Progress report: 16 July 2018: Day 1 of 90 – Again

Progress reportProgress report

A few steps forward and a step back.  

Two weeks ago, I made a pledge to be more healthy.  My family agreed to help.  I darted into the week with a new found energy and determination to be successful.   Unfortunately, one to two days and again I whiffed.  Now I back to the drawing board.  Today is a new day.  I am going to try something different this time.  

I have tied portion control, which worked in the past but seems to not work anymore.  I am going to adjust my plans slightly.  Two weeks ago, the plan was to eat a higher protein diet with fiber added every day.  I am going to adjust this to 5 days on with two days healthier portion control.  

Update and Plan for next 2 weeks:  

  • Exercise: 3 times a week.  Cardio 3 times a week.  I will add pushups in two weeks.    
  • Nutrition: 1500 calories a day with 40% protein and 30 grams of fiber.  
  • Weight: I currently weigh 219 pounds.  That is down 6 pounds.  My goal is to lose 4 pounds in the next two weeks or 215 pounds in 2 weeks.
  • Body Fat: I am currently 25.6% or so.  I would like to get down to 23% in two weeks.  

I will see you again in 2 weeks.  Hopefully, we will see improvement.
