Week 7, cycle 2

Well this week was a disappointing weigh-in.  Here are the measurements:

Weight: 100.6 Kg

Fat: 29.9 Kg

I did eat more carbohydrates this week than normal, as I wanted to give my body a rest from the strict diet without changing my diet too much.  I included more complex carbohydrates, but still ate sensibly.  The decision to do this was also influenced by the fact that I started swimming this week.  I will be going 2-3 times a week, for around an hour each time.  This week I went twice.  Again, I take comfort from the fact that my weight from fat is below 30Kg.  That has stayed fairly consistent over the last few weeks, so I really need to get over this plateau, though at the same time, I realise that I may be increasing muscle mass which is a good thing, and that in itself will add to my weight.    Let’s see if I can push through it this week with extra cardio work.

Andy writes for a number of health related sites but has always been fascinated by alternative medicine and home remedies. His deep interests in nature and the body's innate ability to heal itself (given the right condition) have lead him to a pivotal time in his life - and so, Holistic Home Fitness was born. While it's relatively new at the moment, Andy wants to build this site into a huge reference site for a more holistic approach to health and fitness.
