Report Card 2014.03.29: (I got a C !!!!!)

Saturday, March 29, 2014

Nutrition (0.8): 8 fruits and vegetables per day
Exercise (1.0): Totally killed it this week
Weight (0.0): still above 205.
BodyFat (0.3): Down to 22%!!
Total: (2.1)
Grade: C (grading chart below signature)

**EXERCISE (1.0):
Got all five walks in despite a very tough schedule and poor walking weather. Got all four exercise sessions that I wanted plus the 1 misc work out. Exercise is going really well. The walks are really becoming real exercise as my legs get stronger. Body is remembering kettlebells

Exercise is really going well. have upped the intensity. Hence......

**BODY FAT (0.3):
Let me just say, i don't think that I have ever EVER (note the all caps for emphasis) gone down 2 weeks in a row on this. The intensity and frequency of exercise has made this possible.

Unfortunately, this has come at the expense of....

**WEIGHT (0.0):
I have been holding at a range of 206-209. The eating is still up there. The solution to this will be a change in my goals for....

**EATING (0.8):
The good news is that I ate a round-up average of 8 fruits and vegetables my highest 5 days this week. My weight/health issue, however has been eating the calorie-dense but nutrient weak foods (chocolate, chips, eating out, etc.)

I'm going to take a shot at eating the foods that I did last year that will kill carb/sugar cravings (lost 20 pounds). I did a defacto super-food diet by taking said foods and eating a ton of them (especially early in the day).

For this quarter, those will be the foods that I use for the grade rather than fruits and vegetables (many fruits may actually be a hindrance for what I'm trying to accomplish). This week, Lord willing, I will blog about this portion of the grade going forward.


I'm going to try for another C this week. A C+ is possible, but not likely. I would have to either:
* lose over 4 pounds (done it before but not often)
* up the eating score (maybe. Still gotta figure out the new one)
* lose 1% body fat for a 3rd week in a row
Frankly, I kind of hope to hold at C.

I am a lot healthier than I was 4 weeks ago, but my weight is still higher than I would like. Hopefully the new foods will take care of the later.
