Chris’s 30 Day Reboot Day 17

Chris’s 30 Day Reboot Day 17- The inevitable has happened, and it’s one of the downfalls of checking your metrics everyday (in this case weight and body fat), the scale has crept back (albeit, not by much). It’s too early to panic, we’re still on track, and his morning routine has been slightly disrupted without the coffee so that plays a role in how the scale is reading. No worries.

One thing I noticed is that Chris, for as active as a guy as he is, probably isn’t getting sufficient protein in his diet, so we’re working on correcting that.  Right now he hovers right around the 12% mark, and our goal is to bring that up to at least the 20% mark. That means replacing some of his carb intake with a bit more fish, chicken and eggs in his diet.

  • Frustration
  • Poop

It was a bit frustrating to jump on the scale this morning and see no progress.  I ate clean yesterday.  Am I doing something wrong?  I feel fine and have good energy but the numbers are stuck.

Part of it is that I’m weighing myself when I get out of bed in the morning, before the poop. My biorhythms have settled into a new pattern.

The most efficient way for me to run my day is to go straight into the office, workout and shower up for work.  This means I’m only making a cup of tea to sip on the way to work.  I still cook my oatmeal, but I don’t eat it.  I throw it into a container and toss it into my backpack for after my workout.

Without the coffee and breakfast to prime the pump.  Things sort themselves out by the time I get to the gym.  It’s a good rhythm.

It’s also a light week for me.  Not my usual burn rate.

Didn’t sleep great last night. Woke up from the cough (still have this nagging cold) around 1:30.  Dog decided to go out at 4:30.  Ce’st la vie suburban.

Brought some rice yesterday so I could eat something more substantive around 4:00pm at work.  I was finding that just the fruit was making me ravenous.

It’s all good.  I’m grateful.  I’m healthy.  I would like to see more progress.
