Exercise for a week

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

I'm feeling somewhat proud. I have exercised with a combination of cardio and sculpting workouts for a full week.
I have walked 30 min a day for 5 of the days, plus playing basketball with my kids outside and softball as well.

I've done the videos for the Boot Camp with weights, upper and lower body.

What amazes me is I still am not losing any weight. Only one day in 7 did I "mess up" - i.e., I ate about 2,100 calories instead of the 1200 - 1500 I should.

I started the week at 173 lbs - I am now at 174.6. My weight makes no freakin' sense. How can one day of messing up cause a weight gain when I'm doing everything else right. Come on, Body - have a little mercy on me.

    Do you use the SP tracker? If you make it public team members can look it over and make some suggestions.

    On low carb you may be too low on calories at the 1200-1500 range. If you're at 50 g of carbs or less per day you might be better off at about 1800, particularly if you're working out a lot. Higher than 50 g and you might just end up maintaining instead of losing, no matter how much you exercise. Weight loss is 80% about nutrition.

    I started at 226 (5' 7") and lost about a pound a week for 6 months on 2000 calories, no exercise, and 4 light beers a night (lol! still working on that) as long as my total carbs were 20-40 grams a day.

    Also, beware the "stall" foods: peanuts, dairy, sweeteners, and "hidden carbs" (gotta read every single ingredient to find the hidden sugar and starch). Eating whole foods is the best way to dodge that last one.
