Progress Report: 17 November 2016
I am now almost 4 months into my new path to health. I have been scaling back my exercise and I am now only down about 250-500 calories per day which should result in 1/2 to 1 pounds of weight loss per week. I am down almost 38 pounds in 6 months. I have lost nearly 10% body fat and 7 inches off my waist.
I have decided to visit the wellness center and get a metabolic test done to figure out my exact BMR and body fat percentage. This will allow my to individualize my diet and exercise program to maximize my readiness.
I am adding more protein to my diet. I have been averaging about 20-30% protein intake. I wanted to eat more, but I have missed a few meals and that leads to crazing. I am adding 10-15% more protein in the form of beef and chicken.
I am decreasing my exercise. I now exercise 5 days a week and 30-60 minutes. I have started running and have had two good runs in the past 2 weeks. I hope to start adding resistance training this weekend.
