This is a summary of my first week of the Biggest loser and my personal goals for the second week. Sorry if it’s boring, I just need to write about it.
I had a rough weeekend as far as the diet goes, well and the workouts. Not really rough, it was easy, as in none. Not food, of that I had plenty. You get the point. None-the-less, after the first week I still have done great. Here is a summary:
I will not have a weekend like that too often, it was a fluke situation. So my averages should go up next week. I did not feel weak for my workouts for the most part.
For the first week:
I ate a daily average of 1740 calories, or 1515 during the week and 2300 on the weekend.
I swam three times for a total of 2 hours and went 2200 yards (1 1/4 miles)
I ran on the elliptical two times for 1 hour 40 minutes and went 3.7 miles
I ran on the treadmill for 36 minutes and went 2.5 miles
I worked out an average of 320 calories a day, or 450 during the week and 0 on the weekend.
I had a food deficit of 470 and a workout deficit of 320 for a total of 790 each of 7 days, or 5000 calories total.
My weigh in this morning was 208.8, my first weigh in was 213.6, for 4.8 pounds lost.
In Biggest Loser fashion, this is 2.25% lost. For the life of the blog (216.2 starting weight) it is 3.42%.
Here is my goal for this week:
Food deficit average of 600 calories. (this is 1600 per day or my 1500 per day plus 700 calories where I go crazy)
Workout deficit average of 600 calories by doing this:
- swim(3) 2800 yards,
- treadmill (2) 7 miles,
- elliptical (2) 4 miles,
- bike(2) 24 miles
I am switching to just recording the calorie total for each meal and snack of the day after wasting inordinate amounts of time the first week, although it was worth it to learn. Ignoring weekend data, I ate on average: breakfast 290, snack 110, lunch 320, snack 105, dinner 595, snack 90. The last snack is only low because I ended up skipping it some, when I have it I am closer to 200 calories. This is my weak point, but having to go to bed earlier (for swimming lessons early tuesday and workouts in the evening after 8 pm making me tired) has helped me out.
