Weigh-In 10.12.2013: First Main Event Blog

Saturday, October 12, 2013

So this evening, I hit the gym for my first main event workout. I'm working up towards a 40-45 minute kettle-bell routine (gradually replacing my current workout). Each week, adding 1 minute or exercise set. I wasn't sure if I did 1 or 2 exercises last Saturday, so I did 3 this week:
* 15 halos both direction (8 kgs)
* 20 kettlebell swings (12 kgs)
* 15 Goblet Squats (12 kgs)

I will blog about the full version of the workout this week. Next week, I will add 15 bent rows (each side) (10 or 12 kgs)

I don't really enjoy eating out anymore. I do so only (a) when meeting up with friends and (b) Beer and Pizza Friday nights. I met up with a friend Thursday night and we had Indian food. The place we ate at had more salt in its food than I have ever tasted in Indian food. I had a slice of meat lovers pizza on Friday. It had a lot of the saltier Italian meats on it.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I didn't eat out and my midweek had me about a pound away from 195. The official numbers from this morning do not reflect that.

I will dispense with the long list of numbers. I'm too close to my goal at this point. I've lost all but a few of the pounds of my goal.

198.6@21% (up 0.4 pounds from last week)
Again, I believe it to be mostly water retention.

Depending on how much I eat out this week, I may be as low as 196.x next Saturday.

We'll see.

TD Out!

    Fabulous my friend! Keep up the good work! Very reflective! Hey, have you noticed any changes in your taste buds with your sugar under control? I feel like I have noticed some changes in sweet things tasting sweeter, but also in things like bacon - it just doesn't taste the same to me and I'm wondering if you get extra sensitive to salt when the candida is under control? Foods for thought!

    You're doing so sososo grrreat!
    One of my sparkbuds just did a blog entitled
    'Remember when eating out was more fun?'
    or some such.
    Ignorance was bliss, I guess.
    Enjoy the long weekend.
