Weight Update 10.0

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Weight:  169 lbs.

I’m down one pound this week.  I truly hoped for more than that because I have been making a good effort with my workout and diet.  I can’t deny that I’m a little disappointed.

I’m also beginning to wonder about my body type.  I’ve read articles on body type before but today I found one that was particularly helpful.  It was called Determining Your Body Type – For Dummies (http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/determining-your-body-type.html).  After reading this article, I have come to the conclusion that I fit best into the endomorph category.  As described in the article, I tend to gain fat easily, while muscle is harder for me to put on.  I also carry the vast majority of my fat in my abdomen, hips, thighs and butt and my metabolism is slow.

I did further research and read 3 different articles with suggestions for workouts that are suitable to my body type and got mostly 3 different opinions.  The common threads I saw were weight and cardio training, with emphasis on cadio.  Given that I am in a weight/cardio combo training routine until the end of my summer challenge, I still hold out great hope that I will reach my goal of weight loss and BMI reduction at the end of August.

On a good note, my glute muscle injury has improved greatly so barring any further difficulties, I am confident I will be able to do my cardio on the treadmill on Tuesday 🙂 .
