Oh, sure, why not? I'll give it a try. I'm trying to lose some weight, and over the course of the last few weeks, I've lost about three pounds. I'm going to try to get back to class (attended a testing last week), start working the bag, and I've been hitting the weights around two times a week.

My wife and I just went on a 6 mile hike. Fortunately, we live about 10-15 minutes from some decent trails. I try to get out there at least once per week. It sure beats the gym!

Didn't get to work out today. I had a bunch of stuff to do - brought a truckload of 2x4s to my father's house to help him prop tree branches up (that was a workout in and of itself though), bring my daughters swimming at my fathers, etc.

I thought I'd get 30 minutes in with BOB, but I'll survive.

Yeah, I've been helping a coworker strip the stain off his wood siding (with a wire brush.) Talk about work!

One of my summer projects is to paint the porch. I've got a lot of peeling pain that'll have to be scraped. I watched the guy across the street do it to his porch a few weeks ago. That's definitely a workout. I'm not looking forward to that project. I am however looking forward to the finished product.

Friday 7/7
221.2 lbs

How did I gain a pound since last week? I guess the 4th of July ice cream, missing two workouts and the ice cream and big dinner after Six Flags Wednesday did it to me.

Getting ready to spend a half hour with my buddy BOB XL.

I was at 198.9 at the doctor's office. Bought a scale the other day (it's been a month) and it says 191. I'll be visiting the doctor for a followup on Monday, so I'll compare the scale there to the one I have at home to see how I'm doing.

If you're tracking your weight, you have to be consistent with when you're doing it and what you're wearing. The way I do it is right after I go to the bathroom first thing in the morning, wearing nothing. Yes, that'll be the lightest you weigh, but it's not cheating - different clothes weigh different amounts, and the amount you eat and drink will effect it too. Case in point...

3 weeks ago I weighed myself as as said above. I was 223. I went to the doctor at 1:00, and weighed 231. I ate breakfast and lunch in between (lunch was 20 minutes beforehand), drank several glasses of water, was wearing jeans, t-shirt, and shoes, and had my wallet, keys, phone, etc. in my pockets. I obviously didn't gain 7lbs of fat from 8 am to 1 pm. My wife and her mother joined something like weight watchers several years back. Their weight was all over the place because there was no consistency with how they were weighing in; they'd go there and weigh in with a group one day a week at different times wearing different clothes. It's impossible to tell exactly how much weight they truly lost or gained that way.

Even if my scale is off a few pounds, it's consistent. If I lose 20 lbs according to my scale, it's still 20 lbs, regardless of if my scale's a few lbs lighter or heavier than it should be.

10 rounds vs BOB XL. 2 minute rounds, 1 minute rest...

14 minutes peak HR zone
19 minutes cardio HR zone

146 average HR
167 peak HR
510 calories burned

1 cup chocolate milk afterwards (the best recovery drink there is!).

I'll stay at 10 rounds this week, then probably go to 12 next week.

I have been consistent with tracking my weight. Had my followup appointment today, and yeah... 8.5lb weight reduction!
