Getting Shredded and Losing 10% Body Fat in 9 Weeks (still 3 Weeks Out!)

Ready for some real life stats from the past few weeks of figure competition training? Sure you are! Transformations happen everyday, constantly progressing and changing when consistency is the goal. Keeping diet, nutrition and consistency, my body has responded and I’m only 2.5 weeks out in a 12

There are a few words, a story perhaps, behind this beautiful Kiss & Make-up Salted Chocolate Cake. I love to bake. I’ve said it many, many times before and posted countless baked goods (sometimes-paleo, sometimes not) recipes. And just because I’m on a sugar-less, figure competition

Six short weeks out…

That’s it!

I’m currently six weeks out from my first figure show and could not be more excited! I’ve been working my ass off in the gym, the kitchen, and bed (sleeping, people! Get your mind out of the gutter).

Whatrunslori Figure Prep Before & Afters

In three short weeks, I lowered my body fat by 3% (that’s a percentage a week!). I’ll take it!

This also means that while body fat went down, muscle actually went up! This my friends, is myth’ed to be impossible. I’m super happy with my training, diet and results! Especially since last time I tried this lifestyle, I was miserable and starving my body. 

That’s not to say that I’m not hungry at times, not craving things on occasion, or that I’m not having a few mental breakdowns from time to time… I am. But they are so much more infrequent than I expected this round of prep! I truly believe that the high fat, high protein, low carb way of eating is superior, for me, for figure prep and dieting down.

I promise more info on how to make the most of your diet and workouts and how easily you CAN lose weight. 

Until the next post…
