Friday, June 08, 2012

emoticon The Beginning
Week ONE

June 1st - Weigh-in and take all measurements with tape measure and body fat % tool (should be arriving at my doorstep today). Probably headed out of town this night to head up to M'town for the wedding and to meet with my mom. -- (Food) 3279 (Workout) None

(Food) 2608
(Workout) 0
Net = 2608

2nd - Will be either traveling there and back or just traveling back after being at Mom's resort. There is pool access and MIGHT be access to a gym. If not, there are always roads to walk/run, although my foot hurts today and I won't want to stress it with a run if it doesn't feel good this weekend. (Food) 3279 (Workout) Swim or Run or Something

(Food) 3003
(Workout) 574 calorie lap swim at resort's fitness center lap pool
Net = 2429

3rd - No clue if I have to work at Kroger. Need to cook, clean, do groceries and coupon. (Food) 2821 (Workout) None

(Food) 2098
(Workout) 0
Net = 2098

4th - Back to work! And the gym (if needed). (Food) 1789 (Workout) ST (30m)

(Food) 2671
(Workout) 0
Net = 2671

* A little bummed I didn't do my ST routine, but I did use my lunch break to go grocery shopping for my lunches for the week which turned out to be a GREAT idea as my work food consumption was pretty good.

5th - (Food) 1789 (Workout) 6am Lap Swim (2 laps, rest for 12 breaths x 10 = 400 yards)

(Food) 2967
(Workout) 492 calorie lap swim at the pool (I've progressed more than I expected)
Net = 2475

6th - (Food) 1789 (Workout) ST (30m)

(Food) 2540
(Workout) 170 calories from 24 minutes of ST on lunch break
Net = 2370

7th - (Food) 1789 (Workout) 6am Lap Swim (2 laps, rest for 12 x 10 = 400)

(Food) 2847
(Workout) 410 calorie lap swim (again, progressed more than expected)
Net = 2437

Weight on June 1st: 309.8
Weight on June 8th: 307.2
Body Fat % on June 1st: 47.1%
Body Fat % on June 8th: 47.3%

Average net calories for the week = 2441

Okay, so I guess I didn't do quite as bad as I had thought all week. Of course many of these are best guess estimates, but still...my TDEE is supposed to be around 3300, my BMR around 2140, so I ate in between that on average every week, which is what I'm supposed to be doing.

So I'm going to try to stick to that number through the week. 2440 is a good number...let's see if it's MY number for weight loss right now.

I know my body fat % went up .2%, but I measured at a different time last week, so I'm not too awful worried about that.

A note on my weekly workouts -
I LOVE swimming and I'm so glad I finally have a place to do laps. Hoping I get some alone time in the hotel pool next week so I can keep it up. Only one ST session and three swims this week, but my body is SORE SORE SORE - especially in the legs, abs, and shoulders/chest area, which is probably a credit both to the ST AND the swimming I'm doing.

The plan for next week -
Keep it up! Try to average 2440 for each day in the week. Try not to be so hard on myself. Really enjoy my time and if I eat a little more, I know I have time to workout a little more as I will have a LOT of time to myself this week.
