10.2 – Rest. My Individual Challenge

Day 1 was a bootcamp that I modified on the fly to include mostly abs so I don’t have a good record of what we did. I can say it was lots of crunches, hip raises, some dog raises, flutters, standing elbow touches and boat to shoulder stand. My abs are sore today so I know it worked!

In order to see some changes, I am going to have to make some changes. This morning I hopped on the scale to see how far the last round at 51% put me back. I was relieved to see that I was up only 4 lbs weighing in at 236lbs. If I am going to get down to 220lbs I need to do the following:

Pick up with Fitday again. This will keep my diet strictly on track and maintain my focus.
Document every day, not just activity days with my weight, and occasionally my bodyfat % although the scale I use to measure fat isn’t the best.

In fact I have been toying with the idea of getting another scale that does hydration level in order to get a better idea about my fat levels. I am thinking about the Tanita 549, anyone with any experience with them is welcome to comment or fire me an email.

Watch my portion sizes a little more closely, although FitDay should keep that in check.
Sleep more. I tend to get around 5-6 hours a night, I would like to push that to 8. That means going to bed at 10pm which I am not used to by any stretch.
Drink more. I think my hydration is a little low at times, I need to pay a little more attention to that.

After all that, I have figured out what we did on Monday, and here is the run down:
