You may have noticed I missed a blog entry. In fact, I missed most of 2 weeks working out and spent most of the time visiting the hospital where my wife spent 8 days fighting a nasty infection. She’s on the mend and will be back to her Venus workouts probably next week while I return to my workouts this week.
I am hoping that the back sliding I am seeing in my stats will be arrested and continue to go back to positive progress. I posted in the Adonis forums last week and so far no one has been able to give me an answer to my question:
OK. It's now been 14 days and I seem to have plateaued. My weight has been 212 +/- 1.5 pounds since Oct 17th. It is now the 31st. According to AGR, my intake should be 1599 calories w/no exercise and 1759 calories with 1/2 hr per day exercise. I've looked at MFP and I've been floating right around 1550 average for the last 14 days.
I just looked at my Fitbit charts and my % Body Fat has been steadily declining. It went from 27.4% down to 26.0%. In the first 7 weeks of Adonis I lost a lot of weight (18 lbs.?) but my % Body Fat went from 27.9% to 27.4%. I've lost more %BF in the last 14 days while my weight did not really budge.
Does anyone have any ideas what might be happening or can anyone explain it?
NOTE: BF% and weight are via a Fitbit Aria Scale. I weigh myself each morning but only use the weight taken on Sunday morning for AGR.
OK. Let’s see what this week brings! I am backing down from roughly 1500 calories/day to 1300 calories/day. Metabolism activate!
