The December Lull
The end of November and early December have not been conducive to sticking to a healthy lifestyle. There have been a lot of parties and social functions. That with the changing of the weather, I have not been exercising as much, and I have spent more time watching football. Less exercise and more to eat is a dangerous combination, and it usually results in weight gain for me but this time is a little different because I have built up a bit more muscle and my metabolism significantly higher than the last two years.
My weight has been between 197-201 pounds which is still down from October, but my body fat has also dropped from 20.5% to 19.9%. My diet and nutrition have been at about 1800-2200 calories per day. I also still try to get 30 minutes of exercise 4-5 days a week and 10000 steps 4-5 days a week. This year with all luck, there will be no Newe Year’s resolution. I will not need to go on a diet for the April PT test.
On 20 December, I have a metabolic test being performed by the wellness center to determine my actual BMR. I will post the results on the blog.
