Beginning Weight: 75.1 kg
End Weight: 74.9 kg
Result: lost .2 kg
Workout Completed: 45-minute nonjogging mixed session
Today started at about 75.1 kg. That means I lost virtually no weight overnight. But this may just be because my body is recovering from that gallstone attack. During the attack, I lost a huge amount of weight. Now, my body may just be retaining everything to get my energy back up. I don’t know for sure. I am just guessing that is probably the reason for these strange results the past couple of days.
I did a 45-minute hard mixed workout (no jogging) after rising to 75.5 kg in the afternoon. I only lost .2 kg during that workout. It was .4 kg the last time. So I expected a little more. However, the value of this kind of high-intensity weightlifting/calisthenics exercising is that it is reported to help you burn more fat after the actual workout. There is less weight loss during the session due to less sweating. But it primes your body for weight loss throughout the rest of the day.
This is my second nonjogging workout. I lost .1 kg the first time. So the first session was successful. However, regardless of the weight loss on these days, it is good for my overall health. My abs and upper-body muscles are getting in much better shape. So I really need to incorporate this into my workout lifestyle, anyway. But only time will tell whether it is going to be good or bad for my overall weight maintenance.
My weight is not looking so good today. I am 75.7 kg at 6:45 at night. And I need a little something extra to eat. I suppose a little bit of meat and one piece of bread will give me enough energy until bedtime. That small snack only put me at 75.8 kg. So I am borderline as far as gaining or losing weight or breaking even by morning. It’s hard to say what will happen because it is too close.
I dropped to 74.9 kg. So this was another good result for my new 45-minute hard workouts. This loss of .2 kg goes along with the first day of .1 kg. It’s such a hard workout, but the results are good so far. However, it’s hard to say whether there were any residual effect today from my gallstone attack. If you read the past 2 days of this blog, you will see that I had some wild weight fluctuations due to that medical episode. So while today’s results seem to have shown a more stabilized result, it’s just not possible to say. At any rate, the new workout needs about 15 to 20 days of results before I can get a better idea whether it is going to work for me in terms of weight loss or maintenance. Tracking in the short term is not perfect due to innumerable random factors. But the more days you track your diet, exercise, and weight, the more likely you will minimize the effect of these random variables (like this temporary medical condition).
