74.1 kg and lost .2 kg
Today, I would have preferred running because of yesterday’s break day. But now that I am doing more of the nonjogging calisthenics workouts, it is important to keep doing these sessions on a pretty regular basis. So I decided it was time to do that instead of running today.
I didn’t track how much weight I lost during the workout. But it is definitely less than when running nonstop. So far, the most I have seen is a loss of .4 kg for one of these 45-minute workouts. And one session saw a loss of only .2 kg.
Here’s the good news on today’s results. I lost .2 kg overall, and that makes a total of 3 days with weight loss on this new session. Compare that to 2 days with weight gain. So that means 60 percent of the days so far have resulted in weight loss.
The bad news is that I am still .4 kg over in these 5 sessions. However, that is clearly because of one day that had a weight gain of .8 kg. In the short term, that looks bad. But what happened that day is that I ate way too much, resulting in the substantial weight gain.
If the trend of the majority of days of this new workout showing a weight loss continues, then the overall figure of weight gain (.4) will likely be erased and become a weight loss. I saw these kinds of streaks even in full weight-loss mode. Although losing almost 70 pounds, I would pretty often gain weight over a period of 5 or 6 days. This is especially true when you have one really bad day like the .8 kg of weight gain in this 5-day period.
Because it is so cold now, I have modified this nonjogging session to do it inside. It’s just too cold now to go out unless it’s a nonstop running session. Lying down on the ground and doing pushups when it is freezing outside is just not acceptable. So I am doing pushups, situps, and some lower-body calisthenics exercises inside. But the energy used during these workouts is similar since it’s the same except for one exercise type.
