Another very bouncy week day to day. And another big drop. I did work on water a bit more this week to try and have some more as well as fruit. The other factor I think kicking in is the new commute. I’m getting a nice 15 minute/0.8 mile walk each way in (not recorded in Lose It! either). It’s a reasonable pace and I think I’m getting two nice little metabolism jolts at different times of the day in addition to regularly scheduled exercise.
50 pound mark is close. And 215 is not far either!
Off to the gym!
Rough week on the push-ups. Doing well on the crunches. Not helping that I am very active on the Saturdays lately and push-ups at the end of the day with an aching chest, arms and back are not what I am looking to do. Will be repeating Week 4.
Edit – left out I was also using longer rests on Day 3 due to how beat I was in general.
|Set #||Push Ups Target||Push Ups Done||Crunches Target||Cruches Done|
|Day 1 (60 second rest both exercies)|
|Day 2 (60 second rest crunches, 90 push ups)|
|Day 3 (60 second rest crunches, 120 push ups)|
Thanks for all the feedback on the next phase of weight loss. After giving it some thought I am planning to target 13-14 weeks for it. I was initially interested in the 1% bmi/week suggestion, but that works out to just over 2 lbs/week. While I have been achieving that so far, I question the sustainability during the holidays/winter. 1.5 pounds / week works out to about 10.5 weeks while giving me 2.5-3.5 weeks buffer and still a bit over a 1lb / week. The only open item is 13 or 14 and that will be decided by where I end my current phase which does not end until I hit 215 or less. Depending on how close I am to 215 I will adjust. 214 – 215 lbs is 14 weeks. < 214 lbs is 13 weeks.
Enjoy the weekend!
