End Result: 74.9 kg after a break day (.3 kg of weight gain from the start of 74.6)
This was the first break day after 9 straight days of having an exercise session. My body certainly needed that.
The results were typical, with a pretty considerable weight gain of .3 kg. This is no longer surprising to me, and it suggest that my metabolism is really poor because of the consistent weight gain on almost every single break day.
The plan for Day 79 must be to work out. I recently took 2 break days in a row. But after jumping up .3 kg on this day, it would be very risky to take another break day for Day 79. So I must do some kind of exercise.
Although it’s getting close to the time to do another calisthenics session, those are not good for burning calories. So the better option for tomorrow is to do a running session since it’s time to try to bounce back from this bad day. Then, the day after is when I may go ahead and do a calisthenics workout.
After these Day 79 and 80 workouts, I can then reassess what I should do. This is going to depend on how much I weigh at that time.
One thing you can glean from this blog post is that I do all kinds of daily tracking, including my weight. This is a key to my success that most people don’t do. I found it very hard to lose weight until developing my tracking techniques. Tracking means more information, and information is power. Without information, you are just going to be guessing over and over again what is working and not working as far as losing weight. So learning to track using my Pentamize methods will give you the information that will unlock the road map to an easier weight loss system. You need to learn to track your diet and your exercise, not just one or the other. The more information you have, the better. This is why I track on a daily basis.
A lot of people will insist that you should only weigh yourself like once a week. Well, I can give you my personal experience on that. I don’t sit around reading books to learn how to lose weight. I did it by actually experimenting and creating my own system. When I was weighing and tracking occasionally, I always lost a small amount of weight or even no weight at all during some periods. And this was despite working out and trying to watch my diet. But when I started to track everything, what I discovered is that this added information allowed me to better assess when I was having a good or bad day. This tracking information became the ultimate key to my weight-loss success. If you want to know the specifics of how to do daily tracking, you can get my book.
