I did for a fact gain a half a pound over each of the past two months...
I was right when I guessed that I had - a couple of days ago. (link)
This was not muscle... but just regular old fat.
Fattie fat - fat. So - up one pound.
To be fair, I guess I did have Strep, back in October.
That was not an easy 3 weeks! Slow recovery.
28.1% Body Mass Index in July to
28.7% BMI now.
Still higher than I want. Obviously.
Lean mass stayed the same. 93 range.
Overall 9 pounds up since starting CrossFit.
6 pound of pure muscle.
But now, 3 pounds of pure fat.
My Trainer [Robert] said that some of the trans-fats
take up to 51 days to leave your body...
Because of the half-life!
My other Trainer [Sam] says I should eat more.
He says I eat pretty clean. But need to eat more.
Especially on CF days.
Some days I don't eat at all on CF days.
Especially with the fish I've been eating.
Might see some better numbers.
The other day - I saw an old friend and hugged her.
And she pulled back - and looked at me and said
"My - you are strong!"
I've been working on my posture, and it changes
the shape of the butt, of all things!
Someone mentioned I am getting a little
"Friday Night Booty" shaped butt.
Must be all those squats and lunges!
So this counts as the numbers for now!
