Total= 1.6 (C-)
My core has been weak and kettlebell workouts have hurt. I've turned to Pilates for help with that and it's paying off. Didn't get a heavy bag or spin session this week.
Steady tacking. 4 fruits almost every day and 2 vegetables.
Body Fat (0.1):
It's not reflecting how I look and feel at this point. Between some pretty hardcore upper and lower body weight workouts. I thought that I would be down to 23%, especially with relatively little weight loss. It will come.
Still above 205 (207.0). I've blogged about this before. When I start exercising, I start building muscle. My metabolism and appetite go through the roof. Even if I were to eat a reasonable amount of calories, there is little or no weight loss.
Plus I had dinner out with a friend Friday night. I ate low calorie, but high salt. I'm not sure that I would have made it below 205 if I hadn't, but I know that I am closer than 2 pounds away.
What I call "*Boom* Week" is the week when the muscle kind of stops building in such great strides, the appetite goes down and the metabolism stays strong. I lose 3-4 pounds on that week. I think that will happen either next week or the week after.
Total (1.2) C-
I am actually seeing some good changes. Size 38" jeans fit a lot better than before I started grading. I'm actually hitting my stride on the cardio machines. Better energy in general.
I feel that I definitely feel like I earned my C- this week!
Say what one will about my grading system, this week is tied for best week so far and for good reason. A C will be tight for next week, but I will go for it (Grading Chart Below).
Boom Week will definitely get me there. Otherwise, I will shoot for 10 exercise sessions and 8 FVs.
