Weigh Ins

Weigh-In: Feb 4, 2010

This weeks numbers:

Weight: 211.8 lbs (down -4.4 lbs from last)
Body Fat: 24.0% (down -0.2% from last week)
LBM: 161 lbs (down -2.9 lbs from last week)

Although the overall weight is down, most of it was LBM which is NOT GOOD!!! I know I was a little dehydrated this morning as I didn’t drink much water last night at the seminar, but still not good at this point.

I’m going to up my daily calories by 200, and have a better refeed day on Sunday and see what happens next week.

Body Composition Testing

BodPod
BodPod Setup

I’ve always been curious to have my body composition test via an accurate method (water weighing, Bod Pod, etc) but could not find anywhere local….until today.

I did a Google search for “Bod Pod testing” and one of the results was an article from May 2009 that appeared in the Hamilton Spec newspaper.  It indicated that McMaster Univertisy has a Performance center with a Bod Pod, and that they do testing for the general public.  SCORE!

I called them up and I have an appointment on Monday Feb 8 @ 5:30 PM.  I’ll be bringing my OMRON Hand Held Body Fat tester with me.  Once I’m done in the Bod Pod, I’ll check with my OMRON to see what the difference is, then I can correlate between the 2 for future reference.

Currently, my OMRON is telling me around 24%.  I predict the BodPod will tell me around 26-27%.

Anyhow, I’ll report back on the experience & results Monday night. 😎

 

Weigh-In: Jan 28, 2010

Thursday mornings are my “Official” weigh in days, and I will post the results every Thursday.  I do weigh myself throughout the week, but fluctuations happen from diet, etc.

This weeks numbers look like this:

Weight: 216.2 lbs (down 1.8 lbs from last week)
Body Fat:
24.2% (down 1% from last week)
Lean Body Mass(LBM):
163.9 lbs (up 0.8 lbs from last week)

Not a bad week overall.
