I am back on track
Hello all!

I know that it’s a long time since my last post in the forums! Ariane is pregnant (39 weeks!!!!), I got a research assistantship contract and am doing everything to finish my PhD thesis asap. So, life is quite busy around here :) – though I am aware that this is not an excuse.

I am still doing 3-4 resistance training every week (finished one Ferruggia’s program last week), but stopped doing sprints due to the crap weather. Last year I built considerable amount of muscle and my goal for the next 12 weeks is to get rid of the extra fat that came along. How am I going to achieve my goal? Turbulence Training and Eat Stop Eat! I will start with two fasts a week and with a weekly caloric budget of 13,700 (163 pounds x 12 x 7).

I am committed to log my food on My Fitness Pal at least 80% of the days during the contest, so it gives me roughly 70 days. My best results came when I logged my food and posted it in the forum, so I know it works and, more important, I know I can do it.

@Craig, I did not read the rules for the pro category, so I do not know whether I am eligible to any prize. I’m not doing this for money, but if I’m not eligible, please tell me only after 12 weeks :)

Today I started TT Meatheads 5 x 5 (May 2013) but am yet to decide what will come next.

My current numbers are as follow:

Height: 5’6.5” (goal 6ft LOL :) )
Weight: 163 pounds
Waist: 32.9 inches (goal 30 inches)
Right arm (flexed): 15.4 inches
Chest: 38.2 inches
Shoulder: 45.7 inches
Right thigh: 23.6 inches

All the best to all TT family. May 2015 be the best year of our lives!!

yes congrats on the little one 39 weeks... It's happening very soon!

Thank you, mogarry and shawnss

Yep! The due date is Jan 12, but he can come anytime :)

His name will be José Gilmar, like Ariane's father who passed away last June.

I know that my routine will change a lot soon, but I'm confident that I will manage. And I set an additional goal to my transformation: submit my thesis in the next 12 weeks! Will post my plan soon :)

Hi Peter! Thank you for dropping by!

I took a look at your thread and I am happy to see how you (and many others CTT) are evolving pretty fast!

Getting there mate. Xmas slowed things down considerably but just working on an action plan for the year ahead right now.

I've just finished TT Bodybuilding as was thinking about revisiting 5x5 myself. Hmmm.

I ran off track in the last contest. Too much going on and I gave myself permission to slack off which annoyed me a bit.

Might enter this one. Not sure yet. Couple of days to decide :)

Hi Eduardo! Welcome back and congratulations on the soon to be baby and soon to be PhD! One of the things that I first liked about the TT community was how many smart people there are here! I'm going to be using ESE also. It is the easiest thing I've ever used to take off the weight.
