I am averaging about 1 pound a week of weight loss. I have built some lean mass. I am really happy about that! In the first challenge I lost some lean mass, my guess is it was mostly glycogen and water, but still it looks a bit scary to see that. I am overjoyed that this time around I gained some lean. So my overall weight loss was not as dramatic, but do I care? No, not really.
I am hoping that by keeping the weight loss to 1-2 pounds a week I can allow my skin time to shrink down a bit. It isn't looking so hot with the extra sagging :(
So, the biceps. Maybe they didn't grow because of the body fat loss. Fat puffs things up too. They LOOK better, which is the important part I think. I will keep working on it. I don't need them to be huge, I just want them to get bigger than 11 inches...lol
I had a good workout today. I messed it up since I wanted to do 2 exercises for each target area and forgot a second upper body thing. So, maybe some dips or something tomorrow to make up for it.
