Friday has arrived, and you know what that means: weekly weigh in. The seventh week since I’ve been tracking the number and posting it here for all to see.
But, before we get to the number lets talk about my goals last week, and what I did this week in order to end up with the number I did.
Last Weeks Goal: Last week my goal was to hit the gym at least three days a week, which meant waking up and going at 5 AM–a full hour and ten minutes before I had to be up. This was the same goal I had failed the week before as well.
Result: I wasn’t able to make it happen yet again. As much as I want to get up and get the work out done, I just don’t know at this point that it is realistic. I’m probably going to have to make time to do it in the evening, even though I would much rather be done by the time I get home.
This Week’s Goal: I’m going to change tactics on working out and attempt to do things later in the day. We will see how that goes.
So now what everyone is here for: what did the scale say?
It is embarrassing to say that I ate absolutely terrible this week. The funny thing is, I probably would have thought previously I was doing a great job. However, with my new nutritional goals I was going over calories 4 out of 7 days this week. So I knew I was going to gain weight, and I also knew I wasn’t going to let it derail me.
- Beginning Weight: 335 pounds / 58% Body Fat
- Previous 8/10: 314.2 pounds / 52.8% Body Fat
- Current 8/17: 310 pounds / 49.3% Body Fat
Weight Loss This Week: 4.2 Lbs / 3.5% Body Fat
Total Weight Loss: 25 Lbs / 8.7% Body Fat
Mathematically and biologically this week’s weight loss doesn’t seem to make any sense, but I’m going to take it. I was truly surprised to see the scale say I had dropped 4 pounds, and I checked it like 6 times. I even had my wife weigh to verify her weight hadn’t mysteriously dropped by the same amount, and it hadn’t.
I’m not sure why I lost, but hey, I’m not looking a gift horse in the mouth either.
See you next week everyone, and have a wonderful weekend.
