What Happened To My 100-Day Exercise Test?

Recently, I suspended my 100-day test of flexible exercise. It made no sense to continue that when I realized that my new techniques might have way more potential.

From the very beginning of my snacks-only dieting technique, I was breaking even and actually even losing a little weight even on days with no exercise. Since the 100-day test was not going all that well under my old diet and it would not make sense to suddenly change my diet in the middle of a test, the most productive course seemed to be to suspend that experiment and replace it with the “snacks only” diet.

If you look at the snacks-only test more closely, though, it still includes variable exercise sessions. I am having both exercise and non-exercise days. It’s just that I didn’t want to mix results using the old diet with results of the new diet. The difference is that this new test is focusing on diet instead of exercise. But the biggest reason of all for suspending the 100-day test is that I am much more confident of success on the snacks-only diet instead of flexible exercise routines. The exercise freedom and flexibility are still there, but the focus is on eating snacks only instead of worrying about how much I am exercising.

I will lay out the differences so far between my old and new diets in tomorrow’s blog. But it’s a certainty that my weight is increasing far less during the day (before sleeping) than before. This naturally produces a better end result in terms of weight loss or maintenance since my final weigh-ins in the morning occur before eating anything else. I weigh in and then eat my first snack of the day.

Today is my first day on the new diet after a 90-minute workout. The concern with this is that the substantial amount of exercise might make me hungrier than usual. But as of 7:45 p.m., I was sitting at 78.5 kg, or 1.2 kg over the day’s starting weight of 77.3. That is pretty comparable to the other days so far so long as I have only one more small snack. A 1.4 increase would incur some risk of weight gain, but it’s hardly unreasonable. When I compare tomorrow, you will see just how much more I used to eat when measuring by this daytime weight increase.

After eating a little pork and less than a full carrot as my last meal and then going to the bathroom, I was right back at 78.5. That was the last snack of the night, so things are looking good. Under this diet regimen, it seems the key is to remain a little hungry but fairly satiated almost all the time, but never starving. Finding that balance appears to be the make-or-break factor. I’m not sure there is any way to do this scientifically. For me, I am just basing it on eating about 8 snacks per day, somewhat evenly spaced apart. But other dieters may prefer a different number of daily snacks.

When I woke up at 6 in the morning, I was at a disappointing 78.0 kg. That is a pretty bad overnight weight loss. However, it was also 6 hours before the official weigh-in. This still gives time to shed a lot more weight. Just sitting around, I seem to lose roughly .1 kg per hour. But since that number varies so much, I don’t know if I can break even today.

Things are going from bad to worse. 3 hours later, I was still weighing in at 78.0. That is odd. I don’t know if running 90 minutes and losing water weight causes the body to retain water in the ensuing hours. But my tracking history has always shown better results with more exercise. However, my diet was so different before that past results aren’t necessarily a reliable indicator. That is why I am going to keep testing with this new diet. I hope this is just my body resisting losing too much weight too fast. If that is the case, it could actually be a good thing. My goal is healthy and natural weight loss. But it seems very odd to retain this much weight when my worst day so far has been a gain of .3, and I had a good diet yesterday. I imagine every diet plan has ups and downs, but this seems excessive.

The day ended at a very disappointing 77.6, for a weight gain of .3 kg. This is the second day after a workout day that has shown a gain. I won’t speculate on any reason for that at this time because 2 days of tracking is virtually meaningless.

This Is The Best Day I Have Ever Had In Pentamize Tracking History

Today was the 5th day of my new diet, and all have been break days. Far and away, this turned out to be the best day so far. In fact, in some ways, it is the best day that I have ever had.

I lost .6 kg today, getting down from 79.4 to 78.8 kg. That is not even close to the record for most amount lost in a day. The reason I say it feels like the best day I have had is that I lost .6 kg even though this was a break day. I don’t recall coming close to that except when coming off of a big cheat day, where it is common to lose more than usual when the excess food digests.

I have now actually lost weight in the first 5 days of trying my new dieting techniques. Things are surely peaches and cream at the moment, and it’s a nice surprise.

When I was developing my Pentamize tracking system, I was actually surprised at that time that almost every single break day was resulting in a weight gain. In fact, it was even worse than that because even days with 30 minutes on an elliptical trainer were averaging a small weight gain. I couldn’t believe how hard it was to lose weight. And it really has been super hard to lose then maintain in the almost 2 years that I have been doing this (including the 7 months before starting the tracking system).

Now, I may be finding out that some relatively simple diet changes were all I needed to make it a little easier. However, it’s still way too early to conclude anything, as I am only 5 days into this new diet. But I am committed to continuing this and know that I will probably have to start working out some again. In fact, I want to work out some to keep the muscles and lungs in decent shape.

