Third Week

Weight:  176

Bodyfat:  32%

That’s 21 days.

I think I’m on track to hit 173, although I wonder if hitting 170 would be a bit ambitious.

I’m trying to remember that I’m not racing to lose weight.  It’s a process of my body adjusting to where it should be if I’m eating clean and pushing my body.  It’s a metric of health.  It’s useful for inspiration, as small successes lead to big ones.

There are moments where I wish it was instantaneous.  But where would the fun be in that?  To get something without working for it diminishes the value of the object desired.  Immediate results (although, to be fair, this is fast) might lead to me returning to my previous condition.

Off to the Y for a few burpees, double unders and squats.

    I’m no math major or fitness guru, but according to my calculations, last week you gained 3 lbs of muscle and lost 4 lbs of fat — way to go, Papa G!

    You must be getting ripped…keep up the good work!

    By the way, I just started my 30-day paleo challenge yesterday, and I leave today for three days on the road with clients, which will be interesting! You’ll be my inspiration…
