I took my supplements (Jack3d and Xtend) before I left about 5 AM.
I celebrated The Sacrament with an added bit of indulgence this morning: I bought some dark chocolate to enjoy with my espresso. It was heavenly. =)
For my listening pleasure this morning: We’re Alive, A Story of Survival. It’s a podcast with a full crew, sorta like an old school serial radio drama… about zombies. Very cool. =)
Plan for Week 36. This week went pretty well. Diet-wise I ate what I should eat and nothing more. Exercise-wise I had a great series of initial tests on Tuesday (and Friday) and a solid MCT workout Wednesday. My planned workout for Friday did not happen. Life did, instead.
The Results. Did all of this being good add up to a loss? Did the rebound from last week stop and let me get back to losing weight?
|Week 00: 110101||228.5||29.7||67.9|
|Week 35: 110903||200.4||25.0||50.4|
|Week 36: 110910||203.7||25.5||51.9|
|Δ from last||+3.3||+0.5||+1.5|
|Δ from start||-24.8||-4.2||-16.0|
So I am up again this week. Maybe missing that workout yesterday hurt my numbers. Maybe taking a second Free Day last weekend hurt. Maybe I didn’t sweat as much as I have been during my Saturday morning runs since today was cooler than it has been in a long time. Whatever the cause, the past two weeks have seen me gain back 6.5 pounds, 1.1% BF, and 3.8 pounds BF.
So . . . what to think about all this . . . .
Here’s the deal: I felt great all week. My ring was looser than normal. My pants fit well. My shirts fit well. I felt skinny.
Do I toss all those good feelings because of what the machine said or do I stop trying to use metrics at all and just focus on the nebulous “feelings” without any anchor in objective data?
I’ll delve into this tomorrow. Today IS Free Day and I am going to go enjoy it.
Have a great one, everybody. See you tomorrow. =)
