Weekly Recap (March 22-29, 2009)

I can't believe it, literally, so I'm second-guessing my measurements, my scales, and my calipers.

Somehow, I managed to gain almost 2 pounds, while simultaneously dropping nearly 2 percent body-fat.

Granted, my compliance has been on a roll, but I just didn't expect to hit single-digit body-fat for at least a few more weeks, and especially not while GAINING weight.

I know caliper measurements, particularly self-assessed measurements, are far from perfect, but I try to be as consistent as possible, if nothing else, measuring and re-measuring until I get the same reading 3 times in a row.

It would be a little easier to believe if I had dropped 2 pounds, since my waist and other circumference measurements did decrease, but where did that 2 pounds come from and where did it go?

The only thing I can do now, to be sure, is keep up with my high-compliance and continue doing what's working.

Don't get me wrong, I'm ecstatic over the exceptional results, but I'll need at least one more consistent reading next week to really let things sink in.

Then, it will be time to increase calories ever so SLIGHTLY to start adding a few more pounds of lean mass, while keeping body-fat in single-digit territory.

Single-digit bodyfat was my short-term goal, and my absolute ultimate goal that I've had for a very long time is to be 200 pounds at 9% body fat.

Let's see if I can have another beyond-belief week and add 10 pounds of lean mass in the next 7 days without an ounce of body fat! :)

That about raps it up for this week. See you next Sunday and don't forget you can follow my daily updates over at
