05/28/18 Weigh in, sorry it’s a little late   Leave a comment

So I’ve been a little busy the last two days and didn’t realize I had skipped the update on my progress.  For that I apologize.  Keeping accountable on here is important to me and I shouldn’t be allowing it to get lost in the rush.

As expected this week was actually a gain in weight.  The Wednesday before was my monthly day off from keto so I knew I would be heavier this weigh in.  I had seriously considered cancelling or putting off this month’s day off because I had just gotten back under 300 for the first time in who knows how long last weigh in and didn’t feel like immediately going back over.  In the end I decided that not doing the day off for that reason would go against what I’ve said all along, which is don’t focus on one number, focus on the whole journey.  So what if I went over again because past experience with my days off show me that I’ll lose it right back.  So why deny myself the plan I set because of one silly number, 300.  Which is a great movie by the way if you haven’t seen it.

When I did my weigh in Monday morning my faith in my game plan was rewarded.  On previous days off I put on an average of 3 pounds each time.  On this one I only gained a pound.  So I weighed in at 300.2 lbs and 41.8% body fat.  So I only went up .3% body fat.  I  gain a little more then a pound of body fat if you run the numbers, so I had to lose a little water or muscle to account for the difference.  As it was less then half a pound I’m ok with that because that difference could be accounted for by the slight inaccuracies of weighing in.  Which is another good reason not to get caught up with the numbers of a single weigh in.

I think that the reason I only put on one more pound this time around is because I’ve been doing a lot better with my exercise.  I invested in one of those plastic aerobic steps with the adjustable height.  The one I got has a 300 lb limit so I realize I am technically over it.  Since I know I’ll be below 300 lbs soon I think it can take the extra .2 lbs for a week.  It was a $45 investment, mainly because it’s designed to be extra sturdy.  The best part is there is now no excuse for not working out.  Can’t say I didn’t get to the gym, because the step is right here in my bedroom.  Can’t say I couldn’t because it’s raining outside because I have a good roof over my head.  Can’t say I don’t want to disturb my family because I can do this in the privacy of my room.  So no more excuses.  I’m only on the 3rd day of my tracking week and I’ve already gotten 5 workouts in totaling 1 hour 7 minutes.  So I’m thinking the weigh in this upcoming Monday is going to be great.  Until then take care and be happy.
