58 Days

It's going to take a lot to get me to be meeting my activity goal the Polar has for me. I think it's set to 12,000 steps or some crazy shit. I didn't even make it halfway yesterday. I am sure I won't today, either.

Weigh in day. 154.5, so down 6 in 3 weeks. Meh. I know that is a healthy rate of loss but for as little as I am eating, I expected more. Except I know that is not how it works - from my own damn experience!

Workout A

squat - 5x5x65 lbs - I used my bar, made sure I at least made it to parallel, and really focused on form.
db shoulder press - 5x5x20 lbs
push up - 3x8 - On my knees. Alwyn Cosgrove would be disappointed.
SHELC - 3x8 - Always a good time thrusting my hips in the air.
standing calf raise - 3x8x65 lbs
db fly - 3x8x10 lbs
Shaun T's 5 Minute Abs - I am so uncoordinated!

I am undecided on whether I want to wear my HRM strap when I do my strength training. I don't believe HRMs are all that accurate for weight lifting. But I don't like how much the Polar underestimates how much I did. Sigh.

Food

Breakfast - coffee w/ Splenda & creamer [12]
Lunch - cottage cheese, salad w/ homemade dressing [8]
Dinner - tilapia w/ sweet potato [7]

I'm really trying to not obsess over minute-to-minute and day-to-day shit. I need to take it week-by-week. I am already over all the tracking.

Wear the HRM for the weights anyway. It will make your graphs and recovery charts more accurate. Select strength training so when you look you can clearly see you were lifting for that session. What level activity do you have it set on? It doesn't go by steps. The Polar Flow page is a little different now so I'm not sure where to find it on the page but on the app and on the watch itself it will tell you what you have to do it reach your goal. Like I just checked my app and it says: 52 mins of Basketball (or high intensity) 1 h 34 m of mowing the lawn (or moderate) or 5 h 24 min of baking (or low). I'm only at 13% of my goal. Brady is home sick so I've just been sitting on my bed working and haven't really done anything today.

I did select ST, but just didn't wear the strap. I have no idea what activity level it is set for - light? IDK.Oh, it's Level 1, so I need to do 7 hrs 19 min of light household chores or run for 58 minutes.
