Fitness Update—Week 3

This is my weekly fitness updates. I’ll be posting one every Monday for the foreseeable future.

I update a shared iCloud spreadsheet every day. Follow along!

Weight & BMI

Finally! The increased activity is showing results.

Today’s weight: 190.4 lbs. with a BMI of 28.1.

Date Weight +/- BMI Fat
March 23 191.8 0 28.3 37.1%
March 30 190.1 -1.7 28.1 40.0%
April 6 192.6 +2.5 28.4 36.0%
April 13 190.4 -2.2 28.1 34.2%

Note: the fat mass reading is inconsistent. It’s just the way the scale works. I’m including for the sake of completeness.

Blood Pressure

This weeks reading: 120/90 with a pulse of 85.

I took my BP after having a large coffe this morning. I need to remember to do it earlier.

The eventual goal is my normal 110/70. More exercise is needed.

Steps

This is a screenshot of my weekly report from the Jawbone weekly email report.

I hit my step goal every day except Wednesday this past week. This is about what I planned. I knew it would a take a few week to get in the swing of walking everyday. This will work out when I raise the goal to 7,000 for the next four week block.

According to my spreadsheet I need to increase my daily step count to 6,649 to average 6,000 steps/day for this month. That’s looking to be within my range for this week.

Sleep

I’m getting better about keeping a consistent bedtime. I also made my 7 hour sleep goal twice.

Snacking

My meal times have been inconsistent. So that means some days I ate four times, other twice. I need to plan meals better.

Summary

I haven’t been measuring but some clothes are starting to fit better. This week went well, and getting the walking in is easier. Like everything, it takes practice.
