A decad is a set of ten. Decade used to also refer to ten days, but it’s fallen from use. I’ll be making a report like this every ten days. I also took some special photos for the occasion. They’re useless right now but will serve to track future progress.
I’ve lost 4.3 kg in these first ten days (official goal is 3 kg per decad). Although the start was rocky, you can see in the previous chart that the last few days have had a steady-high effort in exercise and diet. Speaking of diet, here’s the chart (global table now has butter):
Breakfast was the usual 2 protein pancakes with one egg (+2g butter). I tried a cup of tea, but it just tastes like bitter water without the sugar. I had a big avocado at noon, 172g of chicken breast (+10g olive oil) for lunch, 89g more for dinner (+10g olive oil) and a shake before bed. Fat got higher than 70f, that’s why I only got a 9 in Diet. I must eat less avocado.
My cardio performance was the best so far. The caffeine really helped. I did have some slight nausea for some moments throughout the morning, maybe due to taking the tablet on an empty stomach, or maybe it was the intensity of the workout.
I’ve learned that Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis is useless in its inaccuracy. BIA is the technology behind the feature of digital scales in which they estimate your body fat percentage, muscle mass, bone density, etc. I had planned on reporting that too. From now on I’ll be using a measuring tape on my waist for a more objective tracking.
I’m really sleepy so that’s the end of it. Tomorrow’s a VERY special day, you’ll read why. I had 6 cigs.
ERRATAS – Food charts in D-9 and D-10 aren’t adding the protein and fat of the eggs to the totals. Also, the number of isolate protein servings (“…protein x2”) in D-11 and D-10 should be 3.
