Weigh In 12/10/2018   Leave a comment

Time for the weekly weigh in.  Good news this week.  As you know I actually gained a pound last week during the weigh in, and for the monthly update no less.  This week I’m happy to report that I’ve bounced back.  Last week I weighed in at 272.2 pounds.  This week I weighed in at 269.6 pounds.  So I not only lost the pound I gained last week, I lost an additional 1.6 pounds on top of that.  Sweet.  On top of that I’ve breached 270 pounds which means I’m either at, or very near, what I used to weigh in high school.

For muscle mass I was 27.7% last week and 27.9% this week.  In terms of pounds that’s 75.4 pounds last week, and 75.2 pounds this week.  Lost a little muscle possibly, but at .2 pounds that could be a measuring error.  Not too worried about it, although I’d be happier if it were definitively climbing.

For body fat I was 36.4% last week and 36.1% this week.  In terms of pounds that’s 99.1 pounds last week and 97.3 this week.  So 1.8 pounds of fat lost.  Between that and the muscle loss that still leaves about .6 pounds of weight to account for which I would assume is water weight.

So exactly three weeks from today will be December 31st.  Last day of the year and last weigh in of the year.  If I lose another 7 pounds between then and now I’ll have lost 90 pounds on the nose for the year.  7.5 pounds a month on average.  I’d be very happy with that goal.  To have lost a full 100 pounds this year I’d have to lose 17 pounds, which I don’t see happening.

Not a lot of change in my meditation or exercise routines this week other than small incremental increases.  Same with mood and mindset.  Just a little better than last week, nothing major to report.

When it comes to finances I have to admit I’ve slipped a little.  I purchased an LED salt lamp I didn’t need, I just wanted.  I justified it by telling myself that it was for creating a better ambience in the room while I meditated.  The reality is that I don’t need to create ambience, especially since I meditate with the eyes closed most of the time.  Other then that I’ve done well with spending and getting debt paid off.

YouTube is going pretty well.  Nearly at 200 views.  Excited about that.  And I’ve begun recording an extra video on Wednesday’s to put up later in the week.  Starting with the new year I’d like to make a goal of getting at least two videos up a week.  I think that by doing so my views will go up a little quicker which brings me that much closer to being monetized, which is a big goal of the channel.  The primary being to put out videos that reach people and help people.  I’d like to spend more of my time doing that and that’s why I want to monetize.  If I could make a living off of it I could devote myself full-time to it.

The book has been revised a bit, but I should be putting in a bit more time on it.  With the end of the year three weeks away I’m working under the assumption that it won’t be out for sale by end of 2018.  But it still should be out early 2019.  We’ll see how it goes.

That wraps up this weeks update.  Let me know what you think.  The final goal I’ll mention this week is doing better about getting a post up every day here.  It may just be to get a quick thought up, but I’d like something every day.  So to that end I’ll wish you a good day and plan on seeing you tomorrow.  Later.
