Another week done and I am feeling good. I am *FINALLY* at the lowest weight I’ve been at in 21+ years! 217 is a milestone for me. Now to shoot for 210.
Had some ups and downs in my eating this week but all-in-all it went really well. Last Tuesday, I managed to eat 2,155 calories – most in a single sitting with my wife having Nachos. Even with that, my average was just under 1,350/day. Only 20/day above what my average should have been.
Every week we do weights and measures as well. I was very happy to see 217.0 on the scale Sunday morning but not as pleased to see a 1/4 inch drop in my shoulders and NO CHANGE in my waist measurement. Feel like I am going backwards. I know it will come, I just need to keep doing what I am doing and practice patience.
Now that I am on a steady bulking circuit (2-3 sets, 13-21 reps, rest period between each set) it is not so cardio intensive. Looking at my heart rate and HR Zones will show this. Monday was almost too easy. Then came Tuesday with a sapper and knocked me on my ass. Thursday and Friday determined not to beat me up so thoroughly and only knocked me around bare fisted style. I will say that as I exercise, my wife is getting more and more distracted from her super circuits. But I can say the same for me getting distracted! :-)
Looking at my AI graph I am having more doubts about hitting 1.5 by the end of this series, which is 7 weeks away. If I continue to lose 2-4 pounds each week, I should hit my weight goals though.
