resolutions update

It's been about three weeks since I began working on my  new year's resolution to get myself to 15% body fat. I wanted to wait a full month before measuring my self again, but next week I'll be in meetings in Richmond, VA. That means the nutrition will probably be on a down hill plain for a few days.

Last month when this project began I calculated my body fat percentage at 17.95%. I weighed 171 pounds with 30.69 pounds of total fat. My true waist measured 33.5 inches. My left and right arm 12.5 and 12.75 inches respectively. Legs measured 21 and 20.5 inches left to right.

Today measurements are as follows:
Total Weight 168 pounds
Pounds of Fat: 28.8 pounds
Percent Body Fat 17.2%
Left Arm 12.5 inches
Right Arm 12.75 inches
Left Leg 21 inches
Right Leg 20.5 inches
True Waist 31.75 inches

Looking at these numbers I can report some modest improvement. Most notably a .75% decrease in total body fat (1.89 pounds of fat). There hasn't been any change to total inches, expect for the true waist measurement. I'll hold of on making a judgement on this for now, and see if there is a trend over the next few months.

As for the savings account: its up by multiplier of  .25 from last month.

I think I'm OK with where I'm at today. The numbers are what they are, and what they are is objective. So for now; I plan on continuing the same program.

See you in March
