Well, I took a month off of hardcore exercise and strict calorie counting/timeline eating, I did not gain weight but I did not lose any either. I have been back to my personal trainer now for 2 weeks and am starting to enjoy it again, also feeling the benefits. I had my weigh in and skin fold testing done and since I have started in January, my numbers have reduced a fair amount, the weight I have lost has been 88% fat loss, YAYYYYYYY. Keeping that muscle I have worked so HARD to get. I think if I can do that good with so little cardio and essentially taking off a month, how well will I do if I up my work outs. I have just signed up for a 3 day/4week boot camp hopefully followed by a 3day/6week one with my personal trainer. I think my biggest challenge will be making sure that with all that cardio I get enough protein so I don't lose any lean muscle. Instead of having 3 workout days with mainly it being weights and only 15 min of cardio I will be having 3 cardio 60 min days, 2 weight lifting with 15 min cardio. My goal is 8% body fat reduction by June, I know that is a lot to ask and I am okay 6% as the last little bit is always the hardest.
