I’m pissed.  I have a 5% weight loss right now and there’s a guy at 7.96% loss.  I should have delayed my “weight loss attack” by 1 week.  Here’s what I did:  I got home from Norway on 4/22 and weighed 230.  On 4/27 OTF weighed me and I weighed 224.6!!!!   That’s basically 6 lbs loss I didn’t get credit for. I have 14 days to finish this thing and and I’m to finish strong.  Aikido in the morning and burned 170 calories and OTF in the evening and burned 869 calories.

I had 5 meals each in the 480 calorie range, although I ran out of time to eat breakfast and was around 250 calories.
For the day I burned 2,939 calories.

Wednesday, May 24, 2017 – Day 24
Aikido in the evening and burned 420 calories.  Super hard class, required tons of empty minded concentration – if that makes any sense at all.  Got to work out with some hammers, the amount of power they generate is mind boggling to me!

I had 5 meals each in the 480 calorie range.
For the day I burned 2,893 calories.
I took in 2,391 calories.
The net deficit was 502 calories.
I slept 6:54
I drank 114 oz of water.
Bottom line – Today was a big win.

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 – Day 23
Aikido in the evening and burned 579 calories.  After having stem cells injected into my knees, my knees hurt at about 6 on the pain scale.  We also did an interesting exercise to gauge fitness on the mat specifically for Aikido.  1 repetition was attack, get a technique applied to you and then fall.  The idea was to do that 8 times in 30 seconds or less, I did it in 32 seconds.  Cool concept but out of my wheelhouse – at my skill level that feels way too high risk to do again.  I have to safely get my 50 year old, 6′ 2″, 215 pound body 12′ round trip on every fall – too many things can go wrong if I push hard enough to

Monday, May 22, 2017 – Day 22
OTF in the morning and burned 832 calories.  Had to skip Aikido to go to the kids school awards ceremony.  While I like to go, we had to sit through 2 ceremonies (different grades) with identical stuff.  I tuned out and played online chess.

Due to being trapped inside the Greensboro Aquatic Center the whole weekend I wasn’t able to prepare any food on Sunday.  When we got home I found the outside refrigerator open so everything in there went bad.  I ended up having a shake for breakfast.  But due to no food I ended up having a bar after OTF and promptly bonked 30 minutes later.  Luckily my Neeley’s Mealies came in and I had a good meal.
I had 4 meals
