopped me from getting to the "can't stand another steak" phase.

                          • This is not related to this thread but I wanted to share it with all of you. I love these two videos! - Paleo training to the Max! I think I will get cetified as a MovNat trainer. I will probably try this out sometime before the end of the year.

                            • I think you would be an excellent trainer, Canuck. You're very encouraging and motivating. I'm going to watch those later.

                              eKatherine, try a different protein maybe?

                              Misabi, looking good! I can definitely see more definition.

                              • I wasn't craving carbs. By the time I read the post I had eaten bacon, ham, and swiss cheese, with a few macadamia nuts. If I am still on the protocol next week, I probably will push carb day up by a day or two.
