Day 14. Workout 8.
Intermediate V-Burn, 8 exercises, 6 rounds, 10 reps per exercise.
Jumping Squat, Hand Walkout, SLDL-Arms Spread, Clapping Pushup*, Jumping Jack, Reverse Lunge, Pike Pushup, Squat Thrust
- For clapping pushups I do 4 clapping pushups and 6 T-pushups.
V-Burn Time: 29m52s
Weight and Measurements: 3/24/12 - Current = change
Weight: 230.4 - 222.4 = 8 lbs
Waist: 39.5 - 38.5 = 1 inch
Hips: 46 - 45 = 1 inch
4 pounds and half an inch per week are most excellent loss rates! On 3/17 I had a BOD-POD body fat test and it reported me at 22.1% (excessively fat). I have another one scheduled for 5/10 (just shy of 2 weeks after my V-diet ends). It should be fun to see the difference. If I end up around 216 and lose 100% fat, that'd put me under 17%. We'll see how it turns out.
Chicken Fried Steak (round steak tenderized to hell, egg, almond flour, spices, 2 TBS butter for frying)
Baked Potatoes (potato, 1/4 TBS butter)
Potato Wedges (potato, spices, coconut oil)
Salad (spinach, mushrooms, bell pepper, 75% reduced fat cheese, olive oil and balsamic for dressing)
"Gravy" (bacon drippings, arrowroot powder, coconut milk, spices, almond flour)
Biscuits (almond flour, egg whites, coconut flour, butter, baking soda, salt)
Bacon, Sausage patty, more 75% reduced fat cheese to go on a biscuit
And watermelon for dessert.
Verdict: I need to use more frying oil for the steaks. My cast iron pan absorbed all the oil while heating. The gravy/sauce was delicious, but I need to keep it soupier while it's cooking since it thickened up a lot once it cooled. Salad, potatoes, and watermelon were all delicious.
