Another day, another update. It’s day 4 of my weight loss challenge and to be honest I am quite baffled by the results. I did not workout, because I decided to give my body a break.
The pull-ups and dips absolutely killed my biceps, triceps and my back. Even drinking a cup of tea is a challenge. 🙂
But enough about that, let’s talk numbers.
Weight: 88.5 kg (195.1 lbs) / up 0.5 kg (1.10 lbs) from yesterday.
Body-fat percentage: 35%
TDEE: 2200 calories with exercise.
As you can see I added half a kilogram in one day, and now it shows 88.5 kg. I assume this is my real weight. The day before I most likely lost a lot water weight, that’s why the ‘weight loss’ seemed so quick.
No training today. Decided to give my body a break.
Although, I haven’t trained today, I decided to go for a brisk one hour walk. Ended up walking around 5.5 kilometers, which is not bad.
Although my feet are full of blisters now, because of my new sneakers. Painful, but totally worth it! A rough estimate would be that I burned around 350-400 calories during that.
And here’s the view I witnessed today. I even came up with some inspirational and helpful text for it, because reasons.
What I ate today
Back to eggs, because I love them. Also, eggs are much easier to track, because I generally have an idea of how many calories is in one large egg. With oatmeal, or any other stuff you’d need food scales for better accuracy.
So this is 2 egg omelette, some cheese, ham, pickles (yes, pickles), 2 slices of rye bread and some cherry tomatoes on the side.
I am surprised that my omelette making skills have improved, probably because I am trying to do it for pictures. My omelette doesn’t usually turn out this ‘perfect’.
Lunch: 800 calories
It gets pretty boring posting the same meal over and over again, but what are you going to do? I am not going to prepare new meals every single day just to take a picture of it. I cooked a whole pot of rice and I need to finish it up, or it will go bad.
But, today I added some pickles, because I love them and I don’t understand people who don’t. Plus, two slices of seed bread. Careful though, 1 slice of such bread is almost 100 calories, so always make sure you read the nutritional label, because food can be deceiving.
And topped it off with some ajika, which is a very popular hot, spicy Georgian dip.
Dinner: 300 calories
Dinner, or should I say last meal of the day was vanilla quark with some sour cream to thin in out and… drumroll… raspberry jam (ran out of strawberry one)
Other snacks: 400-600 calories
Did some snacking on sandwiches between meals. Drank a few cups of green tea with jasmine, because I read an article on how good green tea is. Green tea is probably way too overhyped like most food nowadays.
In a nutshell
All in all, was a decent day. Although, my caloric deficit (200-300 calories) seems to be not that significant, it’s still progress. Looking forward to jumping on the scale tomorrow. And looking to workout as well.
