4 Week Mini Cut- Week 1 Recap

Week 1 is officially done! Let’s see what’s changed!

This first week was definitely the learning curve. I haven’t counted calories and macros in 6+ months so it was odd at first! But, I got back into the swing of planning meals beforehand and eating mostly at home. Here’s my progress and where to go from here!

Week 1 Ending Stats:

weight –  149.8 lbs

waist – 29.75″

thigh (r) – 24″

Any changes?

3.2 lbs drop in weight. A little bit of that could be from my weight fluctuating high on my initial weigh in + the 1.2 lbs I expected to lose. 0.25″ loss in waist and right thigh! Wohoo! Good week 1, now to refocus!

Struggles + Wins

First few days went really well. I was surprised at how much I could eat while staying on track. Eating Thursday wasn’t as good as I would have liked in terms of meal frequency. I ate a lot of my meals between 11am and 3pm due to stress and boredom because I was in class 12-6. I didn’t eat more than maintenance however. Friday I woke up feeling back on track. As far as my workouts went it was a weird week. I had overworked myself during the weekend so I was exhausted. I only did my mini resistance band beach workout Monday and didn’t lift heavy until Wednesday. Saturday is had one vodka soda out and some late night (healthy) food when I got home from the bars. It’s all about balance. Sunday wasn’t the best though. I was exhausted from the night before and had to teach Zumba late night so I carb-loaded. I ate all healthy foods though so not sweating it too much.

Goals for Week 2

  • stick more closely to my macro percentages!!
  • do at least 2 hiit workouts
