Progress report: 26 February 2018

Progress reportProgress report

Two days into the Zero Sugar Diet.  

This prior weekend, I did not stick to my diet.  I have a lot of work to do in the next 6-7 weeks.  Yesterday, a craving hit for chocolate, and I ate 4-5 servings of chocolate covered almonds.  That is one energy-dense food, and I am sure you know the rest.  

My military height weight week is about 6 weeks from today, and I take my PT (Physical fitness) test following week.  I will make weight easily by tape, but I would prefer to not need the tape.  I am allowed 214 pounds as long as they measure my height at 74-75 inches, and I weighed 211.8 pounds yesterday morning.  The physical fitness test will be a breeze.  

I move this summer and my goal is to get back to 195 pounds before I move on 1 June.

My Weight on 26 February 2018

Plan for the next two weeks:  

  • Exercise: 3-5 times a week.  Cardio 5 times a week with push-ups and sit-ups 3 x a week.  
  • Nutrition: 1500-1700 calories a day with 35% protein and 35 grams of fiber.  
  • Weight: Lose 2 pounds lost or 209 pounds in 2 weeks.
  • Body Fat: I am currently 23.5% or so.  I would like to get down to 22%.  I think 1/2% is realistic for two weeks.  
  • Vinegar: Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
  • Cinnamon: Add 1000 mg of cinnamon to my diet.  

Changes I am considering: 

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