I am still suspending the 100-day test for now because that test was designed to use my old diet. I was having some difficulty with that test due to so many break days, which I don’t normally even have up until recently. But I believe I can still maintain my weight under the old diet by averaging roughly 75 minutes a day. That is too time consuming, and the hope is that this new diet can reduce that even more. I still want to run, but almost 2 years of running 90 minutes on nearly a daily basis still seems wrong. Why do I have to work out so much? This new diet may finally give me that answer. I love the yogurt and meatballs I have given up for now, but my body demands less exercise if possible. It’s almost insane for a non-long-distance runner like me to run like 40 miles plus per week. I will continue to abstain from those foods and keep on eating only small snacks (nothing approaching a full meal even at breakfast time). For a long time, I ate a larger breakfast and then smaller meals the rest of the day. Not anymore. Even breakfast is a small snack.

Day 1: gained .3 kg
Day 2: lost .2 kg
Day 3: gained .3 kg
Day 4: broke even
Day 5: lost .6 kg
79.0 to 78.8 overall (lost .2 kg)
all 5 days so far are break days

Temporarily Suspending 100-Day Test To Focus On New Diet Techniques

Something unexpected has happened that has caused me to suspend my 100-day test of flexible exercise. It is Monday, February 12, 2018, and I may have discovered a key moment on diet. So I need to focus on this now because it has the potential to dramatically reduce my required exercise time.

I have always been uncomfortable having to run 90 minutes on almost a daily basis just to maintain. This is for maintenance mode, not full weight loss mode. When I was about 50 to 70 pounds overweight, I was losing a lot of that extra baggage without having to constantly run for 90 minutes. But after losing most of that excess weight, it seems I have to work out even more to maintain. But this has been my observation without ever changing diet.

Today, I did gain .3 kg. However, I did it with no exercise at all. This was somewhat of a surprise, as I am very often .5 kg or more over on break days and even pop up close to 1 kg over on particularly bad days.

I got to thinking about what may be different on this day and noted that I only had one cup of my usual .25 kg yogurt. I also had no meatballs today. The yogurt and meatballs have been something I have eaten virtually every day for close to years now. I have always known that these 2 foods are not the most nutritious choices (the yogurt has quite a bit of sugary fruit added). But since I did lose over 60 pounds eating this stuff, I made the decision to stick with them. That now has to be seriously reconsidered.

Since I did gain .3 kg today, there is obviously not enough information to go on as far as my diet changes and how successful they might be (although I am writing this a few days late, and things are looking good). But today, something clicked in my mind that cutting out the yogurt might actually help me a lot in reducing how much exercise I have to do to achieve successful weight maintenance.

I have made the decision to not go to the store and buy any of that yogurt. The day after today, I also decided not to get any of the meatballs, either.

In tomorrow’s blog, you will see that I actually lost weight while again not exercising. It is also a good time to do this because of my sore and sprained ankle.

Going forward, I will have to run some and see if it’s possible to maintain this diet with exercise. Sometimes, exercise can cause you to eat more, so that does have to be tested. The hope is to have regular runs of 30 to 45 minutes instead of 90 minutes, with longer runs reserved for recovery from cheat days.

I ended the day at 79.3 kg, up from 79.0. I ate about 3 chicken patties, a pizza weighing about .35 kg, 3 small rolls, an apple, a banana, a few crackers, and about 25 or 30 french fries. I ate small meals all day long, with the pizza being the biggest meal and probably too big. I’ll try to have only small snacks from now on.

How To Do Averaging Over Multiple Days When You Have a Change In Schedule That Prevents Timely Weigh-Ins

Days 506 to 509

I am doing a 3-day average for the 3 days of this blog post because it is not possible to do consistent daily tracking.

I have a day trip on Friday that starts before my Thursday weigh-in time, so it’s not possible to even do the weigh-in. Further, I don’t have time to work out because I’ll be on a bus during the usual time and in a different town for a few hours.

Starting Weight For This Period: 78.3 kg

The process of averaging is simple. But you must have 2 things:

1. A starting weight for the multi-day tracking period;
2. An ending weigh-in taken at about the same time of day as the starting weigh-in.

Example:

Monday at 8 am: 100 kg
Thursday at 8 am: 101 kg

Now, take the total gained (or lost) and divide it by the number of days. It is 3 days in this example.

1 kg divided by 3 days is .33 kg of weight gain per day on average.

The disadvantage of averaging is that you can’t track daily records, such as the most weight gained or lost in a day or “what happened when I ate all those enchiladas on Tuesday.” Average results are less valuable for analyzing different exercise and diet choices, so I only recommend it when you have no other choice.

When you have to average days, it may affect your overall daily averages for tracking purposes. The important thing to remember, though, is that your system is only for you, anyway. My exact diet and my exact exercise routine is not going to work for someone else. So whether your results are scientifically perfectly accurate or not doesn’t really matter. What does matter is the overall result.

It’s not realistic for most people to follow the same exact schedule every single day. The important part is to not make excuses to get out of exercising or to make excuses that attempt to justify excessive cheating.

To avoid getting too far off your schedule, you may need to do an extra exercise session. I am possibly going to do one extra session this time, which is why I am opting for a 3-day average instead of averaging 2 days. The additional day gives me time to fit in that extra session to make up for the one I am missing on Friday morning. I am not sure yet when to do that session, but it will have to be on Friday or Saturday night.

