Report Card 2014.03.22: (C-)

Saturday, March 22, 2014

Almost got a C this week.

Nutrition (0.7): 7 fruits and vegetables per day
Exercise (0.8): 5 walks, 1 Heavy Bag, 1 Pilates, 1 Misc
Weight (0.0): still above 205.
BodyFat (0.2): Finally hit 23%!!
Total: (1.7)
Grade: C-

When I originally set up the exercise potion of my grading system it involved basically this:
*0.1 points for up to 5 walks (0.5 total)
*0.1 point for 1 heavy bag session
*0.1 point for 1 Pilates class
*0.1 point for 1 Kettlebell workout
*0.1 point for 1 session on the spin bike
*0.1 point for 1 an exercise session of my choice
Last week I counted a weight session as an entity in and of itself rather than a misc session. The grade would have still been a C-, just a 1.5 instead of a 1.6

4 fruits a day pretty much every day. 2 vegetables most days. I average the highest 5 days count.

This week I am going to try something totally wacky. When I stir fry vegetables with a serving of meat, I am going to use 3/4 cups per. That way when I only have "2" vegetables, it will be 3 servings.

I will get a C next week, consarn it (pardon my language)

My midweek had me really close to going below 205. I am going to make this the week. I am going to eat the foods that kickstarted my weight loss last year. Try to eat mostly real foods (non-processed/pre-packaged). We'll see.

Assuming I maintain my levels in all other areas, a 0.1 gain will put me in the C range (see table below)

Down to 23%!!! Who Hoooo!!!. I'm happy about this. I have sacrificed the kettlebells and spinning because my lower back and hips have been in very intense pain these past few weeks. They have been replaced by some pretty heavy weight workouts.

I've had a few midweeks that coughed up 23%, but never on Saturday morning. extra 0.1 point earned!

Hopefully I will dip below 205, average 8 FVs and get all desired exercise in.

A C+ is probably totally out of the question (unless I lose a mad amount of weight and drop another 1% BF). A C though is very attainable. I'm doing wayyyyyyyy better than my first week

All that said, I am definitely leaner and healthier than 4 weeks ago, even if the numbers aren't representing that.

Wish me luck!
