Day 151-2 (T, 120529) — Sub-200!

A Good Week.  I was semi-good last week, having a Free Meal Sunday evening for my son’s third birthday and then again Thursday evening with my brother and his family in town at my niece’s graduation celebration dinner. Even so, I was down this week, sub-200 for the first time since the end of last August.

Date Weight BF% BF #
Δ from start -29.7 -4.2 -19.3
Δ from Last -3 +0.3 -2.2
Week 22-2: 120528 198.8 25.50 48.60
Week 21-2: 120521 201.8 25.2 50.8
Week 20-2: 120512 203.0 25.3 51.3
Week 19-2: 120505 200.3 24.8 49.6

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (the latter two will count against next week) were all higher-than-normal calorie counts but for once these were not caused by cheating.   I ate good low-carb fare but I ate a full three meals each day with no fasting.

It’ll be interesting to see how that affects next week’s weigh-in.

BTW, if you didn’t see the scones recipe I tried this weekend, check it out.  Good stuff!

Last week I noted that I needed to “get my protein and fat higher and my carbs lower.”  Two out of three ain’t bad, right?

My net carbs (carbs – fiber) were 31 or less every day except when I had my Free Meals.  That is what really helped me post a lower number this week despite the cake, ice cream, and pizza on Sunday and the queso and margaritas on Thursday.

I am happy that I was able to stay low-carb this weekend (and Memorial Day) despite the presence of doughnuts, cinnamon rolls, candy, etc.

=====

Goals for This Week.  They will be tough to meet given Sunday and Monday’s higher-then-normal calorie count, but, since I still ate low-carb foods, I hope it will work out.

  • Overall calories stay at or below 1600
  • Overall net carbs are below 30 (total carbs at 50 or less, fiber at 15+)
  • Overall fat is about 120
  • Overall protein is about 90

=====

What’s On Deck.  This week I  don’t have anything special planned so I expect that, from Tuesday on, I’ll be able to control things pretty well.

The only exceptions to what would otherwise a perfectly-planned week will be that I may not be able to play Ultimate Saturday morning and I’ll be driving a fair bit that day, probably covering breakfast and lunch.  If I can fast, or only drink coffee/eat some sunflower seeds, I hope it will end up a good day as well.