The extra session I am talking about is not actually an extra one at all. It is a makeup session or workout. It is Saturday morning and I have still not done any workout. Because my foot appears to be feeling better, I think I will go ahead and give it a rest this morning. I will probably have to make this a 4-day average instead of a 3-day one. I do not recommend going over 2 or 3 days of averaging. However, this is a special case. If another 12 hours of rest can help my foot, then it’s well worth it.

Thursday (includes Friday morning): no exercise – 1 session behind
Friday (includes Sat. morning) – 2 sessions behind

On Saturday throughout the day, it will be important to control my diet. Things could potentially get way out of control here, as a reduction in exercise really needs a corresponding reduction in food intake. I probably can’t make up 2 sessions by Monday morning. That would take 4 sessions in less than 48 hours. So across a span of 4 days, it looks like one day will be classified as a break day.

Saturday morning weigh-in: 80.1 kg

This 80.1 kg is a large increase of 1.8 kg, but that is with no exercise at all so far over this averaging period. It’s misleading at this point due to the lack of exercise. So while the numbers look terrible now, they will improve.

Sunday morning weight: 79.8 kg

This result was a shock. I did not even work out yet but somehow lost weight over this 24-hour period. The only thing I can think of is that I had only one cup of yogurt. I did also refrain from eating one last snack, but I fully was expecting to gain some over this period. It looks like I am going to have to just stop eating yogurt for a while and see how things go. Of course, this one-day result does not prove anything. But I have been concerned for a while that .5 kg of yogurt per day might be too much. I’ll probably replace that with fresh fruits and vegetables or maybe oatmeal.

I am now on 3 days of break days in a row. The foot is thanking me, although I must admit it is still hurting some. It’s not going to be totally healed in the next 24 hours, but this time will hopefully make it easier to run when I start up again tomorrow. Also, not doing an extra workout will allow me to record 3 break days and one workout with my 4-day average. Finally, trying to do an extra run is normally fine, but it’s riskier when I am already battling injury. The unexpected weight loss this past 24 hours tips the scale in favor of not doing an extra workout. I’ll still have gained weight over this period, but it’s with a more rested foot.

Monday morning: 80.0 kg

Again, I had no yogurt and had a nominal weight gain of .2 kg before running. I ran this morning for 90 minutes and had a fairly average loss of 1.0 kg after running in the snow and wind the whole time. On the plus side, the sprain from last week is much less painful, and the nagging pain that started before that was also a little better.

So over the course of 4 days, I had 3 break days and one 90-minute run and gained .7 kg, from 78.3 to 79.0. All in all, that is better than I would have expected. It still shows that exercise is vital, though. The most surprising thing was actually losing weight from Saturday to Monday morning without exercise. That is when I ran out of yogurt. I am going to completely stop eating yogurt for at least a week and see how things go.

Bad Foot Pain And Danger Zone Somehow End In Breakeven Day

Day 505

The day’s diet performance was another failure. I started at 78.3 and rose to a max of 80.2 or possibly even 80.3. Coming off a day with a disappointing calisthenics workout instead of jogging, the disappointments are starting to pile up now. I am going to have to be even more diligent going forward because I am going in the wrong direction at this point. Part of it is due to injury, but I have no excuse for diet failures.

I got into the Danger Zone again. This was not the plan. Some of that was soup with quite a bit of broccoli in it. Although something like soup is probably not a bad diet choice overall, it can have a disadvantage when it comes to tracking. The high water content can cause a large initial gain in weight. How quickly this will be digested can vary, so it can temporarily look as if you have eaten too much. The same concept applies if you are eating a lot of vegetables.

Despite all this, I probably did eat a little too much today and am in trouble. My weight was still 79.5 in the morning. That was 1.2 kg over the start. Not good. Even with a sprained ankle, I am forced to run. Otherwise, it is going to be a complete disaster.

I did jog for 90 minutes and have experienced about as much pain as I have experienced while still being able to run. There was a time when my shin and back were hurting so badly that I had to stop running. Today, my right heel was giving me fits. However, I was able to put as little pressure as possible on it and keep going. On the bright side, the part of my ankle that got sprained 2 days ago did not give me much pain. It may have slowed me down some but appears to be healing fast.

Unfortunately, the painful heel does not seem to be getting better and was actually at its worst so far today. But it seems to be a simple matter of dealing with the pain. If I can just deal with that, the heel won’t stop me from exercising.

My run result was a major disappointment. I lost .8 kg only even though my heart rate was a decent 128 at the end. I really needed something better than that and don’t know why a decent run (despite the bad ankle) produced such a low weight loss. After running, I was 78.7 and then 78.6 after the bathroom.

Luckily, I went to the bathroom and lost .3 kg to finish the day. The unlikely final result is that I broke even. On a day in the Danger Zone and having a crappy exercise result, that is a good final showing.
