Siegels's Journal, 16 March 2018

Weight climbing a bit 😒, albeit I'm eating more to match caloric needs now, up to 2100 calories with 150+ grams protein per day.

Have been doing body fat measurements daily using bilateral caliper in three locations to keep perspective on slight daily weight fluctuations. Holding steady at ~7% since I renewed more aggressive weight training/cardio intensity and rigorous diet (worked with metabolism physiologist to calibrate method). I'm even enjoying the constant muscle aches and hunger. They remind me that my body is moving in the right direction, and I eat for fuel, not fun. Whatever works, right? And my clothes fit much better since dropping 4-5 pounds of adipose over the last 6 weeks.

Added an hour of palades (spelling?) yesterday so I could spend some exercise time with my wife. Was more like stretching and yoga than the hour of pushups I expected....but not bad as an active rest day.

Time to hit the gym, it's all about sticking to a routine and planning ahead for me, no thinking in the morning, just follow the plan. "Back day". Then back to work.

Happy Friday to all.
