Monthly Fitness Report for November 2011

It wasn’t the best month, and it wasn’t the worst. I have to admit something to you. When I publish a post here that is all motivating and has tips and tricks to avoid certain situations, it’s usually because I just passed through a situation and took some time to think about how I can get over it next time. My posts are almost always for me, and I just post them in case you need to read something like that as well. The reason I’m saying that is because even though I posted about having a great holiday season in terms of fat loss, mine has been mediocre at best. As much as I want to avoid the sweets of the season, I’m finding it pretty hard.

Monthly Fitness Report for October 2011

Welcome to my first monthly Fitness Report!
I got the idea for this from Patt Flynn, who posts his monthly income reports regularly. He’s extremely open about how much he makes and spends and how and what on. I thought that being that open about my fitness here might be just what “the doctor” ordered.
Every month I’m going to write a report about my fitness-related activities from the previous month. I may not be tracking calories and exact workouts (sometimes I will), but I will start posting monthly measurements and photos.

4HB Results: Proof That Slow-Carb Can Change Your Life

Do you know what your numbers are? Things like cholesterol, bodyfat, blood pressure, and resting blood sugar?

If you’re like me, you’ve been measuring your weight and keeping track of your inches. Maybe some of you have even gotten a bodpod or dexa scan.

We had a screening at work the other day. I signed up for it specifically because I thought they were going to measure bodyfat with a bio impedance monitor, and I needed to have my cholesterol taken.

I just a have one thing to say:

A Quick Personal Update

Part of the reason I haven’t posted much about my body recomposition progress is because there doesn’t seem to be a lot of progress. I fell off for a bit, but I’m back on now. As you’re probably well aware, I’ve had some trouble lately staying focused. I have had very spotty results since March, and I’ve started getting slightly frustrated as I watch others who were in the same boat as me leave me behind for skinnier pastures.

An FMF commenter offered sort of a “business analysis” of my diet, so over the course of several emails, he’s offered some suggestions for improvement.

4HB Results: A New Challenge Begins

I haven’t posted an update in three weeks. I can’t do that anymore. The point of this blog was transparency in my search for fitness, and I’m not being faithful to that.

To that end…

The Body Transformation Challenge

I have been taking a great blogging course online and became aware of the personal improvement website of one of the course creators. Serendipitously he had just posted a 90 day body transformation challenge that I immediately joined. I’ve been needing some kind push to get back out of the funk, and I think this is just what I needed.
