Our expert says:
Well done!! You have made a huge effort and it is paying off! I am glad that you are loving your new way of life – just keep chipping at it at a pace that suits you, because you will make step-ups as you improve!
Don’t get to focused on your weight – rather aim to get your BMI at around 20% - you will in anyway gain muscle with weight training and that will tip the scale more positive again, thus the aim is to have a lower body fat and more muscle – not so much what you weighs a the end of the process.
Your protein with skimmed milk is excellent for after training!!! And I am not opposed to liquid food (shakes) immediately after training – that is imperative!
I think you might feel burned out because your body is not used to training the way you do – thus it is a good plan to skip Fridays and swim on Saturdays. If you think of how hard Olympic athletes train then we know that the body can do it, however it must be accompanied by the right nutrition – thus if you keep up your good eating habits and make sure it is sufficient for your output you will eventually be able to train harder and longer.
Take care and once again well done!
