Hopped on the scale this morning and found to my great dismay that I had gained one entire pound for the week. I wanted to blame the garbage man or the postman or my accountant, but if you check my posts you will see that my workouts were lacking this week. Plus I had that pizza.
This is not too surprising, though, weight programs are not always a constant downward trend, sometimes they fluctuate. I’ve proven to myself that my methods are sound (I am, after all, 10 pounds lighter than a few weeks ago), so I’ll just keep plugging.
The other disappointment is that my session with Trisha was rained out. So I’m down four workouts for the week.
Had some discussions online with someone who uses the super duper advanced scales that measure fat content as well. I bought two of them.
The first is from INEVIFIT (inevitable fitness). Cost about $60 on Amazon.
The second is from Ozeri, and costs about $33 on Amazon.
They each require that you input a lot of information about yourself, and can store information for 10 people. And they have similar measurement features.
I’m testing them out a bit, they are both fancy smancy and do multiple measurements, including estimates of percentage of fat, percentage of muscle, weight of bone, and of course overall weight. They measure within a pound or so of the scale that I am already using.
But here is the reason I bought two of them. I want to see how well they track each other over the next few months. I know I will be losing fat and gaining muscle, I want to know if they are consistent and reasonable. And if the cheap one works as well as the more expensive one, I will let you know.
