Weigh-In 07.27.2013: (0-3 iz O-K wi M-E)

Saturday, July 27, 2013

My goodness, I swear that I have a tapeworm inside of me.

The hungries (*) have returned because of the kettlebell exercises. I only worked out three times seriously this week. I made them count though. The muscles are building and they apparently want calories. Like, big-time!

And yes, this is pathetic, but....

I was afraid that despite eating like 10 times my body weight in food everyday, I would only lose like a half of a pound. Midweek weigh-in pointed to that. My official weigh-in apparently had other plans (**).

June 29: 206.0@22 (Weigh-in closest to July 1)
July 06: 206.2@21 (Last Week of Plateau )
July 13: 204.8@23
July 20: 204.2@21

July 27: 203.0@22

- Down 1.2 pounds emoticon
- Down 3.0 pounds this month (including a week of a plateau)
- 3.2 pounds from the 190s
- 8.0 pounds from my goal

203 has been a number that for some reason I've blogged about more than the others. When I was first losing weight, it was the first time I really REALLY noticed how my physical appearance was changing for the good. By contrast, when I was gaining last year, I plateaued there and noticed that my appearance was changing for the worse.

As for now, 2-0-3 iz O-K wi M-E

- TD Out!

(*) When I start hitting the gym more intensely, my appetite goes crazy. I've been through it enough times to know that I won't gain much weight if any.

(**) Most humanize/anthropomorphize their scales. Me? I dare to make the actual weigh-ins themselves my friends/enemies. I'm just awesome that way, I guess :)

    Oh, I'm quite familiar with the Hungries!! emoticon
BodyPump always sends my appetite in over-drive - these heavy barbells won't lift themselves: I need well-fed muscles to do that! emoticon

  Your body is trying to tell you to feed it more proteins and carbs before you workout and after combine protein and healthy carbs to refuel your body! You may need to reassess the amount of calories you are eating as the body becomes more fit, the fat turns to muscle and it burns calories at a higher rate than before!
