Week 4 Results

August 14, 2007 at 10:12 pm Leave a comment

Well, dropped nearly 3 and a half pounds from last week’s high of 214.6, taking me to 211.2. I’ve given up on the calipers as a decent means of measuring body fat – it’s just too hard to get consistent results. My top-of-the-range Tanita scales are quite consistent, so I’m going to be posting those results from now on. And this is how they look so far:

Start: 214 lbs, 47% body fat, 113 lbs lean body mass
Week 4: 211.2 lbs, 44.1% body fat, 118 lbs lean body mass

This kind of makes up for me having lost only 3 lbs in a month. I know it means I’ve gained 5 lbs muscle and actually lost 8 lbs of fat, but I’m a girl. And a fat girl. I wanna see the numbers go down!!!! And I know it’s not about what it says on the scales, or it shouldn’t be. But I’ve been so good. My lifestyle is so different now, after just a month, and I really like it, but I wish I were wearing a smaller size. Hubby and I are just shopping for a trip we have coming up, and I can’t get the gear I want in my size. It’s very depressing. Big people need high-tech clothing too, you know!

Actually, although I haven’t posted my 1-month pics, since there’s not much more to see than there was at the start, if you stand on one leg, tilt your head 30° to the right and stick your tongue out, you may begin to think that just possibly, perhaps, there might be a bit less cellulite on the tops of my thighs… maybe a bit tighter there too… and perhaps the angle of my tummy fat is a little shallower? Well, you’ll just have to wait another month to see. I’ll post halfway pics (for the PN challenge) even if there isn’t much to see.

As for exercise, it was a good week. Did my first week of the Intermediate Level Turbulence Training. Making progress with the intensity of my cardio intervals, and added an extra interval session in this week, for a total of 4. In all, did 5.5 hours of exercise this week:

  • 3 x Turbulence Training workouts for a total of 2 hrs 20 mins
  • 1 extra high-intensity interval training session for 25 minutes
  • 2 hrs 15 minutes steady-state cardio (walking, turbo trainer, elliptical)
  • 30 minutes standing pilates

My goal for the next week is to add 2 intervals to each of my HIIT sessions, do at least one extra pilates workout and take my total exercise up by one hour to 6.5 hours. My nutrition goal is to maintain 90% compliance with the PN eating plan, not miss any feeds this week (missed 2 last week), and remember to take all my supplements.
