RE: Trying a reset
That is fabulous for your first week on a cut! Slow and steady progress is much more likely to "stick". Keep it up!

RE: Trying a reset
A question I have. When you are doing a cut, do you eat back any of the estimated calorie burn from your workouts?

RE: Trying a reset
The short answer is "no". When you figured out your TDEE all of your exercise was factored in to that number. The same thing holds true for the cut. You are just eating at a percentage cut off of that TDEE figure. So, again all of your exercise is already factored into that.

RE: Trying a reset
Well I weighed in on Sunday and am down 2.2lbs (that is over two weeks since I didn't record the week before as I had gone up a pound). Fingers crossed if I can continue I will get to my goal weight before the end of this cut.

I also bought a new toy, a fitbit charge hr. Not sure how it will affect my workouts really but it's fun (expensive fun though!).

I have been increasing the amount of times I'm using the yellow 16kg bells in kettlebell which is exciting. Might try using purple for some swings and jerks (20kg). We'll see how strong I feel tomorrow night!

RE: Trying a reset
Something interesting I've noticed with the fitbit is my estimated TDEE has been 2000-2400 per day depending on activity and I think it wI'll probably average out to sind 2200 post day. Which is what my 2 months of increasing ended at, the number I figured my TDEE to be. Yet most of the on line calculators were bigger consisering my walking to/from work, work outs and dealing with the kids. Makes me wonder if the fact that I have been pre menopausal for close to 4 years has a bigger impact on metabolism than the online calculators can account for. You put in your age and gender but no accounting for hormonal placement. Just thought it was interesting.

RE: Trying a reset
Very interesting... We definitely burn less as we age which is just another reason strength training is so important. We have to work hard to at least maintain our lean muscle mass both for strength and to keep our metabolisms healthy. It gets harder and harder as time passes.
