tiger newI still weigh myself everyday even though I shouldnt but I cant help it. This morning I weighed in at 236. Which is awesome considering as of last week I was back up to 250. Now I am below where I was when I was sick but it doesn’t make a lick of sense. I was like 243 yesterday which was awesome in of its self. Anyways after months of staying at the same weight I am finally dropping off the weight hope it keeps up.

TigerfiercebabySo it has been a few weeks but I am still alive. I was super sick and lost like 12 lbs then but it wasnt good and I was like the walking dead. Then I went to the states for personal and business reasons. I ate a lot then of stuff I love and gained those 12lbs back to 250lbs. However since I have been back I have been really good about my eating though awful about my exercise and I have dropped 5lbs bringing me back to 245. If I can keep this going I will be pretty happy. I guess a little shock to the system got the body out of store mode and into cutting mode. Progress is at least healthy progress at this point.

TigerfiercebabyI got pretty sick this weekend and I am pretty sure I am still sick. Totally a situation of over indulgence and poor upkeep of my body. Though I subscribe to the philosophy of everything in moderation I am actually an all or nothing kind of guy. So in the spirit of Dragon Con (which I was not at) I drank too much, stayed up too late and perhaps got a little debaucherous. Well I did that for a couple days straight and by Sunday my body said FUCK YOU. So I was hit with fever, chills, headache, sore throat. I thankfully have some awesome guests who helped take care of me but damn if I was not a miserable sack of waste this weekend. Still the weigh in comes at 249lbs and 33.1% Body Fat. This week I am going to be ultra strict on the diet and see if I get any payback.

TigerfiercebabyThis week we still hover around 250 actually 251 with 32,8% body fat, I have hit my 10k steps and 5 miles everyday this week. I have made it to the gym a little less often but been really appreciating the rest days, I have started to feel that soreness again a little during those rest days. Weights keeping going up so that is good. If weights arent going up I get reps up. Weather is getting nice so I might add in swimming again for the off days. Food is still protein shakes and whole meals for dinner. Did a little more calories this weekend but still healthy foods. Water intake still high. Feeling much better since starting on the vitamin supplement. Vitamin B makes you pee neon yellow I learned. That is the weekly update. Thanks for reading.

Stupid tigerBodies are complex little chemistry sets. You feed them the right chemicals and they produce wondrous results. Supposedly there is like a manual for this stuff that works and doesn’t work. When I did a paleo diet 3 years ago over the course of 10 months I lost 60lbs. Granted I didn’t start weighing myself actively until 5 months in. So maybe just maybe it took a while for my body to start losing weight like it is now. However you would think working on a deficit of calories for 2 weeks would show some weight loss. Yes muscle weighs blah blah. I didn’t do any weight training the last time. I also didn’t start walking 10k steps until a few months in last time too. Maybe my body needs more time to adjust to the new caloric intake and in a couple more weeks I will see it all fall away but damn it would be encouraging when doing the numbers if this worked out. Activity is higher than usual, what I eat is way less than I was before but I am consistently seeing myself at 250. Physical changes are slightly better but I think my body is just stupid. Still plugging away but want to see some numbers change sooner than later.

Healthy TigerMissed the weekly update yesterday because I was traveling for work. Let be said my scale says I am back to 250lbs and 30% body fat. I did a serious calculation on my eating out breakfast I love and that meal alone puts me over on my calories for the day so I am casting it out. Since doing the one meal diet I realize I dont need to eat as much as I used to. When I do I feel awful. So that is good. I started taking vitamins this weekend too. An active male vitamin and supplement. I think it is going well and if anything it makes my pee super gold. Like Leprechauns might be hanging out near my toilet as their pot of gold. One step closer to a better today.

fat tigerToday I feel like a fat tiger because the stupid scale said 249 after yesterday it said 243. However I believe the scale is possessed. It also said today I was down to 30% Fat which is great. Well not great but brings my BMI close to not being Obese which is my real goal. I hit not obese 2 years ago around this time and would like to get back to that. I have a feeling I am moving in the right direction regardless of what my weight is telling me. Stupid scale. This one meal a day thing is pretty good. I feel more alert, have more energy and the general roughness earlier in the week has gone away. I do occasionally want to want to hunt down a cow and eat it but I’m sure that will pass too. Another day on the right path.

SamosaI totally had a few samosas for breakfast yesterday and they were glorious. I wish the chilies had been salted but everything cant be perfect. Still cheating a little I was able to keep my calories under. I think what I like about the one meal a day theory is the protein shakes have a locked calorie count. Easy to follow. Bam this many calories. So I drink that and drink it again I know how many calories I have had that day. Then for dinner unless I go to a buffet it is pretty hard for me to blow through the rest of my calories for the day. I also feel full. I have energy. Actually my energy the last few days has been great. No mid day coma.

I suppose this is how those premade diet meals are supposed to work as well. I mean for the calories. You have the locked calorie amount and then you don’t worry but those things taste nasty and I also don’t think they exist in India so all for the best. Plus those meals wouldn’t work like the fasting does which I kind of enjoy.

Did I mention I am drinking a ton of water. I am getting in way more water which is awesome. I love water. Its funny I am a creature of habit and like the same things even though I try new things all the time but once I find something I like I tend to always order it. So this habit lets me drink the same drink every day and I never really get tired of it. I think that’s why a lot of people cant stick with it they don’t like the same thing day in and day out. I really don’t mind.

diI think my scale is crazy or needs new batteries. None the less I will take the weight I weighed in at this morning consistently which is 243. It is encouraging to keep at this then.

TigerfiercebabyThis week we are down and up. Weight is down to 247 and BMI is up to 34%. I was feeling sick this weekend so I didnt work out at all and I ate crappy food. Somehow I came out down. I think that it was even though I ate crappy food I didnt eat a lot of it. Anyways new week. Going to do the replacement meals with protein shakes and eat a decent dinner each night. See how that goes. I am guessing I will be grumpy to start the week. Hoping for more sustained progress.

TigerfiercebabyThis week I weighed in at 250 again and BMI went up to 34%. I missed the gym a couple days and steps were abysmal. This week going to get back on track. I did do some cooking this weekend and it was awesome. I cooked some chicken breasts with just coconut oil and spices. My house guests said it was better than the italian dressing ones I do so maybe I will keep it simple. I also did a batch of rumaki which is always a hit. I dont know why liver gets such a bad reputation they are tasty especially wrapped in bacon. I still have a bunch of mutton cubes to cook. I have also been cutting down the protein shake intake. Hope to find a good balance. That is all.
