The last 2 weeks did not go exactly to plan but I will count them as a success. I did cardio @ 4 times per week, not 7 per week, and did only 1 weight session each week instead of 3. On the eating better front I did good and only had 2 “Cheat Days”. Even with the lighter schedule I did get down to 281.4 which is a drop of 5.4 pounds. Since my goals were to stabilize and stop gaining weight, I will count that as a success.
The fewer workouts were primarily due to a lot of outdoor activity which in themselves were workouts. Moved 600 pounds of rock and @ 90 cubic feet of mulch. And doing that in the heat & humidity clearly helped. Had a family picnic this past Saturday which was a “Cheat Day” (BBQ Chicken, Steak, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Cake, & BEER). My weigh in last Friday was lower than this morning but July 31st was the goal date so that is the number above.
Stage 2 runs through Oct. 25th, which is the date of my surgery. I would like to drop @ 25.4 pounds and get down to @ 256 by then. That is 12 weeks so just over 2 pounds per week which is not an aggressive goal.
As for Golf, it is going OK, not great but not absolute crap either. I need to keep my head still. I’ll look over TST for some drills to work on but if any can point me to a thread it would help.
