Week 2 Results

July 30, 2007 at 12:30 am Leave a comment

Weigh and measure day today, end of week 2. And I’m up a pound since last week. But surprise, surprise, my body fat is down. I actually put all the calculations onto a spreadsheet today, so I wouldn’t have to keep doing it by hand. Probably just as well, since I appear to have made a mistake last week. So the good news is that last week, I dropped 2.1% body fat, rather than 1%, and I’ve dropped another 1.3% this week. So altogether, down 3.4% in 2 weeks!

What’s more, I seem to have gained a total of 6lbs lean mass over the 2 weeks. Given the intensity of my workouts this seems rather a lot. Perhaps it has more to do with measurement errors. After all, it is quite difficult getting reproducible skinfold readings, and hubby, who is doing the honours, has no training in this. And his knowledge of anatomy is of the boy-meets-girl variety. Oh well, over a period of 4 months I guess we will see patterns emerging.

Compliance… Oh dear. It’s been dreadful. A combination of poor preparation, illness and bad luck. Although, in fairness to myself, the poor preparation has had more to do with the illness than with lack of determination. So how bad was it? 77%. Definitely not good enough. Two missed meals and five cheats. There were a couple of days where I was sleeping during the day and hence missed feeding opportunities. Not sure if I should count these. I suppose from the point of view of blood sugar stability I probably should, but I’m going to cut myself some slack. And it’s not like I woke up ravenous for carbs and stuffed my face. I got up and had a PN-friendly meal right after.

Exercise was also pretty dreadful. Only managed my weights today, no intervals. Taking my total for the week up to 3 hours 10 minutes. I scheduled my workout for late afternoon as we were having guests over for dinner and I wanted to be able to eat the rice with the healthy Chinese food I was making. But spent so long cleaning the house etc. that I had to cut my workout short to start cooking. Planned to finish it later this evening, but it is now 1.20am and I am going to have to go to bed soon. And after all that, I polished off 4 glasses of wine – it was so good, white merlot. So it counted as a cheat meal anyway. Note to self, do workouts in the morning when you are more likely to get them done. Plus, start the day feeling fabulous, and not a little bit please with myself. Also, try cleaning the house a little more often, perhaps?

‘night all.
