Okay, this is my best week in a LONG time. I was able to Drop 3 Pounds and lose a little more chub around the waist:
Weight: 209.2 lbs.
Waist: 39.25 inches
I’m a little perplexed, but I’ll take a week like this anytime. After the previous week’s effort of consuming only about 10% of my usual “surplus food” intake and working out six days, I was a little bit discouraged to say the least that I was UP 0.2 pounds.
So, this time I decided to take it a bit easier on myself. I went back down to exercising 5 days, Monday through Friday. I also increased my treat intake back to a respectable 50% of the previous high.
Result: drop 3 pounds and a 1/4 inch on the waist!
Hypothesis: my body is allergic to high levels of diet and exercise
Anybody else have any ideas? What’s the deal with the lag time on results — if that’s even what’s happening. I’m not sure what’s going on, but this week I’ll probably land somewhere in the middle with treat consumption to play it a bit safe and see where I land next Monday.
