NingXia Red and Slique BarI lost the first two days of this week to the end of our trip that I mentioned last week. While I was away, I did have Slique Bars and NingXia Red with me which was a big help. I ended the week up 1.3 pounds this week to 254.8.

I managed to get in all my workouts, but I failed all the other categories. How can you pass up a dessert like this at a Father’s Day dinner? #YouHaveToLiveLife

J Alexanders Dessert

This week is a good example of why I love my iHealth Core wireless scale – my body fat was down to a new low of 21.1, my VFR (visceral fat rating) was at a new low, and my lean mass was up to levels I haven’t seen in a long while. What does this all mean? I feel great and I am excited by the areas that are improving, even if my total weight has plateaued a bit. These other improvements show me that I am still in the right track.

Report Card

I’m tracking 5 key categories that I have learned impact me the most. Here is my report card for this week:

Category Rating Comments
Total Calories Fail My average for the week was 2,719, quite a bit over my goal of 2,200 though still under a level where I should be seeing weight loss with my exercise level which is a little confusing.
Intermittent Fasting Fail My goal is to fast for 16 hours every day, but with my schedule this week I missed 2 days this week (while traveling).
Supplements Fail My goal with supplements is to make sure I am getting my NingXia Red every day with Slique Essence, taking my vitamins (Core Supplements) at least once a week, and replacing at least 3 meals a week with Slique Shake. This week I achieved the first two, but did not get my Slique Shake meal replacements.
Sugar Fail My goal is to average <60g of sugar per day and I averaged 81g this week. Deserts were the main factor taking me over this week, but I was a lot closer to 60 than last week.
Exercise Pass My target is 5 20 minute high-intensity workouts each week. This week I managed to get in all 5.
