Week Review – 20140105

Overall, my first week went well. High points include:

  • Weight descended from 183.8 down to 181.8 M-Th
  • Abstained from alcohol on all weekdays except one, and limited alcohol to one glass of red wine
  • Managed to lift twice, and learned that the gym at the racquet club that I belong to is mostly empty after 7:30 PM.  Makes January at the gym easier to deal with
  • On a side note, I also talked my 15 year old son to lift with me, and now my 13 year old also wants to go

Low points:

  • Still haven’t figured out how/when to incorporate stretching and body weight exercises into daily routine
  • Sunday turned into a mess. I ran 2 miles in the afternoon, fasted until 5:00 PM, but then binged on alcohol and carbs later that night while watching TV
  • Weight at week end was back up to 183.2, for a net loss of 0.6 lbs. Definitely not the 1.5 lbs I was shooting for

Lessons learned:

  • Must track diet every day for entirety of plan
  • Weekends cannot be a free for all. Must stick to plan as much as possible
  • Fasting for too long in the day can often backfire, resulting in binging
  • Need to solve the riddle of when to do stretching and bodyweight exercises
  • Need to get into ketosis and stay there
