What a glorious day on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet!
It’s day 19 and and the moderate carb day of cycle 4. I’m seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and it makes me want to sprint to the finish line!
Today was another weird eating day. It was SO unusually hot here in upstate NY for this time of year that I think it actually suppressed my appetite. Except for a few bites of almond butter before bed, my last meal was at 3:30 pm……just no desire to eat until it cooled off.
Here’s what I ate today:
- oatmeal with almond milk
- protein powder
Normally, oatmeal doesn’t make me as happy as it does on moderate carb day – and it made me REALLY happy!
- Turkey sandwich
- Green salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives, and chicken
Snack right before bed:
- 2 tbs almond butter
This was my attempt to get a little protein and fat in for the day, never actually ate those 2 protein and fat meals I should have had.
My workouts today were pretty good, did the full dynamic workout, which I think is my favorite workout of the entire cycle, and did 15 minutes of kettlebell swings.
BTW, I’m getting so good and strong from kettlebell swings that I now have to use the two I have and swing them both so I have enough weight to do a good workout. I guess it’s time for a 30 pounder.
So, I am about to finish up my 4th cycle on the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet and start my 5th and final cycle. My plan is to go absolutely all out with this cycle and be relentless in pursuit of my goals.
With that, I was thinking about what I was going to do when the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet was over. My gut feeling is that I will be well on my way to meeting my fitness goals but most likely won’t be quite there yet. I am going to want to do something to keep the momentum going.
There are a ton of options for me to choose from ranging from diet plans to exercise plans to diet and exercise plans.
I could even stick with my own home workouts fitness plan, Ultimate Home Workouts.
So, I thought I would list out some possible programs to jump into after XFLD is complete (in no particular order):
Cheat Your Way Thin (CYWT) – Joel Marion’s original fat loss diet, the deal is pretty much the same as in the Xtreme Fat Loss Diet except it is drawn out from a 5 day cycle to a 7 day cycle (another shake day and moderate carb day is added).
