Last week I mentioned that exercise has become a regular activity or, to clarify that thought, regular physical activities have become a part of my routine now. At least two nights a week I’ve been playing basketball and, aside from the aches and pains of getting my body moving again, it’s become a very enjoyable experience.
The first time I stepped on the court was the first time I had done so in a very long time. The picture above is one of the results of that night â€” Monday of last week if you want to be exact. I bought some brand new Converse shoes to play in and after roughly four hours of playing and running around I ended up with a beaut of a blister on my right foot but I also managed to get another blister, though not as bad, on my left foot in the same spot â€” which I would call a two-fer.
This week, however, I’ve gotten over the soreness mostly and the blisters have pretty much disappeared. So once again I hit the courts in my now slightly worn in Con’s for another four hours of high impact, knee-jarring exercise. Now that my body is getting used to all this work I must confess â€” or, if you will, am going to brag â€” that even though it’s only been a week I’m already seeing some improvements in both my game and fitness level. Woohoo!!
All right, all right, enough of the crap, time for this weeks stats:
- Weight: 172.4 lb.
- Belly inches: ?? â€” still no tape measure
- BMI (according to halls.md): 24.7 kg/m2
That’s a total of 2.6 lbs. lost and 0.3 kg/m2 of fat gained (possibly because I’m 29 now) since last week.
Here are the grand totals for the entire diet so far:
- Weight loss: 12 lb.
- Inches lost: 2″ or more, I really need to measure this
- BMI drop (according to halls.md): 2.4 kg/m2
