How To Get Ripped Abs Challenge – Day 29
It’s Monday day 29 on my How to Get Ripped Abs challenge and I weighed in so that I could get my week 4 results. I am down 12 pounds and have dropped 2 inches off of my waistline in 28 days. These are amazing results for any plan but I even took a half week off when my family went to a wedding and I ate normal for a few days. I have also had a couple cheat meals of pizza. During the next 8 weeks I need to make sure I’m not cheating and just stick to the plan because eventually the fat loss will slow down but right now I’m losing at the rate of 3 pounds a week which is much faster than my usual 2 pounds per week.
The How to Get Ripped Abs program has me eating so many healthy meals throughout the day so I am never hungry or craving food. It’s amazing that I’ve lost 12 pounds and never felt like I was dieting for a single day. I need to stay on track and keep working out hard and I should continue to see these results.
The workout today was great. I had the entire weekend to rest so I went into the gym fresh and ready to push myself hard. Once again by the end I was practically crawling out and I could have literally wrung my shirt out from sweating so much. The full body exercises and supersets create so much heat from burning so many calories that I get incredibly hot. I’m not using any thermogenic fat burners or ephedra based products either. I’m keeping my supplementation completely natural with a few vitamins, green tea, fish oil, and alpha lipoic acid. I have used the harsh fat burners in the past that were loaded with stims and I have sworn them off for the rest of my life. My body doesn’t seem to have any problem melting fat off quickly without them.
So far How to Get Ripped Abs has been very challenging the first 4 weeks but I can see measurable results that I am very happy with. In the future if I ever needed to rip up and drop 8-10 pounds easily I could probably just do 6 weeks of this and be in great shape. I don’t plan on blowing up ever again either because as I get close to 40 years old I really need to watch the fat around the waistline and I can’t let it accumulate ever again. Once I get rid of it this time around I’m never letting it come back. An extra inch on the waist isn’t bad during a muscle building phase is o.k. but I don’t plan on adding more than that.
The diet stayed right on track today. Ate clean and felt great.
