For the next 10 weeks, my mission is to look as fabulous as possible!
Calories in: ~1300c. Meal plans will be ~1200 for some wiggle room.
Calories out: Work days, 2500-2800 calories. Non-work days, 2000-2300 calories.
Work days: Just PT exercises and stretching when needed.
Non-work days: 1-2 hours of low intensity steady state cardio whenever possible. If feeling too weak, just rest.
Expected weight loss calculations:
Calories eaten each week: 1300 x 7 = 9100
Minimum calories burnt per week: (2500 x 5) + (2000 x 2) = 16500
16500 calories - 9100 calories eaten = 7400 caloric deficit
9100 calories / 3500 calories per lb = 2.1 lbs per week
Maximum calories burnt per week: (2800 x 5) + (2300 x 2) = 18600
18600 calories - 9100 calories eaten = 9500 caloric deficit
9500 calories / 3500 calories per lb = 2.7 lbs per week
Over the course of 10 weeks, I should lose 21 - 27 lbs.
This is a sprint to the finish line, not a journey. This is bootcamp. This is not for a physique competition - this is just to get as small as possible so I can hopefully feel comfortable in my own skin for the trip.
