Week 87: Weigh-in Results
I gave blood last night for the first time and felt tired afterward, so my morning was rushed and prevented me from posting this at its usual time.
September 22 weight: 219 pounds
Weekly Change: 0
Body Fat Percentage: 26%
Weekly Change: -1%
I weighed 219 pounds (last week’s weight), so I didn’t upload a new scale shot.
Remember, I always gain 2-4 pounds over the course of the day. I always post weigh-in numbers from my weight in the morning when I weigh less, so in actuality I probably weighed 216-217 pounds this morning. We’ll never know.
As a consolation prize, I did save up to three lives by giving blood yesterday.
As far as for the rest of this weigh-in and future weigh-in results go, I want to keep you guys and gals informed with what I’m currently doing nutritionally and in the gym every week. So not only can you follow along with my weight loss progress, but also maybe take something from it and use it in yours.
I’ve stuck to 2,100 calories or so the past several days, being much more strict since I started looking forward to my half-marathon. I don’t want to confuse the “plan” I posted with my post on Monday as my half-marathon training. It’s not. I don’t plan on limiting calories, but I actually plan on upping calories closer to my actual race as so many experts suggest.
Diet is in high in protein, not so many carbs, and fewer fats.
I went to the gym on Sunday and did weight lifting (lower body) and also ran a couple of miles. I got shin splints pretty bad as I hadn’t ran in a while, but the pain has since subsided and I’m going to hit the treadmill again tonight. I couldn’t go to the gym last (Tuesday) night as it’s not suggest after donating blood, but Monday I had a great workout working my shoulders and triceps.
I haven’t done much cardio this week due to the pain from Sunday.
In general my typical gym session, last week and any week, lasts for about 45-80 minutes and has a mix of weight lifting and cardio. I do 5-10 minutes warming up, 30-45 minutes lifting, followed by 10-30 minutes on cardio.
It just depends on how much time I have and how I feel.
That’s my weekly update. Now, give me your update in the comments below.
