This is a documentation of day 3 of 39 (I update the morning after a day is complete)

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 – Day 3
2 hours of Aikido in the evening and burned 441 calories.   Super advanced stuff, spent most of the class confused.  Did more Jiwaza and jacked it all up.

I had 5 meals each in the 480 calorie range.
For the day I burned 3,173 calories.
I took in 2,427 calories.
The net deficit was 746 calories.
I slept 7:25 (used Sleep Works but Amira got in our bed at 1 am)
I drank 129 oz of water.
Bottom line – Today was a win but I was hungry at the end of the day.
