Intermittent Fasting Week 36 It’s Yo Yo Time.

by Dave on September 5, 2009

Intermittent Fasting Week 36 , oh boy is this last 10 lbs or so proving hard to move. This week, according to the scales I have once again put back the 2lb lost the previous week. When I look in the mirror, if anything I think I look leaner. It was a bank holiday weekend here last weekend, it was also my wedding anniversary, so , yes I did indulge, but I also added in one extra fast during the week to compensate it. One of the great things with Intermittent Fasting is you are more aware of what you have consumed, after all, if you fasted, you didn’t eat anything, so not exactly hard to keep a track if it. !

In addition to the extra fasting day I also did my usual 5 mile walk every day, I do the walking because I enjoy it, not because I want to burn calories, but  it does burn at least 500 calories  ( depending on which website guide you use ) So with the fasting and the exercise ,what I know is that I have not eaten  an extra 7000 calories above my maintence level, so I am going to assume this is more about fluid retention, and perhaps some muscle gain , than an increase in body fat.  My belt is always a good indicator, and I am not having to loosen it a notch.

I know we are told not to go by the scales too much, but the fact is , we do, and even though I am sitting here writing that I am ok with it, I am still disappointed when the scales show I gained weight.

On the bodyweight exercises, I am getting stronger, I can do 7 pull ups on my first set. A month ago I could not do a single pull up without assistance, so I am very pleased with myself on this. Of course, yesterday I tried to get ahead of myself, and after posting about the Bar Barians the other day , I tried to do my first muscle up, let’s just say I need to walk before I can run.  They make it look so easy, but trust me , it isn’t ;)   I could not do one. I know there is a technique involved too, but no way am I strong enough, but I have set a goal to do it before the end of the year.

I think Jaz in this video below is safe from me showing him up on Bondi Beach for a while yet !
