It’s been exactly 1 week since the start of 2016.
And I’ve seen a lot of people starting to work on those New Years resolutions.
As I said in a previous post, I don’t make weight loss New Years resolutions. They don’t get me to my goals. Instead I like to make performance based goals to help me reach fat loss, if that is what is needed.
Over Christmas and New Years I decided I was not going to let myself go and eat whatever I wanted but I was also not going to deny myself things I wanted. Such as cookies, candy, etc. I only gained 3 pounds, and I’m willing to bet, it’s mostly water weight.
I’m not as lean (aka a little “soft”) in the ab area as about 1 month ago, but overall I am happy how controlled I was over the holidays. I am a sugar addict, if there is a cookie or piece of candy in front of me, I eat it. And my clothes fit the same, so the 3 pounds and “softness”, not worried. And do you see those guns!?!? 😉
So now onto my new goal.
I will be working on my performance goal.
My goal is to be able to compete with the 16kg Kettlebell in Snatch for 10 minutes. (I’ll be posting some of my training for those who don’t know what this is)
I have never competed with the 16kg, so this will be a great goal to works towards.
The one thing I’m not going to worry about is my weight. Like I had said in my previous post about resolutions, the fat loss will be a byproduct of hitting my goal. I know with my training and nutrition, fat loss will happen.
I will be posting updates of not only my training but pictures like the one above to show that you can have fat loss even if that is not your main goal.
