Report Card 2014.03.15: (C-)

Sunday, March 16, 2014

Weight: still above 205 = (0.0)
BodyFat: = 24% = (0.1)
Exercsise (1 Pilates, 1 weight, 1 reg, 5 walks) = (0.8)
Eating = 7 fruits/vegetables average = (0.7)
Total= 1.6 (C-)

Exercise (0.8):
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.

Eating (0.7):
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.

Weight (0.0):
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.

-TD Out!

    Great job eating those fruits and veggies.
    Give yourself a blue star on your chart for switching to Pilates instead of suffering out the kettle balls. recognizing one's needs and willingness to switch to make goals, is very important.

    Its good to see you've made it out of the D's :)

    I have the same problem when I start exercising my appetite jumps up a notch, I'm trying to ignore it and chew gum and drink water instead hopefully tomorow it will be easier !

    NSV's are always good even if your weight hasn't changed. If your grading system works for you that's all that matters. emoticon emoticon
