I have been all over the place this week. Just a messy week, full of basically nothing other than mental exhaustion. Since I am late posting these results, we will just call this my weekly weigh in–even though it was done on Wednesday. Whatever.
This has been a big week that follows the ‘no excuses’ theme to a tee. I have had some serious sleep issues that I can’t really explain, which is ensuring that I work my 9-5 exhausted, followed by the gym, and another lack of sleep night. Somehow I have found energy at the gym, and today is the first day that I have missed my morning cardio, which I will inevitably tag on to my workout tonight. Luckily, I haven’t faltered in my diet at all and I am even finding new ways to make meals feel like cheat meals while sticking in my macros.
I actually got the best gift ever yesterday that will make sure I have no excuses at all to fall off my diet. I got my birthday present a few weeks early, Men’s Health Muscle Chow, which looks like the best book invented for bodybuilders looking to also be foodies, like me. I got it yesterday, and I will be experimenting with it and exploring its many wonders for a long time to come, and I am sure I will write all about it once I have had a chance to really look at it. Long live flavor!
Anyway, to my Weigh In Wednesday results:
This week has followed all of my other weeks, with small changes, that will lead to big changes. Kris Gethin always says that in the beginning of a program, changes are happening underneath that you can’t see, and if you stick it out long enough you will be amazed at what you actually have been building. That is true for me, especially in my last program when all of a sudden, I dropped a few pounds and was shocked to see the difference. This is only week 2, so any changes are appreciated. It shows that I am doing something right. I did my measurements really fast, so some of the numbers don’t really make sense. I will probably re-do them on Sunday.
My weight was at 128 yesterday, and 127.8 on Sunday, and 127 today. At least it is consistently around the same number, and under 130!
My weight dropped at least .8 lbs from last Wednesday, 1.8 lbs today. I did a more intense cardio session, so maybe that can be attributed to my 1lb loss? We will see Sunday.
My body fat percentage went down by 1mm, which to me is huge. This took me from 23.8 to 22.1%.
My chest appears to have gone up half an inch, weird. My thighs also went up by 0.25 inches. My calves went down by 0.5 inches.
I have determined that I will re-do my measurements on Sunday when I have more time to be careful with the tape!
