Rest day.

70 min of yoga, some post hole digging.

Been a lot of discussion on eating.

As I like to test things on myself I'm going to test the calories in vs calories out on a paleo diet with some dairy (in fact I've been doing it for about 5 days now).

I'm using that iPhone app I found to keep track.

Basic premise: 1 pound = 3,500 calories (yes I know, I know...), at 1 1/2 pounds per week body weight loss, that is 5,250 calories total deficit per week, or 750 cal per day.

The program uses this methodology.

Calories allowed = 750 < BMR + Exercise.

My BMR = 1864.7 and since I am a pretty active guy I used the Harris Benedict Equation to up the BMR to 2929 per day. With the deficit of 750 this gives me 2179 per day.

So CA = (2979-750) + E

Example from yesterday:

2179 + 284 = 2463 total calories allowed for the day.

So far, not hungry and weight is going down!

Thanks for mentioning that iPhone app. I downloaded it yesterday, and its just like fitday on the go. I love it.

Also, good to see your accomplishing your weight loss goals. I myself have put on a pound this week, and hopefully will continue to. Its cool that we're both getting to our weight goals.

I like the app a lot, it is just like Fitday, but actually the iPhone version just seems more user friendly, perhaps just because I like my iPhone.

I think I'm going to make Sunday my "cheat" day where I don't go for a caloric intake. Tonight is Spicy Stuffed Eggplant and a really good Aussie Shiraz-Merlot blend. I'm a big fan of the Australian blends using Shiraz!

Extra rest day. Didn't feel up to it...but....

Get this, I found out today I can train with a local Oly and strength coach, free! Son of a bitch, just as I was liking gymnastics an opportunity like this presents itself. I think I am going to have to take it.

Right on! It'd be tough to pass up that opportunity.

I was looking forward to seeing what you were going to do with this bodyweight/gymnastics stuff, but golden opportunities like yours don't come across that often.

nice.. which is ironic, I got an email today from my coach saying he is opening up the lifting season in april.. also got a phone call form my old lifting partner a few hours later asking if I knew about it and that we need to get started back up... awesome.

Gymnastics + Oly = good combo
